      Wow legacy raider you're alive after all these years? I've never talked to you before but I remember using your team on wifi when I first started learning competitive pokes back in 2011. It was azelf, lucario, gyarados, tyranitar, scizor, and porygon2. That team was unstoppable and I literally won every battle with it. Just wanted to say that you're a freaking legend.

      i know u dont know me and this might be weird but u just generally seem like a cool dude. youre polite and still get ur point across, its a good change of pace from most of smogon haha

        Legacy Raider
        thanks, nice to meet you astroboy. appreciate the compliment. i think so many of our users, even badged users, are too quick to jump to veiled insults and mocking. if you start off in that position the conversation isn't going to go anywhere good lol. always better if people can stay civil :)

      Hey, I just saw some threads you made in like 2009. These warstories still look so cool, well done about that. Hope you'll enjoy the ORAS UU as well ! See you around
      1. Legacy Raider
        Legacy Raider
        thanks. back in the day the simulators had no handy replay function so the best way to recreate those epic battles for others to enjoy was to write them out from the log. a lot more time consuming but more satisfying imo. and yeah i think ORAS UU is a very fun metagame - the power level is actually quite similar to DPP OU, which was my most played metagame before.

        I was gonna say that right now the meta really reminds me of Gen 5 OU
        Nov 23, 2015
      3. Legacy Raider
        Legacy Raider
        yeah i think that's why i'm drawn to it. there was definitely a huge power creep through gens 4->5->6, so much so that they even had to update the BSTs of old pokemon to make them comparable. i'm like you in that i love to play balance, and right now it seems the uu metagame is very satisfying overall!

      Wow, I just checked the cms and I saw 20 edits by.... WHAT? Crazy, I think you left right around when I joined. A lot of my early contributions were articles and I always enjoyed your dp ones when I started out.
      1. Legacy Raider
        Legacy Raider
        Haha yeah I've been trying to get into the UU and RU metagames so have been trawling the analyses simply to bring myself up to speed. But I felt I was familiar enough with some of the basics to suggest a number of changes so that's what I did haha! Thanks man, DPP seems a lifetime ago.

        Legacy Raider
        likewise nice to meet you, i've heard good things.
        always had a soft spot for UU - played it in Gen IV and V, and am now enjoying it in Gen VI much more than the mega-sab/goth nightmare that OU provides. looking forward to seeing you around the forums :)

      you were an idol to me back when I was a lad, sir. I remember I played symphonyx64 on wifi and he named his scizor after you... anyway hope to see you in spl
      1. Legacy Raider
        Legacy Raider
        wow incredible i didn't expect anyone to name their pokes after me lol. i hope his scizor was holding an iron plate! i'm still quite rusty overall but may well go for spl. thanks for the kind words :)

      "catching up on 5 years and 2 gens of missed smogon" - oras ubers is the most competitive tier atm, dont let anyone tell you otherwise

      good to see you again, I rather liked your warstories :o

        thanks man. never got into ubers but may give it a try at some point.

        nice one :)
        i'm still bringing myself up to speed with the different metas, feel relatively comfortable with ORAS OU now. will probably start looking at UU soon, especially since it seems mega-sableye and gothitelle are strangling a lot of creativity in OU atm and making it less enjoyable to play in.

        in terms of contributing again i probably want to start relatively slow, adding my 2 cents to random analyses-in-progress in the workshop. once i feel more confident in my gen 6 pokelogic i'll try getting involved in bigger areas :)

        sounds good dude, can always use the extra insight. if i find you using the scms a lot i'll probably get you to take the site staff test so you can cache your own edits, just be sure to brush up on the gp standards too

      omg i loved your warstories, (shame that part of the website got discontinued) they were honestly a big part of what got me interested in competitive mons, happy to see you back for gen 6 oo
      1. Legacy Raider
        Legacy Raider
        ah thank you man, warstories don't seem to be very common any more so perhaps i can restart the trend. i recently read a an interview piece about you which was pretty cool. tournaments seem to have become a huge thing in smogon over the last 5 years!
