Now that we've seen the error of forming a UU tier based on theorymon and not experience, would it not be logical to do the same for OU? Would it not make sense to move every Uber down to OU, and then move them up to Uber again only after testing them all together, similar to the process with our current UU suspects? OU would then be what's left over when those deemed broken are no longer present.
no error in forming a UU tier based on theorymon. The error is purely a philosophical preference issue, and really has zero bearing on the metagame. You need read my post against ChouToshio.
I don't believe we should adhere that much to philosophical purity. OU does not adhere to the same principle as UU anyway - since OU is simply meant to be the "standard"/"main"/"a balanced" tier. What's the difference between OU with 10 previous "ubers" and OU now... what makes the one with the 10 previous "ubers" better other than "philosophical" purity? The only thing we do know is that OU with 10 previous "ubers" will likely end up with fewer available choices.
