Welcome to the Winter Seasonal Sign Up thread! Post in bellow if you're interested and have read the whole OP!​
  • All matches will be played with the CAP ruleset at the beginning of the round. E.G. Greninja may be banned two days after the round has started but Greninja will still be usable for the remainder of the round.
  • All matches will be a BO3 or Best of Three. You may switch teams in between games. You do not have to play all three matches if one person wins the first two though.
  • Replays must be saved and posted when claiming a victory / posting losses. No replay, no win, no exceptions. If participants fail to follow this rule, the match will go up on a coin flip.
  • Matches can be played on Pokemon Showdown OR Smogtours.
  • Activity calls will be dealt by on a case-by-case scenario, but generally just get your matches done. If it is impossible to due within the timeframe you may ask for an extension but please post it in the thread.
  • This tournament is Single Elimination. If you're out, you're out of this seasonal for good.
  • Schedule your matches. If one fails to communicate with another then the match will not be coin flipped and the user that tried to actively get the matches will get the win
Ranking System

There will be 4 tournaments, 1 for every season. Depending on where you place in each tournament you will be rewarded with points. At the end of all the seasonals the top 16 points will be invited to the Champions Cup.

This edition of the CAP Seasonal will be handling points differently. In the previous seasonal, you gained points for winning matches which allowed people in the earlier stages in the tournament to get points easier, especially due to activity calls. Now to make qualifying into the Challenge Cup harder and more prestigious, you will only be awarded points based on where you place in this tournament.

Placement Rewards:

1st Place: 25
2nd Place: 16
3rd/4th Place: 12
5th/8th Place: 7
9th/16th Place: 3

Current Qualifiers:
1.) xavgb [25]
2.) Rifou88 [16]
3.) Heaven Jay [12]
4.) Nurul [12]
5.) pythonSL [7]

Why should I play?
Although this tournament isn't anything different than your standard ladder play, this tournament may be the chance to help you get recognized for bigger CAP tournaments like CAPTT. Also if do well in the seasonals, you may have a chance to play in a Champion's Cup tournament which will be of the highest quality and difficulty. And finally this tournament should help to develop and underplayed metagame and potentially find new and unexplored things about CAP.

I'd just like to say. I do expect cap to try much harder in this seasonal than it did in the previous one, which had people such as Jay not even warmed up for most of the tournament and losing because of it. This is my most successful seasonal on record, and I wish you all good luck. Remember to try your hardest and to really put on a show for the community. These seasonals are very important to how people perceive the growth of the metagame and its respective players. (This is also a good way to show your skill and punch your ticket into CC, as Stresh did in fall.) Good luck to everyone and please try your hardest.
