    Pokémon Online Champions League VII
    Hello, and welcome to the seventh edition of Pokemon Online's Pokemon Online Champions League! Here in this thread we are going to post everything related to POCL administrative matters/problems and so on. Here, the hosters (@fsk and myself) will post:​
    • Season Schedule
    • Teams and their Rosters
    • Administrative Decisions
    • Auction Logs
    First and foremost, those are the eight teams:
    Chelsea Chatots, captained by @HSOWA and @Annoying Orange
    Winchester Wobbuffets, captained by @CALLOUS and @PhilosopherKing
    Arsenal Arcanines, captained by @Genesis7 and @Shaka Brah
    Southampton Seakings, captained by @Lutra and @Mr.378
    Milan Bisharps, captained by @Draciel and @Z+V
    IFK Göteborg Gogoat, captained by @Dr. Fomantis Toboggan and @snaga
    Geneva Goodras, captained by @z0mOG and @drud
    Stuttgart Stoutlands, captained by @La.Melle2402 and @Hassin627

    As everyone is aware by know, first those eight teams will battle in a Round Robin tournament and they will be awarded the following points:
    • Win = 2 points;
    • Tie = 1 point;
    • Loss = 0 points.
    When all seven weeks are finished, the four teams with most points will face each other in semifinals. If there is a need of a tiebreaker, the overall W/L ratio and direct confront shall be used (in this order) - if both are tied, a tiebreaker will be held with the format of SM OU / Tier picked by Team A / Tier picked by Team B.

    ---

    To sign up, you're required to personally post the following format in the sign-ups thread at http://pokemon-online.eu/threads/36501/
    Code (text):
    1.  
    2. [b]Nickname[/b] (please include Smogon ones as well):
    3. [b]Timezone[/b]:
    4. [b]Tiers[/b]:
    5. [b]Inactivity[/b] (optional):
    6.  
    Pokemon Online Champions League will feature nine tiers, and every team will have ten players in its titular team. The tiers/spots are as follow:
    • 1 RBY OU;
    • 1 GSC OU;
    • 1 ADV OU;
    • 1 DPP OU;
    • 1 BW OU;
    • 1 ORAS OU;
    • 2 SM OU;
    • 1 SM Ubers;
    • 1 SM LC.

    We expect you only to choose a tier if you have experience playing it. If you think you might miss some week(s) of the tournament, please fill up "Inactivity" with details so the managers can be aware of the fact - this is really important!
    After signing up, we encourage you to get in contact with the team's captains via Discord, where they will handle tryouts for their team's spots. Discord activity is really important, and if you're absent from that platform they might not pick you fearing activity concerns! Remember that this is a team tour. Thus you're expected to get in contact with your team on a daily basis.

    ---

    After signups have been completed, there will be an auction hosted in Pokémon Online server (a channel will be announced alongside the date on this thread, so don't worry) where the captains will pick their players for the tournament. The eight teams will have 120K to spend on, at very least, twelve players for this tournament, with the minimum bid for a player remaining 3K. Captains are strictly not allowed to play in the tournament itself, but Assmans can play if they are bought and assigned after the auction - otherwise, they may not play.

    ---

    The official schedule will be announced when Auction is held, but you may already know that it's going to take, at very least, ten weeks. Retentions will not be allowed for this edition of POCL, and all Captains have previously agreed with that.

    ---

    This thread will be locked and any further news will be posted separately.

    We have a bunch of announcements here:

    1) Auction Time is decided to be August 19th, 9AM EDT (GMT-4) on the PO main serve. The Channel it happens will be announced soon.
    2) There is a Midseason sign-ups and auction, tentatively after the fourth week.
    3) @Mazar and @GOAO dropped out of the tournament due to busy schedule, and @La.Melle2402 and @Hassin627 have replaced them in the tournament. (As a result, Melle and Hassin cannot play for the tour themselves.)

    Several other reminders:

    1) Managers please send Line-ups on time, and send to both @Mr. Perry and @fsk just in case. Late roster may result in using the line-ups the week before, or randomized if it is week 1.

