You've already mentioned telling Pat to stfu (apparently) like 20 times in the past 14 hours, so why are you all of a sudden saying 'a popular kotd battler' instead?
we get it.

everyone knows i support KOTD alot on this forum
Bias so bad they boo'd DIZ before he even spit his 1st round ,, not close to as bad as URL - SM2 but kinda close ...
DIZ couldn't even get through his 2nd and had to freestyle about the boo'ing but it got so bad he just said fuck it ,, he came back in the 3rd in took that round though , def took 1dst
i almost feel like KOTD FC should just keep there battler there and expand in the states or Lush should completely start his own league
yeah the crowd sucked. but so did diz. his third round was good, and guess what? no boos.
he got boo'd in the intro because he did a piss poor job of establishing any sort of context and just started rambling off some fb messages. ain't no one want to hear that shit. it's a fucking rap battle, talk about it by rapping. if you can't set the angle up properly using raps then don't use it.
i mean, the way he started that whole intro it didn't even sound like he was getting at arcane. he opened it with some shit about KOTD not having all the money at the finals, and then followed that up with how arcane doesn't represent KOTD and can't be held accountable for the border shit. you're in a crowd of restless people, half of which don't even follow battles, and you're opening with an intro that only makes sense to people that lurk rapmusic 5 hours a day (ie. me and 20 other people there). for someone who's so good at reading a crowd that's a pretty bad job reading the crowd.
then despite this, he actually got cheers and laughs for a bit of his first round. then he started rambling on spitting progressively worse schemes that amounted to the exact same message. still, no one booed. he finished his first and people probably assumed that he got his point across (cause really, he did) and that his second would be different.
he got boo'd in the second because after spitting a whole first round of biting jokes (not limited to such classics as 'eh yo i bet if you were in a war you'd try and borrow so and so's gun cause you ran out of ammunition') he continued to do that.
when he started getting boo'd even drake (dizasters biggest fan) and bulletz (arcanes biggest hater) were standing there with a 'what the fuck is this shit' look on their faces. then he started crying like a little girl acting like it's impossible for a crowd not to like him because he's diz.
he had plenty of decent schemes in the third, could have just sprinkled those in throughout the shitty ones to mask the fact that he didn't try for the battle and he probably would have won.
so let's be real, arcane didn't 'plant' people in the crowd. the crowd gave diz plenty of opportunity. his shit just sucked. not saying booing is the right answer, but let's not pretend there's some conspiracy going on just because dizaster had a terrible performance and completely misjudged the crowds mood/knowledge of battling. he either expected people to just know the situation (which is stupid, like i said, unless you lurk rapmusic you wouldn't know what he was talking about because he established no context before rambling on) or he misjudged his ability to actually tell a story that was the least bit cohesive.
