my safe word is climate change
Welcome to the second iteration of the Smogon Doubles Tour, a core tournament in the 2018 Doubles Circuit. This tour is an analog of the Smogon Tour but featuring the 3 most recent generations of Doubles OU formats as opposed to OU formats.
Smogon Doubles Tour is a series of Live Tournaments which will be starting on June 1st and will consist of the 3 most recent DOU generations (SM, XY, BW). The Live Tour portion of the tournament will last 9 weeks and everyone will earn points based on their weekly performances. After the Live Tour phase, the Top 16 players in the standings will advance and compete in a single elimination Playoffs to determine a Champion.
These tournaments will take place on the smogtours server. There will be 3 live tournaments of the same generation per week, with the generation rotating between weeks for a total of 9 weeks.
Week 1: SM DOU (6/1, 6/2, 6/3)
Week 2: XY DOU (6/8, 6/9, 6/10)
Week 3: BW DOU (6/15, 6/16, 6/17)
Week 4: SM DOU (6/22, 6/23, 6/24)
Week 5: XY DOU (6/29, 6/30, 7/1)
Week 6: BW DOU (7/6, 7/7, 7/8)
Week 7: SM DOU (7/13, 7/14, 7/15)
Week 8: XY DOU (7/20, 7/21, 7/22)
Week 9: BW DOU (7/27, 7/28, 7/29)
The times that the Live Tours will start are as follows (Note that these are different than the Smogon Tour)
- Friday: 9pm EDT (GMT -4)
- Saturday: 11am EDT (GMT -4)
- Sunday: 2pm EDT (GMT -4)
The Points System that will be used for each live tour is the same as the one that is used for Smogon Tour. The current standings for the Smogon Doubles Tour can be found here, at http://spo.ink/doutour2.
Because this Tournament is a part of the 2018 Doubles Circuit, it will also award Circuit Points. The circuit point payout at the conclusion of the entire Smogon Doubles Tour (including playoffs) is as follows:
1st: 18 CP
2nd: 14 CP
3-4: 10 CP
5-8: 7 CP
9-16: 4 CP
17-32: 2 CP
33-64: 1 CP
For anyone interested in hosting any of the Live tours, feel free to either post about your availability on this thread or by sending a collective PM to MajorBowman, Memoric, Level 51, or talkingtree. Keep in mind that hosts will not be able to play in the same tour that they host, but because one may only enter 2 tours per week there is still some leeway for hosts to still compete in the tour.
Good luck to all players!
