      Couldn't catch you on IRC, so might as well ask here. Would it be okay for you if Gym prizes include penultimate badges? Right now it'd be Badges of Valour, but once you release the sequel to Hour of Twilight then Badges of Light would be it (Gym Committee will have to update the stuff).
      1. ZhengTann

        Reasons:
        - Gives incentive to "end-game stuff" in ASB.
        - Being penultimate badges means gym winners still won't be overprepped against most recent releases (I noticed that you can change Badges of Light into Valour but not vice versa).
        - Additional variety to Gym prizes.

        How many badges are we talking about? And for how many Gym badges?

        Yes I have had a busy ref log (check how many ongoing raids are there :-O) but I promise that there won't be any more reffing 'till I post your raid. I hope to do it today or tomorrow at latest.

      Will ref your Frozen Vault raid today. Should be in about 4-5 hours.

      On an unrelated note, what is the official DQ time for the ref?

      EDIT: It might be a little later, but definitely tonight.

      Hey, I was wondering what it would take to be a raid ref. If you're even looking. I know I don't ref much but I'd be willing to handle one raid at a time or something

      What no it was supposed to attack Snorlax because that was the first line...right? RIGHT?! Darn it...

      In EotS what happens if you KO both bosses at the same time? Which item do you get? Do you get both?
      1. zarator
        zarator
        If it's NM, I randomly choose one. In HM, I randomly choose one boss and THAT boss is going to go back to full HP. No loopholes^^

      "Each trainer gets 2 CC and 4 or 8 KO Counters (8 or 16 on Hard Mode) to distribute freely among the Pokémon they brought for the raid challenge."

      What determines whether you get 4 or 8 KO Counters? Is it 4 per main boss? I think this should be made a little clearer. :/

        Well, most bosses give 4 KOC (8 on HM). There are a few exceptions (like Lugia/Ho-Oh and, iirc, Regigigas) who give 8 KOC (16 on HM)
        Feb 1, 2015
      3. Maxim
        Maxim
        So basically every encounter (in NM) gives 4 KOC, except in the cases of endgame bosses?
        Feb 1, 2015
      4. zarator
        zarator
        Generally yes. I can't recall atm if there are exceptions but that's basically it.

      Hey, quick question about our EotS Normal Mode prizes. I'm assuming we don't get the glyphs for Brave Bird and for Dragon Tail, but do we get the 16 KOC? Or is that the hard mode prize and normal mode is less KOC? Just want to make sure I claim the right amount.
      1. zarator
        zarator
        Yeah I got it wrong on that side too, it should be 8 KOC <.< Gonna fix now

      Any chance that Zt and I can be given a bit of a DQ expansion since he's on LoA and the one taking charge a bit? :3

      What happens when a mon that has threat uses Dig? Does the boss go through the dig, move to whoever's next on the list, or something else entirely?
      1. zarator
        zarator
        If the boss has one or more moves that can target the Pokemon in the evasive stage of its attack (such as Earth Power or Magnitude during Dig), it will attack the evading Pokemon, selecting through the moves that can damage it with the normal algorhytm (i.e. slate with all moves that do upwards to 66% of max dmg in Normal, 75% in Hard)
        Jan 12, 2015
      2. zarator
        zarator
        Otherwise (for example if the Pokemon uses Phantom Force), the boss will attack the highest Pokemon in its threat list that is NOT its current target (so if its current target has 50 threat and uses Phantom Force, the boss will go after the highest one besides him, whether this mon has 52 or 48 threat)

      Eh, I forget, did I beat Raikou before or after EotS? I feel like there was something silly that would make me have to redo one since I hadn't completed EotS yet.

      Another Raid question: If a boss is to target a mon using protect on normal mode, does it attack that mon or does it go to next highest threat mon?

      I am assuming the former so please confirm / deny.

      Why do you not use mega evolutions in your gym?
      1. zarator
        zarator
        Because it would help my opponent more than it helps me. Mega Gengar, Mega Banette, and Mega Sableye are cool and all, but I'd rather not use them than face the whole slew of Megas that can give me issues.
