ZU Best Friends Tournament [Quarterfinals]

#1

signups | round 1 | round 2 | round 3

Welcome to the ZU Best Friends Tournament! There are many friendship groups and bonds made through playing Pokémon on Smogon, and I wanted to host a tournament which would celebrate that. This is a tournament where players pair up in teams of two and take each other on in ZU to find out who is the best duo.
  • Each match will be a best of 3 between two pairs. All games are to played in the [Gen 7] ZU format.
    • To make this clear, individual player vs player matchups are NOT BO3. Player A plays player A, player B plays player B, and then a tiebreak is played if needed.
  • If a tiebreaker is needed, the pairs will decide which player is to play the tiebreak game for their team.
  • Replays are mandatory for every battle of the tournament.
  • All tier changes will take effect in the following round of the tournament.
  • In case this was unclear, ghosting is not permitted and games are to be played separately.
Each round will last one week. Here is a link to the rules and guidelines competitors must follow. All games must be played on Pokemon Showdown! (server does not matter). If teams are inactive, I had the right to kick them and replace them with subs.

How hard can it be to finish your games in a week (or even 9 days in this case)? Sorry if I sound frustrated, but that´s because I am - having to wait for an undefined date (and not being able to rely on the deadline as orientation) to proceed to the next round is really annoying to us, who played their games.

Coinflips:
Not Miyan
vs. RawMelon - both showed some level of attempt to schedule but nothing was ever said.

Dead Game:
Poke2950 vs. LordHelix - neither put enough effort in to try to get this game done. LordHelix had activity issues in the past as well.

Tiebreaker:
Kiyo or kay vs. EviGaro or Sage


semis going up soon
