Exclamation Why don't more text battlers take part in the topical side?

Genuine question.

The AOWL popping right now with its highest league attendance for a good while, 20 competitors signed in, so this isn't some cheap attempt to recruit.

We actually have quite a few former text battlers taking part, I know Fraze, Bobby Bigelow, Ullr, Razah and Frank ALL text battled at one point in time and some still do.

My question is, why aren't more of you? In my day it was all about being rounded enough to compete over both fields of text. What is it that doesn't appeal to you guys? And I guess more so, how could we make it a more appealing concept to some of you guys?

Shorter lined verses, perhaps? Would a topical spin on the 10BBL idea be of interest to more of you, say a 16 line limit? Not necessarily for the AOWL, but perhaps an idea for a league while the AOWL season is finished with?

@Cimmerian @CopyPat @Soulstice @dull boy @Wise Wiggles @eng @oatmeal @deadman would that interest you at all?

Honestly ....it's just too much effort

I can whip a battle verse up in under an hour

A topical that I'd be happy to click submit on can and has taken me hours even days to finish

An no I don't want a 10 line topical er blah blah....I'm just sayin it's hard ...giggity

It's because they are scared of losing to me, and I don't even battle anymore.

That's how good I am.

hours i can somewhat understand, but days?

OT: 16 is cool but that's basically just the short verse tournament's final. which was a good tourney. but writing that densely places hyper-focus on the schemes (mechanics, if you want) kinda neglecting all the other creative aspects; both from writers and voters.

I don't understand what Bags is saying at all, tbh. I can drop a topical in 30 minutes; it usually takes me days to come up with a verse of battle material.

they're just completely different skillsets that happen to have some common ground in the form of rhyming words.

if you have good vocab, sense of flow/multis, imagery and story telling, topicals come easy to you.

if you have creative concepts, harsh wording, word play, and humour battles will come easy to you.

there aren't a lot of people who have both skillsets in equal amounts.
