The Strawberry Sneasels (3.5) vs. The Kinglax (4.5)
SM: Meru vs. Erzengel - i played erz so i now know he's good, meru's obviously a good player too but i feel erz is more invested in the tier so that gives him the edge
SM: Shiba vs. Sam I Yam - sorry still don't know you
SM: Eternal Spirit vs. TDK
SM: Poek vs. Arifeen - all you gotta do is stay in constantly because feen will absolutely try to make a play every time, it's not hard
ORAS: Melle2402 vs. J0RIS - don't know either player very well but both have proven to be assets to their teams, giving the edge to melle but could go either way
ORAS: Natalie. vs. Lax
BW: Chill Shadow vs. Kushalos - i would rather put kush in oras but o well he'll still perform here
BW: r0ady vs. passion - PASSION!! :}

sorry for being a meanie to you guys kinglax, you're actually not all that awful

Its hard to say the game was 100% won when i still had 4 Pokemon left. J0ris could choke or i could hax him, like he did before which brought me in this bad spot.
Heres a reason why the match wasnt 100% won:
The opposing Diancie used Diamond Storm!
It's super effective! Golbat lost 64.6% of its health!
The opposing Diancie's Defense rose!
0 Atk Diancie Diamond Storm vs. 252 HP / 0 Def Eviolite Golbat: 194-230 (54.8 - 64.9%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
golbat was at 71%, braviary was inside vs seismitoad
+1 0 Atk Braviary Brave Bird vs. 252 HP / 0 Def Eviolite Golbat: 207-244 (58.4 - 68.9%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
+1 0 Atk Braviary Brave Bird vs. 252 HP / 0 Def Eviolite Golbat on a critical hit: 310-366 (87.5 - 103.3%) -- 25% chance to OHKO

So theres for example a chance that i crit golbat which would let me win the match i think

always hate doing this cause i like getting to actually play pokemon but i'm going to have to call activity vs shiba. i attempted to schedule for earlier in the week (don't have proof of this, but it was in the uu room) but he wanted to wait until weekend. we set and both confirmed a time for 10AM - 12 PM my time today. I messaged him at 10:03AM on smogon and even tracked down his discord to reach out to him on there but he hasn't showed. i planned my day around being able to play in the AM, so i won't be able to play later today and will be traveling all day tomorrow.

Edit - nvm I goofed lol. Fuck daylight savings time

Obviously, no one sends teams in RUPL so...
J0RIS did in fact time out. The only way he can receive the win is if the win was in fact 100%. Melle's Braviary was Sub Bulk up, which I can say with relative certainty based on metagame knowledge + his telling me. I suppose I should get Zarel to verify...god knows how long this will take though. If it is not Sub Bulk Up, Melle will be disqualified for lying.

Anyway, unfortunately for J0RIS, I do not see how this game was a 100% win. Braviary could easily win through a combination of crits + dodges (Toxic is only 90%, so for the purpose of this exercise, we assume it misses). Because of this, it is impossible to give J0RIS the win. Therefore, Melle2402 receives the DQ /Timeout victory. I suppose if you live in a 3rd world country, sending your team is wise.

Ok, I forgot about the Toxic being unable to miss when Poison-types use it mechanic; I thought that was Gen 7 for some reason. Regardless, Diancie being able to break the sub is irrelevant because that Pokemon can miss both Toxic and Diamond Storm and theoretically just end up as a set up fodder. Which means...the only way for J0RIS to win is if Golbat is in fact faster than the Braviary. This poses a problem because there is no way to verify the EV spreads...do I really have to get Zarel involved for fucking rupl omg
 
#20
My Braviary had the standard ev spread, which means it had 88 evs. Even if you are faster its not a guaranteed win. I really dont see how someone can say i lost this 100%. I dont see a reason to give him the win.
E: fuck it, i want the win

i LOVE people who take wins by discussing shit omfg

What the fuck happened to playing for FUN and not taking wins by alienating the timers purpose which is stopping players from taking too long when you have limited time. This is RUPL, you're not gonna get famous for spouting "LOL XD I WIN BC I TIMER MY OPPS"
Would you yourself like to get eliminated out of the tournament or have more losses in your stats because of something like that?

You're literally only creating anger and sadness, the saying "do not do to others what you would not want them to do to you" doesn't exist without a reason, you imbeciles
