    What kind of team would you recommend for someone completely new to GSC? And what would you steer away from (until you have more experience)?

    Are their any other items besides leftovers that are viable on certain pokemon or sets? (Besides Thick Club on Marowak)

    Ah, right. I forgot Skype is an utter piece of shit program and, for some unfathomable reason, does not recognize my microphone unlike literally all other software.

    Sorry I can't meaningfully participate after all.

    Just finished watching the cast. It was fantastic hopefully the old gen tournaments will get some attention and attract new players. Sorry about your mic Mr. E hopefully you guys can test this stuff before you go live.

    Hopefully we could fulfill some exspectations, maybe we rambled a bit but bear with it were all grandpas and grandpas do that alot.
    If we work out some kinks stuff could get even better. ;)

    Nah, it's nothing to do with testing. I've known about the problem with Skype in the past and forgotten about it since I so rarely use it. (Part of which is because it doesn't pick up my mic...) We were discussing moving to Google Talk briefly but that would've just made it take longer to get the stream started; if we used any other VOIP program I could also participate but Skype has video, which I imagine is highly appreciated when you're streaming (and not just like a podcast or something).

    There's nothing more for me to do on my end. My mic works, maybe it's not high-quality but what do I care. All other applications pick it up. Skype's just a POS. Apparently it's quite a common problem too and Micro$hit just has never bothered to fix it.

    Great cast. I enjoyed what I heard, but I was kinda multitasking and not paying attention, so I'll probably re-watch it soon.

    If there was anything to complain about though, it was that you dug way too deep, way too fast. For a new player, I think it would relatively hard to follow. You should maybe have answered some simple questions, that the newer players might wonder about, like "why are the electrics so good", "how important are spikes", "why isnt borat playing in spl" or something along those lines. But I guess that's what you have guides and threads for (pointing specifically on this one https://www.smogon.com/smog/issue28/gsc, great read, recommended).

    also for borat, try not to interrupt the others as frequently if you do this again

    i had a blast watching (and thanks for answering my questions!), so hopefully this will happen again, maybe for RBY or ADV next time?
