Welcome to the ninth edition of Doubles Premier League!
Our annual auction-style draft returns once more! This year we will feature 8 teams to fight it out over a 7 week round robin regular season. The top 4 teams at the end of that phase will move on to the playoffs, where after 2 weeks we will crown a new DPL Champion once again!

Prospective managers should read about the following rule changes. To reiterate: we are looking for 8 teams that will receive 100k credits each to draft a squad of 8 starting players and at least 2 substitutes. This edition will feature 3x SV and 1x SS, SM, XY, BW, DUU.

This year we add co-managers. Managers will be allowed to sign up with a co-manager, or alternatively choose a co-manager from their team after the draft. If a manager signs up with a co-manager, only one of them can be bought (and thus play). The other manager who is not bought cannot play at any phase, but will remain eligible for winner's prizes. Co-managers appointed after the draft will be allowed to play.

This year we adopt UUPL's formula for self-buying managers.
Manager prices are no longer a flat fee, but instead deduced by the following formula:
((max(10,000, last auction price) + 10,000 + (1,500 * all wins last DPL))/2) rounded up to the nearest .5k

Player signups will begin a week from now, on February 19.
Managers can sign up with the form below:

Why should you be a DPL manager?:
Last year I was Captain and the Lands made a good run and got top 2 in a very close tb. Other than that I am a player who has been playing DOU for a long time and I have participated in many team tours both as Captain and as player. Also, I think I know the community very well to create a team that can win the trophy.

Name: Arcticblast
Time zone: EST (GMT -5)
Significant time missed: None if there are no tiebreakers; if a tiebreaker is required, I will miss finals the first weekend of May. I will make sure to plan accordingly in the event this happens
Team: undetermined rn, not Storms though
Co-Manager: I'll draft someone
Why should I be a DPL manager?: I've successfully brought the Storms to strong finishes in the past, often drafting miniature armies onto my teams and using the extra voices to help prepare and keep each slot fresh. I'm familiar with multiple old gens, so I can make sure nobody gets left out to dry. also you can't get rid of me

Why should you be a DPL manager?: I have helped with the managing of US Central during DWCOP where we made play offs despite US Central imploding last time it was in dwcop. I played DOU back in gen 6 and kept up with it since so I have a good knowledge of what players are best in each tier. I can draw. Cool ice theme.

You're welcome!

5. Have been managing in DPL for a long time now and always draft well-regarded teams, with recent successful finishes. I'm also a frequent participant of DOU Tournaments, from various individual tours to team tournaments within our community and outside of it (OTTs and RoA Tours), which should show my familiarity within the tour scene and with fellow DOU players. Last and most importantly, I am one of the most prominent members of the DOU community as a whole, one of its biggest contributors and an active participant in its various affairs. Everyone in the community knows me, and I know most if not everyone here, making me the perfect fit for a DPL manager.

Why should you be a DPL manager?: I've been around DOU for a long time, played in a bunch of team tours and know the community pretty well, as well as having recently captained Team Italy in DWCOP with the best record in pools and coming really close to the final.

Significant time missed: March 20 - Apr 6
Co-manager name if applicable: umbry (+1, no time missed)
Team brand (name & logo): Slateport City Sp_ndas

Why should you be a DPL manager?:
I've managed in every DWCOP and last DPL, making playoffs 3/4 times. Umbry has been in countless team tours across multiple tiers usually shadow managing in them too (including my last dpl draft), as well as managing UUPL. We both have also played in a lot of officials and have been in DOU a while. We know what makes a good team, know the DOU playerbase and are motivated to create the best DPL team.

Why should you be a DPL manager?: Me and mishi have been around in the doubles community for like 7 years so 14 combined years if you really think about it. I have managed Team APAC twice in DWCOP and made it to the finals once. Meanwhile Mishi has been a consistent part of both individual and team tours for a while so we both know quite a bit about the doubles scene.
