Introduction

BW OU Global Championship is a standard BW OU Tournament with a goal to find the best BW OU player of the year.
The defending champion is SoulWind.
Each round will consist of 2 stages. The first stage each player will be given 2 sets of pairings, in which they play a best-of-3 vs their opponent. After the first stage is completed and the host has determined wins, players who win both their matches go through to the next round, while players who lost twice are eliminated. The players who won 1, lost 1, battle it out in a tiebreaker FT2W in stage 2 to join the two-time winners in the next round (or the player wins the tournament in the case of a final). If a 3-way final, a 3-man FT2W round robin will determine the winner of the tournament (repeated if necessary).

The prize returns from last year: a $50 (or equivalent) amazon gift card will be given out to the winner!
The winner will also earn the right to display
in their signature.

I "won" in 3 games vs Vulpix, but he forfeited g3 when he was in a likely winning position after getting fortunate earlier in the game. It was not near a 100% (a lot depended on two sets on his team), but idk what the ruling on that would be. I really just don't want any trouble for me or my opponent here; he obviously was not trying to be malicious, he's a good dude who probably felt bad about getting lucky, and it was not a 100% win for him at that point. I can send the replay to the host if needed.

e: lost to umbreon in 3, ggs
