Introduction
The Ruins of Alph Standard Tournament (RoAST) is an annual tournament open to all players that seeks to find the best player in all old generation OverUsed tiers. Winners will earn the right to display the RoAST mini-trophy
in their signatures. Once again, the tiers will be Gen 1-6 OU. All players that signup will be entered into two single elimination brackets, each consisting of 3 unique tiers, with each bracket complementing the other for each round. Every round, a unique combination of tiers (not previously featuring in any bracket) will be randomly determined for both brackets. Players must play and win in 2 tiers (best of 3 wins) against their opponent to move onto the next round, a loss resulting in elimination from the relevant bracket.

Example Scenario:

Bracket 1 is generations 1,3,5 and Bracket 2 is generations 2,4,6 for round 1. Bracket 1 is 1,2,6 for round 2.
If a player wins in bracket 1 but loses in bracket 2 for round 1, they will restricted to playing their opponent in generations 1,2,6 for round 2. If they win for round 2, they may have to then play generations 4,5,6 in round 3.

If one player is the only player left in both brackets, they win the tournament, otherwise winners of both brackets battle each other once in all tiers (don't repeat in the case of a tie). If the match ends 3-3, players take it in turns, starting with the winner of the last battle to strike out tiers. Once 3 tiers have been removed, the tiers remaining will be the ones played in a first-to-2 wins tie-break set (tiers repeated in case of a tie).

Consistency across every generation will probably be the key to victory in this tournament.

Bracket 2 looks very strong. I think the tiers favour SoulWind most but all three players are highly skilled and versatile.

Hoping we get replays!

Shouldn't it be the semi finals?
No, because it's the finals of each bracket, which may or may not need a grand final after. In the last two tournaments, the grand final was played before the grand final thread could be started, so it will just be in this thread for consistency.
