    ARCEUS WILL BE BANNED IN UBERS


    THE OLD TIER LIST WILL STILL BE IN PLACE FOR THIS ROUND IN TERMS OF UU. THE OU WILL NOT HAVE THE CHANGES OF THE SUSPECT VOTES IN PLACE AS OF THIS TIME.

    To Advance, your team must win 2 of the 3 matches. The third match is not required if your team has already lost, but can be done out of respect or for fun.

    I’ve noticed that people have some that are dropping out, please PM me and the team members if interested in the spots. You must not have participated in the tournament thus far.

    Coin Flip and Activity based decisions to decide who advances. Please, don't argue these decisions. We've all seen what has happened, and I am personally very disappointed that these matches aren't getting done as quickly.

    LOGS CAN BE SENT TO ME IN TIMES OF DISPUTE

    I'm extremely dissapointed at how both Pat and Umbarsc were not able to get their match done, and more so because you have decided to leave it all down to a coin flip. That is fucking annoying.

    I gave them the most extreme amount of time ever. They had almost a full month. The second round opened on August 14th. I was not waiting any more for them to get it done.

    Hokay, like the ruling on the UU tier last round, I'm assuming Chomp remains in OU for the tourney, correct?

    Meanwhile, I've got a good chance of getting my ass handed to me, and since tennis is mehish at UU... D:

    We really couldn't set up a time frame, Pat really hasn't been active like at all, whereas I was on nearly everyday. (he also didn't respond to 2 of my PMs which was really annoying)

    I'd also like to jump on and say that this is complete crap.

    I am on Shoddy almost 5~6 hours a day, and during that time I see Umbarsc on about half as much.

    However, I never once saw Pat on... not even ONCE. And that was in an entire month of playing on Shoddy.

    This wasn't a case of both sides equally trying to get their matches done, this was a case of one side (umbarsc) fruitlessly trying to get a match done while Pat "kinda sorta" made an attempt.

    This is so unbelievably ridiculous that it came down to a coin flip when there was an obviously more active side that it makes my blood boil.

    I'm going to side with LonelyNess and Taylor here. I saw umbarsc on quite a bit on Shoddy (under umb), and rarely saw Pat at all. I'm not trying to play favorites, but one player was a lot more active than the other.

    TBH, it doesn't matter all that much that we move on. Now Venom and Pat probably have different opinions so you should ask them. But in all honesty, I never saw Pat on but I did see Umb on a few times. Don't know if this will change anything, I just don't want hurt feelings here, it is suppose to be a fun tournament.

    LonelyNess said I should post my inbox/sent box to show that I've been more active than Pat.

    Does this really matter though, it was 1 - 1, the last match wasn't gonna decide anything, maybe Pat was gonna win...? You should know that the coin flip thing always happens, so I don't understand how this is "bullshit".

    If you really want the to move on so bad then let it be, we don't take this shit seriously

    If you are picking me to win underused, then you are insane because I stopped caring when they sent the tier list to HELL.

    I actually forgot I was in any tournaments and checked this board on a whim to make sure I had not forgotten anything haha good timing!

    okay, after looking this event over, I've come to a conclusion. Team SUNFMA will advance. When my original update was made before I had to leave for a trip, Pat was on at the time, the 6th. However, in light of what has happened now, that is the last time Pat has been on. For the sake of finishing this off, umbarsc will advance.

    However, I myself am very disappointed in both myself and the others involved. It seems obvious that I should have rechecked this information before posting this tournament, and I am sorry for not doing this. However, there are other things I want to touch upon. As you can see, Pat was the first one that made the initiative to send a reply to umbarsc. Notice the date on that. Almost a full two weeks after the initial topic. Obviously, I wish for this to be completed faster.

    Another thing is the attitude that people had towards the result. I understand coin flipping will always do this, and that where one result comes to affect 4 others, it will be amplified. But please, have more respect towards one another. I'd like to thank those that stayed level headed during this.

    Well I'm glad that this issue has been resolved. And I do apologize for my unacceptable reaction to the result you had to make.

    I'm pretty honestly appalled at what went on here. And no, I'm not talking about moi's decision either way. A simple friendly PM would have sufficed instead of shitting up this thread with "this is ridiculous blah blah" and posting screenshots. Who's running the tournament here?

    At any rate, here's to a more peaceful tournament. Good luck to everyone still remaining.
