    It won't happen.One of the other gigantic untruths is that there's a difference between text and audio other than vocal inflection,delivery,etc.The bars you write in a text league should be exactly the same bars that you spit live.No difference.The fact that some think there IS a legit difference is indicative of their failure to understand actual complete quality lyricism and the writing thereof,OR it's their inaccurate PREFERENCE,OR a combination of the two.The categories are an incredible help and aid.I've battled with categories for YEARS.Almost NEVER did the issues that you're concerned about arise,as everybody was on the same page from the gate.

    Ok cool - i like the idea of it just my only concern is.. what time constraints are you thinking of implementing in terms of how long your giving people to drop their verses(as there are more lines involved than say, your conventional comp verse)?

    I'm not sure yet. I'm only a spokesman for this shit and I don't have a whole lot of experience. Hopefully TaC, Deth, or LP can touch on that.

    tell me, Deth, how long have you been active on rm? i mean posting almost daily? how many leagues have you been apart of? how many have you helped run? how many have you ran? since i showed up in 2008, ive probably been the most active text head. dont tell me what isnt true about text. i was in the RBL when it was mostly talented heads, not this new wave of battlers who watch grindtime and try to emulate them. shit is different. in audio/live you can change the way words rhyme, you can break up the lines better. ive seen you, amongst other people write their verses in paragraph form and expect us to know where one line ends and the next begins. dont fuckin tell me shit about text.

    i've ran the RSTL for over 80 weeks, how long have you ran a league?


    jason, what i think you should do is jus have seperate tourneys.

    have an 8 week battle tourney
    8 week topical
    8 week pic battles
    etc

    Won't the amount of weeks depend on the turn out?

    Deth does have a good feel for things. I've been in tourneys with him on other sites over the last 8 years including illbattle, Emcee Battle, LiveMicSociety and others. I was the mod of text battles on EmceeBattle for two years (so have a good idea how things run) and my main concerns for setting up a tourney with the scale of writting that has been mentioned are:

    1. I have only ever seen a 3 round battle where each writter does an average of 48 bars per verse done on its own (not a tourney).
    2. Each of these battles with this many bars takes at least 2 weeks for all verses to be dropped (most take even longer).
    3. Due to the above facts the tournament will lose interest because battles will take for ever and then you have to wait for peeps to vote and there will be a high probability they won't coz they've totally fallen asleep by then.

    yeah and THREE VERSES! I am doing a battle with Deth over the same length which is fine coz we've been planning that battle since Christmas but to have a tourney of that length for each battle, i reckon is mental.
