    Just a reminder: people can play more than one game, and more than one team member can play each game. So, if all 5 of you have all five games, you can each submit scores for each game. For instance, if two of you on a team both have RSE and TCG, that's good. You can potentially earn your team 16 points between the two of you, rather than just 10 if you assign one game to each. The three highest scorers will be awarded points, regardless of whether or not they're on the same team. If you just play one each, your team can get a max of 25; if you each play 3+ games, your team can get all 45~

    Isn't that a bit unfair against smaller groups? Someone who wanted to solo this would only be able to submit 1 score per game whereas a group of 5 could submit 5 scores for game, making it easier for them to win.

    It's a team competition. If you want to win it on your own, you can (if you get 25, the most another team could get is 20). But, the stronger the team, the better your odds.

    Well, ok then. I guess it makes sense to encourage the formation of teams, especially since this is a community thing.

    A solo player would have to be really good to win on their own though!

    people for some reason forget that I am really good at TCG and Emerald?

    I'm still available if anybody wants me for either of these roles (or both!).

    I'm also a good Platinum in-gamer. Contest Pro and Miner, anyway.

    Hit me up on IRC or whatever.

    It was fine for you to offer, but she didn't respond and someone else asked me, so I took them instead. So all good.

    And now we have a full team. Go Team SteelSeed! I think we need a kickass banner or something, does anyone have banner skills? :P

    Oh, I must have missed your offer, Espeon. :/ Oh well, my fault. Good luck!

    I'm still available for any teams that need a player, I can play all games except TCG (unless my N64 doesn't work). Just VM me or talk to me on IRC :)

    Jas and Zystral, if you guys want to try and form a team with me that also works.

    Anyone else wants to join Rodan's group? I believe we need DPPt and now Snap (thanks to Birkal's treachery). :/

    jas on Snap
    Me on RSE and TCG
    jas and POJ and then decide later how to share DP and HGSS.

    I think that sounds good. We'll try to meet up on IRC later.

    Okay, reformation of the team Birkal was once in D:<

    Snap: ???
    RSE: Rodan
    TCG: TalkingLion
    DPPt: Wobbanaut
    HGSS: Level 51

    We had a Snap member, but... he was Birkal. Anyone?

    I'm glad to see that you finally got this project off the ground! Although I will not have time to participate myself, I urge everyone to sign up! The OI community is incredibly friendly, and participation in this league will be a great way to make friends (especially for those people who are new to Smogon).

    Just remember: OI is the ~fun~ forum. Please do not ruin the spirit of the forum and this thread by altering scores or cheating in any way. Everyone is playing to have fun, so you should too!

    Like Garud, I don't want to overwrite my saves. In fact, the only game in this tournament that does not have an irreplaceable save is R/S! Thus, if emulators are legal, I'd like to solo this one. If not, I'll be willing to join a team as a R/S player, but I'd really appreciate some confirmation on this issue. Thanks!

    This should be wrapping up in a few hours, so if you're still hammering out a team... hammer quickly~

    Also, if you have any questions, you can always PM me or hit up #OrangeIslands on SynIRC to clear things up ^.^

    I'd be happy to join anyone for Snap (using a real cart so long as I can do it without deleting my file) and any other game (using an emulator). If deleting is required and emulators aren't allowed, I'm afraid I can't play, though; I've had the same Snap file since the game first came out!
