    the recently regenerated smogoff / firebot sequel has been populated in its early days by many tier ranking threads. as a collection of mostly 16-25 yo mostly men who mostly are lazy degenerates, it seemed inevitable that we would have one rating and organizing what we all have in common: fast...

    SM LC Blue Chips

    Hey y'all, it's Shrug. Thanks to an improbable series of events, I have a trophy now, which is pretty cool. I'm a dumbass sentimental traditionalist, at least in matters of minimal import, so I decided to type up an RMT as a formal farewell to snake and the metagame we're about to depart. This...

    Resource LC Championships Replay Thread

    I figured it would be cool to have a place to compile the replays from the lc championship tour, given it's a relatively big lc event and all. Here you can browse replays from each round, picked from the tour thread, sans win / loss context (to preserve the suspence o_0). Round 1 Replays...

    Resource LC Team Swap

    approved by Mambo INTRO The Team Shop thread, while very useful and cool and good, has died down recently. This is understandable - the "employees" are busy both on smogon and in real life, meaning the demand for teams far outstrips the resources to make them. Which, again, is a common fate...

    Project King of the (Little) Hill

    approved by resurrected mod QuoteCS LC King of the Hill In actual life, I play lacrosse. One common drill I do as a faceoff guy is “King of the Hill” - two people face off, and the winner stays to go again vs. someone else. This project is the LC version of that - King of the Little...

    Serious Indiana RFRA

    I'm not likely to be discriminated against because of this law, so I might be the wrong person to be aggrieved, but this shit is ridiculous. In essence, Indiana contrived (and passed) a law affording corporations, for-profit and otherwise, the right to claim religious freedom against...
