And welcome to the brand new competition which I call Creature vs Creature 2.0.
This is a tournament style competition, single elimination rules.
There are 34 participants and four divisions.
The seeds will be based on medals, comments (received and given), articles, reads, tags and seniority.
However, before I get to that, I am going to lay down some ground rules. So, look at every slide of the article, read the rules and then we'll get to who you'll face and the topic you'll be given. Not to mention, you'll see your seed and division. Make sure to play close attention to the division you're in. As it will tell you what day to post.
The competition will start next Monday, good luck to everyone.
Here are the participants:
- Joe Burgett
- Kevin Stonebarger
- Charlie Groenewegon
- Muzzy Daud
- Roxas Tillster
- Alex Baker
- Will J Baker
- Ben Gartland
- Nate Scaccia
- Tim Nguyen
- Hamster Fan
- Dan Power
- Ryan Frye
- Ian Malone
- Tyson Jones
- Jon Sainz
- Daniel Massey

- Jeff Awesome
- David Conrad
- Sam Masad
- Bryan Flory
- Jamal Parker
- Tom Clark
- John Nicolaides

OK, the voting is pretty simple. I have altered it some, so that it can be made far more clear for everyone involved.
You will NOT be able to vote on your specific matchup. So, say I take on Rize for instance. I cannot vote for me or him, nor can he. But we each could vote on all of the other matchups. See what I mean?
Every Friday, I will post an article with all of the participants and who they faced off against.
You'll vote for every matchup.
You'll have until Sunday at 12 a.m. Central American time to vote.
Every article, I'll probably make into a slide show.
It'll have every matchup, so you'll know which one is which.
I'll ask that you send excerpts of the best part of your article to me every Friday, so I can post it with the article. This way, people will get an idea or remember who they liked best and who they want to vote for.
It'll also make sure that if they didn't see it, they'll look just to make sure they pick the right person
Every article, at the beginning of it. You will write the division you are in and who you are facing. This as well as your topic. I know it's already at the top in the title, but do it anyway. This is for a reason.
Here is an example.
Joe Burgett vs Rize
Best WWE Announcer ever
Pretty simple right?
Also, because divisions will post on the same day, you also need to post a link to your competition's article at the end of your article.
So, I'd say something like
"Look at Rize's competition piece here"
But of course, you'd link to the article itself and not the profile page of your competition.
Also, in the title. You'll need to post this:
CvC 2.0:(Title of the article)
You need to make sure to do this so we can know it's a competition article. Without this, you'll automatically won't have this article counted and forfeit your match up. I don't want that, so be sure you put that in the title.
New Rule #1:
"No hitting below the belt"
Many times in these types of competitions, we see this happening a lot. But what is it you ask?
Hitting below the belt in this competition is basically just writing an article after your opponent does and talking about everything in the article that you disagree with.
Sort of like this:
"Rize thinks Lilian Garcia is the best WWE Announcer ever. And he thinks she's hot and is an overall great announcer. She is obviously not any of these things. She's barely good enough to be in WWE, and they only kept her because she was the only announcer who could sing and somewhat announce a name." Then you finally get to your point.
I don't care to know what they wrote about. You should only convince me of your pick, and not down theirs. So, I'd do this:
"To me, Howard Finkel is the best overall WWE Announcer of all time. He was there for every Wrestlemania since day one, and even before that he as a WWE fixture. He is a Hall of Famer, and rightfully so. Howard Finkel is a legend in the WWE just as much as the Rock and Stone Cold."
See what I mean? Talk about your pick only. Do not hit below the belt. If you do, I'll eliminate you and push on the other guy/girl.
Very simple rule to follow people.
New Rule #2:
"Don't kill the fish!"
Now what does this one mean is what many are wondering.
Some people write way too much in an article, over 5000 words I've seen. This makes most people bored and can really kill any buzz you have going in. So, keep all articles around 2000 to 3000 words or under, this isn't too hard, believe me. You can use a ton of different software to count the words you use. Like Microsoft Word, Word Processor, Notebook, etc.
New Rule #3:
This is a Tournament where you'll get one shot to prove yourself each week. You'll be writing only one article per week. It'll go by Rounds in each week. This is the first tournament to ever have a once a week match up in the history of B/R.
New Rule #4:
This competition is a tournament, so obviously there is a need for seeds. Since we have 34 people, there will be an odd number of people per division. But there are 4 divisions meaning four #1 seeds. Now, some may be upset about their ranking. But all you have to do is prove how good you are and you're good. Seeding will however, be key in the competition.
By the way, this isn't a rule, but it's something to know. I will not be picking any of my topics or seeding. That is done by Jacob Waring, and if he and I were to face off, a third party would pick for us

A surprise to the competition. Like many tournaments there are play in games.
Some will def want in, but if the competition is closed for participants, how can they come in, right?
Well, a special exception will be made.
For those who want to come on, you may be able to.
We will have up to 4 play in games. Meaning 8 people can be involved in the play ins.
These play ins will be done on Friday and Saturday of this week. I'll PM you what the topic will be, and you won't know who your opponent is until the day of.
The 4 people who get in will be put into a division to bulk it up.
So, if you're interested, you can PM me or leave a comment below telling me you want in.
If you aren't sure about the rules, let me know and I will explain them in more detail.
