On Sportsmanship
Note the sportsmanship infraction may be used liberally this SPL, and any unsportsmanlike conduct on the forums, in discord, or in opposing SPL team servers (I won't infract for you being a dick in your own SPL team server unless the situation is so extreme I feel I absolutely have to make an exception (consider basically any masterclass interaction ever)), will be grounds for an infraction. We encourage you to play semi-aggressively, but don't be a Masterclass.

On Scheduling Matches
I'm sure plenty of you have come across activity drama while scheduling matches. I'm here to reduce the arbitrary element associated with some of these decisions. It is entirely your decision to adhere to these STRONG RECOMMENDATIONS, but note that if you choose not to, I'll most likely ignore any pleading from your end.

YOU MUST ACTIVATE YOUR VM WALL IF YOU WISH TO PLAY IN THIS TOURNAMENT. THIS IS HOW ALL OFFICIAL SCHEDULING WILL BE HANDLED.

Once that week's thread is posted, you have up to 48 hours to contact your opponent ON HIS VM WALL and mention your timezone and exactly what dates, what time ranges you are available, and where you will battle. Note that the default accepted sim and server is the official server on Showdown/Smogon Tournament Server. You must provide at least 3 different time ranges at least 48 hours from the timestamp of your message, with at least 2 that are 24-hours apart from each other. The minimum and maximum length for 1 time range is 30 minutes, and the minimum difference between the 3 required time ranges is 3 hours. If you give 3 time ranges that stick with this policy, you can give any additional time ranges at any time you please.

NOTE THAT THIS SCENARIO INVOLVES RESPONSE DYNAMICS; THERE IS SOMEONE WHO WILL CONTACT FIRST AND SOMEONE WHO RESPOND...THESE REQUIREMENTS ARE NOT FOR BOTH OF YOU TO ASSUME TO YOU CAN BE FIRST CONTACTS...WHOEVER CONTACTS FIRST IS THE FIRST, AND THE OTHER DEFAULTS TO THE RESPONDER. THIS SHOULD BE OBVIOUS BUT SOME OF YOU ARE DUMB.

Once your opponent has contacted you, you now have up until 72 hours after the week's thread has been posted (NOT after your opponent's message) to respond with times that are good for you. What this means is that if both of you spend the maximum time contacting and responding, you should have back and forth collaboration at a maximum of 72 hours after the round has been posted, with both parties given an additional 24 hours to prepare for the battle should it be scheduled as soon as required. If none of the opponent's proposed time ranges are good for you, you must respond with alternative time ranges.

The first opponent now has X hours to prepare for the battle (if the second opponent agreed to some time) or 24 hours to contact a TD if, for whatever reason, this second set of time ranges does not suit the first opponent. Note this should be an absolute last measure.

Once a time is agreed upon, please make a message on your opponent's VM wall between 10 minutes and 1 second before the agreed upon time and say you are ready to battle and then get to agreed upon location (regardless of whether or not your opponent sends you a response VM). Please protect yourself by making this message, as it makes decisions much easier. You will be required to wait for your opponent for the duration of the time range.

If neither of you contact each other before 48 hours after the thread has been posted, you're both opening yourself up to a potential no contest or substitution. If I look at the situation, I might just determine I'm going to no contest, or whatever based on however I'm feeling at that moment. Don't leave yourself and your team vulnerable to this.

Just because at anytime one of the responders does not respond within the given range does not give you automatic activity win credentials. If they don't contact at all on your VM wall up until 48 hours before the end of the round (note, I'm not going to take discord or sim messages as evidence due to how easily they can be doctored...so if you want to protect yourself, stick to the VM messages), then you obviously have activity win justification. You WILL contact your opponent in a timely manner. However, if they do contact you at all after the suggested response time and before 48 hours before the end of the round, you are required to respond before 24 hours before the end of the round with 2 1-hour time ranges at least 1 hour apart before the end of the round. The opponent, since he did not stick to the proposed response schedule, WILL BE REQUIRED TO PLAY AT ONE OF YOUR NEWLY SUGGESTED TIMES, so you have the advantage here. This obviously puts a bit of an emphasis on the last 48 hours of each round (as is standard operating procedure for most of our official team tournaments anyway), so I will try my best to keep the last 48 hours of the round as close to the majority of the weekend for as much of the world as I can.

