Apologies for not knowing you so well and commenting on your blog. Your story of revival just touched me.
Congratulations on reviving your FF.net account! I read the first chapter of the story and am just really, really excited for you. I enjoyed what I read and am looking forward to read more and comment on the story here at BMGF.
Just never let go of those dreams. You obviously have a deep love for writing and a passion that, however dim it may have become through the obstacles of life, is there and inside you to create and explore. And, from your writing, I think it has a good reason to be there. :) Writing styles are always changing and expanding as we grow...so I am thrilled to see what you will do next.
Please keep going. Please keep following your dreams. This clearly makes you happy (for good reason!) and that, out of all things, is a reason to do it. Personally, I love writing even knowing if one person can be touched. Your story of getting back up again and seeing what you can make out of things has touched me...and I hope that others see it and see what your passion can do. So excited for this new chapter in your life!
*wink* I'm your official thread killer here...
Everything wilts when I take a step into a thread
You're always welcome in the War Room and I'm sorry if you feel otherwise. You're a good player and we like having you around. Good luck with everything in 2013!
I miss you in War Room, Feli. Hope you're having more-than-agreeable Holidays. :3
Heart of Crystal still alive?
The War Room does feel like a battlefield from time to time, and I sometimes find myself getting heated up over trivial situations - momentarily forgetting that place was created to have fun. I feel a little guilty when I recall what I've done.
Hope you have a better year - and best wishes in 2013.
I'm still very sorry about the whole YGOTAS mafia thing, Feli... I hope things get better for you. It's a new year, so things can only improve. :)
I did notice that you left for a while, by the way, and I know exactly how it feels to not fit in the War Room, but I stay anyway.
Hey, I would care if you left.
And as for the war room, well, maybe I wasn't in there from the beggining, but I can certainly feel some anger to new people. I will try to make myself more open and friendly to new people from now on, but I can't speak for the others. Still, I'll do what I can in order to make the war room a better place.
Awwww...people care that you've been gone, don't be like that.
That's how I feel about the War Room. It feels like it's becoming more and more hostile to people as of lately, and all the older players aren't really there anymore. Well, the veteran players like you, Ryuu, and Rayne. Like, after this one I'm in, I probably won't play again for a long while.
I'm also sorry to hear about your job. I do hope you can find a better one soon.
I do hope you and Ryuu have a wonderful 2013, and I hope we get a chance to talk soon. :)
The part about the War Room, Ive had similar experiences. I really just cant play right, and I found that out the hard way,and I really cant open my mouth without making myself seem scummy and half the time dont use my role right and have no real strategy( and when I did it didnt work like I thought). I had a hard time in the games for a long while. I still lurk there a little bit, but I'll probably never get back into it :l I felt it was just time to step out.
Sorry about your job, that sucks :l Good luck in what you do this year.
WHY U LEAVE US ON A SAD NOTE!? D: I hope you get your Internet fixed. :D
Sure :) I love MLP
This sounds pretty cool! If you're still doing it, I'll pm you a picture tomorrow. :)
Ive never actually used Flareon, so Im not gonna say it's bad in anyway. Im considering using one in B2/W2 though. Basically, Smogon can say whatever they like, dosent mean you need to listen.
I love Flareon though. I have two of them on my Pokemon White. .__. it is pretty kick-ass. People should just give it a chance.
Holy goddamn fuck, come on. They're praising Rattata over Flareon. Flareon is not terrible in game. You've just got to be willing to spend a few TMs on it. Even then, this isn't a competitive setting.
I think you're taking this way out of context. The first statement s true, simply because there are better fire types while Jolteon and Vaporeon are fairly high up there in terms of selection for electric and water types. Flareon is being rated down by comparison to its other evolutions NOT by comparison to Rattata.
Now as for your suggestion on how to make Flareon good, one problem with that is in order to be good, you've just wasted 4 TM's on it. Now, this is in the age before reusable TM's in a play style where, if Flareon dies, all those TM's have been wasted. Rattata doesn't actually need anything since the reason to use it is its Fang moves. Obviously, Rattata/Raticate would likely be replaced later on (Maybe by the time you get to Lavander town?) but in terms of sheer usefulness on when it's caught (first route vs. fourth gym), not many Pokemon level 10 - 20 can handle a STAB base 80 move, and is certainly going to be one of your most powerful moves that early in the game. Objectively, Rattata is the better option compared to its alternatives at the time of its availability, while Flareon has to face up against other strong contenders.
This is in game, where the best solution to ANY problem is enough level grinding. Yet they recommend Rattata and Raticate over it.
Sure, you can say "level-grind" but let's look at the purpose of this article. Not only is it to inform individuals on what a Nuzlocke is, but to also give people tips on how to succeed on their first try. Why on earth would anyone want to read an article that states the obvious? You've got to be really stupid if level grinding isn't the first thing that occurs to you. However, given that few people give Rattata a chance, very few would know of its early-game utility without looking up the fact that it learns Hyper Fang at level 13. Even then, if you're looking up Pokemon, why would you look up Rattata? Also, people begin to level grind when they can't beat a particular opponent. This is a nuzlocke, so you'll have to know whether you can beat an opponent beforehand otherwise all your Pokemon are gone.
If anything, the only criticism you can draw from that statement is that it overinflates Rattata's usefulness since its only good early on, but what are you going to do if you only have one paragraph to describe FrLg nuzlocke? Finally, anyone who actually wants to use Flareon will use it regardless, but for those uncertain of what to evolve eevee, that's merely a suggestion.
You have to admit, not all Pokemon are good in-game. Take Chansey for example.
