    Signups | Round 1 | Round 2 | Finals

    Tiers

    RoA Olympics finally returns! The second edition quadruples the number of tiers from 5 to 20.

    RoA Olympics 2 features the following tiers:

    6x Ubers tiers: RBY Ubers / GSC Ubers / ADV Ubers / DPP Ubers / BW Ubers / ORAS Ubers
    6x OU tiers: RBY OU / GSC OU / ADV OU / DPP OU / BW OU / ORAS OU
    6x UU tiers: RBY UU (BL) / GSC UU / ADV UU / DPP UU / BW UU / ORAS UU
    2x Popular tiers: DPP LC / ORAS Doubles OU

    For RBY UU (BL), see on-site OU and Ubers lists to see what Pokémon are banned. For GSC & ADV UU, see on-site BL lists additionally. The rest are challenge options on PS!, which must be used to play these battles on.

    Tournament Format

    There will be a mini tournament for each tier (all in the same thread this time), all of which will have 12 spots, 1 spot for each team. All of these mini tournaments will be single elimination, first-to-2-wins (bo3 wins) every round and players who progress through 2 rounds will represent their teams in a 3-way-finals to determine who receives gold, silver and bronze medal sprites - with gold worth 3 points, silver worth 2 points and bronze worth 1 points to a team in the overall standings. Pairings will be random each round. There will also be a generous deadline each round with minimal extensions.

    There will be 12 teams: Asia (includes Oceania), Europe, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Latin America, North America, Spain, UK, USA East, USA West.

    Each team will have 10 players and each player can be picked for a maximum of 3 tiers. 2 tiers per player is average (20 tiers) while players playing less than 3 tiers can be substituted in as long as the maximum tiers they play is still 3. Captains can play.

    Signup Example:

    Nation: UK
    Tiers played: All except RBY OU
    Inactivity: None
    Requested Captain: p2

    Signups will last for roughly 2 weeks. After a week I will confirm the captains and any downsize of the tournament. Good luck everyone!

    Lutra please consider GSC UU, an established metagame, over "GSC no lax" which hasn't been played seriously since the last time it was on the RoA featured ladder.

    I checked the ban lists from Mount Silver and Smogon seems to make GSC UU the same, so I've replaced GSC OU without Snorlax with GSC UU.

    Edit: Also changed ADV BL to UU.
