  1. Usage matters, it just shouldn't be the only metric by which something is judged. Saying usage doesn't matter is done only to swiftly shut some idiot up who wants something like Landorus-Therian banned solely on the basis of their usage because of how splashable it is. Something like a powerful sweeper such as Lucario should not be as splashable as it is in UU.

  5. I know this is some snarky sarcasm but pretty much everything was said already before Lucario was unbanned and now you have a 36,75% usage Pokemon with almost 57% winrate, which is unheard of for a Pokemon that highly used. Not saying you should do any actions within a few days (might as well wait a few of weeks, so you can at least claim it had a reasonable test period) - but at this point the people have already talked and the numbers are doing the talking instead.

  6. Explanation A scavenger hunt is a PvE event where players will be challenged with catching 6 specific Pokémon as fast as possible. The target Pokémon may require specific properties, such as specific natures, IVs, or characteristics (eg "Likes to thrash about"), or they may simply be rare encounters. Players win prizes according to the order of their submissions of ALL target pokemon; that is, the first player to submit all 6 targets wins first prize, the second player to do so wins second prize, and so on.

  9. Many of the players managed to win the UU seasonal tours using Lucario as their win-con - in the semifinals last night for the west tourney Quinn was in a 1v5 position and if Lucario wasn't burnt by scald, would've late swept and won the game. 1. You should see the number of players who used Lucario in the tourney and successfully won due to its huge influence 2. You should see how it's the highest used Pokemon in the ladder with its high win % Someone pointed out that Timid is the highest used, people recognise that the physical set (Jolly / Adamant) is more dominant in the tier, the reason why Timid is the highest used is because most had that set for OU, and needed to breed / buy themselves a physical one - looking at the statistics and spectating tours most are now using the SD set. To be honest if the thread is dead it's probably because people know that TC aren't going to ban it anytime soon. However I did spot 2 vacant positions so it'd be interesting who ends up getting those spots. I'll reply back here in 1-2 weeks with more insights when hopefully everyone realises how broken or game changing Lucario is... P.S. I love Lucario as it puts huge pressure on stall, but I can see how broken and game changing this can be.

    [UU Suspect Test] Lucario

    It was absolutely sarcasm dw, yes I do believe usage matters, probably more than most people You were just the unfortunate soul to mention it at a time after months if not years of being told to take usage elsewhere because it doesnt matter to the conversation, when it does. Maybe not to a particular point but in the overall discussion. Yes it holds a lot of value right now, but that could change, its very early. 36% usage rate isn't out of this world, and 57% win rate is 4% less than it was 2 days ago, give it some time to stabilize even though I am all for hearing early opinions on the mon itself. Reversing a Prior Ban If a metagame has changed significantly to consider reversing a previous ban, the tier council will discuss and vote upon reversing the ban. If a ban is reversed, then a suspect test will be initiated, whereas the Pokemon being questioned will be reintroduced to the tier it was previously banned from. No other bans may be reversed during a suspect test, nor any bans be made (unless needed to be done emergently, if this occurs the suspect test will likely need to be extended). Changes can still occur based on usage. After at least one month of discussion, and when the tier council feels comfortable moving on to a vote, a decision will be made with a majority ruling. When the decision is made, the tier council will post in the thread and notify the community of the decision. The post will provide the reasons behind reversing the ban or not. Directly from the updated policy.

  21. Okay, I can't tell if this is some snarky sarcasm again - but for the love of god can the Tier Council make one serious post in these discussion threads so we can even have an actual discussion with you? But in case there is an ounce of seriousness, do you believe yourself for a second that usage in tiering is irrelevant? When people are discrediting "usage" it is only done for the purpose of not having someone basing their entire argument on usage without analyzing why the usage is so high. For some Pokemon, the usage is high because they are used to counter another significant threat in the metagame so their usage is not the product of them being so strong but something else being so strong and that Pokemon is the only available counter to it. No one is forced to use Lucario, everyone just wants to because it's so much value for one Pokemon in UU environment. You could even try to make the argument that Lucario is partly used due to Porygon2 and you could have some theoretical merit to that argument. But you don't even try. You just say usage is irrelevant. Why are we even having these discussions?

  23. I mean c'mon man I'm not going to suddenly want to play doubles cause I already have all the previous OU hats. Sure you could argue no one has the time to hunt for all the hats in one season and you would be right but they could have just shuffled them around i.e UU gets the Aura hat while OU gets the Yawn hood etcs.

  24. I don't really care about how the devs decide to give the hats, but the only thing it is doing so far is making it so people leave the tier after they get all the hats lol

  28. I believe it's to encourage players to try out new tiers and collect all the hats, alongside newer players getting the hats they would have missed when they first came out.

