So it's been nearly 3 months since UW high stakes...

...And nothin happened?

Seriously, what are they planning on doing with these battles, or if I'm just undereducated on the matter, what have they done besides the ppv?

I'm aware there are bootlegs of every battle all over the interwebs, but still no official YouTube releases of even any undercard battles. UW has always been known for getting footage out quickly, and they have prided themselves on it as a matter of fact.

Seems like it's too late to try and sell the battles to anyone on iTunes or youtube or something of that nature. Maybe if they did it 10 weeks ago or something it could have generated cash flow

So, like, what the fuck, u know?

Shit is really weird. UW going to kill its own buzz before it even gets the chance to build off it.

Its not just that they've not released the battles, it's that there's been no word from them about anything, really.

For reference, in the same time period, KOTD have had a successful FC event, at least one Canadian event, and are prepping for BOLA coming up soon. I'm not saying UW should have had an event, but they're really not capitalising on such a massive day for them.

IMO they should have released Daylyt vs Magic by now, and if Hollow/Lux is going to be monetized, it should have been by now. People just aren't going to buy the PPV at this point.

All battles are on youtube.
This is a stupid move on their part.

All great battles that deserve a million views.
But after the delay, & the ammount of times they've been viewed probably not.

I guess they're trying to make sure they get every bit of revenue possible on the PPV. Total speculation, but it seems like the event might not have been able to make the returns they expected.

I think hollow said something about not getting paid the full amount he was promised, though that could be for entirely different reasons.

I think at this point, the people who wanted to see these battles have. It would be awesome if they went on Youtube for prosperity, but I don't think they will.

UW dropped the ball with high stakes.. it had all the hype in the world.. then.. nothing really happen.. did lux vs hollow dropped? i only seen the bootlegs. KOTD is on top of the food chain in battle leagues.

They haven't dropped it yet because there's some disagreements about who's getting what bread.

i've been thinking about this for a while, myself. what i think happened is they mishandled their funds so now they're staying in the shadows.

from not seeing any (legitimate) youtube battles to hearing about Hollow not getting paid the 2nd half of what he's owed - it seems like something strange is going on.

Still haven't watched the bootlegs, I'm waiting. I respect UW's right to monetized money, since boots get them no cash flow.

Also the PPV recordings trash in the bootleg.

@Ill Magic Monetized money eh?

This is pure speculation, but based on what hollow is saying, how those guys changed their phone numbers and haven't paid him, perhaps the league owners and the people who sponsored the event are arguing about what to do with the footage.

Edit: @dog good info

Maybe Hollow was right when he said the video wouldn't be released pre-battle.

Hollow & Lux should sue Da Rebel (even tho da rebels following me on twitter) they should sue and get they cut, or Harlem hospital will be giving beds out to rebels and guys with glass eyes.

On the day of high stakes, Arsonal said that if fans got the event trending, that a battle would be released in 48 hours. It has been three months.

I'm trying to get as many people as possible to call him out on this... please tweet him @ARSONALDAREBEL and let him know how you feel...

I'm sure it's way out of da rebel's hands at this point. He would have made good on releasing the footage.

It's on whoever wrote the checks now.
