    Place your bets, trainers, because we're in for another brand new event!

    Are you tired of dying to overpowered NPCs? Well, then this is the event for you, because in this event, the NPCs are the ones being trolled by each other!

    How to Play
    To participate in this event, all you have to do is buy Lucky Coins and bet on the trainer you think is going to win. Every time that trainer wins for the duration of the tournament, you receive 40% of the Lucky Coins you've placed on them thus far in return. This tournament is double-elimination, so even if your trainer of choice loses one match, they will have to lose another match in the loser's bracket before being eliminated completely.

    At the end of the event, the winners will be decided based on how many Lucky Coins they earned from bets.

    1st place: $250,000 + Philosopher's Stone + 5 Mega Stones
    2nd place: $100,000 + 2 Mega Stones
    3rd place: $25,000 + Water Balloon

    How to Buy Lucky Coins
    Type /buylucky to get started with your first 300 coins (costing $1000 total). You will be able to buy extra coins after the fact, but at a higher cost: $5000 per 10 coins, up to 400 coins. How much extra you want to buy depends entirely on your faith in your own ability to gamble!

    Gamble on the trainer you think will win with /betnpc [trainer]:[amount]. You can only bet up to 200 Lucky Coins on any single trainer for the first round, so think about multiple trainers you would like to invest in!

    The Bracket

    [​IMG]

    May the odds be ever in your favor!

    Round 1 begins 8/18 00:01 GMT.

    In the event of a tie between the top 3 earners, I will facilitate a run-off match for the players to bet once again on.

    Welcome to Upset City, population: everyone. A stabless Volkner shot down Winona's bird Pokémon, and the Steel brigade held strong against Fighting types. In the loser's bracket, we said goodbye to 3 of our top contenders for winning the tournament and Koga. Sorry, Koga.

    Jasmine defeated Chuck in a battle!
    Volkner defeated Winona in a battle!


    Roark defeated Sabrina in a battle!
    Candice defeated Koga in a battle!
    Flannery defeated Clair in a battle!
    Fantina defeated Wallace in a battle!

    [​IMG]

    Now, let's see who benefitted off of these upsets the most:
    (23:33:08) ±Tauros: murtaza: 422
    (23:33:08) ±Tauros: lord neptune: 394
    (23:33:08) ±Tauros: miki sayaka: 388
    (23:33:08) ±Tauros: raen: 388
    (23:33:08) ±Tauros: python: 360
    (23:33:08) ±Tauros: azumarill: 344
    (23:33:08) ±Tauros: petit dragon: 308
    (23:33:08) ±Tauros: zack fair: 296
    (23:33:08) ±Tauros: khaloss: 220
    (23:33:08) ±Tauros: [moxie]mads: 208
    (23:33:08) ±Tauros: sasuke: 208
    (23:33:08) ±Tauros: wolf: 200
    (23:33:08) ±Tauros: lancer of despair: 180
    (23:33:08) ±Tauros: shenny: 120
    (23:33:08) ±Tauros: m. bakhsh: 80
    (23:33:08) ±Tauros: rodgerthat: 40

    We have our final 8 trainers in the tournament. The bet cap has been increased to 300. Also please note: the Winner's Finals match (Jasmine vs Volkner) will not commence next round. It will be played the round after next, along with Chuck and Winona's matches. That means the only matches next round are Roark vs Candice and Flannery vs Fantina.

    Next round in 2 days. Place your bets!
