    I don't see how its my fault that I presume you tried to play your best against both your opponents for the same tournament.

    Also, Taylor I'd say its because you're up against a german :)

    gorm, I can't really do anything there bro, i'm pretty sure people in most teams give advice like that, thats many of the people on asia for example, don't battle with their tournament team when they're battling randomly.

    UNLESS, I purposefully battle with the team I plan to use, in hopes of them thinking I wouldn't use a team that I would use in a tournament in front of them, therefore them not expecting for the team they already know, and being unprepared for that team, as opposed to another team they were hoping to have faced.

    Dun dun dun mind fucking muahahah

    ...how do you test your team then? Random shoddy ladders are the quickest way to test against a lot of people!! Having to use an alternate name is ridiculous, but it looks that is what you 'should' have done Gorm ;(

    Indeed. xd

    Other news, Michilele says she can't meet up to play one battle this entire week. Frustrating as it is, I'll just have to wait until next Sunday.

    You are very similar as Melon. A nap, who tells very much not interesting things in this topic to influence the TO xD
    Something like that is very lousy.

    You've said, that you can battle only @weekend, so that i suggested next weekend , because i cannot this weekend ;D

    Because of that I will be on the server by a consented time.


    ps: lol, Gorm xp, I think, every team on this tournament do this and it cannot be prevented. In addition, only use more than one team and you have no probs like that.

    Are you out of your fucking mind? I said I'm available whenever and everyone knows that. Preferably on the weekend, but I'm able to go out of my way to play at anytime to suit my opponent, as I'm not fussy. Please don't say anything like that.

    Let's just meet up as soon as we can, and I'm free whenever so you don't have to wait until the weekend.

    Ok, The post was a bad idea lol.
    I am sorry for the dirty guy and the other offenses, I didnt wanted to hurt you with. I was just angry because I lost to you 3 times in a row and I am a bad loser so I need another reason for my lose then my skill.
    But I am sure that other teams do some scouting aswell, or how did you find the post?...

    @Taylor: No that were other reasons, lol. I am very courios about pokemon, and I am asking a lot of other good battlers about their thinkings and stuff. Ask Aldaron, Obi, Goofball, IPL and other people if you dont trust me. The kick was due to me using an illegal moveset with Pursuit+Selfdestruct Snorlax, again ask Gouki, Antique Roadshow or IPL.

    Edit: What am i doing lol. I didnt scouted your team, as the Ladder matches us together, and as you used the same team over and over again in every match we had, I assumed you would use the same Team in the World cup. So whats exactly wrong with posting the team? >_>

    Edit2: I just remembered you posted the Team anyway... So next time I will just give the link lol

    Okay seriously i don't want all of this bullshit in here. That refers to you Michiele and you Gandalf. Gorm had a valid concern.

    I just want my match results, thanks.
