I don't particularly care about them. I do appreciate their efforts to try and balance the metagame as best they can, though.

Smogon has an fb page? Wow...

Anyway, on topic. I don't really care about them. The guides on their site were highly useful for me when I tried getting into CP, but the forum is awful imo. I either got ignored or flamed whenever I posted there, or got infracted for no reason.

Well that is the main problem. You went on the forums on there. I look at the tier lists, the rules and some of the move sets recommended as a basis to go off of and i go on showdown to try em out.

The reason why people hate smogon, is probably because they do not like to play a game with restrictions, which is what smogon technically is for. Because let's face it, otherwise we would all be using ubers alone, and that would take all the fun away, so their tier-system is actually nice enough.

That said, it does give some problems, for example, people weren't happy when Wobbuffet, Blaziken(+Speed Boost) and Excadrill are now classified as uber, even though their might be valid good reasons.

I don't really hate them, in fact if I am in need of a good moveset I consider reading smogon on the pokémon's page, I also made an enjoyment out of following their create-a-pokémon projects. I dislike their over-the-top rules imposed on the game. Such as Evasion/OHKO clause, which in my opinion are both completely valid ways to play the game (you would have to be able to deal with everything).
