Week2 Day1

Results and replays for day one of second week are here!

Guilleex vs Drayyton
Regardless of... ahem... kind offers from Drayyton to prevent this match from going public (because of a misclick), here it is. LOL! Jokes aside, Guilleex has shown incredible understanding on the core given to them by RAC with a sweet team build to back it up!

Spoiler

 


Cali vs SweeTforU
A jaw dropping showdown between SweeTforU's tenacious Bronzong and Cali's towering Sigilyph. After a battle with immense pressure on both sides, SweeTforU has proven his mastery on a field with 4000 degrees of molten death below.

Week2 Day2

Results and replays for day two of second week are here!

urquidi vs Pitzzin
OMG! Leafeon! Bibarel! Was a pretty colorful roster and exciting battle! I personally loved this one! Sadly competitors started battle too early without my call so there was some errors on UI and the music at beginning was too loud. I'm sorry for that. The battle footage is completely okay though! D:

Spoiler

 

 

Suneet vs kiwikidd
Gotta admit this battle was hilarious. kiwikidd could not hold his urges and ordered his Gyarados to give Suneet's Dragonite a big bad Stone Edge right on the face... hence the battle ended. LOL!

Spoiler

 


SenorMorty vs Leviatharian
RNG Gods had a big debt to Leviatharian from last week so they decided to pay back this week. Unfortunate for Suneet that now they are in debt to SenorMorty, lol. Leviatharian wanted none of the Mind Games and just ordered his Chandelure to Fire Blast anything that moves. I was scared it would start Fire Blast'ing SenorMorty, me or other spectators too D:

Week3 Day1

Results and replays for day one of third week are here!

urquidi vs Guilleex
And Guilleex stays undefeated! This was a super close battle, Guilleex's Conkeldurr only had 1 energy left at last turn and managed to take urquidi's last Pokémon down. If urquidi's Jolteon could Protect for just one turn the winner would be different! even though it's not stated in match replay video, switch preventing moves and abilities were banned.

Spoiler

 


SweeTforU vs Pitzzin
Pitzzin could not attend because of an unfortunate schedule. SweeTforU had a default win.

Week3 Day2

A lovely day of 2 forfeits.
kiwikidd vs Cali
SenorMorty vs Suneet

Because of the attendance issues, following rules were added to PRL:

 - Forfeiting without participation is only allowed before Tuesday midnight of every week.
 - If a competitor fails to show up or fails to forfeit and has 50% or less attendance rate. All remaining matches of the competitor is automatically forfeited.


During the week, Drayyton sadly resigned from PRL. Auto-forfeiting all of his remaining matches.
When I designed RACs I did not consider berry nerf, so people are having hard time finding budget to keep up with events' costs. Which is understandable considering game's design decisions for rapid transaction from PomeMMO to CpmeMSO (Casual player milking simulator Massiely Singleplayer Online). 

I could provide a weekly fixed amount of in-game currency to all finalists so RACs were less heavy on participants if PokeMMO staff were to officially support such innovative ideas but instead, official response claimed "It would be counter-productive". Which is a clear sign of them wanting to keep the game design towards milking casual player money and care less about building more dedicated playerbase. We got this far because community did their best to support the idea, but at current pace, the game will lose what remains from it's dedicated playerbase too resulting in a dead end-game, and following that a dead game since casual players will have nothing left to look forward to achieving. I saw more than hundreds of players who were excited about such events and end-game stuff, quitting the game shortly after finishing their story. Designers assume by pumping new content they would never run out of new players or they can keep the game fresh and interesting. Typical mistake which has been downfall of a lot of AAA MMOs as well.

With that, it makes me wonder how many Seasons PRL will survive in those conditions, and how long PokeMMO will survive as well. We will see together...

Week4 Day1

We are half way there, and we still have two undefeated competitors!
People were having hard time navigating through video links here so I decided to set all unlisted videos on youtube as public.

Suneet vs Leviatharian

Leviatharian's Pokémon were stolen by Team Rocket, and while he was chasing them around he couldn't make it to his match. A brave action fit for a champion... but not a PRL champion. Suneet got the auto win.

Guilleex vs SweeTforU

This was a really satisfying match, both sides were incredibly skilled. But in the end Guilleex remains undefeated.

Spoiler

Week4 Day2

Disrespectful attendance problems were a thorn in our side since beginning of Royal League. With our new policy, we are one step closer to protecting efforts of our participants. We have two less irresponsible people in PRL now. We will not tolerate constantly not showing up for matches that require decent preparation and not telling a single word about it beforehand.

Cali vs SenorMorty

SenorMorty's remaining matches were auto-forfeited and SenorMorty got disqualified from PRL for not meeting required attendance quota.

