Banner made by Rioku Tournament hosted by CaralloMan, co-hosted by Fille. Welcome to the biggest Clan War on Pokemon Simulators! The Pokemon Clan World Cup will decide, once for all, which Pokemon clan is the very best. Let's present the Rules and the Format! Format Spoiler The tournament will have a Group Stage + Knockout Rounds format. Best of 9 every week. Group Stage (1st Round) Every group will have 3 or 4 clans (depending on how many sign up). Every clan have to face each other in a random order that will be announced when draws are done. Every win is 3 points. Every defeat is 1 point. When all battles are done, 2 best clans of each group go straight into the knockout rounds. If a points tie happens the Win/Lose average will decide. If the tie persists, the clan that won the battle between they 2 is the winner. Group Stage Draw will use the following format: http://pastebin.com/FsrA08py KnockOut Rounds The clans that end 1st of their groups will face the ones that ended 2nd. This means that 2 Clans that ended 1st in their groups can't face each other in the first knockout round. Also in this round clans from the same group can't face each other. In successive rounds, the winners will randomly face the other winners. Semifinals loosers will face each other to decide which one is the 3rd best clan. The final winner will be the best Pokemon Clan of 2013.

In case of a tie, please rematch. Every battle will be a Bo1. No player can play more than 1 tier in the same week. Every participant can only play for one clan! If more than one clan submits the same player in their roster, then the player will have to decide which clan he will play for. The Leaders and Co-Leaders are responsible for their clans. They have to report the wins, losses and activities. Only will count the Wins/Activities that Leaders or Co-Leaders report. Every result must be confirmed by both sides. Save the logs will be compulsory. If a result isn't clear the logs will be needed. If a needed log isn't saved punishments will be given. (See Punishments) The clans need to sign up with at least 11 players, and a maximum of 33 players. The clans must have at least a Leader and a Co-Leader. 3 More Co-Leaders are allowed if neccesary. (Max. 5 Leaders in total). At least 2 of the leaders have to be registered at PO Forums, but its preferable to all leaders be registered. After signing up, every clan leader will have to PM either CaralloMan or Fille their roster. Changes are allowed until the sign ups close. If a roster isn't sent the clan won't participate. Every round will take a week. Sundays 0:00 GMT is the standard Round Start/Finish time. If it changes it will be noticed clearly and with enough time. Every clan has to sent the Line-Up for that week before the limit time. If Line-Ups are late 3 times punishments will be given. (See punishments) Substitutions are allowed every week if the Lined Up player is inactive. Battles should be done at Pokemon Online Simulator beta Server. If for any reason battles have to be done at Pokemon Showdown! logs of the battles will be required as well and captains MUST have Hosts permission to do that. [/HIDE] Punishments Spoiler If a punishment is given, depending on which round the tournament is, will be the next. In group stage a punishment will mean the lose of 3 points. (If they have 0 points the resulting score will be -3 points) In KnockOut rounds a punishment will mean the lose of a win (If they have no wins the resulting score will be -1). In case of tie a random tier will be chosen as tie breaker. [/HIDE] Important things to consider Spoiler Both Fille and CaralloMan (the hosts) will join with their own clans. To avoid suspicions, every [Hero] and ENM-RD battles or issues will be refereed by a Neutral TourDirector (Weavile) and/or other clan leaders (Ramiel, Grov.). The group stage draws will be streamed live for everybody that is interested at #PCWC channel, 14th September at an hour that will be noticed. Both the hosts would like to thank everybody that have made this possible and offered to help, TDs (Weavile, Dude and Samphire), MewtwoHidden, Grov, Ramiel, Umbreonnn, Chisposo, Colchonero...

With that said, LET'S DECIDE WHICH CLAN IS THE BEST!!! Please only sign up with established clans, creating a clan for the purpose of entering the tournament defeats the purpose of the tournament itself. IMPORTANT!! If a clan signs up with a Banned User (just one is enough), the entire clan will be DQded.
