  1. Media Videogame thread

    Has anyone here played Crypt of the Necrodancer? It's a "roguelike" with a rhythm-based element: you have to move to the beat of the background song. I say "roguelike" because it's not super rich in grinding/loot-finding, etc.--the mechanics are extremely simplified because it's designed to be...

  3. Applying to college

    My resume looked a lot like yours in high school, and one of the Ivies you listed took me. Do make sure that your essays are solid, and you'll really have no need to worry. Mine was on how my interpretation of the word "love" changed as I grew older. My biggest advice to you, however, (and this...
  4. Prismata

    Yeah, it's really cool. And a lot of popular Hearthstone streamers (Trump, reynad, Kripp, Kolento, sjow, etc.) played it recently in a dev-sponsored tournament. Kolento won it and continues to play it in his offtime. Here's Kripp talking about the game.
  5. Prismata

    hey look it's another kickstarter game that no one's ever going to play Kickstarter YouTube Blog InfoDoc Reddit Game itself (although you can't play it unless you have a key) This one has a couple of interesting stories behind it, though. The developers have been working on this for years...
  6. Old Name and Profile Change Requests

    I'd like my name changed to Platyp. It's the handle I'm adopting everywhere I frequent on the internet (including, and probably most relevantly, in #pokemon), so I'd like to use it here, too. k - oglemi
  7. Suggestions

    I've always liked watching high level matches, but they're often difficult to find. One thing that would be nice is to be able to see the player ratings next to the player names in the "Watch a battle" screen. Also, being able to sort the battles by rating (i.e. sort by the higher-rated player...
  8. Ask a Simple Question, Get a Simple Answer, C&C Edition

    Is there a thread that explains the rationale behind changing the smogon dex to the new format? I'd like to know why things such as the Pokemon overview, other options, and counters sections were removed from the analyses.

    What does "np:" stand for in the np threads and why is it there?
  10. Issue #35 Released!

    I've noticed this with pretty much every issue of the Smog... why don't you guys ever link to the actual homepage of the issue in the announcement post? Obviously I can get to it by clicking on one of the linked articles and then the home page or clicking on the Smog link and then the issue, but...
  11. UU Simple Questions Thread

    What are "leaderboard points?" This keeps showing up in various seemingly unrelated threads (dark horse, victim, etc.)
  12. Pokémon Venusaur

    No point in running Leech Seed if you're trying to force a lot of switches. Swap it out for Synthesis for longevity.
  13. Other Battle of the Week: Week 6

    Would it be possible to remove the bold from the winners, or at least put it in a spoiler tag? It's kind of difficult to "enjoy" these matches when you already know the outcome. =(
  14. Pokémon Mawile

    Read this thread. And this thread. Mawile is at #22 with a usage of 9.68%, so it is OU. Pokemon and their Mega-Evolutions are not tiered separately. You should think of the Lucarionite ban being more like the Soul Dew ban on the Latis in the previous generations than like a ban on an individual...

    In PS!, Knock Off removes Weakness Policy before it activates. Is this correct behavior?
