    You feelin' lucky, punk? Well, unfortunately for you, you're going to need a lot more than luck to win this tournament. The Tournament of Second Chances is designed to promote skill above all else as the deciding factor on who wins. If you think the only thing preventing you from winning a major tournament is your bad luck, then now's your chance to prove it.

    Standard Rules
    (Reference):

    • Species Clause
    • Sleep Clause
    • Evasion Clause
    • OHKO Clause
    • Battle Timeout
    • Wi-Fi Clause
    Non-Standard Rules:

    • Each player must submit up to 5 teams before the tournament starts
      • You can only use one of these 5 teams in every match for this entire tournament.
      • You cannot change any part of any of these teams at any time throughout the tournament.
      • If you do not have 5 teams to submit, you are allowed to enter with less, but just note that you will not be allowed to submit more teams later on in the tournament. In other words, you will be restricting yourself to however many teams you initially submit.
    • Best of 3 Matches
      • Only the loser may switch teams for the next match.
    • Double Elimination
    • All logs must be saved and turned in to verify that both players used an exact team from their team bank. If you cannot provide a log, you will be asked to do a rematch. This obviously makes it the winner's responsibility if they want their win to be counted! DON'T FORGET TO DO THIS!
    Rounds will last one week apiece with the possible exception of Round 1 lasting two weeks due to the sheer volume of people. I will be very strict on round deadlines, because needing to build a team is not an issue for this tournament. I encourage everybody to post when they are active and ready to play so that I can gauge activity at the end of the round. Otherwise, unfinished match advancements will be decided on coin tosses. That being said, may you all have neutral luck, and may the best player win!

    I cannot stress enough these two factors:

    • SAVE YOUR LOGS! The onus is on you, winners, to save it, but if your opponent does, good. Just don't take that risk.
    • If you win a game, you must use the same team as before.

    HBK vs McMeghan
    Bloo vs Chacal
    Zebraiken vs DarkLoic
    AlphaJolt vs Razza
    KnightoftheWind vs Taylor

    Deadline is 11:59 PM, Saturday the 12th of May, 2012 (EST).

    You don't need to build teams, so get to arranging a match quickly, please! Neutral luck, everyone!

    Thanks McMeghan. From the looks of it, everybody who lost in losers last round are currently missing.

    PLEASE DO NOT DO YOUR MATCH UNTIL SYMPHONYX64 UPDATES THE MATCHUPS. MATCHUPS ARE CURRENTLY NOT FINAL.

    Edit: Thanks WORMS for fixing it in 4 seconds. Matchups are correct now, please get these done.

    Matchups are still not correct. Smith has two battles; one in the winners bracket and one in the losers bracket.
