Won 3-1 vs SoulWind, ggs
I'm gonna use my 15 minutes of fame to share a few thoughts about a bit of everything.
First of all, I am very happy with this achievement. The hunger to win a tournament, and this one particular, kept growing as I went further and I am ecstatic to have taken it. I had thought how I would feel would I lose, and well, that's what happened to one of my long-time buddy here. Can't really say much to make you feel better SW, you know how much I respect you and I look forward your future incredible performances, with even more success hopefully.
Gonna send a shout-out to the French Discord and
. The people from those two groups are my closest Internet friends and I'm truely glad for all the moments and times we get to share. You make my presence in this community and my life better. I would also like to thank everyone who sent me messages of support throughout the tournament, it is greatly appreciated and makes me want to stick around even more.
Regarding individual shout-outs, well, I mostly did everything by myself since the start of the tournament lol... But I do wanna mention some people. Ojama
pour toutes les fois où nous parlons Pokémon, ce qui me fait toujours mieux comprendre le jeu, surtout dans les old gens. En plus de ça j'ai utilisé quand même tes teams en ADV et BW par moment, donc tu mérites bien ça. Peasounay
je n'aurai pas ma compréhension et mon affinement pour le RBY sans toi, c'est toujours un plaisir de discuter du tier avec toi. Heroic Troller
for helping me prep the final RBY game even though it didn't come into play and GaryTheGengar
for helping me prep the final DPP game too.
Like I said, I'm very glad to have won this tournament. Old generations have been my passion for a long time, and I always knew I was a complete player when it comes to playing them in a Bo5. I think I flew a bit under the radar of some people due to the success of some other powerhouses, and I'm satisfied I could take this Tournament and show everyone what I'm capable of.
To wrap this up, I'd like to mention that I'm also satisfied with the approach I took this whole tournament. Instead of trying to constantly prep and come up with new (stolen) teams, I mostly sticked to what I had experience with and it paid off big time. During the individual cups, I pretty much used the same teams for every series and they could all be found in my replays since I'd often test them on SmogTours. One of the best thing about Old gens is their stability and when a team is good and you're used to it, you can make it work in any game. I also re-used teams in PlayOffs or just slight variations and the results joined my ideals! Goes to show that you don't have to hoard teams, just train with good stuff and you may enjoy this game even more. I enjoy seeing the personnality in people's games and it truely shines when someones takes the time to build and train with their ideas.
That about sums it up, cya everyone around :)
