Introduction | RBY [1-2-3-4-5-6] GSC [1-2-3-4-5-6] ADV [1-2-3-4-5-6] DPP [1-2-3-4-5-6] | Playoffs

It is time for arguably the most popular and prestigious tournament in RoA, RoA Tour, to be born.

RoA Tour will be a series of Live Tournaments starting Friday June 9th. The tiers played will be all the OU generations not included in Smogon Tour: RBY OU, GSC OU, ADV OU and DPP OU. The Live part of the tournaments will last 8 weeks where everyone will have the opportunity to earn points corresponding to the rounds they win in. Once this phase is over, we'll move to Playoffs with the 8 best players of the tournament. The winner of RoA Tour will obtain the glorious Pink mini-trophy (
) that they can display in their signature and a past gens tournament user banner under their custom title for half a year.

For this 1st edition, I will also be giving a $50 amazon gift card to the owner of the pink mini-trophy.

All the tournaments will take place in the RoA Room Smogtours on PS!, unless stated otherwise, with signup threads started in the Live tournaments forum. The times at which they will start are as follows:

6 pm EDT / 12 am CEST (Saturday) on Fridays.
4 pm EDT / 10 pm CEST on Saturdays.
12 pm EDT / 6 pm CEST on Sundays.

One may join all tours unlike Smogon Tour.
Winning the first 3 rounds earns you 1 point each.
Winning 4th, 5th or 6th rounds earn you 2 points each.
3-way finals earn you 1 extra point if you win the tournament.

Highest points for a tournament in a weekend will determine the overall qualifying standing.

No alts, ghosts, asking for wins and offering wins.

For playoffs, highest seed picks 1st and 3rd tiers, lower seed picks 2nd tier, in a first-to-2-wins (bo3 wins) series, with Self-KO clause off.

Edit2: deleted the "in" posts around when it was tweeted.

Added this in the OP because I didn't realize it wasn't matched to Smogon Tour points exactly: "3-way finals earn you 1 extra point if you win the tournament."
