Hey everyone and welcome to a new edition of OU Room Live Tours!


OU Room Live Tours is an event organized by the OU PS! room where you can participate in Gen8 OU Room Tournaments, earning points to qualify for a playoff session and try to win a custom avatar!

The year will be divided into three cycles, and each cycle winner will receive the year custom avatar as a reward. A cycle will be composed of two phases. The first one is a 9-week period of room tours when players will try to gather the maximum number of points to qualify for the second phase. The 16 best players will then be able to participate in the 4-week playoff phase and compete for the title of winner of the cycle.

Cycle 1 will start on the first week of February and will last for 3 months. There will then be a one-month break between the different cycles meaning cycle 2 will start in June and cycle 3 will start in October.


The reward

A custom avatar on Pokemon Showdown! featuring one of the main Gen8 OU Pokemon will be made for this edition of OU Room Live Tours and will be awarded to all three cycle winners. We made a poll in the room and let it run for a few day, here is the result:

The Pokemon featured on this year avatar will thus be Weavile. Here is the avatar (a big thank to Clementine and Brumirage!):

Additionally, a roomprizewinner rank in the OU room will be awarded to the finalist and the winner of the playoff phase for one month.


The room tours phase

Each week, 2 Gen8 OU room tours will be organized in the Pokemon Showdown! OU room: https://play.pokemonshowdown.com/overused. These tours will follow a predefined schedule given below. Only the tours scheduled here will count for this event and the leaderboard will be held here (it is not the leaderboard shown in the room). Scouting will be allowed during these room tours. Note that in the case where a game exceeds 200 turns, staff members will be able to either dq a player if there’s a clear winner or to randpick the winner to avoid delaying the whole tour.

The way points are awarded is as follow: winning a room tour will give you 5 points, second place will give 3 points, third and fourth place (people losing in semi-final) will get 2 points, and fifth to eighth (people losing in quarter-final) will get 1 point. Note that you can only win points from one tour each week, so if you reach top eight in the two tours of the week, you'll get the points of your best performance.


Cycle 1 schedule
(this schedule is subject to small changes)
For cycle 1, the room tours will be hosted each Wednesday at 3 PM (GMT-4) and each Saturday at 9 PM (GMT-4). The first tour of cycle 1 will thus be organized on Wednesday, February 2nd.

You can find just below a table with the times for the main timezones. We know some timezones are not well covered, and they will get better timeslots during the next cycles. We will also take the most feedback we can during cycle 1 to improve the schedule for the two other cycles.

The playoff phase

After 9 weeks of room tours, the 16 players with the most points will qualify for the playoff phase. The playoff phase will consist of four rounds (each round will last for one week) where people will get paired up with each other and will play in Gen8 OU BO3. For the first round, each player will be seeded depending on their points (the player with the greatest number of points will be seed 1 and so on…) and the highest seeded players will face the lowest ones (seed 1 face seed 16, seed 2 face seed 15…). The 8 winning players will thus move to round 2 and will be paired up randomly. The 4 players winning their round 2 BO3 will move to round 3 and the 2 players winning in round 3 will move to the final round and play in a Gen8 OU BO5 to win the cycle and the custom avatar.

The playoff will be hosted on this thread. At the end of the first phase, I’ll make a new post pinging the qualified players and giving them their pairings. They will then have a week to schedule and play their BO3 with their opponent (when you have a clear schedule, give it in advance to a staff member). The games will have to be linked in the Pokemon Showdown! OU room, and the replays will be added here by the OU room staff (keep them and send them to a room staff member).


Important information

You will need to have a Smogon account to take part to the playoff phase, and we will ask you your Smogon account when you earn points for the first time in a room tour. If you don’t have one, you can still create one during the cycle, as there will be no restriction in term of date of creation of your account or number of messages.


Other information

In case there is a tie in the leaderboard, players with the same number of points will be ranked according to the numbers of first places in a tour they have. If there’s still a tie with an impact on who qualify to the playoff, an additional BO3 (or several BO3 in case there’s more than two people) will be played at the beginning of the playoff phase. If there's too many ties, we will use one more week to make sure all ties are solved before launching the playoff phase.

The ruling stated here can be reviewed and change between cycles. We will probably adapt a bit the rules, schedule… if we feel it can be improved for cycle 2 and 3.


