Bloo has allowed me to post this on the 24th June​

Summer is HERE Which would normally mean the return of IRC cups. Me and a plethora of guest hosts are here to you occupied all summer long with a myriad of tournaments.

Sounds good, FireMage but how is it going to work? Good question! Every week right up until the end of August, either myself or any of my guest hosts will be hosting up to 3 Tournaments per week (See tournament Schedules for lineup and times/dates). It’s sounding pretty good, isn’t it? To encourage active and healthy competition we’re also offering a 1 Win = 1 Point system In which the top scoring participants will duke it out in a Home Field Advantage style playoff to determine who will be our ultimate winner!

How to participate
Step 1 - Get access to an IRC client. (Mibbit or MiRC for example.) And ensure you can get onto the SynIRC Network. if you’re having trouble conne

Step 2 - Join #Tournaments (The Official chan for Summer of #Tournaments) on SynIRC Around the listed time Note After a determined amount of time (Hosts discretion) signups will be closed - this is prompted to change each round at hosts discretion

Step 3 - In order to sign up - Ask a channel operator to give you a voice (+v) note After signups close the channel will be muted, so please retain your voice - losing it may limit your participation in that tour.

Step 4 - Wait or the Current host to announce the matchups. Matchups for each will be posted in this thread and will be linked to in the chat. Aim to get your matches done as quickly as you can. (you may use Showdown or Pokémon Online for your matches)

Step 5 - Only the Winners of each match should be messaging the Host (the host only should be messaged) and who you have won against. Any incomplete matches by the end of round will be coin flipped. Losers will be devoiced and it’ll continue on until we have a winner.

Please save Replays if asked! (especially Finals!)

Additional tours will run up until August 25th When the finals will start and the schedules or those will be posted at the end of the week.

Tour Rules
  • All matches are Standard of the respective tiers (except Tour theme Week) and must match the Criteria for the respective tier banlists. In the Case of Tier shifts (Mostly affecting NU and RU because of the June drops / rises) those will be implemented as soon as they go live. (NU will be played with RU drops, RU will be played with UU drops - assuming any)
  • All tournament Standard Rules apply - I’ll link you to them as soon as I can - they’re mostly common sense anyway.
  • Playoff numbers will be determined by the amount of participants More that enter over the 9 weeks = more playoff spots.
As a final note, if you are interested in hosting for this, Drop me a PM or VM expressing interest - I could always use someone for Past Gens and the Other Metas!
(the tours order has pretty much been decided I'm just lacking knowledgeable people who know the tier so they can provide the best experience - Message me to see what's let and rough approximations of the dates I intend for them to roll out)

Current list of Hosts:
  • FireMage
  • Cherub Agent
  • Furai
  • Lady Salamence
  • iss
  • Vinc2612
  • Birkal
Week 1

This week we visit the powerhouse metas of Black and White, Ubers, OU and UU. And We're kicking off with the most popular Metagame, BW2 OU.

Join me, FireMage in #Tournaments on IRC if you wish to participate, it'll be standard elimination Best of 1.

Remember, there's no Gimmicks, just standard OU. So come and join us at 10pm (GMT+1) (5pm EST) on #Tournaments if you're interested in participating

Summer of #Tournaments is proud to present Grand Slam Practice Sessions!

On days not Scheduled for "official" Summer of #tournaments, tours we'll host a (Varying) tier to allow you to further prep your teams for Grand Slam.

Tomorrow 9pm (GMT+1) I'll be hosting a UU tour
Sunday 12pm (GMT+1) I'll be hosting an additional UU Tour

please note: You'll not gain any sort of points in this that'll contribute to your Summer of #t0urs total through these practice sessions the sole purpose of these is to gain practice in the relevant tier
Hey guys, with the surfacing of a new interesting tournament concept, we're adding this concept to CAP week. It will not count towards your score for the playoffs but will be an interesting experiment n which is best suited to being done live.

Submit to me or Meloetta 6 sets which contain
  • 1 OU mon
  • 1 UU Mon
  • 2 RU Mons
  • 2 NU Mons
(As it's CAP Week next week you may submit a CAP mon in place of an OU mon)

This will take place next Friday at a time (which is to be confirmed)

If you have any questions RE: this catch me on IRC

~You don't have to participate - you can just submit sets
~All sets/mons must achieve at least a d-rank (and must be usable) in respective viability rankings
In todays tour, we're going to explore a suggested tour type.
Join #tournaments in 20 minutes to be able to participate in this pioneering tournament type!
