    This should be fun, NU should be great but I should probably learn the other tiers, whatever 9.9

    no, animenagai, no. fuk ou

    i suggest we really do it like the tennis Open. Have four brackets for each Open, amd the best players of each bracket compete with one another in the semi

    I like the idea but how would you seed the individual players, would it be based on your rating in the tierat the time of the sign-ups for each open or would it be based on performances in other tourneys for that tier?

    "Let's add OU to the VGC tournament to attract more people."

    I think you're sort of missing the point here.

    As a singles overused-centric player with neither the knowledge of any of Smogon's other custom metagames nor the capacity to learn them, I find the idea of this tournament outrageous. Is this a joke? Another bad iconic thread as usual.
