GSC Cup Round 5

Tournament Rules:
  • General tournament rules and regulations can be found here.
  • Smogon Classic rules can be read here
  • Standard GSC OU
  • Best of three, single elimination
  • Battles should take place on Pokemon Showdown!
  • Do not make baseless activity posts -- get in contact with your opponent and report missed times / scheduling issues only
This is just a small snippet of the full rules, which one can find here!

Identity

About playing on alts: It is entirely allowed to play on an alt other than your own main forum name, though if your opponent wishes to confirm your identity, you must log on to your main alt to show them you are who you claim to be. This is to prevent people from pretending to be who they're not.

About playing on different servers: Tournament matches must be played on the Smogtours server. The Main PS! server is also acceptable if both parties agree to that. Other servers are not sanctioned by the TD team and playing in them might result in your game not counting. Protect yourself from that by playing in Smogtours, where we also have the power to recreate games that end due to DC's.

Scouting

On scouting opponents: Going through your opponents replays of tournament and ladder games is entirely allowed, as long as a game is public there is nothing preventing you from watching it. An exception to this is abusing powers granted to you by being staff on Smogon or PS! to gain access to information a normal user wouldn't have access to, which is strictly forbidden.

On leaking teams: Divulging private information about someone's planned team to their opponent is never allowed, and will be heavily sanctioned. Requesting that such information be divulged is also grounds for punishment. Keep your scouting to publicly available information and you'll be fine.

Timer Clause / Disconnections

On the Timer: The timer must stay on throughout the whole battle..

On Timeout losses: A player that loses by having all his time run out loses the game. This is only not the case if the player that received the timeout loss can be verified to have suffered a True Disconnection. Rematches are only allowed if there was a True Disconnection.

On True Disconnection: The TD team has a secret threshold of seconds that your timer must be at or above, from the moment you disconnect, for a timeout loss to be considered a True disconnection. If your game is determined to be a true disconnection if you played on Smogtours and contacted a TD before the room expired your game will be recreated up to the point the disconnect happened. It is the responsibility of the player that disconnected to get a TD into the room before it expires.

Battle Clauses:
  • Evasion Clause
  • OHKO Clause
  • Sleep Clause
  • Species Clause
  • Timed Battle
  • Freeze Clause
  • Sleep Trap Clause: Pokemon can't have (Sing/Sleep Powder/Hypnosis/Lovely Kiss/Spore) + (Mean Look/Spider Web) in the same moveset
Pairings:

Earthworm vs Pohjis
Alexander. vs TonyFlygon
Tamahome vs Kingler12345
Ojama vs Jytcampbell
Shoka vs Descending
Lavos vs Hamhamhamham
choolio vs Djokra
rozes vs McMeghan
FlamingVictini vs Watchog
frisoeva vs Malekith
Flares. vs ABR
SaDiSTiCNarwhal vs Heroic Troller

The deadline Round 5 is May 26th at 23:59 GMT -4. Good luck and have fun!

As posted on Discord, you'll have until next Wednesday (29th May) 23:59 GMT -4 to play your match. Take note that I want the scheduling to be public this time for this set.

activity. my opponent started playing for rby cup like 2 minutes before our scheduled time (that he proposed) for some reason and is still playing 38 minutes after our scheduled time as i'm posting this.
sorry man, but you said you were free all sunday, if you want we can play later, otherwise its ok

also id have played you at the same time if you pmd me on the server tbh
Alexander. was wrong to start another cup match when he was supposed to play Tony, but Tony also could have PMd Alexander. to ask if he could play both matches. Ideally, I'd consider it just a coinflip scenario (like the post above) but considering how far we are It's better if you two got to play. Deadline is Wednesday at 23:59 GMT -4 and I want the scheduling to be public as well.
