SS Doubles OU 2021 Winter Seasonal :blobastonished:
☆Mishiimono)⊙﹏⊙✿(: now my moms making me leave

SPECIFIC RULES
  • This is a standard SS Doubles OU tournament
  • This tournament will be Double Elimination
  • Rounds will be Best of Three. You may switch teams in between battles of the same set.
  • Matches are to be played on Pokemon Showdown! (Main or SmogTours)
  • To encourage the development of the metagame, and so that everyone is on an even playing field, replays are required for all matches. If neither player posts replays of the match, both players will suffer an automatic game loss. (If you were in losers' when you played, you are both out. If you were in winners', the winner is in losers' and the loser is out.)
  • Activity calls will be made by me, potentially with neutral assistance from a Doubles OU Forum Moderator. Coin flips will be done publicly on PS!
  • In the event that something is added to or removed from the Doubles OU metagame in the middle of a round, that change will be in effect starting the next round.
  • Do not cheat. Cheating will result in a disqualification. Additional punishments may be applied as necessary. Cheating includes, but is not limited to:
    • Signing up with more than one account
    • Ghosting or being ghosted by another player (e.g. while playing a set, asking for advice about what team to bring or what plays to make)
    • Manipulating match outcomes (e.g. throwing a match in exchange for Smogon likes)
  • Do not harass or insult your opponents. I reserve the right to disqualify anyone breaking this rule. Additional punishments may be applied as necessary.

A reminder that REPLAYS ARE REQUIRED FOR ALL MATCHES

Highlight Matches:
Tenzai vs. Enzonana. || Tenzai finished 5th on last year's circuit rankings and made it to semifinals of last year's Smogon Snake Draft with the Lanakila Nagas. Enzonana beat Mizuhime in this legendary DWCoP game which forced Canada into a tiebreaker for playoffs. He also made Top 8 of the DUU Money Tour.

Everything Is Something vs. AtmosphereVGC || Everything Is Something (SEA#6962 on Discord and SuperEpicAmpharos on PS!) entered his first DOU tournament last fall and made it to Top 16. He is also credited with discovering Lanturn in ADV OU. AtmosphereVGC has VGC in his username, talks in the DOU Discord, and also made it to Top 8 of the DUU Money Tour.

YoBuddy vs. finally || YoBuddy finished 6th on last year's circuit rankings including a Grand Finals appearance in Winter Seasonals. He is also an avid p*garina supporter and helped lead APAC to finals in DWCoP. finally is a longtime veteran who has SPL experience and finally (heh) makes his return to the Doubles Circuit.

Usage Statistics coming soon!

Highlight Matches! Every round I will pick a few matchups I think are really interesting that will hopefully show off some high level competition or innovative gameplay. I will also be editing in the replays to the highlight matches onto the second post (here) along with replays once the matches are completed. Obviously Round 1 won't have Seasonal Winner vs. Snake Draft player, but I picked some matches I found interesting.

I have seen no public scheduling attempts nor have I been informed of any private scheduling attempts for the following matches:

MajorBowman vs. jcbc greenandgrey77 - MajorBowman has made contact. Only jcbc is at risk at being subbed out. greenandgrey77 has been subbed in for jcbc.
Cheese5555 vs. k25thank FloristtheBudew - Cheese5555 has made contact. Only k25thank is at risk at being subbed out. FloristtheBudew has been subbed in for k25thank.
gorex vs. Lyss -- Scheduled
Huston vs. avarice -- Completed

I have seen no response / attempt at scheduling from one side of the following matches: i'm referring to the bolded and tagged users

Ezrael vs. Raineko - Ezrael has responded to the scheduling attempt. They are safe from potential substitution.
Mishimono vs. Rubyad Nibir
Miraage
qsns vs. LpZ -- Miraage gave the win and qsns has been subbed in.
Everything Is Something vs. AtmosphereVGC - AtmosphereVGC has responded to the scheduling attempt. They are safe from potential substitution.
GenOne vs. tomoya sempai - tomoya sempai has responded to the scheduling attempt. They are safe from potential substitution.
LightScreener vs. miirza - miirza has responded to the scheduling attempt. They are safe from potential substitution.
CyndaKill-SH vs. conradtheawesome
Yoda2798 vs. Silensum Neblina - Neblina has been subbed in for Silensum

If you find yourself tagged in this post, you are at risk at being subbed out at the contact deadline of Thursday 11:59 PM EST (GMT -5) or 25 hours from now if you do not publicly contact your opponent or let me know you are in contact. I will randomly sub in the awaiting players on a first-come first-serve basis at the deadline for users who have not contacted while their opponent has. Even if you do not get subbed you, you still risk losing to activity or getting your matched flipped.

Current Sub List: in order
None!

Current Number of Sub Slots: 2

I will no longer be updating this post. Further activity decisions will be in a new post
