RE: Round 1 Max. Optimizer vs. SegFault_92

I wanted to welcome the opportunity to say that I accidentally broke one of the tournament rules during my first encounter with SegFault_92:

I had forgotten to bring a mandatory starter Pokémon when I was using my second team in the games 2 and 3.

Neither of us had initially noticed it back then, but my heart sank when I noticed the honest mistake while rewatching the battle videos.
I immediately reached out to the host, locoghoul, and my opponent, SegFault_92, to inform them about my accidental faux pas.
However, instead of automatically taking the win, SegFault_92 allowed me to switch one team member out for a starter and to replay the games 2 and 3.

Let it be known that SegFault_92 didn't only prove his competitive skill, but also displayed admirable sportsmanship.
You're a class act and a lot of players out there should follow your example. I'm looking forward to battling with you again in a foreseeable future.
I'll never forget this experience. From the bottom of my heart: "Mille grazie!"

Replays:
Game 1 - LJ3G-WWWW-WWX5-6732 (SegFault_92)
Game 2 - 7JEW-WWWW-WWX5-B7AN (Max. Optimizer)
Game 3 - G2MW-WWWW-WWX5-B7BG (Max. Optimizer)
