That's a reasonable point, @zygote.

Maybe crown two champions, one for the Writing Challenge League and another for a topical tournament seeded based on Writing Challenge League points? You could open the latter up to members who didn't compete, too.

There should just be weekly champs like all leagues do since this isn't a tournament as Zygote stated. Then there should be champs because that's how leagues usually work to encourage people to win. Somebody need to be champ so we know who to put the target on to shoot for. This way just requires minimal work to operate for the managerial side. It doesn't really aid the writers for being in here other than facing each other and seeing who's got skills.


Thanks for the credit Serpent

Your under the radar serpentine underground fracking for votes is noted. I know your type. Loud as a motor bike, but wouldn't bust an entire verse-theme in a type fight.

You think this league requires minimal work? That's ridiculous.

why is writing for anything other than a champ accomplishment so stingy? lolwtf

its not as if all verses receive healthy amounts of collective feedback and critique from other participants as well as a guaranteed comment from zygote in every week's inhumanly punctual mag....right

the league is only 8 weeks long.. AOWL was twice that.. creating a championship title out of thin air this late in the game seems a bit regressive

I assumed their would be an accomplishment/champ for this the whole while. There's one for every activity on this site.

I think dead man means weekly championships. We're more than halfway through the life of this league. It's too late for that.

The writer with the most points at the end of this league wins an accomplishment and a small moment to go to his grave with, a token of pride that can never be taken away. We should be so lucky.

But I do think using these standings to seed an otherwise-unrelated topical tournament after the league ends would be a fine idea.

That's not what I meant Serpent... IJS there's less incentives because of the things missing. That's also due to a lack of inside help from the people within the league, not just the mods. A mag can be written and managed by anyone who makes that effort. I'm just talking tho... this is my first week in here, i don't know wassup until i can see wassup... just waiting to see a little more thats all

the person that finishes with the most points will be the champion and will be given an accomplishment

while it is most likely true that a competitor starting in this league last week or after has a very slim chance of champing the league, I feel like the WCL still has a lot to offer those people.

first of all, this is an opportunity to topical battle basically all the best writers that are still doing this on the net. week in and week out you will be against the very best opponents that their is to offer, anywhere.

any wins you get are not irrelevant. even if you cannot garner enough points to champ, you are earning bragging rights and on top of that your wins will be added to your win-loss record on this site, which is displayed underneath your username. if you were to battle in the battle arena you would be facing most likely lesser competition and receive fewer votes. votes, that's another thing, voting in this league is for the most part very good. so you get more feedback for your verses than you would by dropping an OM piece.

so you get more votes, better feedback, better competition than you could find anywhere else imo. also we do all the work, we set you up with an opponent and topic. if that's not enough, well than this is not the league for you.

remember this is not the sites topical league. that is the AWOL. this is the league that is taking place in between seasons of the AWOL and is intentionally different in many ways. the core philosophy is challenging yourself as a writer by writing to the sometimes difficult stipulations in each battle.

enjoy

so bragging rights and a record tally... that's it for ppl like me that have only had one match. just don't think this was a good system to encourage more competitive writers. somebody could do a mag out something. that would at least make it more entertaining. Points sick. wind and losses is how battle should work.

I know the league is different. you have harder challenges and less reward.

If you don't like it leave tbh.

There's other writing tourneys/leagues coming through. This has been one of the best ran parts of the site since the jump.

isn't this for free chat? so why am I being condemned fur doing so? anyone can leave, anyone can also speak and that obvious in everyone that talks shit all day. I'm not talking shit, just exposing that things are short here. if that's a crime, I'm no where near the only criminal do don't try to throw me instead the bus. I'm no mechanic

If you dislike the tourney and have the free option to leave and instead you just bitch about it, I get annoyed. That's all.

I know that man.. that obviously hires without saying so why even say it. everyone takes critics on their verse, but critiquing the league isn't okay I guess. ok, I'll stfu then. deuces

one last thing, because, this didn't start with me critiquing, but more wondering if there was gonna be more. so if a mag is formed/ established/organized however it's done, I will offer to write mag articles. that's really what I wanted to say in the first place. like a top 5 - 10 verses of the week, top 5 matches, shit I'll even interview the person with the most points. leagues gain strength from members help. I actually said that already too.

I think there have been two Great ideas in this debate

1. Pie helping on a mag with whatever he would like to do, because this would only make good better in my opinion

and

2. Having a tourney with these rankings; separately if need be.

Both puts for a boost of morale plus incentive for "the end game".

Great if you want to write those sections PiE then thanks, email it prior to Sunday and they will be uploaded along with the reviews. Next week review will contain some extra content anyway (top 5 positioned + 3 reader favorites). Also, part of it will be reasoning/justification for why there is no elimination style tournament section. Although, Adonis comment of "separate if need be" - if anyone wants to do this then go ahead, I can't assist with it but any can use the general principles to make a new style of tournament.
