Welcome to the fourth edition of the TOURS PLAZA PREMIER. Ready to take up the challenge? It's over here!
  • The tournament will be composed of 8 teams of 8 players and a minimum of 3 subs that will compete in a straight round robin tournament, and every team will get to play against every other team. At the end of the round robin, the top four teams will move on to our series semi-finals, where the #1 seed will take on the #4 seed, and #2 will take on the #3 seed, to determine our grand finalists. A win will be worth 2 points, a draw 1, and a loss 0.​
  • Each team has 110,000 points to spend on their draft of 8 players plus 3 subs minimum, with everybody on the team playing at least once. Each player starts at 3000 points in the auction, with playing managers fixed at 12,500 points per manager. This means that each team can have two managers playing.

If you are willing to participate in this edition of the tournament, your signup post should follow this exact format:

Rules and prizes:

Activity Calls :

Make contact with your opponents! Every season we have to make activity calls that displease one party member. To prevent this, post a VM on their Smogon wall to try to set a date for the battle. If you do this via any other medium, save logs and screenshots so that in the event of an activity call, you get it to go your way. Leave time zones, preferred time to play, and be specific. No activity calls will be made if neither team's players nor managers post about it, so take initiative on that.

Dead Games :
In the event that a game is not played and neither team posts for an activity call, it will be deemed a dead game, which means that the game will be taken as to not exist. This will also be the case if an activity post is made but neither player showed a satisfactory level of activity. Schedule properly to not let these occur!

What if there is a tie?
As this will only come into effect in playoffs, for the majority of the tournament, this will not matter and the result will be noted as a tie.
If it happens in playoffs, the two teams will have to compete in 3 different matches. Each manager of each team will have to submit a tier and the third tier will be defined randomly.

What about the prizes?

The winning team will receive the following prizes:

- Room Prize Winner (^) in Tours Plaza's room.
- Winner Role in the Official Tours Plaza Discord Server
- A 20€ Amazon gift card
- $100 for each member of the winning team (courtesy of temp)

I hope everyone enjoys this tournament! Feel free to use this thread to discuss TPP and ask any questions that you may have and please keep this thread on topic as possible. Any offensive or irrelevant posts will be removed, let's try to keep things civil, peeps.

Now good luck, have fun, stay safe, and let Tours Plaza Premier IV COMMENCE!