    2) Players should upload replay and save the link, if playing on PS. (Save logs on PO.) Post it in the thread of each week, or the manager will be asked to provide the replay link. A game without a PS replay link / PO log is not valid.

    3) Even though it is stated in the Universal Official Tournament Rules, I would like to emphasize that players should all send in their team before playing, to either @Mr. Perry or @fsk through Forum PM. Use https://cryptobin.co/ is highly recommended as it ensures no chance at impropriety. Always remember, if you DCed and you didn't send in tour team while your opponent does, you would lose without condition.

    Re: @bomber vs. @Sapphire Saffron

    Sapphire Saffron timed out after the twentieth turn of their battle against Bomber. As their time had been slowly going down throughout the match, I assume it was a connection issue.
    Nonetheless, neither play sent me their teams beforehand - that means none were safe from an auto-loss in case such as this. Thus the win is conferred upon Bomber and Stuttgart Stoutlands.
    To avoid problems such as that, I strongly suggest teams captains to bug their players to send either me or fsk their teams before they play either through forums or discord.

    Thank you and have a good day.

    Re: @MetalGross vs @beiyingtest

    In the RBY BO3 series between MetalGross and beiyingtest, neither player save the replays. Despite that we have decided the series remain valid, please pay attention to the following:

    As explicitly stated in the post above, and the OP of week 1:
    After discussion among the TD and hosts, we decided that this series will be the last one that is not forced into a rematch when replay/log is absent. Any result after this post without a working PS replay / PO Log will be forced into a rematch.

    Re: @Yes. VS. @Eden's Embrace

    Yes's timer had been slowly going down throughout his match against Eden's Embrace, and it eventually timed out in the 21st turn of their match (replay: http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen3ou-623344076). It was a connection issue and Yes sent me the team, meaning he was secured against such a problem - however, his opponent didn't. In cases such as this, the precedent is a rematch with different teams - however, both players agreed and contacted me stating their wishes for a rematch with same teams/moves, and I have agreed.
    This decision shouldn't be used as a future precedent, though.

    Re: @porygon2 vs @theurbandear

    In the SM OU game between p2 and urban, p2 timed out at turn 37. The timer slowly went down starting turn 31 and went down to 0 in the end; therefore the match is assumed to be a normal time out loss for p2. So the win goes to theurbandear and the Seakings.

    Regarding time outs, what we can tell you is that if you disconnect with more than 120s left, it will be ruled as a DC. When your timer slowly goes down to 0, or you disconnect with very little time left, it is assumed to be a true time out loss and there will not be any rematch. A timeout is a loss; but if your case is ruled as a DC, whether you get a redo will depend on whether you submitted your team beforehand.

    Nonetheless,
    Using Cryptobin is recommended.

    Re: Dugtrio

    Dugtrio has been banned from SM OU by the OUTL Finchinator, and is now banned from the following weeks of POCL. As the ban was concluded before the round was posted, it's already in effect for Week 2.

    Announcements regarding the Mid-Season:
    1)There will be a Mid-season Signups thread open around Sat, Sep. 9th and will be closed together with Round 4 Deadline.

    2)There will be a Mid-season Auction in the form of a forum thread (similar to the year before), with the auction starting Monday, Sep. 18th.
    The Managers can use the remaining budget to bid for players who signed up in midseason. Managers can also trade or sell back players (and therefore increase budgets) before the Mid-Season Auction end.

    3) During Mid-season Auction only: as long as there is more than enough sign-ups for midseason, you can sell back / trade with less than 12 players on your team after a trade, as long as (your remaining money divided by 3k) ≥ (12 - your number of players). Note that this is the case when we get enough sign-ups since that is the only pool you can pick from for midseason auction.

    4) When the midseason auction is undergoing, we will have an All-Start week, featuring the two players in each tier with the best record for the first four weeks facing each other. In case of two players with the same win-loss record, we will sum up the win-loss record of the opponent they lost to, and the one with a stronger opponent win-loss record will be picked.

