    You feelin' lucky, punk? Well, unfortunately for you, you're going to need a lot more than luck to win this tournament. The Tournament of Second Chances is designed to promote skill above all else as the deciding factor on who wins. If you think the only thing preventing you from winning a major tournament is your bad luck, then now's your chance to prove it.

    Standard Rules (as defined in this thread):

    • Singles
    • 6v6
    • 4th Generation
    • No Ubers
    • Species Clause
    • Sleep Clause
    • Evasion Clause
    • OHKO Clause
    • Self-KO Clause
    • Battle Timeout
    Non-Standard Rules:

    • Each player must submit up to 5 teams before the tournament starts
      • You can only use one of these 5 teams in every match for this entire tournament.
      • You cannot change any part of any of these teams at any time throughout the tournament.
      • If you do not have 5 teams to submit, you are allowed to enter with less, but just note that you will not be allowed to submit more teams later on in the tournament. In other words, you will be restricting yourself to however many teams you initially submit.
    • Best of 3 Matches
      • Only the loser may switch teams for the next match.
    • Double Elimination
    • In order for your signup post to be counted, it must contain all three of these words in it: "count", "me", and "in". You may post these words in any order you want, or in the middle of a sentence even, so long as I see those three words somewhere in your post. I'm only doing this to ensure that everybody who signs up has actually read these rules.
    • All logs must be saved and turned in to verify that both players used an exact team from their team bank. If you cannot provide a log, you will be asked to do a rematch. This obviously makes it the winner's responsibility if they want their win to be counted! DON'T FORGET TO DO THIS!!!
    Rounds will last one week apiece with the possible exception of Round 1 lasting two weeks due to the sheer volume of people. I will be very strict on round deadlines, because needing to build a team is not an issue for this tournament. I encourage everybody to post when they are active and ready to play so that I can gauge activity at the end of the round. Otherwise, unfinished match advancements will be decided on coin tosses.

    That being said, may you all have neutral luck, and may the best player win!
