I think my team is going to forget to play on Sunday could we get an extension to Monday?re: LordST vs Plas
There were allegations that Krokorok is not legal in the tier given that it shows up on some lists of legal Pokemon but not on others. Krokorok is a legal Pokemon. I wish tier lists were completely sorted out before tournaments like these but there's only so much that I can do not being involved in the tier.
Standings after Week 5 (pre-tiebreakers)
1. Fiery Flamencos / Humilau Hakamo-os | 8 | (3/0/2) | (26-14)
3. Dragon Dancing Delibirds | 4 | (2/3/0) | (18-22)
3. Seductive Spindas / Sovereign Swannas | 4 | (1/2/2) | (18-22)
6. TCB Basculins | 1 | (0/3/1) | (10-22)
A few notes on the mechanics of this 3-way tiebreaker since this is an issue that very rarely comes up: I will give it a Sunday deadline since there's more games to prep and also almost every team is involved in some tiebreaker so it's not taking away from much playtime (sorry Basculins). Players will be allowed to play in both series (i.e. Aaronboyer can play BW for the Delibirds vs the Spindas and the Swannas, or even BW in one and SM in the other) but not required to. Absolute number of wins is no longer a factor (if the Spindas win 3-0 and the Delibirds and Swannas win 2-1, the tiebreaker continues). If all 3 teams are tied on wins as well, we'll do another tiebreaker of bo1 USUM ZU between the 3 teams until one player manages to win 2 games. This is essentially following what happened in WCOP 2019 except with one less slot being fought over.

overall an enjoyable read/post but I do want to address these two paragraphs which are outrageous...except that there were scheduling conflicts in the final week because Kushalos ignored Ninja's post until THURSDAY NIGHT and they missed each other, so I was forced to sub in at short notice and after a stressful/emotional/dramatic personal week. Maybe I'm alone in thinking this, or just "don't understand big tournaments and should just stick with lower tiers", but it seems extremely rude to me that Ninja's post was straight-up ignored for so long. I understand that the entirety of the Flamencos thought they were too good for this tier/tournament, but that's just asking for issues/problems and is disrespectful to the opponents and tournament. But whatever, I still played and forgot the #1 rule of playing people who don't know your tier: they won't guess your sets. I missed two opportunities to completely win the game, and lost my team the tournament as a result. I really hate that this reinforced the Flamencos' thoughts that they're superior to everyone and everything else, and I will always be sorry to my teammates that I let them down on three occasions, especially this one. I know I contributed a lot to building, tweaking, and testing USUM and ORAS, and I don't think BACE made a mistake drafting me, but I know that I let the team down when they needed me to be consistent.
I know I've thrown a fair bit of shade in this post, because I really don't understand why this tournament became a bunch of trash-talking on the tier and its players by "better" tournament players. I guess I'm naieve and expected that, overall, the atmosphere would be respectful and fun, rather than a constant "us vs them" and bashing on players/teams/the tier. I'm glad that the Hakamos got at least second, to show that ZU Mains aren't complete trash as players. I just wish the big tournament players on the Flamencos weren't condescending douchebags about the fact that they won, that's all.