    Week 2 Activity
    Re: @Elodin vs @49.

    Elodin left a VM on 49.'s wall on Monday of week 2, and received no reply. While 49. forgot his PW to PO forum, he attempted to schedule with Elodin on Friday through Smogon forum. Elodin replied that day stating that he has limited availability on Sunday: either before he goes to the party, or after the party(not known yet). The next day, Elodin approaches 49. stating that he is available on Sunday 9am through 1pm his time, while 49. agreed to make that time. On Sunday, 49. missed scheduled time, and Elodin called act. Around an hour before the deadline, the Bisharps made a Sub, but it was at a time Elodin marked as possible but "not known yet."

    Because 49 missed a time agreed upon by both parties, Elodin holds activity advantage. This, combined with 49.' lack of response during the weekdays, has been judged to outweigh any haziness of Elodin's declared Sunday afternoon - night absence. The sub Bisharps made could be effective if it was made before Elodin left in his said time window (9 am - 1 pm) but that didn't happen. Therefore, we award act win to Elodin and the Seakings.

    One extra reminder: If any of the players had problems logging onto the forum, the Managers should set up proxy contact as early as possible during the week to avoid activity disadvantage. Inability to log onto the forum cannot be used as an excuse for non-reponsiveness or late schedule.

    Week 2 Activity
    Re: @boudouche VS. @Klefkwi
    Klefkwi left a message on boudouche's VM Wall, didn't get a reply but later they started all scheduling on discord. According to the discord dialogs, Klefkwi's claim of an act is deemed groundless. Both players tried to get the game done, but they did not catch each other. Therefore, this is a dead game.

    Players should actively propose a concrete time of playing instead of depending on random trials of catching each other without a said time window. To avoid your scheduling effort rendered useless or ruled as a dead game, schedule with solid and concrete time windows, preferably on Forums. Even if the schedule happens on discord, it is preferred that you post a screenshot showing the scheduled time on Forum VM when you reached the agreement.

    In addition, @Klefkwi should also be publicly ashamed for doing groundless act calling and trying to fish for an act win through loopholes of rules.

    ---
    Week 3 Activity
    Re: @Hurricane VS. @holy break
    As discussed on Holy break's VM Wall, the two players have the opposite available time window: one is not available at all during the weekdays while the other is not available at all during the weekend. Therefore, a forced double substitution will be made eventually, if neither of the two players can accommodate the other's schedule in further contact. It is only Monday right now and they will have some more time to try to accommodate each other before the sub is made.

    Edit: It is clear that @Hurricane and @holy break spent hours today to argue activity instead of playing. The appropriate subbing enforcement will be decided upon further investigation.

    Edit 2: They scheduled a time.

    Re: @TraceofLife sell-back.

    Both @HSOWA and @TraceofLife contacted the host about a sell-back case. Trace told HSOWA that he didn't like certain members of the team, and therefore lost all the motivation to play. As such, a sell-back is allowed here, and the Chelsea Chatots gains 3k credit for Midseason Auction.

    Also,
    This issue wasn't solved by a trade between teams, so a sell-back happened. The hosts will place a due amount of punishment to the player who refused to play with a reason as such, after further discussion and investigation.

    Re: @Isza's sellback.

    @Genesis7 has contacted both me and @fsk regarding Isza's inactivity - he claims (and I can confirm as I'm in the team chat) Isza has never joined the team discord, has blocked Discord PMs and thus there's no way to contact him, as Isza is also banned on Smogon forums. Following the same steps as the above post, Arsenal Arcanines gains 3k credit for Midseason Auction.

    We will be looking into those cases and a decision about a possible punishment should be posted here soon.

    RE: @Gene Sp VS. @Wheitron

    Gene Sp brought a Dugtrio to his match versus Wheitron, which defaults to a loss as said Pokémon is banned in SM OU (for more info: https://goo.gl/zWPtg6). However, Wheitron agreed on a rematch - and so we decided to allow it.
    Keep in mind that if you bring a banned Pokémon the match will be automatically forfeited and it will be up to your opponent accept a rematch or not - @Captains please ask your players to read up the document about the differences between PO and PS tiers to avoid problems like that one.

