Hello everyone and welcome to the Serebii Premiership! In this league style tournament, six teams will participate in head to head matches for five weeks. Afterwards, the top 4 teams will compete in the Serebii Premiership Play-offs.

I] Format
II] Battle Rules
III] Managers
IV] Auction
V] Schedule
VI] Prizes

I] Format

As the tournament progresses, teams face each other in head to head battles with 5 battlers per side who play. Each team will want between seven and nine players, however they can have six or more than nine. Below is the list of metagames in which each team will be playing:

BW Overused 1:
BW Overused 2:
BW Overused 3:
BW Ubers:
BW UU:
BW RU:
DPP OU:


The managers of each team will PM me the team they are playing with each week. If a player is inactive during the week, a substitution can be made for that player.

During the league stages, a win will earn the team three points, a draw will give the team one point, and a loss gives the team nothing. In the case of a tie at the end of the league stage, the Win/Loss Difference of each team will be used in order to determine which team goes through to the play-offs. In the case of a tie in the semis or finals, each team will select one member from their respective to play a tiebreaker in BW Overused.

The standings will be updated each and every week visible to teams and spectators.

II] Battle Rules
- All battles are to played on the battle simulator Pokémon Online.
- Standard Serebii rules and Clauses also apply
- Here is a list of banned Pokémon and abilities for BW Overused:

Abilities
• Moody

Pokémon
• Arceus
• Blaziken
• Darkrai
• Deoxys-A
• Deoxys-N
• Deoxys-S

• Ho-oh
• Kyogre
• Lugia
• Manaphy
• Mewtwo
• Palkia
• Rayquaza
• Reshiram
• Shaymin-S
• Thundurus
• Zekrom

In addition to these bans, the abilities Drizzle and Swift Swim are not allowed on the same team.

Finally, for BW Overused and BW Ubers, abilities that have not been released in the Dream World are banned. Here is a list of eligible Dream World Pokémon and abilities.

III] Managers

The managers will be the most important part of a team. They decide who plays what metagame and when, and deal with the finance (explained later on). There are currently Five Managers out of Six, and they are Blue Harvest (http://www.serebiiforums.com/member.php?132226-Blue-Harvest), Dragonuser (http://www.serebiiforums.com/member.php?247098-dragonuser), Gamefreak (http://www.serebiiforums.com/member.php?56639-Gamefreak), Pureatrainer (http://www.serebiiforums.com/member.php?181064-Puretrainer), and ThatsJustPeachy (http://www.serebiiforums.com/member.php?282299-ThatsJustPeachy). If you think you have what it takes to be the Sixth manager, please PM me with the following form:

Name:
Timezone:
Activity on the SPPf:
Team Name:
Team Banner Details (mascot, background, text etc.):
Why I should be a Manager:

Note: Only one of you will be chosen
A Team Name may not have anything profane/racist etc. in them, we want to keep them appropriate. In addition, the mascot of a team must be a Pokémon. Finally, when a manager has been approved, it is advised for them to make a chatroom for their team.

Please note that a manager cannot play in the league stages for a team, so if you want to battle, do NOT apply to be a manager. Applications will be accepted until 96 hours after this post. Afterwards, the managers will select the players they want to battle for the Serebii Championship under the following system:

IV] Auction

A sign-up thread for people who want to play in the league will be opened once all the managers have been selected. The sign-up post will be filled in like this:

Name:
Tiers:
Timezone:

The sign-ups will last for a week, and after, the auction will begin.

Each manager will be given $30,000 to use to bid on players they want for their team. The minimum bid for each player is $1,500, but there is no cap; just don't overbid! When you want to raise the bid, you must raise the bid by a minimum of $500.

Players will all go to the highest bidder. During the mid-season, three days will be given for managers to trade each other players in whatever they choose. In addition, a new sign-up thread will be open during those three days for those who either didn't get bid on, or missed the initial sign-up thread.

V] Schedule

Week 1: Manager Sign-Ups and Selection and Player Sign-Ups
Week 2: Auction
Weeks 3-8: League Stages
Weeks 9-10: Play-offs

VI] Prizes

To be unveiled on a later date.

-----------------

Just incase you didn't know already, this is NOT a sign-up thread. I hope this will be an overall good experience. Get to PM'ing, Managers!

since some people dont know this, there wil b a seperate thread(or xat) where we will do our bidding. Thats why its pretty important that u get ur name known to managers rite now(through tryouts) so that way they will bid on u when auction starts. Thread bidding is gonna b open where everyone can see, while xat would be more hidden.

I, The Almighty and Sexy Lucs99, have THREE huge announcements for you all.

