Welcome to the tiebreakers of 1v1 Classic III

This will determine who receives the 14th, 15th, and 16th seeds.​

Tournament Rules:
  • General tournament rules and regulations can be found here.
  • 1v1 Classic Rules can be read here.
  • Battles will be a Bo3 of Bo5s
  • Tiers played must be figured out during scheduling.
  • Battles must take place on the main server.
  • Do not make baseless activity posts -- get in contact with your opponent and report missed times / scheduling issues only. Please also do not activity call on the first day.
  • Learn how to schedule. Specify a number of days and time frames that you'll be available at, and always mention your Time Zone. Don't use vague statements like "Sunday Evening". Tournament Scheduling Guidelines can be found here.
  • If the match is not completed by the deadline, I will decide whether to give the activity win or coinflip the match. No extensions will be given for the tiebreakers.
  • If the tiebreaker matches prove inconclusive, or only eliminate a single individual, a tiebreaker reset will occur.
  • Replays are strictly required for the development of the metagame. If replays are not included in your win post the match will be coinflipped. If you fail to save replays, let me know as soon as you can.

Ruleset:
ORAS Banlist and Resources
BW Banlist and Resources
DPP Banlist and Resources
ADV Banlist and Resources

Tiebreaker Rules:
Each set will consist of a Bo3 of Bo5s of chosen Old Gen tiers, same way the playoffs will be done. The tiebreaker bracket was determined by randomizing a list of the users, and having them fight the people above and below them in list order (found here: https://i.imgur.com/ZzDBlqC.png). Since we obviously don't have seeding to determine who chooses what tiers to play, the first Bo5 tier was chosen randomly, while, during scheduling, the second bo5 tier will be chosen by the first player in a pairing, and the last tier by the second player in a pairing. For example, in a series between Synonimous and Djokra, since Synonimous is the first player, he will choose the second tier for the second bo5 played, and Djokra will choose the last tier played.

Tiebreaker:

Deadline is Sunday, December 1st, 11:59 PM EST, or as soon as everyone finishes their matches.

edit: bo3 of bo3s -> bo3 of bo5s

Given the results of the the last game, this has confirmed a three man tiebreaker reset will occur with LRXC, Close, and either Synonimous or Djokra. The last match (Synonimous vs Djokra) is going to be completed on Friday, but in the meantime, we can get started with the first match of the tiebreaker reset

Close vs LittleRunnerXC (first gen is DPP (shown here: https://imgur.com/a/qpjLCXp))
same format as previous tiebreaker, Close will pick tier 2 and LRXC tier 3 (determined here: https://imgur.com/a/d9Bk8pK). Deadline will be a week after Synon v Djokra happens, but yall can get it done early if you want (I would encourage it)

Slight Announcement:

Playoffs need to start, and so we aren't resetting the tiebreak if Close beats LRXC tomorrow, as none of the players will be eliminated. The tiebreaker, if applicable, will be set winrate in the 3-Way Tiebreaker. If that metric is tied, Game Winrate will be used.
 
Won in a quick series vs my friend Close , we've definitely gotten to know eachother this tour LOL

Really really good DPP series btw

g3: https://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen41v1-1023801316 well then

g5: https://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen41v1-1023811405

The reason we did not go to the other sets is with my win Close was eliminated due to the set count tiebreaker, so we decided to end it early!

I would have liked to finish better and not with that rule, but I still enjoyed it. I had never touched the old gen (except for a tour organized by dom, almost simultaneously as classic, in which I did 2nd place) and I did a decent run. I leave the place to players who rightly have more experience and played more the old gen than me.

We get the next tour and good luck to everyone!!
