    The Yin-Yang Tournament
    aka Pound-for-Pound III

    [​IMG]

    Introduction

    The main goal of this single elimination tournament is to challenge players in the array of BW metagames ranging from BW Ubers to BW LC. It also serves as a little prelude to what the Smogon Grand Slam will require from players that have their sights set on the teal trophy. Each round players will get a different BW metagame to play, which will be picked randomly by me. For those that are not aware of all the BW metagames, they are: BW Ubers, BW OU, BW UU, BW RU, BW NU, and BW LC. Let's see who can prove themselves a master of Black and White!

    Well AlphaJolt's computer broke and said he'd message me when it was fixed a long time ago but he never did and that's why we haven't battled. I'll contact him again though.

    Oh no. Little Cup. The tier I was fearing the most because I know nothing about it. :(

    I've sent a message to 'The Hitman'.

    I guess that i'll be given the lose but it seems kinda unfair to me....
    I schelduled a time to play my first opponent before my exams, when i could play without any problems, and he told me he wanted to leave me the win. I reported there instead of saying "I won" and he was subbed out. But then my exams began, i couldn't really play, and my opponent was only present around 5 am to 10 am my time... How the hell was i suppose to play him during my finals ? (considering that it would have been tough for me to play him at that time, even if i didn't have had my finals)....
    So well, im making an activity post to show that i would have loved to play this tournament, but i'm gonna leave in a few minutes, and i didn't see my opponent today, even if i waited for him for 12 hours.... So i'm trying to make a last Activity Post to make you change your decision if you decided to give him the Activity win, which would be pretty unfair in my opinion.

    Yea I understand your situation, but hear me out. Round 1 started June 11th, and you reported that your original opponent gave you the win June 15th. I could not just give you a free win with an active substitute in hand and more than enough time to your new match done. The regular deadline for Round 1 was June 20th, meaning you had 5 days to contact your opponent. I even VM'd you June 15th right after I subbed in ~Golden Emp, so you knew what was up. Your opponent contacted you on June 17th through VM; a VM to which you responded today - 8 days later.

    You had a total of 9 days to get your match done with your new opponent factoring in the 4 day extension.

    Again, I completely understand your testing situation (it definitely takes priority over a pokemon game), but I just can't give you an activity win over your opponent who has been arguably more active than you. If you would've simply given him a date and time in the first place on June 17th, I am positive you guys would have gotten it done in time. It wouldn't even be right if I coinflipped your match.

    I know you are an active player around here, but you are unfortunately a victim of circumstance.

    The best advice I can give you is, find the guy and battle him as soon as possible.

    EDIT: Do not respond to this post. Take it to VM or PM please.
