shoutouts Audiosurfer for the original OP

Art by Blue Frog

We at the Doubles subforum have some fantastic resources available for our players, which will be rolling out as the gen progresses. However, often the creation and planning of these things are unknown to the average user, instead occurring behind closed doors up until the thread is actually posted in the forums. After considering many possible solutions to this issue (such as hub, which was ultimately decided to be too cumbersome and lacked the necessary visibility) we ended up deciding on this thread. So what is this thread exactly, you ask? Simple. The Doubles Newsroom is, as its name implies, a place for you, the end user, to get news on things such as upcoming projects, updates on existing projects, discussions on large-scale tier issues, or requests for feedback on potential ideas. In short, it's like a Doubles news station, an easy place for you to stay abreast of the tier's happenings without having to scour the entire forum. Hopefully you find this thread every bit as useful and interesting as we hope you will :)

If you'd like to have a specific piece of content features in this thread, simply PM one of the Doubles Forum Mods (kamikaze, Memoric, Level 51) and it will be considered for posting here. If you have an idea of what you'd like talked about but don't have a specific post written out for us to share here, just contact one of us with the idea anyways and we can see how to best highlight it. Just as this thread is meant to help people learn more about Doubles-related matters, so too would we like relevant topics to be celebrated and highlighted.

Doubles Council Changes: Welcome MajorBowman, Stax!

MajorBowman and Stax have been added to the Doubles OU council! Both have proven to be top players in the tier; MajorBowman had a good run in SPL7 with a flawless 4-0 record while Stax has been pretty much the Doubles OU player of 2016 with his stellar tournament finishes. It's also cool to note that MajorBowman and Stax are the 2nd and 1st placers of the Doubles Open, respectively. Welcome to the team :)!

MajorBowman is now a Doubles OU Forum Moderator!

One of the standout players of the last and current generation, MajorBowman has been deeply involved with the community since late 2015 until now. He has shown commitment to the community and metagame as shown through his contributions to Social Media. In addition, he has been hosting projects for a while now, such as co-hosting DLT and keeping track of SPL 8 Doubles teams and replays, and has been a good poster in subforum discussions. He is a nice guy with a level head; thus, the Doubles Moderation Team welcomes him to their ranks.

Welcome aboard :)!

DPL Host Wanted

We are currently looking for a host to host the upcoming Doubles Premier League. It will begin in early April and go on for 6 weeks. Signups will likely start near the end of this month or beginning of next month.

If you are interested in becoming a host you can send a pm to convince the Doubles Forum Mod team why we should pick you to host DPL. Relevant experience in the area of tournament hosting is encouraged. Please include kamikaze, Level 51, MajorBowman, and Memoric in the PM.

We will take applications for at least the next week and it will be open until we find a qualified host.

The DOU Council is now branching out!



talkingtree has been added to the DOU Council!
He has proven to be one of the most active users in the community as well as one of its most tenured contributors, him currently co-heading DOU C&C and having already spearheaded various community projects. His activity and knowledge of the metagame should prove invaluable to the council and community as a whole, and we welcome him with open arms! :)

marilli, miltankmilk now on DOU council!

marilli and miltankmilk have been added to the DOU council! Both are currently one of the top players of the metagame, showing exemplary performances in the recently finished Snake tours. They have also proven to be intelligent and well-reasoned in their metagame opinions, and this will serve as an asset to the council and community's growth. We welcome them both with open arms!

***

Shay it ain't so

On another note, shaian has stepped down from his position of DOU council member. In addition to being one of the tier's sharpest minds with his well-detailed reasonings, he has been one of the Doubles community's biggest contributors of all time, once leading DOU C&C and being a DOU tutor as well as being the first ever Official Team Rater for Doubles. His presence on the council will be missed.

New Doubles OU Tier Logo


Doubles OU had been using the the same logo made by Bummer for over 4 years since the BW Days back when it was still known as Smogon Doubles

We thought it was much overdue for a new logo, so we approached Bummer again to see if he could take on the task

Though he said he would be busy for awhile, we decided to wait for him regardless and it was well worth it as he produced another masterpiece

As they say, you can never rush art.
