    Forgot to put this earlier:

    RE: DC from Pomman vs Athena Asamiya

    The match will be redone because I have the chinese team, then fact that the UK player had such a small chance to actually win the match (and a smaller one to not just lose outright from the point of the DC). Since there was a decent bit of luck involved throughout the match it can't be recreated, so a rematch is the best course of action.




    In light of both teams attempting to actually get the match done and the fact that the match will decide a win / tie, I will extend the round by 3 hours for team china and team UK to get their last match finished.

    @Snowy gets the act win over @Gondra, Gondra missed two scheduled times as per this and this post.

    @Mob Barley vs @Rodriblutar is a dead game, both attempted to schedule very late, and it really doesn't matter that much, both capts agreed to it as well.

    Due to a misunderstanding over am / pm, the Spainish and APC player "agreed" to different times; they've rescheduled the match for ~4am EDT (after the deadline) and I'm extending the deadline for 4-5 hours in order for the match to get done.

    The new thread will go up on time.

    Kenzo DC'd vs SunnyORAS pretty late into the game

    Gengar17 has decided to take the win.


    THIS IS WHY YOU SEND IN YOUR TEAMS

    Re: D0nut vs Nightfox

    @theurbandear sorry, i was offline already
    I didn't thorugh donut was going to be online only until 8pm on saturday
    So i went on at like my 9pm but he didn't told me anything on the forums
    I was playing some games on smogontours at that time
    Around 11pm Vileman said he was on discord but he didn't replied to him
    And yesterday i was online since my 1pm but i never saw him on the forums nor smogontours
    I was playing for bw cup at that time
    I should have spoken to you earlier or got his discord but he didn't told me anything either
    I have prooffs i was online at those times on saturday and yesterday, even in this very chat(edited)
    And @Xdevo when i said between 6pm to 3am i meant friday-saturday saturday-sunday
    Since 2 hours from i left yesterday would be monday already lol

    So, this wasn't exemplary scheduling for either player.

    nightfox gave a range of times, d0nut agreed to play at the beginning of that period. Nightfox didn't get on until 9 pm.

    Here's the thing: if you schedule a time range, you should be on for that whole range of time unless you say otherwise or a specific time is scheduled. You can't just 'assume' that someone won't be on for 3 hours.

    I know I'm going to get bitched at because this is deciding a W/T, but that's just how it has to be apparently.

    D0nut gets the win.

    After a bunch of bitching and some more facts were presented: I'll be overturning the d0nut vs nightfox decision.


    Nightfox was apparently checking smogtours and PO throughout the 3 hours that he "missed" Saturday night.

    While this is still pretty shitty, it's at least showing that he was trying to find d0nut throughout the night, and while I find the disappearance of the two LA Capts (including times when nightfox said he'd be online, unless we're changing what weekend means) at the deadline sketchy as hell, nightfox did put effort into finding d0nut during the weekend apparently.


    The game is now a dead game instead of a loss for LA.

    FAJI Dc'd and was unable to reconnect to the battle; Finch and all the east team have decided to take the win via chat spam.


    Please stop playing on servers with no stop timer option if you have shitty internet or at the very least send in your team.


    Lastly, fuck finch.

    Im surprised that this thread is open for the general public so I am going to post here so this gets attention. I am an avid fan of PO's version of SM UU and was browsing through replays.

    Week 2 game Sacri' vs CBU: http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/smogtours-gen7ou-268142

    The team Sacri' is using consists of "Clefable / Victini / Latias / Krookodile / Keldeo-Resolute / Metagross".

    Sacri' has Metagross on his team, and this is banned by PO SM UU rules, as Mega's and their base are tiered together. Thus the win should be given to CBU, because Metagross is OU (try using it on PO sim if you don't believe me). This means the series should be a tie at 6-6 between Greece and France instead of a 7-5 France win

    I think this should be a good example of why replays should be posted; especially in the case of SM UU if you choose to play on the dreaded smogtours.psim.us or even the main servers. I will let the TD's handle this as they see fit, good day and good luck to everyone!

    In response to the above, Sacri's win is turned into a loss, and the week's result is changed.

    re: Trosko vs xtra

    ☆xtra: we can repeat haha
    ☆Troskqwertyu: lets go
    ☆xtra: how
    +Real FV13 ª: GO
    ☆xtra: same team
    ☆xtra: ?
    ☆Troskqwertyu: yes
    ☆xtra: but i haxed u
    ☆xtra: how can u repeat that
    ☆Troskqwertyu: same moves
    ☆Troskqwertyu: if u want


    Trosko actually did send the team in, so he doesn't auto-lose, but that's pretty much irrelevant. Xtra explicitly agreed to a repeat of the match in the log above. Since the "lol I was just joking" excuse is terrible for a myriad of reasons and is obviously never going to be acceptable in any major tour and is a breach of sportsman-like conduct anyway, the rematch and the results from said rematch stand.

    Trosko gets the win.

    I'm sorry to asia pacific for getting fucked because one of their players decided to be a troll, but oh well.
