Ok so the last one was getting a bit large, so we're due a new one. Special thanks to Alice (Jallas) for keeping the last one active.

Want to prove someone wrong? Challenge them to a One on One!
1 on 1s are the mainstay of the S&L contests forum. They are what sort the men from the boys. You got a grudge? Take someone on in a 1vs.1! Use this thread to demand one yourself or find an opponent. Then one of you sends a piece to the other, who then sets up a public poll between the two pieces, without naming who wrote each piece. The one with the most votes for their piece when the poll closes is the winner! Have a look around the forum for examples of these going on.


1 Vs. 1 Rules

You can only have three 1vs1s a month. No more! If you go overboard, you will be deducted 3 points.
You do not have to wager points, but these 1vs.1, will not be documented. To be more clear, simply do not post the results of them into the points thread.
The maximum amount of points allowed to be wagered, per 1vs.1 match, are four. You are allowed to have up to -5 points (maximum) to be able to compete in a 1vs.1. If you have less than -5 points then you are ineligible to compete in a 1vs.1.
You don't have to have points to be in a wagered 1vs.1. For instance, Something_Vague can challenge xArCaDiAx to a 1vs.1 for 3 points. If xArCaDiAx loses, he loses three points and Something_Vague gains three points, and if xArCaDiAx wins, he gains three points and Something_Vague loses three points. Either one will be +3 or -3. Easy, right?

I should mention that if either one or two of the people that want a 1vs.1 has 0 points (i.e. they haven't competed before or have no points to wager) Then the maximum you can wager is 3 points.

Also it has been brought to my attention that many 1v1s do not match up very well, either in content or style. While this is nothing that we are going to regulate, we do ask that the writers take more time deciding which pieces to use, rather than just PMing a random piece, just discuss topics etc... This is totally voluntary I might add.

Who wants to do a poem vs poem for 1 point. Preferably I'd like to go up against a short poem, cause I'm using a pretty short one, I don't want one really long poem vs a pretty short one.

The Hurt Within
12-06-2006, 05:33 PM
I'll go, but how short we talking? Neither of my other two challengers submitted anything to me. I do have poems btw...not complex :D

stratkat

Preferably no more than 20 lines, the two I'm thinking about using are about 10 to 15 lines, but if you can't find one thats short then just pm me whatever.

Alright, Steve. I really respect you as a writer, and I remember we've had one or two onevsones before where you walked all over me. And I'd love to be walked on again by you.:p:

So if you want to do a onevsone for fun, send a piece my way. I'd like to use something a bit older because I don't write all too often anymore, so if you want to.. send something and I'll choose a suitable piece to match up against it.
