Welcome to the tenth edition of Ubers Premier League, an all-Ubers team tournament where managers draft from the pool of players to compete in a seven-week round-robin battle for Ubers supremacy. The top four teams will then advance to the playoffs, where the winning team will be crowned the premier of Ubers battling. This is Uber’s largest and premier team tournament, providing an opportunity for Ubers powerhouses to display their dominance, veteran players to return, and for new talent to emerge. In additional to the coveted red trophy and eternal fame and glory, there is also an additional grand prize this year of a custom avatar.

To be considered at auction, you will need to post with the following format:

Name:
Metagames Played:
Timezone:
Inactivity:

You must signup with exactly this format as we will be using an automated tool to convert signups into a spreadsheet. Tier lock is in effect this season, that means that for the first three weeks you can only play the tiers you advertise in your signup post. Tier lock does not apply to players drafted for exactly 3,000 credits, or the best of three slot. We ask for your name for organization reasons and for the auction. The metagames played are those that you have experience in and are capable of playing in a tournament setting. Do not post a metagame that is not one of the featured tiers. Timezone is your local time relative to GMT which helps tell managers how it will be like to coordinate. Inactivity is simply if you have any extensive period of time where you will be unavailable, (for example, gone on vacation for a week) this is incredibly important for the managers to know so that they can do their best to make sure the team doesn't suffer from inactivity.

An example sign-up:

Name: Minority
Metagames Played: SS, USM, ORAS, DPP, ADV
Timezone: GMT -6 (MDT)
Inactivity: away from computer on weekdays from 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM


Getting Picked:

After signing up, the next step is to go advertise yourself to teams to increase the chance of getting bought in the auction. The best way to do this is to go onto their individual Discord servers and follow whatever process they have for tryouts. In case it wasn't clear already, Discord activity is heavily encouraged for those wishing to participate in this tournament. Discord activity is important not only for sign-ups but also for spectating the auction and working with your team during the tournament itself. It is absolutely vital for UPL to be an enjoyable experience for you and your team. Although it may not raise your chances of getting picked, you are more than welcome to come discuss the tournament on the Ubers Discord.

If you were picked last year to be on a team, you may be eligible for retention. This will be handled by team managers during player signups.

Our tournament's new logo is the work of the talented Blazenix and was commissioned by yours truly.
