Hey everyone and welcome to the second cycle of OU Room Live Tours (2022 edition)!


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 playoffs session and try to win a custom avatar of your choice!

As last cycle, the event will be composed of two phases. The first one will be a 4-week period of room tours during which players will try to gather the maximum number of points to qualify for the playoffs phase. The 16 best players will then be able to participate in the 4-week playoffs phase and compete for the title of winner of the cycle.


The room tours phase

Each week, 3 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-finals) will get 2 points, and fifth to eighth (people losing in quarter-finals) will get 1 point. Note that you can only win points from two out of the three tours each week, so if you reach top eight in the three tours of the week, you'll get the points of your two best performances.


Cycle 2 schedule
(this schedule is subject to small changes)
For this new cycle, the room tours will be hosted each Wednesday at 3 PM (GMT-4), each Saturday at 10 PM (GMT-4) and each Sunday at 10 AM (GMT-4). There will be four weeks of room tours, starting the week of Wednesday September 14th and ending on Sunday October 9th.

The playoffs phase

After 4 weeks of room tours, the 16 players with the most points will qualify for the playoffs phase. The playoffs 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. 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 prize.

The playoffs 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 have to be posted in this thread.


Other information

You will need to have a Smogon account to take part to the playoffs 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.

If 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 playoffs phase. If there's too many ties, we will use one more week to make sure all ties are solved before launching the playoffs phase.


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!

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 4 weeks of competition, the top 16 players in the leaderboard above have qualified for OURLT playoff and will get a chance to win a custom avatar of their choice.

As we have 3 players with the same number of points at rank 15, there will be a tie breaker week. Round 1 will thus begin on Monday 17th of October.


Tiebreakers pairings:

zS vs lou dort
zS vs sufys12
lou dort vs sufys12

The tournament will be a BO3 SS OU, single elimination. The player loosing their 2 tiebreakers BO3 will be out and the 2 other will qualify for Round 1. Please play as early as you can, or even schedule for a time when you will all three be online as in case of a 1-1-1, you will have to play again.
Deadline for Tiebreakers is on Sunday October 16th 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!

Congrats to the 8 players who won their first round. Here are the pairings for round 2:

JustFranco vs Ado

Deadline for Round 1 extension is on Tuesday October 25th at 11:59 PM (GMT-4).

Good luck!
