Angry Introducing...THE NEW TEXT BATTLE ARENA RULES

From this point forward, the Text Battle Arena (TBA) mods will be setting up every battle in the TBA.



Before the battle is set up :
Go to the CHALLENGERS SECTION of Rapworlds and either call out your opponent (you can make a general call out), or reply to a call out. In that thread is where you BOTH are to agree on the rules and stipulations of the battle. After that is decided, ONE of you may PM the main TBA username with the rules, and your opponent's name. Afterwards, your battle will be set up shortly. If it is not set up as soon as you'd like it to, please be patient - we have not forgotten about you. The TBA mods have our own lives to attend to, and it does not revolve around you. If you decide to PM us again you will recieve a warning. If you decide to take the drastic measure of spamming our inbox - you will be banned from the TBA, and possibly banned from Rapworlds.

Who to PM :
Username : TextBattleArena

What rules should be discussed before PMing "TextBattleArena" to start a battle :
You must at LEAST have the basics...you may add whatever else you'd like...

- The maximum bars needed in both of your verses (bars, in text are two lines)
- Who is allowed to vote (actual people, just vets, or people who have over a certain number of posts)
- Deadline

House Rules :
if you dont want to type all the rules...just say house rules and here they are:

Deadline is 24 hours after you check in.

-No crew votes
-No dickriding votes (these can and WILL be recognised)
-No hate votes (these can and WILL be recognised)
-No recycling
-No Biting


Voting categories:
Intro-
Punches-
Personals-
Metas/Similes-
Multies-
Wordplay-
Flow-
Creativity-
Humour-
Vocab-
Outro-

Overall-


Tossing Votes:
If you want a certain vote tossed then you need good reason, here are some examples:

-Voting was clearly inaccurate (staff will decide)
-Missing MAJOR voting catorgories (punches, personals, flow, metas/similes)
-Crew, hate, or dickriding vote. (you need to provide proof)

Also..to win you must have this many votes:
3-0 Ko
4-1 Tko
or First to five votes.

After the battle is set up :
The first and second posts MUST be the two battlers assigned to that thread. This is done so the Battle System can record your wins and losses without you having to PM Mods or S- Mods. If someone posts in the thread before the the two battlers have checked in, that person will recieve a two week ban from the TBA, along with an immediate infraction.

After the verses are up :
After both battlers check in, you may drop your verse. If you decide to not show up before your deadline, and your opponent has dropped the required amount of bars, there will be an automatic Disqualification (DQ) and you will recieve a loss to your battle record.

Links :
Each member is required to provide two links to other battles they have voted on in order to keep their own battle open. If links are not posted by each battler 6 hours after the verse is posted, the battle will be closed until the links are PM'ed to "TextBattleArena", and you will also recieve an immediate infraction. Post you links WITH YOUR VERSE either on the top or at the bottom...if you make the mistake of not posting your links with the verse, the TBA mods will edit your post to include them.

Closing of Battles :
Battle threads will be closed and moved to the archive upon completion. If you thread has been closed for any any reason, a mod will make a post telling why, which then you'll need to PM A mod once the issue is resolved if it can be.

Dead Threads :
If a thread has no activity within 7 days, the thread will be closed and moved. If you have due dates, then 7 days after the due date with no activity leads to a closed thread. No more grace periods will be offered unless the circumstances deem it necessary.

Freeposting :
If there are is too much freeposting going on in the battle thread (this includes the infamous "Uppin" posts), it will be deleted - and the freeposters will be warned. If it continues you will recieve an infraction. The same rules apply for those who (meaning to or not) sway the battle. Swaying basically involves any negative opinions about the verses in the battle (i.e "Man that guy is so wack, his bars were awful! The other guy had much better multis! He's deffo going to win.") - of course if you're voting you may voice your opinion in a mature manor.

Voting on battles :
As of today these nonsense votes comes to a bitter end. From now on anyone placing votes MUST, and I repeat MUST use one of these 3 voting formats.


1.) Bar by Bar Breakdowns:

Probably the most effective voting method used. Each bar is to be broken down with a brief explanations of high and low within that particular bar. Once you've done this, another brief but logical overall explanation needs to be added at the end of your break down which will lead to your vote and also tell why.

2.) Bar Scorecards:

An easier method, but may not help elevation. You will score each bar with points. The maximum amount of points is 5. Each bar must be scored and calculated together in the end for an over all score of the verse. After the overall score has been determined by the voter, you are to give your insight on strong and weak points of the battle or a brief explanation of why you voted for that battler. An example of a score card would be:

[Bar inserted here]
Scorecard: 1/5, 2/5, 3/5 etc... If you add decimals (i.e 2.3/5) that's fine as well. Just be sure you tally the score correctly.

3.)Category Cards w/ Explanations:

This is NOT to be taken advantage of. If you're going to use this method, the categories will consist of only:

Punchlines
Multies
Wordplay
Personals
Structure
Content
Enjoyment

Overall

And you give at least semi expained reasoning as far as why you feel as though each battler won that category along with your reasoning for selecting a winner


**Warning** Any vote that does not match 1 of these three methods will be deleted and discontinued by a the TBA mods. There are NO EXCEPTIONS to the voting rules.


Battle Records:

The battle statistics will always be updated, the mods will know they need done, dont send PM's to mods wanting your battle varified. Mods arn't there to be nagged at, they will get around to it in there own time. If the battle has been finished and voting is over, and the thread hasn't been closed within 2 days, you may PM a Mod and request it to be closed and get the win/loss added to the system.

Biting :
If you're caught biting someone else's lines/bars/verses, you will be banned from the TBA, and more than likely Rapworlds.

Voting for yourself :
If you're caught voting for yourself using another alias, you will be banned from the TBA, and possibly Rapworlds.

THERE WILL BE NO EXCEPTIONS TO THESE RULES.
As Malagen says...welcome to the new BA. :mad:

Re: Introducing...THE NEW TEXT BATTLE ARENA RULES

THE HOUSE RULES ARE BEING ADDED ON TO : There will be no recycling...

If you want to be able to recycle - simply don't ask for house rules.

There will be a two week ban from the TBA for recycling...after that, a permanent ban....

Re: Introducing...THE NEW TEXT BATTLE ARENA RULES

If your opponent provides links/ecash and you do not, after a mod feels like you have had plenty of time to provide links (at the least, 2 days after both verses are posted), we will close it, and if you do not provide links after 48 hours, your opponent will get an automatic win.
