And not to mention there is no way we can possibly deal with that, other than having a high suspicion index. But really, a second account won't do much, other than having an always-present training partner. I mean, two accounts won't make it easier to write stories, heh.
EDIT: Well I could see a potential FFA partner, two-Park Runs at the same time, 3k + starter Pokémon... and potentially a free ref to cheat on battles. But that's too much trouble ^^

Yeah, no one's going to go through all of that work just to cheat. They'd be more successful just using that time to ref and earn money the normal way.

I suppose ultimately this thread is to address the issue of fairness. How do we make it so that the BMG members don't feel outgunned when compared to PE2K members? Is there a way or is any method we propose going to be too much a hassle? Should we put more focus on helping BMG members reach the top so that, in a short time, they can fight on the same level as us?

In response to you, HKim, I really don't know why people even bring up the whole "unexperienced" factor. Why should we should treat the BMG members any different than we treat new members here? Do they not have the same amount of inexperience? Do they not need to read over the same rules new members here do?

Answer: we shouldn't treat them differently.

Yeah i think we should, maybe give BMG members a little bigger startpack than what we pe2k members get for a limited period of time. maybe give them 5k instead of 3k or two starters instead of one. maybe we could do some giveaways aswell to level the playingfield.

and if we do that then i dont see the reason for having separate gyms.

Between those two I agree with Shock. There's absolutely no reason to treat new BMG members differently than new PE2K members. Anything we give to one we should give to both.

I agree with Shock, this should just be treated the same as if there was a sudden increase of members joining here on PE2K.

If we somehow knew that 20 people were about to join our URPG, would we start handing out extra cash and more pokemon?

Obviously it might take a while for BMG members to climb up the ranks. In my opinion, pushing them to the top quickly is a bad idea because they won't have the same knowledge as someone who worked their way from the bottom. Otherwise, they'd be gym leaders with powerful pokemon, but they would have next to no strategy or skills to use those pokemon.

Just my two cents .

Perhaps a special event for new members over BMG AND over PE2K, such as a:
"Newcomer tournament!"
Admission criteria: You may only enter if you have ONE Pokémon.
Rules: Choose other 2 first stage rental Pokémon (with a limit on WHICH Pokémon one can choose). 3 vs 3, DP, no helds, all clauses on, using your only Pokémon.
Prize: 1st place gets both rentals, 2nd place gets one.

there should also be an extra rule, like only people that are totaly new to urpg, so people that are restarting wont join and beat everybody with their superior strategy and knowledge. again only my two cents (though i think ive given about a quarter by now :P)

I doubt anyone would want to restart for a couple of free Pokemon. (That they may not even get.)

Okay, I was thinking, maybe we could have some experienced URPGers go over and join BMG URPG so that they could help lead bulbagarden in the URPG and give a good example of how everything happens in general. Y/N?

Also, if we can battle the BMG URPGers, where are the logs gonna go? D:

Radical Idea alert.

We have a backup forum right?

It might be wise to move things such as stats and logs to that or some other medium, and just require that everyone refer to that for logs and stats.

I seriously doubt having two different forums simultanously having logs and stats would be the easiest thing in the world to maintain, but... if you could consolidate everything that has to be refered to constantly for some manner or another, that would be easy to keep track of...

Eh, not really, for you only have to refer a viewable-by-everyone page, either you link to a thread or another, and having everything on a single forum will not shorten that step.

Like I've been saying but nobody has seemed to notice; What's the point of logging on two different forums? Just tell people tio log all their battles on pe2k or on BMG. It's really not as complex as everyone is making it out to be.

I believe you're all getting ahead of yourselves now too, but whatever
