    Absolutely gutted, it's not given me a ranking
    I got 1769, only played 30 matches and had at least 7 people RQ on me so looks like I got booted from the rankings

    Hmm just wondering if they haven't done the UK rankings yet? UK Global link is down for maintenance, so hopefully they're putting them up.
    I really hope so cos I'd really hate to miss out on Championship points

    Well even more gutted now. Emailed Pokémon support to see why I wasn't in the rankings and it was as I thought. Because I had a people disconnect on me when I beat them I ended up being disqualified, here is what they said:

    "Unfortunately, when a mid-match disconnect occurs, technical limitations of the Wi-Fi server prevent us from identifying which player initiated the disconnect. Both players are credited with the disconnect, creating a “false positive” for the player who did not initiate the disconnect. These false positives are not ideal and Pokémon Organized Play continually evaluates how best to mitigate the effect these have on the community."
    "While Pokémon Organized Play provides some leeway for disconnects, it is possible for a player to exceed the disqualification threshold by accumulating enough false positives. If you believe that you have been excluded from the rankings through no fault of your own, we sincerely apologize. We will continue to refine our processes within the confines of the current technical limitations and work toward overcoming these limitations in the future. We appreciate your continued support and hope to see you participate in the next Wi-Fi tournament."

    So because I only managed 32 registered battles in this competition the 7 RQ's and 2 times I lost Wifi meant I had a 24% disconnect rate.
    Also means I miss out on the berry.

    Moral of this story is if people disconnect on you then you have to play even more battles to ensure your disconnect rate stays down.

    Hahah no problem! I'm on it!

    If you look at mine, I did not do so well myself. I'm honestly just glad I was able to keep my wins/losses on an equal scale.

    1. If your team is correct. Yes (unless I wanted to be picky and note that Sableye and Reuniclus were shiny and Gastrodon was east sea, lol)
    2. Your Win/Loss Ratio: 14/2
    3. Your Final Score: 1647
    4. Your Ranking: 907

    I was kinda expecting to be higher than 907, but I guess there must have been a LOT more people in this competition than in the Winter Battle.

    It's crazy! There were ALOT of people participating. 1784 rating got you 16th place in the competition for US alone. And, I think I got 2 championship points by getting 294th in the over all tournament.

    My ranking was 2126. My rating was 1582. If it wasn't for the disconnections, I would be a bit higher, but altogether I was pleased with my teams performance.

    I ended with a rating of 1535, which is pretty much average for me.
    And yes, my team is correct (though I use a blue gastrodon, not that appalling pink-and-brown variety)
    No idea what my ratio was though, sorry. I don't keep track of that.

    I'll have to be honest, I didn't really enjoy this tournament so much. I had a really nasty run of bad hax and I got kind of bored seeing a bunch of old teams from two years ago get resurrected. I did pull off some nice wins and all, but it just wasn't as good as the last tournament or two, in my opinion. It was just very... blah. If that makes any sense.

    Not sure if I'll be entering this newest one, after all. It turns out, I already have the Micle berry, so the prize isn't much incentive. And I'm not sure that I particularly want to SR and train up a bunch of legends right now. It sounds like it'll be a fun tournament, but it's such a drag to have to figure out a strategy for a battle style I never use using Pokemon that I never use AND train them all up to fit that strategy within... what, a week? Maybe I'll take a break and just wait for the next tournament.

    Yeah, I said earlier that I forgot about it completely. I was really busy that week and didn't realize that it was going on.

    I think I found out why my "improved" team did worse then my last one...I had assumed that Join Avenue trained a pokemon in a specific stat, not the EVs, so that, for example, Speed Level 16 would give me the amount of EVs it'd take for a level 100 pokemon to get a speed boost of 16 points.

    Nope.

    Instead, Speed Level 16 would give exactly 16 EVs. And thus, all my pokemon were much weaker then they should of been.
