Hello monotype community! Today I have a text-based interview as irl issues have prevented Perish Song from being able to do voice chat. As you all know, he is one of the managers for the Mirage Island Milotics and a first-time MPL manager. His thoughts on his draft, drama, and Co-manager can be seen in the interview below:
Q: How do you feel about your draft? Was there anyone you feel like you missed or got taken away from you?
A: I dont feel too bad about our draft honestly. Our initial plan was to get self-sufficient ORAS and BW slots to focus more on SS and SM, which I think we accomplished that with Cell and Freeroamer but failed the second part a bit. I would love to get Prosaic to pair up with Empo, they'd form a dangerous SM core I think and we definitively should've upbid him when we had enough credits to force it.
Q: Which gen do you think you are the strongest in, and which one do you think you are the weakest in?
A: I am absolutely trash on ORAS and my greatest is probably SS.
Q: Who do you think is the biggest threat to your team right now?
A: Biggest threat in our team right now is Decem's teambuilder. Get ready for triple Scarf Poison.
Q: Which players do you think we should keep an eye on?
A: Yedla has been most impressive to my eyes amongst every people we tried out. He is currently in seasonals R9, he had a good run last seasonals as well. He's playing pretty much everyday on ladder and always testing/improving. He also did pretty good in his tryouts and I hope he carries that on in MPL.
Q: What are your predictions for how this MPL is going to go, any exciting upsets or players on the come-up?
A: This is hard to answer because I think teams are very close to each other in terms of potential. We have so many good matchups and names to observe in this 2 months marathon so this MPL will definitively be fun for spectators.
Q: What were your thoughts on this rather unusual draft?
A: This was my first ever auction draft so its safe to admit that there were crazy moments by me, most notably .20 Empo and .11 on the ending lol. But overall there have been some other weird moments involving players like ima, Ssalbap, Arifeen, and Got Cookies. Overall this was a weird draft from many aspects and nothing else needs to be said about it lol.
Q: What was your rationale for the people you drafted, do you feel like they all work together really well, very solid in their gens, etc.?
A: What we did was pretty much going aggressive over people we'd enjoy their company in the team, and also very solid at their respective gens.
Q: Any players you were shocked didn't get in? Any players you were shocked that did get in?
A: You and Thunderbirds not making it are a bit suprising for me, considering how much effort you guys put into this.
Q: I noticed you have quite a few tour players on your team that don't main monotype. What is your reasoning behind that for those who aren't familiar with Premier Leagues?
A: The tour players I have drafted all have some sort of Premier League experience from another tier, and have played Monotype one way or another. So we thought it wouldn't be a bad idea to combine the two together.
Q: Any tips for those who didn't make it?
A: Never give up and keep working hard to achieve your goals.
Q: Do you like managing with Decem?
A: Decem is one of my best friends from monotype. He's super invested in this and is good at pumping up morale so I do enjoy managing with him.
Q: What is your reaction to the [explative] Perish Song memes?
A: Based on what I did, I knew something like that bound to happen. Of course since memes are memes, they shouldn't really be taken seriously and people who know me good probably knows that I don't really care, but I must admit myself that what I did was horribly wrong and I apologize from the community that I clearly underestimated what this means for people and the community. As a Room Owner I was always a believer of giving chances to people, and I have no idea what the fuck I was thinking and to be completely contradictory my own beliefs for any particular reason.
Q: What would you like to accomplish this MPL?
A: Since I was too busy hosting tours left and right I didn't really invested too much in playing before? So I most certainly push myself here find my limit and overcome it. I hope to get a positive result at least.
Q: Any closing remarks?
A: I wish every team good luck and lets have a fun tournament together. :)
Thank you Perish Song for taking the time out of your day to do this! I will be interviewing Decem separately as I have a lot to talk about with him and it would also make this post waaaaay to long. Expect the next interview at around 2:30pm EST with the Trick House Treeckos!
Fuck is this nonsenseHeres you're completely unbiased and extremely lazy Power Rankings
As requested by Omega
1. Hau'oli Houndooms
Probably the most solid team. I don't know who HMNIP is but North is a BW monster. I'd expect pretty much every other player to either play a good game or win. Not a whole lot of bad to say. they might get overconfident and choke.
2. Meteor Falls Miniors
