    We have decided to invalidate the @lotuspirate's signup since he failed to specify his prominent username on smogon (Earthworm) which caused information asymmetry of his identify among the managers in addition to that he was 1 min late in signing up. Auction will resume in 24h from the time it was paused which is 4:43 PM EDT, Aug 7th.

    Alright, here we go...

    I want every single person reading this to know I'm not making this decision lightly or lazily- I've spent at least a dozen hours in the past week and at least 6 of my last 12 hours looking at absolutely every possible scenario and trying to do whatever is best for my team without screwing over friends or playing dirty (I seriously considered trading my full 8K to Sceptross for a player on his roster of his choice in order to enable him to buy Jimmy Turtwig and, more importantly, deprive Bisharps of the ability to buy Turtwig).

    Ultimately, trying to take into consideration what is fair and best for as many people as possible, this is what we're going to do-

    New Bid- SadisticNarwhal
    Bid- 3K
    Credits Remaining- 5K

    However, we are not going to buy anyone else with the 5K. I know some players are going to take that the wrong way and feel insulted. It'll come off like we'd rather have NO ONE than have you, and it's not like that. We're 4-0, if it ain't broke don't fix it and there IS such thing as too many cooks in the kitchen. Our team environment has been excellent all tour and I don't want to risk disrupting that for any reason. Here's a couple quick explanations as to why we did what we did and hopefully that makes people who don't get picked feel a bit less bad about it.

    @LL Despite our past clashes, my vote was in favor of bringing you in because I know your play ability is worth the 3K and I know you care, but ultimately your reputation caught up with you and despite one or two others on the team advocating for you and voting we bring you in, I had five or six people say hellllllllllll no, and as such I'm not going to piss off my team and bring in a player they don't want to work with. PLEASE try to calm down and stop having behavioral issues and you'll get picked for these things without second thought.

    @Miere You know I've been interested in you. We've talked in two different tours about you being on my team and I was very serious about buying you in the main draft, nevermind mids. However, you suffer from being "guilty by association". You're close friends with Ari Stella, a known ghost slot, and you also hang with known and banned cheaters such as Ict. There is also a great deal of suspicion about your World Cup victory against Fear, with many people believing you were ghosted. I'm not accusing you of anything, but I don't feel comfortable bringing in a potentially shady player who hangs around with a group of DEFINITELY shady players.

    @RyLon @LeoShakur I truly, sincerely appreciate your effort and enthusiasm and messaging me on Discord, clearly motivated and wanting to play. This decision in your case simply comes down to fairness- it's not fair to you to bring you in when you would realistically never play, which is what would happen in this instance. As it is our OU is really good- Welliou and Empo are two of the best players in the world- and we have a high quality sub in Oro E Diamanti who doesn't get to play as much as he deserves, and we simply do not need help in OU. This was not at all personal and I'd be happy to talk with you guys in a future tour and hopefully have an opportunity to work together there, but unfortunately this time it's just not the right time or circumstances. I'm sorry. =/

    And with that, as I'm the only person left with money (Lutra has 1K, which is irrelevant), pending someone wants to trade me one of their subs who I like for my 5K, I believe this midseason auction is over. Best of luck in the rest everyone. :)
