Welcome to the first ever Most Wanted, an all-Ubers team tournament where six team captains draft players to assassinate others and amass huge sums of bounty for the glory of Ubers supremacy. This is a brand-new tournament uses a snake draft, flexible tier pools, a fresh new bounty system, and tournament assassinations. The winning team will be crowned when their total bounty surpasses 300,000 or are the highest team standing after seven rounds. As a player you have one mission: take out your opponents, and on your terms.

I’ll be your host along with Nayrz.

- General tournament rules and regulations apply. Pokemon Showdown is the default simulator for all metagames unless both parties agree. If you play on anywhere that isn't PS! you must save a log of the match. All matches are best of one.

We reserve the right to judge any individual match on a case by case basis, regardless of assumed precedence set. If you don't like that, you are welcome to not play. Be aware of this.

To protect yourself as much as possible from DCs and timer issues, play on Showdown (because it has an at least semi reliable system of rejoining after a DC) and make a gentleman's agreement to not hit timer.

To help handle all DC cases you will need to submit your teams to the host before the match. You do not have to submit, but if you do, you protect yourself from the opponent taking a win. It's a simple procedure that removes most subjectivity from a decision regarding a DC. Unlike with the scheduling restrictions, all you have to do is submit the team you are using at anytime before the match takes place. Read this rule and understand this now before you join the tournament. Since I'm stating this now, I'm basically going to ignore you if you DC, didn't submit a team, and "had a guaranteed win." Expect it. Also note that I'm going to let the player (not the team), decide whether he is going to take the win or go another route (replay same moves, replay different teams, etc.).

Regarding time outs, they are a bit more complex, specifically because some timeouts are due to DCs. The best we can do for this scenario is say that there is some number between 1 minute and 2 minutes (which we will not publicize) that we will set as a limit for timing out, and if you timeout with more than that limit time remaining, we'll assume it is a DC, whereas the opposite is a true timeout. A true timeout defaults to a loss, while the DC timeout is prone to the DC rules (did you submit or not).

Lets try and win this tour from this week Hitmen! I will try to do predicts since we are in pretty far state in the tournament.

SS
(!) Ballfire (26,000) [TSD] vs. Reje (32,000) [AAS] - Reje is the favorite here, both judging on plays and building (he has Hack in the back too), but Ballfire has impressed me. This is a lot closer that it might seem, but i will edge reje.
Skysolo (19,500) [SSF] vs. Exiline (15,000) [TSD] - Big match between two good ubers players, could go either way. Havent seen much from both in SS to be able to make a safer prefiction.
crucify (10,500) [HHM] vs. 0kay (9,500) [SSF] - Hitmenoat
GotCookies (3,500) [AAS] vs. ice-master-523 (2,500) [SSF] - I think ice master got this based on what i have seen until now.


USM
(!) Kebabe (55,500) [SSF] vs. Garay oak (98,000) [HHM] - Hitmenoat
The Dovahneer (71,000) [HHM] vs. Dominatio (35,500) [HHM] - Hitmenoat
March Fires (31,500) [CCK] vs. byronthewellwell (25,500) [SSF] - Both solid players, i think MF matches up better vs byron teamswise while playingwise both are close. With a good mu MF is a clear favorite for me.
(!) Aishia (23,000) [HHM] vs. Hugo Barrington (11,000) [AAS] - Hitmenoat
iry (14,000) [AAS] vs. SiTuM (11,500) [TSD] - Battle of goats, idk why Situm got back in USM after having a solid tour in SS. This is going to be close but i will have to favorite iry due to his experience, but like i said above it is a lot closer than it seems.
Royal1604 (8,500) [CCK] vs. Megazard (5,000) [BBD] - Both have some ok results in ubers, Megazard tends to cheese in order to get his wins so i will go with Royal here.


ORAS
Enzo Gorlami (16,500) [BBD] vs. Serga (14,500) [HHM] - Hitmenoat
Sitonai (8,500) [AAS] vs. dream (5,500) [BBD] - Close match both friends. Dream has been doing well prepwise and playingwise while Sitonai is a bit shaky in game. Sitonai has good teambuilding support so with a good mathup he could emerge victorious, but i will give the edge to Dream.
SparksBlade (4,500) [AAS] vs. Catalystic (2,500) [SSF] - Sparks has been solid in ORAS, while i am not familiar with Cata in this gen. Sparks should be able to come through.

@Nayrz edit: tiers with 0 or 1 matchups die the week after - it means teams didn't draft for or populate those generations.
i mean both kebabe and dovahneer have BW in their sign-ups and are on different teams and that's just the top 3 players left... but the gen still died

They have to be in the tier that week for that to matter. If there's less than two matchups (aka <4 players picked a gen in any given week) it dies.
