Welcome to the finals of UPL, where a mechanical bug and a foul-smelling fruit will duke it out for bragging rights on the Internet!

Important Things to Remember

  • Good sportsmanship is expected. We have an Unsportsmanlike Conduct infraction for a reason, and we will use it if needed. Semi-aggressive play is fine, but don't go overboard.
  • Use your VM walls to schedule matches. VM activity will be a big factor in deciding activity wins.
  • If you wish to replay a disconnection, you MUST have submitted your team by FORUM PM to Fireburn before your match. If this is unclear, here is the information from the previous SPL thread:
Ah, the big beefcake. I'm going to go ahead and put this out there: we reserve the right to judge any individual match on a case by case basis, regardless of assumed precedence set. If you don't like that, you are welcome to not play. Be aware of this.

Also, to protect yourself as much as possible from DCs and timer issues, play on Showdown (because it has an at least semi reliable system of rejoining after a DC) and make a gentleman's agreement to not hit timer and not be hour-a-move dicks.

That said, here is the main way we will probably handle DCs / timing out:

To handle all DC cases...you're gonna submit your teams before the match. Oglemi and Aldaron, who are not playing nor affiliated with any team, will manage this team submission form. You don't have to submit, but if you do, you protect yourself from the opponent taking a win. If you do DC (and you can't rejoin the battle) and you haven't submitted your team, your opponent will have the right to take the win. Yes, I'll most likely make a judgment call if he is on his last turn with 1 Pokemon at 5% and paralyzed and with you at 6 100% health Pokemon, because the only way to lose this is to misclick multiple times. However, if you're at 6 100% Pokemon and your opponent is at last Pokemon 10% needing to crit flinch you 6 - 12 times for the win, I'll give him the win if you DC and haven't submitted your team.

I know people like Philip7086 will beg me "to use common sense for a judgment call" for all cases and I would normally agree, but I am giving you all a 100% out by allowing you to submit your team. Basically, submit your team, and protect yourself and your team from any and all DCs. It's a simple procedure that removes almost all subjectivity from a decision regarding a DC. Unlike with the scheduling restrictions, all you have to do is submit the team your are using at anytime before the match takes place, and you'll have 100% protected yourself. Read this rule and understand this now before you join the tournament. Since I'm stating this now, I'm basically going to ignore you if you DC, didn't submit a team, and "had a guaranteed win." Expect it. Also note that I'm going to let the PLAYER (not the team), decide whether he is going to take the win or go another route (replay same moves, replay different teams, etc.).

To further ensure no funny business, if, in the case of a DC replay, there is any concern from either party about funny business, both parties have the right to request a screenshot of the current Pokemon's stats in battle. This is irrelevant for Showdown as you can simply rejoin a battle there, but PO allows you to see the currently out Pokemon's stats if you scroll over it with your mouse. Just hit PrntScrn (windows) while scrolling over it if requested by your opponent, preferably with proof that it is a screenshot of that actual battle (consider including the opponent's request in the battle screen in the screenshot).

Regarding time outs, they are a bit more complex, specifically because some timeouts are due to DCs. The best we can do for this scenario is say that there is some number between 1 minute and 2 minutes (which we will not publicize) that we will set as a limit for timing out, and if you timeout with more than that limit time remaining, we'll assume it is a DC, whereas the opposite is a true timeout. A true timeout defaults to a loss, while the DC timeout is prone to the DC rules (did you submit or not).

  • YOU MUST SAVE A REPLAY/LOG OF YOUR MATCH OR IT WILL BE CONSIDERED INVALID. These are fun to watch and can be used for statistics and to chronicle new metagame developments over the course of UPL, so you should do it anyway!
  • DO NOT JOHN YOUR MATCHES OR THERE WILL BE CONSEQUENCES >:|
Defiant Durians (4) vs Glorious Genesects (4)

  • Pokemon Showdown is the default simulator for ADV Ubers unless both parties agree to play on PO.
  • SEND YOUR TEAMS
  • SAVE REPLAYS
  • USE VMS TO SCHEDULE YOUR MATCHES

Good luck to all!

