Welcome to the ninth iteration of the Other Metagames Premier League, the biggest OM Tournament of the year!
- Roster | Schedule | Standings | Replays + Usage Stats | Records -​

Overview

Teams
:wigglytuff: The Wiggly Family - Managed by Dragonillis and Gmansour20
:zeraora: The Zoomer Zeraoras - Managed by a loser and Redflix
:spinda: The Spinda Wheels - Managed by xavgb and Jordy
:alcremie: The Fullmetal Alcremists - Managed by Andyboy and Jrdn
:tyrantrum: The Temper Tyrantrums - Managed by OM and Chazm
:noivern: The Based Boomers - Managed by The Number Man and Lasen
:roselia: The Rozelias - Managed by Catalystic and shiloh
:jolteon: The Five-Star Jolteons - Managed by Ransei and Racool

How this works
There are 8 teams this year. Each team will have have 6 players and at least 2 subs. The players are bought using the 100k credits that managers receive during the auction. Managers and co-managers will be allowed to purchase themselves as players for their team at a fixed price of 20k. The managers must inform the hosts (Kris, Sectonia, Think) of all purchases. This may be done before the auction. Teams can win their matchup every week by winning 4 of the 6 matches that their players have to play.​
The tier lineup this year is as follows:​
  1. SS Almost Any Ability
  2. SS Balanced Hackmons
  3. SS Camomons
  4. SS Mix and Mega
  5. SS NFE
  6. SS STABmons
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 seven weeks. Based on the final standings, the top 4 teams will enter a Playoffs Round to determine the teams appearing in the finals.​

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!​

RE: Auction credits

The hosts have decided to expand the amount of credits this year to 100k per team and the price for purchasing oneself to 20k; this allows for managers purchasing themselves to have a bit more leeway when auctioning.

RE: Trades

Due to recent tournament policy discussions, we have decided to disallow trades this year. Sorry!

RE: Tiebreakers

We have decided to change the tiebreaker system from last year. In the event of a tiebreaker, the lower seeded team will pick the first format, the higher seeded team will pick the second format, and then the hosts will use !pick on PS to decide the third format.

Submitting player lineups

Since everyone now has their players, here's how to submit lineups to be used for OMPL 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 all three hosts (Kris, Sectonia, Think) and your co-manager with the title "OMPL 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:
SS Almost Any Ability - @PlayerName
SS Balanced Hackmons - @PlayerName
SS Camomons - @PlayerName
SS Mix and Mega - @PlayerName
SS NFE - @PlayerName
SS STABmons - @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.

Week 1 will start by Monday, May 31st, so get the lineups to us by Sunday, May 30th GMT -4.

Announcement - Camomons bans + Rusted Sword in Balanced Hackmons
hydreigon 3 types.gif

(that's not all of them but I couldn't find anything that had all 4 so this'll do)

Hydreigon, Latias, Latios, and Slowking-Galar have all been banned from Camomons. However, since this was posted after Week 5 went up, it will not be in effect for this week of OMPL games. You may use either Smogtours to play your games or challenge your opponent with the command /challenge [user], gen8camomons @@@ +Hydreigon, + Latias, +Latios, +Slowking-Galar on the main server if the bans are implemented before your games.

On another piece of news, Rusted Sword (and by extension, Zacian-Crowned) has been banned from Balanced Hackmons. The ban will not be in effect for Week 5 since it was made after the week went up, and if you wish to play with Zacian-C in your OMPL games, you should play on Smogtours.

Announcement - Playoffs Tiebreaker and OMPL Finals Information
spinda.jpg
tyrantrums.jpg

The Spinda Wheels and the Temper Tyrantrums have found themselves in a tiebreaker! This tiebreaker will determine who will face the Five Star Jolteons in the finals! As per our tiebreaker policy, we have received the metagames selected by the managers for the tiebreaker, along with our randomly determined third metagame.
The metagames that were selected are as follows:

SS NFE (as chosen by the Temper Tyrantrums)
SS Mix and Mega (as chosen by the Spinda Wheels)
SS STABmons (as chosen by RNG)

The Tiebreaker Round will begin today, and last 3 days - Finals will be posted afterward or earlier if the round finishes earlier than the deadline. The Tiebreaker round will be locked to the same state as the semifinals, so anything that occurs during tiebreakers will NOT affect it. Other than that, enjoy the rest of the tour!
