    Hello Everyone! Back again, once again for another TrainerTower Scramble!, but this time it’s for the Spring! The idea of this is for a very large amount of games in a small amount of time. This is a pure practice tournament during the Pools stage, so feel free to bring whatever tickles your fancy!

    To sign up for this tournament, just post in this thread! Signups will run until Monday the 25th of March. THE THREAD WILL BE LOCKED AT 11:59pm GMT-0 MONDAY NIGHT

    Tournament Explanation

    We’re going to do a Round Robin stage X person pools, and taking the top Y players from each group and putting them into a single elimination top cut bracket. Once you have been placed into your pools, you will have TWO WEEKS to complete as many matches as possible. The X amount of players will be based on how many sign up. The Y amount of players depends on the same variable.

    Points:
    You will need to be within the Top X of your pool in order to play in the Top Cut.

    You will earn 10 Points for each win
    You will lose 7 Points for each loss

    Bonuses:
    Bonuses will be granted at the end of the Pools stage
    +1 Point for each win the opponents you won against has

    Tie Breakers will be based on the individual score of each set.as well as the players overall record.

    Rules for the Spring Scramble!

    Normal VGC Rules will be applied. This format will be played in Ultra Series of the 2019 VGC format.

    This is to be played on PS, unless there is mutual agreement to play on Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon cartridge

    All matches will be Best of Three

    If a player requests you open all 3 games at once while playing on Showdown!, you are required to. If your opponent refuses, DM me and I will enforce this rule as I seem necessary

    There will be no Team Lock until the Top Cut. When that begins, you will be using Cryptobin to submit teams to a 3rd party not involved with this specific tour.
    (EDIT: As the decision that I will not be playing in the tournament, I will be collecting the Cryptobins along with passwords for the Top Cut team lock)

    Any sort of disconnection issues when playing on cart will be handled on a case by case basis.

    I will be abiding by Trainer Tower's posted ghosting policy and punishments will be handed out as I deem fit.

    If you are found to be inactive or unwilling to play games against other competitors, you will be removed from the tournament and replaced with another willing participant.

    Prizes:
    Prizes will be some form of monetary compensation. Will be decided based on interest and how many people sign up.

    Huge thank you to FeintGWP for his incredibly generous offer to DOUBLE whatever money I put up for the Scramble! Prize Pool. The full prize distribution will be announced at the end of sign ups!
