How do YOU judge battles ???

This shit is so subjective, so there isn't an obvious, or right way to judge battles.

Some people go by:

-Who had the best bars
-who rapped better
-who had the biggest haymakers
-who commanded the crowd better
-who was more memorable
-who was more entertaining
-who was more consistent
-a combo of all these things
-ect.

Also, a lot of people judge round by round. Others might have a note pad with a weird flawed pointless scoring system. And some just go for over all feel.

So again, how do you judge battles? Also, what do you think is the worst way to judge battles is?

Whoever has entertained me the most, usually includes some good rapping, bars and humour.

I dont know if its just me but i dont judge all battles the same because not every battle is the same. sometimes its round by round, or if 1 round outshines the rest of the battle thats enough imo

I hear that. I'm kinda similar. I judge differently depending on the battle.

Also I usually don't base it off of round by round. For a recent example, in the tayroc vs brizz battle I thought brizz bearly edged the last two, but thought tayroc bodied the first. So I gave it to roc. I usually just go with the overall feel.

i don't really have an objective method to judge a battle. i choose the winner by who left more of an impression. it's a very vague way of putting it because in different matches you have to serve different purposes. so i can't pick a winner simply because he was more technically able or by who i simply enjoyed more.

i still pick winners to the battles i watch, but lately i've been caring more about whether a rapper impresses me.

Battle rap used to be a face to face rapping contest between two rappers used to determine who the better rapper was.

Don't know what it is now. These days you can clearly be the better rapper and still lose according to the fans.

Yeah I judge it different for each battle, like if both guys are more or less on level with each other in terms of flow/delivery, then I'd just go for whoever had the better lines or moments. If one guy is a much better rapper (and has good bars) then there isn't much chance for the other guy to beat them, even if they have good or slightly better bars. Plus it takes away from a punchline for me if the set-up's are shit, which is why it would of taken 3 full round chokes for me to think Charoon beat B magic.

Lol that just means you're judging battles based on what someone who knows nothing about battles would think. (unless you only go out with #seasoned fans)

the only way u can judge art with this many factors

overall feel. who i liked (enjoyed) more

worst judging method: round by round
that shit is wack

people used to use rounds as a REFERENCE then somehow it became how ppl judge the battle

If you got ZERO flow imo you done lost.

Performance and energy are also very big things I look for.

I agree with special bout judging rounds on a scoring system is gay... It isn't boxing or a UFC fight, as much as it gets compared to it with judging methods..

Hard not to favor who you think won, but at this point don't really go into battles looking for a winner, would rather just have both cats show out and be on top of their game.. Battle rap is so subjective, I get cats will have their own preference of what they value more...

I do miss the battles being judged for other reasons though... Miss betting golden showers, girl swallowing 2 nuts as opposed to 1, n other random sex acts we bet on the battles... Girl isn't as into battles as much as I am, but she competitive, and has more rooted interest in the battles, when something is at stake

That's right. A rapper's potential to break out of this niche within a niche is how I judge them. Someone who can make it as an artist in rap, not just on youtube, that's the kind of performer I get excited about.

I totally understand not seeing it that way. But it's my way of thinking.

I've judge a few battles at some events. And my judging style is a combo of nit picking at different categories like delivery, performance, content, impact, etc. And I think the best way to go about it is round by round. Even if rounds don't end up being the deciding factor, it's another aspect to help you come to a decision in the end. One thing I've learned from judging battles tho, is that you can never please everybody lol.