    RE: @DAVIDpwns VS. @confide

    I will make this quick as CALLOUS' post sums everything pretty well and we've already reached a conclusion about it.
    Confide and majaspic22 had scheduled their game to Saturday, as it can be seen on confide's post on majas's profile, but majas missed said time. Both players had agreed on 10 PM GMT -6 on Sunday, but confide actually couldn't get home until midnight~1am GMT -6 - and wouldn't be in conditions to play said match. The hosts and the captains of said players agreed that we couldn't decide a winner based on these occasions, and the game was considered dead.

    @Captains
    Based on the feedback of the managers, we'd like to revision the rule on replay validating matches to the following:

    1) When both teams have no disagreement on which team won a certain game, we won't really force you to post replays. (It would be nice for lesser known/ less experienced players to learn from the replays, so you are still encouraged to post them.)

    2) When there is a disagreement on the game result, we will need replay (on PS) or full log (on PO) to validate the result. The team that lied about the result will be punished. Verbal claiming of witnessing is not sufficient.

    This is in effect starting week 4.

    Re: @JayStaice's and @silverghost's Sell-back

    @Dr. Fomantis Toboggan has contacted the hosts stating his wish to sell-back the above players on grounds of "terrible activity and lack of answers to their team members' contact". After reviewing logs of IFK Göteborg Gogoat's discord server, I was able to confirm that both had been rather remiss in these 3 weeks of tournaments, with both last seen around the start of Week 1. Thus, we have decided to allow IFK Göteborg Gogoat to sell-back those players and get 3k credit for each player to be used in Midseason auction.

    ----

    Re: @linek's Sell-back.

    @CALLOUS has contacted us as well, but his case was a bit trickier and thus we took some time to think if we were agreeing or not to it. CALLOUS claimed that Linek had been, in his own words, "[...] completely inactive and not motivated [...]" to play for Winchester Wobbuffets. After looking through their team logs, I was able to see that even though Linek had not been as inactive as all prior sell-backs until now, he had very little contact with their team members - with 2 messages on 09/04, one on 09/01, and then 4 lines all occurring shortly after Week 1 pairings were posted by me - and thus I have, with the help of some insight from a Smogon TD, that this is indeed a sell-back case. Thus, Winchester Wobbuffets gets 3k credit to use on Midseason auction.

    -----

    I would like to remind the @Captains that if they are with less than 12 members because of sell-backs, they are forced to buy at very least enough players to hit that milestone after mid-season is finished.

    And that's all folks! :mimikyu:

    Re: @Fille's Sellback
    Fille has contacted the hosts stating that he will be very busy in real life and won't have enough time to commit to the tournament, and therefore allowing the Stoutlands to sell him back. The Stoutlands will have 3k credit added to their midseason auction budget.

    Re: @49.'s Sellback
    @Draciel has contacted the hosts stating that 49. was inactive. This is reflected by his activity loss against the Seakings (and never played afterwards) and further proved in team discord chat. Therefore, the Bisharps will have 3k credit added to their midseason auction budget for selling him back.

    The midseason auction thread will be up at the deadline of week 4.

    RE: @Dice VS. @Zokuru

    Neither player tried to contact their opponents this week through Pokemon Online or Smogon VMs - and as the captains made no claims of any contact between those players on other methods, we have decided that the game is dead.

    RE: @beiyingtest VS. @Jellicent

    Even though they were from very opposite time ranges, both players actually tried to get their match done through Pokemon Online VMs. beiyingtest ha dsuggested that they play Saturday around 9 or 10PM GMT -4, but Jellicent didn't confirm anywhere that said time was ok - but even then, she missed that time. Well, considering said message was Thursday and Jellicent only answered on Saturday after that time beiying suggested claiming they had messed timezones, we must warn the players that we expect that both of you get a consensus for a time, to make things easier and not spookier later.
    Well, Jellicent still tried to get the match done today but beiyingtest has not been present anywhere so the match couldn't be completed. As forcing a sub from the Goodras wouldn't be fair, as beiying did try to get the match done, but the same couldn't be asked for the Bisharps as Jellicent did try to schedule another time for the match, the hosters decided that this game is also dead.

