    Point Buy Tournament II

    General Tournament Rules
    Signups
    Round 1
    co-hosted by Earthworm

    ALL PM'S MUST BE SENT TO EARTHWORM, NOT ME.

    This event will test not only your skill at battling, but also your predictions, and your ability to build teams under strict guidelines. You will have a budget of ‘Points’ that you will be able to use to ‘Purchase’ Pokémon for use in your team. Not happy with your low Point total? Bet on other matches to try and get some more of those Points you love so much!

    The Rules
    • This will be a single-elimination tournament
    • Battles MUST be played on Shoddy Battle.
    • Self-KO Clause
    • Only Pokémon UU and below, or Pokémon bought, can be used
    • Sleep Clause
    • Freeze Clause
    • Evasion Clause
    • OHKO Clause
    • Species Clause
    • Battle Timeout must be ON
    • No Scouting

    The Point System

    Each entrant will be given a starting grant of 300 Points. Over the course of the tournament, you will be using those Points to buy Pokémon to use. The Points can also be used for betting on matches, both your own, and those of others. Keep in mind that this will be a long tournament, though, and so don’t blow all your points at the start! Those that successfully manage their Points will have a large advantage in this competition.


    Buying Pokémon

    As the tournament progresses, there will be opportunities for you to purchase Pokémon from the OU and BL tiers. Every Pokémon in the OU and BL tiers has been assigned a Point value, as seen below. The value listed is for buying a Pokémon for 3 matches. If you want to buy a Pokémon for 2 matches, it only costs 80% (4/5) of the price. 1-use Pokémon are a mere half of the price listed. Keep in mind that a 3-match Pokémon bought before round 2 will expire after round 4, whether or not you used it in all of your matches!


    Prices

    These are based upon the usage statistics on the Standard Ladder in June. They will remain fixed throughout the tournament. All UU Pokemon may be used without being purchased.

    Betting

    You will be required to make a bet on yourself against the House every round. You must make a bet of exactly 50 points on yourself each round. This is to ensure you always have at least 100 points going into a round.

    You may also choose to bet on matches you are not a part of, if you like. First of all, all bets made on other matches must be exactly 50 Points, no less, no more. When you bet on a match, you will pick who you think will win the match. After the round, all the bets from which you made points out of, will give you a certain amount of points. Bets may be made publicly (in-thread), or privately (by PM). Even private bets, however, will be announced in-thread by Earthworm or myself, but we will not announce the name of the better, just the amount, and on who.

    don't know how i got an activity loss when me and bigfoots were talking for a while trying to get the battle done but we just weren't free at the same times....that makes sense

    would also like to add a ps that if a whopping 16 battles are incomplete it's probably in the best interest of the tournament to extend the deadline a couple days rather than flip coins and give "activity" wins based on incomplete information

    We can only see VMs and not PMs and thus we are unable to know if you've contacted each other aside from VMs, and none of you have posted about that in the thread. Thats how

    uh sorry to come out like this to your thread, but why exactly did hunt advance over me. I saw him on IRC one day and told him to play me for this tourney, but he didnt have a team ready, later I built my team, but I just didnt see him on IRC at my times to play me anymore.
