BSS LADDER TOURNAMENT V

Welcome to the fifth iteration of the Battle Stadium Singles Ladder Tournament! In this tournament, players will take their skills on the BSS ladder on Pokemon Showdown, and aim for the top. The first part of this tournament features 4 cycles, each a week long, where the top 4 players on the PS ladder will earn CP and the top 3 will qualify for playoffs. The playoffs will be a best of 3, single elimination tournament, with a best of 5 starting at semi-finals. Your performance in this tournament will earn you CP to qualify for the Battle Stadium Singles Invitational and a chance to win the BSS Circuit Ribbon (
165956
)!

To participate in this cycle, follow these 3 simple steps:
  1. Create an alt on Pokemon Showdown that begins with "BS5KU" (e.g. BS5KU chemcoop), and post it in this thread so that we can match your Smogon user to the alts. You can make as many alts as you want, but all of them need to be posted in your signup post. Every cycle will require new alts that will be differentiated by the two random letters after "BS5". Signups must be posted by Thursday 11:59 PM EDT (GMT-4) to count for the cycle.
  2. Do NOT ghost each other, boost each other, share alts, or break other tournament rules. Break this and you will be disqualified from the tournament. This INCLUDES asking players for a draw or forfeits on the ladder.
  3. Begin laddering on "[Gen 8] Battle Stadium Singles" on Showdown!

Qualifying stage

Every week, for the 4 cycles, players will climb the [Gen 8] Battle Stadium Singles ladder on Pokemon Showdown, aiming for the top of the ladder. The 4 highest players in each cycle will earn CP and the top 3 will go to the playoffs. The playoff seeding will take the winners of each cycle in the top 4 seeds, and the remaining players in the other 8 seeds, ordered by the ELO that the players have when the cycle finishes. Players can qualify in multiple cycles to improve their seeding, if they choose to do so. In the event that a already-qualified player qualifies in a later cycle with a better seeding rating, then their earlier cycle slot will go to the next available player within the earlier cycle. The top seeds in each cycle will earn a first round playoff bye and 6 CP, while seeds 2-4 will receive 4 CP. Only seeds 1-3 in each cycle will qualify for playoffs.


Playoff stage

The 12 qualified players will enter a best-of-three single elimination tournament bracket. The winner of each cycle will receive a first round bye. Starting in semi-finals, the games will be a best-of-five. Players earn 2 CP per win in the playoff bracket, with a bonus 1 CP for winning finals.
