October Update


Despite a noticeable lull in activity in recent weeks, we continue to run an array of activities that the members can get involved in. With the mod team a little light on the ground in recent weeks for a variety of reasons, we need you guys to continue posting to keep the place buzzing. A little activity from everyone can go a long way.


Expanded Mod team

Due to his both solid and diligent work on the 1-2 Punch League Rutter has been promoted to Moderator...turns out the guy really does know best.


Audio Mic/Open Mic Games


With Crewsades, Topical Twist, 1-2 punch league and the drop in activity in recent weeks we've extended out the current Word Drop until the middle of October and will do so with the current King of the Open Mic if people want to submit entries.


Word Drop #6

Current Open Mic King

Props to Endeavor, Droidan, and Neek for running these. 


Crewsades


The first Crewsades battle between Empire & Syndicate is going down to the wire. Trizzy scored a KO win against Zinaii but Concrete replied with a shut out against Beans to retain the LA text title. The final battle of the set is up between Rutter & Jay and Ashley Kaos & Goryo. If you vote one battle this weekend, make sure it's this one. Link below.

Crewsades Chat & Discussion


1-2 Punch League


Rutter's 1-2 league continues to go from strength to strength, with RKB knocking it out of the park consistently on the Mag front. It's 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.

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. There is still time to get involved, so check out the sign up sheet below if you're interested.

What's Next? 


After some of the above events, eg. Topical Twist, Crewsades, begin coming to a close. There is talks of another Battle Royale and possibly another cash prize tournament either Clash 4 Cash or Identity Crisis II. There will be a thread when the time comes of which cash tournament everyone wants. Based on the majority of what you guys want is what we will have. If there is any ideas or something you think you can run, feel free to use our comments and suggestions section. 


Spotlight Section


We launched the Spotlight section last moment, the idea being there would be 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. 


Spotlight Section


Slow down in activity


We've noticed a recent slow down in activity. If there's any specific reasons for that on your personal part we'd really like to know if there is anything we can do to help encourage more activity. We're putting a lot of work in to make LA a great place to be & we really want to see a vibrant and growing community. 


We have lots of great ideas we want to implement over the coming months, but we want them to drive activity and interest & if you don't post it's hard for us to know you want to see more of these types of things.

Any comments on any of this? Any specifics or in general? I.e. do you think the update should be shorter going forward?

If it's not valuable to you guys then we'll not bother doing it going forward. No need to write a comment if you don't feel like it, just click the like button on top of original post if you want it to continue.

Appreciate the work you put in, Cuba. 
I think monthly updates like this one are good overviews on the most important "happenings". Particularly, as you pointed out, when there's been a decline in activity. I don't necessarily think that it's too lengthy, though. 
I missed the topical twist event, so I'll definitely have a thorough glance at it in a bit. I think there is less activity due to personal circumstances, or so I believe, in some cases. So hopefully it'll increase soon.

Well done Cubes
