Introduction

Major League is back!

Once again it will be a gens 1-6 OU league consisting of 4 conferences, groups of either 9 players each, leading into playoffs. Each player in each group will play all others in the group once home and away, earning a point for each win, with tied battles not counting (gen 1-4 ties must be repeated). Home is playing your selected tier and away is playing your opponent's selected tier (playing the same tier twice possibly). Each conference will have at 1 or 2 players for each OU tier. So players play 9 or 10 battles of their selected OU tier and 6 or 7 of other OU tiers. There will ideally be 6 players each gen 1-6 OU who play the tier home. Conferences will also roughly correspond to time zones. The Top 4 ranked players from each conference will be seeded into the Major League RoA playoffs, consisting of a round of 16, quarter-finals, semi-finals and finals, all first-to-3-wins.

Due to the type and limited size of the tournament, players will be approved to compete by the hosts. Two factors will be considered when approving players: primarily, a very good commitment to play tournament matches (i.e. it's rare for them to have dead games, activity awarded against them or be subbed out); secondarily, a good reputation for being fiercely competitive (i.e. they have good tournament results). This year a team of Eseque, Mister Tim, phosphor and myself will each be responsible for a conference and also equally share the hosting of the overall tournament. Lutra will host the spreadsheet as usual.

The tournament is planned to last a total of 6 weeks - 4 weeks for qualification and 2 weeks for playoffs. Players will play 2 opponents home and away each week in qualification, while in the playoffs players will take turns to pick tiers from gens 1-6 OU, the player with the highest seed picking first. #1-#4 playoff seeds will be assigned to each of the 1st ranked players in their conference, while #5-#8 will be assigned to 2nd and so on, with most wins, least adjudged wins, least deadline violations determining the subranking.
