This eighth UPL season will start off with the selection of team managers. Only post in this thread if you would like to manage a team – all other posts will be deleted. Returning managers will have relatively stronger claims, but in the end we will be selecting the managers that we believe will make for the best UPL. You must signup in this thread to manage. You must be active for the entire tournament (approx. 2 months) and be capable of sending in weekly lineups on time.

The tiers that will be featured this year are:

- SS
- SS
- USM
- ORAS
- BW
- DPP
- ADV
- WILD

The wild slot is to be voted on by the selected managers. Two additional slots may be added, contingent on signups.

Manager Rules For Taking Over UPL Teams:

Taking over a UPL team from last year means that you are using its name and retention rights for this season, and requires at least one of the following sets of credentials:

- You were the team’s manager last year
- You were part of the team’s legacy in at least one year (manager, assistant manager, player, substitute) and last year’s manager does not object
- You have received explicit permission from last year’s manager and said manager has confirmed with me

The same credentials apply if you wish to take over a prior UPL team that did not exist last year, however, you will only be given its name (no retention rights). Meeting one of these credentials does not necessarily mean you will be selected to manage a team. If two qualified managers request the same team, the one with the superior credentials outlined above will be selected.

We are considering expanding UPL from six to eight teams this season, contingent on signups, so don't be afraid to signup under a new franchise. A new team requires a new team name (subject to approval), and will also have no retention rights. This rule is in effect so that new teams are not arbitrarily given a better set of defunct team retention rights as compared to another new team. Remember, retains exist to reward the scouting of new talent and to promote team legacy.

Teams that have participated in UPL at least 3 consecutive years will be given legacy status. This means that their names can no longer be overwritten. As of now, two teams have legacy status: DaReal Drizzlers and Defiant Durians.

Signing Up:

At minimum you must include the following in your post. If you do not yet have an assistant manager, leave it blank and edit when selected. Have your assistant manager confirm by liking the post. An assistant manager is highly encouraged. Both the manager and the assistant manager will have the option to self-purchase prior to auction for exactly 20,000 credits.

Assistant Manager:
Desired Team / New Team Name:
Past UPL Experience (Year / Role):
Significant Team Tour Experience (Tour / Role):
Bio (quick intro on who you are):


Signups will be open at least until June 14th, with selection before player signups are posted.

Bio (quick intro on who you are): Idk what to say here. French Ubers player number 1987 ? Globaly, I'm playing a lot of Smogon tournament, in majority teamtours, with 80% of the time decent results. Since i'm here since 4/5 years, i'm starting to know well a lot of cummunity, but more likely the ubers one. Recent gen as well as old gen.

Kf's own description :

Past UPL Experience (Year / Role): played last 2 UPL, I did 5-2 with mukkers last year

Significant Team Tour Experience (Tour / Role): 2 upl, 1 snake draft as a player. I have manager experience through French teamtours (spl like format, my team won twice in 3 editions)

Bio (quick intro on who you are): I'm an ubers player since 2011, I started on PO then moved to showdown. My first relevant performance was the finals of ubers open 2017,which had no winner. I did ssnl finals a couple of times, and many good performances in individual tournaments. My teamtours on smogon were 2 upl which were pretty good experiences, I was drafted by Iron man twice and did well. I had a very poor snake II, because of lack of motivation at this period. I know the last 4 gens well as I've played them as current gens, I also have decent knowledge in dpp and adv. I'm also a ladder hero, and I'm currently in ult playoffs.

Skysolo and Enzo Gorlami were given Pohjis' blessing to take over Durians, so if anyone signed up to take over durians who aren't memeing you'll need to edit your post accordingly (and actually follow the signup format), otherwise you won't be in consideration.

I'll be closing this thread on June 14th so make sure your signup is in before then.
 
Assistant Manager: Nobody - I will delegate a player to assistant manager post draft - if this is a problem, let me know.
Desired Team / New Team Name: Heavy Duty Ho-Ohs
Past UPL Experience (Year / Role): Played and won UPL 5 with the defiant durians / UPL 6-7 as a player on Drizzlers
Significant Team Tour Experience (Tour / Role): Played Ubers in Smogon Snake Draft 2. Player in SPL X. Managed for Ubers Most Wanted I.
Bio (quick intro on who you are): I want to put an end to the egregious elitism that the ubers community displays. I want to carry the new generation of ubers players forward and give them a chance, because I believe the development and future of the community is a more important collective goal than winning. I have a lot of experience in all generations of ubers featured in this tournament. Also, whats a UPL without the weeb team?
