Crystal Gym Leader Tournament (ROUND 3 ENDS AUGUST 20TH)
 
Let's make this short, sweet and to the point so that we can get this over with, mkay?

So! This is the part you've all (allegedly) been waiting for--the selection of the new gym leaders. This will be a relatively standard tournament, exact format to be determined when I see how many people sign up. I'm looking for at least eight leaders; I would prefer nine to twelve, but we can get started with just the eight.

Rules:

1. Registration deadline is currently set at midnight (GMT-5) on July 10th. There is no upper limit to the number of registrants, and the actual tournament structure will be ironed out when I see how many people are interested. However, the tournament will not start without at least seven people. If there are fewer than seven by the deadline, I'll extend it.

2. Pokémon are expected to be casually trained. If you intend to play competitively (EV training, etc.), do not enter this tournament and enter the Chrome League equivalent instead. You may enter both as long as you use two different and appropriate teams for each, and understand that priority will be given to people who only entered one tournament if there's a dispute over spots. You must also be willing and able to keep two gyms running at once should you be chosen as a leader in both tournaments.

3. When registering, include your friend code and your timezone (in GMT) in your post; you won't be officially registered until you do so. I will attempt to do my best to make sure that people aren't paired against someone with a drastically different timezone unless there's no way around it.

4. Make sure you're well-acquainted with the league rules as well as the Crystal gym leader rules before you decide to enter.

5. Disconnects that occur ten or more turns into the match when one player is significantly ahead of the other count as deliberate and as a loss for the player who was losing; unless they can make a satisfactory argument, that player will also be disqualified.

6. This tournament is going to finish. I'm not kidding here. Whatever the format is, there will be a deadline for each round and you will finish your battles by that deadline or I'm kicking you out and moving on without you. There will be no second chances, and no, you won't get a gym leader position even if your DQ loss would normally guarantee you a spot. If you can't meet your opponent for battle then you'd better have a damn good excuse and you'd better tell me about it beforehand.

Ideally the league should have twelve leaders, four for each tier, though we may not get enough of a turnout for that to happen right away. Depending on the number of entrants, the top eight to twelve will be given a spot. Your tier will be determined by your position once the tournament ends--the winner and runners up will be tier three, the next best will be tier two, etc.. There may be additional prizes for the winner if I can scrounge something up and get my Wi-Fi to cooperate.

Sign up and ask any questions in this thread. Now get going: remember, you have until the 13th to sign up. Good luck.

Round 3 has started. You have until the end of August 20th to contact your opponent and complete your battle.

I'm perfectly willing to give the winner a shiny of their choice, if said winner isn't me.

Anyway, signing up for this one.

Oh, I don't mind at all. I'd even distribute 'em for you if you like, since from what you say you have problems with your connection.

Re: Crystal Gym Leader Tournament (DEADLINE JULY 10TH)
 
Eh, oh well. Also, is it mono-type, or can it be a variety?

Kratos Aurion 07-09-2010 01:44 AM

Re: Crystal Gym Leader Tournament (DEADLINE JULY 10TH)
 
Whatever you like, so long as it falls within league rules. We never saw it as necessary to require sticking to single types or themes, but you're welcome to.

Since you've only got seven victims people, I guess I'll join. Despite my lateness.

Re: Crystal Gym Leader Tournament (DEADLINE JULY 10TH)
 
It's fine, Mewtwo; I was going to extend the deadline anyway as there weren't enough people.

There are enough now, of course, but I'll leave the registration for this open for another three days (until the end of the 13th) just in case anyone else is up for it.
