— What is a Community Day?
Community Day is a get-together held on the PC Battle Server all day. Tournaments are a mainstay on Community Day, while other activities such as iSketch, Cards Against Humanity, Mafia, Diplomacy, and the like can be hosted during Community Day as well. Community Day is simply about enjoying time with others while the server is at its peak of activity.
— When is the upcoming Community Day?
Community Day starts at 8 AM (UTC -4 / EDT) on Saturday, May 3rd and ends at midnight. That is 8 AM in eastern USA, 5 AM in western USA, 1 PM in the UK, 8 PM in Western Australia, and 10 PM in eastern Australia. Just so you know, you don't need to be there at the launch. Community Day lasts all day so that everyone can participate regardless of their time zone.
— How do I sign up?
No sign-up is required. All you have to do is show up on the PC Battle Server during the times we have listed in this thread. You may want to prepare teams for each tournament you plan on joining, though. The tournament themes will be listed in this thread for that reason. Additionally, if you were online during this Community Day, you will receive the bronze emblem below. You can also get the silver or gold emblems if you've already participated in one or two Community Days, respectively.
— What are the tournament formats and schedule?
Follow BC's General Battle Rules. The banlists for the tournament formats below can be found here. All tournaments are "Best of One" (participants battle each other once to determine a match-up) unless stated otherwise. Don't know what tiers are or need usage statistics? Use our Guides & Resources.
PC Battle Server formats
1. Random (randomly generated teams)
2. OU (moveset analyses (1 / 2) and banlist)
3. Metronome Random (randomly generated teams)
5. 1v1 Random (randomly generated teams)
7. LC Random (randomly generated teams)
8. Community Random (randomly generated teams)
There will not be any Wi-Fi tournaments unless a notable amount of people have shown interest in having them.
We will go from the first theme listed and make our way down. The Wi-Fi tournaments will most likely run at the same time as the server tournaments. The orders may change during Community Day. There is also a chance that we'll use other themes if there's a demand for them.
