  • Follow all rules listed here.​
  • Schedule via Smogon VMs. It's easier for me to make decisions for activity calls when I can actually see what went down with scheduling.​
  • If you are unable to schedule with your opponent, please let your managers know ASAP so they can communicate that to me or the other team's managers for a potential substitute.​
  • Substitutions may be made after a week has started. When making a substitution, please tag myself, the managers of the opposing team, and all of the players affected by the substitute to ensure that everyone is made aware. Players who have already played in the week or were subbed out in the same week cannot be subbed back in.​
  • If a match remains incomplete by the time of the deadline, it will be subject to an activity call.​
  • Replays are mandatory. Not only are they useful for confirming wins, they contribute to usage stats and allow the people who couldn't watch the games live to watch them later.​
  • Managers: Please send me your lineups in the same format that I used to post pairings. It makes it much easier to post future rounds more quickly.​

Predicts are no fun when you dont explain em. Cowards.

Sunyshore Snorlaxes (5) vs (5) Lavender Laprases
SV OU: Mimikyu Stardust vs Thiago Nunes - already happened but woulda bolded Nunes anayways
SV OU: Ferenia vs Stareal - Stareal has kept in form and should be a real threat in this pool, not counting Ferenia out tho
SV Ubers: Lasen vs PrinceOfAllTacos - ik poat has been playing a lotta ubers but I gotta give it to the actual ubers main
SV UU: Mimilucha vs Xiri - Xiri is just a stronger player overall imo but Mimi's uu experience could be instrumental here
SV RU: Trade vs temp - haven't seen any results from Trade in ru
SV NU: skierdude101 vs swinubfan44 - new blood nu vs oldhead nu, I think skier is more involved with the tier rn tho
SV PU: Drud vs RoFnA - this is a weird placement for RoFnA I highly rate him as a player but Drud actually plays the tier and is very good as well
SV LC: Hacker vs PolloAriosto - if Hacker loses this he is mega unviable
SV DOU: Ina fable vs SMB - there is a steep dropoff in the top dou from the rest of the pool, I'd bold Ina in other tiers but against SMB this is rough
SV Monotype: Mada vs sasha - interesting mu, I think Mada has been on a roll lately tho

Flameslingers Skeledirges (7) vs (3) Snowbelle Stuffuls
SV OU: JJ09LIE vs yone - already happened but woulda bolded JJ anyways thats my goat
SV OU: Exotic64 vs TDNT - has had better runs in team tours including a sick SPL record, ik that was in SS but his skills should surely translate to SV
SV Ubers: Skyiew vs Fc - Sky is a competent clicker that has a lotta potential in this pool but he got the worst draw w1 in the ubers goat
SV UU: justdrew vs Career Ended - I am very high on both of these guys but I think drew has way more uu credibility
SV RU: Feliburn vs TheFranklin - holy highlight match what the hell, could really go either way my pick doesn't matter here
SV NU: Axrtix vs Slip - Axrtix has made a name for himself on the nu scene after a phenomenal blt last year and he's only gotten better
SV PU: avarice vs sufys - ik sufys actually plays pu I just have more knowledge of avarice as a player
SV LC: Tempo di anguria vs bleahey - 2 of the more unsung lc picks in the tour, could go either way
SV DOU: Oblivion Wing vs Akaru Kokuyo - same situation with the dou dropoff
SV Monotype: twinkay vs StreetBoom - mono is a very weird pool in this tour so Ill just go for name recognition

Resort City Rufflets (4) vs (6) The LOOR Society
SV OU: MAVERICK SHOOTERS vs tier - I do believe in tier's ability but I think Mav has the experience edge on ou
SV OU: Vkhss vs Enzonana. - same reasoning as above
SV Ubers: RichardMillePlain vs Icemaster - talked to Richard pre-draft and his motivation seemed lackluster, he'll like reuse while Ice will actually try + has taka support
SV UU: dunoks vs Trogba Trogba - more invested in uu atm afaik
SV RU: Lime vs Ampha - both guys are underrated ru picks, gonna go with lime since he's had some very good performances lately
SV NU: Wadley vs Danny - another hl match, Danny best in the pool but I wouldn't be surprised at a Wadley win either
SV PU: TGA vs eternal ocean - tough one to call but ik eternal ocean actually ladders this
SV LC: Elfuseon vs Quinn - tossup imo some people say elfu is outta form but I think he'll put in the work, Quinn could def take this tho and will prolly even be favored by a lotta people
SV DOU: Loudwinner vs Railgun - same deal as the other 2 dou series
SV Monotype: fatBatman vs Sificon - more experience with mono afaik

fragments is right people who just do predicts and not say anything else are boring as hell

SV LC: STarsAma vs Greedy_eb - Greedy is in pretty decent form right now w/ a good showing in LCWC but I've been high on Starsama stocks for a while and they have had a good past few tours and had a solid run in ssnl iirc. Could go eitherway but Starsama is winning this one - may we just pray Greedy has viable internet to actually play the game :worrywhirl:

SV LC: Tempo di anguria vs bleahey - tbh im not entirely familiar with either of these people but i like bleahey and iirc they are doing pretty well in the current LC teamtour going on

SV LC: Elfuseon vs Quinn - both players are off of solid if not great showings in LCWC so this is probably the highlight of this week. i favor quinn more mostly because I've never really seen Quinn perform bad and I liked some of the teams they made for LCWC while elfus team was quite prone to overcooking and the sort. i think quinn will just have better teamchoice and is slightly favored player wise with the levels of consistency i have seen from them


may we have a good week in the first week of tomato lettuce bacon. go snorlaxes!!!!!
 
