We have the results of the responses to our first SV OU tiering survey up here
It seems increasingly likely that we are approaching the first suspect of generation, and the subject of it is set to be Terastallization. As alluded to previously, the plan is to make it a two-prompt suspect (it will likely be a single-time vote, but in order to complete that vote, you have to respond to two simple questions rather than just one). We feel this creative and novel solution best captures the unique situation we are attempting to tier, but also acknowledge that there is no outright perfect solution either.
If the playerbase votes on taking action, which will likely require over 60% support to begin with, then the current options the council are considering for tiering action are as follows:
- Outright banning Terastallization
- Limiting Terastallization to a single user per team
- Showing Tera type at Team Preview
- Limiting Terastallization to previously held STAB types only
We will likely adopt ranked-choice voting
for the second prompt's results in order to generate the most specifically fair verdict that represents the sentiments of those who obtain suspect requirements.
Please note that this is NOT set-in-stone and we continue to discuss matters so we can serve our community in the best way we know possible. Thank you.
