How did KOTD go from their biggest battle to Grind Time 2.0?

This conversation seems to have taken an interesting detour. Clearly, OPs original point was that KOTD was (Nelson from the Simpsons voice) haha going to collapse like Grindtime. I agree with @Cabbagetown as clearly the numbers don't reflect this. You can find graphs of 'engagement' and 'views' and honestly KOTD's haven't changed all that much except for the spike with the Diz release.

As for the #2 league argument that is a bit less clear. RBE is having a huge event, but history has showed that risking the house on one big event hasn't always turned out well...

Agree 1000%, the only caveat being that a lot of the past big events that were the beginning middle and end of a league (i.e. total slaughter, botb uk, filmon, etc...) didn't have a fan base yet. RBE has 4yrs of events and classic battles and their average views are consistently above 100K).

So while I'm still confused as to how this event can make money, presumably the decision to spend is based in some semblance of reality.

If it's a 3rd party investment (as Drake was for that one Blackout) it'll be interesting to see if they get a 2nd round of funding following the event.

-If they do, it would be hard to deny RBE in the 2nd spot for leagues.
-If the next event is headlined by Show Off battling Arp, it's safe to say things didn't pan out.

I'd say RBE's the #3 league at this point, and I'd put them at #2 if they can maintain their momentum after Rare Breeds. I'm surprised though that they don't have a million view battle yet (although it looks like Arsonal/QB will have that honor, since it's at 905K views right now).

So, elephant in the room. According to many here, KOTD have lost what makes them special and are at an all time nadir, and should get back to what first drew people in right? But like, KOTD is significantly more popular than it was then. This doom and gloom about them comes up every couple of months.

The truth is, Toronto is no worse than it has been for almost its entire history, but California carried KOTD. Cali went away, and what you see is what KOTD is now
