    For the sake & sanity of everyone wanting the tourney done, the DQ of all matches is now being shortened to 3 days from 5, effective immediately from the next post in each of the remaining battles. These matches have raged on for too long.

    Also, anyone who has reffed a tourney match this tourney interested in reffing a match in the final round should contact me, though I will only be picking the refs I feel are the best suited for the job.

    Congrats to Cruel Britannia & jassmashpwn on making the finals!

    Make sure you guys claim, & anyone who has reffed a tourney match this tourney interested in reffing a match in the final round should contact me, though I will only be picking the refs I feel are the best suited for the job.

    The final round will start soon.

    EDIT: Prediction Bracket
    [BOX]Final Round:

    Team jassmashpwn vs. Cruel Britannia
    -Singles: smashlloyd20 vs. Alchemator

    -Triples: jas61292 vs. Dogfish44[/BOX]

    My predictions:
    -Singles: smashlloyd20 vs. Alchemator
    Whatever our singles may lack in skill, they make up for in mons that do werk. "Alch" will have a hard time answering smash's superballin' team of sexy awesome.

    -Doubles: Pwnemon vs. Objection
    As much as I'd love to bold my own name here, I just can't do it in good conscience. When I signed up for this tourney, I had been in ASB for less than two months. I won the last round with a 24 move Sableye and I don't expect to do it again. I didn't even have six pokemon to sign up with .______.

    -Triples: jas61292 vs. Dogfish44
    Why the FUCK did we let a flying type specialist be our triple battler

    It's called confidence, guys. You should try it (however foolish it may be).

    I'm still holding out hope that IAR will let us update our mons' profiles to match the non-tourney versions

    Final Round:

    Team jassmashpwn vs. Cruel Britannia
    -Singles: smashlloyd20 vs. Alchemator
    Comments: Atheno and all his goats could not overcome smashlloyd. IDK what Alch can do.
    -Doubles: Pwnemon vs. Objection
    Comments: Objection beat IAR. In 4v4 Doubles. Pwnemon beat Lou. With an oversight on Lou's part. Kinda obvious here.
    -Triples: jas61292 vs. Dogfish44
    Comments: Pwnemon says that Jas lacks luck. Well, dogfish wishes he lacks luck. He has plenty of luck in Tourney---the bad sort, that is. We only need to look at his semifinal match. Watch as his Cyclohm gets flinched to death by Tomohawk's Air Slash. Oh, and then comes a triple Rock Slide crit flinch, which by the way has a 0.0006591796875% chance of occurring.

    Overall comments: NO HONOUR

    No.

    Also, in the interests of getting this thing moving on, I am giving 48 hours as of this post for everyone still in this who has not claimed yet to claim. The same applies for referee's willing to ref, though I forgot to mention: since this is finals, I expect the referee's to provide plenty of flavour, since this is supposed to be professional stuff. If I do not get enough refs that I deem suitable to provide flavour & be a good ref, I may have to step in & ref one of these finals.

    Finally, yes this is the finals, but I want these finals to be done on time, which means I will be putting my foot down on inactivity. The 3 Day DQ Time will be in force, & you exceed this, I will VM/PM/tell you on IRC to hurry up & issue actions/ref the match. Unless you have a suitable excuse other than something along the lines of "I am still deciding" (In the case of battlers), you will have 24 hours to post before I/Your opponent calls DQ/I get a subref. This Tournament has lasted long enough. What I do not want is for this round to last in excess of 2-3 months. I also do not want people deliberately waiting until the last moment to post in their match. That sort of behaviour will not be tolerated, & may result in the extra 24 hour warnings being revoked, or much worse (DQ). The message I want to stamp across is that I do not want a repeat of the last few rounds. Everyone wants this Tournament to end, & I am going to ensure a speedy finish to this thing.

    That said, good luck Team jassmashpwn & Team Cruel Britannia in the finals, make sure you guys claim, & may the best team win. Make sure you post on time to avoid anything bad happening to you/your team.

    Cheers!

    Okay, everyone has claimed, Referees have been allocated in the OP, so send teams to the designated ref, blah blah blah. I am also disappointed at the lack of willing refs... :(

    Nevertheless, let us rumble...And not for 2+ months.

    And after a tumultuous final round, Team jassmashpwn—consisting of smashlloyd20, Pwnemon, & jas61292—were victorious over Team Cruel Britannia 3-0—Consisting of Alchemator, Objection, & Dogfish44—And have as a result, are the champions of the First (And probably only) ASB Team Tournament!

    PRIZES

    Team jassmashpwn
    smashlloyd20: 1× Master Ball
    Pwnemon: 1× Master Ball
    jas61292: 1× Master Ball

    Team Cruel Britannia
    Alchemator: 10 UC
    Objection: 10 UC

    So once again, congratulations to Team jassmashpwn on their win, better luck next time Team Cruel Britannia, & thanks to everyone who took their time to participate in the Tourney, whether it be as a participant or as a ref, or as both. Without you all, this could not have been done! Also, thanks to Flamestrike for setting this up. It is such a shame you vanished mid-Tournament, we miss you all... :(

    Otherwise, until the next ASB Tournament, see you all then! And once again, congratulations to Team jassmashpwn!

    Cheers!

    haha, i still don't entirely believe it. When we first saw the bracket, I said "we have a decent chance of making semis; I'm ok with top four." For a good month, the channel topic in #jassmashpwn (i'm going to miss that little channel) was "we made it to semis, now time to say our ggs." it's been an amazing experience, and i can definitely say that smash and jas are total broskis. Who knew that this tournament ending would be so nostalgic? It's been a wild ride.

    also congrats to jas for being the only person to correctly predict the outcome of the finals~

    I think this is the first time I've agreed with Ullar in weeks.... gah, I'm going to need some stress related therapy.

    Anyhow, I've already tossed my thoughts up in the trips, so yeah!

    Ten months of watching you all piss on yourselves was definitely humerous.
    Interesting to see how much has changed since this started, considering like three or four of the teams that signed up had Ditto.

    Oh and the fact that some of the teams just completely don't exist anymore.
