  • 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.
    When you come back tell me

    I'm not sure if I'll actually be able to maintain much of a presence on smogon, man. I am just working far too much at the moment. Glad to see you're still popping in from time to time though.

    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 :)
    when fight for uunleashed, im gmt-6 and can play anyday my evenings

    sounds good. i'll message you a reminder closer to the time :P
    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

    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

    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.

    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.

    It really does. I had just finished undergrad and now have a masters and am teaching, as well as engaged. Two completely different spheres of life and smogon has been a part of it the whole time.
    Hello there, you seem to be quite a legend among these parts! Like seriously, every post you make gets like 10 likes or something. If you need any help talk to me! Also I love your avatar.
    Looks like you were someone people looked up to. Nice to meet you :) if you need any help getting into gen 6 UU just let me know!
    Legacy Raider
    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
    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
    Legacy Raider
    Legacy Raider
    thanks man. never got into ubers but may give it a try at some point.
    so are you back for good, legend?
    Legacy Raider
    Legacy Raider
    looks like it mate. will be hanging around to some extent for the foreseeable future. you play much these days?
    Welcome back to the internet!

    cool to see you back for gen 6 legacy raider, i love your rmts :) i don't know if you'll enjoy oras ou that much in its current state, though
    hey bruh welcome back, you ever need any help with getting back into C&C just hit me up

    i'm in charge of the mods 9.9 and work most with the new scms. led gp for a while. currently not involved with any specific tier though
    Legacy Raider
    Legacy Raider
    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
    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!
