  3. I dont really buy into the whole "versatility" and "exerience" stuff when it comes to dubs/singles. Theyre seperate formats, like VGC and singles, or heck to give a real world analogy sevens rugby vs rugby. Yeah there are obviously inherent similarities, but theyre different sports. I dunno, I guess the big thing is that if we want the players to be versatile, we should expect the same from the gym leaders. Unless we're just gonna acknowledge that the gym leaders aren't necessarily the best of that team, in which case their choice to select dubs is definetly a choice to try cheese things/the other better players dont want to be gym leader
  4. I agree that people who only play dubs will be at more of a disadvantage than people who only play single. In an ideal world there would be a singles and dubs version of this event, but we just dont have a large enough player base
  5. The big distinction between tiers and formats isnt the meta, its the mechanics. The mechanics of OU are the same as UU and NU, but the mechanics of a singles battle is totally different from doubles. Whilst you can take your knowledge of OU mechanics to the lower tiers, its far less applicable to Dubs (and vice versa)
  6. Eh, still kinda feels cheesy. Challenges based on versatility should probably stick to the gym trainers, but I'm really not too concerned, I don't want to be a negative Nancy or anything
  7. Stage 0 is optional, taking that challenge on will reduce the cool down and count towards a single victory in Stage 1. After you complete Stage 1 you will need to complete Stage 2. In stage 2 you have to earn 2 victories vs 2 elite trainers in 2 different tiers. So, UT, or any other tier you chose in Stage 0/1 will not count towards Stage 2's tier requirement.
  8. I do kind of feel like the gym leader should always give an option of two tiers. (Perhaps one HAS to be OU) since having only one option (dubs) kind of cheeses the system a little. A gym can put a really good dubs player as their leader and effectively limit the possible competition who can realistically take their badge. Since a lot of the people challenging will not have played dubs, meaning they'll have to breed up a team, learn the tier and then win against someone who's been playing dubs for years. Is it possible for new dubs players to win in this time? Sure, but it does seem like a no brainer that if a gym wants to defend their badge they should just make the gym leaders dubs only. I dunno, I get the need to keep the gym leader as the biggest challenge, and enforcing one tier like dubs is a very easy way to do that. But, it feels like a fairly cheesy way of doing it, I'd rather a gym badge be difficult to get because the gym leaders are the best the team has to offer, not because of the barrier of entry of a tier.
  9. If we go bo3 I think it should be (Gym Leader's Choice/Loser of M1 Choice/Loser of M2 Choice). I believe this is more in line with smogon tours, and just seems fairer, whilst still giving the gym leader an intial "advantage"
  10. Defog will only remove screens on your opponents side of the field (not your own) so when Defog is Magic bounced, your screens are removed and not theirs
  11. Giving lucario a chance in uu was a mistake
  12. I posted this a while back in a movement discussion thread, its more so about arena trap than duggy specifically, but since the two go hand in hand I figured thats fine. The examples I gave I think were more NU orientated since it was NU back then, but the logic and theory remains the same.
  13. For the record I think dugtrio is banworthy in OU too, but this is a discussion about it in UU not OU.
  14. A manager should behave just drafted no one and played themselves the entire season as a flex ?wasted opportunities
  15. Honestly valid, no one can expect you to do that. Like dont get me wrong the amount of effort you've been putting in as host is really admirable, I dont want you to think Im ragging on ya, I just don't agree with the confirmation fee, since it just feels too much like a half-heated sign up fee for some people and not for others Yeah exactly! Its just like posting on the forums but in a specified discord channel for the victory screens in the discord!
  16. A couple of seasons ago id agree, but for last few psls and wcs we've almost exclusively used discord for sharing screenshots of victories and arranging our battles that I dont think this is an issue anymore
  17. So in 13 seasons theres been just 3 cases of people signing up for someone else who refuses to play. That's really not bad at all considering the amount of sign ups we get per season. I dont think we ought to be disuading people from signing up (even if they dont have a forum account, and for one reason or another wont make one) The issue of players refusing to play isnt event exclusive to other people signing up for them, theres so many times people sign up stating "I wont play for x manager" and stuff. The issue of "joke registrations" isnt fixed with a 25k confirmation fee, people sign up for themselves with no intentions of playing saying things like "dont buy me I'm too busy" or whatever. There's likely more joke sign ups from people signing themselves up than there are people signing up for other people.
  18. Sign ups will be on the forums, because people just get their friends to sign up on their behalf just like theyve always done. If people dont want to make a forum account thats there choice. Theres no difference between confirming their signups if they included 25k in the mail or not, its just pointless and will only put people off taking part in the community events.
  19. I dont love this, people dont need to be forum members to be a part of the community, but these fees are kinda gatekeeping it so you need to be, should be able to send confirmation over discord or just a regular mail, we dont need to add more obstacles.
  20. Wait was showdown tiers even discussed this season? F, my bad remove me from the sign up lists
  21. probably should have just been a set price fine, I didnt think people had such money to flaunt, but hey, prize pool should be good
  22. to be fair GB is using a clear system based on stats to work out his manager picks, so Its transparent and anyone is free to double check the maths, so I wouldnt call it bias. Now whether being good at comp makes you a good manager is a different story all together, unless coaching becomes permitted, or they just hide their coaching but no system is flawless
  23. I think its fine to have people who got banned in the past get back in the good graces by paying a fine, call it reconciliation, community benefits by both having more reward money and not having half the community banned. If they cheat again blacklist them for good, but since their bans weren't intended to be permanent to begin with this is good.
  24. Not getting involved in this discussion anymore, but I'll give my final statement I guess. Hitmontop Nidoqueen: Slowbro: Durant: Aerodactyl: Sigilyph:
