      Different mindset. Nowadys there's strict usage criteria defining what's OU and UU, and BL is purely a ban tier. The subjective "as far away from OU as possible" criterion for the tiers is not really used in these decisions, so BL is kept small. That's not the way it was seen in the RBY-thru-ADV years.

      In the early days, BL was a place for things that were close to being OU, but not actually "OU". Basically, things thought to have OU power but not OU usage. UU was then set as "everything else" that was as far from OU as possible. A couple overpowered UUs were then sent to BL afterward.

      Plus it doesn't help that Smogon's GSC UU and BL tier lists were mostly theorycraft to begin with, since UU wasn't a very highly-played tier.

      Definitely. We changed the schedule a bit so it's monthly; sign-ups will be on the first Monday of the month, then challenges go up the following Friday and last for 2 weeks instead of 10 days. So, the round will keep going until tomorrow night, whenever I get home from work and figure out the scores~

      sorry diana, can you let me know when you're on on Sunday? I've been super busy this week but I'll probably be available by around 4 pm your time on sunday so if you could shoot me a vm while you're online that would be super.

      Reported your win in the thread. I am sure we will battle doubles again someday. I am trying to learn Smogon's Standard Doubles. I was busy through out most of Gen. 5 enjoying GBU Rules/VGC Rules Doubles, and GBU Rules Triples. I haven't had time to catch up to the Smogon meta for doubles with my flu near new years.

      We are in the same time zone, so getting time to battle won't be too hard, I don't figure, however, for the past three days, I have had the flu, and it's been kicking my as, for real. I have barely touched a computer recently.

      I know what I am about to say will suck, but if I don't get better before the time elapses, You have an easy win. I am too sick right now to give any serious thoughts to Pokes.

      If I can battle, and catch you online, I will, but if not, tell Pocket and company I request that you get the activty win.

      Haha no worries, that's not the first time it has happened. The same exact thing happened when M Dragon was hosting this season a week or two ago. His bolding randomly disappeared and I had to revive it by digging through the edit history (which isn't pretty to look at) and manually editing stuff in.

      If you want a crazy story, check this: when I hosted a tour once, I had to deal with the following: 1. A momentary server crash and 2. Two people faking screenshots of them winning (this was really stressful, lol, and I was worried it'd interfere with my aim of getting a fast hosting time since a bunch of us would compete to see who could finish a tour the quickest). There was also a time the bolding thing occurred to me as well if I am remembering correctly, but I recovered it by hitting backspace, so crisis averted. So really, you probably did better than me, lol.

      The craziest things really do happen in tours! There's a few more really bizarre ones that come to mind and I can tell you about them on IRC next time you're on if you're curious.

      Lol yeah, that was pretty whacky, from start to finish, and fun to watch from the sidelines! I'm sure you're saying to yourself that you'd do that all over again...

      Obligatory good job though, you did well! *Round of applause*
