$500 Prize Pool BW Doubles OU Tour - Round 3 B


a pinned butterfly is no butterfly at all
  • This is a standard BW 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 Finals will be Best of Best of Three.
  • The tour is seeded according to DOU Tour II BW points. These points can be found here.
  • 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 BW Doubles OU metagame in the middle of a round, that change will be in effect starting the next round.

  • Evasion Clause: Players cannot use the moves Double Team or Minimize.

Kory2600 has not replied to my initial VM or follow-up regarding scheduling. While I still have time to play this week, if I don't hear back soon from them I will be allotting that time for school and other work. They've been online since I sent the initial VM, and they also didn't attempt to schedule in the last round of the tour so I'm unsure if they are interested in playing. Activity.
