A few things that I think should be in that follow-up article I mentioned:
-Laddering is different when you're further down: Scrubs and test alts alike infest the lower reaches, making threat coverage even more difficult
-Trying to apply concepts that they're not good enough to implement
-Suggestions on how to improve (how to sneak into B101?)
Get Out There message: Hopefully by admitting you have some of these problems, you will take the first step towards fixing them and being another successful student of Smogon University. Or at least put up a fight when Soviet decides to take your lunch money.
(like hell I'm writing this, I'm in that camp myself)
Wait people took my follow-up article comment as serious?
Thanks for the praise, it makes me think of actually doing that article now :)
And yeah, collab could sound cool, I'll think about it :) thanks for the offer
Congrats on the Smog article about the other end of the ladder. Definitely looking forward to your promised follow-up article...seeing as I fit that mold pretty much to a T, maybe we could collab on it. /fishingforbadge