Defiant Durians (3) vs Glorious Genesects (5)
ORAS Ubers: Lord Outrage vs ZoroarkForever - Both friends and both good players. I am feeling zf here but this really could go either way.
ORAS Ubers: Kebabe vs malefic - Both pretty good but Kebabe probably more so.
ORAS Ubers: Astounded vs orch - lol
BW2 Ubers: Nayrz vs hyw - Recover Ekiller wins games
BW2 Ubers: D4RR3N vs Monsters of Men - He's shown himslef to be so good this season that I can't see him losing.
DPP Ubers: Tomahawk vs Dilwar - More experience in the tier.
DPP Ubers: Myzozoa vs absdaddy - Abs too strong though myzozoa is too.
ADV Ubers: Transcendent God Champion vs ikarus - One of the strongest advers. When I comes down to it I can't see him losing this.

Let's have a good series to finish this.

ORAS Ubers: Lord Outrage vs ZoroarkForever - ZF is a bae. They're at a rather similar skill level, though, so it should be fun to watch.
ORAS Ubers: Kebabe vs Malefic - AFAIK Sweden lost all three of its Ubers players to inactivity, whereas Malefic is at his peak.
ORAS Ubers: Astounded vs orch - The best match of the finals.
BW2 Ubers: Nayrz vs hyw - hyw's nerves get to him as he tries to make predictions that he doesn't have to. The only way he's winning is if Nayrz finally drinks so much Bailey's that his liver explodes and he needs medical attention.
BW2 Ubers: D4RR3N vs Monsters of Men - MoM did a lot better than I expected him to, but D4RR3N is a beast.
DPP Ubers: Tomahawk vs Dilwar - I didn't know Tomahawk played DPP, but I know Dilwar didn't lol.
DPP Ubers: Myzozoa vs absdaddy - Best oldgens match, can't wait to watch.
ADV Ubers: Transcendent God Champion vs ikarus - Lol if lance actually tries it's over.

even though i'm predicting against them, GOOO GENESECTS !_!
 
ORAS Ubers: Lord Outrage vs ZoroarkForever- (outrage peaked ladder 3 times)
ORAS Ubers: Kebabe vs malefic- Game of the series imo, no idea who wins.
ORAS Ubers: Astounded vs orch- Astounded is a much better player.
BW2 Ubers: Nayrz vs hyw- Pretty sure hyw will win.
BW2 Ubers: D4RR3N vs Monsters of Men- MoM is a beast i don't think he's lost yet.
DPP Ubers: Tomahawk vs Dilwar- Depends if iris gives dilwar a team.
DPP Ubers: Myzozoa vs absdaddy I can't see abs loosing at dpp.
ADV Ubers: Transcendent God Champion vs ikarus- ikarus is the best adv player.
 
First off, I'd like to give Fireburn props on running a super-duper tournament! Thank you for giving the community a chance to participate in this lovely tournament! Your reward will be a series of extremely high-level matches by fierce competitors. Here are my predictions on selected highlight matches:

ORAS Ubers: Lord Outrage vs ZoroarkForever

This is a glorious match between a Rising Star in Lord Outrage and an established player in ZoroarkForever, who I have rated as the 13th strongest ORAS Ubers player in the world. Unofrtunately for ZF, Outrage's dominance in this tournament reminds me of myself and Bossness in the very first Ubers Premier League. Anyone who reminds me of Bossness in BW Ubers is going to play with extreme effectiveness, although ZF will not roll over and die the way MM2 always did.

ORAS Ubers: Kebabe vs malefic

A fascinating matchup between two players with SPL starting experience. Kebabe has always been able to use lesser-known Pokemon such as Bronzong to his advantage, whereas Malefic prefers the boring standard builds Dice likes so much. Unfortunately for Malefic, Dice's teams are hax magnets and Kebabe is a lord so I have to go with him. An upset might be in the cards, though, as Malefic is just wonderful.

BW2 Ubers: Nayrz vs hyw

YES! HYW! Henri is the nicest young man I have ever met on Smogon, and is aware of how good Magic Sun is in BW Ubers. If Nayrz brings a Stealth Rock Arceus-Psychic, hyw is in trouble. If not, expect hyw to do great things. You have a fanboy in me!


Also picking absdaddy (LC fam), ikarus (bring boltbeam Latios), Tomahawk (cute user), Astounded (i have no idea on that one), and whoever is getting activity vs D4RR3N this week. If there is indeed a tie, I hope hyw will get to play in the tiebreaker.
