OU & NU Leader
Welcome back to Smogon Grand Slam! The UU, RU, NU, PU, Ubers, and LC Opens will begin shortly, commencing the competition for the coveted turquoise Trophy (
The format starts with the regular season, which consists of six separate tournaments: The UU Open, The RU Open, The NU Open, The PU Open, The Ubers Open and the LC Open. You can join all six if you wish, but your top three performances only will be counted towards playoffs! This is because we have added a sixth open and adopted the best finish limit of three for this edition (NEW -- YES, BRAND NEW AND SHINY. VERY COOL!!!). The point system for the opens is the same as the one used in Smogon Tour, Smogon Classic and previous years of Smogon Grand Slam (see this for further explanation). When all the Opens have been finished, the sixteen players with the most points will qualify for playoffs, where the battlers will duke it out in a single elimination bracket until there is one Grand Slam XI champion.
Signups for each Open will be posted after the first round of the previous Open is completed. Here is the list of the six Opens and the dates each signups will be posted:
