WEEK 1 | WEEK 2 | WEEK 3


Wouldn't be a Micoy tour without some puns in these, Tours Plaza Premiere III moves FOUR-ward with the FOURTH week!

Format :

Our 8 synergetic teams 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.

Note : Every player on the team must play once in the 7 weeks of round-robin

Sportsmanship: Don't be an ass. Not to your opponents, not to your team, not on PS, not on Smogon, not to me. A bit of friendly banter is ok, but please know where to draw the line. Think before you type, please.

Scheduling and Activity Wins: Contact your opponent as quickly as possible on their Smogon wall, and look out for them on PS. You will have one week from the posting of the week's matches to get it done, and I will not be granting any extensions for any reasons. If your opponent is not responding to your post on their wall, cannot be found on PS, or miss multiple scheduled times, make a detailed activity post in the thread letting me know why you deserve the win. No activity post means no activity call. As long as you have visible attempts at scheduling (such as wall posts), you will be fine.

Disconnections and Timer: A timer loss is a loss. No if's, and's, or but's about it. If your opponent is nice enough to replay that's fine, but they are by no means obligated to.

Ghosting and Identity: Don't take or give battle advice or make moves based solely on the suggestions of others, and don't pretend to be someone else in order to play as them. You will be caught, and you will be disqualified from this season as well as future PS! tournaments (BLT, PSPL, etc.).

Substitutions: Managers are free to substitute out inactive players at any point during the week with any subs they chose during the draft. Be sure to post in the thread when making a substitution.

STAAAB : Sificon vs TeamCharm: After giving it a lot of thought bc they are both good, I don't see sifi beating teamcharm in this one. (Damnit sifi that song led me to a nightcore rabbit hole).
SnM : WMAR vs PokaPK: Either, "I don't care where WMAR ranks among the other news stations in the Baltimore market, this is my go-to station for all news and weather and traffic. I start my day with Christian, Lauren and Lynette and end my day with with Kelly and Jamie"; or "I see now that the circumstances of one's birth are irrelevant. It is what you do with the gift of life that determines who you are." The latter for sure.
Rands Bo3 : i want a lamp vs Plimsoll Punks : Another quality lamp is the Brightech Carter. The versatile mid-century modern style is ideal for anyone who wants some extra warmth in their space. I would rank it as one of the best floor lamps you can buy rn.
Bo3 OU : Splash (51) vs ez (49): I am fairly sure the person on the right will have a easy time beating a um sound made by something striking or falling into liquid. Cant hear sounds if you cut your ears off (I think, idk) ez.
CaMonotype : PA vs Jolly Togekiss ^-^ : Togekiss's are weak to poison, but this togekiss is holding a Kebia Berry and learns psychic.
Doubles NU : Zoaw vs Surfy (65): Zoaw is the sound surfy makes when he falls off his surfboard.
ND Ubers : Kate vs FatFighter2 (35): Right so looking at ff2's profile I recognized his signature from that one hilarious bw delibird analysis and then I saw the gigolo joke in it, which led me to a gigolo reddit ama somehow. Therefore rooting for Kate.
ND Same Six : Ninja vs TonyFlygon : Tony's pfp has super saiyan hair. Dbz happened before naruto. Naruto has ninjas. Ninja's name is ninja.

Gen 8 STABmons + Almost Any Ability : Ax vs RichardPepper: Obviously an Ax would beat four blokes from liverpool.
Gen 8 STABmons + Mix and Mega : DerpyBoi vs Eggs McGee: Obviously even the most derpy of bois can crack some eggs
Bring 10 Pick 6 Random Battles w/ Dynamax : StitChuu vs RaJ.Shoot: ... This one is also too ez to pick!! There must be a catch. Raj is traditionally not good, bc sports anime are traditionally not good. Stitch is untraditionally good, bc eye pleasing kpop pfp's are untraditionally good. Huge fan. So picking Stitch.
Best of 3 No Team Preview Gen 6 /7/ 8 OU : Vaboh vs myjava: Wait the last three people I picked are on boyn's team...
CaMonotype : cy vs Mossy Sandwich: I will let you win this week Deerlings ig.
Gen 8 Doubles NU : Shadowmonstr7 vs RICEMAN: OOO I bet shadow is good at this tier.
Gen 8 National Dex Ubers w/ No Obtainable Formes : BasedWhat? vs 7u9i2 : Base soda is better than 7up.
Gen 8 National Dex Same Six : gorex vs TheFranklin: GG Deerlings. Enjoy a win.

SnM : fabwooloo vs PociekMociek (65): He is the fabwooliuosest. I don't think PociekMociek is fabwooly at all.

Doubles NU : Drivetacos vs LTG : Idk if one always has to drive to get tacos but one does always have to L to TG.
ND Ubers : lotiasite vs pannuracotta : Lotia site. A site sight to behold for sure. Like that one thing, that one time, that was beautiful. Probably in Norway or something. Iceland is pretty.

pannuracotta: Watch Hunter x Hunter. Read One piece. Read Berserk. Top tier fiction.

if I win, TC has to change his pfp to a Bounsweet and if TC wins, I have to change my pfp to an ugly fish snake (aka Milotic) so it's gonna be the most important battle of the entire tour!

It was 20 years ago today

They've been going in and out of style
But they're guaranteed to raise a smile
So may I introduce to you
The act you've know for all these years
RichardPepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
 
Late, but that's nothing new. I was just spending time learning the hard way that you should never let team charm play staaab. Anyways, Predicts!

Deerling in the Franxx (3) vs Bannedorus Therians (5) (The exciting battle of who won't be dead last!)

Gen 8 STABmons + Almost Any Ability : Ax vs RichardPepper - This seems more interesting than people might think. I've definitely seen richard play staaab before (and even beat tnm one time) so he has some experience here. However, Ax is more consistently invested in omms as an omm room regular and is superior in overall experience and playing skill. While I'm excited to see Richard(goat)Pepper play, and the fact he'll probably receive good support from his managers in this tier, I think ax will claim victory here.
Gen 8 STABmons + Mix and Mega : DerpyBoi vs Eggs McGee - This is an interesting match between a derpy boi and well... eggs. Both are omm players who have had ok to decent performances so far, both of them getting nice wins last week in unfavorable matchups on paper. However, based on what I've seen of both, I was more impressed by Eggs McGee, specifically by his win vs wmar, while I feel DerpyBoi's win vs ice last week was because ice choked. Most people can beat an egg, even break it, boil it or scramble it, but this boi is too derpy to do any of that, so in conclusion the egg is still standing. Eggs McGee should win here, after all, if you look at the word "eggs" you'll notice... "gg".
Bring 10 Pick 6 Random Battles w/ Dynamax : StitChuu vs RaJ.Shoot - Happened. I know over time, raj earned himself the nickname of raj.choke, and that may be exactly what he did in g2 of the series, but nonetheless, I still predicted to win here. Sorry, but its hard to imagine someone who probably spends more time likewhoring than playing mons beating someone who has as many years of experience as raj.
Best of 3 No Team Preview Gen 6 /7/ 8 OU : Vaboh vs myjava - 2 hyped up ou mains who are so far... winless! Because of that, I don't think I can say much about their performances so far, especially since vaboh played rands for the first 3 weeks. Despite vaboh being the more experienced of the 2 by a bit, I think myjava might be the slightly better ou player, and while they're both winless, I was a bit more impressed with how myjava played. I can see this going either way, but I think myjava will get his first win here.
CaMonotype : cy vs Mossy Sandwich - This took a lot of thought, and even now idt I'm certain, so I think this should be close. Both haven't had the greatest tpps so far, both with 2 losses each. Mossy has plenty of experience in camomons and camomono specifcally, but while mossy holds the advantage in tier experience, cy is the better player, and has generally performed better so far. I wouldn't be surprised if either wins, but despite cy's comparatively lacking amount of experience in the tier, I think he will win.
Gen 8 Doubles NU : Shadowmonstr7 vs RICEMAN - You know the the lineup is just for fun when you see richard pepper in staaab and riceman in doubles, which isn't to say richard is a doubles main, its to say... why is riceman slotted here? So while shadow is a very experienced doubles main, rice is a very experienced omm player and specializes in staaab, which has absolutely nothing to do with doubles nu. There is no light in rice's future this week, he shall be sent to the shadow realm.
Gen 8 National Dex Ubers w/ No Obtainable Formes : BasedWhat? vs 7u9i2 - 7u9i2 is a solid player who's unfortunately winless due to all his opponents so far being extremely solid players, facing both fc AND kate in this tier. BasedWhat has only played for 1 week while 7u9i2 has played all 3, and while I believe basedwhat is an ag player, which is arguably better for this tier than being an ubers main like 7u9i2, I think 7u9i2 is generally the better player here. 7u9i2 should win here, and as for basedwhat, it is, and always will be a question as to whether or not they are actually based (unless they remove the question mark).
Gen 8 National Dex Same Six : gorex vs TheFranklin - Hl match. Both players here are really good, and winless too. From what I know, gorex is an experienced player, but more of an ou main, while arce's been purely playing same six for this tour, and despite being winless, I think he's adjusted well to the tier. Based on previous performances for this tour, and some other performances in general, I think arce9 is the slightly better player here, and should have better support when it comes to creative building, so I think he'll get the win, in which he rightfully deserves from last week but was robbed of, here.

