Welcome to Cycle 1 of Smogon's Official Ladder Tournament. Please make sure to read the rules of the tournament carefully; there has been some format changes you have to be aware of. If your sign-up post does not follow the rules explained below, it will be ignored. This Cycle will run for 8 days and will end around Tuesday, July 24th at 9:00 pm EDT (GMT-4).

Here are the specifics:

1. The host of this tournament is Quite Quiet. We will be using the regular Pokemon Showdown SM OU ladder for this tournament, not a new one. This will ensure maximum activity and competition.

2. The qualification period for the OLT will run for a total of 4 cycles with roughly 8 days per cycles. After each 8 day cycle, the top 8 accounts that appear on the leaderboard (using ELO) at the end of the cycle with the sign-up criteria explained in #3 below will qualify for the playoffs of the OLT. Playoffs will be the format explained here. The ladder is not reset after each cycle, only alts are (meaning you create a new alt after each cycle).

We are currently in Cycle 1, which means that after 8 days [ending on Tuesday, July 24th at 9:00 pm EDT (GMT-4)], the top 8 accounts that signed up for this tournament following the proper sign-up criteria explained in #3 below will be qualified for the eventual playoffs of the OLT.

3. In order to sign-up for the OLT, FOLLOW THE SIGN-UP FORMAT BELOW AND REGISTER YOUR FRESHLY MADE ALT ON POKEMON SHOWDOWN USING THE FORMAT BELOW:

[LT51np] ForumNameHere - "ForumNameHere" obviously denotes your forum name. You are only allowed one alt per cycle, which must follow the aforementioned format.

Here's an example sign-up post for you all to follow:

Forum name: Quite Quiet
Cycle 1 Alt: LT51NP Quite Quiet
Does my alt for Cycle 1 contain my forum name or a very similar variation/abbreviation of it as required by the rules?: yes
YOU MUST SIGN UP WITH YOUR FRESHLY MADE ALT BEFORE STARTING BATTLES WITH IT. You will not be allowed to edit this alt after you include it in your initial sign-up for any given cycle. By the way, make sure to register your LT alt on Pokemon ShowDown!. We've had to deal with people who got their account registered by someone else because they were unprotected. It is advised that you once you sign up here, you immediatly register the accounts on PS afterwards.

4. Once you make the top 8 and qualify (this does not mean making the top 8 at any given point during the cycle, it means being in the top 8 at the end of the cycle), you’re qualified for playoffs. You are free to ladder any other week you wish. However, making the top 8 more than once won’t give a player anything other than personal satisfaction and bragging rights. If a person qualifies again during a week after their initial qualification, the newly qualified account will be skipped and the next unqualified account will be selected from the leaderboard to participate in the tournament.

5. Given that this is a ladder tournament, many of you are likely thinking there are ways people can cheat the system. We are aware of these issues and have been working with Zarel to monitor and patrol instances of cheating. Any person found cheating will be subject to strict punishments.
To add onto that: if we have a reason to believe you forfeited a game to boost a friend's account, you will be sanctionned.

Good luck to everyone! Again, this is Cycle 1 of Smogon's Official Ladder Tournament. Please make sure to read the rules of the tournament carefully. If your sign-up post does not follow the rules explained above, it will be ignored. This Cycle will run for 8 days and will end on Tuesday, July 24th at 9:00 pm EDT (GMT-4).
