AAA Ghosting Tournament I

Welcome to the Almost Any Ability Ghosting Tournament! In this tournament we ask: hey, what if we just cheat? Like just bring the lads and play together. It'll be fun. Similar to other ghosting tours, the rules are as follows:

Battle Rules:
  • This tournament will be played in [Gen 9] Almost Any Ability.
  • Best of 1. If you tie, you'll need to repeat.
  • If a change is made to the tier (a mon is banned/unbanned), the change doesn't go into effect until the next round.
  • If you're playing on the main server, please make the room public. You're going to have to post a replay anyway so there's no point in hiderooming. If your room is hidden, type /modjoin off and /publicroom.
  • Timer: Do NOT turn on the timer in your battle until after 30 minutes have passed since it started. Use the servertime command to keep track of this (see below). This is to allow enough time to properly ghost.
    • In order to keep track of 30 minutes, type !servertime in the chat when the battle begins. Type !servertime in the chat again when you want to turn the timer on. Agreement from both sides is not required.
    • If you're on SmogTours, ask anyone that has a %, @, or ~ next to their name to turn off the timer in your battle. Try to make sure that a staff member is online before you start playing. If there isn't one, play on Main.
  • Replays: you must post a replay of your win. You can hide it or unlist it, but you have to post it.
Ghosting Rules:
  • You can ghost (clue's in the name).
  • Teams are to be made up of 3 players.
  • Your entire team should be present at a battle, so it's probably a good idea to form a team with similar timezones and availabilities. Depending upon certain situitations, you may be allowed to play with a player missing from your team. [ This will be reviewed on case by case basis ]
  • You must post logs of your ghosting along with your replay in your winpost (losers are also encouraged to post logs as it always fun to read them but are not required).
    • If you're playing on Main and have a trusted user on your team , make a groupchat (/makegroupchat) to do your ghosting. It makes it easy to just copy and paste the logs into a pastebin.
    • If you're playing on SmogTours or on Main but without a trusted user, use Discord, but make sure to copy and paste your logs while in compact mode.
    • If you're in a voice call, you'll need to record a video and audio of your call and, if possible, the battle. Upload it to YouTube.
Other than that, all tournament rules and guidelines apply (minus the ones about ghosting, obviously). Failure to comply with these rules will result in a loss or a coinflip.

Signups are now open! Remember, 3 members!
  • Only the captain of a team needs to post. Captains: make sure to tag every member on your team.
  • Don't post to confirm; that just clutters up the thread (PM me if you're on a team you didn't agree to).
  • Captains can decide a team name and an image to be associated with - don't be stupid with this.
  • People not on a team can post to be a free agent. Depending on signup numbers I may or may not form free agent teams. Priority will obviously go to complete teams.
Signups will be open for about a week, depending on the signup numbers.

Good luck and have fun!
