Dear KOTD Staff

Can you bring back judged battles (Nonground Zero). Personally that use to be my main selling point about KOTD back when I was bouncing back and forth between this and SMACK. Battling for fun is cool but gets pointless and lame real fast if no one I care for is performing.

I think judged battles aren't come back any time soon. Instead, KOTD should make people battle for money regularly at events. If they brought back 'put your money where your mouth is' it would be great.

why?

so instead of arguing about which battler won, we can argue about whether or not the judges were right?

most of the judges back when battles were judged were fucking idiots tbh,and i think thts what put people off having judged battles.

if you had guys that were sober and respected then i think judged battles would work,i think performances would improve too iah

yeah but let's think of a scenario for a second:

you're The Saurus at BO6.
all the battles are judged.
organik approaches you asking if you'll judge the 2nd last battle of the day.
that battle is in like 7-8 hours if we're on RNT
lexx luthor is battling in the interim
and you gotta endure all this sober


what would you do?

i miss judged battles too
the debates that would happen after video dropped of the judges explaining their decision created a lot of momentum after the fact imo which sort of extended the lifespan of the battle after its release date

i wouldn't rely on leaving it til the last minute to secure a judge,i get where you're foming from but tht scenario is the problem,it needs to be organised if its gonna work.

doing it on the fly results in shitty judgements bcoz the judges dnt care

The whole Back to Basics series has been the most interesting thing to me in battling for a while, but to truly take it back to the old days, kinda needs the judging surely.

Can they do the voting system they had for B2B3? Just have a two day event and day 1 judged while day 2 isn't.

I agree 100% with homie who started the thread. KOTD time to reintroduce judged battles. Word to the wise controversy is good for business.

YESS Exactly. I've been saying this the whole time. Battles for Money are the only way to go. these guys all want to get paid but are too chicken to risk anything.

This is the most valid argument against judged battles I've ever heard.

@AVOCADO what are you whating? Money battles are still judged. And I do think it builds more interests in battlers when people are going back and forth because it has more of a point when there's a win or a loss. If that's not cohesive enough for you than I don't know what the fuck I'm supposed to clarify.

At least with wins and losses the shit would matter, not having an actual winner is Bullshit (But we all have opinions on who won/loss) fuck your opinions, make it official. Make this all mean something.

This industry is exactly about what the fans think and their opinions, nothing more really.
