I have no unironic opinion on Tera (my ironic opinion is "lol skill issue + l2p + l2s"), but it's absolutely hilarious watching people mald on Smogon.com because a single decision didn't go their way. We all knew that the supermajority required for Tera being restricted/banned was never gonna be reached anyway, it was a pipe dream considering the solid amount of people wanting no action. If you're in the Anti-Tera camp, I would just place my hopes on a resuspect ASAP.
Mark my word, this is the cringest moment of Smogon's history. Making this kind of suspect a "supermajority" one was such as poor decision to be honest. People voted, 59% said they wanted something done about Tera but eh it seems it doesn't matter. I can't wait to watch the next SPL this is going to be something..yeah something. I’m full of bitterness, really a bad day for Smogon's strategy.
I disagree. I believe keeping this a supermajority like it historically has been in the past was the right move here. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the methodology behind making OU suspects have a supermajority of 60% as opposed to a raw majority of 50%+1 is because OU is the most stable of the usage-based tiers, since it doesn't suffer from the unpredictable tier shifts that lower tiers are beholden to. This means that a greater portion of the OU tier must agree that the aspect in question is banworthy because it is unlikely aspects will be introduced that make it balanced (well, at least before DLC was a thing), as opposed to lower tiers where Mon A can be broken for a month, but then Mons B-E drop into the tier that beat Mon A handily while Mons F-H rise that helped enable it, and suddenly Mon A isn't broken anymore. This is an extreme example, but my point is that a simple majority works better in lower tiers than it does in OU and that bans/unbans are harder to revert in OU than in other tiers. Thus, a supermajority to ensure that a wide portion of a community agrees with a decision is a good thing to ensure action is not hastily taken.
Think about it like this. Taking action on Tera is a huge decision, one that will have ramifications on how Gen 9 will be tiered for the rest of its lifespan. Would it be fair for 51% to decide action should be taken over the voices of a near-equal 49% believing no action is the better choice? Or would a 60% supermajority be fairer?
