I missed the creation of this. Can someone clue me in as to what the difference is between the 2 leagues?

There's a wider back story, but the idea is that over time the cream will rise to the top & get promoted. Those who struggle at the higher standards will drop down into the lower league(s). This will mean people will be in a league which gives them competitive battles with evenly matched people.

Because it's full of twists (clues in the name) I will occasionally mix it up so people aren't ALWAYS battling the same people.

Also, the idea would be if you're in the top league you'd get preferable sign in status to any tourney or Title challenges and suchlike. As you've proven yourself to be a highly competitive topical battler.

All that said, it's run on a sign in / sign out basis so that it's only people who are currently interested in topical battles. I have been running it as a 2 week drop deadline. So by time voting closes you're looking at roughly one verse a month which isn't a massive commitment.

Loving the way you are just making this shit up as you go and just rolling with it,

Appreciate it Spume...yeah, it makes it a bit more fun to run to throw the twists in to fuck with people. Otherwise it's just an admin task!!

It didn't quite work out how I originally thought it would but I saw loads of interest in OM King and Rutts sign in/sign out regular battle format working in the 1-2 punch league and kind of meshed the two things together. Seems to work a bit slicker than the "Open call out"

Ultimately the objective is to try and encourage topical battles for those who are interested in them.

Do I have to sign in every week?  Or am I automatically in until I sign out?

I don't want to sign out I want to be in next week just wasn't sure what I got to do to stay in......

here is the point system for it
 
 
and its exactly what it sounds like. depending on what division you are in (which would be the bottom of the totem pole) you get matched with someone in that division and then given a topic to write about. winner is awarded bonus points.
 
eventually you phase out of league into better one. point is after you've gone a few rounds you'll wind up in the league where the people's skill set is closer to yours, so you don't write against someone that sucks, or someone that is godlike and you suck.

Thanks LP...

Yeah the idea is it's a league that you can sign in/out of on a weekly basis. The dual league structure idea is that over time the leagues will have writers of same standard in so you consistently get even match ups.

I also do random "twists" for my enjoyment to mess with you & to mix it up so you don't always battle the same people.
