    Down to the final 12 people. Congrats to everyone who made it this far! We truly have seen some tough competition, but the best has clearly yet to come. All 12 remaining battlers are as high tier as they come and it should be interesting to see how this plays out!

    After three rounds, here are the standings, with 4 teams eliminated and only two teams with more than one representative left. Asia has a commanding lead but this is not over yet!

    Standings

    Notes:
    -Rules are located here.
    -A win in this round will be worth two points, as outlined in the Format page.
    -Pairings were made randomly
    -Shiv was subbed in over salaspectrum for those who missed it

    And now, the Round 4 Pairings!

    Earthworm vs Taylor
    husk vs GG
    [kd8]otome vs Fade_Away
    omni vs Loki
    FiveKRunner vs Jackal
    Obi vs Shiv

    Deadline to complete battles is Sunday, May 11, 2008, but you guys have been great with deadlines so I am not too worried. These are the matches for all the glory so im sure you guys will do them without me hounding you :)

    Post predictions and smack-talk in this thread, and FIGHT FOR YOUR COUNTRY!!!!

    PPS: Canada is still alive bishies whaaaaaaaaaaat

    since the rules state "Pokemon that are considered "Uber" are banned from use on a player's team." does that mean deoxys-e is allowed in this round ?_?

    just wondering in case there are any d-e enthusiasts left in the tourney >_>

    Is it actually possible for Asia to lose to anyone other than USA Central at this point?

    Earthworm vs Taylor - Good luck!
    husk vs GG - husk's battling style should outdo GG's.
    [kd8]otome vs Fade_Away - Both are great, IPL is probably more consistent though.
    omni vs Loki - From what I have seen Loki will probably win, but this could be tight!
    FiveKRunner vs Jackal - I don't see Jackal battle very often and I know FiveK is very good.
    Obi vs Shiv - Obi may prove too intimidating an opponent for Shiv to handle!

    Wobbuffet is also not on the uber list.



    Earthworm vs Taylor
    husk vs GG
    [kd8]otome vs Fade_Away
    omni vs Loki Go team! (thanks for ruining my left side prediction)
    FiveKRunner vs Jackal Go team!
    Obi vs Shiv Go team! Wait... Good luck!


    So, when US Central sweeps this round, we'll have 26 points. If it goes as I predicted, Asia will have 34, and Oceania will have 23 (tied with Metro). If US Central then sweeps the next round, the score will be US Central: 29, Asia: 34. If we then have the opportunity to do the round robin finals vs. ourselves (I hope we do because it would be dumb if we can't!), the score becomes US Central 35, Asia 34.

    I have found the path to victory! I think this is actually the only way to beat Asia, because the other countries simply don't have enough players alive to get enough points. The only other solution is for husk or otome to lose, thus taking some of the burden of poor US Central. :toast:

    I was just going through this on IRC and adding up the points. If I lose to Shiv this round, I found the following:

    [00:37:36] <+Obi> The best we can do is US Central: 31 to Asia: 32
    [00:37:58] <+Obi> And that's assuming 5K and Loki go all the way and take first and second in the round robin and husk and otome both lose this round
    [00:38:25] <+Obi> (and that Shiv loses next round)

    So no pressure or anything. I have to beat Shiv. Why did I have to get the Asia pairing!? =p

    imo No tier changing in the middle of the tourney what was disallowed in R1 should stay throughout the tourney just my personal opinion on this. It is up to jackal in the end tho. Also thanks for the math obi! Go Asia ^_^

    Shouldn't that be 32 if the points don't increase and stay at 2 points per win since if you swept this round you get 26 points as you said and another 3-0 sweep is another 6 points equaling 32?

    the flaw is that once all remaining participants are of one team, then it's over, therefore asia wins regardless!
