Spinda Reset

Starting next month, the entire ASB will be undergoing a reset. This includes everything: stats, squads, sigs, points and ref grades. EXCEPT, we've decided that, to keep you reffing in the meantime, you WILL be able to keep your SP after the reset. We don't want you to lose all those hard-earned points that you've worked so hard to accrue! SP rewards (slots, level-ups and legends) will not be kept, but you will be rewarded half their value in SP at the time of the reset.

Keep reffing and see you in May!

We've discussed it for a while. At first, we were all pretty hesitant because it'd be a big step but we think now that it's the best way to get the league active again. If we have vets all working towards a goal again, they'll all battle more, boosting activity greatly.

Well, this will only mean that on the first of may(first of may), outdoor reffing starts again.

Well. I call April Fools, since it's still before midday in America. And that is an excellent job with the colours in your opening post, Jeri.

However, on the off chance that this does happen (in the future), you realise that if you do a reset without changing the league's structural make up then you will drive away more activity than you bring in and will solve no problems? For example, the economy doesn't work (yes I know I said I would suggest things on this), meaning that no-one is going to bother reffing post-reset. The level acquisitions are ridiculous, meaning that everyone with any sense will pick fully evolved and very powerful TL1-2 pokémon and immediately get back up to being the strongest trainers (and you've got a great list of Dave suggestions so you wouldn't even have to do any work on that) - I would take about a month to get back to TL2, no questions asked). The health/energy problm was never really solved because no-one took any action on it, so battles are still going to be stupid mismatches of attacks and no strategy. The league lacks PR, meaning that attracting new members doesn't happen, and its organisational structure is laughable.

I mean. I actually think a reset is a good idea. But if you just do a reset and change nothing else, you'll kill the league.

...

Also, let us keep our legends :p Perhaps make it so that people can keep such things but stipulate that they can only be used by people who are TL3.

For the record, I still think this is a bad idea.

Also you're a douche for choosing to announce this on April 1st. Low blow Jer.

This.

Also, I'm excited by the idea, but I'd like to see at least a change in Pokemon Level Acquisitions, and a true standard as far as Health / Energy goes. Weakness / Resistance calculations, too.

...

Being serious about it is my April Fool's joke... Right.... RIGHT?!

Not sure if you're joking or not. >.> There were better days to announce this, if serious.

I was so close to TL2

or that could be the point?

also, why wouldn't people keep badges in the reset, or would everyone have to reapply to be GL's again, even if they were one before?

I believe this is a april fools thing but just in case

edit, saw the joke, touche Jeri

So if a man spends five years of his life building a house from the ground up and now it's finished spends considerably less of his time on manual labour, would you burn his house down so he can start again?

If this is real, surely public voting would make more sense.

Wow, I almost took this seriously. While I, personally, wouldn't mind starting over if everyone else did, doing so at this point in time would do way more harm than good. There's much better ways to raise activity in the league, and scaring away tired vets isn't one of them.

ITT: "I know this is a joke, but here are the reasons why a league-wide reset is unfeasible."

Everyone knows its bad idea, including Jeri. This is why it is a joke.

Oh a reset? Well...I...uh...I was going to reset anyway so meh :p.

In seriousness, I figured something would be done for "Aprools" as we're calling it now. Just wasn't sure what. Good job starting a bit of a tizzy, Jeri.

Yeah but it has its merits as an idea, so you've got to at least pretend to take it seriously!

I'm ok with this happening, on the grounds that Tdos retains all of his stuff and gets to laugh at everyone else more than he already does.

I don't give a flying poop if there's a reset, as long as I haven't won any battles yet.
