    usually ratings are posted the week after.

    As for the RQ stuff, yeah, hope X/Y have something better. That's the issue with peertopeer games as opposed to using a server that can go 'Gee, player A has entered a command, player B's connection seems to ahve timed out. ooks like player A wins"

    i mean, if they took the time to put the 1 hour ban, couldn't they have just as easily send a message to the server that the cart's last match was interrupted next time the player went on the competition? And if so, why not just not let them continue after so many?

    Anyways, odds are it'll just continue still, even through next gen :/

    I hope they figure something out, an hour ban isn't enough of a punishment, and even then there is ways round the ban itself.

    Well as I've been doing, I suggest everyone keeps a track of those people that RQ on them (Name and location if given) then email the list to Pokémon Support at the end of the event, hopefully if enough people do it and the same names pop up on lots of people's lists then they'll get banned permanently.

    Hey guys now that the tournament is over did I battle any of you? I was using this team:

    Nickname: Nathan


    It was really hard to keep up with the ones who used legendaries but managed to get some wins, my Hitmontop defeated and ES Arceus and Archeops took down the Therians.

    Hm...I do recall fighting an Archeops early in the competition.

    Do you remember fighting a Murkrow at all? And is your Archeops holding the flying gem.

    I didn't get to battle you (at least I don't think I did)

    My Charizard took down Genesect and Haxorus took down Reshiram, Ho-Oh, Zekrom, Dialga, Kyogre, Black/White Kyurem (sometimes). I even think Breloom got a win against the Kyurems. Best Pikachu did was take down a Dragonite

    I only fought legendaries and fully evolved pokemon. My Archeops was holding a rock gem to unleash a powerful rock slide, it only used acrobatics once to defeat a Landorus.

    Hitmontop had a Sash, Garchomp was my sash-breaker with Dual Chop, Galvantula had a grass gem, Starmie a life orb and Arcanine an Air Balloon.

    Rakings are up, my ranking is 780, with 11 wins and six losses. My rating was 1575, would have been much higher except the RQing was very common for me for some reason.


    EDIT: Is higher or lower ranking better? First tourny lol.

    Rankings are announced on my end.

    Score: 1517 (best thus far).
    Win/Loss Ratio: 49 wins to 51 losses.
    Ranking: 1615 out of 6939.

    Not too bad, methinks.

    Higher is better.

    And also, **** Nintendo. I got to 1881 after 67 battles, then they didn't bother including me in the rankings. I should've been around 37 if they hadn't ****ed up (and no, I didn't disconnect on anyone).

    110th place with a 1770 rating here. Funny thing is I actually fought the overall winner (JoeRoy) known as SPS and just as I was about to win that match he disconnected on me. Otherwise I would've loved to record that battle, among few others that had ended in terrible disconnections.

    The ranking is the place you're in.

    So, if your rank is 1, you'd be in first place.

    Edit: I got 116, along with 1763 points. I can't find my win/loss ratio, though.

    Best I've ever placed... 273 (what a shock :/ Mewtwo was the most used Pokemon) And Garchomp is the only none legend most used

    Had I taken it more seriously, I could have likely been higher

    Go to "My Page" and click on the Global Battle Union/Wi-Fi Competitions tab. You should be able to see your rating, ranking, and win/loss ratio from every wi-fi competition you participated in there.

    Unfortunately for me, it appears too many people disconnected on me, and therefore I'm barred from the rankings (should have ranked 110 with a rating of 1772).

    Well then. I've got 45 wins and 7 losses.

    Would be 47 wins if there were no rage quits, but oh well, I'll live. I almost made it to the top 100, at least.

    Well I'm amazed I actually got ranked!!! Despite all the DC's I obviously completed enough matches to count.

    Rank 567, 1602 points, 54 wins, 32 losses.

    If only the other 20+ RQ's had counted, I'd be right up there , still at least I'll get the berry this time!!

    Just took a quick look through the first 300 in the rankings and managed to find 4 of the people who DC'd on me:

    Worn FRA 15th
    TheDomator DEU 24th
    Broda CHL 111th
    Link429 GBR 262nd

    I'm going to continue my campaign against the RQ'ers by emailing Pokémon Support again with their names and positions and asking them to check these peoples DC rate.

    Surprised rankings are out so fast O.o 293rd with 1660 19-3. Bleh i can never seem tog et more than 25 matches in these, and those 5 RQ's against me was bleh, especially that 1850 worth a chunk of points.

    Speaking of which, you sure other people RQ'ing on you counts against you? Just curious since well, the 5 people that RQ on me would put me at like 18% rate if it did which would have fallen in their removal quota.

    Which brings up the question of why did they choose to use a % instead of a flat number like 3, as well as even post their method pretty much telling people how much they can safely RQ. But that's a different rant.

    Hahah just checked mine. 12 wins, 9 losses, rating of 1583, and a ranking of 715. xD I only played on the first two days, and I still ranked better than my last two tournaments. XP

    Anyways, I thought the tournament was actually a lot of fun. Definitely an interesting thing to be playing in, and it was actually cool to see so many non-Legendary/low Legendary teams that were playing. I won against them, but it was cool how close some of those matches got, and just their overall boldness was really cool. I did drop off, however, cos I came up with two VGC teams during the time span, so my focus was pulled elsewhere. It was fun playing in it though! I didn't actually face any RQs in my run.

    As for my team, the only thing I can really say is I should probably have added something super bulky. Nothing took hits very well. Lugia and Dialga were the bane of my team, although I was capable of getting around them. It was just much more difficult, and I'd say I lost most of my matches to teams with either of them.

    Well Sadly this was my first turny ever. I brought OU's to an Uber game and I DC'd 3 games and got unwillingly Dc'd 2 times out of 40 games

    my record is 36 and 4 with a 1756 rating
    sadly I got Dq'd apparently and I'm still trying to figure out why.

    the games I RQ I will admit were to stupid op Uber teams but, I shouldn't have RQ so i will take my DQ. I just want to know why tho -_-

    out of 40 games i probably had 3-4 people rq on me.

    As for my Win/Loss It's in my descrip from as far as I can remember. So far this is the best I had, and it's also REALLY good if you think about it since I was using all legitimate Ubers and they weren't perfect like some if not all those teams at the top were probably done. I'm about 16 pages in to the category.
