    Pretty excited about how these tournaments went. Italy, Australia, Japan all sent a bunch of players to Worlds I’m interested to see compete there. Shaping up to be a great event. Congratulations to the players who punched their tickets recently.

    I forgot some of them, I will find out them. 

  10. Wow. Number 5 hahah. I got told it was sixth placing. Not complaining then :D

  11. Sarkastik says:

    Sarkastik* haha,
    Aus nats was great, shoutouts to the organizers for managing 9 rounds of Bo3 Swisse so comfortably. Will be interesting to see teams from these events, as Japan and Aus (and from what I’ve seen, Italy too) tend to use some weirder/more creative teams. Hopefully the format progresses from this tbh, because it feels pretty stagnant atm

  12. PaedosInSpeedos says:

    Sean Ronzani should be 5th in the Australian standings since he went 7-1-1 in swisse.

  13. Sekiam says:

    Road to Boston! Really excited about getting my third trip to Worlds! 😀

  19. I found a vid of the japan nats finals if anybody is interested.

    Just want to note that at 11:24, rotom-w uses snatch to steal suicune’s tailwind. I wonder if it was used due to suicune/calm mind cress/megamence’s popularity.