I feel like I see Attribute, Ridley, GotCookies, Conflux, Leru, Bitana on a team together extremely often. They usually put up good results and aside from cookies and confluxx (Choke Masters) the whole team is good as well. Shiba and Alkione are decent support while p2 can end up getting slept on. No knowledge on Cae tho. Although Confluxx is a choke master he will still end up doing well.
3. Blackthorn Bucks
The Bucks are led by Haven and Zarif which I can only imagine how chaotic their team will be. Although this is the most hit or miss team drafted. They can either go 1-7 or 7-1. Havens and Jyph are the weakest members of what will end up being their main lineup. Havens is not as bad as everyone says he is but he's definitely not the greatest (Record wise) and tends to choke. Jyph used to be pretty solid but now he's kinda washed up. Lax, SirSkit, Sae, As long as the motivation is there they will have good records in this tournament. Vodoom is probably the biggest coin flip he will either have an extremely good game or get 0-6 and ragequit after week 2. Kythr has the potential to do well but fairly new to say just yet. I expect Cata to mainly help with building rather than putting up wins but maybe ill be surprised. The rest of their picks just felt like they had leftover money.
4. Goldenrod Gengars
Although they are the returning champs they took a big hit drafting themselves again limiting the potential of other players that they can pull (Budget wise). Zap and chai the most toxic manager combination will surely still put up good numbers. Peachy is overhyped but still a really good player. With Feitan not playing Bo3 I don't expect as good results, he should still put up a # of wins. Toadow I believe will actually become more of a bust than a sleeper, although he has the potential to be either. Nailec and Croven are both coin flips but not as good as the bucks coin flips. Aside from the ladder no real knowledge on the rest of the players.
5. Hearthome Honchkrows
The Honchkrows are full of tournament players and builders. I don't know if anyone on their team even plays SS so they look like they will just be trying to 5-3 every week. Sabella in Bw and Lycan in Bo3 should do fine but the majority of Bo3 players are good and will be tough matchups. While for Bw Sabella is 2nd best for those slotted. On top of that with other tournaments coming up its hard to scale their motivation for this tournament. If they end up learning SS in the first week they will have more potential but as of right now this why they get the 5th spot.
6. Trick House Treeckos
Managed by Wanka and Piper should be fine for the most part. I do think Floss is the best SS slotted player and will probably have the best record for SS, so worth the 24k. Piper has shown skill in his battles but I can't say Bo3 is the slot for him. They have Bouff and MTR7 as their other SS slots which show they have a strong SS core in addition to Floss. Prosaic probably won't care much for this tournament but he can be expected to put up good results. Crashy is here looking to secure his 4th ring and with the right prep he could bring that. I expect to see a lot of building arguments from this team.
From here on out, I'm not expecting the greatest results from these 2 teams
7. Mirage Island Milotics
Decem has made name for himself yet his team is pretty risky. Empo is a good player but with other tournaments coming up his focus might not all be there. On top of this he is still quite inexperienced when it comes to monotype. His SS line up is nonexistent without a good builder. I just don't think Decem will be wanting to build 5 teams every week. Although most of the players he picked are non-mainstream players so respect can be given that he wants to give other players a chance while still hoping to put up good results. Hopefully his team can rally but the fact of the matter is that they don't have as much of a record to back up the skill as other teams.
8. Dreamyard Darkrais
Almost every player on team are choke masters. Kev will probably go even this tournament. Bap is a coinflip depending on who builds his team. As long as Zuku doesn't tilt should go positive. Dugza can be a good builder and probably will scout to try and get the best MU. The rest of the players will go even in a best-case scenario.
I was randomly told to do a PR in the discord mono and so here it is. It's really lazy writing but I think it's efficient enough. I'm pretty certain about the first 2 positions and the last 2 positions. but both Trickhouse Treekos and Hearthome Honckrows have the biggest breakout potential. So they have the potential to be higher. At the end of the day though SS is pretty trash so guess Lycan had the right idea.
And please stop calling Zap and I toxic when people like Luckypiper existEvery Post you make in this thread will be another MPL without you in it.
Okay weabooMPL PROFILE PICTURE TOP 10 AND BOTTOM 10 LIST
Hello Hello Hello! What's up gamers welcome to the show you've all been waiting for. I'm gonna go ahead and start by listing off the Bottom 10 Profile pics in this MPL, and after that I'll get to the top 10. Now I'd like to say I'm gonna try my best to not just add cute anime girls for the entire top 10 but it's pretty hard as they tend to be the best. Good Luck to you all I hope you rank highly.

