  1. You get the privilege of seeing me play an additional round.
  2. Have you guys seen the TV Series version of Scream? I loved both season 1 and 2, which have the same cast / storyline. I'm about to start with season 3, although that is with different cast. I just watched a few eps of Dark season 2, and it was really good. I'll continue with it later though.
  3. Hey guys, I was hoping one of you could provide me with some anime recommendations based on the following animes that I've liked: 1) Death Note 2) Devil May Cry (only 14 eps or so) 3) Code Geas 4) Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood I tried Fairy Tail, but after watching like 4 eps or so, it hasn't gotten me hooked like the others I've mentioned above. Same goes for Psycho-Pass. Maybe those two get better as I continue, but any other recommendations would be highly appreciated.
  4. Dude the worst part about that gif was trying to figure out the message she wanted to send across.
  5. You know what I mean boo!
  6. Like I said, I have been inactive for over a year and I came back just for PSL. There was no other reason for me to play this game. The other guys would still keep playing the game no matter what, so in the end I just feel like coming back has been a big waste of time. That was time that I could've spent laying down on the grass and gazing at the beautiful stars in the sky.
  7. By relevant game, I mean make-it-or-break-it games, like when the score is 4-3 or 3-4. If I didn't win those games, we wouldn't be in POs, and I think 3/5 games have been at that stage, with the other 2 happening when the week was already decided. It's not like every member has their "ups and downs." Some have only displayed the latter. A couple of guys didn't even bother PP maxing certain moves that had 5 PP. When I asked them about this, their excuse was, and I quote, "I'm poor xD." That's frustrating since a PP max costs only 30k and all it takes is beating a few gyms to get that amount. I never ever thought that I had to actually remind ppl to pp max their 5 PP moves. Not doing so is simply a combination of laziness and stupidity, and you can't expect me to sit back and let that happen. A few of us like myself, Sweet, pachima, and Laz have been the ones consistently carrying. Others just roll up with a random team, without consulting any of us, and then proceed to get steamrolled by a mixed Mence. Some blindly copy terrible teams others have built without any input / modification of their own. So yeah, I am not willing to embrace this kind of lazy behavior.
  8. Seeing as how I am 4-1 (or actually 5-0 cuz I don't count a timer loss as a "legit loss") the Keks wouldn't be a playoff team if I didn't grab a win in every relevant game. They definitely changed things up in my absence, since a majority of them took the time to prepare and play towards the end of the week instead of rushing in and getting it over with. In no way was I even taking credit for their win, it was their effort alone, which is why I said that IF they need me, I will gladly come back because all I wanted to see was the hunger and passion to win, and they did that this week. My situation is very much different from that of Frags because after being inactive for over a year, I came back to grind this game solely for PSL, whereas Frags had nothing to lose since he kept playing this game. It hasn't been easy trying to learn the OU and NU meta in less than a span of 2 months, acquiring the necessary pokes etc. to be able to actively compete, but because I am the greatest of all time I made it look easy. I don't really care about Best Overall because this is a team tour and I don't really need an individual award to know that I am the best.
  9. Looks like I missed out a lot, and apparently even got meme'd. I'll be back if you guys need me, but I'm proud of you guys for securing the win.
  10. @AurumPegasus I just finished FMAB, I loved it! I have it on good authority that Roy Mustang is the real GOAT, and so I will be sporting his avatar for a long ass time. Ready for my next anime, sensei.
  11. It is true that high usage of a mon dictates its viability / strength, but if a mon has low usage that doesn't necessarily mean the opposite. There could be several reasons for people not using togekiss - 1) it's hard to breed so lack of access 2) some people prefer to win in a skillful manner 3) some are ignorant of its utility. Other stuff like Wobbuffet is banworthy no doubt, but because people don't know how to utilize it, it has a low usage. Otherwise how do you explain something that was once Uber now being dropped down with the only difference between the two periods being the addition of Team Preview? I agree with you about Honchkrow, but if we can find defensive answers for Togekiss, then surely we can come up with such answers for Honchkrow. 1) Crustle has Shell Armor 252+ Atk Honchkrow Brave Bird vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Crustle: 67-81 (37.8 - 45.7%) -- guaranteed 3HKO 0 Atk Crustle Rock Slide vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Honchkrow: 134-162 (76.5 - 92.5%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Leftovers recovery 2) Chople Berry Steelix 252+ Atk Honchkrow Superpower vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Chople Berry Steelix on a critical hit: 48-57 (26.3 - 31.3%) -- guaranteed 4HKO 0 Atk Steelix Heavy Slam (120 BP) vs. -1 0 HP / 0 Def Honchkrow: 148-175 (84.5 - 100%) -- 6.3% chance to OHKO after Leftovers recovery Given Honchkrow's frail defenses, it has lesser switch-in opportunities compared to Togekiss. My point is that the reasoning you're using for preventing Honchkrow from moving down to NU is very similar to that for Togekiss in terms of things coming down to luck because the right Togekiss can potentially sweep your team, it really does all come down to luck.
  12. Since this team was built around mono attacking Reuni, I used Haban Hydreigon to lure out other Hydreis.
  13. It wasn't like that. I assumed you'd scout for flamethrower, so I expected you to go to Pelipper on the flamethrower when I was facing Scizor. It just worked out in my favor.
