2012 Summer Grand Tournament -
Star Tournament

Introduction

Hello everyone! I am Usurping Bark, and I have participated and hosted a number of tournaments in the past. Most of my tournaments, including this one, are based on the same format as soccer World Cups (if any of you watch FIFA). I am looking for active participants to battle in this Summer Tournament, which is bound to be really fun.

Rules for Battles

- Standard 6v6 BW OU Singles
- All battles must take place over Pokemon Online
- No Uber Pokemon
- All Standard Rules (http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?468340-Official-5th-Gen-Tier-List-amp-Standard-Rules-Discussion-Thread) apply to this tournament

Tournament Structure

The Tournament will comprise of 32 participants, all of who will be broken up into Groups. They will all work their way up and attempt to reach the Round of 16, which is the Elimination Round. From there it's set up like a normal single-elimination tournament until the Finals. Before the Final Match to decide who is Champion, there will be a match to decide Third Place.

To begin with, every player will be divided into eight groups of four. The Qualifying Round (Round of 32) guarantees each participant a minimum of THREE MATCHES. During this Round, every combatant will be duking it out to reach the top two slots in their Group. During the qualifying round, participants will receive points for their matches. A win will grant the player 2 points, a tie will provide each player 1 point, and losing a match rewards 0 points. Now, it should be noted that ties work different in this Tournament. If the score at the end of the battle is either 1-0 (meaning the winner only has a single pokemon left) or 0-0, the match ends in a tie. Now you may ask: why am I doing it this way? Well first of all, 0-0 is an extremely rare way for battle to end. Also, if a player loses in a tight and heated battle and the winner's last pokemon has nearly fainted, the loser shouldn't be penalized entirely, in fact they deserve to split the battle. It's to make the Qualifying Round more intense, perse.

The Round of 16 begins the Elimination Round of the Tournament. There are no ties, a win is a win, and once a player loses they are out of the Tournament. In the case of a 0-0 tie, the two players will play eachother again. In the case of another 0-0 tie, the decision will be dealt with by a random number generator in which one player will represent a certain range of numbers and the other represents the other half of numbers.

The Quarter-Finals (Elite 8) are done with Best Out of 3 Matches. Ties are dealt with in the same fashion the Round of 16 were. The Semi-Finals (Final 4) are also done with the best out of three matches.

The Finals and the match to decide Third Place is decided with the person who wins the best out of seven matches. There will be no ties, no exceptions. In case of a 0-0 tie in the seventh match, the results will be decided in a manner which is to be decided if the ocassion arises.

The results of all battles should only be reported by the WINNER in this thread. In the Quarter Finals and on, every individual battle should be reported by the winner, not just the winner of the series. This is so that I can easily document everything. Thank you.

Commonly Asked Question

Common Questions

Q: My opponent is inactive? What do I do to avoid disqualification?

A: If you have PM'd your opponent and they do not respond, mark your activity by PMing/VMing me and/or posting on this thread so we can see you are the more active of the two.

Q: I'm going to be away for the first few days of Round One. What can I do to avoid being subbed out?

A: Not sign up.

Q: Why must all the battles be done on Pokemon Online?

A: It keeps all battles consistent, and all PO battles are logged, which will settle any disputes.

The Most Important Thing

STAY ACTIVE.

I want this to be an active tournament, and do not want anyone quitting. This tournament will probably last until the end of July. I want all participants to be able to participate in at least two battles weekly max, as PO battles are really not that time consuming. I really want this tournament to move along at a good and high-beat pace, so please don't mind me if I am a little pushy.

Thank you.

Everyone! I would like to inform you that I will allow you to begin battles, but we are still waiting on one more person to join the tournament. Please remember, the winner should report back with the results (only the winner) and if the game ends in 1-0, it's a tie. Deadlines and results will now be recorded in the first post. Good luck, and to anyone in my group, I am typically on Pokemon Online (on the Pokemon Online server). PM me with a time (preferably in EST) and I can typically get on and battle.

Usurping Bark
21st May 2012, 11:02 PM
1.) Deadlines for the Round of 32 are up on the first post so everyone knows. The Round of 16 may begin sooner if battles finish earlier than the deadlines state.

2.) To Sietse23, if there is documentation that both parties wanted to have a re-match, then I do not see what's stopping you to. But a re-match cannot be demanded. It is just like in any sports game or competitive game, sometimes things happen (which is why in later, more heated rounds, it's best of 3).

I know that it's non-conventional and maybe a little bit of a pain, but it really makes you want to win (get a good win in) badly and can leave room for comebacks in battles to at least equalize, and makes for an interesting Round of 32, as the cards can fall in many different ways.

Oh by the way, since you've already done this with someone else:

I worked it out, and kuja has clinched making it to the next round as well, because even if there's a 3-way tie at 4 points (which is the only way that spots in the next round would be up for grabs), he has the tiebreaker over one of the other people guaranteed.

