The idea behind this system is lessening the impact of noobs/casuals in the tiering system, but at the same time it lessens the impact of skilled players who couldn't care less about laddering.
Opinions on this?
I think it's yet another bad move by Smogon. Good idea, terrible execution.

I think you`re forgetting that according to Smogon, everyone who doesn`t care about laddering is a noob or a casual. --- Administrator Winterbane of the Orange Islands TRPG, at your service.

No, they just shouldn't be factored into tiers based around the ladders. --- Posted from my Xbox360 with 360FAQS v1.1

I am not interested in your opinions on whether or not this weighted stat system is a good thing. Any posts along those lines will be deleted

Like it or not, tiers are determined by GOOD players. This weighting system should have existed from the start. --- http://i.imgur.com/qCo47.png http://i.imgur.com/Q7Q8S.png

I honestly don't get how this is bad. You let those who are good have more weighting on how Pokemon are used. You let people who are bad have a lower weight on how they were used. It's logical and makes sense. --- "[Soccer] is like chess, only without the dice." -Lukas Podolski

I see the logic in this. In fighting games the more skilled/better player can relate more to the tiers (understanding of tiers) than noobs and casual players. So why not use it pokemon. Noobs can yell X is better then Y because they have trouble with X. But without understanding the full potential of Y is it really Y< X? --- The Official Interceptor of the Duodecim Boards The Official Zangoose of the Pokemon B/W 2 and Pokemon X boards
