    The State of Old Gen Lower Tiers

    Yep, this is the current policy. Anyhow... Thanks for posting this. I was planning on making a thread due to BP being banned on the ladder (which technically should not have happened - it was done without any formal request or ban - but brought what has been a pervasive issue for a while now to...

    Announcement UUTL goes BRRRR

    After roughly four years and two generations of leading UU, I've decided it's time to move on and get some new blood in charge. I am officially retiring as UUTL. Lilburr will be taking my place alongside TDK as the new UUTL, so congrats!

    Proposal: MVPs in Team Tournaments

    I know, I’ve been making a lot of these threads. This is a fun one, though! What would people think about adding a tour MVP to team tournaments? This wouldn’t be an additional trophy role or anything, just a fun way to recognize the really gamechanging or breakout players in a team tour. We...

    St. Patrick and the Casting Out of Snakes

    Things have been a bit quiet with the recent focus rightfully on SPL, but I wanted to provide a quick update. First, Zracknel has mocked up some sample logos for the tournament. In these instances he used green for the color scheme under the assumption that the tour keeps the green trophy, but...

     np: SS UU Stage 8.1 - This Heart's On Fire

    Just a couple of things from this meta. The ladder was absolutely miserable as many have commented, but mostly because it was just so cheese heavy. It's really hard to build something super solid against every possible Screens/Veil team because Screens make so many random things viable...

    St. Patrick and the Casting Out of Snakes

    While Zracknel is hard at work putting together some sample ideas for us to help choose a direction re: name and branding, I've been working a bit on the overall format and auction model. Regarding the format, I've been reaching out to a lot of folks privately about their thoughts on Monotype's...