    RE: @hot sexy available (mazar) VS. ZoroDark

    Mazar was subbed out by HSA on Friday by Goodras' manager z0mog, but he actually ended up playing his match versus ZoroDark nonetheless as he was unaware of said substitution. While we have decided to allow the result of said pairing to stay this round (ZoroDark's win) since HSA went inactive and the game is played with both players not knowing the substitution, this situation should be avoided in the future and this should not be taken as a precedent. Hence, we ask team @Captains to tag the player you are subbing out, the player you're subbing in, the opposing player and their captain so that this doesn't happen again.

    Thanks!

    A Newly Established Rule
    @Captains

    Re: Wobbuffets vs Seekings
    To prevent further drama of similar kind, here is a new rule regarding "unavailability after the scheduled time."

    If a player is to be absent after meeting a scheduled time (and opponent no show) and will be unavailable for the remainder of the week [esp. when the scheduled time of the game is a weekday and the player is not available on the weekend] the manager/player will be required to give the hosts and the opposing team a notification of such absence prior to the match time with a reasonable amount of time, so that the opposing team can be ready beforehand to find a backup plan at the given time.

    With this notification of unavailability, the team with the missing player is required to find a substitute upon the missing status of their player is confirmed. If they do not make a substitution within a reasonable amount of time after the scheduled time of the game, they will lose by activity.

    However, if there is no said notification of such absence prior with a reasonable amount of time of the scheduled game to the opposing team, and opposing player missed the time while is available to play afterwards (or a sub is made), the game will not be an act win for the team with the player showing up on time due to no prior notice of unavailability.

    The POCL hosts and the TD(s) reserve all the rights for final explanation. Do not try to exploit loopholes in this act ruling or others, else do expect due punishment.

    This new rule takes effect in week 7.

    RE: Activity rullings from Week 7.

    @vesper VS. @MetaMence
    MetaMence asked to be subbed out, but HSOWA failed to find a proper sub. vesper and the Seakings get the act win.

    @theurbandear VS. @Wheitron
    Players scheduled to Saturday at 7PM -3 (which is now -2 because of DST) but Wheitron missed the time. They tried to get the match done Sunday, but ultimately failed to play their match. As Wheitron was the one at fault firsthand, and theurnandear tried his best to get the match done, the act win goes to latter and the Seakings.

    @Valentine VS. @Rokhan
    Rokhan asked to be subbed out, but HSOWA failed to find a proper sub. Valentine and the Seakings get the act win.

    @Mazar VS. @Mysterious M
    No reply from Mazar to Mysterious M's VM. Act win for Mysterious M and the Gogoats.

    @ez VS. @TSR
    No contact was made between the two players either on PO or Smogon. The game is dead.

    @laxX VS. @fitzy
    No reply from laxX to fitzy's VM. Act win for fitzy and the Gogoats.

    @teal6 VS. @The Real Elmo
    No reply from teal6 to The Real Elmo's VM. Act win for The Real Elmo and the Gogoats.

    @Dice VS. @Yes.
    No reply from Dice to Yes' VM. Act win for Yes and the Gogoats.

    @beiyingtest VS. @Alexander.
    No contact was made between the two players either on PO or Smogon. The game is dead.

    @Kingler12345 VS. @M Dragon
    M Dragon claimed he had scheduled with Kingler12345 to play Sunday through discord, but ultimately no logs of such contact was shown to the hosts (nor posted in their team chat for me to check). Considering no official contact was made between the two players either on PO or Smogon and that the game doesn't really change anything we are making the game dead. I was given proof that M Dragon and Kingler12345 did schedule for Sunday through Discord and the latter slept through it - this means the activity wins goes to M Dragon and the Winchester Wobbuffets.
