I am an impatient person so manager signups are going up now!

VGC PL III Overview:
  • 8/10 teams to play in an 8v8 regular season, followed by a 7v7 playoffs stage featuring the top 4 teams
  • Format overview is as follows:
    • x5 SV Regulation C
    • x1 SwSh Rotation between VGC 2020 (Series 5), VGC 2021 (Series 7/9), and VGC 2022 (Series 12)
    • x1 SM Rotation between VGC 2017, VGC 2018, and VGC 2019
    • x1 extra SwSh or SM rotation based on above poll + signup popularity
  • 120k budget for a min of 11 players, no max player cap
    • Bidding prices start at 3k
  • Each team can have 3 managers, two of which can be bought for a TBD price (be prepared for only 1 allowed to play)
  • Trades for players can happen until the start of Week 1
  • No retains from previous iterations
  • Standings will follow a points system, 2 points for a win, 1 point for a tie, 0 for a loss. (Tiebreakers will be specified in Admin Thread later)
  • All SV games are to be played in the Open Team Sheet format, old gens are Closed Team Sheet
As a manager team, your responsibilities will be:
  • attending the draft and selecting an eligible team of players
  • sending rosters to the commissioner on time weekly (Aldrich is not as kind as me so you better submit them on time
  • resolving any conflicts that arise
  • motivating your team to have a great season!
The managers will be picked by the commissioner (hi that's me), Aldrich, and any VGC forum moderators who are not participating in VGC PL III (probably none)

Why should you be selected to manage?: Because I'm bad at the game I've been a part of many other VGC team tours before, including every iteration of VGC PL. I am competent at creating (slightly) comprehensive spreadsheets for scouting/tournaments, in addition to having positive chat presence. I'm also the world's best bench-warmer.

Why should you be selected to manage?: As a relevant Smogon VGC result, we have playoffs in last Winter League with identical manager roster.

Why should you be selected to manage?:
We place a lot of emphasis on the interaction between players, as team tournaments are a platform for people to make friends and improve together. Achieving results is also a very important goal for us. In the past I have achieved solid results as a co-manager: Postwick Pranksters made runner-up in VGCPL 2. Both Makima and Metapod have achieved notable individual and team results and are interested in creating a positive, competitive environment by applying what they’ve learned through other tournaments.

Why should you be selected to manage?:
A VGCPL without the Aces feels a tiny bit fraudulent, so I'm willing to somewhat unretire to come and do this. Me and trace have managed these leagues before, we want to improve on our semi-finals finish last time around. KrelCROC is a super experienced player and manager as part of Team South Korea in the World Cup of VGC, and an Aces player from last season now stepping up to manage alongside us.

Why should you be selected to manage?:
The three of us has strong resumes within management, and we are very motivated to give it a shot in this League. Izzy and I have been working together for a while as management, and we have recently made it to NPA Playoffs as the 2nd seed in a Snowbelle Blizzards which was power ranked lowly by many other players. CML and I have also worked in the past in the Sootopolis City League, and we won the entire League as management, winning the grand prize of $800. He is also a very strong NPA competitor, having went 7-2 in NPA XI and 6-2 in the recently concluded NPA regular season. Given our strong recent history as management, I think that we will make a great addition to the League, and we would like to be given the opportunity to do so!

Co-manager(s): Stone Cold (GMT-4), Z Strats (GMT-7)
Why should you be selected to manage?: Stone Cold and me are currently managing in SSPL, ADVPL, SMPL, UUFPL and NPL together, meaning we are an experienced duo who know and complement eachother well. Z Strats is a good long-time friend of both of us. I have experience managing in WCoP and SCL and Stone Cold has also managed in WCoP, SCL and SPL, collecting almost all of his six trophies in the former two tournaments as a manager. Z Strats also has experience with doubles (he had the best record in DOU in SCL for 2 years in a row and he also played VGC in the NPA). We would like to manage a team in the upcoming VGCPL to expand our own knowledge of VGC as a format and believe that our vast experience and knowledge of the VGC playerbase will lead our team to success.
