People of LA...

Before my sudden and unavoidable departure, the man himself, Mr Owen Ice Cuba C, passed me the torch of the Topical Twist League ... and since coming back to find LA's activity at an all time low, I'm gonna use that torch to light this place the fuck up!

Crazy right? When we've hardly even got the bare minimum for a single text battle!
Well that may be so ... but fuck it, what have we got to lose?

(5. That's 5 people.)

Cos I've been watching you LA, and I see you lurk.

You're sad that your favourite website is not as busy as you'd like it to be, and I feel your pain brother, truly I do ...

(2 to battle and 3 to vote, trust me it's 5.)

And I know you won't give up. You'll keep checking. And each time you'll wipe away a tear with the tissue you use for your second favourite website ... then silently log off again and wait for the situation to fix itself.

(Yes 7 if the voting goes to the wire, but I did say bare minimum)

But there is something you else you can do!
And that is virtually throw your virtual name into the virtual hat for TOPICAL TWIST 2.0

(Yes that's assuming it's best of 5 ... look just forget it, it's not important)

What was Topical Twist?

Put Simply. A way for anyone to get a random writing task whenever they fancied one without the fuckery of the Call Out thread, or having to come up with a topic.

But with points, lots and lots of lovely points!

What's different now?

Oh, you mean Topical Twist 2.0 aka the No "No-Show" Show?

Well it's quite simple - you just need to PM me or email me ...
a) your topic ideas for others (you will never be given one of your own)
b) requests for matchups whenever you want them (no signing in & out)
c) your verses when they are ready
and I will literally take care of the rest.

That sounds awesome! ... but remind me again why it is?

Cos it's completely no-show proof!!!
You send me your verse and then you forget about it.
If your opponent doesn't do the same, I'll send the topic to someone else ... so it may take a month or 3, but it'll go down eventually.

Quote "An ingenious way to sustain a league-based event during an apparent near-fatal activity drought!" - Rolling Stone.


Yadda yadda ... you said something about points?

Yes
Points for submitting a topic that gets used
Points for submitting a verse
Points for accepted votes
Points for winning
Points for other things I haven't thought of yet

OK I'm in, but can it really work?

I really don't see why not.
It's just 1 topic suggestion and 2 matchup requests, and we've made a start.
It may be slow at first, but I'm not going anywhere.
And I'm going keep giving this more bumps than my nan's final birthday party.

So LA.
It's over to you.
Let's do this.

I'm stupid. Can you summarise this again?

Is this for Topical Battles or a tourny?

Abso,

In short - yes it's Topical battles on demand

But it's a reboot of Cubas original league, which you may have missed
So I'll post a link for you


Hint: PM me a decent Topical subject now and you'll be sure to get the first Point on the board though.

Sweet.

But don't forget this is a battle on demand kinda deal, not a sign-up.
And vague yet positive posts like these will be taken to mean you are ready to go.
So on that bombshell ...

Twist Battle #2 is now also in the works.

Cracking.

Had considered this, and yeah why not.

Drop a verse in this and you'll get your points from before transferred over.

But they won't count for that much in the long run cos I'm thinking this ...

+1 Points for submitting a topic that gets used
+3 Points for submitting a verse
+1 Points for each accepted vote
+10 Points for winning

This cool?

Yeah that’s cool , we still get points for voting and showing up , but skill level gets the big points and that’s where it counts, good job so far rid, it would be dope if you ran it a little like IC2 keeping battlers nameless and hiding votes , even tho hiding the votes is prolly a pain in the neck, would be dope

That type of thing requires a special board OR the battlefield to have that applied across every battle. Both of those options require Scotty to do some magic in the background.

We had talked about implementing the latter so that could be a viable option.
