Thank you in the hills for the comfy art!
Welcome to the seventh edition of 1v1 Classic! A year has passed since Leru won the biggest old gens event in 1v1, and it's once again time to see who will prove themselves the best. Players will compete in individual cups for SS, SM, ORAS, BW, and DPP. The most successful players will enter a single elimination playoffs bracket to compete for the prestigious white trophy

1v1 Classic consists of five separate tournaments: SS Cup, SM Cup, ORAS Cup, BW Cup, and DPP Cup. Each tournament is single elimination, best of five. Depending on your performance in a Cup, you will be awarded points. The point system is the same as the one used in Smogon Grand Slam. When all the Cups have been finished, the eight players with the most points will advance to the play-offs.

Point system:
Cups will award 1 point per win until the round of 32 (round of 48 in a tour size with a round robin final). Wins from this point onwards in the cups will award 2 points (+3 to the winner of a round robin finals).

Signups for each cup will last one week. Hosts of each cup are allowed to play in the tournament they are hosting, because the Smogon bracketmaker can't be rigged. Here are the hosts as well as the dates each signup thread will be posted:
  • SS Cup - September 3rd - Hosted by bea
  • SM Cup - September 10th - Hosted by DripLegend
  • ORAS Cup - September 10th - Hosted by LittEleven
  • BW Cup - September 17th - Hosted by Itchy
  • DPP Cup - September 17th - Hosted by Sificon and SwordIsBored
Playoffs will be hosted by yours truly.
The eight players with the most points will advance to the play-offs.
  • High seed picks one gen.
  • Low seed picks one gen.
  • Low seed strikes one gen.
  • High seed strikes one gen.
  • Bo3o5 is played in the two picked gens and the gen remaining after the strikes.
  • Higher seed chooses the gen of G1, the gen of G2 is chosen by the loser of G1.

If there are any questions, then you can post in this thread or message me on Discord (marshadow_). Please do not use this thread as a venue to complain about the format.

Tiering changes to the metagames in this tournament might not immediately affect this tournament the round after they happen.

Please note that replays will be required starting in Round 2 of every Classic Cup.
