Welcome to the Battle Rap Arena, where the posts are god tier and points mean EVERYTHING. Here you are free to post challenges, participate in battles and tournaments, and discuss important issues concerning rap battles. Do not start call out threads, or threads that let people know that you are willing to accept a battle, there is a sticky for that. If you would like to start a battle, start a thread titled YourNameVSOpponentsName, and set up the rules. Make sure your opponent "checks in" before the battle; if an opponent does not check in, a no-show will NOT be counted as a loss against their record*. Both opponents must check in, any post in the thread will be fine as a confirmation. If you are in a tournament, a thread will be started by the tournament maker, and both opponents are required to check in Most battles will follow the "skeleton" system below, although you can use whichever system you want to battle whomever you want, these universal rules apply. 1. Swaying=Disqualification. Swaying is mentioning (anywhere in anyway) the quality of your or your opponents verse in an active battle. It is fine to complain AFTER the battle. 2. Recycling=Disqualification. Using lines you have used before. 3. Biting=Disqualification. Stealing lines. Always give someone the benefit of the doubt, assume that they accidently stole a line. 4. Feeding=Disqualification on no-feeding battles. Feeding is flipping a line form your opponents verse. 2. Vote. Vote on as many battles as you can, we don't have a big league. Also explain your vote, if you can be bothered, if not it still counts if it's not a hatevote. 3. Do not shitpost in battles. Almost as bad as swaying. If you want to comment on the battle, you have to vote. The following is a skeleton guide for battles, one verse each. YOU ALSO HAVE TO MAKE A POLL with yourself and your opponent as the only options. Now every vote has to be hand-cast. Simply post "my vote goes to Example" or "V/Example" to vote. The red text is the text you fill in yourself. Eminem V.S. Jin Rules Lines - 12 Due - DEC 13 1m Recycling = DQ Biting = DQ FEEDING = DQ (Mentioning anything from your opponents verse is not allowed in this battle) Feeding = Flipping a line from your opponents verse. Don't do it. No using opponents picture without opponents permission. 1st to 4 votes wins 3-0 = KO And it's that fucking easy. When a battle is complete it will be locked and moved to the "closed battles" forum maybe I can't do that I'll figure it out. *You will have a record. It's your wins, losses, and ties.