Icirrus City Impostors (7) vs Postwick Pults (1)

Gen 8 STABmons + Almost Any Ability : Atha vs 23Gz - Def a bit of an hl match here. Both are really good staaab players with a lot of experience and prowess in the tier, who have been doing pretty good in the tour so far. This match actually seems pretty even, but I've seen more of atha when it comes to seeing him battle in tournaments, and in regards to that, I think he's a bit better despite that loss to elgino last week, and a bit more experienced. In this battle of who staaabs each other first, I think atha has the edge, but I wouldn't be surprised if 23gz wins.
Gen 8 STABmons + Mix and Mega : fabwooloo vs PociekMociek - Happened. Originally predicted placu to win due to consistency, but good for you joey.
Bring 10 Pick 6 Random Battles w/ Dynamax : lvl100Blaziken vs javitu - I've seen a lot of fragments play in the past, and he's definitely a pretty decent player overall, and while I know javitu is a rands main, I haven't been as impressed with how he plays. Basically, I see fragments as the more established rands player here so I'll pick him to win, though I wouldn't be surprised if javitu wins, rands is rands.
Best of 3 No Team Preview Gen 6 /7/ 8 OU : airfare vs Roginald - Since these are starting to sound repetitive, I'll shorten it. Airfare's been doing well and rogi hasn't been doing well. Def a match between 2 experienced ou mains I'm looking forward to but for the aforementioned reason, I think airfare wins.
CaMonotype : temp vs Euphonos - Happened. Sorry temp but I didn't think you stood a chance against Euph, and was proven right before this was even written.
Gen 8 Doubles NU : Drivetacos vs LTG - From what I've seen and heard, taco dirver uses some pretty creative builds. Ltg has been playing doubles for a while, ever since gen 7, but I haven't been impressed with any of his more recent performances, and while taco driver may be newer, I think he has shown to be slightly more impressive?
Gen 8 National Dex Ubers w/ No Obtainable Formes : lotiasite vs pannuracotta - Huh... interesting match. I know pannu plays ubers, and has def shown he can play this tier, but loti is more experienced in both ubers and ag. This is loti's first week while pannu has been learning and building the in the tier for a couple weeks, and its hard to say who is better skill wise here, but I'll say experience wins here and I'll give the victory to former blt teammate loti, who I'm excited to see play.
Gen 8 National Dex Same Six : Leru vs lph - Lph is a decent player at best while Leru... and I know I've said this before, has 2 trophies. He may surprisingly be 1-2 rn, but same six consists of the best of the best for this tour. Also, Leru has brought some pretty neat things while playing this tier so far, so I'm confident leru will win here.

Full Moon Frosmoths (2) vs Absolute Absolposters (6)

Gen 8 STABmons + Almost Any Ability : Elgino10 vs The Number Man - Elgino pulling off a win vs atha was pretty surprising ngl, so it goes to show that elgino can take a jab at playing staaab, but staaab is where the number man jabs you. Beating atha is one thing... but when it comes to the staaab overlord, the numerical male, lets just say... the numbers aren't in elgino's favor this time.
Gen 8 STABmons + Mix and Mega : Akashi vs Icemaster - You could theoretically say... this is a battle of 2 icemasters. We all know icemaster as the icemaster that he is, but jeran has dio as his pfp and signature for his smogon account, and dio (part 1) actually has the power to freeze anything he comes in contact with at will. But in all seriousness, I think icemaster is just more experienced in the tier, even if he choked vs derpyboi while jeran beat joey convincingly. I will favor icemaster slightly, but I wouldn't be surprised if jeran wins. I said I favor icemaster but I did also say they're both icemasters.
Bring 10 Pick 6 Random Battles w/ Dynamax : Irpachuza vs Casual dot exe - These are 2 solid randbats mains so I consider this an hl. This actually seems pretty even since both players are really good and have a long history of playing rands, but this is irpa's first time being slotted in this tour while casual has played 2 weeks and is coming off a dominant win from last week. I really think it can go either way but I'll give the edge to casual.
Best of 3 No Team Preview Gen 6 /7/ 8 OU : Stareal vs Gray - Major hl match- oh wait it happened, damn. I wasn't totally sure for this but I was leaning star, I figured it would be pretty damn close, and I guess it was since it went to game 3?
CaMonotype : frostyicelad vs kythr - Happened, and I must say, I completely expected this.
Gen 8 Doubles NU : Memoric vs queso - While cheese has been doing well this time around, memoric is the best in the pool and I simply think he cannot be beaten.
Gen 8 National Dex Ubers w/ No Obtainable Formes : mammalu vs WSun1 - Wsun1's been doing pretty good so far, having only lost to kate, while mammalu has the inverse record. WSun1, being the well versed ag player that he is, has adjusted nicely to this (awful) tier, and while I'd say mammalu has done a nice job adjusting too, despite not being an ubers/ag main, I think Wsun1 is better in comparison. WSun1 has this match W sun won.
Gen 8 National Dex Same Six : 100%GXE vs shiloh - The biggest hl matches are always in same six for this tour, and this week is no exception. This is the biggest hl match of the week imo between 2 extremely good players who have both been doing pretty well. Similar to gxe vs leru, this seems pretty even actually, but I think gxe is slightly better as a player when at his best, and I think he has the more creative builds. I've seen gxe bring unconventional sets even outside of same six so I think that also says something. Because of this I feel gxe should take the win here.

Thanks for reading and see you next week.

(Apologies to anyone I may have possibly offended, please do not take these very seriously.)
