now that people are finally realizing toronto sucks, what's next for KOTD?

toronto events have been unwatchable for years with only few exceptions. awful crowds, questionable booking, underwhelming performances, we all know.

i didn't buy WD7, so i skimmed recaps to catch up on the results. it seems that the two events allowed fans, bloggers, etc. to realize the gap of quality between the cali and toronto divisions. that gap doesn't seem ignorable at this point.

hypothetically, what should KOTD do about it?

i'd like to see them ditch toronto for major events and start investing more in cali. the west coast holds more talent and is creative and marketable enough for KOTD to expand their brand. the west coast also has staff/connections with people who are much better at scouting rappers. i mean, a single bunker battle pushed geechi into up-and-comer hype and got fans privy to saynt while we're struggling to remember that kinda dope line shotti p said in his second round vs whoever he faced at the last blackout.

the west coast is probably my favorite scene in battle rap, so i've been losing interest in KOTD as they continue to attempt building outside of cali. it's cool though because we still got RYD and smack (SM6 >>>>>>>).

I wouldn't mind seeing a couple more big Cali events, and I think it'd be cool to see them do an event in Detroit or Chicago or something.

Smack is for black people. The white people that watch Smack probably look like Kevin Federline.

Have they tried having one of their bigger events in Vancouver instead? Those GZ events are in Vancouver as far as I know so they could probably get the crowd in, and its still Canadian.

Or have they thought about branching out to a new area of the US? The couple DF events they did in Atlanta were pretty good, or Philly maybe

Pat, the White Guy on Smack, doesn't look like Kevin Federline. He looks like an accountant.

They shou;d definitely become California focused

Toronto should get treated how they treat Vancouver now. Events without a high budget and 1 main event out of a towner flown in

Blackout and World Dom in Cali + Mass are the 3 big events and maybe you'll get some good surprises out of Canada a few times a year.

KOTD was so unlucky getting birthed in Canada. If they had been birthed in the US, they could have avoided the necessity to even put on T-dot events.

Honestly I would make all T-dot events Canadian vs Canadian. Really nurture the very, very few Canucks that don't suck. Rotate the title matches between Cali and Canada and make some real grudge matches (the plucky Canadian up against the American come to steal the title).

I think they are too "loyal" or just plain delusional, the difference has been clear for years and they never seem to acknowledge it. I agree that they should focus on the West more. It really is a shame Avo lost The Bunker because they had a good thing going with that.

Vancouver's scene is real nice. I've had a blast every time I went there. Was at three events this year and battled at one. I think they deserve a big event. They always pack the house. 100 people every time minimum with great reaction.

kotd started going down the tubes once their target switched to becoming the top battle league in the world.. they whitewashed themselves by attempting to put on big stars who made their name in other leagues while completely ignoring the majority of their own talent.. battling was the most fun when kotd / smack / df all had competing identities.. now everyone wants to be a grimy thug.. i even liked charron better when he wasnt trying to be anything other than a gay little nerd
