Welcome to playoffs of Doubles Classic II! This tournament is functionally identical to The Smogon Classic; the preliminary stage consisted of three single elimination cups, one for each of the three past generations of Doubles OU. Players earned points from these cups using the Smogon Grand Slam point structure, which can be found here. The top 16 players after the conclusion of all 3 cups qualified for playoffs, which is a single-elimination bracket consisting of best-of-three multi-gen sets. When all is said and done, the top 32 players overall will earn Circuit Points according to the payout listed here.

Before we move on to playoffs, I wanted to say a massive thank you to DaWoblefet, Yoda2798, and zeefable for hosting BW Cup, XY Cup, and SM Cup, respectively. Their work in both running their individual cups and helping out with administrating the tournament overall was invaluable!

With the exception of the tiebreaker sets (detailed below), all sets in playoffs will function as follows:
  1. All sets will be best-of-three multigen sets.
  2. The player with the higher seed will choose which past generation is played first. They can choose any of SM, XY, or BW.
  3. The player who loses game 1 will choose the generation played for game 2.
  4. If necessary, game 3 will be played using the previously unused generation.

Speaking of seeds, we had some ties after the end of the our 3 preliminary cups. Thankfully, all ties could be broken using our two tiebreakers, so no tiebreaker matches are necessary this year. If two or more players are tied in points, these are the two tiebreakers used to seed them, in order:
  1. Best finish in an individual cup
  2. Win ratio across all cups
We had two instances of a tie across all 3 metrics not involving qualification for playoffs (see below), so those were broken via coin flip since they only affect seeding and not qualification.

There was also a 4-way tie for 16th between Actuarily, Sunrose, LightScreener, and Shadowmonstr7. The latter two players had a best result in an individual of 3rd round, while the former 2 players had a best result of 4th round. Therefore, Actuarily and Sunrose will play a tiebreaker for the 16th slot.

The seeds for DOU Classic II playoffs are as follows:
The full results after the end of the preliminary stage can be found here.

Good luck to all competitors, we're looking forward to some great sets!

Tiebreaker

Sunrose vs Actuarily

This tiebreaker match will function identically to other playoff matches, with the exception that SM must be played first. The loser of Game 1 may select either XY or BW for Game 2, then Game 3 (if necessary) will be played in the previously unselected metagame.

Please complete this tiebreaker ASAP so we can finish Top 16 on time!