While I personally find it pretty funny that your profile picture is Zar and his family, It's pretty fucked up of you to dox them like that. so I've decided that this Profile picture belongs in the bottom 10. Maybe this will teach you to be kinder to others and not expose them on the internet. Now with all that being said it's honestly a mediocre avatar even if you ignore all that stuff so you should probably change it anyways.

I probably wasn't even gonna put yours in here but your dumbass wanted to say something stupid like "my avatar is goat haha" so I put it where it belongs, in the fucking trash can. Who even is this kid and why is he your profile picture, Please work this out and then maybe we can talk about changing your spot.

How many times have we talked about this mateeus, this bird is so dogass what is wrong with you bro. Starly is cute, staraptor is cool, staravia is like that middle school phase where you yell "fortnite" during class and hope to god someone thinks you're funny. I really don't know what to tell you about this ugly ass bird that you don't already know but please.

It Physically hurt me to put an anime girl in the bottom 10 list but what the fuck am I looking at. A mediocre character who's not centered and isn't even off center in a cute way it's just ugly and looks like you had a stroke while trying to crop it. I don't have much to say other than god it's ugly.
Days for Dabs

This one is pretty much in the same boat as Mateeus, A mediocre image of a DOGSHIT Pokemon. I know it's your meme "haha it's good on psychic guys believe me" but like cmon it's not even cute or cool or anything it's just a cat. I hope one day you also come to your senses but I'm doubtful honestly. Anyways good luck this Mpl.

LOOOOOOL Sorry bud did you think being on my team was gonna keep you off this list? This is somewhat a shot at your name too but what the fuck bro "randompizza" followed with a a very basic type of pizza, not even a "random" one. I'm truly disgusted and I could throw the fuck up but it's ok I still love you buddy <3

I don't know where the fuck you guys find these nasty ass pictures but this looks like someone spilled coke on their screen while playing Pokemon red, let it sit for a few minutes and then took a picture with a walkie talkie. Please god you chose a good Pokemon why did you pick such an ugly picture to go with that thought.
View attachment 256832
I know this one is like ironic and all or w/e but it's still ugly as fuck and I didn't think it deserves to be left out because "it's a meme", It's honestly just some random ass dude grilling so I'm not really sure what about it I don't like but it's just not pleasing to look at even a little bit.
View attachment 256833
This one isn't really as bad as I'm ranking it, but that fucking Pokemon man. Toxtricity looks like a Skylander and I'll never get over it. Ugly ass Pokemon I wish they never released that creature. Not sure whether you thought it'd be cool to be back to back with your boy toxtricity but all I can imagine is you being some goon from a childrens Wii Game with that thing next to you.

You are one nasty bitch aren't you. What the actual fuck is this thing bro are you okay. PeachyClouds I always knew you were a bit of a weirdo but like unironically the profile picture I made you use last year was better than this ugly ass fucking video. you definitely deserve #1 for this shit. I truly hope you seek help because you fucking need it.

With an all around aesthetically pleasing profile picture I felt it couldn't really be left out of the top 10. it's been this for as long as I remember and it's a Monotype staple at this point. Not a whole lot to say it's just a good looking profile picture overall.
View attachment 256836
This is a great profile picture, it not only shows Bits dedication to the rock type, it does it in a cute and aesthetically pleasing way. I'm personally not a fan of most Rock Types but I respect the grind if nothing else. Keep it up Bitana and stick to your roots.
1 True Lycan
View attachment 256837
I was truthfully conflicted on this as I felt it'd be better as a youtube banner or something, but then I realized that the reason Lycan uses his name as his profile picture is because he's the kind of person who doesn't need an image to be his symbol, his name is a symbol itself. this kinda hit me deep so I decided to move him up from #10 to #8 and now I'm quite fond of his Profile pic. Still gonna thrash him on sunday though.

Averardo with a super cute profile picture oml. the background and the outfit of the girl fit super well together and I think whoever made it has a good sense in cute things. Overall a well done picture and a good choice for an avatar. Not much else to say, grats Averardo.

Despite being a massive bully and killing the hopes and dreams of all the GOATS who coulda gotten onto the Milotics, his profile picture ends up being pretty cute. With a good Color scheme and a cute girl there's really not much to complain about so I don't have much to say
Feitan the steam
View attachment 256840
Feitan with an adorable matching profile picture, with her hair blending in to the background color I love how they did this. A cute anime girl with a colorful/good color scheme background will probably always be good but I'm quite impressed that a gengar has such a cute anime girl profile picture.
View attachment 256843
Dugza I honestly don't know how you suddenly started picking cute profile pictures after using the UGLY ASS Cheren avatar for so long, but I'm glad you changed friend. With this you've joined the winning team and now you'll be able to reach levels that were beyond you before. Good luck this Mpl lad.

It may not be an anime girl but it is fucking adorable. the sparkles in the back with little Bulbasaur and Pikachu hanging out while Pikachu pats him on the back. It looks like Bulbasaur just went through a tough breakup or maybe someone close to him passed away, overall an adorable profile picture and I'm very glad I drafted some1 with such good taste.
View attachment 256845
Zukus profile picture is a classic at this point, but that aside it is absolutely ADORABLE. I'm not really the biggest Pikachu fan but god this picture is so cute and it's colors are so well done. I truly hope Zukushiku never changes his profile picture because everytime he wins my heart fills with joy because I get to see this adorable image.

Gondra my lad I always knew you had good taste since the day lax said "hey Piper why are you using one of gondras old avatars". I literally didn't know who you were but from that day on I knew you had good taste and you proved it once again right here. Shinobu is adorable to start but thne the picture is so cute and OMG I don't know what part to describe. Congrats on having the best Avatar of Mpl 6.
(By the way maroon would normally be on the bottom 10 list but he lost a bet to decem so his profile pic isn't dogass rn)
Congrats to all of you who made it onto the list (good or bad)
