jorgen: I'm not too hot on team stratification. If you're using a team that wants to play at pace X, you want all members of the team to be able to maintain that pace.

jorgen: So I'm basically proposing the miscibility heuristic in teambuilding: like dissolves like. Sweepers and BPers are water-soluble, stall mons want an organic solvent.

jorgen: Of course, such an analogy allows for the troublesome possibility of surfactants...

magic9mushroom: And phase-transfer catalysts. Quaternary ammonium chlorides are so cool.

jawgn: Fleshing out an idea for a BP team. It's basically flowchart gaming to the max.

jawgn: Maybe you'll see it for RoA BOTW if I can get off my duff and schedule that :x
Nov 10, 2014 6:53:57 GMT 1
jawgn: actually scratch that i can't do that BOTW anyway.

Isa: Smeargle abuse planned?
Nov 10, 2014 18:00:43 GMT 1
jawgn: Yeah. Smeargle definitely isn't auto-win, but the post-Smeargle plan is actually pretty decent

jawgn: Like, your opponent has to have balls of steel to thwart your follow-up setup ideas.

jawgn: Biggest issue is actually finding a way to deal with all the Lax variants out there. Particularly LK Lax, he forces Miracleberry on things that'd like to have Lefties to be able to tank an extra Surf

magic9mushroom: Well IIRC the main things to cover are 1) phazers 2) ST CurseLax 3) Explosion spam. Also what's a BOTW?

piexplode: BOTW = Battle Of The Week

magic9mushroom: since you didn't play the BOTW anyway, could you share the BP team, jorgen?

jorgn: After SPL auction, if nobody picks me up (which is very plausible given my semi-retiredness and explicit refusal to correspond via IRC)

Isa: judging by mock drafts, youll still go for 18k
Dec 11, 2014 20:09:54 GMT 1
jorgn: It seems I have cultivated a good personal brand in spite of all the current downsides to picking me. That's nice I suppose.

Isa: Mock drafts were not wrong

piexplode: http://web.archive.org/web/20070115091903/http://www.smogon.com/forums/ turns out that back in the dizzay, smogon's GSC forums were called Mount Silver (however, RBY's was Indigo Plateau). Web Archives are interesting things =3

jorgn: Yep, that's pre-consolidation of old-gen forums. DPP was something special too, and BW was Dragonspiral Tower. Consolidation of old-gen forums happened in like 2012 iirc.
