    All players must sign up if they wish to play in the Smogon Premier League, even those who will eventually be retained to their past teams. It is important to note that the Smogon Premier League is an 11 week event and that the activity level of a player is significant. Do not sign up to play for a team if you do not intend to see the tournament through to the end. This includes maintaining a competitive attitude if your team is already eliminated from playoff contention. You never know whether or not winning your end-season matches will make you a more valued player next season, so even if your team isn’t necessarily in the playoff picture anymore, there’s always value in playing your best. Failure to complete matches in a timely manner consistently may result in being barred from entering the Smogon Premier League in future seasons.

    The format for signing up to play in the Smogon Premier League is as follows.

    The sign-up list will then be taken and sorted into appropriate lists for each of the 10 metagames.

    Guidelines for Players:

    - DO NOT signup if you cannot commit to the entire season, which will run from January until the end of March. If you know in advance that you will be gone for a significant period of time (such as for exams, vacation, etc.) then PLEASE make note of it in your post so managers can plan accordingly. If I hear that any player knew in advance they would be gone for a significant period of time and did not notify the League in advance then action WILL be taken in future SPLs and potentially all tournaments.

    - Plan to participate in your team's IRC channel. If you do not have IRC, please see the page on Smogon's main page on how to access IRC. IRC is what makes SPL fun. It helps you test, get to know your teammates, find out when battles are happening, and for general trashtalk in #spl. Speaking from experience, if managers know that you do not use IRC, you will have an extremely small chance of being picked.

    Signups will last until the auction day, which will most likely be the week of Christmas, which gives plenty of time for players to signup and tryout for various teams.
