    I'm scondrig there.

    Some important comments...I was a bit concerned that for the most part (and I can't confirm without intensive statistical analysis obviously), it seemed like there wasn't a group of players that won at as high a consistency as I would like to see in a metagame. I personally define "good health" of a metagame as the ability of a metagame to produce a group of players that win at some high arbitrary percentage consistently (doesn't matter which players, as long as there is a significant enough group). Of all the metagames I've participated in, this version of BW2 OU (suspect) had the least high percentage consistency that I saw, which is a big concern for me (no, this doesn't mean I'm voting Kyurem-B uber. It is 100% OU atm).

    Some mostly insignificant comments...big ups to TheGreatMightyDoom and his Hippo + Stoutland team raping me 3 times. I know others said it wasn't very good but you wrecked me with it (mercilessly). Also big ups to yee (even though you said I sucked) and Mcmeghan for giving me enjoyable battles. Big ups to Double Dance Thundurus-T and max speed Tentacruel for raping Genesect and Deoxys-D teams.

    MAJOR slops to the metagame for not producing enough players winning at a high enough rate (for me), and major slops to all you skilled players using Deoxys-D + sweeper teams just to make reqs...you know you're all better than :P

    i apologise for some of the teams i used although i guess i should also apologise to myself because most of them were absolutely terrible. this wasnt much fun so i just tried to force the game on match-up every battle so i could autopilot through the test

    the round is ovaaaaaaaaaaaa

    i updated the OP with screenshots of the top of ladder. please confirm your alts if you haven't already (no need to do it twice!!!). i'll leave this open for about two days. special applications, as always, are still open until voting goes up

    also note that not all the accounts listed in the OP made requirements. you still need a glicko2 rating of 2000 or over and a deviation of 55 or under
