  1. Posting it here for peeps that didn’t see it on the discord. Figured I should let yall know why I’m stepping down, due to some personal reasons my mental health isn’t in the best spot right now, so I figured it wasn’t fair for myself and my team to manage right now seeing as I wouldn’t be able to give it my all. So, sorry if anyone was excited that I got a spot, and good luck to all the other managers, it should be a very exciting season, I’ll be rooting from the side-lines! Take care of yourselves out there
  2. More people would start playing LC if they knew there was a matchmaking they could actually play in. I know this because I am people.
  3. So there would be a lot of calcs to do if you wanted a full understanding of the impact, but I ran a few (at level 100 because im a dummy, and for steels I just replaced steel typing with fairy to simulate the resistances) I do also know that there are plenty of thinks im not accounting for, Im mostly just sharing this for the sake of continuing the discussion tl'dr: Knock off buff doesnt seem to be broken for anyone else besides conk, meta can evolve to even further reduce the threat with the inclusion of colbur berries etc. Im also bad at calcs
  4. I may be wrong/bias here, but as far as Im aware a lot of the powercreep thats happened over the last few gens was largely reverted to a large extent through the infamous dexxit, with monsters, before the last dlc, people were running spdef clefables, meaning the main knock off resist didnt even have to run max def (but yeah clef does at least resist it even as a fairy, so I understand its not the best example) Im not a gen 8 expert, but besides clef the only real mechanic pokemon thats been added from gen 5 to gen 8 that as prominent in the gen 8 ou meta game that helps with knock off is reg
  5. They would likely remove knock off from Conk (at least in competitive) like they did with draco on hydreigon
  6. Thats fair, that being said the current competitive scenes that are most active(I understand people do play older gens still, just less active) is one of the generations in which knock off is buffed. Not just on showdown, but wifi battles. Meaning there are more resources that are readily available for players to learn it. Also seeing as we have updated movepools to gen 8 movepools, it would make sense that we continue to update our mechanics to match it, which is something we've already begun to do with weather, speed boost taking place immediately, etc. I understand MMO will always have a un
  7. This might have a chance of being valid if it weren't for the fact we've had gen 8 for a good while now, it doesn't have megas or z-crystals, and you know what? knock off isn't broken there, good? Sure, no where near ban worthy. The only argument ive heard so far that seems "valid" for keeping a nerfed knock off is that Conk becomes a monster with it, but since we're going down a path of complex bans/modification to pokemon that should not be an issue. Since its another argument I hear often "We dont have fairies" I will say that we probably dont even need fairies in mmo to balance knock off
  8. I'm not going to get involved about whether or not Chomp was banworthy, but its not exactly fair to say GB hasn't given any explanations for his stance. This is just ONE of his many arguements, and Im pretty sure its longer than my dissertation
  9. If Ben signs up for psl I will bench him
  10. IGN: Havsha Reason: People are whispering me telling me to sign up so here I am. I lost in semis last time I was manager, so I want to get one win under my belt. Other Random Stuff: I'm still going to bring my stubborn managering style of arguing and writing essays so brace yourselves,. Like last time I won't threaten to boycott or leave just because a ruling doesn't go my way, instead you just might have to mute me on the discord.

    Rich List

    It provides us proletarians with a list of people we must unite to overthrow. Its time to unionize my comrades
  12. errr... 252+ Atk Choice Band Rhyperior Earthquake vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Quagsire: 118-141 (58.4 - 69.8%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Leftovers recovery +2 252+ Atk Rhyperior Earthquake vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Quagsire: 159-187 (78.7 - 92.5%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Leftovers recovery
  13. I should say, with everyone kinda going against whats been said, I dont think the ivs on the leaderboard are an issue, however tour prizes are of higher prestige and should be treated as such
  14. I don't really care either way, sure counter-teaming requires certain levels of skill, but so does team building for a blind match up (Literally pure team building). At least this way the person who doesn't have a team to scout for them isn't placed on their back foot.
