Welcome to the debut of the Smogon Doubles Tour, a core tournament in the 2017 Doubles Circuit. This tour is an analog of the Smogon Tour but featuring the 3 most recent generations of Doubles OU formats as opposed to OU formats.

Smogon Doubles Tour is a series of Live Tournaments which will be starting on June 2nd and will consist of the 3 most recent DOU generations (SM, XY, BW). The Live Tour portion of the tournament will last 9 weeks and everyone will earn points based on their weekly performances. After the Live Tour phase, the Top 16 players in the standings will advance and compete in a single elimination Playoffs to determine a Champion.

These tournaments will take place on the smogtours server. There will be 3 live tournaments of the same generation per week, with the generation rotating between weeks for a total of 9 weeks.

Week 1: SM DOU (6/2, 6/3, 6/4)
Week 2: XY DOU (6/9, 6/10, 6/11)
Week 3: BW DOU (6/16, 6/17, 6/18)
Week 4: SM DOU (6/23, 6/24, 6/25)
Week 5: XY DOU (6/30, 7/1, 7/2)
Week 6: BW DOU (7/7, 7/8, 7/9)
Week 7: SM DOU (7/14, 7/15, 7/16)
Week 8: XY DOU (7/21, 7/22, 7/23)
Week 9: BW DOU (7/28, 7/29, 7/30)

The times that the Live Tours will start are as follows (Note that these are different than the Smogon Tour)
  • Friday: 9pm EDT (GMT -4)
  • Saturday: 11am EDT (GMT -4)
  • Sunday: 2pm EDT (GMT -4)
You will only be allowed to join 2 tours per week and only your top score per week counted. You cannot make a new account to circumvent the rule either. Also, you are not allowed to ask for wins, offer wins, or interfere in other people's battles (ghosting them or their opponent). If you do any of the aforementioned, be prepared to get infracted and potentially banned from our Tournaments. We will take retroactive actions if needed.

The Points System that will be used for each live tour is the same as the one that is used for Smogon Tour. The current standings for the Smogon Doubles Tour can be found here.

Because this Tournament is a part of the 2017 Doubles Circuit, it will also award Circuit Points. The circuit point payout at the conclusion of the entire Smogon Doubles Tour including playoffs is as follows:
1st: 20 CP
2nd: 16 CP
3-4: 12 CP
5-8: 8 CP
9-16: 4 CP
17-32: 2 CP
33-64: 1 CP

For anyone interested in hosting any of the Live tours feel free to either post about your availability on this thread or by sending a collective PM to kamikaze, Memoric, MajorBowman, Level 51. Keep in mind that hosts will not be able to play in the same tour that they host but because one may only enter 2 tours per week there is still some leeway for hosts to still compete in the tour.

Good luck to all players!

Hey everyone, here's the spreadsheet for the Smogon Doubles Tour, once again put together by yours truly! There isn't much to say, and it's pretty intuitive—at least in my opinion—but please let me know if you notice any errors or have any suggestions to improve the spreadsheet (suggests both for form and function appreciated)!

I've also taken the liberty to edit the spreadsheet into the OP.

Since Swagger was just banned from BW DOU, it will NOT BE LEGAL in Week 9 of Smogon Doubles Tour. It may not be implemented on SmogTours yet, so we will have to operate on an honors system for this week. If you are found to be using Swagger, you will be disqualified and will receive zero points for that tournament.

Get ready for the last weekend, playoffs are right around the corner!
