This is why we need win rate stats. One person says it's broken and another doesn't. It'd be much easier if we had something like "teams with sr vs teams without sr result in the sr team winning 65% of the time at the top of the ladder". In that scenario I would ban sr considering that's pretty high and probably higher than some banned Pokémon win rates.I imagine SR is not being tested because it's not broken at all and the idea of getting rid of it is ludicrous. We also have more tools to deal with it than in Gens IV (which is considered a good and healthy meta btw) and V where it could actually be considered a problem because the counterplay is much more limited. Spikes stacking is seen as more of a problem in V anyway because it does more damage and spinblocking is so easy.
People are just being bitchy. It enhances the strategy of game, not limit it.
It'd make debating whether to ban things a heck of a lot easier
