    Introduction

    Retro Cup of Pokémon features all tiers retired from World Cup of Pokémon. That means this year, it will just be an RBY OU tournament. Each national team is allowed 3 players, plus 1 substitute. The first 16 teams (corresponding to those who applied for this year's World Cup of Pokémon) to successfully apply will be the teams to make up the tournament. For the first round, players will be randomly assigned into 12 groups of 4, with the top 8 teams with the most wins collected. The seeding tiebreak will be the highest ranking points (6 points for sole 1st, 4 points for sole 2nd and 2 points for sole 3rd, shared between spots if necessary) within the group, just like WCoP and then randomization as the secondary tiebreak. The qualifying tiebreak will be full 3 vs 3 man matchups involving the tied teams. From Round 2 onwards, your team's captain will be asked to submit your lineup in order from spots 1-3. The rest of the tournament will be single elimination 3 vs 3 man matchups. Every tournament match will be first-to-2! (best of 3 excluding ties).

    predictions (open)

    Canada (2) vs (1) US West
    Genesis7 (65) vs (35) dice - Gen7 was impressive round 1, he should win this one off of more RBY experience
    soulgazer (45) vs (55) Lavos - should be a great match, both are really solid
    Texas Cloverleaf (70) vs (30) psychicmewtwo - idk about psym2's skill level in RBY but Texas is probably top 5 rbyers at the moment, he should take this one

    Europe (3) vs (0) UK
    MetalGro$$ (60) vs (40) p2 - p2's shown decent stuff in round 1 and metal is kinda prone to tilting esp if he gets lucked, p2 takes this if he takes game 1. Metal is better otherwise
    Melle2402 (75) vs (25) 6A9 Ace Matador - melle stomped R1 and AM had two dead games. lol
    Mister Tim (55) vs (45) 1 True Lycan - closer match than some may think, 1TL is good and if he knows how to play vs ice spammers, which I think he does, he can take this

    France (3) vs (0) Germany
    Diegolh (60) vs (40) Lusch - Diego took down soulgazer and Karp round 1, proving that he hasn't lost his touch despite the recent drop in activity. Meanwhile Lusch hasn't been on his SPL form in a while and looked strong but beatable in R1. Should be a great set
    Peasounay (75) vs (25) Mael - Peasounay is incredible, and I've not seen much of Mael in RBY
    thelinekioubeur (55) vs (45) Bedschibaer - These two already met in R1 and linek won 2-0, edging towards him because of that. I think the two are pretty much on the same skill level otherwise. Another great set.


    lots of players that I like watching and playing against, should be a fun tournament :D glhf

    So we are out, and it's mostly my fault. Asking for a personal matchup and miserably fail to win it, is prolly the worst thing possible.
    Sorry peas, I really wanted to win it w/ you.. Well played lusch, there were clearly a skill gap yesterday and the better player won. Looking forward to play vs you again (vermillon?).
    Ggs germany, rooting for you to at least win the tournament.

    I'm hoping to be able to join the next season on PP; Vermillion is pretty save I guess.

    Hey Lutra can my opponent and I get an extension? He was just subbed in a couple days ago, and we are several hours apart so our best chance at overlap is the weekend.

    Yeah, due to conflicting timezones vakatalesau can't stay up as late as needed until Friday and it doesn't seem like the players can ever be both available until then.

    Ok, extension until weekend is fine. I can always put up UK vs Germany earlier and give a longer deadline if need be tomorrow.
