Welcome to the 2nd edition of ZU Majors! In this tournament, participants will start off in a pool with other players, and those with the best records within those pools will advance to the second stage. Pools will be randomised, with the exception of pool leaders. Each pool will have a leader, who is a credible player, and these leaders will be determined by tour hosts to ensure each pool is fair. After the first stage, the tournament will shift to a traditional single elimination tournament with the advancing players from each pool. The top 32* players of this tournament will earn Circuit Points according to the payout structure listed here. For an example of how this tour is run, see the precedent edition.

Tour Specific Rules

  • This is a standard SS ZU tournament.
  • The format for Stage 1 is as follows:
    • Stage 1 of this tournament will be a round robin series. Players will be placed in pools, and must play all other opponents in their pool.
    • Because Stage 1 is a round robin format, this means you are expected to play every opponent in your pool, even if you lose the first couple of games. If you are unwilling to commit to this format, do not sign up. You are also agreeing to play games with potential substitutes.
    • Each pool will have a pool leader who will be determined by current Circuit standings.
    • Stage 1 matches will be best-of-one. You may switch teams between opponents.
    • Due to the number of matches, Stage 1 will last for 3 weeks.
  • The format for Stage 2 is as follows:
    • The format will be best-of-three, single elimination.
    • Changing teams between matches is allowed.
    • Rounds will last the standard 1 week.
  • All matches are to be played on Pokemon Showdown.
  • Saving replays is mandatory, in the case of a dispute you must be able to prove that you won your game.
  • If any changes to the tier occur during Stage 1, they will not be implemented until Stage 2.
  • To encourage the development of the metagame, and so that everyone is on an even playing field, replays are required for all matches.
  • Activity calls will be made by me, potentially with neutral assistance from a TD Coin flips will be done publicly on PS!
    • As such, it is imperative to schedule publicly on your opponents' walls. Please do not schedule via PMs or Smogon convos
  • You are expected to know and follow all general tournament rules.

Deadline for playing all four of your pool games is October 24th at 11:59 PM GMT-4. Extensions will not be given under any circumstances as you have three weeks to schedule and play. Substitutes will be randomized in as needed. Reminder that pools matches are best-of-1 and replays are required.

When you report a win please let me know the pool you are in so it's easier for me to update the thread thank you!
