Ever been interested in CAP? Here's a great way to learn more about it! Come to compete and watch battles featuring our custom creations. The CAP metagame consists of OU-legal Pokemon plus all CAP Pokemon. Find our forum here to join the creation process. Join our Pokemon Showdown room here to discuss the metagame and teambuilding with our community.

With CAP 28 already on its final competitive stages, it's time to start thinking about testing our latest creation. This tournament is designed to let everyone interested have a chance at playing with our newest CAP and to provide us with valuable information about how it works out in a competitive environment. The winner of this tournament will earn a commemorative forum banner!
Tournament Rules:
  • All general tournament rules apply.
  • The first 3 rounds of the tournament are on Swiss format with 2 games won required in order to advance. From Round 4 onwards this will change to a single elimination format.
  • The upcoming Crown Tundra additions won't be allowed until Round 4. (CAP usually follows the OU banlist but it has been decided that for the first 2 weeks after the Crown Tundra drops, the playtest will continue using the pre-DLC. This will give time for the metagame to properly stabilize after all the while also giving us some more time to test CAP 28 on its intended metagame.) You can see the full list of banned Pokemon below.
  • All matches are best of three.
  • Matches can be played on Smogtours or the main server.
  • All replays are mandatory.
In case you're new, please check this Tournament Scheduling Guide. This should instruct you on how to contact your opponent.

hey pals this stuff is just the cliffnotes, for the full list of rules for Smogon Tournaments check here

Identity

About playing on alts: It is entirely allowed to play on an alt other than your own main forum name, though if your opponent wishes to confirm your identity, you must log on to your main alt to show them you are who you claim to be. This is to prevent people from pretending to be who they're not.

About playing on different servers: Tournament matches must be played on the Smogtours server. The Main PS! server is also acceptable if both parties agree to that. Other servers are not sanctioned by the TD team and playing in them might result in your game not counting. Protect yourself from that by playing in Smogtours, where we also have the power to recreate games that end due to DC's.

Scouting

On scouting opponents: Going through your opponents replays of tournament and ladder games is entirely allowed, as long as a game is public there is nothing preventing you from watching it. An exception to this is abusing powers granted to you by being staff on Smogon or PS! to gain access to information a normal user wouldn't have access to, which is strictly forbidden.

On leaking teams: Divulging private information about someone's planned team to their opponent is never allowed, and will be heavily sanctioned. Requesting that such information be divulged is also grounds for punishment. Keep your scouting to publicly available information and you'll be fine.

Timer Clause / Disconnections

On the Timer: The timer must stay on throughout the whole battle..

On Timeout losses: A player that loses by having all his time run out loses the game. This is only not the case if the player that received the timeout loss can be verified to have suffered a True Disconnection. Rematches are only allowed if there was a True Disconnection.

On True Disconnection: The TD team has a secret threshold of seconds that your timer must be at or above, from the moment you disconnect, for a timeout loss to be considered a True disconnection. If your game is determined to be a true disconnection if you played on Smogtours and contacted a TD before the room expired your game will be recreated up to the point the disconnect happened. It is the responsibility of the player that disconnected to get a TD into the room before it expires.​

The Number Man and Boat have completed their games, so I'm tagging the new pairing:


As The Number Man has won their two first games, they'll get a bye this week.

Additionally, it seems like I screwed up a matchup, as zio is supposed to be playing instead of Amamama, the right pairing would be:

zio vs Spyro

I apologize for the mistake and if anyone else who won or lost the first two games is playing in this round, please let me know so I can replace you with the right person.

Alright, time's up for the extensions. giove97 gets the activity win over cooliousus , as the latter hasn't replied back to the former's PMs since Monday. Binacleisthebest vs eblurb is being coinflipped, as the game hasn't been played yet and neither side has claimed activity.

(Done in the CAP PS Room)
New matchups:

Profecespoopypants  vs  cooliousus
yuykoko  vs  eblurb

Please contact your opponent as soon as possible.
 
Whoops. Forgot to note that I got back to Orig Stall Guy on Thursday (or Wednesday? this week is a bit of a blur) with plans for this weekend. So I guess we'll get it done today or tomorrow, especially since I'm going to just sit on PS for the next couple of hours before I have to do other things.
