    Tell us a little about yourself:I'm a 17 year old guy from the netherlands. I'm an relatively new player on smogon. I have been tutored before in round 55 by stone_cold but we didn't get much done due to his busy schedule. I'd like to get tutored in the art of battling since i keep failing to win.
    You make it quite impossible for us europeans to sign-up in time :S.

    Tell us a little about yourself: I feel like I'm a decent battler, but I struggle with making effective teams. I've never made it through the first round of a tournament. I also don't like using standards (in general).

    Tell us a little about yourself: I'm from Germany and play Pokemon for 2 years now.
    In my freetime I'm playing football or do something with friends. I want to improve my battling skills and reach a higher level. I like creative teams but most of them are not that solid and thats why I need some help in teambuilding.
    BW OU: Want to improve my teambuilding and playstyle skills because it is the most important tier at the moment.

    I signed up round 56 but missed the chance to get a tutor. :(

    Tell us a little about yourself: I'm from Germany and I still have to go school. My favourite subjects are maths, chemistry and physics. After school I want to study medicine. In my spare time I do athletics, origami (complex origami, not small boats and other easy things like this) or obviously play Pokemon. Although I haven't reached 25 posts yet (23, so close), I think I deserve to be tutored, because I'm really trying hard to improve my skill, and for this goal a tutor would be helpful. I'm highly motivated to learn new things. If I get a tutor, I hope to improve my battle strategy, and how to make good decisions while battling. A little help in the teambuilding section would be nice too.

    We have more than enough sign-ups for now! Thanks to all who joined. Expect tutor assignments to be up later today or early tomorrow!

    Look out for the ADV OU tutee tournament in a couple of minutes or so.

    2 hours later and I'm done! Trying to match up people by timezones + tier requests is quite the pain.

    I gave tutors to the first batch who were fast enough to sign-up, and more importantly, gave tutors to those who repeatedly kept missing out during previous rounds (which is quite a lot of people). I didn't really give tutors to those who kept signing up every round / receiving tutors every time, since there are a ton of other people who have been waiting a long time for a tutor, and they deserve a chance for once. I had some tutors take on two tutees this round as well, since we're really lacking in the active tutor department, and tried to fulfill as many requests as possible.

    If there are any problems, feel free to contact me. Good luck, everyone! I'll update the pairings on-site some other time.
