    as newly-born captain of Team USA East i'd like to give a shout-out to my mom for having brought me to this planet, my dad for helping with the process and last but not least Father God for watching over me as i was pushed out. On a concluding note, i'd like to point out that our team, team usa (B)east, will be taking the gold home thank you.


    As for the minisite, anyone interested in taking up the project from the team please send me a pm so we don't have more than one person investing meaningless time into a task already completed.

    edit: if i see no interest between now and tomorrow this time, i'll see if i can whip up some thing real quick to avoid the massive point loss

    TTS dropped out, so I'm subbing in Kira for him.

    I'll see if I can get the minisite up tomorrow. If I don't, can you please yell at me over IRC? Thanks.

    If you had mentioned this before the tournament began, I would not have signed up. I do not have the time or the knowledge to make a site.

    its not about the rule its just about putting 15 minutes of work into it really.

    it takes about 5 minutes to sign up on bravehost and there's a website builder which will take 10 minutes to atleast put something up.

    after that it doesn't matter, maybe some of your members take an interest, maybe they don't. but it should atleast be a basic page which says 'hi team asia site here, we rule, cdn sucks'. thats all im asking for reallly.

    I don't care, it wasn't there in the initial rules. You could at least have polled the idea beforehand. It's like me deciding mid-HP-mafia that everyone who does not do a short bravehost biography on why they are not mafia (it takes like 5 mins ok!!!) is going to get autolynched if I don't have a link to it soon.

    We (or rather Dak) made one anyway but it's dumb. If you want to see those so badly just make them by yourselves. You don't even seem to care if we update it.

    I thought someone said earlier you just need to have the log handy in case of a conflict, but

    Won my first match with gr33n 3-0.

    TTS was replaced with Kira I believe, so I'll have to battle him next, and can't do Jackal until after the 18th it seems.

    I battled with Balb today.

    The match was 5-3 ( I had five pokemon left and he had 3 left)... then shoddy disconnected everyone. Balb said on irc that I could have the won though the match was in my favor and I have the log if anyone wants it.

    Don't sweat it massi4h, Jirachi268 is undefeated in your division, so you're not alone!

    Don't let that put you off your future battles. :)