First off, after speaking with the almighty and great Theebay707, the one who is co-hosting this tournament with me, behind the scenes since he’s banned, we decided that we were going to add two new tiers to this tournament, ADV and BW RU. So, if any of you decide to update your application, please do so as we will do a double check on who signed up and match it with the spreadsheet.

Secondly, instead of each manager getting $30,000 to use to bid on players they want for their team, it will be raised to $50,000. But, the minimum bid on a player of $1,500 and minimum to raise of $500 still apply

And finally, we have our Sixth Manager, OMN's_SkyNet18!
So, our Six Managers are:
Blue Harvest (http://www.serebiiforums.com/member.php?132226-Blue-Harvest) with her team name of “Team Cloverpod”
Dragonuser (http://www.serebiiforums.com/member.php?247098-dragonuser) with his team name of “Scyther Slashers”
Gamefreak (http://www.serebiiforums.com/member.php?56639-Gamefreak), whose team name will be announced/edited at another time
OMN_SkyNet18 (http://www.serebiiforums.com/member.php?108253-OMN-s_SkyNet18”).with his team name of “The Whirl Islanders”
Pureatrainer (http://www.serebiiforums.com/member.php?181064-Puretrainer) with his team name of “The Spear Pillar All-Stars”
ThatsJustPeachy (http://www.serebiiforums.com/member.php?282299-ThatsJustPeachy) with her team name of “Classiest Cleffas”
So, those of you who signed up, get to contacting those managers for Try-Outs so you’ll have a higher chance of getting onto a team!

Eaglehawk
24th March 2012, 2:38 AM
Oh. Luc's post kinda confused me.




Do NOT request to be on a particular team, as that is not how this will work. Each player will be bidded on; they will go to the highest bidder. Each manager will start off with a budget of $30,000. The minimum bid for each player is $1,500 and the minimum raise is $500. This will go on until each team has at least seven players. There will be an on-site auction sometime next week, when we get enough participants.

Ísjaki
24th March 2012, 2:41 AM
Oh. Luc's post kinda confused me.

nah more people here play NU because the ladder is small and they think they're good at it, ru is the same but there are a few better players than on the nu ladder where there's only about 10-20 decent players on the nu one

Gamefreak
28th March 2012, 7:12 PM
Increasing the budget won't doing anything. That is just more money to increase the price on both you and Erio.

It would have been a little better if Erio kept her true identity quiet. That way I would be able to buy you both for 28k. Now I can't afford both of you.

stone_cold22
28th March 2012, 7:29 PM
Why would she keep it quiet? That's cheating.

The point is, this credit system wasn't thought out well enough. 50k for 9 players is merely 5k a player give a little. That's not gonna cut it.....you need around 90k atleast for 10k a player on average, I believe that Lucs and whoever else should increase this asap. I mean, I shouldn't go anywhere near 30k and now I am....it's dumb. All I wanna do is play w/ erio ffs <_<

Gamefreak
28th March 2012, 7:35 PM
It may not be playing fair, but it isn't cheating. It isn't against the rules.

If they increase the budget to 90k, then someone would spend 45k on you. They would have more money to waste.

I can understand that you want to play with Erio. Although for that to happen, there has to be some change in the system. Something different from the one you mentioned.

stone_cold22
28th March 2012, 7:36 PM
Bro they aren't gonna pay 45k for me, that's just stupid. A price increase is clearly how to solve it, look at SPL, worms didn't go for 50k lol. The managers just need to have strategy.

Guess Kaitii was right after all, you did "forget" heh. ;) Figures as much.

Gamefreak
28th March 2012, 8:03 PM
Price increase also gives you more money to spend on other people. So Arab Money would probably go for 15k for example. I will take your word for it though.

The difference between this and the Serebii league is that the Smogon league had far more good players to pick from. Stone at Smogon you won't go for as much because there are equivalent good players to pick from. But here? Who else is there? A few good players like Windsong and Fatty sure but that means good players will be in extremely high demand. Supply and demand. Increasing the overall money we have is stupid as all it will do is make the bidding take longer. That would just create meaningless inflation.

Only two real ways to fix this.

One is to get more good players, enough to make you or others less likely to be worth half our entire paycheck. That pretty much means importing dudes from Smogon but then we run the risk of dickholes like Noodlez refusing to play based off who he is bought by.

The other option is to let the 50k run down and allow all current bids to be claimed, then increase the money we all have by 50k and allow a second wave of bidding. As long as Stone / Windsong / etc are claimed the extra money wouldn't just all go to bloating their prices even more.

So a free-agency bidding of sorts

This thread....*shakes head* (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ykVuLVhw7MY&feature=relmfu)

Edit: Why has Game stepped down as manager so Stone can have his own way and play with Alice....This is a joke...Players should not be allowed to dictate a tournament. When you sign up as a player you know any manager could potentially pick you up be-able to 'cherry pick' your team goes against the auction style.
