Tournament BLT VII: Week 6

BLT.png

Approved by nui

Welcome to the sixth week of BLT VII! For this year's format, teams will be fighting in a round robin where every team will play every other team. At the end of the round robin, the top four teams will move on to the playoffs where the first seed will play the fourth seed and the second seed will play the third seed to determine who will be this year’s finalists. A win will be worth 2 points, a draw 1, and a loss 0. Obviously, play on PS! (preferably main or smogtours server). Series are played in a best-of-one.

Basic Tournament Rules - you absolutely should read this, especially if you're new to forum tournaments

Sportsmanship: Don't be an ass. Not to your opponents, not to your team, not on PS, not on Smogon, not to me. A bit of friendly banter is ok, but please know where to draw the line. Think before you type, please.

Scheduling and Activity Wins: Contact your opponent as quickly as possible on their Smogon wall, and look out for them on PS. You will have one week from the posting of the week's matches to get it done, and I will not be granting any extensions for any reasons. If your opponent is not responding to your post on their wall, cannot be found on PS, or miss multiple scheduled times, make a detailed activity post in the thread letting me know why you deserve the win. No activity post means no activity call. As long as you have visible attempts at scheduling (such as wall posts), you will be fine.

Disconnections and Timer: A timer loss is a loss. No if's, and's, or but's about it. If your opponent is nice enough to replay that's fine, but they are by no means obligated to.

Ghosting and Identity: Don't take or give battle advice or make moves based solely on the suggestions of others, and don't pretend to be someone else in order to play as them. You will be caught, and you will be disqualified from this season as well as future PS! tournaments (BLT, PSPL, etc.).

Substitutions: Managers are free to substitute out inactive players at any point during the week with any subs they chose during the draft. Be sure to post in the thread when making a substitution.

Just in case - Disclaimers :

As a presenter of the replays, I don't have a favorite team. I appreciate you all not for your teams but for the good friendship I have with each of you, so I will be impartial and without favoritism. I adore you all and you are great friends thank you. :jynx:

Without further ado, another round of inaccurate predictions:

Santalune Swamperts vs Seafoam Goodras

SS OU: frisoeva vs Stareal - He may have lost last week, but fris is still fris. Looking forward to this regardless.
SS OU: Updated Kanto vs SolarflareRo - Uk is more solid, should be a good one.
SS UU: TMM vs ToastedBunzzz02 - Toasted has been toasting his competition more than TMM has, eexpecting this to be close.
SS RU: DanDaMan99 vs gorex - Danslam is the man who doesn't seem to be capable of losing in blt.
SS NU: Let's Rumble Shall We vs xSkelly34 - I hear xskelly is more experienced in nu, and I've only seen hr1 play ou.
SS LC: imjustgray vs parivard - This should be fun, but pari has been more impressive, sorry gray
SS DOU: TTT444 vs SMB - Rip smb vs cheese, the matchup we all wanted but never got, but this match is still really heat, so much so it burns my fingers to type this, ow. Also its a 2019 rematch!! Giving the edge to smb because its smb.
SS MONO: The Thunderbirds vs Decem - I was wondering when they'd finally put Decem in mono, I imagine thunderbirds will get decemated in this match.

Hammerlocke Hatterenes vs Sunnyshore Snorlax

SS OU: Ewin vs Roginald - Giving the edge to ewin who I think is just a bit better, expecting a good and close game.
SS OU: dahli vs Attribute - Another neat looking matchup, expecting attribute to take this as he has been more impressive.
SS UU: 100%GXE vs kythr - Now this is heat, both really solid players who've been doing well so far, but giving a slight edge to gxe for being gxe. Really looking forward to this.
SS RU: Sensei Axew vs Feliburn - It is a sin to not bold the sensei of RU.
SS NU: Confide vs PrinceOfAllTacos - This is the slightest edge I can possibly give, I expect this to be reallyclose. So close, I took the space out to show it.
SS LC: Jack In My Box vs EternalSnowman - The everlasting man of condensed frozen water droplets has been far more impressive while jack has been in a box.
SS DOU: Z Strats vs I want Atago to sit on me - This should be another close and heated matchup, but giving a slight edge to cheese.
SS MONO: Maple vs Havens - Overall better and has been much more impressive than DugZa.