 

Pitzzin vs kiwikidd

Everything said above for SenorMorty also applies for Pitzzin.

Week5 Day1
Having no match on saturday this week, we only have day1 lol. Anyways, this week everything went complicated, both undefeated competitors were defeated and anything can happen in ladder at this point. So excited to see who will be the person to have his/her name on  Hall of Fame as first ever champion of PRL!
 

Leviatharian vs urquidi
We have all became ascendants while waiting for urquidi, but nope. He did not show up for this race for ascension.

kiwikidd vs Guilleex
kiwikidd has been amazingly reading every move in this battle, clearly showing that no one is giving up the competition for the title that easily.

Spoiler

 


Suneet vs Cali
Having Drizzle + Swift Swim banned on all PRL matches, there was a nasty rainy looking team there on Cali's side, but that Pelliper could only carry Keen Eye. Cali would automatically lose for breaking the rule if she sent it out and rain showed up with it. So Suneet came up with a brilliant idea! He just gave her the rain with his own Pelipper!.... and this happened... LOL

Hey, everyone! The plans for following seasons are starting to take shape. There is a huge list of planned changes here so if you don't have time to read or simply don't care, There is nothing important below regarding current season other than RAC pool being trimmed down again for balance purposes.
 

Future League Conference Blueprints:

Spoiler

Observing the PokeMMO economy, and how frustrating it is to prepare for a RAC and opponent not showing up for it and stuff. The plans for following season leagues looks like this;
- League format will be BO3 Single Elimination

- I will manually pick 4 RACs from RAC pool 2 weeks before league starts and announce them.

- Every match will have one of the four pre-announced RACs randomly assigned to it right before the match.

 

So basicly instead per-match preparation, there will be per-league preparation as for the whole duration of the tournament the possible RACs will be one of the four pre-announced ones. Saving us from wasted effort and frustration.

 

This also gives us the opportunity to make matches BO3 allowing outcomes to reflect playerskill more with less RNG involvement.

 

Also I have trimmed the RAC pool to majorly consist of RACs such as "Field" and "Zone" RACs, removing most of the too complex/too simple RACs from the pool, this will reflect to current season as well.

Future GYM Blueprints:

Spoiler

From my observations GYM Battles didn't feel rewarding enough especially on GYM Leaders' end if they beat a challenger continuously until they manage to get their badge on 5th or 6th attempt or something. Just like League, I'm leaning on more "canon"izing GYM Challenge parts.

- GYMs will cost 10,000$ to challenge for each attempt.

- Winning a GYM Battle will reward 20,000$

- GYM Leaders cannot refuse to battle with a challenger who doesn't have their badge when their GYMs are open.

- GYM Leaders will not be forced to open their GYMs on a pre-determined time. They will just announce it when they open and when they close the GYM and there will be a system to help challengers browsing which leaders are available for them to challenge.

- Every GYM's format and rules will be publicly available beforehand when browsing through available GYMs.

 

So basicly, winner of a GYM battle will get 10k, too bad our leaders won't be farmable with rebattles :D but it will be more canon for PokeMMO standards and will feel more rewarding for winning side and challengers won't blindly re-attempt it until they get the badge.

Also, since GYMs will be permanently open after this season, putting a heavy schedule on leaders makes no sense, it was already too hard for them to keep up with it for 2 weeks during first season and they had to make sacrifices to keep up.

I always love to hear your feedback and suggestions so feel free to speak your mind about it ^.^

Week7 Day1
Leviatharian vs SweeTforU
Leviatharian failed to attend once again, falling to 50% or less attendance rate zone. Sad but, Leviatharian was disqualified from Royal League as a result of that.

Week7 Day2
Suneet  vs Guilleex
I totally did not expect such hyped and long awaited battle to end in this way. When there are burns, beautiful sea serpents never miss the party. As both players were trying to find opportunities to break out of sea serpent battle, Guilleex sent out his Gengar and suddenly ordered his Gengar to perform a move which was not allowed. Surprisingly, this is Suneet's 3rd victory in league because of opponent breaking a rule or not reading rules carefully, lol.

Spoiler

 


kiwikidd  vs urquidi

This was an interesting battle with an interesting roster. Sticky barbs must have been really scary to participants lol. It was well executed for both trainers but there can only be one winner.

Week8 Day1

kiwikidd  vs SweeTforU
This was an interesting match with a some hax factor in it. Still, it was played well on both ends. As kiwikidd tops the ladder now, the match of next week will decide if kiwikidd or Suneet will be the first champion of PRL. urquidi on the other hand has little reason to show up for match next week so chances still look slim for kiwikidd.

Spoiler

 


 

Week8 Day2

Guilleex vs Cali 
Guilleex's wallerino tactics with lagging tail could not hold heavy offensive power of Cali. Was a nice attempt though.
