All players must sign up if they wish to play in the Smogon Premier League, even those who will eventually be retained to their past teams. It is important to note that the Smogon Premier League is an 11 week event and that the activity level of a player is significant. Do not sign up to play for a team if you do not intend to see the tournament through to the end. This includes maintaining a competitive attitude if your team is already eliminated from playoff contention. You never know whether or not winning your end-season matches will make you a more valued player next season, so even if your team isn’t necessarily in the playoff picture anymore, there’s always value in playing your best. Failure to complete matches in a timely manner consistently may result in being barred from entering the Smogon Premier League in future seasons.

The format for signing up to play in the Smogon Premier League is as follows:

Player Name: Zebraiken
Tiers Played: ORAS OU / ORAS NU
Timezone : GMT -5 (CDT)
Significant Time Missed?: Yes, (2 weeks in January, exams)
The sign-up list will then be taken and sorted into appropriate lists for each of the 12 metagames (two slots for ORAS OU, remember). The current metagame list is as follows:


Guidelines for Players:

- DO NOT sign up if you cannot commit to the entire season, which will run from January until the end of March. If you know in advance that you will be gone for a significant period of time (such as for exams, vacation, etc.) then PLEASE make note of it in your post so managers can plan accordingly. If I hear that any player knew in advance they would be gone for a significant period of time and did not notify the League in advance then action WILL be taken in future SPLs and potentially all tournaments.

- Plan to participate in your team's IRC channel. If you do not have IRC, please see the page on Smogon's main page on how to access IRC. IRC is what makes SPL fun. It helps you test, get to know your teammates, find out when battles are happening, and for general trashtalk in #spl. Speaking from experience, if managers know that you do not use IRC, you will have an extremely small chance of being picked.

- In order to ensure the best possible experience for yourself, the managers, and your team, please do NOT sign up for any tier you are unwilling to play. If you would not seriously consider playing that tier in a tournament environment, do not list it. The tiers you put down in your signup are not binding, but they will affect how your prospective manager sees you, and as such they should be as accurate to your skillset as possible. Don't make dumb joke posts about playing tiers you do not care for.​

Signups will last until the auction day, which is currently to be determined.
