    Damn, 3-way-tie in my division, all because I misplayed the last move of my match -__-

    I was set to play Sebastian when he sent me a message about 30 minutes ago, and I returned to see the message relatively soon after he sent it. But he has not replied to my response, nor has he on the Smogon server. I will be on tommorow; however, for the remainder of today, I will be watching two films back-to-back and will have no internet access throughout that time. Hopefully he will be available tommorow.

    what would be counter intuitive would be rewarding people for not completing their battles..

    Man, if you dont want to battle dont sign up for tournaments..

    Have a nice day.

    I defeated Bosgoed 3-0, gg.

    Edit: I should point out, of course, that it was a lot closer to that, as the game really came down to the last turn.

    Finally put my real life shit behind me and beat Kevin Garrett 2-0 in a good clean game that really went down to the wire.

    Ok that means I finish 2-1 equal with DL and Pirika (who I assume takes Mosh's loss). I could have potentially gone 3-0 if I was thinking straight but thats pokemon and Pirika really did play well.

    Cmon fellow Oceanians, lets do this!

    So DL, MS and me are tied with 2-1. The points will be distributed? Or there will be some kind of tiebreak?

    Seeing as Mosh lost to DL in your stead, I beat DL and I lost to you, there is no current way to break ties anyway. I think we just split the points.

    The points will be divided equally, ie. the 3 of you will all get 4 points each (equal to the points you get for getting 2nd).

    Good job MS! I've only heard parts of what's happening irl with you, but either way I'm proud that you can stay strong! 2nd isn't half bad (or I would be dissing myself :P).

    Yes, and there is no tie-break system in this round. If you have the same record as others in your pairing, you split the points. In this case, there is a three way tie for first, meaning 6+4+2 points are divided among 3 people. Thats 4 points for you each.

    Australians seem to be complaining a lot lately. It would be nice if they could back it up with some wins!

    I spent a few hours on all the relavent IRC channels and Smogon University Server Thursday, basically all of Friday, and will spend all of today on them as well. So hopefully I'll catch some of my opponent's today as they weren't on / didn't contact me if they saw me the past two days.

    We are fine in the win department despite some of us experiencing some bad luck. Don't worry about us, worry about making sure you personally get some wins of your own Ace.
