    Gonna stop today at 13-10 with around a 1560 rating. Kinda disappointed compared to how quickly i rose in the winter tournament, but i've got all weekend this time. Then again, you need a lot more points in this one

    This may happen to everyone once in a while, but if you get irritated, you'll do even worse.

    If you want to actually think clearly about your next move, you need to stay calm. There have been times where I blamed my loss on hax, only to look back and later realize that I could of won it if I had just made a less risky decision. And some people, when irritated, even start looking at all hax as though it's against them, even though it sometimes doesn't matter.

    But besides all that, even if all the hax is making you lose, it's still just a game in the end. If it's annoying you, you're missing the point of playing and need to take a break for a while to cool off.

    Since when did playing video require so much schedule management?

    LOL, the only time i get for staying calm is turn one, where nothing happens. After turn 2, I get so frustrated with the hax in the previous turns, that I end up wasting 45 seconds of move time RAGING.

    The problem with hax is, losing to it is annoying,b ut it is part fo the game. But when you win because hax decided to help you, poeple tend to DC <_<

    Bleh will battle more tomorrow. Brought dragonite as my 6th, but in hindsight should have brought my archeos.

    Bad start today...
    I started off round 1 losing to some flinches and freezes throughout the battles, which put me down into the 1400s. And, from there I've been winning battles, but who wants to lose to some guy in the 1400s? 1/2 my battles ended in d/cs
    I actually had a great battle against a Korean player in the 1600s with Rotom, Hitmontop, Tyranitar, Cresselia, and Excadrill. It was a great battle which ended with his hitmontop vs my Gastrodon and Virizion. Sadly, he d/c'd, so I couldn't record it. God that was great with some nice predictions on both of our sides....

    Anyway, some players were nice to not d/c against me, and I brought myself back up to 1528ish. Which is good. But that d/c rate is probably going to bite me later.

    I hope I get better luck during the rest of the weekend!

    The tournament is starting well so far. Got 4 wins out of 4 which is pretty nice ^^ Still haven't got any high-ranked goodstuffs players, maybe that explains it xD

    lol if you do that in an actual VGC the opponent's gonna go what the * is wrong with this guy.
    hax is a part of life, one must adapt to it, learn it, and use it even when it's in opposition.

    Anywho been searching for half an hour, not a single opponent -_-

    Fine, ive reached a solution. Ill enter every battle assuming i will lose, so if I win, i would be very surprised. This way we can stop arguing, lol
    15 wins
    7 losses
    4 disconectors (the only times i got a would be win without hax against me)

    So I just played my first match this tournament.
    Played agains an already high-ranked player from Turkey
    With almost 1700. He was beating me bad with a "beat up"
    Rockslide, until I used swagger to make a come back. However right before he lost he rage quit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    This is happening already! Know wonder he is high rank. Sad part is he'll probably place high....
    The worst part is Nintendo give points to top players that carry over to live events and the RQ top players cheated to get there.

    actually if the rq count is high enough for that person they get dq'd from the rankings.

    yet again i've played against a japanese guy... in 6 games this was the 5th LOL
    i'm at 2-4 sadly, had really bad luck with hax but finally i got some luck, my rock slide flinched his landorus-T so i took no damage which made me survive an extra turn and win.
    I dont care if got hax this time >: they get it every single fight ><

    EDIT: someone forfeited on me and we were still 4-4 o-o

    Going to make some more battles, I'm at 5-1 now, lost against a goodstuff team (so tired of those teams...). Come on guys, where's your creativity?

    EDIT: One more goodstuffs and one more loss, this time due to pure hax --' Missed a Draco Meteor that would have won me the match... Hate losing against these "teams". I can also put together a team of Tyranitar, Hitmontop and friends and win 8 out of 10 battles...
