How does the council stand on the role of luck in our metagame? It's clear that luck does play an important factor, possibly because gamefreak hates us or possibly because we're playing a little kids' game. Do you think that luck has a place in our metagame? Is its role detrimental, and bs hax should be abolished whenever possible? Is it actually a beneficial aspect to the meta, because it ensures that superior skill is more important than team matchups in determining the victor? How does luck correlate to skill? Does it cause skilled players to be undervalued because "bs hax" often ruins what wins they would otherwise have obtained? Is it the antithesis of skill, more luck = less skill or vice-versa? Or is it a complement to skill, that actually gives skilled players even more of an advantage because they have the ability both to "damage control" so that hax that would screw over a less skilled player they can ensure does not ruin their entire strategy; and because they can use it as a weapon in otherwise impossible scenarios to have a chance at a win? Does luck contribute to a desirable metagame
, or does it detract from one?
