Official Smogon Tournament XVI - Round 2-A (Pokémon Home NOT ALLOWED this round)

Not open for further replies.
My opponent has just answered to me yesterday whereas I conatcted him several times since the beginning of Round 2, we are going to schedule
Activity win request.
I contacted him very early, I got an answer only after the 2nd week, I offered to play on Friday, he refused for this weekend and here he tells me that he cannot play this weekends and request to play later, unfortunately I cannot play on extension days, I really did my best to play.
I had no contact with my opponent during the period, I sent a message on his profile, but with no answers. He hasn't accessed the forum in almost a month.

Round 2 will continue to be the pre-Home metagame. Changes as a result of Pokemon Home's release (both additional Pokemon and newly available moves) will NOT be permitted until Round 3.

Welcome to the second round of this year's Official Smogon Tournament! The OST is one of Smogon's longest standing traditions in tournaments and has crowned many great Pokémon players as its champions across five generations. Over the next few months, thousands* (!) of players will compete to the best of their ability as they attempt to join the exclusive ranks of the OST trophy holders. Only one of those players will succeed in their journey and earn the recognition that comes with their victory, along with the iconic OST trophy.

The tournament will have a best of three format. This means that players will play until one of them wins two games. Players are allowed to switch teams in between games, or use the same team throughout the set; it is completely up to the player. If players only partially complete a series before the deadline, it will be considered an uncompleted match and action will be taken accordingly (either an activity win or a coin flip).

Just like last year, there will be a cash prize for this tournament! The winner of this year's Official Smogon Tournament will receive 200 USD!

If there are any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to me or another TD team member!

About Activity Decisions

Activity Decisions / Coin Flips
: In the event that there is an uncompleted match at the deadline, it will be coin flipped unless one or both of the players involved in the match specifically request an activity win and explain sufficiently why they deserve to win over their opponent. Attempting to schedule a battle is required in order to receive the win by activity. To make it clear that you are requesting an activity win when you post, you must open your post with "Activity Win Request" in bold.

For example, if you believe your opponent is making an unfair request and that they don't deserve the activity win over you, you can either make your own request or quote their post and explain why they don't deserve it. You should try to make your activity win request posts at least 24 hours before the deadline to give your opponent a reasonable opportunity to contest it with their own activity win request.

In case of disconnections, if you played in the SmogTours server, call a Tournament Director as soon as possible and we'll see about the possibility of having a rematch.

Deadline is Sunday, February 23rd, Midnight EST.
I won my set but forgot to save the replay for game 2
Game 1:
Game 3:
My opponent missed a time and we kind of failed to successfully reschedule multiple times. I caught him on ps once but he somehow logged off as soon as i messaged him.
He did ask me to play tomorrow tho and id be happy to play him then so asking for 1 day extension i guess?
