The RWZ Cypher Battle league An idea was brought to me by a few posters for a faster paced battle league. Nothing against the RBL, but I decide to make a thread gauging the responses of other posters on this issue. This thread is to ask questions or make suggestions for this league. If it turns out no one likes it, cool. We’ll scrap it and think of something else. The following is what we have so far. Feel free to add things or ask questions. A) It would be a 3 round format - 1 round battle - 1 round Open Mic - 1 round Topical 16-48 bars per round. MCs match/agree on bar length. Suggestions? B) 10 categories to judge battles. - Flow - Word play/Name play - Rhyme scheme - Punches - Personals - Humor - Vocabulary - Flips (in 2 round battles) - Creativity - Structure (legibility) All 10 categories will not be needed for votes to be valid, but we would prefer the list be copy/pasted for your vote with the poster’s names filled in for each category you think they won. 11 categories may be needed in case there is a tie. The voters may also write an explanation under each category explaining their vote. Suggestions? C).Anybody on RM can vote as long as they use the 10 category copy and paste vote guideline. Votes may be challenged if the poster is suspect. Mods will handle the process and reserve the right to overrule a poster’s challenge. Suggestions? D).RWZ will run for 8 weeks. - 2 week free for all - 2 week Quarterfinals - 2 week Semifinals - 2 week Championship rounds Suggestions? Please post your thoughts.
