  1. The problem here isn't win rate and never has been. This is a game, it is supposed to be enjoyable. It is in your best interest for more people to enjoy playing this game. Not only is it incredibly frustrating to play against when they do work but when they don't work you often don't even know the opponent has them equipped, so you don't even feel good when you beat the creatures using these items and only feel bad when you lose to them. Supporting interactive, unintuitive and quite frankly cheap aspects of the game is bad game design, they don't add anything to the game other than being an annoyance and It should be in your best interests to remove them too. If I was to play a game where I roll a dice and I win if the number lands between 1-4, am I having fun? is it a good game? Do I feel good or more skilled when I win the dice roll? This can't be a serious argument, surely. Also how do you possibly gauge the significance of the impact that enabling sand veil has on Garchomp?

  5. my favourite anime character is that little sister from that one show who is unusually close to her brother despite the fact that she may or may not be blood related
  6. We have previously discussed trying to do something fun and to make the tournament a bit more challenging for us by having multiple people line up for each tier and letting the opponent pick who they want to play against. Would this still be allowed and not result in any penalty?
  7. Honestly completely agree with this take. In WoW this system has made a drastic difference and is unanimously a good change and I haven't ever seen a single person complain about it. Obviously this isn't quite a 1 to 1 with mmo but it is pretty close and I can't think of a single reason for someone to want to push back on this suggestion other than trying to be a contrarian. The issue with mm in lower tiers is that it seems to be a circular problem. If a tier loses traction towards the end of a season or for a different reason then with less people queuing it becomes more stale because you keep playing the sane players and longer queue times. This then makes people become even less likely to put their limited time and resources into these lower tiers and thus making the problem even worse and just causes everyone to default back to OU for faster queue times to get the same rewards in a fraction the time.
  8. Let us all agree to never talk about this battle again
  9. imagine betting money on someone who doesn't even play
  10. I personally really hate having a larger playoff bracket. I feel like it completely devalues the regular season to the point where it becomes almost pointless. People can very easily coast regular season while revealing none of their strategies and still make playoffs and at that point what advantage do you really have to finish first? Sure you get to pick your opponent but you most likely had to reveal a lot in doing so while your opponents that you get to pick from didn't. I think a 6 team playoffs should be the maximum playoff bracket and if not go even smaller. If the issue is to keep people interested and competing towards the end of the season after they can't make playoffs the threat of relegation should be enough in most cases. Right now I see PSL playoffs to be an absolute joke, you can be a garbage team all season and still get in and then start tryharding and end up winning the entire thing. Even with the advantages we try to give the top teams from regular season, the first placed team almost never ends up being the actual champions. Two times I've ended up first in regular season, including being on the most dominant regular season team in psl history only to immediately lose in semis both times. It's got to the point where I actually tell my teams that I'm not even going to try until playoffs start and I imagine this is the case for many other players and I really hope this event doesn't turn out the same way. As previously mentioned using the viability rankings for doubles would be a huge mistake. Using subjective rankings is in no way a good replacement for usage based tiering especially when looking at UU vs NU picks. And considering how historically wrong a lot of the more prominent players are about the relative strength on different pokemon I think a free draft is the only real way to go for doubles. Also if a free draft more pokemon = more fun. Also this looks fun
  11. I feel like every season we have some crazy things happen that are for the most part out of the teams control. We've had players or managers dropping out for little to no reason, earthquakes, coaching scandals, bugs, people signing up on multiple accounts, copious amounts of rng as well as many other things over the years. And the result is almost always "shit happens" and then we move on with the event. I understand we don't have the same hosts every season and so we can't expect the same standard of decisions but I really don't understand how people are ok to let all these other things slide but then give this team a second chance that they quite frankly don't deserve based on their historically abysmal performance all season and randomly decide to punish a team that worked hard to earn their spot. That being said no matter what team wins this they are getting knocked out first round of playoffs anyway, so do what you want I guess and continue this circus.
  12. Nincadas finished 4 points behind and the alleged match fix only cost them 2 points. I don't see how in any world this is fair to the lunatones. Pretending that a team that failed to do anything all season and finished 8th would have magically been a good team and won these last two weeks seems entirely baseless
  13. Gotta give them some credit. Even with their incredibly limited brain functionality they manage to remember the details to all 10 of their accounts. Actually impressed
  14. Anything in the rules about bugs or is it doomed?
