    USA West (1) vs. Asia (4)

    scofield v. Veteran In Love - I kind of hope scofield gets steamrolled, but really I don't know anything about him.
    Warthog v. Lady Bug - Lady bug is p. good
    SoT v. husk - happened
    Duskiev. imperfectluck - see above
    LoveDestiny v. Stalefish - This is interesting... I think LD has the edge
    TAY v. itachi109 - TAY !
    Philip7086 v. Sarenji - Sarenji is a lot stronger than some people think!
    romeojustdie v. Magmortified - dunno

    I think with this, Duskie and SoT were two of West's hard hitters, and since they lost... it'll be difficult for them to defeat the snarling beast that is asia.

    Oceania (6) vs. USA Metro (7)

    Antique Roadshow v. reachzero - two very quality players. Hopefully reach can win!
    MS v. Kevin Garrett - revenge!
    Earthworm v. Reverb - Earthworm is one of the best players but I think Reverb can come up with some tricks
    animenagai v. august - I haven't heard much from animenagai - except he stalls his matches ;) - august on the other hand is very powerful
    Blue Kirby v. OGBallin - Blue Kirby is a really good player but so is OG yea!
    Junior v. Jimbo - juniro... oh no
    panamaxis v. Twist of Fate - ToF needs to get his spirits up and win
    Hipmonlee v. JabbaTheGriffin - Jabs my boy ^__^

    I think the winner of Metro v. Oceania wins the tournament. Obviously they're the best teams ^__^;;

    lol now I'm known as the guy that stalls matches and can't win against august :/

    August is a tough opponent though. I'll do my best. Good luck everybody.

    PM'ed VIL.

    Also, requesting EW next round, he asked for some "evidence" and I'd be glad to show him! (but way to back down and edit your post, lol =( )

    Yeah, it would be a counter team.. if Scofield had used a team that differed at all from the one he used in all 3 of the preliminary rounds.

    Edit: Nice job Scoffie, let the sweep begin.

    if any of you knew the extent of my knowledge in dp, you'd know i go by opinions i trust:

    [01:11:30] <+Gouki> heh vil got counter teamed

    now if those people magically change those opinions 5 minutes later, i can't really help it:

    [01:19:15] <+Gouki> yeah it wasnt a counter team shiv

    and as i said on irc:

    [01:19:20] <+Gouki> he didnt end up changing anything
    [01:19:39] <Scofield> yeah, id think the tournament director wouldnt be so bitter
    [01:19:48] <~Shiv> im just kidding man
    [01:19:53] <~Shiv> why do you have to take shit personally
    [01:19:54] <~Shiv> lol
    [01:20:10] <~VIL> yea man, you won str8 up
    [01:20:16] <~Shiv> i can rephrase that to 'metagamed' if you want
    [01:20:17] <~Shiv> lol
    [01:20:19] <~VIL> i had my chances to win it but didn't capitalize

    so yeah, stop the whining ^_^

    It was nothing personal Shiv. I'm sure you would have defended your teammate as well if someone tarnished their win by calling counter-team. Nothing against you or anything, just wanted to clear Scofield's name, since he's already taken a lot of heat in the WC topics.

    sounded pretty personal to me.

    also from what i hear, west supposedly sat down and theorymon'ed vil's team last night. they even came up with the idea to add a rock polish rhyperior to scofield's team. i don't think he ended up doing but still, shows the intent :)

    And Vil didn't get counter teamed at all, so i don't see the need to even bring up what allegedly happened in our channel.

    Aren't tournament directors not supposed to start things?

    So yeah, I'll waste my 500th post on this crap.

    We discussed VIL last night yes, but not in any capacity that gave me an unfair advantage. I asked, "what type of teams do VIL tend to use"? A perfectly valid question, if VIL had asked anyone the same about me, the response would've been "balanced bulky teams". Someone said "a parahax team". From there, we discussed things commonly seen on such teams, jirachi, machamp, paralyzers, etc. Another westerner had battled VIL and asked if I wanted to see the log, something which I refused. TBH I didn't pay that much attention to this, I had already decided on a team and only ever made 1 item change before the match, something I did while I was still in Ireland (ie before R3 came up). I had decided that my team can handle anything he threw at me, whether he used that team or another. I made no significant changes to the team, and hardly knew anything about his besides a basic strategy.

    The rock polish rhyperior thing is also way off base. It was suggested to me in passing this morning like 20 min before the match, something that I never really considered. Why on earth would I mess with my team now after all the testing I did? I didn't even consider it, as I was going to stick to my guns. What intent does that show? I've suggested much worse in West IRC before, hell, I've suggested murder in the chat a few times....

    Honestly, ultimately, no one else in the west was playing that match, it was me, I was unaware of VIL's team, I used the team I used the whole tournament, and I really don't appreciate you trying to take anything away from me, or west as a whole. I mean, this whole thing was settled, VIL and I agreed it was a good match, I don't even see any reason why you had to take this further.

    And before anyone says anything about me taking things too seriously, this is me trying to keep under control, let's not escalate things any further.

    EDIT: Phil probably thought I wasn't there because I wasn't paying attention and didn't say anything lol

    and maybe you guys talked about it more after I left so yeah

    Yeah, they did most of their discussion after I went to bed, so I wasn't even there for that, and never even saw the convo...

    hahah, hell yeah we did. VIL's team is scary. But Scofield wasn't even on last night when we were theorymoning VIL's team. Also, I was just speaking for myself when I said it was nothing personal, lol.

    Edit: nvm, I could've sworn Scofield wasn't even there when we were talking about VIL's team. I'm positive he wasn't there, at least, later on when we talked about what could counter VIL's team. Anyways, I don't see what's wrong with that at all, especially considering the fact that Scofield just stuck with his guns. No need to take this discussion any further.

    Edit again: I really gotta refresh pages before I post in the future, lol. I started this post, then half way through, I started a test match w/ my friend. After that, I finished up and then posted, only to find that two more posts were made in that time span, rofl.
