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.

No, they just shouldn't be factored into tiers based around the ladders.

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


Such arrogance, such stupidity, Smogon's demise is near.

Like it or not, tiers are determined by GOOD players. This weighting system should have existed from the start.

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.

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?
