UNBIASED lc ranking

1. Loor:

Ive been able to carry him even If he allegedly weights 180 pounds and is 6'2", he beat star, also hes Canadian. Best lc player gg ez and he def didnt ask for this btw

2. Tazz

Despite wanting to delete lc, Tazz brings the experience of having played lc since the dinosaur era ( apparently idk im not that old). Tho hes quite the plain Jane for an astute trash users tastes, hes definite quite reliable and I dont see him losing to some shitter ( f u lkap)

2-2(my list I decide). Qithr (hello n00b)

A YouTuber who's most well known for trolling in freezai discord, kythr joins tazz in being a solid mid-westernist who will use mainly standard ish teams and prolly win a lot

4. Elfu

Epic player who will complain hes to high on the list in my onlyfans as soon as he sees this.

5. Surfy

Fucking attrotious among us player who is based af. Despite being married he still finds time to snipe me on ladder with my own teams which is sick btw tysm surfy -_-

5.5 TC he pigned me on cord also he plays sun with nicknames in ALL CAPS and hes knows snorlax irl so I think he will do Fine

6. QuinnXd

she seems motivated pick her up imo

7. acenoob1

A player most well known for stealing my copy of Mario kart Wii. Won circuit ig tho so wtv

8. Bobasaur05

i want his kids

9. prob some other good players tbh

Some personal PRs
these are probably the most equal teams ive seen in a while for BLT

1. Dracovishes
ubers - leru
ou - clean
ou - crucify
uu - dugza
ru - heni-san
nu - gxe
pu - drud
lc - acehunter1
dou - z strats
mono - kaguya lys

great-looking team. everyone would be capable of getting wins and i think every player is above average (idk who heni-san is but blce seemed eager on getting them). But I dont think theres definitive top players in here besides z strats and gxe so they'd have to rely on slots to perform really well. gxe and alex's team winning last year slightly helps their case

2. Jirachis
ubers - shiba
ou - star
ou - stareal
uu - axelsior
ru - wigglytuff
nu - avarice
pu - jonfilch
lc - raj
dou - jonas
mono - maki

great players capable of getting a lot of wins all around like shiba avarice jon maki and even their cheaper buys are good like raj and axelsior. they also have the strongest ou pair in the tour contending with michael and ez. im unsure about wiggly and jonas but they should get work done as mains for their tiers.

3. Laxes
ubers - lkapkd? lol
ou - attribute
ou - tdnt
uu - zorodark
ru - eternalsnowman
nu - gw
pu - gorex
lc - tazz
dou - crunchman
mono - zen?

i was pretty annoyed at how good the lax's draft was looking for a while when they got people like gw and tazz for such low prices with a lot of funds left towards the end. I feel like they couldve put more money on the better players that got drafted late and it ended with some question marks. overall still a solid team with no real weaknesses except ubers.

4. Roserades
ubers - 7u9i2
ou - baloor
ou - halaman95
uu - plas
ru - kyo
nu - onarceus
pu - zio?
lc - kythr
dou - smb
mono - kev

the team is has great players in kythr smb onarceus kyo and probably plas and kev and their subs are capable too (assuming this is their lineup). but theres also (respectfully) probably the worst ou pair in the tour with a stacked pool. i would expect kyo to help them out a lot but I'm not sure how much that would translate to wins for them. some question marks in pu and ubers but the rest of the team should go very positive.

5. Laprases
ubers - aberforth
ou - roginald
ou - harshal/myjava
uu - tlenit
ru - thefranklin
nu - xiri
pu - xskelly34
lc - surfy
dou - actuarily
mono - maroon

overall a good looking team with strong pickups in doubles ru ubers and probably mono that should get a lot of wins along with xiri. The ou pair is pretty underwhelming though and I'm not sure how much support they would get or from whom but they would need to overperform.

6. Milotics
ubers - tdr?
ou - michaelderbeste
ou - ez
uu - luthier
ru - spl4sh
nu - tob?
pu - london13
lc - king leo v
dou - luisin/spookyz/mammalu
mono - atrax madara

most top heavy team ive ever seen in my life. michael luthier spl4sh and ez should carry their weight but there are questions marks in nearly every other tier besides lc and maybe pu. depends on if luthier can support enough for them to get wins.

