Welcome all to the wonderful tournament that is the Fourth of July Pokemon Online Tournament. To celebrate yet another year of the Declaration of Independence for the United States, I will be hosting this wonderful tournament that will take place during the day of July 4th. The time period may change in the future to accomodate the playstyle that I plan to run this tournament by, so be on the lookout for announcements about the time period for this tournament. So in order to celebrate, this tournament will function off of points gain from winning battles, and losing point for losing battles (see more detailed explanation in the rules section). Participants are able to challenge each other in order to acquire these points, and whoever has the most at the end of the time period will be crowned winner. There are no prizes at the moment, because Wifi Pokemon are next to useless for most Pokemon Online players, and emblems are up to the discretion of moderators and higher staff members (of which I am neither). So if you want prizes, bug Wolflare. :3

The tournament will take place on: Monday July 4th beginning at 12:00AM Eastern Standard Time (-5:00) and ending at 11:59PM Eastern Standard Time (-5:00).

You do not have to be from the United States to participate in this tournament. I know those of you from Britain may find it ironic to participate, but it'll be fun nonetheless. :] The only issue that might arise is finding matches with those of us from the US. Also, if you participated in the Competitive Battling Tutor Class, this is a great way to continue working your way into the Competitive Battling Center's social group. We're a friendly bunch and would love to see participation grow!

Good luck everyone!


First Place: Kevin Garret
Second Place: Vrai

Rules
★ We use Smogon's Ban List
★ All PokeCommunity rules and PokeCommunity Pokemon Online Server rules apply
★ Battles must be held on the official PokeCommunity Pokemon Online server, which can be accessed by typing home.brokenrevolution.com into the box at the bottom and hitting Advanced Connection
★ Challengers must agree on a tier and generation in which to battle, as well as clauses that will be in action
★ Winning a battle will earn you 1 point
★ Losing a battle will cause your overall score to drop by 1 point
★ Losing more than 2 times in a row will prevent your score from degrading any further, and the score cannot go negative
★ If a challenge is refused, the person who refused the challenge loses 1 point
☆ If you are idle, you can safely refuse challenges without your score being compromised
☆ If you have already battled the same person three times, you will not lose points for refusing challenges from said person
☆ If the two challengers cannot agree on a tier/generation, the battle will be ignored and refusing a challenge on this basis is safe
Do not abuse any of these exceptions
★ When reporting scores, make a win/loss list in your sign-up post by editing, as demonstrated in this post
★ Maintain the order in which you battled for your record keeping, as the order of the battling does matter
★ Save logs of ALL battles in case the need for them arises. If neither party has a log and conflict rises, the scores will not be counted and both sides will be penalized with a subtraction of 1 point

                      Alright guys, thanks everyone for signing up. A little reiteration of the rules and how this will go down:

                      When reporting battles, I've decided with a suggestion by Katastrophe to require you all to edit your sign up posts by including a "record" section. In this section, include the battles you've had with your opponent in a vs. style matchup. Make sure that these battles appear in ORDER. I will be watching to make sure you all report them in the order they happen, because it makes a difference.

                      To report your battles, make a list, such as this:
                      .Aero vs. Wolflare
                      .Aero vs. Vrai
                      etc.

                      Where the bolded name is the winner. I would have gained one point from winning against wolf, then lost a point for losing to Vrai, leaving me with 0 points. If I had reversed that order, I would have one point since I would lose to Vrai with 0 points, and I cannot go negative, then would have won against wolf providing me with 1 point. The order matters. So keep your records to keep the scoring clean and fair. I'm also considering extending the tournament to accommodate for our non-USA friends. The tour might continue onto the 5th. I'll see how the tournament goes. :] So keep an eye on this post for an announcement, since double posting is against the rules (unless I gain an exception from the mods). Anyway, if I see enough participation, it will be extended. I'm also considering a final mini-tour with the top 4 point gatherers, much like the tournaments wolf has run like this. If you're interested in this idea, let me know on PO. With that, let the tournament begin!

                      Alright, due to popular demand, the tournament is going to be extended another day. It will go until 11:59 PM EST on the 5th. After that, on the 6th, a minitournament will be held for the top 4 point gatherers. This will determine who comes in first, second, third, and who is the magical 4th of July place.

                        Now that PC is working and I'm not tired as ****, I've updated the first post with scores according to the records kept in your posts. Thanks to most of you for battling! It was a fun tournament, although I wish the second day saw the same amount of activity as the first. ^o^

                        The top 4
                        Kevin Garret - 8 points
                        Vrai - 7 points
                        Dragon Omega - 7 points
                        Spinosaurus - 4 points


                        Using a random tour bracket generator, the bracket is:

                        Kevin Garret vs. Dragon Omega
                        Vrai vs. Spinosaurus

                        Finals:
                        For First:
                        Kevin Garret vs. Vrai

                        For Third:
                        Dragon Omega vs. Spino

                        Try and get these battles done today so that we can move on to the final and declare the winner!
