Welcome to the first Anything Goes Premier League! Modeled after the Smogon Premier League, Anything Goes is hosting a premier league for the first time in which the best players of our metagame battle for victory.

This thread may be used for any discussion about the tournament. Feel free to post freely, but don’t do anything too extreme. Make sure that you follow the Smogon rules!

The format for AGPL I is the following:

  • Bo3 USUM Anything Goes
  • Bo1 USUM Anything Goes
  • Bo1 USUM Anything Goes
  • Bo1 USUM Anything Goes
  • Bo1 USUM Anything Goes
  • Bo1 ORAS Anything Goes
Draft Date

The draft will occur on 10th August Saturday at 2 PM GMT. We will be using a group chat to draft, for people who want to observe the draft, we will provide the link of group chat.

Rules

All battles MUST be played either on Pokémon Showdown! or Smogtours (smogtours.psim.us). No exceptions will be granted if another server is used.

Regular Season
:
The regular season will consist of 5 round robin weeks where each team will play the other 5-7 teams one at a time. There are 6 matches each round, so ties are a possibility. Each week win is 2 points, a tie is 1 point, and a loss is 0 and will be recorded on the spreadsheet.

Playoffs:
The top 3 teams will advance into playoffs where the #1 seed directly advances to the finals and #2 and #3 slots play semifinals. Winner of #2 vs #3 will play #1 for the Anything Goes Premier League Championship! In case of a tie, we will be looking at win points for (coming soon)

Ties and tiebreaker:

If there is a tie between 2 teams for playoff qualifiers, we will be first looking to the win points. If win points of 2 teams are also equal to each other, the next step will be their W/L ratio. If both win points and W/L ratio of 2 teams are identical, tiebreakers will be played.

Tiebreakers consist of 3 games. One game will be guaranteed SM Anything Goes, each team picks a blind meta and winner advances to the playoffs.

Substitutions:
If a captain wishes to substitute a player for an inactive one in the lineup, you must post in the week's thread who is subbing in for who. In addition, please make the post highlight the opponent and their Captain so everyone is aware of the substitution that had occurred. If I feel that you are trying to gain an unfair advantage with your substitute, I hold the right to veto it.

Pre-Week Battling:
Because there is a set schedule generated at the beginning of the season, it is possible to accurately guess what players you will be facing in any given week. However, because the next week’s rosters are not set in stone until the day before the next week, there is no telling what a manager will do with regards to who they slot in one spot… especially if they have more than one player in any given tier. Asking to battle early for future weeks is essentially asking the opposing manager to short themselves options and forces them to make their roster early, perhaps without all of the knowledge they might have gleaned over the course of the week. Due to this, battling early for future weeks is not allowed. Do not ask to battle early for a future week. You will be denied. No exceptions. This is what you have substitutes for.

Trades:
Teams may trade players with each other at any point during the regular season. In order to complete a trade, both involved managers must submit a PM to the host detailing which player(s) on their team they are trading away, as well as which players they are receiving as compensation. Trades are finalized at the end of the week they are conducted in. In addition, due to potential conflicts of interest, any players involved in trades must be substituted out of the week they’re involved in a trade. There will be no trades allowed following the conclusion of Week 4. Trades become finalized with host approval; managers may bring up a trade for veto within 24 hours of the trade being made and the hosts will review the trade and re-finalize or veto the trade.

Activity Decisions:
There will be times when a game is not completed. In these instances, I will undertake my duty as a host to make a thorough investigation. If both sides made no effort or have tried to make every effort but could still not make the match happen, the match will simply result in a no contest. If one side made considerably more of an effort to get the match scheduled and done, that player will be awarded a win. Here are some things you can do to ensure that you do not lose your match via activity: Immediately leave your opponent a VM on their profile after you receive the highlight, do not miss you and your opponent’s schedule time, provide your opponent with concrete times (and your timezone) when you can be reached and reply to your opponent’s VM if they contacted you before you were able to contact them.

Reverse Rulings:
Rulings will not be reversed unless it is immediately appealed and I overlooked a critical piece of evidence. After it is posted in the Administration thread, we reserve the right to reverse the judgment within 12 hours of the decision going public in order to get the best outcome of each situation.

Other general smogon tournament rules apply, any evidence of violating them will result in an immediate ban.
