Yeah, no. The entirety of this post is fallacious at the absolute best, blatant stupidity at the absolute worst. See Administrative decisions post here where the pre home meta will only be around for SPL week 6, afterwards every subsequent week will be played with the home meta. I don't see why DOU gets a pass when literally every other metagame that has to deal with home, whether that be Ubers, OU, etc and has to deal with these changes.Regardless of what Ladder Players™️ think, SPL is the most important tournament on Smogon. PS ladder is important, yes, but tournament integrity of SPL for the next month is of utmost importance. SPL wouldn't be the best tournament if, halfway through, the metagame became completely uncompetitive for 2 weeks just so ladder players can have their fun (especially since their fun is merely delayed). Note that this is Smogon, not PS!, so decisions should be made in the interests of Smogon, which involves to a very large degree promoting SPL as a worthwhile tournament to participate in and take seriously.
With that said, if Everyone On The Ladder™️ disagreed with me, I would be open to changing my mind, but as it stands,Red Pill PUA merely says that he stands for Everyone On The Ladder™️, and I have no reason to believe his opinion.
With regards to having the ladder meta and spl meta be different--I am indifferent to this suggestion, but it is my belief that the meta should be the same for ladder and tournaments so anyone who wants to play in a tournament can practice on ladder. That would mean that I think the rules should be the same for SSnls, SPL, and the ladder.
Finally, I think that once SPL is done, or at least on to top 4, we just drop all the quickbanned mons that were not quickbanned in previous generations (rachi, marsh, Kyub, beat up, whatever) and run suspect tests on them then. Saying 'fuck SPL' so Red Pill PUA can play 2 games a week with Jirachi for 3 more weeks seems very silly to me.
P.S.: ban beat up, I really don't wanna find out that it's broken halfway through my game next week
Is there any denial that these mons might be broken? Maybe, maybe not. But banning stuff for the sake of keeping things from shaking up SPL is clearly not what the TD's want and I'm sure that how the TD's view home dropping in the middle of SPL matters far more than what some random user has to say .-.
