Time for the second poll, here's Rabia's explanation of each option on this slate:

Rabia said:
- +25 Sp. Atk: Discussion about a simple stat raise has been good and allows us to preserve all of Voodoom's current abilities, which I think has some value. It's also a good way to be safer with Voodoom's buffs and avoid a case of overbuff.

- Mega Launcher fixes Voodoom's biggest issue in two ways. For starters, it greatly boosts the damage of Aura Sphere and Dark Pulse, making them both effectively 180 Base Power. This damage boost to the former, though, is the big benefit. One of the issues Voodoom struggles with right now is its reliance on Focus Blast for its big damage, which is a notoriously awful move due to its accuracy. Aura Sphere doesn't come with these woes, and so Mega Launcher really helps out with consistency alongside dishing out damage.

- No Guard is like Mega Launcher in that it simply fixes Voodoom's issues of consistency---no longer will Focus Blast risk missing. Obviously, this ends up being a relatively small change in the grand scheme, and so we'd likely see in the minor buffs slate other potential additions to make this ability not so small in scope.

This will be a Ranked Pairs vote (RP) (a form of voting where each candidate is ranked according to head to head matchups with each of its competitors in a directed acyclic graph), the details of which were discussed here.

This is a ranked vote: order does matter! You can upvote your favorites and downvote your least favorites. You may choose to rank as many or as few options as you like, but we encourage you to rank as many options as possible to ensure your preferences are taken into account.

Bold your votes and nothing else!
A typical vote might look like the following:
Most Preferred
Second Most Preferred
Third Most Preferred

Any comments that the voter has would go below the votes in non-bold text. Bold text is used to determine what the user's votes are, so none of the supplementary text should be in bold.
CAP uses automated scripts to count votes. For this reason, it is very important for all ballots to be submitted correctly. If you do not compose a legal ballot, your post will be subject to moderation.
  • The scripts count bold words in ballots, so do NOT bold anything in your ballot other than the options you are voting for.
  • Do NOT put any formatting other than bold in your post.
  • Only one option per line.
  • The spelling of options must be EXACTLY correct and must match the spelling listed above.
  • Capitalization and spaces are ignored by the vote counting scripts, but you probably should not depend on it.
Composing a proper ballot is easy. Enter BBCode Edit Mode (the A in the upper right corner). Copy/paste the options directly from the OP to your ballot as plain unbolded text. Delete and/or rearrange the options to suit your preference and the poll type. Bold your vote text using bold tags or re-enter rich text mode, highlight your vote and click B. Spelling or formatting errors may spoil your ballot, so be careful!

CAP uses blind voting. Other people's votes won't appear in the thread, but they are counted and will be made visible at the end of the voting timeframe. For more information about this change, check out this PRC thread.

Asking for votes for your submission or for the submissions of others is not allowed. Anyone found to have done so risks punishment at the moderation team's discretion. If you find that someone has broken this rule, please contact the CAP moderation team with your evidence and no one else. Mini-moderation of this rule is also considered a serious offense and can be punished.

The voting options are:

+25 Sp. Atk
Mega Launcher
No Guard

This poll will be open for 24 hours.