I hope you will enjoy this event! If you have any question, feel free to contact me on Smogon, PS! or Discord (doom_desire#4292) or to reach out to any other OU room staff.

Many thanks to all the OU room staffs who helped organizing this event and who will be hosting the different tours, thanks to Ox the Fox for the original idea of OURLT and thanks to Baloor for giving us the idea to revive this event!

Hey there! The room tours phase is over and it's now time to move on to the playoff phase. As a reminder, players could take part to room tours hosted each week in the OU room on PS! to earn points on our leaderboard. After 9 weeks of competition, the top 16 players in the leaderboard above have qualified for OURLT playoff and will get a chance to win our custom avatar of the year (see the post just above).

The playoff phase will start with a seeded first round, meaning that players who qualified will receive a seed equal to their ranking and the first seed player will be paired up with the 16th one... In case of a tie, the seed has been chosen randomly for the players with the exact same ranking (see the spoiler tag below).

Here are thus the pairing for the first round of playoff:

SpookyZ vs AlIoutdragadarts
clean vs ronaldo o fenomeno
Amoonguss vs Weaselfie
Yelodash vs Zaza
swordstrike vs Leavers
ChaosDragon95 vs Xenqt (AW)
Ewin vs I like pink mons (AW)
Hervalt vs MS3D


The tournament will be a BO3 SS OU, single elimination (if you lose your BO3, you're out of playoff).
Deadline for Round 1 is on Sunday April 17th at 11:59 PM (GMT-4).


Each player will have to contact their opponent (preferably on Smogon), schedule for a precise date and communicate this schedule (give the date with a GMT) with the OU room staff (you can contact either me here or on discord: doom_desire#0622 or pastagirl, discord: pastagirl♡#4010). The games will have to be linked in the OU room of PS! (https://play.pokemonshowdown.com/overused). When you will be playing, link the game in the room saying it's for OURLT and ping a room staff (if there's one available to /wall it). If you win, link your replays in this thread to confirm your victory (don't forget to save replays).

If you have any question or if you need to ask for an activity win (don't ask before like Wednesday/Thursday though), contact either me or pastagirl.

All the classic Smogon tournament rules apply there, see this post for more details: https://www.smogon.com/forums/threads/tournament-rules-and-general-guidelines.3642760/

This thread will be unlocked for playoff, feel free to cheer up for your favorite player or to make predictions, but please stay respectful and avoid flooding the thread with multiple replies. Good luck to everyone!

Hey there, congrats to the 8 players who won the first round. Here are the pairings for round 2 (pairings are random now):

MS3D  vs  SpookyZ
Ewin
 vs  Amoonguss
clean  vs  Xenqt

The tournament is still a BO3 SS OU, single elimination (if you lose your BO3, you're out of playoff).
Deadline for Round 2 is on Sunday April 24th at 11:59 PM (GMT-4).


Here again, you'll have to make a proper schedule with your opponent, and please communicate your schedule (with a precise date if possible and with a GMT) with me or pastagirl. The games will have to be linked in the OU room of PS! (https://play.pokemonshowdown.com/overused). When you will be playing, link the game in the room saying it's for OURLT and ping a room staff (if there's one available to /wall it).

Good luck!

Hey, congrats to our two finalists. The final pairing is:

SpookyZ vs Leavers

Reminder that the final is a BO5 SS OU and deadline is Sunday May 8th at 11:59 PM (GMT-4).

You know the drill, communicate your schedule with me or pastagirl. Good luck to both of you!

Oh and btw, we were allowed to award two different custom avatars a year since today. Thus, the winner will likely be able to chose a custom avatar of their choice (in case they don't want the Weavile one which was the initial reward). This would also mean that we would be reducing the number of cycles to 2 a year. I will confirm this information latter on, but I rather let you know before the games.

Congratulations to SpookyZ on winning the first cycle of OURLT for this year, and thank you all for participating, hope this was a fun event. We will be collecting feedback in the room before launching the next cycle. We will likely be reducing the number of cycles for this year from 3 to 2 du to a lack of hosts and to avoid having a cycle running during gen 9 release. The reward and the dates for the second cycle are still under discussion, more information about this will be communicated soon. In the meantime, feel free to pm me if you have suggestions about things that could be improved.
