December Update

Feels like not much time has passed since the last update, don't know where those last few weeks have gone. Been a mixed kind of month, topical wise the site moves from strength to strength but for the regular battler scraps are a little thin on the ground.

Staff update

If you hadn't noticed Sammy is back & making a huge impact as ever. Rutter is handling business with the 1-2 punch league and generally feels like we're on tops of things as a team. 

OM King / Word Drop update

Sammy is picking up the Word Drop from expect a 500 paragraph assessment of who won the previous Word Drop & 10 fiendishly difficult words for the next round!! 

As a reminder, we've extended the OM games to run for 2 months you can still enter the previous OM King until the end of December. Since there's been so much interest in this one, we have floated doing additional 'side quests'...if you're interested in this type of thing, let us know and we can set some more challenges!

Word Drop #6

Current Open Mic King


Blood of the Belt

Blood of the Belt continues, with Kiki Spirez and Spume Corrupt facing off to determine who will be the next LA Text Champion. Let's try and make sure the votes close out on this one rapidly when the verses are up, as I'm keen to run another Battle Royale once this is done and dusted. 

1-2 Punch League

Nice to see continued interest amongst a solid contingent of battlers to keep the league moving along. The title has changed hands a few times since the last update. Can Goryo keep his hands on it until the next update?

The 1-2 punch league is a quick & simple format to get involved with, you get a battle every week and only 1 punchline is required. If you want to read the rules, sign up, or vote the current crop of battles just check out the 1-2 Punch board link below. 

All the latest content is on the LA Magazine. If you're willing & able to spare some time to support Rutter with running the league or creating the content for the mag, drop him a line or post a reply as I'm sure he'd appreciate the help.

LA Magazine

Huge props to Rutter for not only getting this off the ground, but consistently delivering great mag content as well. 

Topical Twist

In essence a mini topical league, the idea is to get people involved in topical battles who might not otherwise or just want a neutral person to set the topics. You also get all the benefits of regular competition. Get your name on sign up sheet below if you're interested.

Topical Twist - sign up sheet

It's intended to be a 'dip in, dip out' just make sure you let me know if you aren't currently looking for a topical battle, otherwise you might find yourself with an ugly looking N on your record. And nobody wants that.

There are currently battles sitting in the Battlefield which need votes, so please check them out.

Yearly awards? 

We're looking for your suggestions for categories for a set of yearly awards...we're open to any ideas you have, whether serious or less so. Check out the 'of the year' awards thread in the LA Magazine if you want to contribute.

There's also a great discussion going on around 'best open mics' started by LP, definitely worth checking out the drops being mentioned.

Spotlight Section

The Spotlight is a 'one stop shop' for all the hot topics in LA. It showcases all the biggest battles, hottest open mics, as well best discussions going on in LA.
