I’ve seen Loso say his money’s on Madflex, which I’m guessing means he’s in the tournament. I’ve seen guys like Pass and Bigg K hint at being in the tournament, J-Pro also said this is the biggest cash prize for a tournament.

Wonder how many spots. Seems like theyíre breaking it up geographically. Hopefully we get at least 8 in each bracket. I assume theyíll have to bend the borders a bit since some areas have more (Talented) battlers than others. I assume they want to stretch it out a bit too, if they have Canadians in this then the borders become a concern at some point with COVID, think thatís why Pat couldnít battle Shine at SMX.

I believe it’s 32 battlers, 8 from each region in the US.

This is awesome. KOTD could fill the void of the current scene.

KOTD will be on Twitch and showcase backpacker-ish rapping. The marketability is crazy. All they have to do now is... Book rappers who are good.

The potential’s there. I loved both Town Bidness events, so I’m hoping that type of matchmaking is the blueprint for the tournament.

Always disliked the regional thing as some regions are much better than others. I'm guessing north means Canada, but are there really any Canadians who can hang in that upper mid, lower top tier bracket? Illipsis?

With the borders being closed I would be surprised if Canada was included. My assumption would be North-Detroit and Midwest. East-Boston, NY. South-Atlanta, Texas. West-California.

Just book as few wannabe gangbangers as possible, and it should be fine.

My guess is that they have a special deal with Twitch and will use Twitch personnel. Haha! They are probably relieved as hell about that as it would have been a seriously difficult decision otherwise.

Like the Caffeine model

You might have heard when (during his roundtable discussion with Pass) Avo suggested that KOTD crowds were barbaric compared to the peaceful URL crowds and how he is less comfortable at KOTD events.

Perhaps Antifa is looking for a cameraman. Actually, would we need to come up with a gender neutral name for Avo? He might not be able to handle the privlidge that goes along with the masculine title cameraman. Maybe, camerazer is better.

What could be more gender neutral than an Avocado, lol? The only problem is that the vegan mob have been preaching about the environmental carbon cost of avocados, so Avocado needs to make an hour long video about how he didn't realize that when he chose his name...

I heard through the grapevine that he is rebranding himself as "SEED" As in, the seed of an avocado that has been purged of it's flesh to represent his new rebirth

Rumor has it that a Seattle-based think tank that he is consulting with suggest he make SEED stand for "Social Ethnoracial Educator & Defender"... Oh and there are whispers of his channel being rebranded as "Ruin your privilege" ...
