I refuse to believe 5 people that actually play 1v1 read this from start to finish without once thinking "maybe this isn't right"
 

Lkjc

Formerly Lkjchjdhbjidcgjhd
Due to recent backlash, I will be reforming the Player Rankings. This is the final draft, I won’t change anything beyond this point.

Kaif, dom, DannyDoritos

Everyone else

If you don’t like your ranking in this, talk to someone else.
:blobthumbsup:
 

Cantius

I COULD BE BANNED!
Here are my own non-meme rankings:

Zarel because he will globally ban your opponents and farm act wins for your entire team
Lkjc because he makes very good player rankings
Kid A, Scrappie, Suspect Philosophy, and TIBot because they're all intimidating
I'm too lazy to fill this out
same
everyone else

sohoodbruh
DEG
187 Fan
Betathunder
OM

nobody really mains bw, refer to generalists instead

DJ Breloominati - Signed up for dpp only so-

people who are threats and/or provide support in multiple generations, or are the type of player to be given teams and do well

ggopw - while mainly prevalent in SM, has still shown to be competent in ORAS and is getting there in SS
Squirtell 1v1 - achieved similar SM results to ggopw in less time while only really using one general playstyle, and is also developing his SS skills
XSTATIC COLD - 1v1 may be a game of rock paper scissors coinflips, but he continues to be good at flipping coins, somehow
WailJesus - while he may not be as decorated as the other gold tiers, he's still put up solid and mostly consistent performances in both sm and older gens for a while now
TheShadowClaw - in essence, he's basically everything that makes whaleeeee good, but with SM, while still continuing to build upon his skills in SS

DenisTheMenace - With solid performances in SM, room tournaments, and prior team tournaments, he's someone I definitely expect to go positive, if given solid support
ima - Though mostly known for bw, I suspect he could go just about anywhere and do solidly, if given teams
TonyFlygon - Solid performances in effectively every gen in the older iterations of 1v1 tournaments speak for themselves, though I'm not certain if he's even touched 1v1 since last PL
Rosa - it me
TogliBabineBoeuf - Solid pick with a wide range in playstyle and teambuilding, expanding across multiple gens
Iron Crusher - While mostly prevalent in SM, he's still pretty competent of a player in other formats, though some metas may require team support
Nalei - They're pretty much the central 1v1 resource person for a reason, which expands to both SM and SS, with a pinch of ORAS

Skysolo - While not necessarily an avid 1v1 player, he's shown in prior tours that he's more than capable of going positive when given solid team support
Robyn - Won Classic, so she definitely at least knows how to pick mons, even if she isn't a super avid builder
Eriey - Though mostly prevalent in SM, I feel that his knack for making solid sets out of bad sets will likely be applicable to other metas, provided a solid teambuilding group
Scraftionite - Competent and very well capable of going positive, though kind of a blockhead-
LaBalladeDesCieux - Very capable of performing well, though I feel that their performance fluctuates at times. Would likely require a solid foundation to keep them engaged
Kaif - The best way I could describe him is that he's consistently inconsistent, going anywhere and everywhere from beating gold tiers to getting decked by randoms
SolarflareRo - Less inconsistent than Kaif, but really just depends on who his competition is
Tom842 - Weird works, and it's worked decently well for him in pretty much every gen of 1v1
Lkjc - Best performance was in SM, but is at least relatively active and engaged as a potential teammate and teambuilder
ryyjyywyy - Making a program that builds and plays for you is cool and all, but it doesn't really substitute for competency in a metagame. Would do best against players below bronze tier
Synonimous - Put up solid performances in SM and older gens, though hasn't really done much significant as of recent
Waylaid - Though he did win effectively the equivalent of an SS Seasonal in format alone, he hasn't really shown a consistency in official circuit tournaments or team tournaments, but has at least shown that he has that potential to beat even gold tier players

DPP Player Rankings cos Im way too unqualified to do any other gens and I wanna see how mad my opinion can make people

S: Synon: Synon's pretty good I think

A: Yami: Closer to S than B but I wanted to separate from Synon. Good player, even better builder (especially now that hes realised that more mons than toxic stall zapdos/yache dnite/band bronzong exist)

B: James155: Won classic so thats cool. I find it hard to rate him, without knowing how good his teambuilding is. Bit of a wildcard slot for mine.

Joelituh: Played well in wc, experienced player in tours/dpp if not dpp 1v1 in particular, personally rate them as a player and would be surprised if they went majorly negative.

togli: Played a lot of dpp, like check James post, its kinda crazy. Solid player all up, don't really expect willd results either way.

Tony: Good builder historically, will be interesting to see how much he builds for this PL and how well it deals with some of the random ass new shit. Could be nuts, could also get 3-0d by Ambipom every game.

C: GL Volkner: Jury's still out on how much he'll try compared to some of the other entrants. If he does invest the time could be solid but even then I wouldn't expect anything crazy

Inkreativ: Bit of a toss up on where to put him but when it comes down to it, hes probably not the building equal of those above him and hasn't proven himself hugely in past tours. That being said, this could definitely be the tour to change that as he has shown potential. I would love to see the team that picks him up try and grab either the likes of Spitfire Arcanine or his brother just to give that little bit of extra support that could really allow him to shine.

