[Banner by in the hills]

Welcome to Player Signups for the fourth edition of the Hindi Premier League! I (Eseque) am hosting this tournament.

This is a team tour with 8 teams. Each team will consist of 12 players, 8 of which will start. 6 out of the 8 starters have to be of Indian origin/speak Hindi, and the rest is open to the public. Similarly, 9 of the 12 players in a team have to be of Indian origin/speak Hindi.

The 8 slots in the tournament are: SV OU, SV OU, SV Ubers, SV UU, SV LC, SV Monotype, SV 1v1, and SV Random Battle

The tournament will start in late August and will last for at least 9 weeks. A snake draft will be conducted in mid-August to pick the players.

Teams will be fighting in a round robin where every team will play every other team. At the end of the round robin, the top four teams will move on to the playoffs where the first seed will play the fourth seed and the second seed will play the third seed to determine who will be this year’s finalists. A win will be worth 2 points, a draw 1, and a loss 0.

Activity Calls

Make contact with your opponents! Every season we have to make activity calls that displease one party member. To prevent this, post a VM on their Smogon wall to try to set a date for the battle. If you do this via any other medium, save logs and screenshots so that in the event of an activity call, you get it to go your way. Leave time zones, preferred time to play, and be specific. No activity calls will be made if neither team's players or managers post about it, so take initiative on that.

Dead Games

In the event that a game is not played and neither teams post for an activity call, it will be declared a dead game, which means that the game will be taken as to not exist. This will also be the case if an activity post is made but neither players showed a satisfactory level of activity. Schedule properly to not let these occur!

What if there is a tie?

This tournament will use standard tiebreaking procedures.