  34. Very early days, but this is how Lucario is faring in UU right now - also to mention that the winner of the UU tournament hosted by Mkns included a Lucario which managed to late sweep the game. It'll be interesting to see how much influence it has in the UU seasonal tours... One to also mention that Lucario itself may not be a problem for TC, but when it combines with pressure from P-Z (also with a high win rate and usage), that's when things get spicy. Again, it's very early days but it'll be interesting to see how things pan a few weeks from now.

  37. We actually do know which decisions should not be made. Because, well, we play the game. Not like most of you, who used to play the game. TC is quite active? All due respect JJ, last time I saw Zeb being actually active was like 4-5 years ago. Blueboi despite being a good friend of mine doesn't play either, same for Tyrone who isn't doing any comp. While I don't blame them as my own activity is on a decline due to unreasonable decisions, lack of interesting updates and general situation of the game, TC just has to consist of people who know what they are dealing with and they don't just theorymon. I don't have much insight about yourself as I don't have you on friendlist but I do see you in tours or MM (and as a side note, I hugely appreciate the fact that you actually communicate with us), Stelian, Pachi, MK and Lunarck are active, logging in daily, usually go quite far in tours and know what they are doing, so this makes 5/8 TC members who actually are actively logging in if I count yourself. I like the activity requirement, however I feel that this will quickly turn TC upside down- not like this will change much though. About the slow tier changes- honestly, it's not the slow changes that are irritating us the most, but the decisions themselves and the fact that they are being made by people who do not even play the game. We were very vocal when it came to Lucario dropping to UU and if you would read the discussion, you'd see that majority of players (and we are talking about players who actually play the game a lot, not 400 elo novice trainers) was absolutely against this move, myself include, yet you as TC decide to drop Lucario to UU, despite our strong voice of disagreement. Slow changes are another thing but not the one that is most irritating. The only suspect test thread we received was for PZ in March (!!) and even then, TC didn't participate in discussion aside from you and Pachi. We didn't get a suspect test for Dugtrio which was being discussed very actively, Pory2 which appears problematic as well isn't being discussed either. It seems like whatever we do or say is completely irrelevant and you don't care at all about what people who play more and are more experienced have to say and do the same thing devs do- unreasonable decisions which drive us away from playing this game competitively. Also randbats ftw.

  41. The number of tours on MMO are great (1-2 per day at different timezones), and that is something I would personally like to keep happening. However what I've noticed is that the quality of these tournaments regarding prizes have decreased and I believe needs some kind of change. Suggestion: As I accept that the developers are sensitive about including too many shiny prizes, I would like to propose increasing the RP prizes in non-shiny tours to the following: 1st place - 1,500 RP (currently 1,000 RP) 2nd place - 750 RP (currently 500 RP) 3rd place - 500 RP (currently 250 RP) Justification: There has been a significant decrease in the number of tournaments with shiny prizes, especially in tiers such as UU. Below are the difference in tournaments which have non-shiny prizes compared to shiny prizes (excluding Community Combats). All of the tournaments are from the beginning of August until the end of this week (as who has time to go further): August 2021 Doubles: 1 August - Porygon2 7 August - Shiny Hariyama 21 August - Shiny Torkoal 27 August - Larvitar OU: 8 August - Shiny Gengar 11 August - Cloyster 14 August - Shiny Staryu 22 August - Shiny Jellicent 28 August - Chansey 29 August - Shiny Cofagrigus 31 August - Rotom UU: 4 August - Bisharp 5 August - Swampert 13 August - Bronzong 20 August - Vaporeon 25 August - Shiny Sandile 26 August - Porygon2 30 August - Shiny Azumarill NU: 3 August - Manectric 6 August - Shiny Lilligant 11 August - Shiny Diglett 13 August - Absol 17 August - Shiny Murkrow 23 August - Shiny Emolga September 2021 Doubles: 4 September - Shiny Snover 7 September - Scizor 14 September - Kingdra OU: 5 September - Shiny Drilbur 10 September - Skarmory 12 September - Shiny Solosis UU: 1 September - Umbreon 9 September - Shiny Gigalith 15 September - Mismagius 16 September - Metagross NU: 3 September - Typhlosion 6 September - Shiny Nidoqueen 11 September - Zoroark 13 September - Clefable From the tournaments I've listed, UU is the tier which is lacking in the most shiny prizes. With these type of tournaments, people would rather enjoy the aesthetics of a shiny than a 'perfect non-shiny' prize, and this shows based on the brackets. I believe the increase in RP prize should also happen for the following reasons: Bearminator has confirmed that discussions will occur to increase the Team Tournament prizes from 1,000 RP in 2022 Players can grind an average of 300-500k a day or more depending on their time and methods (e.g. Gym runs, farming berries, etc) so this increase shouldn't affect the economy is a negative way It will increase the hype for some of these tournaments, in particular ones which start really late for European players or those who aren't motivated by non-shiny prizes I was recommended by a staff member to suggest it here - I know there's been many great suggestions which have been ignored, but I hope this can be remotely considered. Please feel free to discuss.
