Nope. Kids and friends who dont like PVP
I could do more on my acct, but its more fun to stick with a team say Mantee/DeoxysD/Alteria for a whole season and then see how I did with it compared to say a slightly tweaked team (Skarmory instead of Alteria) or a completely different team (Stunfisk Venusaur Azumeril). I could do the same thing by playing sets on my own more but then I’d have to track "Okay I’m 65/95 with Team1 55/95 with team 2* where this way I can just look at the total and let the game track for me. I typically dont change a team for a season, and its just more fun/easier.
Don’t misunderstand my purpose: Sure I get nerfed harder than others cause of change, but I play for fun and its fun so that’s not my issue.
My issue is that most people might not notice it takes 100-115 games to get to 7 vs 80-100 to get to 8. That’s quite a bit of a nerf. But its a nerf most won’t notice . I hate hidden game nerfs. If you typically get stuck this will let you progress farther, even if it takes more time.
Although I got to admit to 1 extreme Pet Peeve in this new system: Wasted Wins. It’s a stupid mechanic.
Obviously the game has our Win Total… it’s displayed in game… All they need to do is compare to that on the ranking system. Im wasting easily 5 wins probably more which is 20+ minutes of time because of stupid way they coded ranking
