OU & NU Leader
It is time once more for arguably the most popular and unarguably the best tournament on Smogon: Smogon Tour. This will be our 34th season, and the sixth one of the 8th generation! We will also feature the same times as last season, which we hope will continue to cater to a wide base of players!
Smogon Tour is a series of live tournaments starting on Saturday, September 17th at 9am GMT-4. The format is the same as usual, consisting of the three most recent OU generations (SS OU, SM OU and ORAS OU respectively). The live tournaments will last 9 weeks -- constituting the regular season -- where everyone will earn a certain amount of points according to their weekly performances. Once this phase is over, we'll move to playoffs with the 16 best performers from the regular season. The winner of the Smogon Tour will obtain the glorious Pink Trophy
As usual, all the tournaments will take place on the SmogTours server, unless stated otherwise. The times at which they will start are as follow:
- 9 am GMT EST (GMT-4 currently) on Saturdays
- 4 pm GMT EST (GMT-4 currently) on Saturdays
- 2 pm GMT EST (GMT-4 currently) on Sundays
Don't forget to join our discord server to make sure you never miss a tour; you can ask here if you have any of your questions regarding this tournament. BKC has been so kind as to upload a video explaining how the tournament works and how YOU can join and play it!
You can find the video below:
Will Empo repeat as champion, taking home the trophy for the third time? Will Giannis get the job done after numerous deep runs? Is this finally time for FINCHTOUR or will we see more FINCHSALT? Will Star go a step further and win it himself this time around?
We shall find the answers to these questions and many others over the next 9 weeks! Best of luck to all!
