Introduction Well, Week 9 went pretty smoothly overall. We saw pretty nice verses from pretty much everyone, although I do think that more voting could’ve been done on the battles. Let’s try to improve on that this upcoming week in order to keep this league’s productivity up. I’m also implementing the Standings this week. They will in no way, shape, or form change any of the battles or match ups in the future, but they will show a more accurate depiction of where each writer ranks in the league. For those who haven’t seen, here are the official rules: A win is worth 10 points A loss is worth -10 points A win due to a no-show is only worth 5 points A loss due to a no-show is worth -15 points If you get no-showed against and your verse wins the No-Show Shine section in the Mag you will be awarded 5 points If you shut out your opponent in the votes it's worth 5 points on top of your win, so a shut out win is worth 15 points total You won't be deducted points if you get shut out Every appearance in the Championship Match is worth 5 points If your match ends in a tie it is worth 5 points Anything else that needs to be added in the future will be added on accordingly if necessary. I need everyone to go to the official rules and regulations thread and post how many points they have, according to the system. Once everyone who’s active does so I will post up the thread. If it starts taking a while to have everyone get their points in I will simply look them up, but it is very tedious for me to look up your stats and it will be much quicker and smoother if you all can supply them for me, so please, be sure to do so. Thanks in advance. Here’s the link to the thread: http://board.rapmusic.com/rapmusic-...ations-all-active-members-need-post-here.html With that said, let’s move on. 2. Recap In the Championship Match we saw two very different pieces in content from L. Kross and Blitz Kreig. In the end, they tied, and they’ll battle it out again in a 3 way match with last week’s Contendership Battle winner, MC Guttso. Guttso was able to oust me 3-1 in our battle and heads into the 3-way match with a record of 8-1. Main Stream was able to KO Shadow and advance to this week’s contendership match vs. Nu’maaN, who defeated Link Gash in a close battle. Pain defeated Soull in another close battle 4-2. Liquid shut out MADD ILL in their battle. WordZPerfecT won due to a no-show from Restproof. And in the final battle of the week Deep Pocketz shut out KDP in his RSTL debut.
