@carter_esque: This website's thread system makes no sense. Why bring up an old discussion that already has debates and responses to it? Why not have a fresh discussion?
True. That being said, having one thread makes things a) a lot cleaner, and b) a lot easier for newcomers to be directed to - I wanna know who beats who, it's easier to go to a single thread, than two or three.
Also, using the Flash in battles is like peeing blood into a piranha infested river, if you catch my drift. Flash fanboys = bane of the battle forum on this website. He stomps everyone, apparently. Stupid, I know.
