OU still uses a lot of stalling though, especially with rain being so prevalent, which is primarily based upon stall - as is hail, which can only be used in OU/Ubers. A lot of people just go for the popular ones which seem to be Uber or OU w/o knowing the tiers and go "straight forward" (aka HO) because they don't know any better, and with a few adjustments to make their team make more sense they just play that tier that way from then on. :x People are more likely to start off with OU than UU etc so as a result by the time they do play the other tiers they know of a lot of other playstyles other than HO.

we're all right where we should be