Black City Bolts vs Azalea Alakazams

SS OU: Trade vs Hamhamhamhamham - trade was traded back to ou, another very heated matchup as trade has been very impressive in every tier he's been put in so far and his opponent is the mighty ham. My mind says ham but my gut says Trade, I can't decide. This will be good.
SS OU: APW001 vs Twixtry - Though this should be close, giving the edge to twixtry.
SS UU: snøfall vs TectonicDestroyer - Overall more solid player.
SS RU: PokemonCestDur vs Mac3 - Should be close, a heat ru match.
SS NU: Not Miyan vs Xiri - Miyan had a nice win against confide last week and despite Xiri's performance so far, I think he's got this.
SS LC: Mikaav vs tendiescometopapa - Not only is this guy the lc goat, but he's also the only user in the tour who's currently 5-0.
SS DOU: lightning1870 vs LolTrollGame - I was shocked with ltg's wins this week and last week, he's picked up that momentum and I don't think he'll be slowing down now.
SS MONO: RichardPepper vs Maki's Fox - Has been more impressive.

(Apologies to anyone I may have possibly offended, please do not take these very seriously.)
 
Accurate and nonbiased predicts :0
Snowpoint Snoms (4) vs Resort City Rufflets (4)
SS OU: -Latios- vs Blimax - goat
SS OU: Cheese5555 vs Pradhaaan - goat
SS UU: Ramolost vs ORAS-Mega - goat
SS RU: NRTS vs TheFranklin - havent seen nrts in ru and arce is a good player despite having an off season
SS NU: GW vs Skipkan - definitey a highlight, both have been very impressive
SS LC: realSurfyTeen vs Acselsior13 - havent seen much of surfy in this tour but acsesior has been rolling thus far
SS DOU: Plas vs Shadowmonstr4 - if this was any other tier i would prob pick plas, should be a good one
SS MONO: maroon vs Floss - happened but i woulda picked the mono goat anyway

Hammerlocke Hatterenes (4) vs Sunnyshore Snorlax (2)
SS OU: Ewin vs Roginald - idk but both are great players and should be a good one
SS OU: dahli vs Attribute - attribute has had some good games and some bad ones but ill start giving him the benefit if he beats a good player convincingly
SS UU: 100%GXE vs kythr - kythr is flames as fuck but gxe is the best player in the pool
SS RU: Sensei Axew vs Feliburn - sensei is a great ru player but i dont think ill end up bolding against feli
SS NU: Confide vs PrinceOfAllTacos - nu pool is actually kinda stacked
SS LC: Jack In My Box vs EternalSnowman - jack could still take this but im favoring esm
SS DOU: Z Strats vs I want Atago to sit on me - ok
SS MONO: Maple vs Havens - oh its dugza, gonna pick in my opinion one of the best monoers out there

Black City Bolts (3) vs Azalea Alakazams (5)
SS OU: Trade vs Hamhamhamhamham - should be a good one, ham has a worse record than expected while trade has the opposite but ham should almost always be favored
SS OU: APW001 vs Twixtry - apw is good but twix is better
SS UU: snøfall vs TectonicDestroyer - snofall is the better player imo
SS RU: PokemonCestDur vs Mac3 - both good players, this one should be fun to watch
SS NU: Not Miyan vs Xiri - miyan has been doing well and xiri hasn’t but xiri should still take this
SS LC: Mikaav vs tendiescometopapa - yea this isnt close
SS DOU: lightning1870 vs LolTrollGame - i would normally pick neg but ltg has been on a roll against good players so
SS MONO: RichardPepper vs Maki's Fox - maki should get their first win here
ZAMS ARE STILL IN THIS
 
Santalune Swamperts vs Seafoam Goodras
SS OU: frisoeva vs Stareal
SS OU: Updated Kanto vs SolarflareRo
SS UU: TMM vs ToastedBunzzz02
SS RU: DanDaMan99 vs gorex
SS NU: Let's Rumble Shall We vs xSkelly34
SS LC: imjustgray vs parivard
SS DOU: TTT444 vs SMB
SS MONO: The Thunderbirds vs Decem

Surprisingly equal and most likely in Goodras favour. It will probably come down to the LC slot tbh.

