OU Elite 4 Challenge Dark Horse Edition ELITE 4 APPLICATIONS Approved by NixHex The OU Elite 4 challenge is coming! This thread will function much like the UU Mafia except that it will be an ongoing competition. If a player manages to beat all the Elite 4 that player will become the champion. The champion may be overthrown by another player if he/she manages to beat all the Elite 4 and the Champion just like in game. Players will challenge the "Elite 4" in best of three rounds. Once a player has beaten an Elite 4 he may then proceed to challenge the next one. If a player loses they must start from the very start again. Simple so far? good. The catch with this tournament is that after a player has beaten an Elite 4 the player must replace a pokemon in their team with another one below 40 in the usage list. Anyway further details will be provided when the official thread begins. I am currently accepting Elite 4 applications. If you wish to be a part of the Elite 4 you must nominate yourself. applicants are required to be competent players, notable contributers and well known players in general. applications should include a brief paragraph as to why you think that you should be accepted. Attach ladder peaks if you see fit. They should also include your hours of availability for matches to be scheduled. Also on applications please put your name in bold somewhere on the post for me to sort through easier. Please do not nominate yourself if you do not think you fit the criteria. Having your nomination backed by someone else also helps. A total of 20 "Elite 4" will be chosen. These members will be chosen at my discretion. That said, if you feel you are right feel free to nominate yourself, I am eager to get this challenge started. If you weren't chosen to be an Elite 4 don't worry! Stage 1 of the nominations is now over, we have selected the initial 4 Elites however the nominations are far from over. Stage 2 is now commencing. Stage 2 is a little more complicated and will be completed in 2-3 weeks or if a champion has emerged. In stage 2, 16 more Elite 4 will be chosen bringing us a total of 20, 4 for each region. The Elite 4 regions will then be reorganised to suite time zones. These Time Zones are: Kanto: GMT -4 to -6 Johto: GMT +7 to GMT +1 Hoenn: GMT +1 to GMT -4 Sinnoh: GMT +12 to GMT +7 Unova: GMT -6 to GMT -8 Applications should now include which region you plan on applying for. Simply look at the above chart an choose your suited time zone. If your region is full you can still apply to be a sub. Once all the time zones are filled the challenge will be a lot more streamlined and organised. We have a considerable amount of Elite 4 to pick so keep the applications coming!
