Everybody else: What are your criteria when judging battles? Do you value personals the most? Flow, delivery? Do you have a points system? I'm curious where everybody's votes come from.
Because of my lack of knowledge in battles, I try to stay away from voting. I don't listen to battles much, so who am I to cast a vote on battles?
However, when I do vote, I rate lyrics first. If they're relevant to their opponent and not just generic "you suck"/"you're gay" insults, then I'll probably think it's a decent verse. If both rappers got great lyrics, then that's where their delivery comes in. If they both sound engaged in the battle, then I judge their flow. Whoever has that would probably win (and if both rappers are equal in all three categories, then jeez, I wouldn't know how to vote lol)
No point system though. I just pay attention to the lyrics (or rewrite them if necessary) and judge after a few days of listening.
