it's ideal in a pokemon tournament to adhere to playing and not pedantic rule bending
i totally empathize with go10 and would have taken the win with his circumstances; however, mcmeghan, as a head td, restarting the timer is simply an abuse of power. i wouldn't have cared if a td wasn't on and timer wasn't stopped, but the blatant act of Reinforcing the timer in the face of an obvious d.c. manifests a lapse of judgment.
furthermore, an impartial t.d. such as ciele could have easily joined the game on jsaok's side and screenshotted the team in order to protect france from shadiness. we have the capability to do so. however, mcmeghan Reinforcing the timer (which benefited his team) without adequate discussion prevented this.
it's not the act of taking the win that is what i disapprove of. go10 and france certainly have the right to do so. mcmeghan, however, blatantly preventing a playable game from being played is something i question. interference of an already stopped timer is supppppperr shady.
we play the game to play the game. not to reinforce the timer for the benefit of our own team.
ya jsaok def shoulda sent his team, but this was so preventable. why not prevent it lol
