    It's over! D/C rate of 65%!! (I honestly think I have the highest D/C rate on Smogon. Anyone with a higher rate can let me know, seriously.)
    Someone start a thread to collect D/C rates to average them out and let us complain about it. :)

    Also, hax.

    PungentFruit I battled you!!!! Didn't recognize Mario.

    Everybody's posting their teams, eh?

    Being pretty new to Doubles, I'm hoping there's an autumn tournament this year for me to use everything I've learned.
    Final Record: 32-14-5 Rating: 1673

    Sadako (Mienshao) @ Focus Sash
    Jolly, female, Regenerator
    252 Atk/252 Spe/4 Def
    High Jump Kick
    Protect
    Fake Out
    Rock Slide

    One of my usual leads, able to Fake Out most Pokemon and give her teammates some sweet extra time. HJK is HJK... On a brighter note it's funny how many Volcarona leads totally forgot Mienshao learns Rock Slide. Regenerator can be surprisingly useful in Doubles.

    Colossus (Regigigas) @ Leftovers
    Relaxed
    252 HP/216 Def/42 SpD
    Thunder Wave
    Knock Off
    Return
    Confuse Ray

    The star of the show, Colossus (named after Rhodes, not his species) earned plenty of respect by paralyzing almost everything he got his mitts on, slapping away more than a few lefties and Berries, and crushing frailer foes with Return. Confuse Ray is my panic move which helps my odds a little and sometimes coerces switches. One of my fondest battles saw Gigas take a Water Gemmed, Drizzletoed Hydro Pump on the opening turn and surviving until the end of the match.

    Imperator (Gliscor) @ Toxic Orb
    Impish, male, Poison Heal
    154 HP/100 Atk/160 Def/96 Spe
    Earthquake
    Protect
    Ice Fang
    Feint
    An experiment, both in EVs and Feint. I found his defenses a bit thin sometimes, but Feint was incredibly enjoyable when I predicted right. I didn't end up using Imperator much due to the number of Rain teams though.

    Riptide (Sharpedo) @ Dark Gem
    Mild, male, Speed Boost
    252 SPA/136 Spe/116 Atk
    Crunch
    Ice Beam
    Hydro Pump
    Protect

    Dark Gem Crunch made short work of Jellicent, Musharna, Lati@s, and plenty of others. Riptide enjoyed Fake Out and Parafusion support since those were her only insurance for living another turn! Against teams without Mach Punch she was a real terror.

    Magnum (Scizor) @ Life Orb
    Jolly, male, Technician
    252 Atk/252 Spe/4 HP
    Bullet Punch
    Bug Bite
    Superpower
    Protect

    Gasp! A fast Scizor! He'd be a nice surprise if he didn't leave so many full-health Terrakion with 2 HP left...

    Hatchet (Staraptor)
    Jolly, male, Intimidate
    252 Atk/252 Spe/4 Def
    Brave Bird
    Return
    Close Combat
    U-Turn

    Jolly Intimidate Staraptor missed as many kills as he made! Still incredibly useful though, he could handle Conkeldurr, Hitmontop, and even Excadrill due to Intimidate making its Rock Slide too weak to KO. Also a nice revenge killer, especially for Garchomp who's immune to Thunder Wave.

    One of my last battles was against a guy with a Transform Smeargle and a FEAR Aron. Damn that was a hard battle.

    Yeah, I ended up with 7 battles recorded, and just redowloaded my first 3 to upload later.

    I guess I'll put all the videos IDs that I have here:

    16-21089-97755
    65-35133-70159
    17-11901-25317
    51-76534-42635
    99-85554-77816

    Can't really remember what happened in each of them off the top of my head though, aside from the last one which I just uploaded to the server.

    Had an absolute BLAST at the end of that!

    I got paired with very few high-ranked opponents in this tournament - I just did a count-up and I only faced 4 opponents (out of 80) above 1700, with only Peterko being above 1750. As such it was tough picking up points, and I was fail as ever, losing against some 1400s and keeping me firmly cemented in the 1600s. My target was 1700, and as unlikely as it was seeming, I thought I had nothing to lose. At about 10pm (3 hours before the end) I had a rating of 1639, and thereafter I won 9 straight matches and got to 1695. I started a battle with 10 minutes to go, and after overcoming a scary Sleep Powder Venusaur...a DC. Thanks a million to the Wi-Fi system which suddenly decided to become speedy and find me another battle in about 30 seconds, and RIGHT as my watch chimed 1am, rating 1489. As you can imagine, a tense battle...I pulled off the win taking me to 1702. So happy!

    Really need to be off to bed, but I'll post some nice Battle Video numbers at some point, as there were some pretty epic matches flying around =]

    Well done to all those who kept the code of honour and didn't disconnect, and commiserations to those whom I know will be disqualified through no fault of their own.

    49-19-13, final rating (and peak rating!) of 1702. VGC12, you were fun!

    This was really exciting! I've never taken part in a tournament before so I definitely wasn't prepared for it...

    And it was a bit of a bummer that only 5 people out of 15 didn't disconnect on me when I won.
    (I don't get how people can do that, I disconnected on a few people because my wifi signal died out and I felt terrible!)

    But I'm totally going to be prepared for the next one!

    didn't get to play as much as i would've liked and finished with a record somewhere in the 1660s... oh well!

    it was fun while it lasted, too bad 3 of the 5 days were school days :(

    congrats to all the smogoners who did so well!

    Let's see...