If you follow all of these guidelines, you will a.) most likely get your match done with minimal issue or b.) protect yourself and your team from an undue no contest or activity decision. Yes, I hate activity decisions in official tournaments. Yes, I will do my best to prevent activity decisions in the playoffs (the qualifying round is fair game however and I will have no problem issuing an activity call here), but don't push your luck.

Here is an example of how following this would work:

Week 1 thread is posted June 7, 2013 at 12:00 AM. Its deadline is June 14, 2013 at 11:59PM. User A and User B are matched up. User A contacts User B on his VM wall on June 7, at 9:00 PM (47 hours after the thread was posted, so ok), and gives 4 time ranges: June 10, from 7:00-7:30 PM (22 hours after the timestamp of his message, which is only ok so long as at minimum 3 of the other proposed time ranges adhere to the requirements), June 11, from 9:00-9:30 PM (48 hours after the timestamp of his message, which is ok), June 12, from 6:00-6:30 PM (69 hours after timestamp of his message, so ok, but only 21 hours after the earliest time range that is 48 hours after the timestamp), and June 12, from 9:00-9:30 PM (72 hours after the timestamp, so ok, and 24 hours after a legal time range and 3 hours after another legal time range). The June 11 and both June 12 time ranges satisfy the requirements, so User A can propose his first June 10 time range as well. User B responds on June 10, at 8:00 PM (23 hours after User A contacted him, so ok), and picks June 11, at 9:00 PM to battle, which is ok because it is 24 hours after his own response.

You'll note I made most of my response ranges multiples of 24 hours, but also included 24 hours. This means I expect you to be able to check Smogon at least once a day. If that is not feasible, you put yourself at risk.

On Disconnecting and timing out drama
Ah, the big beefcake. I'm going to go ahead and put this out there: we reserve the right to judge any individual match on a case by case basis, regardless of assumed precedence set. If you don't like that, you are welcome to not play. Be aware of this.

That said, here is the main way we will probably handle DCs / timing out:

To handle all DC cases...you're gonna submit your teams before the match. Create a thread in the Team Submissions Forum with an import of your team, preferably using https://cryptobin.co/. You don't have to submit, but if you do, you protect yourself from the opponent taking a win. If you do DC (and you can't rejoin the battle) and you haven't submitted your team, your opponent will have the right to take the win. Yes, I'll most likely make a judgment call if he is on his last turn with 1 Pokemon at 5% and paralyzed and with you at 6 100% health Pokemon, because the only way to lose this is to misclick multiple times. However, if you're at 6 100% Pokemon and your opponent is at last Pokemon 10% needing to crit flinch you 6 - 12 times for the win, I'll give him the win if you DC and haven't submitted your team.

I know people like Philip7086 will beg me "to use common sense for a judgment call" for all cases and I would normally agree, but I am giving you all a 100% out by allowing you to submit your team. Basically, submit your team, and protect yourself and your team from any and all DCs. It's a simple procedure that removes almost all subjectivity from a decision regarding a DC. Unlike with the scheduling restrictions, all you have to do is submit the team your are using at anytime before the match takes place, and you'll have 100% protected yourself. Read this rule and understand this now before you join the tournament. Since I'm stating this now, I'm basically going to ignore you if you DC, didn't submit a team, and "had a guaranteed win." Expect it. Also note that I'm going to let the PLAYER (not the team), decide whether he is going to take the win or go another route (replay same moves, replay different teams, etc.).

To further ensure no funny business, if, in the case of a DC replay, there is any concern from either party about funny business, both parties have the right to request a screenshot of the current Pokemon's stats in battle. This is irrelevant for Showdown as you can simply rejoin a battle there, but PO allows you to see the currently out Pokemon's stats if you scroll over it with your mouse. Just hit PrntScrn (windows) while scrolling over it if requested by your opponent, preferably with proof that it is a screenshot of that actual battle (consider including the opponent's request in the battle screen in the screenshot).

