    Regarding Intense Mode

    This might be more of a rant about the community than Jan's decision but whatever, as most of the discussion both here and on the Discord were just people saying "OK" and ":(", so I thought it was a good thing to explain what I see of the situation not just as a whole but even beyond it. People should stop glorifying this was good thing. Nobody won this day, from the people that loved the mode to Jan feeling forced to choose this decision or even the mods that had to explain the situation over and over, there was not a single good thing to come out of this announcement. Although this is not saying there were any good options (with Jan definitely looking like he had to choose something to sacrifice), for example, if Intense mode had been kept, the toxicity of people complaining about it thinking it was somehow Jan's fault and the pressure Azery would be through, specially since he had already decided to axe a lot of future things from the now gone next Intense battles due to this bad behaviour. Which, speaking of Azery, how does he feel about all of this? Intense mode was like his "baby" and it was definitely responsible for the big A.I revamp and hours of hours of his life working with it, this honestly looks awful, and while he accepted the decision, did he agree with it? (2 different things) And about Intense, it has already been discussed the question about Elitism, but what else did it bring? Intense definitely attracted a lot of people and honestly was very interesting, including me (which might make me stop playing this game but it's irrelevant to the discussion), although as said before, the limitations meant things like Azery resorting to Saki having 2 megas with items, even though it was by far the funniest V13 fight to me, I can see why people hated the Intense version of it. And another thing that Intense did was show a new "genre" of way to play Pokemon battles and the birth of "hardcore" mods such as the currently being revamped Memeborn made by Azery himself, so yeah, while Intense isn't available, it's definitely not gone as far as its impact goes. Which leads me to the other topic, about modding. While there is definitely the potential for good mods there is also the fact others won't be as good, in which I won't enter in details, everyone has different abilities and experiences, but there also would be a pressure of the community to create Intense 2.0, which is a bit of an uncomfortable topic as a friend of Moto and he somewhat felt weird with "having to have the Intense baton passed upon him", even though it obviously won't be the case, Moto's mod is his mod and Intense is Intense. Anyway that leads to the last part, the community. The Rejuvenation Community is infamously toxic and while the Intense Elitism definitely was a part of it, it extends much more than that (with even an example in this exact thread, although I won't specify it is easy to see) from people that despise characters and want the entire planet to know to the Moderators themselves, being overcharged with the situation, accidentally making the situation even worse and resulting in a big mess with a lot of circlejerking. So, will removing Intense make the community better? I have no idea, I am not a fortune teller, but I assume it's just like cutting weeds on a farm, but not removing the roots and as Falirion said, using Intense as a scapegoat does not make things better regardless. Although reminder, even with all my points against it, this is Jan's decision and while I have the right to politely challenge it and show this side of the situation, he is free to keep his decision if he believes it is the right choice as I won't and can't change it.
  2. After reading all of this I honestly say, what a shitshow. So I would like to explain a few things all of it seems too confusing, my apologies if I somehow end up being rude. Ah yes, that very slow extremely powerful boosted by a seed Shadow Sneak from Aegislash with precognition about when to use King's Shield and when not to. Understandable. You know its still Shadow Sneak, it won't OHKO all neutral targets, also the AI is static and will always do the same thing, so you can simply predict the King's Shield and use for example Substitute or Bulk Up. Furthemore, you have been fighting Melia over and over for chapters now, its surprising that you can't manage her team. And about Spiritomb, a regular Intense rotation usually consists of 9-20 members, if you don't have anything that can at least check Spiritomb then you might have some struggles with team building Furthermore, I have seen a considerable amount of people doing Monotype runs or simply using the Pokemon they like and managing to beat the fight, even if with some struggle, so you are definitely not restricted to the same 5 Fairy Pokemon to beat it And why manipulating Fields, which is a MAJOR mechanic in the game and is one of the advocated focal points of the entire experience, is a lesser option than abusing them? Why not give the player an option to either be prepared to directly abuse Haunted Field and counter Spiritomb, OR give him an option to be prepared by having a fitting team in the box that can change the field to YOUR advantage? I do not understand this advocating of "less options = better difficulty". It doesnt have to be a singular solution. I am a player that prefers counters and deflects in fighting games and i like to play chess with black, and in the same vein, as a human, in pokemon i much prefer ruining advantage of the opponent instead of abusing it myself to a higher degree. And now forced fields like Misty Terrain and moves as such dont even override existing Field, which was, again, another viable strategy to counter a spot in the fight you had troubles with before. (Which i understand now that Indeedee and such are in the game, but still). You don't need to be manipulating fields, and you are in the same field as him and you have access to most of the things he have and more, fields are supposed to be a mechanic to make the battle more dynamic, not simply something that you need to kill like a cockroach. This is an equal fight on the same ground. Removing the field isn't a clever strategy, its just cheese because you put the AI in an extremely disadvantageous situation, that is one of the reasons the field overlay was implemented. From what I can see you simply are ignoring any argument that defy your point, this is not a smart thing to do, you are just being toxic and childish, if you don't like the new Intense you might have fun in Normal with the improved AI, or simply learn from your mistakes to see how you can succeed on Intense, but please stop arguing, you are literally saying the same thing over and over, escaping any argument that might contradict what you said and flee to another, it would be healthier to simply admit that people can make mistakes. This is not saying that either Intense or me are perfect, it definitely needs some changes and kinda agree that some fights need changes, I myself have complained about some things that made Intense less enjoyable, but always trying to give feedback in a positive way and being respecful, which has worked, things are definitely changing due to your comment and it will definitely have some repercussion which could definitely be controversial due to the many different opinions, from developers and players alike. It's ok to have opinions, but as I said before you should try a little better while arguing.
