    NeverUsed Ladder Tournament

    1. The qualification period for the NU Ladder Tournament will run for a total of 32 days with 8 day cycles, which is ~1 months to put things into perspective. After each 8 day cycle, the top 4 accounts that appear on the leaderboard (using ELO) at the end of the cycle with the sign-up criteria explained in #2 below will qualify for the playoffs of the NU Ladder Tournament, which will be a 16 man, best of three, single elimination tournament. The tournament is not seeded. Pairings for the qualified 16 are randomized. The ladder is not reset after each cycle.

    2. In order to sign-up for the NU Ladder Tournament, FOLLOW THE SIGN-UP FORMAT BELOW AND REGISTER YOUR FRESHLY MADE ALT(S) ON POKEMON SHOWDOWN USING THE FORMAT BELOW:

    [NU#] ForumNameHere - the "#" denotes a letter of your choosing, and "ForumNameHere" obviously denotes your forum name. You are allowed up to 3 alts total for this tournament, each of which must follow the aforementioned format.

    Here's an example sign-up post for you all to follow:

    YOU MUST SIGN UP WITH YOUR FRESHLY MADE ALT BEFORE STARTING BATTLES WITH IT. Your alt must be registered on the day of sign-ups or onwards to prevent people from registering an account beforehand and laddering with it to gain and unfair advantage. It's very easy to check when an account was registered and we will be checking to make sure people comply. You will be allowed to include 2 to 3 alts in your sign-up for this tournament.

    3. Since there is a possibility we will need substitutes for the tournament, we'll take the 5th and 6th people in each period (so 8 total) and randomize them as subs for the 64 man tournament. If you qualify as #5 or #6, you are still able to participate in other cycles and try to qualify for the top 4 of a given cycle.

    4. Once you make the top 4 and qualify (this does not mean making the top 4 at any given point during the cycle, it means being in the top 4 at the end of the cycle), you’re qualified for playoffs. You are free to ladder any other week you wish. However, making the top 4 more than once won’t give a player anything other than personal satisfaction and bragging rights. If a person qualifies again during a week after their initial qualification, the newly qualified account will be skipped and the next unqualified account will be selected from the leaderboard to participate in the tournament.

    5. In the case of one person having more than one account in the top 4 during any given cycle, their highest ranked account will be the one to qualify and the duplicates will be skipped. Let's say one person in the top 4 holds positions #1 and #2 on the ladder during cycle 1 with the alts he signed-up with. In this scenario, #1 will be the only account of theirs to qualify and #2 will be skipped over because they are the same person as #1. In this same scenario, position #3 on the ladder will be the second qualifier of the cycle and so on.

    6. Any person found cheating will be disqualified. This means not giving out free wins (boosting), multiple people on the same account, etc.

    7. Prize is still being discussed. PM Raseri and Zebraiken if you really need one.

    We are currently in CYCLE 4, which means that after 8 days [ending on Tuesday, November 4th, 6:00 PM Eastern time], the top 4 accounts that signed up for this tournament following the proper sign-up criteria explained in #2 will be qualified for the eventual playoffs of the NU Ladder Tournament.
