Information & Administrative Decisions | Week 1 | Week 2 | Week 3 | Semifinals | Finals

How this works
There are 8 teams. Each team has 6 starters and 3 substitutes. The 8 teams will be randomly divided up into 2 groups of 4 teams each. Each team will play every other team in that group, where a win earns 2 points and a tie earns 1. After the group stage, the two teams with the most points from each group will advance. Week 4 will be the playoff round between the first and second placed teams from opposite groups, with the winners moving on to the week 5 finale. Note that this schedule is subject to tiebreakers (explained below). All standard Smogon tournament rules and procedures apply.

Tiebreaker
In the event of two teams being tied for a spot in the playoffs based on points and win differential, or a tie in the playoffs/final itself, we will have a tiebreaker round. The most played metagame from usage stats (Balanced Hackmons) plus one metagame picked by each manager will give a best-of-three between the tied teams, ultimately deciding who moves on in the tournament.

Substitutes
Substitutes are allowed in this tournament. A player that has been subbed out during a week may not be subbed into any other slot. Multiple substitutions may occur in the same slot. Substitutions will be not be allowed in tiebreak series unless the hosts mandate it. However, since we prioritize games being played, we will consider extension requests so long as they're reasonable. We will also be reluctant to give activity wins to those who are clearly fishing for them.

The tier lineup is as follows:
  • SS Almost Any Ability
  • SS Balanced Hackmons
  • SS Camomons
  • SS Mix and Mega
  • SS NFE
  • SS STABmons
All games will be played on the Pokemon Showdown main server or SmogTours in the most current version of the format corresponding to those listed above. The result between players may be decided in a best-of-one or best-of-three at the discretion of both players involved. If there is no agreement, the result will decided in a Bo1 by default.

Round Information & Lineups

Each round in the World Cup of Other Metagames III will last one week, between the start of Monday and the end of Sunday (US Eastern Time). Week one begins on Monday, November 30th. Before each week begins, all teams will have to submit their lineup.

In a Smogon conversation including Ransei, The Immortal, and both captains of the team, post your lineup in the following format:
Code:
SS Almost Any Ability - @PlayerName
SS Balanced Hackmons - @PlayerName
SS Camomons - @PlayerName
SS Mix and Mega - @PlayerName
SS NFE - @PlayerName
SS STABmons - @PlayerName
Please use the same conversation for the following weeks. The deadline for each week's lineup will be 1 hour before the end of the previous week (i.e. 10:59 PM EST). Note: Failure to submit your lineup by the deadline will result in your lineup being reused from the previous week (or randomized in the case of week 1).

RE: Canada

Team Canada has informed me that Fardin will not be able to participate in the tournament due to undisclosed reasons. This isn't the fault of the team or the Captains and as such they were given the opportunity to select an eligible replacement from the signups. Canada has picked Genesis7 who will be available immediately.
