    Treehouse Frontier (Or something along those lines)

    Post by harsha on Fri Mar 16, 2012 9:56 pm

    Hello.

    Yes, I of all people know that we do not, nor will we ever support a Pokemon league. However, I have been thinking it over, and I have decided that we may want to try a frontier out of our own. Now, before yelling about timeframes and such, this would only be open to active members of the community, and it would be within a timeframe (around 10 days - 2 weeks). The format would be something like

    • 3 BW OU
    • 1 DW OU
    • 1 BW UU
    • 1 BW LC
    • 1 BW Ubers

    That way, it would be extremely hard to beat the frontier. In addition, we could give incentive for challengers to try harder. A prize of some sort would suffice. I realize that it would be extremely hard to first and foremost, FILL, these positions, so some testing and research would obviously have to be done. Of course, this is only a rough idea, and I'd like to try and fill in the holes within some time. What do you guys think?

    I don't really think a league is great idea in my eyes
    second if there was a prize then it could be champ or something

    This sounds better than a league, but we'll have to make sure the people in the slots are qualified.

    lol Skyleon.

    @ Vol: This wouldn't be a league, think along the lines of the in-game battle frontier.

    @ Rick: That's the biggest issue, but I think we can cover it.

    I'd like to apply for the BW OU slot, since it's the tier I'm best at. I'm also a regular, so finding me for a battle won't be hard. This sounds great.
    Let's ask our Smogon friends to participate, haha.
    (Delko, Stone_Cold, etc.)
    The below .gif illustrates my thoughts on this idea.

    Well, I know that we can reliably fill in the BW OU and DW OU slots. The problem is that all of the people that already take up a slot are the only ones to play other metagames (Ubers, LC, UU). I would have to do more lurking around on the server to see what I can do.

    Would an all-OU work? 5 Wifi OU and 1 DW OU?

    Having an all-OU frontier would be monotonous and repetitive. Doing that would make the Frontier (if we even make one) boil down to just another 6 battles in the same tier. Having multiple tiers gives a greater challenge to people challenging it.

    Basically this. I think it would be more fun for everyone if we were able to diversify the tiering.

    Alright, then. We'll have to go scout for some potential applicants for the other tiers, and evaluate their overall battling skills for the different tiers.

    I think it's a cool idea. I've never been one for Frontiers, but ofc, I've never tried it. If allowed, I could try for the DW spot since it seems to be my best tier (imo).

    Alright, from what I am getting, there would be enough people to fill the frontier out. That means it's time to revive this idea!

    Wifi OU would consist of Rick and Kira probably, and I'd be willing to participate if no one else would. Vol or someone else could also fit here.

    I'd be glad to do Dream World OU unless I participated in BW OU. If so, I'd probably allow Roxas to take it up.

    Wifi Ubers will be filled by a player I deem good enough at the tier. If I allow the first four positions to fill, I would take this up instead.

    UU and RU could be repeats of a player.

    That's all I have to say. Have a nice day.

    I'll help with the Ubers spot if we can't get Hemlock or another more avid Ubers player to take up that spot. If I turn out to be better than Hemlock in Ubers battling, then yes, I'll help by assuming that role. However, I'd personally prefer a BW OU slot.

    We'll be following the Smogon tiers, unless there are any significant objections.

    Um, I just wanted to point out that Hemlock uses random gimmicks, such as Choice Scarf Groudon, which furthermore decreases its credibility as an established BW Ubers player. He isn't a bad player, though. I could potentially be a BW Ubers candidate, since I have a great experience of that metagame. I also peaked at 1413 points on the Beta server in that tier.

    Serebii has recently made me one of its 9 (now 10) Battle Frontier members... I don't know what this says about our project, but I still believe we can do it.

    Hey, Harsha, I'm going to try to get PO on an old compiter of mine (it's a 97 model so :/) to make a new dream world team and we can test it. K?

    I could try and fill most places if needed, but I have no grasp on Little Cup, and I'm not too great at Ubers either..
