So, what did you guys think?

I know we had some cancelations (trust me, no one was more disappointed than myself) but I tried to make up for it as best I could with some short notice battles that I thought turned out great. Overall I was very happy with how everything turned out. There is definitely a lot of room for improvement, but what I want to know is what did you think of my first event?

Most of the battles were on point, even the replacements. Pat vs Cal and Xcel vs Danny were disappointing, but that's out of your control. Overall, better than Teddy Grizzle. Lol

honestly?

*edit

well, first off, for the first time in a long time i watched the bootlegs instead of ordering the event. i dont normally do this, but somebody with kotd attempted to deceive unwitting battle rap fans by doing some really suspect shit, and riding off the wave of url's NOME5. i dont blame you, stoned, for this, but it sucks that it happened, and in my mind, what the saboteur was doing was akin to bootlegging, and i cant in good conscience give money to an organization that does things like that

the battles i saw were ok, but i heard that there were a lot of issues with the quality of the stream.

rone vs goodz was EXACTLY what i expected, and had predicted. pat vs calicoe was about what i expected too. nothing too exciting or surprising, but it was a pretty solid first event. it was better than ditd and botb7, i think. i maybe watched a total of 5 rounds from those two events combined.

i dont wanna compare it to NOME5, because that doesnt seem fair as it was your first event, BUT it was also $30, and if NOME5 wasnt so cheap and flawless, i'd say that the event would've been worth my $30 under different, less scandalous circumstances regarding the promotion of the ppv

i'd suggest less "style clash" battles in the future tho

Gonna offer an honest opinion for feedback. Definitely no hatred involved and wish you the best.

Felt like the timing of battles was a bit off. Would've preferred if it built up a bit more in terms of momentum, as I found having all the one rounders in a row, despite them being good for what they were, killing the vibe the last half of the event. Was too long as well, from my perspective. I was at home watching the PPV with a friend and we debated leaving before Pat vs Calicoe to go see an early showing of Mad Max. We didn't and I was glad I didn't, but Con vs Chilla was pretty dead during. Conceited in particular had some fire lines that got slept on because the crowd was dead (that Scrooge bar was best of the battle imo). Maybe having it earlier, considering the type of bars, would've worked better. I know Chilla headlined but even so; him being earlier would've been better.

I actually felt like you could've had more people. It didn't seem that packed. Even for a pit, without mics, you could probably have done 100 more.

Highlights for me? Bigg K vs Ill Will was really good. Con and Chilla was when I watched it again the day after. E Farrell was good. Just...the event was too long. Also, was there venue security? I've heard there wasn't and there really should be.

Hope you put more events on out there and this one wasn't too big of a loss.

I didn't get to watch it live. I really enjoyed it though. I thought the replacement battles were actually really good. I thought everyone brought their best except Goodz, tbf Rone was a little underwhelming. I've never said this before in my life but I wish Rone vs Goodz and Arsonal vs Caustic had been unlimited.

The event was long. It felt like there was a little too much time between battles.

I agree DNA not showing was kinda a boon because another battle and a longer battle would have been way too long. I think each day should have 8 battles max. Plus Dan vs K Shine was great for short notice.

Hope you do more I'll definitely be there next time.

i haven't seen anything at all from it....

but if i have your attention or whatever, if you had a buncha one rounders, next time you're booking an event, and MC so and so is like, yo i'll give ya a one rounder for that price , just respond "pffft. one rounders stink. get outta here, you. shoo shoo" and book someone else for 3

Event was dope

i dont see what there is to bitch about,
for me the cancellations/replacements improved the event A LOT

K vs Will is a certified classsic

Ars vs Caustic is a great 1 rounder

I think Rone vs Goodz was exactly what is was always gon be and it was cool,ppl mad at Goodz repeated claim of money amount and the i dont care about the battle shit but that WAS HIS ANGLE, ppl are emo-Goodz was Goodz,they booked him to do what he does

Shine vs Dan: both got off (paus),how shine was startin to kinda kill him and had a lil blank/freestylin/interaction wit Dan moment ("where was I going?" dont know""me either" haha),then the Big T part-all just plain fun

Xcel vs Danny -choke was outa ur hands but upon watching it back after the footage fixed,shit was good battle

Pat vs Cal was slightly disappointing but will live in YT infamy I have no doubt

Pass vs Clips was better than expected, a damn good battle, a definitely better Clips than the Hollow battle

Con vs Chilla is the only battle I cant watch
it def needs the cam treatment to remove 80% of the predictin, I literally listened to it on audio only just to see if it was a good battle (again,out of ur hands)
altho i do advise not putting matches after the Main main event,especially potentially controversial ones

All in all- great event

I think you put good matchups in place they just didn't turn out the way I had envisioned. Both Pat vs Cal and Chilla vs Conceited were extremely boring off first watch and had quite a few awkward moments.
As far as the replacement battles I don't even think you should have bothered. Both caustic vs Arsonal and DBD vs K shine were basically unwatchable in my eyes.
Ill Will vs Bigg K was phenomenal, one of my favorite battles of all time and I also enjoyed Pass vs Clips quite a bit.. Goodz vs Rone was decent..I didn't watch the rest, overall man not a great event but nothing you could have done. Next time less big names and more quality matchups

Sooooo....you for real paid goodz six thousand dollars for one round?

I think people are naturally curious about the large amount of money that was spent on this event given the small crowd etc.

Are you independently wealthy or you have some silent partners or something? Anyway, I hope you enjoyed the event, that's what matters. You should spend your money on things that make you happy.

To be all objective and constructive and what not, asking those business particulars (partners, amounts spent, etc) might not be info that would be best stated publicly. If not for Osborn's preference, then for the throes of users who will just regurgitate with "omg you paid out $xxx you're dumb bruh" posts. Then again, I could be wary of basement trolldom, and this is good info to know. F**k if I know.

Bought the PPV post-launch. I'm still apprehensive with a fear that a PPV will bomb in quality/reliability for me to do it live at certain price points. I'm impressed that even the last-minute battle rearrangements worked out much better than in past situations.

Overall, @st0ned, I hoped it worked out somewhere in a range that makes you want to do this again. Thanks for posting on here and asking for feedback from the fans.

It's true, but since the battler(s) put it out there then that's what makes ppl want to know if its true

There's already been a few threads about the Goodz one rounder specifically.
