Since none of the players involved in the remaining two fixtures (Quantum Tesseract vs. Balanced Freakmons, RNGIsFatal vs. GmU pokeboss9) have claimed activity and none of the managers have made substitutions both games are now dead, meaning both teams tie 2-2 with their opposition. I'll update everything shortly. Expect Week 3 to start soon.
1. If I was some third party person looking at the replay, it would seem as if you were looking for a way out of the game since you were in a losing position, the dc was exactly what you were looking for. You should probably rephrase what you said to "rather than relying on dc from my opponent I blame myself for not finding a solution"
2. If you read the tournament rules, you can clearly see that winning by timer isn't accepted if the reason is a disconnection. It is expected from all tour participants to have read these rules, and from your action it is clear you did not since you obviously would have known that even if the timer hit 0 you still wouldn't have won that match.
Never say stupid things - Some big man or big fish may feel provoked.
"In other tournaments, if a player disconnects and contends that they could still win, the optimal solution is to recreate the exact situation the disconnection occurred at during the battle. If this is not feasible due to unreasonable battle length, highly improbable circumstances, or some other reason, the player who did not disconnect may choose to rematch with either the same teams or (the option to use) new teams."
In other news I've been too harsh earlier with my decision to void Quantum Tesseract and Balanced Freakmons' game. After some reconsidering I'm going to award Quantum Tesseract the activity win over his opponent. In retrospect it's unfair to Quantum Tesseract and his team to be punished for Balanced Freakmons' lack of communication and activity, which is evident in their VM conversation. My sincerest apologies for the confusion.
Old gen BH can be played on the ROM server.
BH UU is to be played in [Gen 7] Balanced Hackmons, whilst abiding to this banlist.
Quick edit: The new USUM Pokemon (Blacephalon, Naganadel, etc.) are NOT ALLOWED in BH UU this week. Replays are mandatory.
Deadline: December 1st, 11:59 (GMT +0)
Concerning Substitutions: If managers wish to make a substitution, they must tag everyone involved (that includes the opponent, the player being subbed out, the player being subbed in and the opposing team's managers) so no-one should out of the loop and the players can begin scheduling immediately.
Concerning Submitting Teams: PM myself with your team prior to playing your match. Use https://cryptobin.co/ as opposed to pokepast.es or any other alternative to send your team in as you're able to secure said team with a password if you're afraid of anyone looking at it. Why? This is for if any player DCs during their game, after which I'll need to verify players are using the same teams in the event of a recreate. If you DC and you have not submitted your team you'll lose. This is, of course, not necessary but if you do submit your team you protect yourself from the opponent taking a quick win :[.
SM BH: sugarhigh vs. Pikachuun - This'll either be close or one side will bring some meme set that the other isn't prepped for at all, I'm excited to see this game
SM BH: Ztest vs. Ransei - Good player, not "unbeatable" and Ransei isn't a pushover either but Z has experience that Ransei doesn't. At the same time I said that against RNG too soo.
