    Welcome one and all to the Orange League, Orange Island's first major competition. In it, teams will duke it out to show off their mini-game skills, fastest speedruns, and highest scores. Every two weeks, a new round kicks off and new teams are formed.

    As each round begins, competitors will be informed of which games will be used. They will have 4 days to assemble a team of people with access to at least one those games. If there are 5 games in the round, teams can be anywhere from 1 to 5 players (yes, soloing is allowed). If you are having trouble finding teammates, feel free to post which games you have in this thread and VM others that own the games you lack. You are also encouraged to go on #orangeislands on SynIRC to organize teams.

    After sign-ups, the actual events will be announced. Teams will have 10 days to get the best scores they can in each event. All scores should be PMed to TheOrangeLeague, along with photographic evidence of the scores. These don't have to be great quality pictures (feel free to use your cell phone or whatever), but SCORES SENT WITHOUT PHOTO EVIDENCE WILL NOT COUNT. All scores must be obtained during the 10 day timeframe. We don't care if you got your highest Snap score last week; go get it again. For speedruns, your player name should be your Smogon username (character space permitting), so as to further identify the score as your own.

    First place will receive 5 points, second will get 3, and third will get 1. If two or more players from the same team make it into the top 3, their team will be awarded those points (i.e. 8 points if two team members get first and second in one event).

    On-site leaderboards are kept for those with the highest total points earned. Also, there is an Archive of past round winners.

    If you have any questions about this, feel free to ask Jellicent or Texas Cloverleaf. We'll be happy to help!

    Finally, I hate that I have to say this, but it needs to be stressed. There is zero tolerance for cheating. If you are caught cheating or helping others cheat, such as by posting pictures of other people's scores, giving your teammates your scores to submit, using scores from before the beginning of the round, abusing glitches or cheat codes, etc., you will be banned from joining any future Orange League event, and potentially banned from future OI competitions as well. Also, I will personally make sure that Birkal spams your profile with tl;dr VMs about morality, so don't do it!

    Now, on to the fun part! The third round will use the following games:
    • Pokemon Snap (N64)
    • Pokemon Emerald (GBA)
    • Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness (GCN)
    • Pokemon Diamond/Pearl (DS)
    • Pokemon HeartGold/SoulSilver (DS)

    With 5 games this round, your team may have up to 5 players. You have 4 days to track down others with the games you lack and assemble your team. Good luck, and have fun ^.^

    Sure SuperJOCKE... I wish I knew where my XD disk was. That will probably be a speed run though.

    Virtual Console definitely counts. Also, Snap players were in high demand first round, so you're in luck ^.^

    Okay sure, why not. I'll join any team that needs someone, I have all 5 games.

    Edit: ended up getting on the Grammar Slammers after talking on IRC. Makes that simple enough.

    I feel a need to redeem myself for a lack of doing much last round. And, especially with snap being back, I can hopefully do that here. I'm in, once again.

    While I have all of these games I would like to say I am an expert at Pokemon XD and will gladly join any team that requires a player for that.

    If anyone wants a member that can play...
    Pokemon Emerald (GBA)
    Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness (GCN)
    Pokemon Diamond/Pearl (DS)
    Pokemon HeartGold/SoulSilver (DS)

    I'm game because I have all of those. And members of the team can play multiple games right and multiple members can play the same game right? (I'm asking as back up in case volunteering for 4 games is too much :) ). If no to those then I can play 1 one of the 4 (which is preferred anyway, but I can take up a second and maybe a 3rd if need be for a backup score)
