    Hello Everyone! Back again, once again for another TrainerTower Scramble!, but this time it’s for the Summer! 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!

    Signups
    To sign up for this tournament, just post in this thread! Signups will run until Tuesday the 16th of July. THE THREAD WILL BE LOCKED AT 11:59pm GMT-0 MONDAY NIGHT

    Please do know that I will be capping registration at 180 Participants, as to save effort on making and editing the spreadsheet.

    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
    +.5 Point for each win the opponents you won against has

    Tie breakers will be head to head record, and then # of Set wins as a secondary breaker.

    Rules for the Summer 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 myself in a Trainer Tower DM.

    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. I will be taking donations for the prizepool again this time. Please DM me if you are interested in contributing!

    The full prize distribution will be announced at the end of sign ups!
