    Taking over from Steamroll

    Hello Dreamworld, glad we made it as an official tier and garnered a lot of respect as the second most active tier on Smogon. Teambats have been an activity used by the NU tier as far back as DPP and recently found a resurgence among lower tiers in BW, receiving a lot of attention and activity amongst NU and RU.

    The specifics of teambats are as follows:
    • When a host designates a time for a teambat and you are willing to participate, you will be assigned to a team.
    • Go to the channel in which you are assigned (#dwteam1, #dwteam2, etc.)
    • The objective of the Teambat is to build the best team possible within a given amount of time and that follows set restrictions. The average amount of time given is about 20 minutes but can vary from 10 to 30 depending on the restrictions.
    • The restrictions can vary pending upon the host's desire and can range from a simple "build any team" to "build a team around X mon or X type;" there can even be teambats that ban the use of certain mons or abilities (aka weather). For a few examples of what a teambat's theme could be check here.
    • When the time is up and you and your team are finished you must export the team to a pastebin and designate a user to battle for your team. The battles are usually held on the Smogon Server but can be held elsewhere if the server is down. While the battle is going on you and your teammates can help your battler on the IRC chan by coaching them through tough decisions and such, just be aware of the timer because it WILL be in effect.
    • The teambats will be announced on the forums between 2 days in advance or 30 minutes pending on what the host(s) wish. If the teambat is announced more than a day in advance it will be announced below, while one's to be held on the same day will be announced as individual posts.

    Next Teambat:

    Recorded TeamBats:

    TeamBat 1.0 (April 10 (open)
    Restriction: Top 20 Pokemon from March's stats are banned

    Team #1: Steven Snype and V0x
    Team #2: mostwanted and ala

    mostwanted vs. V0x

    Both teams were pretty similar and of course being hyper offense the battle was going to be a quick one. The turning point was Team 1's Dual Screen Deoxys-S setting up on a Scarfed Salamence, letting Raikou get KOd by Wobbuffet and Team 2's "slow" Adamant Terrakion getting outsped by Salamence. Still a close match and was a lot of fun to be a part of. Raikou with three attacks is not a very good idea btw.


    Standings:

    TeamBat Standings (open)
    • V0x (1 Point)
    • Steven Snype (1 Point)

    I just wanted to add that if you are interested in hosting you can PM me on the forums or on IRC. I'm usually on the #dw channel.

    Charmander has a nice script for those with mirc for hosting a teambat: users can enter or leave and you can automatically sort entrants into 2 teams. It even lets you list people who can host!
