The calc takes in the base stat, and then calculates the sats. Ofc, some people add things like this manually.

And what's broke this time? >_>


Yep, that tasted purple!

I'll try reffing. I need to waste more time on the internets :)

Times: much of the weekend and 8:00 and later on weeknights, most of the time. Can't say I'll be very consistent, but I'll be on a lot and will try to be on at least every day.

Just for fun, a record of how far challenges tend to get:

1 Battle: 11 Challenges
2 Battles: 6 Challenges
3 Battles: 4 Challenges
4 Battles: 1 Challenge
5 Battles: 2 Challenges
6 Battles: 1 Challenge
7 Battles: 2 Challenges
8 Battles: 1 Challenge
13 Battles: 1 Challenge

Total: 29 Challenges
I'll toss my hat into the ring for this as well. As a DM for my local DnD group,I'm adept at weaving battles and believe I can handle all this damage calculator mumbo jumbo.

Availability: varies. Sorry, can't pinpoint. But I'm usually on once a day,no matter what.

Current Ref Tokens:0
Total Ref Tokens to date: 7
I'll go referee for a bit, see if I'm any good at it. We need more refs regardless.

This is when I'm most comfortable reffing matches. I can be found nearly always online daily.
Weekdays: 15:00 - 22:00 GMT, can usually be found earlier or later depending on sleeping schedule.
Weekends: 19:00 - 22:00 GMT, I'm far busier on weekends but will usually get some time to at least update.

(no current matches)
I have a very serious question(and pardon me if I sound like a moron):
When someone attempts to use a move to dodge(i.e. Agility,Quick attack), is there an equation or value ,OR do I just use my Ref's judgement on physics to determine the amount of damage a pokemon would take? Because I'm starting to ref and just want to know.

As far as I know, it's just ref's judgement.


It's all coming back to me now

haha I thought i had already posted here. Guess the post never went through.

Anyway its obvious that we need refs so ill throw my name in the ring

Look im online pretty much all the time from 10AM-11PM (+13) GMT. On weekdays there may be a few days where ill have a lecture during those times but im pretty active on the site regardless.

Battles: (I have subbed in for Chomper)
and I am doing Acklows multi double battle
BTW, reffing issue:

Does the movespam penalty apply across rounds? If I were to use Rock Slide the last turn of one round, then use it three times on the next, would the costs be 6+previous attacks in Round X, then 10, 14, 18 energy for the attacks in Round Y? Or does the movespam penalty reset after each round? (6 in round X, then 6, 10, 14 for the attacks in round Y.)

I've come into such a circumstance. While I've already made the call as being "it resets," I want to make sure on that.
Hey i heard that a lot of refs are on IRC and i was wondering if i could get a link to the IRC downloader or something because im not sure to go about finding you guys on there.

Thanks,both of you,Gentlemen.

Good morning, you bastards!

If you have a Mac, you can download Colloquy and that works too. Go here and click through the three tutorials to find the one that matches your computer.
Quick question about a match I'm reffing -- how do Accuracy drops factor into calculations? In other words, how do they factor into the base accuracy of a move, and how would you then go about calculating the hit chance after factoring in the drops? The specific move in the match is Sand Attack, if that helps.
Time to shamelessly steal Acklow's format. :heart:


After reading what the ASB is all about, I knew that it'd be an excellent outlet for me to exercise my unused writing abilities. Finally feels like there was an actual purpose to watching all those countless hours of pokemon. Not afraid of complex battles, bring 'em on. Just VM if you need a ref.

Starting on March 13th after I fly back home, my access to the internet and free time will be back to normal, high-activity levels. Generally available 4pm-4am PST (GMT-8) as a baseline, but it's quite possible to catch me online at any hour of the day, except typical Saturdays.

Reffing Style:
First things first, the more work you put into your moves and arena, the more content I can deliver. Do not be afraid to try new things within reasonable limitations of actions/moves/physics and I will make it my duty to flesh it out in spectacular fashion.

Current Battles:
Electric Cavern Double Dash (4vs4 Tag)

Past Battles:

Dear oh dear, I forgot about this. D: I too would like to apply.

General availability: At the moment it is fairly high, and I get on at least once a day if nothing else... Though I am looking for a job so that may well change soon. I will edit this should that be the case, but for now, I'm available at least once daily.

Reffing style: My first idea was to do like the Pokemon Stadium announcer guy with comments and whatnot. >w< However given how little he actually says (despite talking so much) I probably will not, but we'll see. I do my best to pay attention to all encompassing factors in a battle, and I have a basic-enough knowledge of physics as should be necessary for the position.... though above all else, I will probably encourage creativity and thinking outside the box more than anything, and will reward those who do so.

Ref Counters: 0
Total Acc. RC: 0

Er, anything else?
