ORAS OU Global Championship is a standard ORAS OU Tournament with a goal to find the best ORAS OU player of the year.

Each round will consist of 2 stages. The first stage each player will be given 2 sets of pairings in which they play a best-of-1 vs their opponent. After the first stage is completed and the host has determined wins, players who win both their matches go through to the next round, while players who lost twice are eliminated. The players who won 1, lost 1, battle it out in a tiebreaker best of 1 in stage 2 to join the two-time winners in the next round or the player wins the tournament in the case of a final.

The prize returns: a $50 (or equivalent) amazon gift card will be given out to the winner of the entire tournament!

Vai Lusa hasn't replied to my post, i will still wait for further reply; TDK and i seems both get up late, so he refuses to play at my night, considering to the nearly 12 hours difference in timezone.

To add to the above, Quagmander gave me two windows; the first at 8:30-10 am my time during the week and 10-10:30 am my time on the weekend. I, on the other hand, gave him a 13 hour window on either weekend, and a 7 hour window today and tomorrow. The times I gave him were legitimately as long as I could play, and by no means are they unreasonable for him. I gave him from 8 am his time to 2 pm his time if you'd like to exclude the more "unreasonable" hours I gave him when I said I could play from 1 am - 2 pm his time.

You would think that if you were to "consider the nearly 12 hour difference in timezone" that someone would be more than willing to either play past midnight or just afternoon in their timezone, right? haha

double switches and I should have no problem playing on the other hand.
dont worry, im not giving quagmander the win nor will i be considering his activity post should it come to it. it has literally been 2 days since the round was posted.

Quagmander, stop trying to activity win your way through this.
The time window i gave TDK, like his saying, seems short EVERYDAY, but i had removed those unreasonable time after calculating the difference in timezone. And of course i could play from 3-7pm my time when he would be sleeping or in class.
