Chess vs. Rad B Cancelled For High Stakes II


Apparently, the battle has been "compromised," which sounds like URL blocked it.

I would rather that they just keep it to 4 battles in total, unless the replacement is something really really good. I'm pretty sure the first High Stakes card only had four battles in total as well. We just need the crowd to be amped for the good battles.

At the first High Stakes, there were 4 main battles and 1 undercard battle. Serius' match will be announced soon.

What do battlers get out of exclusivity contracts? Just to digress. You think it's like a minimum number of booked battles a year or a bump up in your performance fee, etc? There'd better be something that explicitly says shit like that in writing cause when I first heard of it I thought "What if they sign and retain you and then just never make you any matchups?"

It looks like it's working for T Top, but, he's newer than dudes like Ice, Ars, and Hitman who've turned it down. I guess it's that "Who established who" argument.

Or are there no real contracts and it's just the league making people look like scabs if they battle elsewhere?

As far as what I've seen from the specific URL talent contract, not really.

I'm assuming there's no real contracts that state this, in this scenario at least...otherwise how does something like this get set up in the first place? Sounds like Beasley probably just called up Chess and strong armed him into not doing it...

Maybe in some cases there's exclusivity clauses though.

From what I gather, URL talent contracts do have some sort of exclusivity to them. Like, Chess has been able to battle on WGH, since WGH is technically his home league (there's a clause allowing that), but due to the main terms of the contract, Nitty can't battle on KOTD.

Lucky for Rad B. He and his 2007 bars were going to die a horrible death vs. Chess.

Maybe nothing. If URL decides not to to book the battler, the battler takes a risk of losing status/views/popularity, especially if their style doesnt really fit with DF / KOTD. Examples would be guys like Showoff, Danny Myers, Xcel
