Hey everyone! So, RBY PU has existed for a little bit of time now, and right now we need things to get the meta explored and progressing further. What better to do than a belated kick-off tournament (hence the tournament name, Pioneer). If this goes well, Pioneer could become a recurring RBY PU tournament series.
I know what y'all are here for, so I'll get to the chase. There is a $100 cash payout for Top 4, with it being distributed the following way:
- This tournament will be a 5-Round Swiss with those who go 5-0 or 4-1 moving on to a Single Elimination Bracket
- All players will have the opportunity to play at least 5 matches, even if they lose early on
- Each round shall be given around 1 week to fully complete, with possible extensions granted in rare cases when needed.
- Matches will be played on Smogtours, using the following Challenge Command:
- /challenge gen1nu @@@ -Mr. Mime, -Charizard, -Clefable, -Blastoise, -Poliwhirl, -Kabutops, -Nidoking, -Moltres, -Venomoth, -Golem, -Kingler, -Exeggcute, -Seadra, -Raticate, -Porygon, -Wigglytuff, -Ninetales
- Matches will be Bo3, with the exception of Finals (which will be a Bo5). Ties do not count towards game count.
- Replays of ALL tournament games MUST BE POSTED.
- By signing up for this tournament, you consent to the replays and match statistics being used in YouTube videos for content and commentary to be made.
- Join the RBY Discord, if at all possible.
Credit to Gastlies for making these sample teams. Note that due to the fact that the RBY PU metagame is still very new, over the course of the tournament these teams may prove to be invalidated. Brewing up stuff in the teambuilder is HIGHLY encouraged.
Post "in" below this message to sign-up, and send a DM to my Discord account (pac#8314) if you have any questions or suggested changes to the thread or tournament. Volk, Gastlies, and TehTayTeh will operate as assistant TOs, if needed.
Signups will be open until Sunday, November 13th, 2022 at 8:30 PM (GMT-4).