Regarding time outs, they are a bit more complex, specifically because some timeouts are due to DCs. The best we can do for this scenario is say that there is some number between 1 minute and 2 minutes (which we will not publicize) that we will set as a limit for timing out, and if you timeout with more than that limit time remaining, we'll assume it is a DC, whereas the opposite is a true timeout. A true timeout defaults to a loss, while the DC timeout is prone to the DC rules (did you submit or not).

~ Aldaron


This should be a smooth ride if everyone follows the instructions above. (schedule via VM, submit teams, don't start drama for no reason)

SM OU: FlamingVictini vs bro fist - john had a tough week this week while FV has probably looked the best out of every single person in the whole tour (ou at least). rly good game tho
SM OU: Leftiez vs Eo Ut Mortus - this is like a bullfighting match, leftiez being the wild bull and eo being the suave dude with the sword. another awesome 1. slightly leaning towards eo tho
ORAS OU: Mounts vs xray

SM OU: ABR vs Blackoblivion - though BO has looked good all tour (and beat me) and abr nearly choked vs lednah, he's still one of the best out there and hard to predict against
SM OU: Trosko vs Sabella - sab has kind of just turned into a rain team 1 trick and has not looked good generally. trosko hot heatranman
ORAS OU: Updated Kanto vs Znain - funny how pre-spl / week 1 or 2, what most wouldve probably considered a low quality oras MU is one of my favorites/best in the tour. kanto is too hot to go against though

SM OU: Cdumas vs p2 - good mu, kinda like the wild bull vs bullfighter example i used for eo v leftiez
SM OU: Empo vs Eternal Spirit - ES has only dropped a game out of his last 10 and empo had a rough week last week, though this will be a really fun watch
ORAS OU: Destiny Device vs Nintendi - rly glad DD is getting his chance cuz hes awesome, but a tough opponent for your first game to be vs :(

SM OU: TDK vs CrashinBoomBang - cbb has looked better all tour, if he brings a good team (like last week) should be 1sided
SM OU: Gondra vs aim - idk and my eyes r starting to hurt from looking at my screen all day
ORAS OU: R!cardo vs Poek

SM OU: TDK (50) vs (50) CrashinBoomBang - Great match, rooting for a tie. I think both players will bring cool teams
SM OU: Gondra vs aim - aim can play, build and fully understands every pokemon game tier, from gen 1 rotation battles to gen 8 VGC, Gondra will still win though because raiders.
SM UU: Pak vs HT - Pak got double para otherwise perfect record? Maybe
SM RU: Gingy vs Nat - Now that he's in his main tier his results will improve
SM NU: Zukushiku vs ict - i like this guy, no bias though
SM DOU: Kaori vs Biosci
ORAS OU: R!cardo vs Poek
BW OU: BKC (100) vs (0) Arii Stella - Absolutely 0 chance not even with all 6 mons permanently frozen

