    Then let's not discuss it further. I will admit that perhaps that specific comment might have been a stretch, and I apologize for that.

    I was going to say more here, but I'll just leave it as that Smogon and I would not be a good match due to the fact I don't dedicate myself to online battling in the fashion that Smogon does. I'm more of the friendly help-out person. Heck, I'm cloning a pair of Shiny (legit!) Genesect for people right now.

    Sorry, but as a policy I reply to all VMs except for clear spam (which is another story).

    You need to know I'm not trying to be rude OR disrespectful, just stating my opinion on what I'm reading. I am extremely matter-of-fact in how I state my opinion. In the end, everyone (including you and me) has their own opinion, and I fully respect that. But if you want to talk about rude and disrespectful, I have to point out that I felt you were being that to me, as well, in some of your remarks. Without going back two pages, "all of your points are invalid" is in effect saying, "you're full of shyt, don't talk again".

    To clear up: anyone at Smogon can do whatever they want. But trying to claim they are "fixing" the game is basically Smogon saying, "Nintendo, you release broken games, make patch immediately!" or something to that effect. And Nintendo doesn't care what one corner of the Internet thinks. Nor do they care what I or anyone at PC thinks. They'll do what they want to. I respect that Smogon is trying to come up with a competitive ruleset based on tiers for their Web site (not outright banning, just stating what tier something can play in), and that very concept is something I personally do not like, so clearly I don't go there.

    BTW, it's true that my Mega Mawile got its butt handed to it; it was my first time trying it out, and it never had time to even react. Possibly a mere strategical error; possibly not. I was also against a very good battler, which has something to do with it, I think. So if my opinion on Mega Mawile's "ban" to the highest tier is flawed; sorry, I speak from my experience using it, and the strategy used against it by another OU-tier Pokémon or two effectively shut it down. My opinion comes from my experience, not from what everyone else says.

    So please be respectful of that opinion. I'm not trying to be rude to you or anyone, and hate that I sometimes come across like that. I just strongly debate my point to the fact that someone is offended in the end by it. I don't mean that, but it happens. But trying to claim my points are invalid when they are in fact valid in their own way is just as "rude", if you will, as me saying that comments regarding "fixing" the game are a load of bull. And, in my mind, it is. You likely won't change my opinion.

    Well at least they're taking the right steps, although power creep still looks like a serious issue.

    Actually I agree, I suppose at this point we can't afford to be picky and we'd probably have less then 10 tutors anyway. We have to organize it properly though and I'm not sure who is willing to put in all the time to ensure the program works.

    Actually yeah I saw some BP teams back in Gen V when I had a shot at OU, frustrating since it's so much harder to break the BP chain nowadays. Personally in terms of fun I find just offense vs. offense to be the most fun to play and watch. No BP, no weather. Any offense team can beat another, it's just down to execution while something like BP requires a specific team comp to effectively stop I would assume.

    Yep, we can't just force people to talk competitive. It will never work that way, we need to create and maintain interest as you said. And sadly I feel that the current state of the server is a big factor in the lack of interest. Tutoring I feel would be a good option, introduce newbies to both the server regulars and battling together. Problem is we have barely anyone experienced enough to hand out proper advice. DA, you, Kevin Garrett and Karpman are the only ones I can think of cause I'm both rusty and lacking really in metagame knowledge.

    I generally agree. But I feel we need some drastic change for now then slowly shift back to a more casual state. I don't agree necessarily with throwing people out as you said there is potential there but in the past we have tried to make the server more competitive-focused and people just defer back to old habits after a few days. I don't like the idea of kicking anyone out but this issue isn't going to be solved by mods trying to force people to talk about competitive more. Yeah the ideal situation would be to have newbies and regulars on the servers and lunchtime gossip on the TPC.

    Yeah that was $79 I was not going to spend, bought Zelda instead :X That being said that was like 6 years ago.

    Higher ranking matches are always a lot more fun and tense and you can appreciate the losses more because you actually feel like you were outplayed rather then bs like flinch at the worst possible time or all your attacks missing. I'm surprised BP teams got that powerful but XY did grant a lot of tools to make it stronger I believe?

Yeah, this is it for me. Five years ago today, I joined PC. Now my time here is coming to a close a half a decade later.

I won't go too in-depth here besides to say that my battling skills (and interest, to some degree) have eroded to the point where they couldn't be salvaged without time and effort that I can no longer muster. Furthermore, it just hasn't been all that fun for several years now for a ton of different reasons I do not wish wish to list, and having fun is the point...

This blog won't be very long. I obviously haven't posted many of these. Yeah, school can be a pain when you have a lot of homework and not a lot of energy.

Anyway, I originally thought that the second iteration of Stage 3 (to use Smogon's wording) would just be Manaphy and the already-OU Latias...and that's how it was going to be. But now Garchomp is being added into the test according to Jumpman, I would assume due to the close 44-41 vote in favor of it being Uber.


Posted September 12th, 2009 at 02:44 PM by Anti Comments 5
I figured I'd have some fun and predict the Stage 3 voting results. You can post some too if you'd like. I'll probably be wrong on about all of these, but I thought I'd have some fun so why not?

Shaymin-S - Uber

I think this will be voted Uber, actually. I think people are afraid of hax and afraid of Skymin's power and Speed. I actually don't blame them--it's a pretty effective Pokemon. I just wish...

They have finally been released, and you can find them here. I'm glad they're out, especially since I contributed to them this time around :3

The biggest "shocker" to me was Blissey at number 14 (if you include the Rotom formes, which I will do for this whole entry). How the mighty have fallen. Blissey is probably the best defensive Pokémon in the game, and it's not even close to the top ten. As a user of Blissey, my guess is that Blissey being vulnerable to Trick as well...

I know, long time, no see, right? People often complain about how S&M is dead, and while there isn't much we can do about that (after all, we cannot control who decides to frequent in the section), I figured that I might as well start using this again to maybe, possibly start some discussion. Honestly, I am still a bit puzzled by the failure of the Metagame Discussion Thread, and the best conclusion I can come to is that it failed because it was too bland or boring in some way. Hopefully I can...
