While these tier changes haven't been pushed yet (hopefully they will by the end of today), this is what we're looking at for the DW tier for the time being. The tiers, I'm hoping, will be a lot more fluid where things can come in and out of DW more freely.

I'll also use this thread to congratulate user: Zephy on now co-leading DW with me. KD24 resigned as a leader of the tier.

Woohoo, Since Dreamworld is supposed to be the theoretical final OU metagame once all the DW abilities are released (in god knows when), I think the bans here should take upmost importance. I think we should keep DW OU as is and playtest to see what is actually broken, instead of just judging within the next few hours.

That is completely true. Almost like looking into the future. Theoretically BW OU and DW OU will eventually merge into one complete tier.

DW OU stats will now be included in the monthly usage stats thread automatically, without anyone having to ask, and I'll also be compiling "1337" stats for the tier.

I'm really sorry I didn't in previous months--I had no idea how active a tier it was, but it's in fact the THIRD most active tier behind OU and UU.

I'd also like to let people know that when you load a dw team on PO it automatically sends you to dw ubers, so remember to change your tier after you change your teams!!

Is Antar going to be able to fix that? Seems it's going to be a bit of a hindrance in the activity of the tier while people unknowingly play in ubers before realizing that the ladder is likes to goof up.

I'd like to second this. It's also annoying, say, when I load a new team and I have to go change the tier. I know it sounds like complaining and laziness, but really something needs to be done about this.

With all of the changes that B2W2 is bringing who knows if anything that's banned might be functional in DW OU later one when it's the normal BW OU. I think it would be a smart idea to have a neat way to get Pokemon that were banned back into OU. Of course the Pokemon could be re-banned, but this would allow the banning of any Pokemon that are over powered now to be banned then un banned later.