Week 6

USUM
i rllyyyy like the fact tht cdumas is a good sport and lets me diddle him in the wind every week but cmon U CNNOT HAVE THE NAME CDUMBASS N PLAY LIKE A DUABSS EBERY WEEK BRO
cdumas might as well change his name to Cdabar because he is the literal status quo and by that i mean he is DECIDEDLY avg and will do absolutely NOTHING surprising in a game that u wouldnt predict or wouldnt expect. lets not consider the fact that cdumas brings the teams that r meta but not good meta, like if someone ws trying to make a knock off of what good meta mons assembled into a team would look like, and just look at his plays first (btw his teams r bahhhhhd) If u watch blunders video he recorded live of this game u can hear the exact moment i bring up the fact that lant can easily eaaaasily eq whihc is what cd needed to do to get momentum after having had ZERO all game, but i quickly reconsider cuz its cbb and he WILL punish and its also cdumbass and he WILL bite the gag and assume fetal position. game was lost on that turn, im not syaing that play wasnt hard to make, it is, but w that already shit mu and already shit opening u RLLY NEED TO NOT BE UNSHIT TO NOT UNLOSE, yet the only undoing here by cdumbass is not his dilemma, but cbb's trousers.
dicks in mouth: :swole::swole: not so much a choke as a slow, gradual death.
this has got to be the worst played won game iv seen in sm in a hot minute. tho i commend snou for being very eccentric style aka using diverse and unique teams (also improving from years ago where there will always be 2-3 unmons on the team down to now 1 or even none), this time it was the dreaded stall, however a solid rendition of it. with this type of matchup, one would think that anyone w half a dick can swing it and somehow hit the throat area of their opponent, but no, snou said this dick aint goin nowhere but up my own ass. after literally having been played ALL GAME LITERALLY with ZERO advantage taken and i do mean ALL like first of the 50 turns, snou dodges a hjk to secure it. howeveer, the problem isnt the dodge, cuz it was about a 5050 chance of hitting all those kicks, the problem is how it got to that point. literally a play at ANY point of the game wouldv salvaged the situation, but it seems that ppl who use stall seem to think it sohld always pilot itself to a win and resort to button clicking. Maybe theyv regressed to their very internal, true selves, non-playmaking bitchass shortcut takers who also eat pussy before another man fucks it. wait no, after. anyhow, this game was truly atrocious, but that just also reflects very well on empo's part for playing an exceptional game and putting himself in prime position to win.
dicks in ass: :swole::swole::swole::swole:
wouldnt say any particular choke on a specific turn, but the amalgamation of every play in the first 50 turns piles up to an inverse choke where u open the game w a dick in ur voicebox and slowly unchoke urself w luck
i dont agree w sabellas plasy this game because seeing as zone is likely scarf, te kart was gonna be useless, and gear + dos p much wall everything since the only thing touching dos was weavile. i would have gone to the other steel type to force uturn, then the next play could either be sacking kart into zone to get rox or switching out on uturn etc etc. anyhow, the aq tail miss rlly sucked but who doesnt run waterfall since tail gives no significant 2kos and flinch is goat. anyways, this game is very str8forward and advantages were never too big, until tail miss rlly fuckd sab up (OH ACTUALLY UTURNING W PELIPPER WAS RETARDED IF UR SPEX THT WAS A FREEBIE LMAOOO) ok nvm i think sab played rlly poorly and the miss undermined his chances even more. was a good mu but those 2 factors made the endgame unwinnble, esp since, as hard as it is to say, leties actually outplayed for once (tho the miss gave him all the momentum to do so). here once again we see the usual problem of a player, once again, after losing momentum to something unexpected (here hax), tilts and doesnt make up for it, securing the loss (almost guaranteed unless u pp stall all icicles and they miss. ye timeout is unfort but what can u do when instead of focusing on playing u have to be on lookout duty for general ubak' ek m'sookadeek.
dicks choked: :swole::swole::swole: tilts after unfort, this happens too often to the yout
yea fv brought a team 6-0d by kart but what are the odds that mon just happens to be on a team in SM amirite. too bad the team is rlly good vs passive, which, bo's team was even MORESO than fv's (ok fvs teams still always follow the same pattern fwg 2-3 fats, revenge, a setup, utility WHICH I EBEN FUCKIN CALLED OUT DAMN PPL ADAPT)
hard to break w bo's team so the game was tougher for bo to win despite him making a few good plays (both played well, but bo had to play well more turns imo cuz tran the only breaker) but the luck sealed it. however there was still a good chance for bo if the luck didnt happen id say at least 5-5 (but kart had defog likely and then there were gonna be speed ties n shit so its rlly hard to quantify this advantage comparison)
yea very unfort, game was MUCH much closer than it was and is overall a good game well played on btoh sides
Dicks choked: :pikuh: let down by lack of throwing (tho bo couldv played safer like tang turn, but i understand not wanting rocks or at least punishing lant for getting them since tran is the wincon)
ooooooooo this shit is a juicy one. its not even that shake played taht bad its just that his dogshit team was so fucking awful and he didnt even get up tspikes like how do u use a fat zyg team wo getting tspieks (also tspikes fuckd the other team). the moment shake chose to go into torn then KNOCK for some ungodly reason he forfeited all momentum alongside his manhood because boy he got his ass flipped out like a mfin pyukumuku. shake is actualyl so fucking trash at understanding gameplans and win cons and is the EPITOME of fucking braindead buttonclicker. this game wasnt even unwinnable too, and i guess the idea of pivoting around resists is foreign to shake because for every turn that a mon isnt droppin dead on either side of the field he adds another 13 yr old anime girl to his meatbeat folder. jesus fuck watching shake play actually makes me question how someone so absolutely disgustingly utterly trash has accomploshed such feats and question fundamentally why we are all even trying in this game which is a glorified version of rock paper scissors X dice rolling. also raiders management, bravo, bravo, i wouldnt trust shake to start if he was


