I really appreciated your latest post in the RBY thread. I do monte carlos for a living and recently had a consultant ask me that same question. My answer was basically the same. It's easier to run 500 simulations than analyze a multiple feedback circuit by hand and sorting through the Laplace. Let the bell curves speak for themselves, to hell with differential equations and stochastics.
Yo, I'm just some random who wants to say that I disagree with your premise in this post that the hax factor is more impactful in good vs bad or great vs bad than in great vs good. I believe the rng plays a stronger role in determining the results of a match when the skill gap between two players is smaller.
Hi, we play for the ADV seasonal R2. I'm GMT-5 and seeing your timezone this will get difficult. My Sunday night is the most likely time for me, thinking anywhere in the range of 7 to 10 PM. This *should* be 2-5 PM the next for you if I'm getting it right. Does that work? Lmk ASAP when you can fight.
adv seasonal, im gmt-5. can do weekdays after 5pm my time with exception to Monday (today) and Wednesday. Weekends only work for me after 8pm my time. Ophion#1275 on discord to make the rest of scheduling easier if u use discord
For your RBY Counter thread, what about if a Pokemon is hit with Disable on a Counter-able move they used while going first?
P1 uses Seismic Toss, then P2 uses Disable.
P1 uses Whirlwind (which means they will go second), while Player 2 uses Counter. Does Player 2 succeed?
