I've been occupied recently with school and extracurriculars so my activity has been down, but I'm less busy now and Poppy said I should apply, so here goes nothing.
In my opinion, it is really impossible to not have an open mind going into the testing of these clauses because
A. We've never even thought about testing anything in Ubers because it was concieved as a banlist (I am very glad to see we are moving away from that) and
B. The clauses themselves are new ground for all of us, and it's impossible to know how they will fare without actually testing them out.
My opinion on the clauses is as follows
I frequent IRC and can be found almost any time of the American day. (I was away for a while due to my increased resolve to do well in real life, but that went away so I'm back I guess....) I generally prefer talking on IRC as opposed to posting on the forums due to the fact that I prefer the informality afforded by IRC.
My most appealing aspect as a potential council member would be as a competitive battler. My list of Ubers achievements include:
the BW Ubers Tournament
- Going 6-3 in SPL
(albeit with a bad record, at least in my opinion) in the TUberline Bridge
- Helping Steven Snype with his archived team
- I was also an active tutor until I went inactive :p
NOTE: I don't have a ladder peak to show due to being extremely busy over the past couple of weeks, I am sorry about that. However, I consistently topped ladder when I played it over a year ago, and am sure (given a couple of days of course) I could do it again.
Other achievements include (Non-Standard Ubers or Not Ubers related)
- I played in the first ubers mini tournament and made it to finals
- Lost in semis
of the little cup evioliteless tournament a while back
- Qualified for the ou suspect test
- Got to semis
of 6 Arceus Tournament
DPP Ubers Mini-Tournament
of No Arceus Tournament hosted by mostwanted
When it comes to pokemon logic I feel I have a deep understanding of the Ubers metagame, even though I am a bit rusty. I am generally a good teambuilder and judge of viability, and I feel that, especially in our early theorymon stages (now I suppose), I could be of use. I've already cited the post showing my opinion on the clauses that we will be testing, and that should be another indicator of my logic. Having played Ubers almost exclusively for two years now, I definitely feel I could be of use on the council.
