Alright comrades, we're here to start the SS CAP Cyclohm Cup. All standard tournament rules apply. Again I would like to emphasize that ghosting is strictly prohibited and will result in your team's immediate disqualification. This tournament is a 3v3 setting with each game being a best of one. Due to a unanimous vote, there will be no additional clauses or restrictions to teambuilding.

Best of luck to all teams. You'll find the week one matchups in the post below.​

Banned deucer.
Some biased predictions

gub nogard (0) vs Badge to ICBB (3) :

Gravity Monkey vs Jordy - Jordy probably hasn't played post-dlc CAP yet, but he plays OU and he's likely to bring a solid team given his understanding of the meta. Gravity Monkey isn't to be slept on, but he still has a lot to prove. Big edge.
Gleeboop vs SHSP - Glee's still a beginner, even though he progresses quickly. SHSP on the other side is a veteran and he's played quite a lot recently if i'm not mistaken, so his dust is shaken and he's ready to take lives. Good edge.
Roxiee vs Lasen - This is probably the closest one of the confrontation. Two similar players in terms of experience, but I have to give it to Lasen because i think he's a tiny bit better, and he has more CAP experience.

DPH and Henny (1) vs Dynamic Union of Mighty Battlers Excitedly Return (2) :

G-Luke vs snake_rattler - I believe these two haven't played much post-dlc CAP, and they're very similar in terms of skill and experience on Smogon, making it very hard to decide. I'll go with my guts and bold snake because I trust him more for some reason, but he has a minuscule edge if any.
againa vs -Voltage- - Againa has looked very solid recently on ladder, in roomtours and in smogon tournaments, with a good understanding of the metagame and solid teams. On the other hand Voltage might have a slightly lower understanding of the meta and, consequently, building sharpness. Decent edge, although Voltage's unpredictability might play in his favor.
Revenge of Depressed Gay vs Wulfanator72 - I don't know Revenge of Depressed Gay so I'll bold Wulf, but we'll see what he's made of.

Blazing Pyroaks (1) vs Screens Cawmodore (2) :

Airwind vs reachzero - Very cool match between two of the best CAP players currently, who both have played the post-dlc meta quite a lot. I wanted to bold reach because i think he's a bit better overall, but it turns out he just had a second child, meaning he won't be able to sleep nor play nor prep this week, highly diminishing his chances. Congrats reach, but keeping the breed going has a cost.
Mx vs Darek851 - I've played darek on ladder and frankly he's doing very well with solid skills and teams. Mx is an all time CAP veteran, but I'll gamble the upset.
Aetherl vs Birkal - Wow I didn't expect to see a match like that in 2020 but here we are. It's crazy hard to decide because Birkal, while experienced, doesn't play the game ; and Aetherl lacks experience and still has a lot to prove, but he does play the game. I'll go with my guts once again and bold Birkal but take this with a grain of salt.
 
Quick update. Replays are in fact required. I had assumed that was a part of the standard tournament rules linked in the OP but upon re-reading them that's not the case. I would also like to encourage teams to play out all their matches. Due to the number of sign-ups the finals will likely be a three team round-robin so having a better record overall may help decide a tie.
 
Alright pals, week one has finished up. Watching all the replays has been a pleasure, this week should be more of the same. Name TBA has joined the race, and our friends Screens Cawmodore have received a bye. You'll find the week two matchups below.

Name TBA vs Badge to ICBB:
No CAP, Always Factual vs DPH and Henny:
As always best of luck to everyone. Please finish your matches and submit your replays before Sunday, November 22 at 11:59pm GMT-6.
