I don't have a ton to say about these two themselves, a ton of other people have already done an excellent job of explaining why they deserve the rise and I think at this point almost everyone understands why they're so good. I do however have some thoughts on some of the posts advocating for a more conservative raise for the duo. I've seen a couple of posts claiming that the bump to A is too large because there exists the potential that Hail is only a cool trend and will come down in the near future. Not to put too fine a point on this, but honestly I don't really think anyone should care about that lol. The purpose of the VR, in my view at least, is to give an accurate view of the metagame at this given moment, not to try to predict what stuff will stay good for a while and what's gonna have a short shelf life. There's really no sense in being innacurate out of some weird sense of caution. If in a month or two Hail has completely died out and is no longer worthy of a high spot on the VR, just lower them back down then, no big deal. At this moment in time, though, Hail is definitely worthy of being called an A rank threat, and the current VR should reflect that.
