Wondering about Smogon and Mega Gengar and Aegislash

#1Sophos-ZPosted 8/17/2014 5:11:14 AM
I get how Mega Gengar got banned to Ubers. I really do.

What I DON'T get is this:

Why is Smogon talking about banning him from Ubers...

... and why did Smogon ban Aegislash to Ubers...

... when they won't do anything to stop Talonflame? That monster is still running around in OU.

Seriously. Gale Wings is too good. I'd like it if they thought about these things some more.

It shocks me how people defend mega gengar but fear talonflame.

Mega Gengar makes stall hard to use in Ubers.

Smogon wants stall to dominate every tier, not just OU.

Smogon pushes waaaay too hard for stall.


At the same time, Gamefreak pushes waaay too hard for hyper-offense (Was that even a TERM until recently? Like seriously...)


Suddenly there will be some third force pushing for a speed-only metagame centered around high speed and trapping moves like Infestation, Bind, and Firespin. XD I actually wanna see this one...

Okay, we got the Neptune Action Game, NOW I'm not changing this specific part of my signature until we get a Tales of Legendia R in English.

Because video game democracy doesn't always yield the best results when the greatest bulk of your voters are vengeful and whiny.

Smogon has lost control of their community.

If bright colours and a sense of fun make you afraid that something is childish, then the biggest child around is you.

Has anyone got a link to the topic where Aegislash was banned? I'd love to see the reasoning.
