    ASB HIGHLIGHT MATCH
    WEEK ONE - PART ONE
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Welcome, one and all, to the greatest bi-weekly spectacle of ASB talent: the ASB Highlight Match! Highlight matches pit two of the top ASB players against each other for all to see! These matches will test the skills of the players chosen, and will give us a chance to see who comes out on top! Best of all, YOU are the one who gets to choose the participants! That's right, you will be voting on who gets to play who in these matches. It's a fun time for both the players and the spectators. You don't want to miss this battle, folks!

    BATTLE RULES/REWARDS

    The format for each battle will always be different (save Disqualification rules). It will always follow the normal battle formatting rules, which are as follows:
    Prizes consist of normal battle counters (that's 2 TC per trainer and 1 EC, 2 MC, 1 DC and any gained KO Counters per participating Pokemon). The winner receives 2 universal KO counters to spend as well and, of course, will be recorded as a Highlight Match winner!

    WEEK #1: 6/6/2011
    OUR MATCH: [BLANK] vs. [BLANK]

    There are two polls, with the winner of the first facing the winner of the second. The first poll will be open until June 8th at 11:59 EST. The second poll will be open until June 10th at 11:59 EST. The battle will start on the 11th.

    Good luck battlers and spectators!

    It's up to DarkSlay, but I wouldn't mind anyone else reffing this (I certainly wouldn't want to ref each one).

    As for this one, I'll leave it up for someone else to ref it.

    I feel very intimidated to be up on the poll with the other people (where is Deck).

    Also, I have the same question as darkamber; I'm assuming that Flora will, being the Head Ref and all, but you never know.

    Are Pokemon that are currently RP'ing/in tournament ineligible to battle?

    EDIT: Colossoil is definitely not the 2nd best CAP. Swap it out next time :p

    To answer your question about who is reffing, I was going to ask Flora if she was available. If she wants to pass on this, no worries - there will be a referee for this match. Guaranteed.

    As for Deck...yeah, that was my bad. .-. But do not worry: I will simply add Deck into the second poll to replace the person who won this poll. So if you want to vote for Deck, that option will be available for the next poll.

    Wouldn't a Bold vote poll be the better way to do this? Just my 2 cents...

    Same comment as Darkamber here. Heck, there are quite a few notable users who aren't on it. (Dmtc, Venser, Objection, DECK). Maybe a nominations threa might also do the trick as we get more ASB players...

    lol watfuck am I doing up there. Not that it matters much, it looks like we know who's the first battler.

    Although my first two were good, I''d be happy to battle with them. In fact, I've been trying to get a battle for them for a while.

    ...dangit, it appears I am not considered notable...ah, well. I'll fire up my Krill-sat between now and a few weeks...and not fall quite so easily to DarkSlay's Pyroak.

    I voted zarator-his tourney performance means we need to make up for it somehow.

    My vote goes to DarkSlay, because he's really awesome, and Flamestrike's not on the list ._.

    I voted for SDS, just so y'all know. He's got some strong mons and he's a very smart guy - the battle will surely be interesting.

    Also,
    I reffed that match. iLol.

    I also voted SDS, and him Vs. Rising Dusk would be pretty epic I think.

    I'd support having a nomination thread/phase with Highlight Matches. There are a number of other battlers that weren't an option that I would like to see battle.

    Also, GO ALCH!