    I had a perfect record, 100% wins (+1 disconnect but I won that too) (6-0-1)
    Points is ~15XX
    Only 1 close game (Both of us got lucky, but I was luckier)

    I'm pretty much the best there is /(not really)

    My battles on friday (I think it was friday) weren't counted after the ratings were shown again, so I was back at 1690 instead of around 1890 on saturday, got to around 1750 I think, got DC'd by 11 japanese players in a row and just quit then. It was fun though, I even got to face matty once!

    Got what I wanted out of the tournament, it was really fun. I think I ended up with 1675 after 75 battles. Peak was somewhere around 1800.

    I don't know why so many of you got DC'd on, I had that happen maybe 5 times?

    I couldn´t play the last 2 days, because of a strong earthquake here in Chile.
    My final score was around 1680, and my star couple of the team was Breloom + Hitmontop. I can´t count how many trick room teams they managed to screw up with a simple combination of Fake out + Spore. This really helped me to steer my direction to a better team.

    But of course! Been collecting videos the whole way through, in between my own battles no less. ;)

    Quite a lot in the last 24 hours though! It's been crazy! Videos everywhere! Going to go through them and attempt download now, then will post which ones failed.

    If anyone doesn't want their video as part, just let me know and I'll exclude yours. Will post up how many from each user I've got over the course of the tournament. There's also been a few posted as '57-XXXXX-XXXXX' so obviously unable to get those either; perhaps they've been posted properly and haven't noticed yet since the tourney ended.

    [​IMG]Latios (M) @ Dragon Gem
    Trait: Levitate
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
    Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
    - Draco Meteor
    - Psychic
    - Protect
    - Tailwind

    Just standard. Loved Dragon Gem Draco Meteor. He had the habit to go before other lati@s. Only twice the other was faster. The first hit my terrakion and not my latios, the second missed her DM.

    [​IMG]
    Ferrothorn (M) @ Chople Berry
    Trait: Iron Barbs
    EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SDef
    Brave Nature (+Atk, -Spd)
    - Thunder Wave
    - Power Whip
    - Protect
    - Gyro Ball

    Only used against rain or hail teams. He was awesome then. Almost never used Thunder Wave, so I should probably change that. Full attack, because he still is really bulky. Chople Berry > Occa berry. Now he will live every fightingmove lol (even an fighting gem close combat from terrakion :P)

    [​IMG]
    Rotom-W @ Choice Specs
    Trait: Levitate
    EVs: 228 HP / 252 SAtk / 28 Spd
    Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
    - Thunderbolt
    - Hydro Pump
    - Trick
    - Hidden Power [Ice]

    nobody sees choice specs coming. It hits so damn hard. He also was really bulky.

    [​IMG]
    Volcarona (F) @ Sitrus Berry
    Trait: Flame Body
    EVs: 140 HP / 252 SAtk / 116 Spd
    Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
    - Bug Buzz
    - Rage Powder
    - Heat Wave
    - Protect

    This one was so much fun. Rage powder fake out's of hitmontop, and hitmontop letting burned was cool. This one was also really bulky, living ones a rock slide from garchomp with 1HP.

    [​IMG]
    Terrakion @ Focus Sash
    Trait: Justified
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
    Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
    - Close Combat
    - Rock Slide
    - Protect
    - Taunt

    Just a Standard mon, but he works really well. Taunt was awesome against TR and against mons who are tricked a specs on by Rotom W, and then locking themselves in a non attacking move.

    [​IMG]
    Scrafty (M) @ Lum Berry
    Trait: Moxie
    EVs: 220 HP / 252 Atk / 36 Spd
    Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
    - Crunch
    - Drain Punch
    - Detect
    - Fake Out

    Just Standard, but really usefull. Nothing too say about this guy really.


    The team worked really well. Didn't really expect it to. It was just as fun as the autumn friendly, I my rating was almost as high as then. Overal an very fun tournament with not many DCs on me.

    You probably didn't notice, but I battled you too. I haxed you a bit (your latias won the speedty with my latios but her DM missed, so my Latios KOd your latias with dragon gem DM.

    Well, it's all over now. Now it's time to tally up my scores and write them in. I think I played about well over 40 matches, with a RIDICULOUS D/C rate :/

    Well lets see. The thing says I only have 11 battles and I played 24, so my recorde would be a lovely 10W-1L-13DC. I didn't play for like the last 3 days. Too many disconnections. My team was:

    Thunderus@flyingGem Modest
    Haxorus@ChoiceScarf Adamant
    Jellicent@SitrusBerry Quiet
    Heatran@FireGem Quiet
    Metagross@OccaBerry Brave
    Scrafty@ChopleBerry Brave


    It was quite a odd team at glance. It was essentially Slow Goodstuff that could fall back on trickroom if needed.

    It's been a massive tournament. Amazing teams, amazing wins, all awesomeness. Although I ended with just 1535, I'm happy, 'cos this is my first experience in double competitive battling. I made my team in 5 min. by editing the move-sets of my singles team a bit. I didn't really expect it to oust opponents with 1700+ ratings, but it happened. My team nearly touched 1600, just to fall by 120 points, and then recover a few later.

    Anyway, I'm a bit stuck now, since I can't unlock my battle box since the server is under maintenance. Does anyone one know how to get the results of the competition and unlock the battle box while the server is under maintenance?

    Uploading my three videos from the tournament, these are all battles in between 1650-1800 rating. Enjoy!

    A close game vs DCHI(Japanese) using a Trick Room+Sandstorm team, enjoyed it a lot! :
    98-68466-03329

    Me vs CommiT* Sandstorm team. I misplayed and got outplayed:
    66-52221-44566

    Me vs BRIANNA using not so common pokemon that gave me a lot of hassle:
    33-29998-11176

    Wish I would've saved the battle against Dozz which I remember was a close one, but already had a good battle saved at the time. :(
