    Capture the Gym Badge
    Hosted by Froggy and OkamiBW
    Capture the Gym-Badge

    40 talented players will be split into 8 gyms lead by fearless leaders as they compete in an intense game of Capture the Gym Badge. Defend your territory while overtaking opponents all in this fast-paced knock off of your favorite childhood game, capture the flag. Don't fail your fellow gym members and give up the right to run a gym!

    [​IMG]

    Picking Phase
    There will be 40 sign-ups in total, 8 teams each. Please submit teams of 5 with a leader, 4 players, and the type (from the list of 8) you'd like to use. Types will be approved on a first come first serve basis. Every member of the team must use at least 3 pokemon of that type on their team (at most, 3 can be any type). Gym leaders must make 3 teams for best of 3 matches. All teams must be sent in before the challenge phase starts and cannot be changed after it starts.

    List of types to choose from:
    Grass Bug Normal Electric Poison Ghost Dark Ice


    Challenge Phase
    Each team, or gym, will then be defending their badge, while at the same time attempting to take other gyms badges. Trainers of a gym may challenge another gym; in doing so they must beat each trainer of that gym in a Bo1 set, then the leader in Bo3. When a gym's leader loses they must give up all the badges to the gym that beat them, and they are out of the tournament. Gym leaders may not challenge other gyms, and each trainer may only challenge a gym once a week. You must use the same team for both defending and challenging. In order for a gym to fall, one player must defeat all of the gym's trainers and leaders (does not have to be consecutively).

    Challenging
    In order to challenge, a player must announce "CHALLENGING THE GRASS-GYM" in the thread and then attempt to play all of the trainers, then lastly the leader until the challenger is defeated. If no activity (4 days of no contact) is shown by the not-yet-defeated defending gym members, an activity win will be awarded. A single trainer may challenge 3 gyms concurrently. If a challenger loses against another player, he/she may not challenge that same gym until 7 days has elapsed. If a challenger BEATS a gym trainer, he/she never has to beat that trainer again! However, against a gym leader, the entire best of 3 must be won for the gym leader to fall! To prevent a gym from getting overchallenged, a single gym may only have 10 challengers at one time. In order to make it easier to do challenges, players are encouraged to go to the channel #CTB Tourney.

    Battle Rules
    • Battles should be played under the Wifi OU ruleset.
    • Drizzle, Drought, Snow Warning, Sand Stream are banned.

    Each team is now required to add another member (in order to expand the tournament from 32 to 40). However, in order to challenge a gym leader, only 3 of the 4 players must be defeated by a single challenger. Substitutes must still follow the same rules as a normal player.

    Announcement: Team Submissions

    Due to some confusion, we are extending the deadline for submitting teams from 96 hours to August 22nd. If no activity is shown at that point, then you WILL be subbed out. Teams with inactive players will be able to choose from the list of subs. Subs will then have 3 days, until August 25th.

    Here is the list of who has not submitted their teams yet:

    Yagura, just note that full teams have priority, so if another team comes in and wants Dark, they're welcome to have it if they have all 4 of their players.

    Sorry, Dragon-type would be too overpowered. There are only the 8 types that are listed.

    Edit: Froggy too quick.

    Also, please note...

    Announcement: Expansion to 40 Players
    Each team is now required to add another member (in order to expand the tournament from 32 to 40). However, in order to challenge a gym leader, only 3 of the 4 players must be defeated by a single challenger. Substitutes must still follow the same rules as a normal player.

    You have to have a full team in order to reserve type

    and I already explained that the type selection is final and why so no we are not adding water or fire >.>

    You will need to talk with the people who need extra members or form you own team (only 1 team is left and that is poision) I would suggest the remaining single players group up and pick a captain and make the last team before it fills up (aka: Chromium, Silone, tobyfant and tortwag) since you cant just "join" a team exactly
