    I did ask a few people on shoddy.... anyway maybe we dont have a scouter. Still, does he not speak english? Otherwise why the hell wouldn't he tell us who he was, or leave the 5 million times I asked him?

    Thanks for the compliment! Ah, I used a different team on this round, the one I used on our battle was something MoP helped me piece together, while this round's was a new team that I'm trying to get used to. My old one had more raw power I'd say, while the new one lets me practice on my strategy. I WAS considering which one to use, but I went with my newer team because I wanted to see how I can work on my team-building & strategy. Also, L was really good too :D

    Well AznGook and I were about to battle but Shoddy is lagging. Reconnecting is a 10 minute process...

    edit: I'm really arrogant.
    Lost 1-0

    Won it 1-0. I'm still not happy with how I battled, maybe I should ask husk to extend his time with me.

    See same thing happened to Ghandi after he beat me. He changed his team and lost too.
    I just hope not to draw you in the next round again if they are dropping losers from the winners bracket into the losers bracket. Couldn't face losing again.

    Wait, am I to understand that now it's single elim with 2 brackets? Doesn't seem all that fair to people who won Rd 1 but lost Rd 2.... Why should they not be given two chances too?

    Exactly, I hate the idea of a losers bracket...basically gives all the first round people a chance to win the entire thing. Just let it go single elimination to the end so that there is a concrete winner.

    Sikh.

    First you implement the Losers bracket, which IMO I didn't see the person who won the losers bracket winning the whole thing but rather being the best loser.

    Then you remove it after some people have completly reworked a new team for it?

    Also, stop changing the dates on everything, People can't be that flexible
