    Grow up.
    if I'm confusing you with someone else I'm sorry. I don't want to make escuses but I'm really upset I was dropped.

    I really don't any bad blood between us. We could probably learn from eachother.

    Please excuse me.

    598th with 1547 points. If I quit at my highest point (~1580ish) I could have gone up about 200 places. I still don't have the berry either. Been keeping spots open for it in my garden all week. I'll see if waking up my pokemon and game syncing again works, because the pokemon has also been there for a week.

    I've been over to Nugget Bridge and Smogon, it seems they've been very heavy handed with DQing people this time around - a lot of the top guys are complaining that they were DQ'd. Hopefully it'll stop the strategic DCing a lot of top rankers from previous tournaments have actually admitted to. I wasn't a problem for me down in the low ranks, but it's still a problem that needs to be sorted. There was a couple of battles with guys in 1700s that I lost but it ended in a DC. I did wonder if this was strategic DC because I've heard that you can lose points against lower ranked players. Both times it was close(ish) so maybe I would have gotten points for giving someone higher than me a run for their money. Does anyone know exactly how the rankings work?

    I really wanna complain about the system they have,, if they can detect if you turn off the machine,, why they can't tell the different who's doing RQ? I got RQ'd more that 10 times.. but I don't get to the ranking,, I didn't do RQ,, but I'm glad that there's someone with 2000+ points that RQ also didn't make it to the ratings,,, lol..

    hopefully those guys will get the message and they'll be less strategic DCing next tournament.

    Yeah I was RQ by a person with point in the 1900! The highest placed person in the masters was 1936 I believe. So ether that person was DQed or lost some matches. I really hope that figure out how to fix the quitting issue, especially with them doing VGC related tournaments online now. People quitting really really pisses me off, makes me not even want to play..

    Anyone else notice that there was only 2000 some people that played the winter VGC masters division out of the Americas, Europe, Africa, Australia, and southern Asia(NOT China, Korea or Japan). There where over 10000 people that played the eevee cup master division, which was Japan only. Wtf that's pretty bad. Japan is pretty much an island and it had 5x the number of players then almost every other Continent combined.
    Maybe a lot of people got DQed for RQing and that's why the numbers are so low, idk....

    Well just because Japan is small doesn't mean the population is. It's the 10th most populated country in the world, with 127 million people. Also I think Pokémon is a lot bigger over there. Still it's interesting that they had so many more people for a rotation tournament using Eevee and Eeveelutions only, you'd think that with such a random tournament they'd be not that many entering.
    The numbers compared with the Autumn friendly are lower though; ~4000 for Autumn friendly vs ~3000 for this (masters +junior/seniors combined). They don't include the people who got DQ'd in the number of participants (I just went down to 2347 in the rankings), which means they might have DQ'd ~25% more people than usual. Sounds about right given how many are complaining that they were DQ'd

    ETA: They really need to sort this problem out. The need a way of knowing who DC'd so they can just give them the loss, hopefully they'll implement this by gen6

    I played in the masters so there were 2x the people playing.(I believe I may be mixing up the divisions #) anyway I only placed 200 and something. I didn't really give to much effort however I kinda have no love for Nintendo's wi-fi officiating what with the RQs. Ill just stick to the live events until Nintendo does something about Quitters.
    I only had 3 people RQ on me, this time. What really makes me made is they were high ranked and probably placed high too..
    Anyway I hope they figure out how to fix all the RQing. During season 1 of ranked wi-fi battles I was ranked 4th in double battles in the U.S for almost 3/4 of the season and I never RQ once. However I had people RQing just about every 4 out of 5 battles!! The really shitty part was I got DQ'd because of frequent disconnecting( because my opposites were RQing ) which is total BS. I work very hard, and even took time off work to place in that season and had it all taken away from me by RQers. Makes me not even want to play wi-fi. I just entered this tournament for the Barry, even though I played to see if they fix anything..

    The aim should be to DC 0 times. Dc'ing even once is bad sportsmanship.

    However in the masters division I ranked 18th (5th in Europe and 1st in the UK) without DC'ing once.

    I used a team of; Latios, Metagross, Gastrodon, Scrafty, Heatran and a Roserade.

    I only used Roserade to prove to my brother that it can be used in VGC. But to be fair this isn't even close to the team I'll be using when the UK VGC finally rolls around.

    I was ranked #267 with 38 wins (42 if you count the rage quits) and 23 losses. It's my best ranking so far but I keep getting destroyed by Drizzle teams.

    I have a theory:

    The Japanese players will also receive the Custap berry for competing in the Christmas Cup, the results of which will be announced Jan 8th. Intially I was hyped that we'd get the Custap Berry before them, but now I think we'll be receiving it at the same time. So Jan 8th + however long it takes for them to actually post the results + however long it takes to get the berry

    http://bulbanews.bulbagarden.net/wik...nced_for_Japan

    ETA: Jan 8th is the date of the "major news" - it's blatantly going to be the fact we can get the Custap Berry now (sarcasm)
