    Nice one! I especially, like everybody else, enjoyed the laddering article. It's very useful and I even found a few of my own flaws in it! Also, these are getting up faster and faster with each one. Nice job guys!

    Well done everyone. I like the final product a lot, especially bugmaniacbob's court room art and Reverb's ladder article.

    Jimbo is getting bigger by the day. Congrats.

    Really loved the art in this issue, along side X-acts speed analysis. The double interview were very nice reads too. Congratulation's to jimbo (again).

    I liked it, no doubt, but it felt like it was missing something that I just can't put my finger on. I especially liked the guide to laddering, but I think it could be applied to all ladders, not just OU. I can get frustrated, but I try to keep playing, so I know what the whole tilt thing is about. =/ I learned something lol. Well done guys, well done.

    The article or just the sentence? I won't feel tarnished if it's the former as I'd rather have an honest opinion.

    +1, I enjoyed reading that as well. I didn't know IPL had to go through extreme measures to keep the rating up.

    Jimbo really needs to cut down on this Thick Fat before it overwhelms him...

    I liked the laddering article a lot (since I shoot for the stars). The Smog nominations (thingy) article was also a good read.
    The artwork also continues to get more and more amazing for me, and I'm glad the artists in this community have something to focus their creativity into. It makes the final product that much better.

    Perhaps the total lack of UU articles?

    Any reason for that?

    Other than that, it was quite nice.

    The tier is such a mess that many articles that would deal with UU were opted out of or altered to exclude UU.

    A great read as usual. Like a lot of people, the laddering aticle was the best part. Especially how it was written that Blissey, Forretress, Rotom-A, etc are omnipresent on IPL's teams, only for me to play him in a ladder match and he wasn't even using stall!

    Oh, and the courtroom art was brilliant.

    Keep up the good work!

    Good work! I, like everyone else, enjoyed the laddering article, and I also enjoyed the Pokemon analysis on starmie.

    Nice

    Nice work, but I found a mistake in Hail Team. Walrein has Modest nature, but if it has +Def nature, it will need 32 EV less for the same stats. Try to recalculate it.

    My favorite article from this was the laddering article since it gave me a new perspective on battling and knowing when to stop laddering if I ever want my ranking to go up.

    I love reading these, keep it up. Also is there any way I could help out in terms of editing? (my battling experience isn't godly, so I wouldn't be able to apply for anything else)
