Welcome to the first ever Balanced Hackmons Ladder Tournament!! The rules are simple, ladder as high as you can each week. The top eight players of each cycle will qualify for playoffs. The playoffs are a 32-player seeded best-of-three single elimination tournament, which will occur after all four weeks are completed. These playoffs will also count towards the 2019 Other Metas Tour Circuit.
1. This will take place on the regular "[Gen 7] Balanced Hackmons" ladder on the main Pokemon Showdown server.
2. The qualification period for the BHLT will run for a total of 4 cycles with roughly 7 days per cycles. After each 7 day cycle, the top 8 accounts that appear on the leaderboard (using ELO) will qualify for the playoffs of the BHLT.
3. Your account must contain the tag "BHLTTar" as a prefix. The prefixes will be random as an extra step to prevent people from guessing what next week's will be and laddering early
4. In order to sign up, follow the Sign-Up format below and register your account on PS!

You must sign-up here before using your account to ladder. Alts must be registered on the day of the sign-up post or afterwards to prevent players from registering an account beforehand and laddering with it to gain an unfair advantage. I will be checking registration dates for any qualifying accounts to ensure people don't try to abuse the system. Please only include one alt in your sign-up post for each cycle. You will not be allowed to edit your alt name after you include it in your initial sign-up for any given cycle. If something happens with said account that means you need a new account, delete your post and make a new one. It is advised that once you sign up here, you immediately register the account on PS afterwards so that no one steals the account listed. Also, alt names that break PS rules will not be allowed to qualify.Forum name: Ransei
