Alice in the Dragonland
USUM no-fairies Tournament - Hosted with Lord Thorx



Basic information

- Classic USUM OU Bo1 tournament (direct elimination) with a new rule : fairy mons are not allowed (doesn't apply to fairy attacks, they can be used)

- Semifinals and finals are bo3 to make it more fair to both contestants

- Replays are mandatory, and Zygarde is banned.

-
Matches are to be played on Pokemon Showdown or Smogtours.

- Activity calls will be made by me with probably the neutral assistance from a TD and flips will be made on Pokemon Showdown!



Why «no fairies»?

ORAS had one big change that made us questioning teambuilding and promoting a new way to think: the introduction of a new type of pokemon, known as “fairy”. Since then, fairies are considered a must have on any good team or core (the core of fairy-dragon-steel is known to be the most solid one), as they can be really good at dealing with one if not the best typing in the game: dragons. We want to explore a metagame where we can discover new ways to build new cores or explore new ways to prepare our defensive-offensive cores without having fairies as a primary choice. As always, replays are mandatory.




Identity
About playing on alts: It is entirely allowed to play on an alt other than your own main forum name, though if your opponent wishes to confirm your identity, you must log on to your main alt to show them you are who you claim to be. This is to prevent people from pretending to be who they're not.

About playing on different servers: Tournament matches must be played on the Smogtoursserver. The Main PS! serveris also acceptable if both parties agree to that. Other servers are not sanctioned by the TD team and playing in them might result in your game not counting. Protect yourself from that by playing in Smogtours, where we also have the power to recreate games that end due to DC's.

Scouting

On scouting opponents: Going through your opponents replays of tournament and ladder games is entirely allowed, as long as a game is public there is nothing preventing you from watching it. An exception to this is abusing powers granted to you by being staff on Smogon or PS! to gain access to information a normal user wouldn't have access to, which is strictly forbidden.

On leaking teams: Divulging private information about someone's planned team to their opponent is never allowed, and will be heavily sanctioned. Requesting that such information be divulged is also grounds for punishment. Keep your scouting to publicly available information and you'll be fine.

Timer Clause / Disconnections

On the Timer: The timer must stay on throughout the whole battle, only being turned off in the case of a player disconnecting, and in that case will only be turned off for 5 minutes (keep in mind that this is a interim solution while we wait on PS! developers). The timer may not be turned off in any other circumstance.

On Timeout losses: A player that loses by having all his time run out loses the game. This is only not the case if the player that received the timeout loss can be verified to have suffered a True Disconnection. Rematches in such cases are not allowed.

On True Disconnection: The TD team has a secret threshold of seconds that your timer must be at or above, from the moment you disconnect, for a timeout loss to be considered a True disconnection. If your game is determined to be a true disconnection if you played on Smogtours and contacted a TD before the room expired your game will be recreated up to the point the disconnect happened. It is the responsibility of the player that disconnected to get a TD into the room before it expires.
