Ludimoth Was Here, Topmoth is a Loser: 2013 Masters US National Champion Report

For those of you who don’t know, I’m kingofmars. I managed to win US Nationals. I started my VGC career in 2011 in the newly created Seniors division, where I placed top 4 at the NorCal Regional, losing to Unreality, which I then followed up with a top 16 finish at US Nationals, losing to Mosquito. After failing to qualify in Worlds LCQ and being motivated to make better teams for the next year, I managed to do very similar to my 2011 performance despite my best efforts in 2012, top 4ing Regionals and then losing round 1 of Nationals. However, my story in 2012 didn’t end at the LCQ for Worlds, as I made it through and then secured a 2nd seed after 6 rounds of swiss, losing top 8 to eventual winner, Dim.

you listed duy's team as having 5 pokemon. I don't know if you didn't know his 6th or not, but I just wanted to point it out

He mentions it in the turn by turn as being Terrakion.

Actually was a really good read though, and interesting to see how you came to all your team decisions.

A nationals report! And just in time!

 

Seriously, good team and good report, I know I definitely dissed this team in Under the Bridge #1 but I feel the need to again declare (a) kom is a better mons player than me (B) even if I dont understand the team and even if I would never use it it is obviously a good team and he won a really really difficult nationals with it. Landorus-I is kewl

Hey man, steel gem Iron Head is good. It's way better than Meteor Miss! I like that you pointed out how reactionary this team has to be played. Not that it isn't obvious, but I glanced at it a few times in the past and wondered how it was able to do as well without an aggressive offensive strategy of its own. This team is like the super-anti metagame teams I liked to make in 2010. Stay true to your play style if it works.

Nice report, and some cocky comments made it pretty enjoyable for me to read.

I really like your thought process, although it was confusing sometimes, like your infamous Ttar-Lando lead, which has quite some flaws like Scrafty, Suicune and such.

Of course I was interested in your match against Ashby the most, and seeing that he brought the "losing" Lead from game1 again in game3 couldn´t confuse me more.

Well, thanks to our sparrings I added Stone Edge on Scrafty shortly after my Nationals in Bochum, but Ashby refused to use it, and somehow I´m glad you let him pay for it, haha.

So Kudos and thanks for revealing some weaknesses of my team and making me the better sun player, I´m sure you will do well next year as well-how you do analyse your opponent shows it- and we´ll meet at worlds ;)