Predicts are no fun when you dont explain em. Cowards.
will do

SV OU: 3d vs Suzuya 3d's the better player w more experience
SV OU: Batzi vs velvet is more solid with ou
SV Ubers: 7u9i2 vs Ainzcrad close one, could go either way, trust ainz to pull through though
SV UU: Rasche vs jawabarat Idk Rasche and jawa is the goat so..
SV RU: JustFranco vs feen I have seen franco play RU, I have not seen feen play RU
SV NU: Stories vs Shengineer More experienced
SV PU: DripLegend vs fish anemometer More experienced
SV LC: STarsAma vs Greedy_eb Idk other guy
SV DOU: eragon vs Penter experience goes a long way
SV Monotype: RoyalReloaded vs Azick monotype, need i say more?

Flameslingers Skeledirges (4) vs (6) Snowbelle Stuffuls
SV OU: JJ09LIE vs yone
SV OU: Exotic64 vs TDNT I can see exotic winning this game, coming off a win vs Finchinator in ADPL just last week, but i trust TDNT more to win, coming off a very nice spl.
SV Ubers: Skyiew vs Fc Idk oppo, its also Fc in ubers
SV UU: justdrew vs Career Ended Probably personal bias just wanna see career win :bloblul:
SV RU: Feliburn vs TheFranklin hl game of the week, going to be a nice watch vs 2 very experienced ru players, expect franklin to take it, just barely.
SV NU: Axrtix vs Slip This guy smoked me last BLT how can i not hl them
SV PU: avarice vs sufys More experienced, good luck to sufys though
SV LC: Tempo di anguria vs bleahey Idk either, had a look through their posts and saw bleahey posts more in lc focused placed so..
SV DOU: Oblivion Wing vs Akaru Kokuyo I haven't seen Oblivion Wing play dou, mabye ill be surpised who knows
SV Monotype: twinkay vs StreetBoom Idk other guy, but is still monotype so who knows

Resort City Rufflets (3) vs (7) The LOOR Society
SV OU: MAVERICK SHOOTERS vs tier When maverick is determined they are a tough hurdle to jump over, learned this through watching him prep for oupl, I also don't know how experienced tier is in OU.
SV OU: Vkhss vs Enzonana. This one will probably be quite close, nana is quite capable of playing, so is vkhss, coinflipped tbh.
SV Ubers: RichardMillePlain vs Icemaster I see Icemaster as the better overall player, just determines on how much he cares about it
SV UU: dunoks vs Trogba Trogba Same as above
SV RU: Lime vs Ampha I haven't watched much of Lime playing mons, so going for Ampha
SV NU: Wadley vs Danny This will be a nice game with 2 experienced nu players, expecting danny to take the edge just slightly
SV PU: TGA vs eternal ocean Idk who eternal ocean is
SV LC: Elfuseon vs Quinn I expect elfuseon to do very well in this LC pool, dont think they'll lose here
SV DOU: Loudwinner vs Railgun Didn't know either, had to look who Railgun and Loudwinner was, figured out it was Railgun was luisin and bolded pretty simple
SV Monotype: fatBatman vs Sificon monotype

I COULD BE BANNED!
SV LC: STarsAma vs Greedy_eb star did good in LCWC but he played SS a completely different gen then SV while greedy went 6-0 iirc
SV LC: Hacker vs PolloAriosto hacker is weird but who is polloariosto? if hacker loses this blud is never getting picked again
SV LC: Tempo di anguria vs bleahey bleahey has been doing decent in LPL, but Tempo has really good support, both homies this is gonna be a heat mu.
SV LC: Elfuseon vs Quinn elfu is washed need I say more?
LETS FUCKING GO TEAM
 
QoB's UU predict's

:azumarill: :azumarill: :azumarill:

SV UU: Rasche vs jawabarat
Rasche went positive in UUPL with some great wins against established players like Vivalospride. I don't really know a lot about Jawa but i haven't liked their teams in UUFPL very much.

SV UU: Mimilucha vs Xiri
Although Xiri is solid i don't think they have played very much SV UU recently. Mimilucha is often laddering and played the tier in UUPL so i give the edge to them.

SV UU: justdrew vs Career Ended
Career ended is cooking in UUFPL with a 4-0 record vs some solid opponents and they have support from Slip whereas Drew has none.

SV UU: dunoks vs Trogba Trogba
I rate Dunoks very highly as a player and I am not much of a fan of the way Trogba builds their teams.

No one expected me here, I'm in the mood for uu predicts.

SV UU: Rasche vs jawabarat
Jawa can cook super hard and is also coming off of a semi-recent drewvitational win against some great players. I've seen how much they can prep and they're willing to explore the tier, so I'd generally expect a better team from them. Rasche also knows the tier of course and I rate both players about equally in terms of playing abilities, so it could go either way, but I think jawa has the edge here.

SV UU: Mimilucha vs Xiri
I haven't watched Mimilucha play in a while, but they've pretty much always been solid in the tier and plays it consistently. I'm not super familiar with Xiri, but I'd assume they're the better player from what I've heard, but it's not enough for me to put it above Mimilucha's expertise in the tier.

SV UU: justdrew vs Career Ended
Drew has had some very solid results in the past year or so, but I'm not sure he's especially consistent and I've definitely seen him cook too hard for his own good. Career is good enough to the point that they probably just take it as long as they have a solid team.

SV UU: dunoks vs Trogba Trogba
I feel like dunoks has been kinda slumping in the past year or so and their participation in other UU tours have been much lower. Trogba hasn't really had any results that stand out to me, but they've been able to take on decent players and consistently perform reasonably well, so unless dunoks manages to readjust the curve they've been following for the past few months, I think Trogba takes it.
