    Hello again guys, here's another idea to increase activity here in RU.

    How to participate:

    - The RU Mini-Tournaments are run just like an official Smogon tournament. *The first thread/post posted is the sign-ups. *During the sign-ups you post "in".
    - The Rounds will last exactly 3 days from the second the round is posted here in the RU sub-forum. *At the end of the 3 days, I will call any unfinished matches and move to the next round, no exceptions.
    - All of the Rounds will take place in this thread, so keep your eyes peeled for when the round is over and the next round has started!
    - Each mini-tournament will consist of 16, 24, or 32 participants, no more than that or it stops being mini. *First 16 are in for 16- and 24-man tourneys with the last 9 randomized for 24-man tourneys, and the first 20 are in with the last 12 being randomized for 32-man tourneys. *Each sign-ups will try to achieve 32 participants, but if it isn't possible, then it will be a 16- or 24-man tourney with the first 16 that signed up in.



    RU Mini-Tournaments Rules:

    - Battles will be played on Pokemon Showdown!.
    - Standard OU – Gen V RU. Refer to this page and this thread for more information on usable Pokemon.
    - Any Pokémon that is not considered Uber, OU, UU is allowed (refer to the banlist below)
    - If during the middle of a round, a Pokémon, ability combination, etc. moves into or out of RU, those changes will be effective starting in the next round.
    This is a single elimination best of one tournament.
    You may switch your team each round.

    Clauses:

    - Sleep
    - Species
    - Wi-Fi Battle

    Banlist

    Moves:
    All moves that increase Evasion only (Double Team, Minimize)
    All instant OHKO moves (Fissure, Guillotine, Horn Drill, Sheer Cold)
    Shell Smash + Baton Pass on a single Pokemon

    Abilities:
    Moody
    Drizzle + Swift Swim on the same team
    Drought
    Sandstream

    Any Pokemon in the OU, UU, or BL tiers are banned.

    Other things to note about RU Mini-Tournaments:

    - All Rounds and tournaments will take place in this thread, so keep your eyes peeled for the start of new rounds and sign-ups.
    - Each tournament can and probably will have a quirk dealing with the RU metagame. *We'll start with a standard RU tourney. *Following tourneys will have weird quirks like "you must have 3 Electric-types on your team" or "no top 10 Pokemon."
    - Because most of these tourneys will have weird quirks, please save your logs and be prepared to take a screenshot of the battle should you suspect your opponent of cheating. *However, I do not want your logs and you don't have to submit your teams to me or whoever is running the mini-tourney.
    - Because all of the mini-tourneys will take place in this thread, there won't be more than one tourney running at a time.
    - Any of the above rules are subject to change depending on the tourney.

    Possible Rewards for *multiple* winners:

    - Custom title under your forum name
    - HOPs (Half-ops status (%) in #rarelyused)

    If you have any questions/concerns please don't be hesitate to post them below.

    Offense be Damned!! (imo)

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    This is a standard RU tourney with the following Pokemon banned from play:
    - Druddigon
    - Durant
    - Moltres
    - Nidoqueen

    People have been claiming that offense is too dominating. So we'll get rid of some of the top offensive threats and see what happens...
