Why didn't you win the best host award ?
What I do is I go to Subway and have them make a sandwich with no toppings, but every single condiment they have. I then go home, pulse it all together in a food processor, then throw it out and buy tahini.What is the hidden "sauce" that makes you this good of a presence?
CAP Snake Draft easily. I think the team tours are when CAP has the most visibility and activity as a tier. The meta always develops a ton, people make new friends, the memes can be great, etc. Very much looking forward to seeing if I can top it with CAPPL VII.What's your favourite tournament you've hosted?
Don't date people if they don't have your best interests at heart. Stretch before you practice. Don't worry as much about what other people think.What advice would you give to a younger you? Can be mons or irl related.
I remember CAP LC being a very fun meta for those involved, and working with the LC community again would likely be a ton of fun. The issue there is that as of now, CAP Prevos aren't built for any specific meta, they're very much a side project. I think it'd be cool to change that in the future, but I'm saying all this as someone who would likely never play the tier. Building a CAP for Ubers would be wild too, since I'd like to see what the project is capable of when it takes its gloves off.Would you like to see a specific CAP meta explored more, if it meant not hindering the evolution of others? If so, which one? (EG CAP LC/NFE/UU/OMs).
Snake is too powerful. I challenge him to 6th dimensional jedi chess battles every day but I lose every time.What's stopping you from taking over CAP rfn
No. Zephyr is a menace to society and if unleashed the world as we know it will crumble. Real talk though, Zeph is an extremely promising user, and the only thing holding him back from soaring through the ranks on PS is his internet provider.
Samurai Champloo. Nujabes killed that entire soundtrack.What anime in your opinion has the best OST?
Not my cat but he's a tabby shorthair? No specific breed afaik, just a mutt.What's your cat's breed? Can I see him again?
Honestly I'm not super big on traveling, so I'd probably just travel to a much nicer house and stay there permanently. Probably somewhere by the beach.Where would you travel if money wasn't a concern?
Tentatively this summer? Tada+GMars Beat Tape 2021 is gonna blow your mind, it'll be even better than the Tada+GMars Spring Break 2009 Cool Jazz Holiday Special.
I can't recommend Mid Air Thief enough. Man is unbelievable, completely in a world of his own when it comes to music. Gotta represent Chicago by saying Makaya McCraven's music is wild too, definitely check out In The Moment and Moving Cities with Antoine Berjeaut. If you want to get more into classics, Free Your Mind And Your Ass Will Follow by Funkadelic is a whole trip.Hey tada, the government and I locked Darek away and are now looking for his coconspirators.
Got any artist recommendations in the psychedelic genre?
Rogue and Arcane Trickster. I think skills are really what fleshes out 5e for me, and pursuing expertises within game can be really gratifying once you get them. Just the sheer versatility of rogues in general is incredible even outside of combat, then stack sneak attack, uncanny dodge, evasion, slippery mind, elusive, etc on top of that and you get a really great class to play. With arcane trickster you get all the benefits of being a rogue with increased magical fuckery just exponentially widening the horizons of what you can do in any given situation.Favorite DND class and subclass?
Plasmanta.Which CAP do you think would cause you the most bodily harm in a fight?
I mean there's CAPPL VII. I'm kinda waiting to finish out everything I already have scheduled, but you can expect something fun in the latter half of the year, probably replacing the budget and regular tours. SS CAP Cyclohm Cup 2 is coming though, so be prepared.Do you have any fun tournament ideas in the works?
Bring back megas. Bring back Pursuit, Bring back Tail Glow.What new mechanics, if any, do you hope to see out of the gen 4 remakes?
Will Rabia’s lead ever stop growing?
As of now Samurai Champloo is probably the classic that I show everyone, since that was what got me into anime in the first place. FMA Brotherhood was also really strong in my eyes, and The Boondocks is also one of the best animes out there (except for season 4).hello tada
What is your favorite anime?
Yes. She should join SPL too.

I think the best way to really improve the room would be to move towards pursuing ways to increase room activity and the CAP meta playerbase. Since most of the people on PS are there to battle, it's only natural that the rooms with the highest visibility/populations are those with the largest playerbases. CAP's playerbase has ballooned since I last left in 2017, and I think there's still a lot of room to grow. During team tours is when I usually see the most new faces in the room, so I think improving their quality and promoting them better so more people want to stick around would be a key step towards achieving that. I have other ideas as well but I'm gonna keep them to myself until I discuss them with staff.As the most recent room owner, how do you think the PS! room environment could be improved, if at all?
Being the first person to see the lineups in a week. There have been so many times where I'm entering a bunch of familiar names into the bracketmaker and I just get hyped thinking about what matchups are coming. Usually the end result is me thinking "oh shit sorry SHSP" but it's still a lot of fun. Also being in every team's discord for team tours is really interesting. There seemed to be a huge variance in approaches to winning Snake Draft and I loved watching everybody strategize and build. Hopefully CAPPL will be more of the same.What's your favorite part of tournament hosting?
