The First Random Battles Circuit

Hosted by frostyicelad, Irpachuza, and Rage

Welcome everyone to the first iteration of the Rands Slam! A tournament circuit organised by the Random Battles room on PS! with the objective of covering the most relevant and competitive Randomised Formats that the sim has to offer. Throughout the year, the players will compete on 5 different Single Elimination Open tournaments with the objective of getting points and standing on top of the leaderboard as the top 32 to qualify to the first ever Rands Slam Playoffs.

While the Slam as a whole will be coordinated by me and other Random Battles room ROs, each individual Open will be hosted by different members of the Random Battles room Auth. The hosts will be in charge of all administrative decisions regarding the tour. Although all Opens will follow the basic guidelines for tournaments on Smogon, they may differ between each other due to their different nature and structure, so remember to read each OP carefully when signing up!
