[Announcement] Smogon's official laddering tournament!

Post by Zkillerthriller on Thu Oct 02, 2014 5:21 pm

So with the newly added Pokemon section, I figured I'd post a pokemon related topic. So, here we go! Very Happy

Ok, I doubt you've heard about this. But Smogon is gonna make a tournament. A ladder tournament. An official laddering tournament! But just how do you qualify to it? Well, you see: You sign-up on a dedicated sign-up thread on Smogon. You sign-up using your Smogon account, as well as 3 different alts containing "LT", "The number of the Cycle you're signing up to" (I'll get to what a Cycle is shortly), And then a "name that is a very similar variation/abbreviation to your Smogon account's name. (The max amount of alts allowed per Cycle is 3).

This is what my sign-up looked like!
Forum name: Zkillerthriller
Cycle 4 alts: LT4A ZkillerT, LT4B ZkillerT, LT4C ZkillerT
Do my alts for Cycle 4 contain a very similar variation/abbreviation of my forum name as it is required by the rules? Yes. 

Now, moving on to how the qualification works! - It is divided into 8 Cycles that each lasts 8 days. Which is 64 days. About 2 months to put in perspective. At the end of each 8-day cycle, the ones that are in the top 8 on the ladder (among those who're signed up), get qualified to the real deal! The tournament itself! Which is a 64 man, best of 3, double elimination tournament!

The tournament is currently in its 4th Cycle of 8. For more info you can visit Smogon at:  http://www.smogon.com/forums/threads/introducing-the-official-ladder-tournament.3516483/#post-5706369

There is also a chatroom completely dedicated to it on Pokemon Showdown! - http://play.pokemonshowdown.com/ - Simply called "OLT".

Thank you so much if you took the time to read through all of this! I do realize you may not care, but I really wanted to share this in case you're interested!
Anyways, I'm done.

Peace! :DD
