Welcome to BotB's Lyceum, a wiki-esque situation where BotBrs are attempting to help each other learn.
Battles are the mainstay of the BotB community. BotB has a plethora of battle types and formats.
Bits are the rules or files that make a battle unique. Bitpacks, containing all bits for a battle, are made available when the battle's entry period begins.
BotB users are referred to as BotBrs. When a new account is created that BotBr is given the default BotBr class of n00b. After earning 25 points the BotBr will level up to a different class level 1. BotBrs also earn boons, the BotB currency, as they inspire BotB activity.
BotB has a few ways of communicating activity. The home page is the most obvious. There are also two twitter feeds : @battleofthebits and @botb_battles the latter being a streamlined version of the former. BotBrs can receive mentions if they tell BotB their twatter name in their settings.
BotBrs and non-BotBrs alike may talk up thing such as OHBs and relationship advice in our FREE* IRC CHANNEL! We've even included BotB the IRC bot just for kicks at no extra charge!
*ISP/cellular telephone/telepathy subscription fees may apply.
The BotB Lyceum ontological Glossary is a quick reference help.
