Welcome to the first annual Hackmons Cup Open! This tournament is your chance to showcase your skills in Gen 8 Hackmons Cup in a single elimination best-of-3 series (best-of-5, quarterfinals onward).

This tournament is part of our ongoing Rands Slam circuit. Stay tuned after this tour for news about the next one!

Prizes

The winner of the Hackmons Cup Open will receive the Room Prize Winner rank in the Random Battles room for a month, be inducted into the Randbats Hall of Fame, and be awarded points for the Rands Slam. The winner of the Slam Playoffs Round will get a Smogon banner for a full year, along with a month-long Room Prize Winner rank and joinphrase.

How does the tour work?
It’s simple:
1. Contact your opponent on their Smogon wall and decide on a time to battle.
2. Battle each other in the format “[Gen 8] Hackmons Cup”.
3. The first player to 2 wins (3, quarterfinals onward) advances to the next round.

Please note:
1. All scheduling attempts MUST be done publicly on Smogon Walls. No other proof of communication will count for act calls regarding scheduling attempts.
2. You MUST post replays of your wins.

We strongly recommend familiarizing yourself with the Smogon Tournament Rules and General Guidelines, if you haven’t already. If you have further questions, don’t hesitate to contact the tour hosts, Tarrembeau or me, here on Smogon.

When spectating Rands Slam battles, do not ghost. Ask yourself, “Would my comment reveal information that hasn’t already been explicitly revealed in this battle?” Examples of ghosting include pointing out that an unexpectedly fast Pokemon must be holding a Choice Scarf, that a Zoroark’s disguised level proves it’s a Zoroark, etc.

How do I sign up?

Just post “in”!

The deadline for signups is 11:59 PM GMT-7, on Sunday May 8th, 2022.

Good luck and have fun to everyone taking part!
