    As we all know, the first ever ASB tournament will be starting very soon. But what's a tournament without a little betting on the side? Here's how this works:

    1) Post here agreeing to sign up. The cost is 2 TC. Once you do so I'll enter you onto my spreadsheet. NOTE: If you are not on my sheet by the time I decide to close the signups (probably in 48-72 hours, I'll give a more concrete time once I figure one out), no matter how many times you fill out the form you will NOT be counted!

    2) Once signed up, fill out the form that will be posted here with the Round 1 matchups by selecting the people you believe will win each matchup.

    3) Each round is worth more points, similar to the way the Smogon Tournament prediction tournament works. The first round will be worth 1 point per correct prediction, with the value per prediction doubling each round until the finals, for which the values haven't been determined yet. Note that you do not lose points by predicting wrong, so fill out every prediction, you have nothing to lose!

    4) Naturally you wouldn't be expected to pay to get into this if prizes weren't being offered. First prize is a whopping 35 TC, with second being 18, third being 10, fourth being 5, and fifth being 2. In the case of a tie number of successful predictions will be used, followed by successful non-DQ predictions. If that's a tie I'm not sure what we'll do right now, perhaps only look at later rounds, but we'll cross that bridge when we get to it.

    The link for the predictions form will be posted here as soon as I can get it ready after the matchups are posted. It'll be open for about 48-72 hours (probably the same as signups), then I'll put up a post showing how many predictions there were for each player. In the meantime this can also double as a smack talk/discussion thread about the tournament since talking in the battles themselves is prohibited (at least it usually is). One last note, make sure to actually have and deduct the necessary TC! I'll keep this post updated with players and scores, as well as links to update posts.

    1) Dummy007 -> 77 points, 36/9, 27/8 w/o DQ

    In it to win it (unlike the tournament itself).

    Paying 2 TC, which is okay since I have another 2 after that anyway and I didn't have any plans after the Embirch I just bought.

    Meh, might as well join in. A lot of predictions should be fairly easy (i.e. DarkSlay going up against a team of unevolveds that don't have massive type advantages.) Besides, 2 TC isn't that bad in regards to the tourney.

    *gets Syclant to freeze two trainer counters together, before chucking them at the pot with Ice Punch*
