Manager: PokeArt2004♥
Assistant Manager: Fluore
Team Name: Glaseado Glaceons

List of Accomplishments:

PokeArt2004❤ - I've participated in every iteration of BLT and TPP since 2019. I've managed in the past 3 iterations of TPP, made finals in my first year managing, and got 3rd place in the following 2 years, so as of now I've yet to miss playoffs as a manager. Despite not officially managing for BLT last year, I ended up taking up some manager like duties within my team (checking in on teammates, helping prep/scout, communicating with the other team's managers when needed) since my managers weren't always the most available. At least a couple of my teammates believed me to be one of the managers, and I consider that to be a small accomplishment as well.

Fluore - Fluore won BLT VIII as a Turffield Turtwig and has participated in some other iterations of BLT as well as TPP. He has also managed and drafted for many other team tours such as WCOP, RCOP, UWC, RUWC, NUWC, AG Winter League, BSSWC and BSPL to name a few. On top of that, his results are nothing to scoff at. He solo managed and won BSSWC and has consistently made playoffs amongst the other tours he has managed in. Being on the same team as me during last year's BLT, he occasionally took on some managerial duties as well, such as communicating with the other team and subbing players in.

Why would you make a Good Manager?:

PokeArt2004❤ - Since I've had 3 successful and fun years managing for TPP, as well as participating in the last 5 BLTS, I've been hoping for some time now to try managing in BLT as well. As a manager in the past, I've been able to help in creating a positive team environment and feel confident in my abilities to do so if given the chance to manage here. I also tend to be very attentive to my team chat and teammates and do my best to check on them to see how their prep is going/how they're doing. If they need help prepping, I provide them with scouts or I invite outside help with expertise in the tier. Since early February, I've had quite a bit of free time, and will likely continue to have a lot of free time in the next few months, so I'll be readily available and well motivated to manage in this tour.

Fluore - With his set of accomplishments, Fluore has shown himself to be a proven and very successful manager. He has also been able to foster positive team environments across the various teams he has managed. He is motivated and active in the team chats and does his best to support his players as well. Due to managing across a wide variety of tier specific tours and working alongside his teammates, Fluore is familiar with numerous gen 9 metas and is able to provide good support with building and test games. On the topic of managing a wide variety of tours, this makes him very familiar with smogon's player base, which will help us in planning and drafting a good team.

Manager: Mada
Assistant Manager: S1nn0hC0nfirm3d
Team Name: Tyrannical Tinkatons

List of Accomplishments: I have managed the Tinkatons multiple times and won 4 tours as manager. I have been managing in most of pls and side wcops last year, such as Teamballo, TPL, NDMPL, RWCOP, NDPL, NDWC, MWCOP, Mono BLT, UMPL, EPL, BSSWC, MPL and many else, missing playoffs only a couple of times out of tens of times. I have also played in a lot of other tours such as last 2 editions of BLT, TPP and NDPL, 3 of NDMPL, WCOP, ZUPL, WCOR, TPP, CAPPL, MWP, OUPL, RBYWC, ORASPL, ROAPL, SPL, BSSPL, HPL, AGWL, LCPL and a lot of other tours, where I've always been active in preparations and/or had good results. S1nn0h also has some managing experience in lowers/OM tours such as UMPL and ZUPL and is also an incredible player, notably going 11-1 in PU in last SCL.

Why would you make a Good Manager?: I have a lot of experience in managing in different tours with the same tiers and similar formats as in BLT and I have always done very well. I am always very active in preparations using my own made tools and we both have proven to have deep knowledge of most of the metagames in the tour. I also always make drafts based on meritocracy and I always give the chance to all my players to play. We surely have what it takes to be form a competitive team to try and win the tour while having fun.

Ubers Leader
Manager: Fc
Assistant Manager: Icemaster
Team Name: Soul-Stealing Seven-Star Solgaleos
List of Accomplishments: I won BLT last year and am 13-4 here lifetime playing multiple different tiers. I have also won SCL and a lot of other tournaments I have managed like UWTT and and OMPL. I also have strong individual results in lower tiers like Grand Slam semis so I can help out across all slots if necessary. Icemaster has won TPP a similar PS! tournament about 27 times in a row going strong and has also won many AG tournaments as a manager. He has also played in SCL in multiple tiers and done well historically.
Why would you make a Good Manager?: We are both very experienced in managing, I have managed more tournaments than I can remember now and also played in far more than that in pretty much every tier, so I can support almost anything as needed. We are a very adaptable manager pair, having won OMPL with little prior experience in the metagames due to making a strong team environment. We would now like to take our experience to BLT where we will try to make the best team possible to win.

OU Leader
Manager: 3d
Assistant Manager: Finchinator
Team Name: Operation: Ogerpon
List of Accomplishments: SPL XIV Finalist, SCL III Semifinalist, OUPL Semifinalist (Manager), BLT X Finalist, Overused Tier Leader, (Former) NU Tier Leader, NUCL Finalist, PUWC Semifinalist, UbersWC Semifinalist (Ongoing), SSPL Winner, BWPL Winner, TeamBallo 2023 Winner, PTPL Winner, RoAPL Winner, and many more.
Why would you make a Good Manager?:

I have been an active member in the tournament scene for about a year and a half now. I have interacted with many people throughout this time and have an excellent grasp of the notable players in many different tiers. This is exemplified in my participation in tournaments that diverge from Overused. PUWC, UbersWC, and NUCL are all some examples of this adherence to increasing knowledge regarding finding the most skilled players in this community. Paired with qualifying for and reaching the finals of BLT X, I also possess an exemplary understanding of the BLT community. That said, I will put in my best effort to ensure our team stands above all.

Shifting gears to my Assistant Manager Finchinator, not much needs to be said; one of the faces of Smogon and the tournament scene, he knows the community better than anyone else, and as a World Cup Champion, he knows what it takes to win. This is also exhibited on the managerial end; turning to his most recent OUPL, we see a #1 seed playoff berth. Both of us have also played in SCL, which shares a strikingly similar format to this tournament. Overall, we will be an earnest managerial pair, and our unrivalled experience and expertise within the specified metagames will foster an abundance of success for our team.

Manager: Howkings
Assistant Manager: mind gaming
Team Name: Demon Slayer Corps
List of Accomplishments: I have years of experience in managing official and unofficial team tournaments on Smogon, including last two editions of Smogon Champions League, which happen to have a quite similar format to BLT. Aside my official presence, I've joined dozens of unofficials through the years and won my fair share of them. Mind Gaming is a defending SCL Champion, has one of the best official sheet records in recent times, and much like me, has experience in managing both Official and unofficial team tournaments.

Why would you make a Good Manager?: Been looking forward to starting a new season of tournaments in the best possible way. I'm coming back these weeks from a brief pause that helped me collecting useful thoughts. I feel ready to put effort and give my best again. I am positive Mind feels the same way.
