    The No Johns Tournament: ADV Edition

    • A cheap excuse for losing, missing a recovery, being hit by an attack, or any number of unfavorable events in Smash. It is a statement or action that detracts from the validity or quality of a competition (or its implied significance), irrespective of truth.
    While gimmicky tournaments are tons of fun, we all know that standard tournaments are the way to go, so what better thing to do than to bring back the No Johns Tournament! Just like last time, the rules are simple. This will be a single elimination, best of one ADV OU tournament with one catch: deadlines will be three days max.

    Tournament Rules:

    • General tournament rules and regulations can be found here.
    • Standard OU - Singles
    • Best of one
    • Single elimination
    • The banlists for this tournament are the same as for the ladders of the Smogon University and Groudon's Grotto servers of Pokemon Online.
    • No, absolutely any circumstances, johns.
    • Do not join this tournament unless you visit the forums every day and are extremely active, as shortened deadlines mean activity is crucial.

    Battle Clauses:

    • Species Clause
    • Sleep Clause
    • Freeze Clause
    • Evasion Clause
    • OHKO Clause
    • Timed Battle
    • Ingrain Smeargle is banned

    Participants:

    Players will be selected based on a 62.5% first come first serve and 37.5% randomized basis (if required). Sign ups will be open for roughly 48 hours. You are encouraged to put your teams together now while sign-ups are taking place to save time once Round 1 is posted.

    Instead of having so many "No Johns" Tournaments, why not just make all deadlines shorter?
