What made you quit UU? I haven't been on the UU subforum for a good week now, so can you catch me up??
If you want a change of pace, then OU or RU sounds good. OU does consist of weather wars, but two prominent weather threats Excadrill and Thundurus has left, so many players find the tier balanced and enjoyable. Weatherless HO is on the rise, for instance.
If you want to play in a tier with minimal effects of weather with a solid player base, I suggest RU. It may be an easier transition from UU for you.
It just seems to me that the UU senate is elected based a lot on background politics we can't see, while the RU council is elected a lot more fairly. Guess I'll raise this issue on the senate thread ...
Also at this point I don't think I'm a good choice, I'm deeply disillusioned @_@
I don't know what to say, Banedon. They must have been the most qualified out of the rest of the applicant pool. And who knows, maybe they had an impressive presence at #genvuu :0. I am pretty sure you'll see their forum activity spike in a few days.
Anyways, there is still a good possibility that some of the senate spots would be up for grabs again, due to inactivity. You have great forum presence, and your posts and rmts indicate that you do well in uu. If the chance presents itself, apply next time! You're definitely a competitive applicant in my book. Until then, do what you enjoy most, and keep on playing uu / contribute in discussions :d
I don't think UU would necessarily become bad just from this revision in testing. You can still influence the overall decisions by presenting practical play experience and convincing arguments. Anyways, I hope you don't give up playing, cuz that's plain disappointing :/
UU senate is a joke. Jabba says he's "much more likely to put someone who consistently posts in the megathreads on the Senate than someone who never posts in them, but is on IRC every day", and then selects ToF (with two posts on the metagame in the past two months, both one-liners) while putting reachzero on reserve (zero posts in the entire subforum). Lol.
I have to say I'm disillusioned. Maybe I'll quit UU and play another metagame, ugh.
