    Why a manager should draft you: i feel that this is my last year of vgc. Was 50 on showdown until a day ago and the rush was brill. That's why i love it. Im 31 next week and will soon be trying to start a family. I have played the game for many years and it has been a big influence in who i am. I would like an opportunity to go with a bang and say good bye to the game i love.

    Significant time missed: (here you list time that you can't play for the duration of the tournament), i.e holidays, exams etc.) Nah dog, I just work a full time job.
    Your first VGC format: 2015
    Notable results: Ha! I finally won a PC in Arizona a couple months ago.
    Why a manager should draft you: Let's not beat around the bush. I am not your someone you draft for a lot of money. Yet, while I don't compete seriously at real life events, I do still take playing seriously. You'd draft me because:

    A) I am as spirited and loyal as it comes. Draft me and you'll have someone who is always there for the team in whatever capacity is needed. Plus I'd be super active in the team chat because I have a lot of time on my hands.
    B) I'm a decent player, and I probably have a decent amount of potential with a bit of real practice from better players. Same goes for team-building. While I may not be able to come up with the best concepts myself, I can help refine.
    C) I watch a lot of VGC, and I can probably help in scouting players/teams/trends/all that good stuff
    D) I can write power rankings on TT with your team at the top. But only once and then the whole list will be wrong. Except for us, of course.

    Anyway, while I understand you will have other drafting priorities, I would be super pleased to find my way onto your team. Also there's a Gliscor attached. I drew it for the MBL, but don't take it personal, NPA.

    Your first VGC format: 17
    Notable results: 19th Liverpool & 19th Singapore( Top 32 )
    Why a manager should draft you:
    I know I start VGC in 17, in fact Leipzig was my first regional, but since then I am constantly improving really fast. I am a physics student, working in theoretical physics, so I consider myself good at logical thinking. I invest a lot of time in Pokemon to make up the fact that I am really new to the scene. I am a decent Perish Trap 18 Player and I can be really funny I think. It would be a pleasure for me to get this opportunity to improve even more and to meet new people since besides the competitive aspect, I met some really cool friends on every regional I went up to now and I think this is great.
    Cheers EiMaGi VGC

    Your first VGC format: VGC 17'
    Notable results:
    -
    Top 64 STL (17)
    - 5 MSS top 8 finishes ( 1 win) ,
    - x-3 in the London Challenge
    - 87/400 with no regional appearances
    Why a manager should draft you: I think I offer a competitive drive that you can't get from other players, I love to have a good time while at the same time being serious when needed. But above all else I like to win. I'm an excellent teammate and friend, and I'm confident that week in and week out I can do whatever is asked of me to get my team the win.

    Significant time missed: idk im in college lol sry in advance - ideally nothing besides not being able to play during class (may have a day or two absent due to flying)
    Your first VGC format: vgc 2010 lets GOOOOOOOO #veteranplayer
    Notable results: top 2 at norcal (2012, seniors) + top 4 san jose (2013, seniors) / as of recent I went x-2 at SJ 2017 after minimal practice due to college
    Why a manager should draft you: I really hope that my view of the game isn't bad after playing it for like 7 years lol

    on a serious note, I played League at a high elo and I feel as if many of the mindset + attitude + objective views of the game apply to mons, giving a perspective that is outside of the box. the ideas/mentalities that I have presented have been very well-received in the past and have led to success for players. in addition, I have played VGC for a long time so I feel that my experience performing at a relatively high stakes level will allow me to not choke / overthink when I am (hopefully!) playing in an important match such as npa. also, I have been spamming bsd / 18 since the open ended and I feel as if I have gained a good knowledge of the meta / trends throughout the past few months.

    i will admit that my motivation has been pretty low since 2013 but having surprisingly decent finishes at the open + SJ and a natl dex format has really reinvigorated my passion for the game. i hope i can express it through the national pokemon association


    also let's be honest anyone that's played this game for more than 3 years without quitting is obviously in it for the social aspect LOL- for that reason I hope to create stronger bonds with my fellow members of the community and enjoy pokemon alongside them! I view myself as a very positive and helpful teammate, whether I'm starting or on the bench. i am also really inspried by my friend trey craft's NPA experiences and hope that i get as much out of my season as he did for the past few years <3

    as an aside i am a notorious VERY Fast Breeder if we ever happen to play on cart so i can provide mons (maybe if you're nice to me during the season ill continue to provide after npa ends :D :D )


    here's my favorite pokemon: verizon wireless if we dont havenet neutrality

    Your first VGC format: 2014
    Notable results: Top 4 senior CP 2017 (North America). Utah Regionals 1st, Oregon Regionals 2nd, Seattle Regionals Top 4. Top 8 NA Internats. I haven't been in masters very long but i managed to go positive at both London, and the large London MSS.
    Why a manager should draft you: NPA 6 was definitely a much needed wake up call for me. I really wasn't as good as I thought I was.. And I redemption for that. I want another shot to show everyone that NPA 6 was just a fluke for me. I feel very confident that if I got drafted again, I wouldn't have a repeat performance. I've noticed alot of improvements in the last 9-10 months, and hope to keep on improving. I'm very good at working in a team environment, and bring a very unique and fun personality to any group i'm apart of:).

    Why a manager should draft you:
    I was a decent player in my first year and I'm hungry for more success. I would like to work as a group with other players to build teams; I've built all my own teams so far and I think I can come up with interesting ideas. Save your money and take the 3k pick.
