I was trying to find a Website where I can Test My Skills, & battle other M.C.'s, but I didn't want to go to a site that barely has any users, because I didn't want to have the problem of never being able to find opponents/not enough people vote or it takes too long to get enough people to vote/I had a problem on the other site I was on with those things, and also with losing battles I clearly Deserved to Win, because of peoples friends voting, Politics, etc... I was just wondering if anybody can let Me know how this site is in comparison with the things I just mentioned, and also if you know how many Total people are on here? Thanks Tom Hanks to anyone & Everyone who responds. I Appreciate it!...

Hello and Welcome,

I'm sure you'll find enough people to battle. As with everything; give and thou shall receive. If you vote on a battle you're actively contributing and people will vote for your battle.

Everywhere there are politics but when it comes to voting most people can set their differences aside and given a good vote. And we, the moderators try to make sure the voting is fair.

As in total people.... we got quite few. Don't expect 100 concurrent users online at the same time though, this is a dying art and the people who are online are master's at it.

Hope you have fun.

Only things I'd add to that is, sometimes patience is a virtue...there are people to battle but don't expect it to be ready to go in 5 minutes. There is the Cypher Games board where there are punchline orientated games if you want something faster moving.

Also, each site has it's own style and preferences when it comes to battling...stick around long enough and you can shape and influence that if you're good enough.

Turtles are pussies.

Welcome. Since you've been on text websites before, you already know there's a steep learning curve. Applying feedback and giving it are the best things you can do. Endeavor said most people here are masters. That may sound like a negative thing from a competition standpoint, but you'll actually find your abilities are better than they would be. Also, this sounds like total bullshit, but I've learned more about battling reading and giving feedback than I have actually writing my punches. If you break down a verse further than "that's dope" and "that's lame," you notice what phrases are more aggressive, how the concept is introduced, etc.

You can't battle until you've got 20 points, but Cuba mentioned the Cypher Games. The scheme cypher and punchline brawl can help you work on your concepts, while the multi cypher can help you with flow and multis. I'll go a couple rounds with you in the punchline brawl if you want, sort of like a de facto battle.

You'll get twenty points in no time. It sounds like a lot, but if you average five (productive) posts a day, you'll be on your way to battling by Thursday.

Good luck! I suggest you look at the Bloodlines Battle Royale and the Tag Battle Royale to get a feel for the kind of punches that work on here. Our tournament archives also provide a good example. Read anything with The Law, Rutter Knows Best, and Concrete. They are the best active heads imo.

Time travel back 10 years and you'll find ample battling opportunities.

Hey man, we're working hard to put on battles for people who want to battle and are scared of the call outs section...getting votes on the other hand, that might be an issue!!

Hell, four years ago the battling forum was four pages long. The battles closed in three weeks, which makes it roughly the same rate. Young kiddies aren't signing up for websites like these anymore.

As a matter of fact we still do get a steady traffic of new members signing up. For instance, we've had 15 new accounts register in August. In July we had 21 people signup.

Pretty much all of these accounts don't do any posting. Whether or not these are genuine accounts, who's to say, but we do get a lot of new accounts created on the site. We just don't convert them to actual users.

This is an interesting data point. Are they bummed because they have to get twenty points before they can battle? Do they think that we're all whack? Does Shawn want to see how many accounts he can make before we catch him? Fuck knows.
