How Spotlight League works:
There are 6 teams. Each team will have have 6 players and at least 2 subs. The players are bought using the 80k credits that managers receive during the auction. Managers will be able to self-purchase for 16k. For the following 5 weeks teams will face off against each other, where winning a round earns 2 points and tying earns 1 point. After the 5th week, the two teams with the most points will advance to the finals where a champion will be crowned.



The list of formats for this year's Spotlight League is as follows:
Teams:
Sleepy Slowkings - Dr. Phd. BJ
Dubwool Entendres - Quantum Tesseract & willdbeast
UwUrshifus - The Number Man & Lasen
Stinky Stunkys - emillight & Kris
Blue-Striped Form
Black Magic Basculegions - jasprose
Magearna Magi - Chazm

All games will be played on the Pokemon Showdown main server or SmogTours in the most current version of the format corresponding to those listed above. The result between players may be decided in a best-of-one or best-of-three at the discretion of both players involved. If there is no agreement, the result will decided in a Bo1 by default.

Winning a round rewards a team with 2 points, drawing 1 point, and losing zero points. In addition, the manner in which the round has been won will also be recorded i.e. the difference between a team's wins and losses in a specific week's round (referred to as "Win Differential").

Playoffs:
Each team will play one another for five weeks. Based on the final standings, the top 2 teams will appear in the finals and face off for victory.

Tiebreaker
In the event of two teams being tied for a spot in the finals based on points and win differential, or a tie in the final round itself, we will have a tiebreaker round(s).

Tiebreaker Rules: One metagame will be picked by each manager with the higher seed picking second. The third format will be determined at random by the hosts. All three metagames must be unique, so no format can be picked twice.

Substitutes
Substitutes are to be used in the case of extenuating circumstances, whether on the first day of the week, or the last. At the same time, players should be relatively well-aware of who all are available to play in the opponent's camp. If last minute substitutes are being frequently used or abused and the hosts find explanations unsatisfactory, the hosts still reserve the right to veto them. In order to further prevent this being the case teams are only granted a maximum of two substitutes per week. Any substitutions after the second will be vetoed.

Trades
The hosts have decided to not include trades this year due to reasons outlined in this thread - all roster decisions will be final, so draft carefully!

Sportsmanship
Players and managers displaying poor sportsmanship will be subject to punishment, including potential removal from the tournament, at the discretion of the tour hosts. This includes:
  • Inappropriate nicknames: Games in which a player uses nicknames that break PS! rules will be forfeited, and the player will be removed from the tour. Replays are required for this tour, so it is important that PS! and Smogon rules are followed in these games.
  • Toxic Behavior: Insulting, flaming, and intentional timer stalling are some examples of toxic behavior. Instances of toxic behavior will be reviewed, and the appropriate punishment will be handed out at the discretion of the hosts and OM forum moderators.

Submitting Player Lineups

Since everyone now has their players, here's how to submit lineups to be used for OMSL weeks.

A week will last from Monday morning to Sunday night, so be sure to get your lineups in before Monday morning at the very least. The deadline for submitting lineups will be at 9:59 PM GMT -4, and failure to do so will result into randomization of your lineup for week one, or reuse of your previous week's lineup. Any illegal lineups will result in randomization or reuse of lineups. Any changes to said lineup afterwards will have to be done by using your two substitutes. We will send out reminders when appropriate.

When submitting your lineups, we would strongly prefer if you send them to us via Smogon DM. Submissions by PS pms will NOT be accepted.

Here's how we'd prefer you submit lineups to us.

In Smogon DMs, make a conversation with the host (in the hills) and your co-manager with the title "OMSL Lineup Submissions" and include your lineup in the conversation. Submit the lineup exactly as in the formatting below (Code formatting, and must include the @)

Code:
(Best of 5) SS 2v2 Doubles - @PlayerName
SS Bonus Type - @PlayerName
SS Godly Gift - @PlayerName
SS Inheritance - @PlayerName
SS Inverse - @PlayerName
SS Sketchmons - @PlayerName
Note: Every week's lineup can be submitted in the same conversation, but each week must be in a new message, so you may not edit a prior message in the conversation with your new lineup.
Changes in lineups may happen freely before the deadline, after which substitutes will have to be used. Be sure to notify us of each change.

Round 1 will begin 9/6

Announcement - Inheritance Validator
Inheritance's validator with 2 ability clause is currently not working. While teams may validate with more than 2 of the same ability, note that Inheritance is intended to have 2 ability clause implemented. Please refrain from bringing teams with more than 2 of the same ability. Games that do not follow this will need to be redone.

Managers make sure to communicate this to all of your players!

Announcement - Godly Gift

Godly Gift has banned Marowak-Alola by suspect test! Since the ban took place after the start of Week 3, Marowak-Alola will remain legal for the remainder of Week 3 games.

Players should use the following challenge code when challenging to Week 3 games:
Code:
/challenge [user], gen8godlygift@@@+marowak-alola

Announcement - Sketchmons Validator
Sketchmons currently has No Retreat marked as unrestricted on the server, this is unintentional. This will be fixed within the next day or so, but please refrain from using No Retreat in any Sketchmons games. Games that do not follow this will need to be redone.

Week 3 Announcements:
RE: omicorio vs Links
omicorio refused to play the game at the scheduled time, and no other time could be arranged with Links. Links gets the win, meaning the final score for Magearnas vs Stunkys is 2-4.

RE: PA vs Ax
Ax could not find a time to play the series and the Basculegions were unable to provide a sub due to the 2 sub limit. PA gets the win, meaning the final score for Dubwools vs Basculegions is 4-2.

Week 4 will be posted shortly.

RE: pannuracotta vs Nultiprise
pannuracotta missed the scheduled time and no sub was provided. Nultiprise gets the win.

RE: TGA vs XxSevagxX
TGA failed to respond to scheduling follow ups and missed the scheduled time and no sub was provided. XxSevagxX gets the win. With an astounding 2 games not played from Magearnas this week, the final score of Magearnas vs Slowkings is 2-4.

Week 5 will be posted shortly

Announcement - Sketchmons
:ss/hawlucha::ss/excadrill:
Sketchmons has banned Excadrill! It will not be usable in the Finals round. Sketchmons also banned Hawulcha last week, but I forgot to announce it and it wasn't implemented on PS! for a bit... whoopsie! My apologies, but note that it is not allowed in the Finals round either.

RE: Krytocon vs Vrji
Krytocon did not respond to scheduling attempts and was nowhere to be found during the game time. Vrji gets the win. The final score of Dubwools vs Slowkings is 3-3.

RE: StaZix vs omicorio/DerpyBoi
omicorio refused to play at the scheduled time, and a sub was provided. However, StaZix was not properly notified of this substitution and the substitute, DerpyBoi, made no effort to play the game in the available time slots. StaZix gets the win. The final score of Magearnas vs Basculegions is 3-3.

omicorio has refused to play twice this tour now at the scheduled time without contacting their manager either time. This has been a detriment to the team and hindered the tour, and as a result omicorio will be infracted for demonstrating unsportsmanlike behavior.
