Welcome to the seventh Ghosting Tournament and the first in the SS OU meta! For the most part, the rules are the same from last time. I'll mark the rules that are different with a :blobstop:.

Battle Rules:
  • Best of 1. If you tie, you'll need to repeat.
  • Standard SS OU rules apply. If a change is made to the tier (a mon is banned/unbanned), the change doesn't go into effect until the next round.
  • (:blobstop:) Public Room: If you're playing on Main, please make the room public. You're going to have to post a replay anyway so there's no point in hiderooming. If your room is hidden, type /modjoin off and /publicroom.
  • (:blobstop:)Timer: Do NOT turn on the timer in your battle until after 30 minutes have passedsince it started. Use the servertime command to keep track of this (see below). This is to allow enough time to properly ghost.
    • In order to keep track of 30 minutes, type !servertime in the chat when the battle begins. Type !servertime in the chat again when you want to turn the timer on. Agreement from both sides is not required.
    • If you're on SmogTours, ask anyone that has a %, @, or ~ next to their name to turn off the timer in your battle. Try to make sure that a staff member is online before you start playing. If there isn't one, play on Main.
  • Replays: you must post a replay of your win. You can hide it or unlist it, but you have to post it.
Ghosting Rules:
  • You can ghost (clue's in the name).
  • Teams can be at minimum 3 and at maximum 5.
  • There should be at least 3 players from a team present at a battle, so it's probably a good idea to form a team with similar timezones and availabilities.
  • You must post logs of your ghosting along with your replay in your winpost (losers are also encouraged to post logs but are not required).
    • (:blobstop:) If you're playing on Main, make a groupchat (/makegroupchat) to do your ghosting. It makes it easy to just copy and paste the logs into a pastebin.
    • If you're playing on SmogTours, use Discord, but make sure to copy and paste your logs while in compact mode.
    • If you're in a voice call, you'll need to record a video and audio of your call and, if possible, the battle. Upload it to YouTube
  • Please ghost in English!
Other than that, all tournament rules and guidelines apply (minus the ones about ghosting, obviously). Failure to comply with these rules will result in a loss or a coinflip.

Signups are now open! Remember, 3 members minimum, 5 members maximum.
  • Only the captain of a team needs to post. Captains: make sure to tag every member on your team.
  • Don't post to confirm; that just clutters up the thread (PM me if you're on a team you didn't agree to).
  • Captains can decide a teamname and an image to be associated with - don't be stupid with this.
  • People not on a team can post to be a free agent. Depending on signup numbers I may or may not form free agent teams. Priority will obviously go to complete teams.
Signups will be open for about a week, depending on the signup numbers.

Good luck and have fun!