Neomon: Honestly similar to GL Volkner, I would be shocked if neomon built a large number of new teams for this PL or prepped extensively for his opponents. He could prove me wrong and being a manager will likely result in him being more motivated but only time will tell.

Honorable Mentions:

Spitfire Arcanine: IMO A if he hadn't signed up as a sub, solid builder and solid player. Definitely worth grabbing as support if your starting dpp isn't a huge builder. Also worth grabbing just cos hes a lad.

alive: I don't expect alive to be as active as much as the other signups and probably wouldn't provide as much team support from the bench as Spitfire would, but as a sub that can cover a few slots decently could be worth grabbing as a value pick there.

Myself: I honestly have no idea how to rank myself and I don't particularly want to. I'd probably end up being super-biased and putting myself in a.

Disclaimer: If I haven't ranked you, its mostly likely because I haven't seen you play dpp in a smogon tournament, I think its pretty unlikely that you'll actually play dpp, or because I didn't see your PL signup post. If you feel like you should be ranked but aren't, feel free to complain to someone.

Note to managers: Despite these rankings, and whilst some players are decidedly better than others, there is a large pool of players who play dpp well and who could all realistically do pretty well in this tour and so in my personal opinion, unless they provide more value to your team than just a dpp slot (which realistically probably means the first two names on this list) you probably shouldn't be spending a large amount on them.
TL;DR: Anything beyond like 7k for a dpp player not named Synonimous or Yami is a fat overpay.
 
don't get too pressed if you're not here or you think I'm wrong ofc these are gonna be unintentionally biased. they're obviously not the only people that can go positive and surely the vast number of them will force them to lower the records of others but who asked

Meta100gxe (MetaChang) - despite being super new to 1v1 and smogon in general, he's putting forth big results on ladder, already breaking past the peak elo of when gen 7 was the current gen

Whaleeeee - One of the hardest players to read with his overall capacity to switch from solid standard teams to some random horse shit, and everything in between

nobody really mains bw, refer to generalists instead

DJ Breloominati - Signed up for dpp only so-

people who are threats and/or provide support in multiple generations, or are the type of player to be given teams and do well

ggopw - while mainly prevalent in SM, has still shown to be competent in ORAS and is getting there in SS
Squirtell 1v1 - achieved similar SM results to ggopw in less time while only really using one general playstyle, and is also developing his SS skills
XSTATIC COLD - 1v1 may be a game of rock paper scissors coinflips, but he continues to be good at flipping coins, somehow
WailJesus - while he may not be as decorated as the other gold tiers, he's still put up solid and mostly consistent performances in both sm and older gens for a while now
TheShadowClaw - in essence, he's basically everything that makes whaleeeee good, but with SM, while still continuing to build upon his skills in SS

DenisTheMenace - With solid performances in SM, room tournaments, and prior team tournaments, he's someone I definitely expect to go positive, if given solid support
ima - Though mostly known for bw, I suspect he could go just about anywhere and do solidly, if given teams
TonyFlygon - Solid performances in effectively every gen in the older iterations of 1v1 tournaments speak for themselves, though I'm not certain if he's even touched 1v1 since last PL
Rosa - it me
TogliBabineBoeuf - Solid pick with a wide range in playstyle and teambuilding, expanding across multiple gens
Iron Crusher - While mostly prevalent in SM, he's still pretty competent of a player in other formats, though some metas may require team support
Nalei - They're pretty much the central 1v1 resource person for a reason, which expands to both SM and SS, with a pinch of ORAS

Skysolo - While not necessarily an avid 1v1 player, he's shown in prior tours that he's more than capable of going positive when given solid team support
Robyn - Won Classic, so she definitely at least knows how to pick mons, even if she isn't a super avid builder
Eriey - Though mostly prevalent in SM, I feel that his knack for making solid sets out of bad sets will likely be applicable to other metas, provided a solid teambuilding group
Scraftionite - Competent and very well capable of going positive, though kind of a blockhead-
LaBalladeDesCieux - Very capable of performing well, though I feel that their performance fluctuates at times. Would likely require a solid foundation to keep them engaged
Kaif - The best way I could describe him is that he's consistently inconsistent, going anywhere and everywhere from beating gold tiers to getting decked by randoms
SolarflareRo - Less inconsistent than Kaif, but really just depends on who his competition is
Tom842 - Weird works, and it's worked decently well for him in pretty much every gen of 1v1
Lkjc - Best performance was in SM, but is at least relatively active and engaged as a potential teammate and teambuilder
ryyjyywyy - Making a program that builds and plays for you is cool and all, but it doesn't really substitute for competency in a metagame. Would do best against players below bronze tier
Synonimous - Put up solid performances in SM and older gens, though hasn't really done much significant as of recent
Waylaid - Though he did win effectively the equivalent of an SS Seasonal in format alone, he hasn't really shown a consistency in official circuit tournaments or team tournaments, but has at least shown that he has that potential to beat even gold tier players

hey rosa thanks for your draft plan
 
I'm out.

Deleted my signup post for PL, and probably wont be around 1v1 much if at all. Been doing a fair bit of thinking today and if I can't put my best foot forward then perhaps I shouldn't at all. Real life is demanding more and more focus and I've realistically been needing to make this call for a while.
So to all of you, this is goodbye.
