    Effective immediately for the rest of the round

    It has come to my attention that some users have deliberately been teetering close to DQ before posting, sour over a petty ruling, & want to hold up the tourney as a result in order to "prove a point". This has been proven when I asked the offending users about the issue & the issue has been deliberately evaded, all but confirming their guilt. This is a display of poor sportsusership & it will not be tolerated. Because of this, the Player DQ Time for all unfinished matches for this round will be shortened from 5 days to 3 days. If this persists, then the DQ Time can be shortened even further, or even tourney-related sanctions against the offending users.

    There are many users on here I have asked who just want the round to be over & done with, & when some users refuse to cooperate, that wish cannot be delivered. I have done this in the best interests of getting the tourney moving, & if users continue to hold up the tourney even further, then I will take action.

    Carry on as normal, additionally, apologies for the quadruple post. Now let us just finish this round.

    Congratulations to the Harbingers on their win! Although an overturned DQ influenced that... :S

    With only two Apples vs. Soldiers matches left, I want to know who is interested in reffing next round. Please VM me if you are willing & what format(s) you are willing to ref. Only 6 battles next round, but the earlier I get a ref list, the better.

    Also, if someone can somehow get to the predictions data flame has been holding, it would be great.

    Cheers!

    Just a Couple of quick reminders...

    1. If you are interested in reffing a Tourney Battle next round & you are a. Active, b. willing to do flavour, & c. experienced enough, please contact me. I have 4 confirmed, & 2 in reserve in case no one else wants to ref. Please also specify which formats you are willing to ref as well.
    2. If your team has won their rubber, do not forget to claim your prizes in the Tourney Prize Thread. Need to teach your Pokemon an all important move that may come in handy next round? Then claim it.
    That is all for now. Also, congrats to the Apples on their win. Now one match remains...

    Cheers!

    Additionally, apologies for the Double-Post, but remember to read the above reminders.

    Now we get to the interesting matches.

    Team jassmashpwn vs. The Harbringers
    -Singles: smashlloyd20 vs. Athenodoros
    -Doubles: Pwnemon vs. LouisCyphre
    -Triples: jas61292 vs. Leethoof

    Atheno over smash, he knows his team too well with their builtness. However, the stress of playing three matches solo will best him in the others, combined with underrated players in jas and pwnemon.

    The Carnivorous Apples vs. Cruel Britannia
    -Singles: Flamestrike vs. Alchemator
    -Doubles: Its_A_Random vs. Objection
    -Triples: Engineer Pikachu vs. Dogfish44

    IAR too boss, Alch better than he admits, epic tie for a three way finals.

    Round 3 predictions:
    jassmashpwn vs. The Harbingers Athenodoros
    smashlloyd20 vs. Athenodoros (Atheno's too good)
    Pwnemon vs. LouisCyphre Athenodoros (I saw what happened last round when Atheno had to take over for Lou.)
    jas61292 vs. Leethoof Athenodoros (I really have to see how this plays out. Normally Flying vs. Rock does not bode well for Flying, but Atheno has to play for his entire team.)

    Then there's Apples vs. Brits. As much as I hate the Brits, this is pretty even, and the winner of this is pretty much gonna win.

    Confirmed: Leethoof will be playing for himself.

    The true battle to watch in Harbingers vs. jassmashpwn is "Lou" vs. Pwnemon.

    The other battle to watch is Engineer Pikachu vs. dogfish44. The winner of that battle will move their team into the finals to a likely win.

    We really should do a Bronze Medal final for the sake of it.
