  1. Its not about money, its a fee so third person / ingame signup doesnt become the norm.
  2. What I'm saying is, after w4 almost any decision could have an impact on the whole standings; thus, every decsion would be a conflict of interest.
  3. @gbwead can we seriously consider not allowing this please. pretty much any controversial decision after w4 will most likely affect most of the standings, obviously generating a conflict of interest for small council members that would be playing.
  4. Tiers: Cheerleading Fluff: I hope gb reconsiders and doesnt allow council members to signup, it is dumb. However, in the meantime big disclaimer: I will not play for your team. I'm signing up because I saw many new aspiring doubles players, and I thought it could be fun to help the new generation grow by helping them undertsnd the meta, build, prepare, and practice. I also still have 4+ full boxes of dubs comps I can lend (but the ones I used the most are gone). Do not buy me if: You expect me to play You are also buying an stablished dubs player You do not have the budget to breed some crazy sets I might think of. They might be used for a single match, or being discarded and not used at all You need to spend more than 8 credits for me, it wont be worth it. You didnt do your research and talk to the aspiring player(s) you want me to help. They need to have some braincells on their own. If they end up being deadweights, that will be your fault, not mine. All in all, buying me is a risk, but if you do think that some of the new guys signing up for dubs have potential, and you want someone to guide them, I could help.
  5. You guys should join PSL. It is the most prestigious western tournament in pokemmo. It would also be cool for one of your leaders to be a manager. ask @heichicoda for more information. ------ 你们应该加入PSL。 它是 pokemmo 中最负盛名的西部锦标赛。 让您的一位领导成为经理也很酷。 向@heichicoda 询问更多信息。
  6. This sounds fun. Also I agree the score should be used for 4 or 5 out of 8 spots and the remainder be decided in some other way. Because: Playing more tournaments does not necesarely make you a better player: even when I actively played MMO, I rarely ever joined automated tournaments. If you counted my HoF entries I most likely wouldnt even be top 10 in dubs. yet I won 3x best dubs and 2x mvp between the past 3 PSLs and 2 WCs. Being a good player does not necesarely make you a good manager: Again, I will put myself as the example. I won a lot in PSL and Team Tournaments. Yet the one time I managed, I finished 7th. Regarding the current candidates and their respective calculated scores, there are one or two players in the top 8 that I know are amazing players, but based on my previous interactions with them, I know for a fact they wouldnt be great managers. There are qualities that would make great managers which are not quantifiable: Kay and Pachima being C and D tier shows that: Kay is one of the smartest players I know, and most importantly, he is a very dedicated and reasonable person (the later quality being very important because it facilitates comunication within the team they'd manage, as well as comunication with the host / councilmen). Pachima won PSL with a roster that predictions said would be one of the weakest. He is not my favorite player or person but you can't deny he is dedicated and he somehow makes the weirdest things work. There should be room for upcoming talent: The Chinese community represents a decent chunk of the competitive scene (as far as automated tournaments go), but they have stayed away from PSL so far. I don't know who heichicoda is, so I will talk about the players I knew from a year ago. Imagine BabyLo signed up as a potential manager, he probably wouldnt have enough points, but the fact that he built and led the most accoladed Chinese team (who at the time were winning, I'd say 1 in 4 automated tournaments), would be reason enough for me to pick him and try and get the communities closer. Ofcourse I'm not saying let's pick randomly, and I actually like the gb is using a mathematical criteria so the process is more transparent and unbiased. But I think we should only use this for at most half of the spots, as many other valuable characteristics escape the scope of what you can represent in a formula.
  7. Me. If you have been around the PSL or WC discords in the past few years, you know that I'm the best when it comes to unofficial tournament drama. I will be always available when it comes to having a lengthy argument over a decision, making sure justice is served and corrupted individuals are exposed. I may also make a power point presentation while I'm at it. Vote Julian 2021 and make PSL great again!
  8. I opened the forums for no reason whatsover other than curiosity. Saw the PSL thread, got a bit nostalgic and thought "Hmmm... maybe..."
  9. Colombia went from 2 consecutive finals to only having 5 singups of which I have only ever heard of one person.. damn. gl boys, world cup is always very fun ^^
  10. It makes the matchup much more playeable. it can take one blizzard and hit back hard which can be clutch in offensive matchups. You can also opt to run a bit of bulk to have a better chance of living giga drain and some other strong hits since you are forgoing focus sash. A spread of 92 hp / 236 atk / 180 spe with an adamant nature allows you to outspeed up to neutral base 70s and have an 88% chance of surviving abomasnow's orbed giga drain. It also allows you to lead better vs trick room teams that like leading with nuke mence. Finally, a better secondary stab, intimidate inmunity and priority give mamoswine an edge in punching bigger holes on the opposing team as they are trying to set abomasnows trick room up or after you stall it out.
  11. Yes, mamoswine over chomp in your team sounds great actually! with 3 intimidate inmunities, 2 of which are capable of recieveing swaggers boost. offensive ttar, tailwind speed control and potentially dragon gem mence for the nuke I can see your team being able to overwhelm opposing builds quite nicely.
  12. Ye, I had used lum + swagger in the past with cofag but that was mostly relegated to tr teams. Now we have even more viable recievers thanks to the new intimidate immunities. Mamoswine for instance could be really scary at +2 and in tailwind!, im excited to build around this idea.
  13. You only have two protects in your entire team. I like the pokemon's synergies but I dont agree on some movesets. not the biggest fan of orbed mence because it gets chipped down really fast in combination with sand. It also misses a couple important KOs if it is not running a gem. If you really want to get those 0hkos on tr weak darktypes I would run dark gem instead of band, but even then, I really like running berries (sitrus/chople) on my ttars. If you plan on using it on tailwind I would probably want more speed on it. Besides that, this is a bit of a more personal take but I dont love garchomp in our current meta (I think it has its place but its not that splasheable of a mon anymore) specially when paired with salamence for the double 4x weakness to ice. with your metagross not being that bulky and lacking recovery abomasnow could very realistically find its way to a sweep vs your team. Love the idea of swagger bat + lum met though. I might toy around with it myself!
