Structure

Welcome! This is a double-elimination tournament that is being held for reasons stated in the below spoiler. Don't worry too much about winning or losing. Instead the importance lies in completing your battles. If you don't finish your battles, you may not be allowed in the main event. Use this as a chance to practice! If I feel that this tournament is extending PCL for far too long than it needs to be, I will cut it short. I don't want to put everyone through an unnecessary amount of padding before the main event, so feel free to speak any concerns.

Spoiler:
PCL is PC's largest SM OU battling tournament with a focus on both competition and collaboration. Containing similarities to draft leagues, PCL pits four clans against each other in a round-robin format (Weeks 1-3). After tallying all the clan wins from the weekly rounds, the clans in 2nd and 3rd place face off in the semifinals, deciding who will be the one to take on the 1st place clan in the finals. The entire tournament takes five weeks to complete, not including the preparation that comes prior to it.

Before PCL begins, signups of 12 or 20, on the basis of first come, first serve, are enlisted in an SM OU double-elimination tournament. There are multiple reasons for this: 1) it tells us if you can commit to completing your battles on time, 2) it provides info on your playstyle to help clan heads pick players in the auction, and 3) it gives everyone a chance to practice. Not finishing your battles on time may result in losing your league position to the next signup, but losing your battles will have no effect. The signup tournament is expected to take around 5-6 weeks to complete, depending on the signups.

Each clan has a clan head. In addition to participating, their responsibilities include picking members for their clan, picking subs to replace their clan's inactive members, and overseeing the direction of their clan (e.g. helping their clan members practice). The past clan heads were Choice Specs, Dragon, Nah, and myself. Choice Specs and Nah will be stepping down their position as clan heads, while Dragon and myself will be reprising our positions for Majestic Milotics and Ghosts of Perdition (w/ Aegislash), respectively. After the signup tournament, there will be a snake draft involving the clan heads to determine which clan each participant should be assigned to.

Rules

・Use PC's battle server. You may use Smogon's server if you have a team with Pidgeotite or Steelixite, but our server will allow them soon.
・OU, Ubers, UU, RU, NU, PU, and LC of any generation are allowed for your battle if both you and your opponent agree to it. Avoid formats that aren't on the battle server (e.g. RBY LC). SM OU is the default format to fall back on.
・Double elimination (and only one finals match)
・Best of one (one battle per round)
・Post the replay in this thread.
・No extensions

Scheduling

・You are expected to log on PC at least once every day and respond to your opponent during that time.
・Visitor/profile messages must be used for scheduling.
・When sending the initial message, offer time frames that work for you and preferably mention your time zone. If no times work and all possible options have been exhausted, contact Choice Specs or me immediately.
・Schedule a specific time and date.
・If your opponent isn't there at the scheduled time, try to wait at least ~30 minutes.
・Use this thread to keep me updated on how the scheduling is going.

Also, Pheromosa will remain unbanned for the entirety of this signup tournament if it gets banned. The PCL championship will use the most recent ban list, though.

Don't forget to contact your opponent via VM and schedule a specific time. Everyone has 5 days left to complete their battles, or I'll make activity decisions.

    Confirming. Crit on Rotom doesn't seem to have mattered at first glance. Could be wrong though.

      Here's round two!

      Christos vs Noa
      wolf vs Dragon
      Nah vs 5qwerty
      Decidueye vs Aaron
      Choice Specs gets a bye

      Aurora vs punkysaur
      Chrollo vs Sam1994
      gimmepie vs ShanWow
      esperance vs O'aka XXIII

      Deadline is Saturday, April 15th at 11:59 p.m. EDT.

      I gave an activity win to Aaron/Rabinov because him and O'aka had scheduled the battle and O'aka was unfortunately unable to show up. That tipped it a little in Rabinov's favor, but the issue could've been avoided if either of them had started scheduling the battle sooner.

            RIP the fallen four. Time to eliminate four more, hehe.

            Christos vs Dragon
            Aaron vs Choice Specs
            5qwerty gets a bye

            Noa vs Aurora
            wolf vs Sam1994
            Nah vs ShanWow
            Decidueye vs O'aka XXIII

            Deadline is Saturday, April 22nd at 11:59 p.m. EDT.

            O'aka was given the activity win since esperance didn't show up at the scheduled time.

            ...However, I will no longer give activity wins to players who take longer than 2 days to contact or respond to their opponent.
