This summed it up very nicely, excellent job!
Brilliant warstory. One for the archive.
9.5 / 10
Both players showed some excellent prediction skill, I give the slight edge to Syl in that department, but Rey won (sort of) and that's what counts.
Warstories are always better with both players comments.
That was probably the best warstory I've read here. Both sides played very well, I enjoyed seeing teams without Scizor or Latias (JACKPOT!), and the commentary was interesting. Great job guys. Syl, Agility Gliscor came completely out of left field, I didn't see that coming at all.
Nice battle and I enjoyed your thought processes.
Great battle, great commentary, great finish, great warstory.
I really enjoy reading 2 people commentary war stories =). Brilliant and very entertaining. ^^
Very good match, left me wondering how the hell rey was going to come back from 3-6 down. Double commentary is always a nice touch too.
As expected,This is an excellent warstory.The commetary was flawless and the battle was superb.It also had some good laughs(lol Sweeping Agility Gliscor)
10/10 Archive for sure
Nice Warstory. I enjoyed it. The random cussing didn't bother me as it kind of even more in depth look at what you were thinking.
is all I can say. Fantastic warstory guys, hope to see it in the archive soon.
This was a great warstory, 5* for sure =)
Wonderful warstory. Brilliant prediction from both sides along with an unorthodox team made it a very memorable battle. Also enjoyed double commentary (I love watching Rey squirm). One thing that is bugging me though:
Why didn't you use Charge Beam on the 28% HP Magnezone? Even if that didn't kill, an HP Ice Magnezone wouldn't have OHKOed max HP Jolteon. You could have had 2 chances to get the boost and then OHKO his Salamence with Thunderbolt.
I'm assuming because...
He also knew that rey's last Pokemon was Salamence (and probably a DD one considering the stage of the game), so if Salamence was the standard Naughty/Naive DDMence then LO Thunderbolt would have OHKO'd on average after Stealth Rock anyway. Unfortunately for Syl, it was a bulkier version. I'd probably have done the same, but it didn't pay off for him on this occassion.
(did your zone have explosion, rey? oh and even though you put it down as a draw you would have still been able to win outright if your Mence DD'd on Jolteon then Roosted to buy a resistance before finishing with EQ)
sweet battle rey, this battle had me hooked! I never thought i'd see ice fang, (heck not even agility) on a gliscor! Really creative, Syl! I love warstories and this is one done right! Keep battles like this coming!
Epic battle, GREAT commentary (really hooked me), two steels, and no Latias/Rotom/even SCIZOR? Smells like a 10/10 to me.
Nice warstory, it was a very excellent read! Props to Syl and his LO Agility Gliscor! xD
Hi all, I'm kind of new here but I've been playing on Shoddy for a while. Thanks for all your posts about this warstory. Answering some of them :
I agree with you. I was trying to put a lot of pressure on Rey and to stop giving him free turns. But DDancing was very risky and not quite rewarding enough if it didn't allow me to at least kill Starmie. The standard spinner would have indeed survived a +1 SE. Fortunately, Rey's Starmie was running a less bulky spread.
Rey made the right assumption here since my Gyara was running just enough speed to be faster than max speed Starmie at +1.
I consider bluffing as part of the game really, whether via talking or playing. It just adds another dimension to it.
SR wasn't such an obvious play. I was hoping that the threat of Trick/Fire attack was enough to make Rey attack and kill Azelf, or even switch. I really wanted SR to go up but it was late game and there was no way for Rey to assume I was crazy enough to let him get a free Sub+a free attack (since Azelf was scarfed). Again, it was very risky on my part and had I thought longer I'm not sure I'd have made that choice.
10/10 with good commentary and gripping play. I'm looking forward to the rematch. :)
Another one for the archive? xD Good job, guys!
I thought the real triumph of the story was Syl's team, I thought it was amazingly well put together, and Rey's matched up perfectly in quality.
And somebody else has put HP Fighting on Jolteon to kill Tyranitar! This must be done more often, I tried it on a team back in November to somewhat hilarious results XD
Last Comment, a bit of dirty playing from Rey at the end there :o but I guess psychology is something that the Shoddy Battle chat window does allow for...
Really an epic match. I was hooked from the beginning. Syl had a really nice team too, but you both played very well.
Syl's unorthodox team was very nice and this battled shows how big his balls are with some of the moves he made.
DD'ing with Gyarados while Starmie is in play? Insane.
When it was infernape vs. salamence, why didn't you use fire blast? because of blaze and stab and intimadate, it would have done more damage than stone edge, plus could have hit any switch hard.
But aside fromt hat one mistake that would have won you the game, great warstory, and I loved the unorthadox team.
What I don't get is why Syl used Agility when the game was already his. If he EQd Rey had to bring in Mence or die. Mence can't really deal with Gliscor, as if it's MixMence it loses 10% to Life Orb, same procedure with DDMence, who can't Roost up against Life Orb'ed Ice Fangs. 10% would have been enough for Jolteon. But I dont wanna appear nitpicky :x Generally it was a great battle and a really enjoyable read, thanks guys ^_~
