Introduction
The OM Livetour Circuit is a series of single-elimination, best of one live tournaments that will start on Saturday, November 7, 2020. The tiers played will be the main 5 OMs, those being Generation 8 DLC 2 Almost Any Ability, Balanced Hackmons, Camomons, Mix and Mega, and STABmons. These live tournaments will last for 5 weeks, with one tour being run every Saturday and Sunday. In each livetour, players are given the opportunity to earn points that correspond to how far they advanced into the tour. At the end of this 5 week period, the top 8 players will be placed in a single-elimination best of 5 playoffs bracket featuring the five tiers played in each of the weeks.

All tournaments will take place on the Smogtours Server, and competitors must sign up for each individual tour they wish to play in. Competitors will post "in" or an equivalent in this thread following a post by one of the hosts that states signups are open. Signups will open at the following times:
For each Saturday tour, signups will open at 9pm GMT + 0
For each Sunday tour, signups will open at 4pm GMT + 0
Each format will have both a Saturday and a Sunday tour to make it easier for players to attend and play. If a tournament is listed first in its week bracket it will take place on Saturday, while if it is listed second in its week bracket, it will take place on Sunday.

Rules and Scoring
Competitors will be allowed to join all 10 tours.
Tournaments will be capped between 8 and 36 users depending on signup speed, in order to get an even amount of players.
Players past the tournament limit will be "benched" and subbed in in case of a Round 1 no show.
Competitors who are eliminated in the first round will not earn any points for that tournament.
Points gained in a "bye" will not be awarded to the competitor unless they win the following round.
Rounds with no communication between players will result in a coinflip, and the "winner" will not receive any points for that round.
Refer to the Scoring Examples below for the points system used in individual tours.

During the Tour
After the hosts open the signups for that day's livetour, competitors are required to post "in" (or an equivalent) to enter the tournament. Players will then congregate on Smogtours, where the host will post round updates and announce pairings. Players are required to be on a voiced Smogtours name or an otherwise well-known alt to compete. After the best of one match is played, the WINNER of the match PMs the host saying that they won, along with a link to the smogtours replay. The loser of the match should not PM the host to minimize confusion. Scouting and watching other players' matches is NOT banned, and players are allowed to change their team from round to round. If your opponent does not respond to your challenges or is otherwise not available to play your game, please contact the host for a substitution or a round decision.


Mid-Week Metagame Bans
Any ban that takes place during the week will NOT be banned in the weekend's livetours during the main season. Metagames will be locked going into playoffs.

Ghosting or Cheating
Competitors that are convicted of ghosting or otherwise cheating will be stripped of their points and barred from entering any future livetours in this circuit.

Tiebreak
In the event that two or more players have the same amount of points going into the playoffs, there will be a best of 5 tiebreak, with a coinflip deciding who chooses the first format. Loser of each match chooses the format in the following game.

Administrative Decisions

Week 1: Balanced Hackmons
The tournament only had 8 users participate. Because this did not intersect with any of the scoring examples in the OP, here is the scoring used for that tournament. This will be the scoring used for future 8 man tournaments in this circuit.

5-8th place: 0 points
3rd and 4th place: 1 point
2nd place: 3 points
1st place: 4 points

Nov 15 Update:
Scoring tables for all tournaments up to 36 users are now in the OP.

Week 3: STABmons
This tournament had an 9-man in 10-slot tour structure. We decided to use the 12-man scoring system. Quantum Tesseract will be awarded 5 points because he won the tournament, even though he got a round 2 bye. The rest of the scoring for this tournament can be found here:

re: banned users and playoffs
Users will not be able to compete in any livetours while banned from Smogon, however, their points will not be cleared. If a user's ban is active the day the Playoffs start (Monday, December 7) and they are in the top 8 players that qualified for playoffs, they will be skipped over when selecting qualified players, and players will shift up a seed relative to their placement. The 9th user on the leaderboard will be given the 8th seed, and so on and so forth.

We are still looking for backup hosts!
If you are interested in being the backup host for a livetour, please PM me on discord (rr#9863) or message me in the Other Metagames discord for more information. Please note that, for tournament integrity reasons, you can not participate in a livetour that you are hosting.

Additionally, please make sure you fully understand the content of the OP if you plan to participate in the livetours. This will help the tours run smoothly and will improve everyone's experience with the tournament as a whole! The first tour will be run on November 7. Please keep an eye on this thread for more updates!
