    Against Name: 17-11900-94137
    Against Lewis: 71-64051-32762

    These battles where pretty cool, I think. The battle against Name was with lots of switching against a Trick Room team who got his TR up 2 times and the second battle... well, just watch it. It was so close.

    129P / 85W / 18L / 26DC
    Overall Rate: 20.1%


    Finished with a score of 1802 I think, but it didn't calculate my last few battles. I believe I peaked at 1897 before the long run of hax and DC's.

    The main thing now is I have a new-found hatred for ConfuseRay Sableye....takes no skill to use and relies on luck >.<

    Edit: Huge difference in Day 4 than the other days lol. Edited in match facts too.....well for DC's + Losses haha, barely got any good hax in the tournament at all.

    I finished with 1499 at 26 battles, horrible I know but I had a lot of fun so I din't care. I was at 11 wins 15 loses I think. I lost to a lot of Hispanic people that were good. Good Game to everyone. My name trainer name is C-Bizzz in-case your wondering if you battled me.

    EDIT: http://vsplayer.pokecheck.org/?bid=72-95416-39533 I had no idea how to play this confusing team...

    I doubt with my dc rate (Cybertron and Ruben having no dc fanboys) that i'm going to place but if I do, i'd be very amazed. I even took losses even just to place.

    Also within my code you will find all my brief encounters with who I faced, some of which contain battle vid nos. though i'm sure i've posted more than 5 so the ones earlier than the 5th from the bottom of the code I doubt will be left online anymore. Just to put that out there for the people who are making many series of tournament battle videos from the tournament to upload on YouTube.

    Could have/Should have played a lot more but with people dc'ing on me I lost more resolve in doing so.

    That is a DC rate of about 40% (if the way I think it's calculated is correct) so you probably have little chance of being ranked, but that's what happens when you DC most of your losses as well :D

    I think my DC rate is about 28%, I'm hoping that isn't too much but I fear it is just a little bit over the minimum.

    How do you get 40% from that? From those numbers he gave, his D/C rate is roughly 20%, which should be good for getting onto the ranking. Well, provided that they don't still hold a grudge against him for that particular incident.

    Finished with a score of 1805 with my complete rain team (Politoed, Ludicolo, Kingdra, Scizor, Gastrodon, Rotom-W). Did about 50 battles in about 14 hours, could of easily hit 2000+ if I had Wi-Fi at my house and didn't have to go to my college campus. But anyway a far better performance than last tournament, only about 15 Dcs. On top of that I won the bet against my friend, Elita, with her complete sand team (Tyranitar, Excadrill, Lilleep, Sigilyph, Garchomp, Hippowdon); she placed with a score about 1746. We only fought once and I took her down, but that storm drain Lilleep was not a joke!

    You divide the number of disconnects by your total number of battles + disconnects. That gives him a disconnection rate of around 20%. I also feel as though the latter part of your post was a huge smack in the face :)

    I chuckled a bit. That would be the first time (in my memory/current day) that an official thing has a personal hate against a person in pokemon.

    Smack in the face or not, it is true :) (the him disconnecting part, but most people do this when they will lose a lot of points).

    Thanks for telling me how to work it out properly though, my DC rate is actually lower than I thought so I might actually rank this time.

    I think I could have come close to Ruben's score but most of my DCes happened on the final day of the competition. I got 3-4 in a row and then was stuck in a position where I needed to try and raise my score to get higher in the rankings, but was constantly paired with people who disconnect (mainly 1800s players) so it was impossible for me to improve. It was nothing to do with my team or my ability to play well, simply the flawed competitive system used for the tournament. I can't always complain about this as it effects everyone, but sometimes it's the luck of the draw. Some players get lucky by facing few DCers overall which allows them to DC when they do lose against good players who are at that time far lower ranked.

    Also, I had work every day this competition was on except for the final day, in which I only gained about 70 points anyway because half of my games were disconnections. So, I wasn't able to just sit there and smash it all day and night.

    Rant over :) I would be more than happy with a top 20 finish.

    But to Ruben, I don't get why you're being so bitter and defensive either. I'm only joking around for the most part because you make posts that are exactly the same, it's your character and attitude and everyone seems to accept it. But when someone else is the same, you don't. You know that quite a few of your disconnections were you and not your opponent.. So I don't get it. I know you're not trying to hide it, but you always try to shift the heat when things like that happen. Just accept that if you do win, you basically cheated your way to the top in some people's eyes. If you can be happy with that and still feel some sense of achievement, then congratulations I guess.

    Hey everyone. Know its late, laptop broke on me before the tourney finished.

    Ended with 1755 after 99 battles. Didn't get time for the 100th but not too worried.
    Probably a comfortable 1800 without all the dcers.

    I DO NOT FORFEIT!!

    Here's a few haxxy scalps i claimed ;)

    39-33122-16057 vs ?Donut. Who i'm guessin is Omega Donut. (Big shout to you in fact, without u i would have no pokes lol.) Noticed alot of hax in our match...nintendo must hate u haha! gg and keep up the good work.

    44-30008-91626 vs Jenkins One of the +1900 i beat although his team outclassed mine here. So swagger n para hax was used much lol. Hope i didn't slow u down too much bro. gg.

    90-96664-58876 vs Natsu Excadrill is a boss!!!!! gg

    Buzzing now I got my lappy back, time to start the 2012/2013 team.

    Yeah I was looking forward to seeing them after the down time but I guess we may have to wait a few more days or even a week for them to surface.

    Congrats Ruben!!

    Also good job to Matty and Cybertron for placing 3rd and 5th!

    I got 6th, very happy with that considering my D/C rate! Good job to everyone else who placed.

    Pumped for the next tournament already which should count towards Worlds qualification :)

    I placed 5th! I though I had a shot at Top 3 but looks like there are others who were just a tad bit more dedicated than me for this tournament, haha. I had very few disconnections though, which is awesome to see, especially after getting DQed in the last Friendly because my DC rate was 47%...

    [​IMG]

    I played only 90+ games this time around, compared to 123+ during the Spring Friendly (5th Place) and 156+ in the International Challenge (1st Place). Pretty pleased with how I did! Congrats to everyone who placed, especially Ruben, Matteo, Sejun, and Satoru!
