Raging Bull Yolo!

Tournament Rules:
  • General tournament rules and regulations can be found here.
  • Smogon Classic rules can be read here
  • Standard RBY OU
  • Best of three, single elimination
  • Battles should take place on Pokemon Showdown!
  • Do not make baseless activity posts -- get in contact with your opponent and report missed times / scheduling issues only
This is just a small snippet of the full rules, which one can find here!


About playing on alts: It is entirely allowed to play on an alt other than your own main forum name, though if your opponent wishes to confirm your identity, you must log on to your main alt to show them you are who you claim to be. This is to prevent people from pretending to be who they're not.

About playing on different servers: Tournament matches must be played on the Smogtours server. The Main PS! server is also acceptable if both parties agree to that. Other servers are not sanctioned by the TD team and playing in them might result in your game not counting. Protect yourself from that by playing in Smogtours, where we also have the power to recreate games that end due to DC's.


On scouting opponents: Going through your opponents replays of tournament and ladder games is entirely allowed, as long as a game is public there is nothing preventing you from watching it. An exception to this is abusing powers granted to you by being staff on Smogon or PS! to gain access to information a normal user wouldn't have access to, which is strictly forbidden.

On leaking teams: Divulging private information about someone's planned team to their opponent is never allowed, and will be heavily sanctioned. Requesting that such information be divulged is also grounds for punishment. Keep your scouting to publicly available information and you'll be fine.

Timer Clause / Disconnections

On the Timer: The timer must stay on throughout the whole battle..

On Timeout losses: A player that loses by having all his time run out loses the game. This is only not the case if the player that received the timeout loss can be verified to have suffered a True Disconnection. Rematches are only allowed if there was a True Disconnection.

On True Disconnection: The TD team has a secret threshold of seconds that your timer must be at or above, from the moment you disconnect, for a timeout loss to be considered a True disconnection. If your game is determined to be a true disconnection if you played on Smogtours and contacted a TD before the room expired your game will be recreated up to the point the disconnect happened. It is the responsibility of the player that disconnected to get a TD into the room before it expires.

Battle Clauses:
  • Evasion Clause
  • OHKO Clause
  • Sleep Clause
  • Species Clause
  • Timed Battle
  • Freeze Clause
  • Dig/Fly Glitch Prevention Clause

I made a mistake and missed the winpost of Raiza so initially coinflipped the series and Mysterious M was picked as the winner. I fixed that now. Thanks to Mysterious M for telling me. DeoxyX tagging you again in case you already saw the pairings before I could fix them.


formerly HKT
I'd like to start this post by saying that, in a regular situation I would have PM'd Conflict to ask him if he agreed with me asking for an extention, and that I would have ask for one only if he had agreed.

Now to what happend, on Friday night our time Conflict VM'd me to schedule for the round 2 of this cup, and I didn't saw this VM. I checked the round 2 of this round to see how our pairing was decided and saw it was neither of a coin flip or an activity win. Then I discovered this:

As I said, I missed his VM, so I NEVER answered to it. So I'd like to know how can I give the win to someone I've never talked to? I know he might have got an activity win, but since his VM was that late, it wasn't a sure thing. And that fake claim of a win being given is a way to make sure he's granted the win.

So I'm not asking for anything, I know I'm at fault too for not scheduling properly. This post was just made to highlight what really happend, since it's even hard to put a word on that kind of behavior.

Conflict, please provide me evidence for your claim that HKT gave you the win.
Edit: I spoke with him and he told me that he thought a "take the win"-message he received by someone else was for round 2 of the RBY Cup. I doubt that there was malicious intent as 1. I would have given him an activity win anyways and 2. him lying wouldn't really give him an advantage as he admits to having confused something which means that the message he posted can just be retrospectively ignored.
So with that, Conflict wins by activity instead of being given the win.
