  1. Player Substitution Announcement: @OldKeith has substituted in @Mnemosyne for @Axelgor. @Sashaolin (Kriliin), schedule accordingly.
  2. I wouldn't say we had a lack in funding this season, we still hit 50m+ in a reasonable amount of time. The prize isn't even that significant typically, since if you were really after money, you could grind away the entire PSL prize pool (50m) in the time it takes PSL to complete. As for PSL9, I'm not sure if it would be better to try and squeeze it in before the update whenever that is, or wait until the update hits, then for tiers to settle down. An update in the middle of PSL would be quite disastrous as there would need to be some tier changes to PSL or a long pause to get new tiers and have people make new comps for the tiers, and hope that people don't just quit when the update comes out since it'll add another big grind to the game. The first few seasons of PSL had a sizable gap between them, but that was when the game itself was a bit more tolerable (easy breeding, silph co officials, etc). Now the game for many people is pretty boring and the only reason to log on is PSL. The alternative to hosting PSL with a small gap is to host other large scale tournaments like smogon does. Orange attempted WCOP but the hype died fairly quickly with the player turnout combined with the very long initial round 1 matchups. Smogon has OUPL/UUPL which are smaller scale versions of SPL dedicated to one tier, but in multiple generations. They also have smogon tour/grand slam/etc that fill up the entire calendar year, so even though they only happen once or twice a year, people don't mind since there are other big competitive events happening throughout the year. Our playerpool is probably too small for some of their events or our tiers are too limited (a PSL of just OU or UU would be quite boring, since we don't have generations to divide up the tiers). Ultimately, I think it is up to player-run events to keep the game alive for the competitive community, as the upper staff of pokemmo are not doing a great job at keeping officials hyped up like they used to be. Those player-run events don't need to be PSL, but PSL is definitely the most hyped out of all of them in recent memory. Even unofficials with a huge prize like eggplant's 5v5 deathmatch tournament didn't have that great of a turnout.
  3. Check pokemmo discord in lounge. Strider linked 2 good quality ones
  4. Linoone is literal cancer. Pretty much end of story
  5. I had staff verification of the signup being legit (ie the forum account he used to sign up was the same IP as his in-game account). Not sure if I actually said that it was the original account of Gazelli/whoever. I already knew since it was just kind of a thing that happened in 2014-2015. I didn't really put together the pieces entirely until after the midseason draft happened, where BlueBreath used his draft pick on an inactive Aura guy, and then I realized Axellgor never signed up because he had already signed up under another account, and BlueBreath would surely know (and no other manager would know cathsf=axelgor). In the future of PSL, there will be more punishments for deceiving individuals with alts, as it hurts the competition of PSL and gives managers a pretty big advantage who know the true identity of accounts that signed up for PSL.
  6. I am weak willed and watched it instead of waiting until Sunday
  7. I was just too lazy to spell out his other name and Keith didn't even type it out in his lineup

  9. I can post once monkeys submit a lineup
  10. Wasn't there a wight at castle black though early on in the show? Like that's how they discovered it
  11. Not necessarily about myself cooking, but I've been watching a lot of cooking competition shows lately. Been binging through the original Iron Chef series. Youtube has pretty much all of the episodes. I'm thinking I'm going to start to get into cooking more now, as I've been living on my own during college and have had extended periods of time where I had to cook for myself when I was at home. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NUxI09AS8MI&list=PL9U6ws7o3ik6ZW9k8d2IcbZnWrNFzIn0V -> link to the Iron Chef playlist on youtube. Currently, most of my foods have either been some kind of stir fry, or some pasta variant with some stuff thrown on top. In the future, I'd like to start to try to cook more meats, since I feel like I don't have much experience with that (my dad grills a lot of the steaks/fish/shrimp we have). Cooking is a pretty important life skill and I feel like it is also a good hobby, and conversation starter, or further down the line in a relationship, you can cook your own food for a romantic date etc.
  12. Is dragon ass some weird spoiler for something in the future? Also a prediction I have. The group going beyond the wall will get in conflict and some will die (probably the brotherhood of light people, Tormund maybe, and Jorah), and Jorah will become a wight, and they will take him back to Dany and then Cersei.
  13. Well yeah, it would probably be wednesday-wednesday deadline for semifinals and probably finals too.
