$200 Prize Pool XY Doubles OU Tour - Round 4A


a pinned butterfly is no butterfly at all

  • This is a standard XY Doubles OU Tournament - rules and discussion for the metagame can be found here.
  • The tournament is single-elimination, with 2 week rounds. with each half of the bracket staggered by one week to ensure that games are likely to happen every weekend. This will be achieved by giving half of the bracket a three-week round 1. This may seem excessive for a single-elimination tournament, but we'd like to encourage building and active metagame development; also, it's better to ensure that players are able to adequately prepare for and schedule matches for such a large prize pool.
  • Rounds will be Best of Three. You may switch teams in between battles of the same set.
  • The tour will not be seeded.
  • To encourage the development of the metagame, and so that everyone is on an even playing field, all matches must have replays recorded. If neither player posts replays of the match, both players will suffer an automatic game loss.
  • Incidents of ghosting / multiple signups carry their standard penalties. Players currently tour-banned cannot enter.
  • Activity calls will be made by me, with assistance if needed from DOU tierleaders and a TD. Flips will be done on PS!
  • In the event that something is added to or removed from the XY Doubles OU metagame in the middle of a round, that change will be in effect starting the next round.

It's not my best commentary work because I usually go to bed 90 minutes ago, but I did commentate the above set here. I'll try in the future to post sets and times I'm commentating in the thread before they happen.

Also while you're here you should watch stax vs smb on my channel or at least the replays because that was the best fucking set so far this tour
