  1. people suck with the way it currently works and the same people will still suck if this goes through. shouldnt waste my time like that, mb.
  2. its easier to focus on other people than actually getting your own stuff sorted, thus its even easier to make excuses. i dont see how your opponents team is any of your business when you prep several working teams or cores you can alter / choose between, but im over this making excuses bs. if you think the reason you´re not doing as good as others is the way brackets work right now im sorry for you and what im most sorry about is that i wasted time believing that bs myself. i wonder what the arguments would be if brackets got shuffled tho. "give us unshuffled brackets back, i lost to cheese" "lucky match ups for my opponents all the time" "nobody builds for that".
  3. would breeding that smeargle and the oshawatt result in 5 eggmoves being passed by any chance? if so, drop one egg move you wouldnt use by lvling until it learns tail whip to replace the egg move.
  4. i never said it should happen. i just dont see how it has any negative impact on tournaments. both contenders can scout, both can adjust teams or go with prepared teams - both go into the match on equal terms. the fact they added preview even helps people who arent in AW or SIA scouting for themselves, cause its fast and easy, so theres even less points to argue against sorted and revealed brackets than there was back in the days. how does cteaming hinder you from outplaying your opponent tho? cteams dont guarantee you free wins in any way, you still have to play better than your opponent. i think you could also argue that blind and/or shuffled brackets promote less skill, because you can just run the same team every single round. you dont need several teams, you dont need to think about what your opponent might bring and how to adapt to it. building is a skill of good comp players, so being forced to build more often demands more skill, no? you let them be succesful with cteaming - they dont depend on good match ups, they depend on you not doing anything about it. what they rely on is you being passive and lazy, nothing else. the way you put it and i used to do the same, so its not meant as harsh as it may sound, you make them the bad player, cause "Hehe, they need to cteam", but its you who lacks the ability to adapt. you are letting them prey on you. stop being a victim and do something about it, its in your hands to not get cteamed or abuse the shit out of it. imo every argument a la "ye, but why should it happen?" is another way to put "ye, but why am i forced to put in effort?". cteaming is an actual skill you´re still demonizing and sleeping on and as long as you demonize it, you wont be able to use it for your own good. that again is a choice tho, so pick.
  5. being invested in a tier also means knowing what to bring when your opponent prefers certain mons. cteaming properly is a skill, it isnt as faceroll as people make it to be, because if it was people would do it. then theres the option of preparing several teams to choose from in avance, but people are lazy, me included, yet they think its easier to blame some bracket instead of their lack of effort. i tried preparing for that throh invitiational thing SIA hosted and what i saw was this: theres people like sebat, who always run the same core, ALWAYS (at least in NU), yet he seems to be doing fine. then theres madara, who (idk if gb builds shit for the team or if hes doing it on his own, but it doesnt really matter anyways) has access to a lot of pretty unique NU teams, so gl cteaming that dude. what i wanna say is, being a victim of the current bracket system is a choice. you´re free to put in the effort to not fall victim to it, if you dont, at least have the decency to not cry about it. im pretty sure that floatingd guy put a lot of effort and thought into building his screens trode + 5 set up mons team that made finals. how many times did cteam fail tho? we´ve all been there. we tried to cteam and it didnt work out and we wished we prepared teams in advance. a mixture of both is key i think. prep teams in advance and pick one that has a decent matchup vs the meta and what people like to bring. certain effort, but if people really wanna make it thats pretty much the price they gotta pay and it should be known by now. just like i said, if cteaming works against you is your decision and only yours.
  6. cant wait to see how enuguuo gets manager, after people will spend the next few days discussing coaching in psl. but we are serious about it! no more lip service! by offering to coach you people basically tell you that they think you fkn suck and people swallow that shit like the spineless little cats they are. imagine signing up for a competitive event, not willing to put any fkn effort into it and not even having the guts to face the outcome your lack of commitment would naturally result in. ill never understand, but kudos to people that allow other people to undermine their potential; who accept wasting the effort of other people, people who actually get their shit done - truly competitive people, just because they are fkn cowards. shitfest at times.
  7. you can pass moves pokes learn naturally when both parents know the move and egg moves and tms dont take priority.

  9. ok so: 1) if he didnt kick lotus in quarters cause flinch, itd be 2 less. 2) when i saw him hax lotus, i felt relieved and sad at the same time. honestly, mainly relieved, cause tho we´ve been team mates for ages ( <3 ), lotus would have been one pain in the ass to face in finals and i feel like winning woulda been a flip. since he got haxed; free - whoever made finals. 3) ahh ye, that good old rl excuse. im pretty sure he barely had any energy left to play the tour, which is why he had to resort to skill mons. if he had the energy he probably would have had teams that required some effort while building, right? cause... uh, you cant prep teams in advance. i mean if you dont wanna put any effort into this game its ur good right and probably the right attitude, but dont give people those fkn poor excuses for being lazy af.
  10. ye and cause you didnt you get 0 credit and i said so. idk where, but im sure i did. if i was too far off you would hardly be offended. ur pretty open about not giving too many fucks about effort and building in general and you use biba. feel free to prove me wrong tho; show me a single replay of santi actually getting a play right w/o clicking bdrum or sd beforehand. you wont find a single one. thats how taxing biba is. E: maybe he actually did a decent play by doubling biba into obv lix or something like that, idk. doesnt change the fact hes bad and made finals thx to spamming bdrum/+4 sd. so ill rephrase: you dont have to be bad to use it, but you dont need a single brain cell either. if you´re selective matches in here arent too shabby either. grinds dumb tho, ye.
  11. i actually do cause someone mailed one. wonder who that was... doesnt change the fact that the most busted mon in NU is gallade. but going +4 with a single sd and hoping ur opp doesnt have a check is easier than properly supporting and building around gallade i guess.
  12. yeah, but maybe theyve been better cause you were around and maybe the current comp scene would have a higher lvl with you around. maybe im delusional here, but nowadays every tier has like 2 nice shinies each year (if we´re lucky). we dont have seasonals anymore. i havent been around at the golden age, but when i compare it to what this game is nowadays its harder to go balls deep in terms of motivation. we cant win shiny zards, eevees or turn one of our comps shiny anymore; we gotta deal with shiny ekans. bold claim, but have staff host shiny zard and NU would burn with passion and ud see something else than brainless biba spam. when all you get is "that guy". smh
  13. maybe ur just good at mons cause you put a shitton of hours into it, whether it be mmo or showdown. its easy to call other people trash when ur good at something i guess.
