    Tournament Specific Rules and Information:

    The Top 16 players will advance to the playoffs, and we will announce the format for that when we get there. It may be the same as Superstars III playoffs, but I'm hoping to come up with an even better, fresher idea this year.

    In addition, any player that leads or ties for the lead of a pool (limited to a two-way tie) will automatically have a chance to make the playoffs! Even if you seem down and out, one good pool performance can mean you're still in it!

    Activity decisions will be given out if there is obvious evidence supporting them. There will be no coin flips in the event of equal activity; the match will not count as a win or a loss for either player. To avoid gaming this system, Wins and Games Played is the primary tie breaker (a final record of 11-4 will beat 10-2 based on activity, and 10-3 will also beat 10-2). In the case of the same record, Head to Head will take precedence.

    I would like to encourage players to play with Specs Allowed, but I understand if they wish to play otherwise. I love watching/reading good Pokemon matches, so please save logs if you wish to share!


    1. Vinc2612 (11-4)
    2. CrashinBoomBang (11-4)
    3. Bloo (11-4)
    4. M Dragon (11-4)
    5. Reyscarface (11-4)
    6. LizardMan (11-4)
    7. Dragonuser (10-5)
    8. Leftiez (10-5)
    9. Aqualouis (10-5)
    10. panamaxis (10-5)
    11. Floppy (10-5)
    12. Bad Ass (10-5)
    13. undisputed (10-5)
    14. Conflict (10-3)
    15. yee (9-6)
    16. MarceloDK (8-7) / Myzozoza (7-8)
    Brackets will be double elimination, so don't be discouraged if you lose! Matchups are best of three in ADV / DPP / BW, and the higher seed can choose the order if they want. Good luck to all!

    Round 3

    LizardMan vs Bad Ass

    Loser's Bracket

    Dragonuser vs yee

    I decided to switch M Dragon over to the Solar Bracket and Dragonuser to the Lunar Bracket just to avoid potential replays. Shouldn't make a difference overall.

    panamaxis vs Bloo - these are definitely going to be a good set of matches, especially DP. i give panamaxis the edge in bw and bloo the edge in adv, so a deciding DP match would be extremely fitting.i'm pretty confident in bloo taking ADV, but he's also quite good in DP and BW. if he takes one of those, i got him winning the whole series

    Loser's Bracket

    Floppy vs Myzozoa - floppy's too strong in ADV and can fish one of DP/BW out from myzozoa.
    Conflict vs M Dragon - like with pana/bloo, i have m dragon as the weaker overall in DP/BW, but the difference is small and i think that he'll take one of those + ADV

    Lunar Bracket

    Round 3

    LizardMan vs Bad Ass - probably going to be done friday around tour time

    Loser's Bracket

    Dragonuser vs (Crashinboombang vs yee) - CBB has yee i think. if he loses ADVm though, i think it'll be really hard for him to recoup since i don't know what his BW game is like. even though i said dragonuser wasn't that great at old gens, i've actually seen him play very well in ADV and DP from the superstars matches that i've spectated. like i said, i don't know if CBB plays BW enough to steal that from du's creative teams. probably comes to dp.
    Aqualouis vs undisputed - undisputed started off v. strong but i think his momentum is waning and aqua (another strong player) will capitalize on that

    I defeated Aqualouis, ggs.

    BW - Pretty typical BW game in which I had a very nice team advantage.

    DPP - An early miss gave me a ton of breathing room for the rest of the match, sorry about that.

    Confirming that Badass and I are most likely going to play tommorow. Feeling pretty super pumped for our match. I am sure it will be really close and good.

    Lost vs Badass in ADV, and I won against him in DPP and BW. The series was close as hell, and it could have honestly swayed either way. Kept me on the edge of my seat.

    Ggs badass and good luck to you in the rest of the tournament.

    Due to a combination of both of us being really busy and having incompatible timezones, pana and I will only be able to play on Thursday or Friday of next week. We have decided to battle next Friday at 5 PM my time (-7), so that is when the match will go down. Sorry for the delay, and if it is possible for us to play at an earlier date, we will attempt to do so.

    So yee and I were supposed to play almost an hour ago, but he hasn't shown up. I'll stay on and wait for him to hopefully show up within the next few hours.

    Sorry for the delay.


    EDIT:
    lost adv ou, he got some luck that probably mattered
    won dpp ou, I got some luck that may have mattered
    won bw ou, clean and fun game