Snowpoint Snoms vs Resort City Rufflets
SS OU: -Latios- vs Blimax
SS OU: Cheese5555 vs Pradhaaan
SS UU: Ramolost vs ORAS-Mega
SS RU: NRTS vs TheFranklin
SS NU: GW vs Skipkan
SS LC: realSurfyTeen vs Acselsior13
SS DOU: Plas vs Shadowmonstr4
SS MONO: maroon vs Floss

Ruffs should have a pretty alright time winning this week.

Hammerlocke Hatterenes vs Sunnyshore Snorlax
SS OU: Ewin vs Roginald
SS OU: dahli vs Attribute
SS UU: 100%GXE vs kythr
SS RU: Sensei Axew vs Feliburn
SS NU: Confide vs PrinceOfAllTacos
SS LC: Jack In My Box vs EternalSnowman
SS DOU: Z Strats vs I want Atago to sit on me
SS MONO: Maple vs Havens

Trace is me, and a team with me on it should have no problem winning a pre-penultimate week.
 
Santalune Swamperts (3) vs Seafoam Goodras (4)
SS OU: frisoeva vs Stareal proven player vs up and comer. Should be a great game, both have had similar seasons
SS OU: Updated Kanto vs SolarflareRo no contest
SS UU: TMM vs ToastedBunzzz02 so long as tmm is on form and thinking about his plays hes very dangerous, and toastedbunzz is much more experienced in nu rather than uu
SS RU: DanDaMan99 vs gorex gorex has been on a hot streak in tours lately, should take this one
SS NU: Let's Rumble Shall We vs xSkelly34 better i guess?
SS LC: imjustgray vs parivard gray has been struggling to my surprise but i expect a bounceback
SS DOU: TTT444 vs SMB very close, smb is still smb tho
SS MONO: The Thunderbirds vs Decem washed me in sm ou the other day


Snowpoint Snoms (4) vs Resort City Rufflets (3)
SS OU: -Latios- vs Blimax temp has been heatin up lately, expected to continue the momentum
SS OU: Cheese5555 vs Pradhaaan close game, i favor cheese slightly
SS UU: Ramolost vs ORAS-Mega ramolost will not lose a game unless its vs gxe in uu.
SS RU: NRTS vs TheFranklin both are solid, arce9 is more proven tho
SS NU: GW vs Skipkan skipkans been struggling more than expected, but i actually think GW is better at other low tiers even though hes an nu main. Should be a close one
SS LC: realSurfyTeen vs Acselsior13 acselsior13 is fresh off a win last week iirc, and he seems pretty good at lc. dk this other guy
SS DOU: Plas vs Shadowmonstr4 not gonna pretend that ik anything about doubles, but both are good.
SS MONO: maroon vs Floss

Black City Bolts(1) vs Azalea Alakazams (7)
SS OU: Trade vs Hamhamhamhamham trade has played like 3 different tiers and has done decent in all of them, but i think hams better at ou specifically.
SS OU: APW001 vs Twixtry apw cant be getting this lucky for this long come on now its gotta end soon
SS UU: snøfall vs TectonicDestroyer tect is pretty good at ru, his uu prowess isnt insane but hes still ok at the tier. has the playing advantage and better support which should give him the edge
SS RU: PokemonCestDur vs Mac3 mac is a cold blooded killer
SS NU: Not Miyan vs Xiri has been getting back on form recently expected to continue that
SS LC: Mikaav vs tendiescometopapa amuse tells me this guys pretty good
SS DOU: lightning1870 vs LolTrollGame !pick
SS MONO: RichardPepper vs Maki's Fox better player, will only get fucked over by a horrendus mu. Might even be able to outplay it because of the playing ability gap

Lkap your my homie and all but its hard to predict your team any week cuz theyre either hot af or cold af. expecting it to be a cold week

GO HATTS :HATTERENE:
