    BST Tournament Round 1
    Approved by Jackal
    tawp64 is Co-Host

    Intro: This tournament will test your skills at teambuilding by limiting the BST of your team of Pokemon every round. Will your strategy be having a powerhouse or two, with several weaker Pokemon, or will it be building a team that is evenly balanced? The choice is yours. Each round, a new BST will be given, and you may not exceed that limit. For example:
    BST Limit: 1000
    Team: Scizor and Metagross is illegal.
    Team: Smeargle and Hippowdon is legal.


    Rules:
    Sleep Clause
    Freeze Clause
    Self KO Clause
    OHKO Clause
    Species Clause
    Evasion Clause
    No Exceeding BST limit
    No Ubers
    You MUST send in teams before the battle (either tawp64 or AlphaJolt is fine).

    This will be a single elimination tournament. Inactive players will be subbed out. Uncompleted matches where both competitors were active will be decided by coin flip. Each round, the BST limit will drop. These are the limits for each round.

    Round 1: 3400
    Round 2: 3200
    Round 3: 3000
    Round 4: 2900
    Round 5: 2800
    Round 6: 2700
    Final: 2600

    The round has been extended to Thursday, September 23 at 7:00 PM (GMT-6). Please finish your battles by then.

    Teams are due by Thursday, September 16 at 7:00 PM (GMT-6). I'm sorry for not posting this earlier. Players who have not sent in a team by then will be subbed out.

    Do we have to send in teams this round? It's pretty much a normal OU battle unless you are planning on using something such as Regigigas or Slaking.

    Noticing that I accidentally put one person in the parings twice. Golden Sun is now facing D0nut Eater instead of Eraddd, who is facing Cristall.

    You forgot to input "Round 1" on the title of this tournament. You should also specify that since this is Round 1, the total BST limit is 3600 so people don't get confused by thinking it's a typical "OU" tournament (since your title has "OU" on it for no reason).

    Not to mention that the BST limits for the later rounds aren't even drastic of a change when changing the interval by about 100~150 total. The reason is that most standard OU teams won't even be close to a base stat of 3600. The total BST of the six most popular used OU Pokemon (Heatran, Scizor, Gengar, Gyarados, Rotom-A,and Tyranitar) is 3260. You are able to use these very popular and powerful Pokemon for up to three rounds in a team. Round 1 doesn't have a limit (I think it should because the purpose of the tournament is to have some sort of limit regardless of the round). While these close interval ranges per round isn't changing the structure of this tournament in comparison to a regular OU tournament, but only in the final rounds (where we actually see some change) and the final round only consists of two players. Thus, I believe that the intervals should be widened in order to "spice" this tournament up more and not have another boring OU tournament since there are already two OU tournaments going on.

    Also, sending Krabbby a message. Will get this done asap.

    Whoa the Base total limits are different than the sign up threads. Anyways finding danman shouldn't be a problem, so I'll have my team in shortly

    Seriously, these new base totals are way to easy. I was looking forward to this tournament because it would but a challenge in team building, now its basically a standard OU tournament.
