Yikes. I have nothing against Chou or Pana. I don't want to be hated for my opinion. I mean, I don't want to sound repetitive... but I think I should reiterate myself and the majority of the "haters" once more...
I enjoyed the battle. It was a good read. I read it and was satisfied. There were flaws, and all war stories have them. What bugs me, is the double standards that people (NOTE, I am talking about the PEOPLE, not the players) are showing here, destroying OTHER various war stories for the exact things said in your war story.
I do not hate the war story or the poster. I am not aiming to destroy the personal reputation or the feelings of the OP. I am just dumb founded how someone can say in one war story "I didn't like your general lack of knowledge and how you misplayed here and you wasted 5 turns" and give a player a 4, and yet they gave you an 8+. Again, not aiming my hate at you. Just saying that people are being hypocritical, and you know what, I like war stories a whole freaking lot. I do not want to make people quit posting them. Just feel that we should be fair when assessing war stories for EVERYONE.
I understand, war stories can be a long and tedius time consuming process. And for that, I am grateful you took the time and energy to post it.
Again, sorry for upsetting the majority of smogon for my opinion. I am not trying to change everyone elses opinion, I am just making a statement on the FAIRNESS that we should probably give to everyone and all war stories. That said, I LOVE war stories, and no matter how bad they are, I have never passed up an opportunity to read one. This one is by no means bad.
