PUPL III (Banner TBD) The PUPL has finally arrived for its 2017 run! In this thread the potential managers will get to sign up and formats for the tournament will be announced. There will be 6 teams in this PUPL, so 6 managers will be chosen from this thread. The season will start early to mid September. If you want to manage, all you have to do is post and explain why you are fit to manage a team. Managers will be selected based on PU experience / Smogon experience / PUPL experience / PS as well so convince me (Akir the Host), galbia, and Anty you have that. Managers will be given the opportunity to buy themselves from the auction for 10k points so they can play as well. Additionally, managers will be expected to: Send in a roster every week PICK A GOOD TEAM NAME Keep activity high in your team / make subs when required Example sign-up (note that doing a better job is expected): Example (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Example (open) Example (close) Hello, my name is Akir and I would like to be the manager for the team Wang-Bang Wobbuffets. I am a PU council member and blatantly stole the DPP PU idea from multiple people before me. Additionally I have placed ok-ish in previous PU tournaments and I topped the illustrious GSC STABmons ladder this month. I would be a good manager because I too can put 8 people in a list and send it to the host. For this iteration, PUPL III will have 8 slots to fill: SM PU SM PU SM PU SM PU ORAS PU BW2 PU DPP PU ADV PU Click on this sentence for more information on the PU Oldgen slots/metagame. PU Oldgen resources are currently undergoing revamps to prepare for PUPL, and are expected to be completed by the time of the auction. There is no deadline for manager sign-ups at the current moment, however posting earlier increases your chances to be chosen. Good luck!
