Looks like the ladder got reset. Too bad, I peaked at 1220ish (give or take a few points). Volcarona's performance was okay, however you pretty much NEED spin support. Which for ubers is easier said than done, so many things love setting up on forretress.
I tried a few different things, chesto rest didnt yield me many results, could never find a good time to boost up, and I greatly missed a 3rd (coverage) attack. I tried the rain moth set from the analysis more for laughs than anything. It did alright to be honest, however Hurricane has this nasty tendency to leave things at about 10 hp, after rocks. This could be remedied with a life orb, but I personally don't like the item unless the poke has some means of recovery.
So then I moved on to a style of play I have never really tried before, Baton Passing. I have no shame, I know. My reasoning was that I "ideally" needed +2 to get a clean sweep, however I was likely being forced out or risking taking a huge hit while getting the second dance up. Smash Passing with Smeargle was a pretty quick fix, allowing Volcarona, or anything for that matter, to come in for free basically and be ready to go.
This didn't come without drawbacks however, as Extremespeed s kind of a thing in ubers, a -1 moth gets promptly owned. So I usually have my first boosted sweeper being a Dialga (but of course) or a mixed Giratina-O. After the first sweeper falls, Volcarona never really had any trouble cleaning up. All in all I would say that while Volcarona is powerful, it just feels like a waste of a team slot ultimately. Its tough to support in such a harsh environment, and in my experience more often than not you can't afford to give up momentum to support the moth, it will ultimately lose you the game.
I might give the ladder another whirl here, but after being 2 wins away and now having to start over is kind of a downer for me. I might just move onto a new team, or revisit some of my other relatively successful ubers teams.