7. Solgaleos
ubers - rhmsitb
ou - frisoeva
ou - airfare
uu - oras-mega
ru - floss
nu - poat
pu - pattek
lc - inasty?
dou - shadowmonstr
mono - qwily?

has some strong players like shadow friso and floss along with oras-mega and qwily. it looks like there are some question marks in tiers like lc and a few underwhelming slots. overall not a bad team at all with some good picks but the others look a lil better to me.

If I were to include my team being unbiased, I would probably fit them in at around 2 or 3 with capable players all around.

LETS FUCKING NOOOOOOOOOOOO

Hello dear Smogonites.

During week 5, a SS game between airfares, of Solaceon Solgaleos; and SpookyZ, of Majestic Milotics, was played. airfares had shown his team with a teammate named QWILY prior to the game. QWILY proceeded to leak the team to SpookyZ. SpookyZ told his team about getting his opponent's team leaked and said that a team of his had a good matchup versus the team. Several users on the team made comments related to the leak and/or the team that SpookyZ intended to use. Nobody on Majestic Milotics contacted a member of Solaceon Solgaleos to inform us that our team had been leaked, and the issue was not raised with other tournament directors before the conclusion of the game. Upon airfares asking SpookyZ, SpookyZ confirmed that QWILY had leaked the team to him.

Upon receiving the information that our team had been leaked in advance, accompanied by logs proving the fact, someone contacted tournament director Finchinator on Sunday. He at some point between Sunday and Monday started a discussion with manager ez and tournament host Jordy and shared what PrinceOfAllTacos knew. At the time of PrinceOfAllTacos reporting what he knew, Milotics were 1-2 and the game between airfare and SpookyZ had taken Milotics to the coveted second win.
The group has, according to PrinceOfAllTacos, concluded that nobody on Team Milotics will be punished. As of me writing this, QWILY is also not punished for his actions.

Below I have attached logs detailing the source material I have used to reach these conclusions.
https://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen8ou-1604059608-ta2qyuvy798nj3hbwpqcvpjmcdr34z6pw - the replay of the game
1656337131944.png
1656337109304.png
1656337212034.png

I want Tournament Directors involved on team Milotics that neglected to inform their opponents to step down from their current position.
I want appropriate punishments for any leader on Team Milotics found to have been deleting messages in their Discord server.
I want QWILY to be tournament banned.
I want SpookyZ to be infracted or tournament banned for neglecting to inform his opponent that the team airfares was using got leaked to him in advance.
I want the game between airfare vs SpookyZ to be nullified.
I want Tournament Directors not on Team Milotics to handle this situation as seriously as it should be; as there are severe indications of wrongdoing.

Thanks.

(There weren't any TDs on the team and the TDs/hosts haven't done any harm idt. Lastly, not everything may be accurate because c/p, but still take this seriously)

I literally don't care about the situation, but I don't want to be involved like this. I don't think anyone on our team knew what spookyz was going to bring and nobody delete discord messages. can't point finger like that, I receive enough hatred haxing

I agree, the situation is about two specific users only so let’s not drag the whole team into this as they wouldn’t know what going on with their own teammates privately.

One thing I can say is that BLT has been here for some time now and I’m not sure if leaking has happened before in this I think (could be wrong though). This event is something users of the community look forward to each year, and I definitely don’t want this to be a joke or a platform where players can take advantage of and do things that are unsportsmanlike. It ruins the experience to those who’ve been looking forward to this tour and for newcomers.

I trust Jordy and Tranquility to make the correct decision in the end, just give it time.

Totally agree here. BLT may be my favorite tour on this site and I think that stems from it being a fun, cooperative team experience but also much more laid back than stuff like WCOP. I’ve heard the sentiment thrown around a couple times now that ghosting, leaking, etc do not matter because BLT isn’t a “serious” tour. My only take here is that if you really feel that way, it’s somehow even more pathetic to be cheating in a tour without actual stakes. Let’s not do that.
