PLAYTESTING INTRODUCTION This thread marks the beginning of the fifth period of playtesting for the first six CAPs (Syclant, Revenankh, Pyroak, Fidgit, Stratagem, Arghonaut). The Stratagem Playtesting ladder will replace the Fidgit Playtest ladder for the next 10 days, allowing us to test Stratagem in isolation against the Platinum OU environment. Ladder ratings will NOT be reset. Here are the current standings (from the very start of the Stratagem test): Playtest Leaderboard ------------------------------------------- 1. SNUBBULLSHIT (1,788.60) 2. SNUBBULL (1,650.20) SO CUTE 3. MOBIUS. (1,628.18) 4. FUZZNIP (1620.21) 5. HAX IS BAD (1,550.19) 6. BEEJ (1,538.77) 7. BOBTHEBALL4 (1,533.34) 8. ELEVATOR MUSIC (1,530.15) 9.

CLOUDY DAY BLUES (1,474.52) Don't be intimidated by these numbers, though. If you know OU, and you are willing to experiment with Stratagem -- then you should do just fine. This thread will serve as home base for sharing playtesting information about Stratagem. Post comments, advice, movesets, strategies, etc. If you post long battle logs and or teams, please enclose them in CODE tags as not to scroll the page. We encourage people to post their teams here, for those that don't want to make full RMTs. Just a couple of sentences per Pokemon will do fine, explaining what it does for the team and why you chose it. Nothing fancy is required. At the end of the playtesting period (August 29th), the most proficient battlers on the Playtesting ladder will be awarded with Custom Titles to represent their achievements. Remember to stay active throughout the majority of the playtesting period, not just at the end. The method of selecting those who qualify for the CT has not been decided yet; however, EXP with the CAPs could be a major factor. At the end of each CAP's playtesting period, a thread will be posted where an analysis will be drafted based off experiences with the CAP. CAP9 will be started as soon as possible, please don't ask about it.
