    Just saying... whoever is picked as the Arena Tycoon better be the best. I held the best record in that slot.... well, forever.

    Does having the slot mean you only get battled if you've beaten everyone else? I think the best battler for the slot would be the best in any slot unless it works differently than I thought it did. (It probably does)

    I would be willing to take any open spot, (although I'm not a shoddy battle moderator obviously).

    My CRE is 1692 at this current time.

    I'll take any open slot, though I tend to battle stupidly on my main account, and as such my CRE is pretty, well... not all that good.

    I was Stage Madonna last time, so I'm applying again. Give me a cool title this time though please.

    My CRE sits around the 1500 range at the moment, as I haven't laddered standard continuously for quite some time.

    I'll take Jump's spot as randbatter, that seems fun enough, and I'm active a lot.

    Jimbo is going to take Jumpman's place. He's been asking me for months and I must admit he is really good (lucky :/) at them. I'll leave this open for a day or two more to make sure everyone has had a chance to see the thread. I have most of the spots figured out. I'll send Aeolus a list in a few days for him to approve it.

    I'll take any open position as well. It turns out the one month deadline works perfectly with the frontier starting on July 12th. My leave is a month long and starts July 11th. Thus, I will be highly active. I don't have a rating at this time, but I'm sure a lot of people here could be referenced for questions about my skill level.

    EDIT: Referenced my records (yes I keep track I am a ladder whore). Over Spring break I was able to get to a CRE of 1584 (the 26th of March) before I had to go back. I've battled since then as well, but not to get to high CREs. I'm ready to go all out for this.

    Factory Foreman Gouki
    Arcade Star Jimbo
    Castle Valet Blue Kirby

    I can't be a brain, unfortunately, for the same reason I backed out of world cup. I dont really have the time to play pokemon right now (having to start a real life sucks) and there is no way I could devote any time to playing this.

    My dad has just booked a holiday for July 13th - July 24th which obviously clashes with this quite badly. For that reason I am going to have to pull out, apologies.
