There were 52 signups. I decided to create a 48 slot bracket which would create a 5 Round Tournament with a Round Robin Finals. This means there will be 4 subs.
The way the player list was constructed as as follows
1. The first 5/8 of the 48 slot player roster is filled by the first 30 sign ups (5/8 of 48)
2. The remaining 22 signups were then put into a list and then randomized with Random.org's List Randomizer
3. The final 3/8 of the 48 slot player roster is filled by the first 18 sign ups from the randomized list created in Step 2
4. The remaining 4 players are then reordered by their signup date from earliest to latest and listed as Subs
Just to reiterate this is a Single Elimination USUM Doubles OU Tournament. Rounds will be Best of Three, and you may switch teams between games. We'll operate under standard rules and clauses of the metagame.
How I will deal with Subs:
I will check on Thursday to see if contact was made and that both players are active in responding. If I see either one or both players not in contact via vm walls then they will be subject to being subbed out. If you are not using smogon vm walls and would like to avoid being subbed out, then either post the contact logs on this thread or post as a pastebin on the respective VM Wall of your opponent since I will check there anyway. The sub list is in order so the top of the list gets subbed in first
Deadline is Sunday December 3rd 11:59pm EST (GMT -5)
