back by popular demand! <~DTC> crisis core please <%Keiran> free crisis core <@cbb> FREE CRISIS CORE So since the meta has had time to settle I think its time to revive the game we all loved to play :). There are a few things I plan on doing this time though: Bonus Points will be used a lot more. Maybe a stray Skuntank will kill your Drowzee, or you'll post Torkoal a second to late. Some guarantees though: these is always a +1 bonus point for the best poster during each round. We will make fun of you if you have negative points. The old OP (Move your mouse to reveal the content) The old OP (open) The old OP (close) Introduction Hello NU players of the world! For those of you who have witnessed the debauchery that is "Counter That Pokemon" threads will know that they very quickly become PC++ games. This game is designed to be different, instead of just posting Heatran as a counter every other post we will all be attempting to counter some common(and maybe not so common) cores in the Neverused enviroment. In an attempt to maintain the activity from that thread while having discussion more pertinent to the metagame, we are going to start a little competition. This competition will see who can consistently demonstrate knowledge of the metagame. The Goal The object of the game is to post the best possible Pokemon that counters the duo posted by myself at the start of every round. By posting 1 or 2 Pokemon that counters the duo, we will obtain knowledge of the metagame and you will gain points. Another aspect of the game is to prevent the other players from getting points, and this is done by proving in this thread that their post does not counter the duo as well as they say it does. Without further ado, let's play Crisis Core The basic concept is that we want to discover ways to break common cores in the metagame without real difficulty. NU is balanced and a lot of cores are becoming very common and people are struggling to break them, our job is to find a way. Your Pokemon must be viable. Leaderboard: no one yet!!
