    Hmmm...16 bars are too few to clearly separate powerful lyricists from one another. And one round battles tend to produce narrowly focused, more shallow, less comprehensive lyricists. No diss to anyone here because everyone who's signed up thus far seems to have skill, but...I think more bars more rounds and an unbiased voting guideline to kill d/r hate ignorant etc etc votes is needed.

    Or if this is a speed tourney lookin to drum up Emcee Battle Arena views and activity? More bars in 1 round is needed. Up to say...40. No bar match requirement, just write until you're done...and submit the verses to the Emcee Battle Arena mod who will drop both verses at the same time. This way nobody tries to wait for somebody else to drop and then pen a verse accordingly.

    You still need a Guideline like in RWZ in order to prevent d/r, hate, ignorant, crew, etc. votes. You also need that RWZ Guideline to resolve disputes and make sure everyone's on the same page from Day One...and most importantly? The RWZ Guideline does all of the above while encouraging an appreciation of comprehensive lyricism and completely preventing cheating.

    seconded. combine it with the RWZ. This league would rock RWZ rules, 40 bars per round max, be round 1 with one verse per lyricist per battle. Verses are to be given to the mod in the Onslaught and he/she/they drop the verses simultaneously on the due date. No chance to cheat or change bars. Then Round 2 would be full RWZ firepower with RWZ rules and 2 rounds per lyricist per battle until the champ round which requires 3 rounds and 3 verses per lyricist.

    i like the RWZ voting guidelines but i think 40 barz is a lil excessive and get's hard to vote on when u read 80+ bars between two people.. this should be a fast paced league with qaulity battles.. if people wanna go 40 by all means. but imo, 24-32 seems like the standard 2 minute battle rounds.. and i think people should go 3 rounds like normal audio battles so people can rebuttal etc and work on all aspects of their battle game.. imo

    Word you know I've always advocated 3 rounds man. Aight we can do 3 rounds at 28 bars, midway between 24 and 32. Let's go...yall in? If so...so am I.

    ...

    ...aight let's not start this again. Howzabout this...3 rounds 28 bars no voting guidelines and let's get this joint started and let's stop the delays. You with that?


    Then the next round of battles will be with the RWZ Guidelines. This way everybody gets what they want and every style of lyricist can drop their style on fair grounds without biases. Cypher and RSTL heads should be able to battle shoulder to shoulder with Open Mic and Emcee Arena heads and that can only happen with RWZ Guidelines makin it fair. But that'll wait until we do this IV Text thing first.

    But we gotta go 2-3 Rounds like live battles do and let's go 28-32 bars/round. Only fair, right? You got the firepower to go that length, right TaC? You do? Coo. Let's do it then.

    And to show I'm a man of my word? With all respect I'll battle you now. 3 rounds. 28 bars. No Voting Guideline. Whassup?
