  1. VGC '12 World Championships - Kona, HI, USA - WON by BlueCookies & Dimsun!

    Congrats to the winners. So apparently, Pokémon is a luck based game in which Ray Rizzo always wins. That being said, although he only had to win like 9 matches, it still makes it seem like everyone else is really bad at this game... Anyway, really incredible achievement there. Hope...

  5. VGC '12 Italy National - Milan - April 1st - WON BY --Kasty--!

    Hey there, posting to say that I just got back home from Milan. It was a pleasure meeting all of you people again, unfortunately we sort of failed at partying / chilling together compared to Paris lol, but it felt awesome to see all of those now-familiar faces. Hope to hear/read some of your...
  6. VGC '12 Italy National - Milan - April 1st - WON BY --Kasty--!

    See you there, my friends. Arriving on saturday evening, leaving tuesday afternoon, enough time for sightseeing, I guess. On a related note, anyone know how long the metro/train green line no. 2 takes from Centrale F.S. to Assago Milanofiori? 30 minutes, 45 minutes? It´s 12 stations and like...
  7. Game freezes, rematches, tiebreaker rules and the Latin cocktail bar (VGC Paris 2012)

    No, I haven´t qualified, but still had a great time. I´m not going to post my team either (sorry), because of potentially going to Milan. Nevertheless, this is still rather text heavy, but I also added some pictures for those who don´t like to read much. Also, even if you´re not interested...
  8. VGC '12 France National - Paris - March 17th - WON BY bharmalm

    OMG Havak you stole my spotlight j/k as I just came home and wanted to post one of the group pics, but my sis has not sent me the pic yet :( So, I got back home from Paris 2 hours ago. Had a wonderful time there, even though I didn´t qualify for worlds. Beat Albert in round 2 in one (which...
  9. VGC '12 France National - Paris - March 17th - WON BY bharmalm

    Yeah good luck everyone! I´m kind of nervous already, been nervous for a few days now. I don´t know if it´s because of the flight or because my team is just a fun team. Well, there´s going to be so many smogonites...we should probably use nameplates or something, there´s no way to remember...
  10. VGC '12 Germany National - Essen - March 10th - WON BY toasdt!

    28 people in finalists lounge after three rounds means 224 people total...which isn´t many, probably because it´s early in the morning. @Firestorm: Flame was one of the last year´s worlds participants (from Germany). Congrats DaFlo for qualifying. Lol there´s going to be a lot people...
  11. VGC '12 France National - Paris - March 17th - WON BY bharmalm

    What drug_duck meant by good players from all over Europe...was that I´m coming as well (only he knew, so far). Basically, if there was a direct link from my capital to Madrid, I´d go, but I don´t feel like flying from Vienna for 350 €-ish only to piss off some Spanish guys on their home...

  13. Simulator Usage Statistics for VGC '12 (Updated January 15th)

    Why is Gastrodon listed as 29 - Gastrodon (3.47 %) and 42 - Gastrodon-East (2.11 %)? Unless I´m missing something obvious, they´re the same Pokémon. Thus Gastrodon should be #18 with 5.58% before Kingdra (?)
  14. VGC '12 Germany National - Essen - March 10th - WON BY toasdt!

    This is sooner than I expected. Unfortunately, this is exactly on the day of the parliamentary elections in my country and I can´t afford to miss those. Damn it. Good luck fellow German friends, have fun in Essen and don´t demolish Picollo´s house/apartment, I´m sure that one will be...
  15. International Wi-Fi Tournament - Autumn Friendly [OVER - Rankings Released Nov. 1st]

    Exactly Dark Ray...for example I´ve had 3 communication errors (2 of them after my wins, one during a losing battle), no problem taking a -50 if my Wi-Fi dies for some reason. Wait DCs should be penalized not counted as losses. Then there would be no difference between a forfeit and a...
  16. International Wi-Fi Tournament - Autumn Friendly [OVER - Rankings Released Nov. 1st]

    Eradd, if they can´t differentiate between a communication error and a switch-off, I´m in the camp of "you´re responsible for your connection" and thus you lose points. They can´t know whether your sister goes to the PC and changes the wireless settings to auto WPA/WPA2 (so that she connects...
  17. International Wi-Fi Tournament - Autumn Friendly [OVER - Rankings Released Nov. 1st]

    Well, I just hope that things will cool off on tuesday after this mess is over, I really hope so. Basically, it´s pretty clear by now, that in this tournament, it is possible to play all day long for 5 days straight and not lose a single battle, just by disconnecting during/after the battle...
  18. International Wi-Fi Tournament - Autumn Friendly [OVER - Rankings Released Nov. 1st]

    Sorry FRANCO from France, I got a communication error three turns before your supposed win. You played well and deserved the win. I apologize. 9 battles so far today, 6 wins, 2 disconnects, plus 1 communication error that was supposed to be my loss. Big props to Sheldon (1785) from the UK...
  19. International Wi-Fi Tournament - Autumn Friendly [OVER - Rankings Released Nov. 1st]

    Firestorm will you be listing people´s ratings after the tourney´s over? Sorry it´s just my habit to list records lol (see sig).
  20. International Wi-Fi Tournament - Autumn Friendly [OVER - Rankings Released Nov. 1st]

    I know I shouldn´t have, but I laughed too hard. Synre you´ve won this topic, even if your rants aren´t very politicaly correct. Also lol since when is this topic called Autumn Disconnection Marathon? Nice one, TRE...I mean R Ina ;) 1875-90-10-10-3) is an awesome score (lol my 1766-50-9-16-2...