this button.
13 yr old anime girls on shakes mind during the game :swole::swole::swole::swole::swole:
tbf surprised that ANYTHING actually goes on in there
zomgs sable set has to be the WOAT, someone shoulda brought a spex trick clown and 6-0d while gondras more stadnard stall gets fucked by strong boltbeam + offensive hazarder say, kyub koko gren/tran type shit and sable better not get chipped ever, cuz gren + cham is a simple combo thatll eat. anyhow enuf analyzing the teams its not like they brought stall to not bank on mu anyways, and boy did these 2 banks collide cuz mfs surely lost interest within the first 5 million turns *badum tsk* yea not much to day, tho they technically can force the other to waste pp it was under the premise that they needed to actaully play the game, not be dickless cucks clicking buttons lmao eat ass both. not only did both players waste a lotta time, they themselves have proven to be wastes of time
chodes lickd: :swole::swole::swole::swole::swole: both of yall suck a rashy dick

https://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/smogtours-gen7ou-352273
ok so they played ina replay which was surprisingly a decent and entertaining game, and by that i mean gondra took fat chodes and stuffed them down his face. he was unable to identify his win con, which was SET UP UR FUCKING HAZARDS, w a poisoned tornt and tspikes available to be set at ANY POINT OF THE GAME alongside fuckign FIRIUM TRAN WHIHC KILLED THE DEFIGGEER, HE FUCKING ALLOWED DEFOG TO GO UP AND NONE OF HIS HAZARDS TO BE LAID LIKE HOLY SHIT IS SM THIS HARD TO PLAY ITS JUST LIKE ANY GEN CLICK HAZARDS FUCK
zomg played off how shit gondra played tho and had a few noteworthy plays here n there, but this game isnt so much won by zomg as it is seismic tossed into the bin by gondra's absolute dogshit plays
chodes swallowed: :swole::swole::swole::swole::swole:
Well u know how i alwasy complain about skilless fat, but this game is exactly the reason why niggas also are scared to run offense. sometimes it just crumbles completely. i dont even dislike lednah's team, i also love the fact that he brought some different shit when everyone uses balanced or fat, tho somethin like a koko offense w decent removal 8=8. HOWEVER PLOT TWIST despite abr having the goatiest mu of all time while having diancie in the best possible type of team to be up against (not-that-fast-offense), he STILL gave us quite the nail biter. im not gonna elaborate too much on the endgame, ill just let this do the talking
https://strawpoll.com/z3f8ybyd
sets DEEMED: :swole::swole::swole::swole::swole: oh boy abr sure deemed quite a few sets to be "playable with" :psysly:
yea well this was just a uh idk its very similar to another game or maybe not similar in structure but like in how its set up, axel was like bo in the sense taht he only p much has tran to do immediate damage and fuck shit around. so lets zoom right into turn 8, where axel got up terrain for himself (tho he just HAPPENED to have got it up since he needed to send in bulu, i HIGHLY doubt he set up terrain in anticipation of the play im about to point out because not only did he not make said play, he frankly isnt good enuf to have if he missed such an obvious opening), and baited trosk into spreading open his own cheeks by giving tran the boost. at this point if u are ANY decent at the game you might be wondering, oh shit who dyin amirite? though toxic is a significant concern i still think maybe trosk needed to go to chans since it didnt do much, while a dead scor certainly means trosk will be much too easily put in a losing position. AT THIS POINT u might be thinking, oh but gettin rocks on the chans is fine right? NO U CAN GET IT NEXT TURN FOR FREE ANYWAYS????? AND WTF DONT TELL ME TROSK PREDICTED ROX OR TOXIC>>>>????? MAG WAS GON DO 75 AND ROOST DOESNT HEAL ENUF EQ DOE HALF SO WTF???? HE THREW RIFHT THERE WHAT THE ACTUAL DICK..... ok i actually stopped watching after that turn cuz ik that given however good of opportunities matters not to axel, because unlike Axel from kingdom hearts Axel aint read nobody (cuz axels hair is red gettit,, ok this was a lil forced)
yea fukc the rest of the game lmao this proves u can throat chodes 8 turns in at 6-6
axels 10ded to: :swole::swole::swole::swole::swole: yung keyblade stroker
ah this game. tho p2 rlly fucked up letting chans die, i dont totally ahte it cuz hhe mightv been fearing idk sd or some shit and chans didnt look particularly actaully nah idk who doesnt go pex n shit cuz sd tpunch is an unset and pex was gonna live anything and pivor/scout. understandibly tho, since pex is not fully phys def, but still,,,, the midground play. cant fault anyone for yellow magic tho. abyhow the game played out quite uneventfully until the zyg crit, and after a bit of discussion i learned that ok the grassy doesnt effect thousand, however dos wouldv lived with high 20% hp + lefties + grassy letting it go back to around half, while getting off a defog. zapds being at that high meant that torn wasnt sweeping, and rox being gone stopped any of bulus concerns switching into zygarde. tho not 100% over it was like 9-1 in favor of john since gren at least 2kod everything, while the only countermeasure is a torn confusion possible sweep but even then p2 had to play around gren sweeping him.
choking hazard: :pikuh:
no choke just unfortunate luck. i think p2 shouldv played early game better
yo i swear this es team is taht cbb patented oras offense where the gren slot is swapped out for a myriad heatah replacements ranging from clamperl, pikachu, to uhh othershit. anywys es finally switches up and goes on the offensive this week, lets see how it works. eos team is actaully surprisingly solid, but that shit looks 6-0d like fuck by any stally team w an unaware mon. the problem with es' offense and why it doesnt work in this gen is bulky and less than absurdly powerful mons (see: lednahs team v abr) dont work, u gotta go balls out or u lose to pivots + faster offensive mons which is what eo has, a simply way more fitting style for this meta. this loss was very foreseeable since turn 1 and eo did prepare for the generally slower wallbreaky style of es well. this might be the most autopilot str8fordward game this week in sm, idk what that shit ass team es brought beat during testing that compelled him to think that it was bringworthy
dicks in es' teambuilder(both the person and the application): :swole::swole::swole::swole::swole:
simply awful, awful. leave taht shit in oras and in heatah lives.


