The Senior Mod team provide a regular update to the membership about current going's on & plans for the future. This month, Cuba gives the rundown of what's going on:

Staff update/Crew consultation

We are looking to evolve the way the leadership of the site works, making the crew leaders a formally recognised part of the overall site leadership & increasing their involvement in the way the site is run. 

We're eager to listen to & feed in ideas members have. This is a great opportunity for you to shape the way we do things on the site in the future, so if you haven't already please get involved in the conversation. You can find the thread here.

Battle Royale #3 - ongoing & looking for votes!

Empire's own Rutter Knows Best has ran through a bunch of his crew mates & thought he was about to square off with the reigning champ, Law, to decide the title. That was until Lord Puente came out of nowhere to play his Wild Card entry to stake his claim for the gold. RKB is currently 1-0 up, but we're looking for more votes before we move on:

Battle Royale #3

Will LP's roll of the dice be the last Wild Card entry? Crimson Juice has been voting regularly (as always!) so he could decide he wants a shot at the crown as well. 

And while we're on the battle topic, Beans is looking for a tag battle...we could potentially do a mini-tag-tourney if people were interested. Let us know.

Identity Crisis II

The most successful topical tournament in LA history is back & proving wildly popular with the masses. We're already over the threshold of a 32 man tourney, which would be the first ever 32 man tourney at LA, with some huge names old & new putting their name down to get involved. 

ICII is a topical tourney with a difference, all entrants are assigned a Battler number, nobody knows who you are except you. Plus, you can't see what the other voters have said until the battle is finished. All votes are hidden while the battles are in progress.

We're still accepting sign-ups, but anyone over the 32 threshold will have to go through preliminary rounds to get a seat in the main event.


Chat thread

And for all you returning topical heads...check out the other offerings we have, that you might've missed:

Topical Twist

The Topical Twist is a play-as-you-go style league, you get points for winning battles & if you win enough you might find yourself lucky enough to sit in the play-off places when the music stops. There's been plenty of twists along the way & I plan a whole bunch more. It's a great way of getting yourself a good quality topical battle without the long-term commitment for a tourney or full on league.

OM King / Word Drop update

Endeavour will be announcing the winner of the Jan/Feb OM King in the coming days & I'll update this with links when that's done. For anyone who doesn't know, the idea is simple, we set a topic to write to. You write a verse and post it in the Open Mic (including the [OM KING] tag) and then the best verse is crowned the winner.

On the flip side, regulars may have noticed we haven't done a Word Drop for a while. We noticed participation was down & now we've opened the question up to you guys - do you want the Word Drop to continue? And if the answer is no, would you prefer a more regular OM King? Let us know your thoughts here.

Other OM Games

As a reminder, there are other OM games that you can participate in: 

Chain Reaction II: A revised version of the first one. This where you can get or can issue challenges to other writers in the Open Mic section. 

The ILLiad: Collabo Series: A series of collective OM/stories that intertwine into a network OMs. The rules for this are in the link below. 

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.

Nice write up man.

There's quite a few things going on now which is great for everyone to be able to find something that interests them.
Regarding the word drop and king of the open mic, I personally didn't care much for the word drop and I feel as if the king of the open mic takes too long for a new one (even tho I didn't finish my last drop lol. I vote we ditch the word drop and get the kotm back to a monthly event.
