Here are the rules for competing in the Battle That! head-to-head battles.
*Keep checking back here as the information will change as it leads up to the battle.
There will be 16 spots available for people to compete, with 8 spots open for each side. The winner will receive a Vault Membership, and a custom title under their name in the forums, identifying them as a Battle That! champion. The runner-up will receive an ILL4LIFE Membership.
Every registered member in the IllMuzik forums will be able to vote. The voting for each round (4 rounds total) will last one day, with the results being posted at the end of the fourth day. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO CHEAT. There will be a lot on the line here, so anyone suspected of cheating in the votes will be disqualified. Any member who is not in the battle and is suspected of cheating with the votes, will have their votes rejected.
- You must be a member in the Forums, with no minimum amount of posts required.
- There is no theme for these battles, so you can submit any sort of Hip-Hop track(s) that you want.
- To enter, you need to fill out this form.
- You can use 1 beat for the whole competition, or you can use a different beat for each round (if you advance), it's up to you.
- IllMuzik will be hosting all of the beats.
When will I be able to upload my beats?
On November 1st, the Upload page will be open.
How many beats am I able to upload?
You will be able to upload 4 beats in total. You can only use 1 beat for each round.
What happens if I win the round?
If you win the round you can either use the same beat for the next round, or you can upload a new one.
How much time will I have to upload my beat for the next round?
*Important* The beat uploads will be open on November 1st, and will remain open until the battle is finished. Each day, members will be able to vote from 8am to 8pm ET. If you win the round, you will have between 8pm and the following morning to upload your beat. This does not mean you can upload your beat the next day at 8am! We need to have your next beat by the next morning, so be kind enough to upload it well before 8am the next day.
Can I upload all 4 beats before the battle?
Yes, and it is encouraged. By uploading all 4 beats and specifying which beat you want to use in what round, it will make things much simpler and quicker for us since we have to fix up the brackets manually.
Can I use 1 beat for the whole battle?
What style of beat can I upload?
Any style you want. Just remember that you're trying to out-do your opponent!
How long can my beat be?
Your beat must be no longer than 4 minutes.
What file format should my beat be in?
Your beat must be in MP3 format, encoded at 192kbps.
Can I have vocals in my beat?
No! This is purely a beat battle. The whole point of the battle is to out-do your opponent with your beats. You can use the occasional vocal snippet, just like in the Beat This! Competitions.
When will I know who my opponent is?
For the 1st round, you should know who your opponent is a few days after the signups close. For every other round, you will know who your opponent is at around 8pm each night.
Who will be voting in the polls?
All the members of IllMuzik.
Read these guidelines carefully and follow them. Do not try to signup in the forums under different names just so you can vote for yourself. We will be on the lookout for these kinds of sneaky tactics, so don't even try it. And please don't get your friends to signup in the forums and vote for you.
