I gotta say this was a pretty fun ride so far. I haven't really started yet and just have been team testing for the most part but have decided on 2 main alts and what teams I am going to be using for the rest free round. The Glicko difference is pretty annoying considering that you can be 8-0 and at 2000 rating or 10-0 and at 1700. Been messing with me a lot recently. I like the suspect metagame a lot more. It was basically BW before Genesect was released. I will probably be going for the first Reqs this week then finish off the second one later. But I really have to ask why we can't just use the regular OU ladder as they are the exact same metagames we are testing. Not sure why we had to make an entirely new one to get the job done.
But into the actual metagame, this testing is pretty fun so far and I am looking foward to getting Genesect out of here for good. I like how people still believe Scarf is the best set. Scarf is great but RP and Expert Belt are probably the best sets to run overall. They are amazing sweepers and can wreck teams if given the right support. Simply get SR down, eliminate Blissey or Heatran and you basically have the game in your hands. The fact it can take basically al priority just allows it to decimate all other offensive teams that rely in stuff like Scarf Keldeo to beat it with. Genesect is really showing diversity now with all these sets emerging and right at the probable ending of it's reign too which I honestly think is a bit sad in a way. Haven't really played too much in the metagame without Genesect so I am gonna have to see if it is healthier or not without the metal machine, but I am leaning towards the fact Genesect really isn't conventionally broken, just unhealthy for the metagame. It just gives so much centralization and is dominating the charts.
