    Very informative and a great read. I liked the ending a lot, and was very pleased to read the advice section at the end. Also, I LOVE the psychological warfare going on here!

    I love this warstory. Very descriptive, even if the battle is a tad bit long. This is archive material, and I love the trade Pokemon thing. I was looking at your initial EQ damage calc and saw your error immediately. Heatran pretty much is guaranteed to die to a STAB EQ, but the Shuca Berry came in to save the day.

    Again, nice job.

    great war story!! my only problem is that the image stretched the page, making it difficult to read. . . but it was so well written that i scrolled right and left just to do it

    I'm gotta admit this is more than 5 star quality here, quite possibly the most entertaining warstory I've ever read, you're a great writer and battler

    Great war story! A nice twist at the end; I thought Heatran had Expert Belt!

    ^Agreed :P

    I'm slightly sad that I only got to see the latter end of this match live (yeah, kill the dramatic ending for when I read it -_- I screwed myself over). Regardless! Awesome playing Eo, and I am really looking forward to upcoming Warstories from you!

    On a side note, LR is in a ton of amazing Warstories ._.

    the damage calc of gliscor v. heatran is wrong you used gliscor's base attack and not calculated stat, its a guaranteed KO

    EDIT: i need to stop posting before i finish reading

    Absolutely loved the battle. I love in-depth commentary, and while the lack of color might've caused some people to skip over this battle, I actually am beginning to like that style of warstories. The battle itself was superb, with a ton of predictions, although I have to admit I got annoyed with the obscene amount of U-turns at the beginning ._. Maybe it's just because I hate that move used on me, but it's funny how a Base 70 Bug move can really change the momentum of a whole battle.

    Nothing really else to say, great warstory, though...

    And I was gonna read that this week =/
