    Notable results: I had won Treviso Special Event last year and got top 16 in the Anaheim Open, I already have my invite (307/300).
    Why a manager should draft you: I am always free to help other player and also I want to improve as a player (I've talk with other Italian player and everyone said that playing in the NPA is a positive experience so I want to try this year).
    Also I am Italian and Italy is too strong this year

    Significant time missed: None as far as I'm aware
    Your first VGC format: VGC '12
    Notable results: Top 32 London Internationals. Top 32 UK Nationals 2013, VGC '16 Worlds Qualifier, Runner-up and Top 8 at consecutive Sutton Coldfield Regionals '15 - '16.
    Why a manager should draft you: I manage consistently good results at tournaments with relatively low IRL tournament attendance. I often make a habit of building teams from the ground up, making my own EV spreads and the like. Additionally I demonstrated good results during the NPA prior to this. I also know a lot about the community since I've been around for a good while and have good knowledge inside and outside of the game. Always up for helping others within a group as well!
    I will ask that managers don't draft me if you're not after a community within the group. I will not perform well if there's discrimination, elitism and general bad sportsmanship towards individual players based on performance, location or any other factor. I'll put my all into this, but only if there is a sense of community alongside to make the effort worthwhile :)

    RIP Paint you will be missed

    Significant time missed: -
    Your first VGC format: VGC 16
    Notable results:
    • I had the best GXE (87%) overall on the VGC 17 Showdown Ladder;
    • Won the Milan (Italy) Midseason Showdown in October (more than 48 players there, I think);
    • I didn't register in time for the London International lol.
    Why a manager should draft you: I'm 22 years old and I live in Italy, currently a engineering master degree student. I want to take NPA as an occasion to improve, collaborating in a team. I usually dedicate a lot of time to this game and I always follow the evolution of the metagame. Okay, in real life I have never played in a bigger event than a Midseason, but I'm willing to and I think my online result can be considered something valuable to prove a sort of consistency I have. Also, I'm not famous, so I can be the right cheap bet for your team :).

    Significant time missed: 2016
    Your first VGC format: 2015
    Notable results: T64 NB Major 2015 (undefeated swiss), T16 San Jose, 18th place Vancouver
    Why a manager should draft you: Who else would use Virizion on their team?
    Also, yet to have a bad result in a major tournament. Worst result was 5-3 at Hartford. I might be new to the circuit but I think I've proven I'm not terrible.
    But also you will have to talk me out of using Virizion. Fair warning.
    Update: and apparently I'm in the top 4 of a 65 person BSS tournament (as mgmfa) despite never having played the format before. Maybe that counts for something?

    Significant time missed: If I miss any significant time, you're all missing it too n_n;
    Your first VGC format: 2011
    Notable results: 4x regional wins and all of them were 2014 and earlier. Since 2015: Day 2 2016 US Nats, literally nothing else noteworthy
    Why a manager should draft you: Because I've never played in NPA before!!!
    A should / shouldn't list for any managers who I don't catch before the draft, since I'm in an awkward position by playing: I'm going to likely be very active and can help take a sort of assman-type role on the team, but I'm not worth a 5-digit bid on recent performance means -- I've done very little practice the last two years. I'm also not going to take it easy on ghosting or similar and will call out / rat out my own team if need be, you're not getting my bias by picking me and should consider situations that by drafting me you may put my teammates and our team in if they're more confrontational types. I'm playing because I find VGC18 really fun and want to work with my teammates to continue to learn the format.

    Your first VGC format: 2011. I used timid max speed amoonguss. It was named Jumbo Jet.
    Notable results: Yes
    Why a manager should draft you: Because I'm making a twitter bot that spams the mods until they give all previous NPA champions banners like NPA 6 got. Though tbh I'm good if they just do one for NPA 5.

    Significant time missed: Dec 24- Jan 7. I will be with family and/or on a trip and I do not know if I will have any coverage or internet access during this period.
    Your first VGC format: I started super late in the vgc15 format, went to my first larger then pc event in vgc16
    Notable results: 25th place 2016 STL regs, t64 STL regs 2017 (x-3), t16 Smogon VGC tour 2017, 5th place April 2017 ic, t4 and won a MSS, topped sd vgc ladder for both 17 and 18, and was apart of the NPA Celadon City Gambler's last season, member of the 1st place 2017 LATAM Super League team Asukasa Shadows.
    Why a manager should draft you: I may not have done as well as I wouldve hoped in the NPA last season, but I have improved a ton since then, and look to improve more! I am always open and available for practice and teambuilding, and bring a positive personality to a chatgroup. If you would like to ask me more, please feel free to message me on twitter @pinkysylvie or anytime I am on SD. fav mons draw.png

    Significant time missed: Will definitely be unavailable first weekend of February, most likely will also be unavailable online most of following week due to likely Oceania International attendance.
    Your first VGC format: 2014
    Notable results: 2nd Place Dublin Regional 2016 ; Top 128 UK Nationals 2016 / European International 2017 ; Day 1 Worlds 2016 Competitor.
    Why a manager should draft you:
    Have good track record in previous NPA's and while notable results are thin on ground, much of my wisdom comes from respect in and of the community. I'm not afraid to ask questions on points put forward to me and I will always grace questions posed to me with responses. With these events being team focused, the interaction with others is paramount and even now I still learn loads from playing with others.

    I'm also mad enough to go to multiple events wearing a Superman costume and I have carried Kyriakou in my arms. One day I'll find a rental suit cheap enough to do the Stig.
