    Introduction

    The old gen team tournament you've been waiting for, for so long... finally returns! This time around, the qualifying season has expanded to 8 teams! What's more, a semi-finals is introduced, as well as a new generation, ORAS OU.

    The format will thus consist of 2 spots of RBY OU, GSC OU, ADV OU, DPP OU, BW OU and ORAS OU best of 1 for each team in their weekly match up, with 7 weeks of qualifying, followed by a seeded semi-finals (top 4) and then finals. Managers and assistant managers will not be able to play. Dead games will be declared and battles ending in a tie will be not replayed (both are worth 0 points). Teams will receive 1 point for a win, 1/2 a point for a tie and 0 points for a loss at the end of each week. Individual wins, Individual win percentage will be the tie-breaker for qualifying for the playoffs.

    The winners gets the possibility of displaying [​IMG] or [​IMG] in their signature, and the top ranked player in a tier can display [​IMG] or [​IMG].
    Additional Tiebreaker (open)
    In the event of a playoffs tiebreak, management of both teams will rank their preferred tiers from #1-#3. Points will be assigned to the ranks in the following way: Higher Seed (#1 or #2): #1 - 100000, #2 - 1000, #3 - 10, #4-6 - 0 | Lower Seed (#3 or #4): #1 - 10000, #2 - 100, #3 - 1, #4-6 - 0. The point values are arbitrary but represent the relationship of higher seed > lower seed > higher seed > lower seed > higher seed > lower seed in terms of weighting. The 3 tiers with the highest number of points will be selected for the tiebreak set and managers will then choose any 3 unique players from each of their teams to play in the determined tier spots. If there's a tie in seeds that can't be broken, the same process will be used but with equal weighting of 100, 10, 1 and the 3rd tier will be decided at random if a tie persists.

    GGs genny and squad, fairly sad that we couldn't perform well enough to take this series, and Pyrites were definitely the toughest team in the tournament.

    still very proud of our players and glad I got to work with everyone, all of whom I'd gladly be a teammate of in any other tournament

    shoutouts (open)

    Typhlito - Super glad I got to assman for you, you are great at drafting and such a nice person! Definitely gonna KIT after this tour, and take our revenge next year ;)
    Zokuru You surprised me the most this season, with how good your stall builds are and how well you play the game- be it with your own stalls or my hyper offense etc. I know you'll find success on smogon if you keep at it!
    obii was so glad to have you as a teammate and a pal, you're hilarious and a great mind, and I would want nothing less than to be your teammate many more times
    LuckOverSkill best BWer I've ever laid my eyes on.
    JACOB So glad you reminded me to buy you mid-draft, you kicked ass this season, and ur my bud. Maybe if you stop getting so unlucky you can be good noob
    ADVANTAGE -Snow Glad to have gotten both of you, you're both so nice, active, and great at ORAS. It's a shame tennis decided to give up on OU near the end, and that snow had a few rough games, but I have no doubt you'll both find yourself in starter spots next spl
    PDC Thanks for trying to help carry me in stour and being a reliable starter here and oupl! definitely hope to team up again
    Mister Tim Melle2402 Texas Cloverleaf Thanks so much for always getting your games done and teams built, not all of you had the best records but you all impressed me no doubt, sorry I couldn't hep more in RBY/GSC D:
    Contact Lord Ninjax Mindnight Having you guys as subs was awesome, all 3 of you were among the most active, even if you didn't get very many chances to play :(. Keep working hard and you'll be starters for your respective teams soon <3
    Lavos Spawn Flares. Thanks so much for helping when you could, despite not being part of the team.
    and even though im not tagging anyone else, I still enjoyed teaming up with the rest of you all, although we probably didn't talk as much as we could've for whatever reasons.


    GL pyrites in finals!

    edit: also forgot to thank Lutra for hosting this tour (almost?) all on his own, I think it turned out great despite what finch may tell you man

    Gg at all it was a good experience, although I played only 3 weeks and I got stolen the first game, I liked our team, although I did not help a lot (saw my bas lv In English) Good luck to the rest of the teams. And go Pacifidlog Typhloons. o/
    And thx at Typhlito and z0mOG for buy me.
