Welcome to the 2023 SV UnderUsed Ladder Tournament! After spectacular wins by pokemonisfun and Lily the last two years, we return for the first Ladder Tournament of generation 9! In this tournament, players will compete for a top spot on the ladder, and the top 8 from each cycle will then qualify for the playoffs phase. On top of that, qualifying will yield points for the official UnderUsed Circuit, in which players will compete at the end of the year for a chance to earn one of the coveted ribbons.

Playoffs Phase

This part is fairly straight-forward. During this stage, the top 32 will face off in a single elimination, Best-of-3 SV UU bracket. The first stage of the playoffs phase, where the 32 qualified players will battle each other in a swiss bracket to see who moves on to the top 16. Players continue playing in this swiss stage until they have won or lost two matches. Players who win 2 out of 3 games in the swiss stage will move on to the second stage of playoffs. In the second stage of playoffs, where only 16 remaining players remain, they will battle each other in a single elimination bracket to see who wins the whole thing.

Tour Specific Rules:
  • This is a standard SV UU tournament.
  • Best of three, swiss tournament.

Saturday round start moment.

starbitstorm  vs  Lily

Starbitstorm vs me finals would be exciting, though the chances of it happening are pretty low. I'm hoping it happens even so. We've reached an interesting point where I've built/tested with most of the remaining players, so I hope all of you enjoy the rest of the tour!
starbitstorm  vs  Lily - Being very serious here, starbitstorm is a giga tryhard, his prep is very good and is a v solid clicker overall. Lily is obviously the more proven player and her teams arent completely basic and boring but I feel sbs wins on the builder. If he gets overconfident or overly despaired he'll lose tho.

Dj Breloominati♬  vs  Mossy Sandwich - I am personally hoping for Mr mossy sandwich to win but DJ has been on a ROLL lately. Both dj and mossy kinda haxed their way last round so its hard to really say, this looks insanely hype, very close game for sure.
