Yeah, roles are nearly obsolete...at least old ones. Your roles are basically "SR Suicide Lead" and "Attacker" lol. It is rather bland ._. Balanced is dead, you're either stalling or trying to absolutely crush your opponent's skull. Since stall doesn't really work, yeah, it gets bland lol.
And CM Mismagius was REALLY good in DP (hugely underrated, I swept a ton of teams with that little sucker) but Bullet Punch Scizor and ScarfTran came to the forefront and its effectiveness has significantly decreased. It's still not bad though, but in New UUs it's awesome I hear.
Yeah, Luke got all of the real problems...S&M was a mess when he took over and it's so much better now. this is a free ride compared to "Flameland" before lol
And I'm REALLY looking forward to Competitor coming out if chaos & co ever get it done since (at least I think) it has all generations, and I quite frankly still prefer good old Advance. Moltres was a lot better when it didn't have to take 50% health switching in =o
This is what happens when you import games instead of waiting for their actual release. Stuff gets really dry early and when the game actually makes it's release in approximately one month and like, a week and a half, it's going to be predictable and people are already going to know how to cut corners easily.
This is why I don't import. D:
Oh, and I've pretty much done worse for mistakes, but let's not get into that right now. XD But don't worry. As I've said; give it a good month and then you'll get used to the position and you know how everything works and all. It took me not that long to understand how to deal with reports, only a couple of seconds since it wasn't...that hard, really. You just choose whether to leave them pending, close them, y'know stuff like that.
Unfortunately, all the fun and games get old when the real flood of reports start to come in. Of course I had to deal with like 30 at one point. It was quite overwhelming. x_x Hopefully things are easygoing for you now. Seems as if there's barely any problems with S&M at the moment, so you're just lucky. XD
Sadly Plat like, totally did the opposite it seems =o The changes have been out on Shoddy for months now and interest seems to be dying rather than growing. I can see why though, it's a crazy metagame I must say. It's like normal DP on crack or something =o
But tournaments, even the gimmicky ones, can hopefully spark some interest if they're done right.
And that's a relief/scary thought thinking about how many more times I'm going to do that. lol. I bet the edit story will become the story of mine that everybody has heard like I'm some old man telling stories of like, the fall of the Ottoman Empire =o
Yeah. My old usernames. This is why I should switch back to one of my old names. XD
And don't worry about it. Everyone makes those kinds of mistakes. Heck, even I did. A LOT. Even one time, I accidentaly merged a post and a thread completely the wrong way. I got so worried and frantic then. Of course, only the topic title was altered, so that was easily fixed.
Well, what I'm hoping is that Platinum's U.S release sparks up people's inner competitive spirit again, thus leading them to come to S&M once more.