I'd love to have a World Cup of CAP (WCAP) but I don't think we have enough people at this point. The final decision will ultimately be up to consensus via PRC, but I wouldn't mind having a second auction based tournament. The difficulty would come in finding a way to really differentiate it from CAPPL, and I'm not super sure what the best way is to do that yet. It's not as if Snake Draft doesn't have its upsides though, but I think that I and most of the managers from the previous snake would appreciate having a more balanced draft style. I could see retains being a part of the team tour scene in the future, but at this point we kinda have too few people to do them fairly. Again this would be something I'd rather have the community decide, but personally I wouldn't want to implement them just yet. The same goes for permanent franchises. 8 teams though? Let's do it, so long as enough people sign up.What are your ideas for and opinions on the format for the second team tournament, now that it's been revealed that snake drafts aren't really super viable. What do you think about retains, 8 teams, and permanent franchises in CAPPL?
First of all there's no need to act like anything other than yourself, but if you're actually interested in exploring music I might have some advice. The most important thing is to start thinking about what it is about the songs you like that makes you like them. Once you can pin that down, explore the artists who made that thing that you liked happen. Any pop song is going to have one or more producers on it, and if it's the production that you like, check out who they are, who else they've worked with, and just listen through their catalogues. You can check out who your favorite artists list as influences, what samples they use in their songs, etc to get a good idea of who else you might like. At the same time, a lot of pop artists use studio musicians that show up all over the place. For example, if you liked the bass line on Watermelon Sugar, you could look up who played it and find out that that same bassist played with a whole slew of other acts, like Adele, Paul Simon, John Mayer, The Who, Ed Sheeran, Nine Inch Nails, Phil Colins, Eric Clapton, Erykah Badu, D'Angelo, Elton John, BB King, members of Pink Floyd, etc, then start exploring all of the stuff he recorded with them. This is all very rambly but the point I'm getting at is that music doesn't exist in a vacuum, and if you look at the circles of musicians surrounding who you already like, you'll probably find more music that you enjoy.I have basic af music tastes; all I listen to is pop or rock songs by mainstream artists, and sometimes anime. However, I want to act like i'm interesting and quirky in music discussions. Knowing all of this, what music or albums would you suggest me to listen to?
If someone brings the boys in a team tour that would probably constitute throwing. Their services would better be offered as life coaches to the team rather than warriors.When are the boys getting their first team tour experience? I want to see Philbert officially manhandle spoo, in a replay visible to everyone, featured on Smogon's twitter and facebook and youtube and twitch.
It's changed quite a lot since I first start playing. It went from being a side project of the meta to being the main focus of the project, which I think was a huge step forward. The playerbase has increased a lot, as well as the quality of play. Having frequent tours, both in the room and on the forums, has been good for that. In the next 6 months I'd just like to knock the playtest, CAPPL, and all the other singles tours out of the park. I've seen a lot of genuine effort put towards developing a few CAP OMs/Old Gens and I'm looking forward to seeing how all that blossoms over the course of the year. Reaching out to and developing connections with new people is always fun too, and I look forward to seeing a lot of that happening in the future.Greetings Lord Tadaskulus, many many questions are afoot, but here are those I have at hand.
How have you seen the CAP meta change/evolve during your tenure as an active player, and where would you like to see it go in the next 6 months, year, and beyond?
I think I've covered a lot of this in the posts before this, but really I just like seeing the community learn and grow. Honestly I think the best way to improve CAP tours is to replace the guy who keeps hosting them, he sucks. If I could host any tour, it would probably be a tour at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame so I could sneak in at night and steal the pick of destiny.What aspects of CAP tours have you been enjoying, and what do you think could use improvement? If you could host any tour at all what would it be and why is it SPL?
My main goal is to develop a CAP VR game so we can go fight Plasmanta irl, and see if an Astrolotl with a spear can actually beat a Miasmaw with a shield. Outside of that I'm just looking to make the meta grow, and trying to take advantage of any opportunity to do so. I've been branching out a bit with tournament hosting, but I don't really plan on becoming super involved with any other communitiesWhat are your current goals within the CAP community? Do you plan on branching out beyond it at any point?
So the issue with that line of thought is that the priest performing the ceremony is actually an anthropomorphic carrot cake. The cake is wedding us, yes, but there will be no wedding cake. I'm gluten free.When you and snake_rattler get married, will the wedding cake be a bad pun covered in bad puns or a bad pun made of bad puns?

I'm not super certain I've got anyone I'm spiteful enough towards to do that. Maybe if I see I burned Hippowdon I'd hex it but honestly your idea sounds pretty solid.if a hypothetical indebted witch offered to place an evil hex on anyone of your choosing, who would you hex and what would it be? id probably curse lasen to get his likes taken away again because it would be really funny
Really depends on who signs up. Rabia's lead is ever increasing, but I think there could be a few people that would have a shot at dethroning him. Stresh could do it if we fax him a better router, maybe this'll be the tour Finch wins? Again I could probably give a better answer once I see who signs up.who will win the cap29 playtest and why?
