RULES AND REGULATIONS:
* NEW RULE: You must demonstrate good sportsmanship during your challenge. Any user who does not act in a sportsmanlike manner, as judged by Aeolus, will be subject to symbol removal or disqualification.
* In order to regulate traffic and maintain integrity of eligibility, only thirty-five (35) trainers may seek to conquer the Smogon Frontier at a time. When the maximum have been admitted, registration is closed until a spot opens.
* If there is an open spot to challenge the Smogon Frontier and you wish to participate, you must sign up by posting here. Registration opens Sunday, 23 November 2008 at 7:00 PM EST. In your post, include the following information:
- Shoddy Username (THIS MUST BE THE SAME AS YOUR SMOGON FORUMS ACCOUNT USERNAME):
- Time Zone:
- Favorite Pokemon
* If you are admitted to participate in the Smogon Frontier as one of the active challengers, congratulations! Your next step is to challenge one of the Frontier Brains listed above.
* Shaymin-S is currently banned.
* If you have challenged the Frontier once before, do not sign up again.
* There is no set order with which you must challenge the Smogon Frontier. You are encouraged to play any brain that you see on the server. IF YOU DO NOT "RUN INTO" BRAINS REGULARLY ENOUGH, YOU MUST SCHEDULE A MATCH VIA FORUM PM.
* Any Frontier Brain may choose to decline any challenge for any reason, at any time, without explanation.
* Challengers must have at least one (1) official Smogon Frontier battle per week. Challengers also have a maximum of 30 days from admission to the program to complete their challenge. Failure to remain active will result in removal from the program. Exceptions to this rule may be granted when deemed appropriate by the Frontier Brains.
* All battles, with the exception of the Roulette Goddess, will be standard OU matches subject to the prevailing rules of the standard ladder.
* Contests with the Roulette Goddess are structured as a "best of three" series of randbats, or challenge cup battles. These must all occur consecutively, in one sitting. Level balance must be in effect and evasion/ohko moves are allowed if you happen to get them.
* Players are allowed two rematches during their challenge of the Smogon Frontier. Rematches may be conducted no sooner than 24 hours following the challenger's original defeat.
* All Smogon Frontier Challengers are ineligible to rematch a Smogon Frontier Brain to whom they have lost until they have played all remaining Frontier Brains
* Any challenger that loses 3 matches has failed and will be removed.
* Challengers must battle on the name with which they registered for the Frontier in order for matches to be counted as official.
* Frontier Brains must battle on those names prefixed with their official title in order for matches to be counted as official (i.e. Arena Tycoon Aeolus, etc.)
* Spectating Official Frontier Battles will be permitted at the discretion of the respective Brain.
* All battle results must be reported to Max or Blue Kirby, they will be responsible for updating results on the site. Battle results are subject to confirmation by the Frontier Brains.
* I reserve the right to revoke any symbols won through deception or obvious exploitation of rule loopholes.
* A mystery prize awaits any trainer who conquers the Smogon Frontier by collecting all twelve symbols! Nobody has EVER defeated the Smogon Frontier... will you be the first one?
Congratulations to our thirty challengers!
If you did not make the following 35, keep an eye on the status of the tournament, as once someone is eliminated, a spot will open, and who gets it will be determined once again on a first come-first serve basis.
Good Luck and battle well :)
