I don't object as long as GenEmp has some serious oversight. Putting one person in charge of the tiers was what caused the desire for suspect tests in the first place, and that was when reputable admins like Jumpman and Aeolus were running things. This doesn't seem like much of an issue due to staff restructuring though. My only request is that there's a PR thread kept up to date regarding tiering choices and explanations of them.
I've always thought it was dumb to have the banlist from OU carry over into DW, which is why I play DW on PO instead of our server. Over there it actually has traction as a legit and fun tier. I'm glad someone is stepping up to push the issue here, even if it is in this kind of fashion.
Ban Soul Dew: yeah
Unban Exca: yeah.
Ban Chandelure: I disagree with this one. People see Shadow Tag and say "sweet, we can just ban it and nobody will care", even though ST Chandelure exists solely to counter Ferrothorn (who is everywhere because of Soul Dew Lati@s) and Techni-Loom. Chandelure isn't "literally like Wobb 2.0", it has terrible defenses and terrible defensive typing and it's insanely difficult to switch in. It might literally be the easiest pokemon in the entire tier to set up on, especially if Excadrill becomes legal again. SD Excadrill, CM Keldeo, CM Lati@s, DD Dragonite, any auto-weather mon except Abomasnow, any Shell Smash user, there are tons of legit options to use to punish Chandelure users.
p.s. thanks for bringing more attention to this great tier
NIGMAN: JRRRR IS A SHIT
NIGMAN: HO ESLE THINK IT??
