Would you care to expand on this a little, especially since you're refuting the last few posts in this topic with just one really vague sentence? It seems to me that you, along with a select minority, are using this "no centralization" argument based sheerly on numbers instead of taking the actual gameplay into account. Numbers are always great to have, but the opinions of the actual players are much more important when deciding the fate of the game we are playing. This is evidenced by the fact that this board was created.I fail to see how you'd use anything but the actual measure of how centralized things are to measure centralization.
You say it yourself in your post in this topic:
If this is really the case, then why is so much emphasis being placed on usage statistics in determining "uber status"? What is the point of even trying to collect the data if we aren't going to use it? We have seen Garchomp usage skyrocket every month (it was literally almost 10 million points above the #2 pokemon), yet mentioning that he may be uber quality to Colin has been responded to by him saying "Garchomp won't ever be banned on this server". Gee, I really love it when people demand statistics and then ignore them when given. Hipmonlee's post about pokemon benefitting from weighted usage is much more convincing to me than yours about how "most people rarely take it into account", since that statement is blatantly inaccurate.it's fairly obvious that a pure 'majority' isn't enough.