I've contacted extroph and BJ5000 (lol) for battling, and it looks like we should be done by tomorrow night if everything works out.

Beat TerraWolf in a forfeited match, went up early 6-4 for the win. Great match, two missed moves early on cost you, and I'm sorry (gg).

EDIT: Also, for members of Group A, tentatively all matches with brainstorm are auto-won, as he seems to have signed up without thoroughly reading the rules and is being difficult to contact. If he is willing to battle before the deadline of Match 1, he will be re-entered, but until then forfeits all games. This will be the procedure for anyone who has gone MIA as far as participating in this tournament goes. BUT, this may change due to how other Groups play out.

A lot of these groups are becoming tied up with records, which is why the actual score at the end of the battle will come in handy. It will be the scores that will decide who will move on and who won't. And the the scores are still too close, another battle will decide who will make it to the Round of 16. Will post again soon with an update!

Well, if we do go by the scores of the battles, that would mean I would advance over extroph. (I'm assuming this based on me winning a match 2-0, and losing a match 2-0, while extroph won a match 2-0, and lost a match 4-0, leaving me with the best overall score.) While that's an option, I really wouldn't be in favor of that, because I think we should get the three first round battles that we were guaranteed. I'd be willing to do another battle with extroph, winner advances to the next round, if that's all right with him and the OP. Just throwing that out there as an option, because I really wouldn't want to advance to the next round by default like that.

Thank you. Those who haven't finish all their battles yet but ARE moving on already, STILL NEED TO FINISH their battles, otherwise they forfeit those battles, and that may even change and complicate their status in the Round of 16. Though they may make the participant list for the Round of 16, all battles count because it will decide who battles who in that round.

I will be calculating, based on record and who-battled-and-won-against-who, to see who made it to the Round of 16. Under the Round of 16 category will be a participant list (not the bracket yet).

Everything should have been updated and edited accordingly.

ANNOUNCEMENT: I have updated the first post to include a new total deadline for the Round of 32! Because there are only a few spots that need to be decided, I do not want to have people waiting forever for their next battle. So the deadline for Round of 32 battles is June 1st! At that time, whatever battles have been recorded will be used to decide who will move onto the next round, there are no exceptions. If an opponent refuses to battle, please record this through PMs and the like, and with valid evidence, the game will be forfeited in your favor so things will advance properly and with haste. I believe we only have a couple of battles left anyways. :)

Thank you for being so patient and making this such a good tournament thus far!

I'm calling ******** if ScubaSteve doesn't move on. He has been more active

While I see your point, I'd actually have to lean the other way here. Because personally (no offense to ScubaSteve) I wouldn't want someone who hasn't won a battle move onto the next round of a tournament.

Well in my defense, other than Rairyan, nobody else has been responding to me...

Not your place to decide, if he said he was randomising then that should be good enough for us

I will be doing this through a coin flipper from random.org, and will edit post with a picture of the results (the website includes the time), you all will see the time that I originally posted this and when I add the picture (so there is no shadiness). D.Gray will be tails and Scubasteve will be heads - both, as far as a case for themselves are even (D. Gray with a better record, and Scubasteve has been active in this thread). But you see which die of the coin represents which, so I cannot decide AFTER the random generation. Post with results soon.

EDIT:

4-1, no ********, no nothing. I could've cared less either way, both were great competitors who I hope participate in the next tournament I host in the future. The bracket for the Round of 16 and the rest of the tournament will be up soon.

No, all of the first place spots in each group got the top 8 seeds, and play the second spots in OTHER groups. See the bracket that was added to the first post.

EVERYONE, please get your matches in as soon as you can. Round of 16 is a single battle single elimination (best of 3 does not begin until the Quarter Finals (Elite 8)).

EDIT: Mankey, I realized that I had you placed against your own Group member in the first round, and I edited the bracket to fix this. So now the bracket is different, please see the newly posted one on the first page (most matches SHOULD be the same).

Been in contact with Rairyan, but life keeps being inconvenient, especially during the early stages of our matches, cutting us off.

I am sorry, but in order to keep things moving, I am giving Rairyan the win (he has contacted me, and frankly, after two battle attempts I was able to make this decision, since he was up). I understand life not being convenient, and in these later stages, more time is needed for battles. I wish you luck with everything and thank you for participating (as well as all others). :)

Also, the Quarter Finals matches are now up!!! Remember, these are the BEST OF THREE MATCHES. I want all three being played (even if a person wins 2 straight). When you report a game, please also leave the score. All three games can be reported at once, or you can give some time in between to re-strategize (or even use a different team). Best of luck to the eight of you!

Okay, since this still hasn't happened yet:

Trollfreak is on http://xat.com/serebii_america around midnight or later EST, occasionally. Haven't seen him there for the past few days, but it's worth a shot, since he's been there before. Usually under the name Black Bear.

Hope that helps.
