    Dude I didn't D/C :S, I forfeited and was more than happy to give you those points for I am just playing for shits and giggles at this point due to my D/C rating being too high and bound to be disqualified. I actually wanted to save that battle and play it back to see where I made mistakes/where I could improve in the future...I figured you recognized my name and D/C'd to spare my rating

    gg boss.

    I only DCed one guy who won a crit with a Hitmontop. Sorry, I can't take that, since my Chandy is EVed such that it will survive a gem dark gem.

    As for the others, I didn't DC, it really could be my internet working up. I give wins to others too. Or I played all kinds of RQ, my ratings would be 1900+. I am not the kind of DCer you are thinking, dude. I did almost 80+ Battles recorded battles cos I didn't attempt to RQ, less that Hitmontop KO my Chandy with crit Sucker punch.

    1997...lol and i have to go for work and only 3 hours left in the evening..i guess i will stick with that fail-funny number and a maybe top 15 result.

    if i will get a rating anyway..i have to admit though i ragequitted 4 times, but always when my opponent haxed me out like hell and its fucking frustrating losing like 50 points just because your opponent gets 3 criticals + 3 paras in a row :( the even more funny thing is, i faced almost everyone again , where i ragequitted, beated them and guess they ragequitted xD I guess that makes it somehow fair.

    my dcrate should be high, maybe iam lucky to get the rating cause day one i battled a lot of battles and had almost no dcs...hmhmhmhm.

    It looks like I'll end team:goatee's run on a winning note with a 4-0 win which should put my final rating at around 1750. Just for the record I did not disconnect intentionally against anyone this time. Wish I could say the same for the likes of AuraRayquaza (TARAN), RayRizz & Ben7000 though I'm sure they're going to claim it was their wifi connection, but their bloated ratings would suggest to me otherwise. Those 3 were brilliant matches I would win only to get those accomplishments taken away, so I demand an apology.

    I'd like to echo Evans words here, I really am so disappointed with the amount of D/C issues the majority of players have faced throughout this event. I gave up, to my regret, early on in this tournament because of my D/C percentage which was something I had hardly any problems with in the past wifi tournament. I have been surprised more than I thought by a lot of players I held and rated highly with their actions throughout these events because there is really no excuse what so ever to D/C a battle no matter what the outcome is. I understand that frustration can 'hit in' when you players are continually D/C'd on themselves but its like a vicious circle and knock on effect to encourage more players to do the same in future matches if you do the same yourselves. Although I will congratulate the top players for their efforts I feel a bit resentful of this as I don't believe the results for this, and you can argue the past events, to be a true reflection of the best players. Lets hope for the next event Nintendo, TCPi and Gamefreak have something in the works to prevent these issues from ruining these events and creating rifts amongst the community.

    EE, that is not Ben7000 you played as he is not even in the tournament I think. About 1980 so going to aim for the top 5 finish after school.

    Thanks for confirming that Plusle, I won't blacklist those last 2 imposters, but hopefully AuraRayquaza should come forward.

    team:ee just got DC'd on after 1st turn against someone with a salamence/yanmega lead.

    now facing Rose (1235) how lovely.
    easy last win before I go to work.
