DO NOT POST IN THIS THREAD, ELSE YOU FACE THE RISK OF AN INFRACTION

Hello everyone. Previously, we had a total of eight threat list threads scattered around the RMT forum. As you can imagine, that looked quite messy and unorganized. As such, the RMT staff has decided to make one general threat list thread to make things easier to find. A threat list for each tier can be found below in separate posts. Simply look for the one you need for your RMT and copy and paste it for quick use!

  1. OU Threat List
  2. UU Threat List
  3. Ubers Threat List
  4. RU Threat List
  5. LC Threat List
  6. NU Threat List
  7. Dream World OU Threat List
  8. Generation 4 OU Threat List
Click on the one you need and have fun!