this concludes my USUM review, oras and bw coming up soon

ORAS OU: Updated Kanto vs Znain - p sure Znain will bounce back from his 2 losses and get a win here :D

ORAS OU: Destiny Device vs Nintendi - really interesting to see DD in ORAS again. Unfortunately this isn't 2015 though and i think Nintendi is just way too good and up to date to not win this one ^^

ORAS OU: R!cardo vs Poek - Poek is back in his best tier and seems rlly good there. Ricardo lost quite clear last week. Will be a good one though but im going for Poek here n_n

SM DOU: stax (49) vs Demantoid (51) - Close one but stax has tied his winrate closely to his gothitelle usage while demantoid mopped up marilli with a malamar last week. I think Demantoid's creativity will help him check gothlax and win this game.

SM DOU: marilli (40) vs EmbCPT (60) - After cooling down a bit I realized Edu and I actually played a really fucking good game and he specifically played excellently throughout, while marilli got 6-0d by level 99 amoonguss and malamar. Edu's level of play has been very high and I think he'll win this week as well.

SM DOU: Croven (45) vs MajorBowman (55) - Typically predicting against Croven leads to him winning but I think Bowman has been one of the best players this season and has found himself with good matchups week after week while Croven refused to KO a Genesect and allowed himself to lose to Azu when he brought a gastrodon. Based on last week I think there's a gap in ability here that Bowman will capitalize on.

SM DOU: Kaori (50) vs Tman (50) - I haven't given a 50/50 yet in my predictions and this comes from my lack of knowledge on Tman. I know he's very good at this game but I'm just not sure how this matchup will play out, especially after some missteps from Kaori in recent weeks. I think this will be close and I'm definitely excited for this game.
