    Ok since I have nothing better to do...


    • Primary Shoddy Account Username: shrang
    • Standard Ladder Rating: 1557 (CRE 1368) - Got up to around 1450 about two weeks ago, and haven't played much since
    • Standard Ladder Deviation: 47
    • Suspect Ladder Rating: 1602 (CRE 1285)
    • Suspect Ladder Deviation: 79 - Haven't played that much on here because frankly, I hated the Suspect Ladder
    • Tournament Presence: None
    • Optional short paragraph:
    While I'm nowhere near a "fantastic player", I have been quite active in the Suspect test process since Stage 3-2, voting in every stage apart from 3-5 (Because I voted in Stage 3-3 and 3-4). I've also voted in the latest UU Suspect Test, so I know what happens to metagames when we ban Pokemon or not, and have a good idea what Pokemon are considered broken and what are not. While I am quite an average player (probably slightly above average), I make up for this for by pro-actively arguing on the forums, getting my point across and correcting misconceptions others may have. I think I'm probably one of the most active debaters on the "Salamence Council" thread. I have used Salamence and played against it. Whatever the outcome, picked for the Council or not, I am grateful for the staff at Smogon to have given me this opportunity to voice my opinion.

    Primary Shoddy Account Username: jingle bells (Suspect), Ciele (Standard)
    Standard Ladder Rating: 1788.5
    Standard Ladder Deviation: 71.5
    Suspect Ladder Rating: 1766
    Suspect Ladder Deviation: 63

    I cannot provide screenshots, but these ratings are accurate as I post this.

    Tournament Presence: My only real tournament presence this year is playing with te Alpha Ruiners in SPL with my current record standing at 5-0: http://www.smogon.com/forums/showthread.php?t=72626

    Short Paragraph: Although I have little tournament experience, I have laddered consistently and successfully all this year up until the last couple of weeks, and I feel that I have a good understanding of the metagame from this. I was more importantly of course, a frequent player of the Suspect metagame as well until recently, peaking at #2 on the leaderboard.
