    I agree completely with this. Until the system is actually developed, we shouldn't be using it for anything official and final. (We can still use it for official stuff, but not something major like a tournament.)
    The word "quadragonal" is the only word with "dragon" in it where "dragon" is not a root word. That makes it awesome.

    Ok, to keep you up to date.

    I'm waiting for this project to get it's own subforum so we can really hash these things out, but we can plan now.

    I'm aiming for this tournament to fall on the 30th 5:00 PM EST.

    In my opinion and what most likely will be happening is this will be an OU tournament. Banlist will follow.

    any other questions?

    Because we'll have hell with the Ubers after that.

    Although, really, if you're willing to wait a few more months for the system to stabilize, I don't see why we can't have them contribute.

    One question:

    WHY MUST ALL THE TOURNAMENTS BE AT MIDNIGHT?
    /end rage

    no really, why can't the tournament not be a live tournament?`Yeah, that wont get the one off server usage up, but it will increase consistent usage. And it means people who dont live in the USA can play in the tournament.

    lastly, Smogon or PO tiers? I say smogon, and most people agree judging from the vote in my tournament which got over recently.
    If we are having a battle and I disconnect, it is 100% unintentional; my power goes off often and each time my modem resets.

    Gone until Aug, 10 or something for a trip w/out net access. C u after that. If I suddenly dissapear after that you can bet I got bad grades on my IGCSE's, since results are coming out the week afterwards.

    I think I'd actually agree with this. Also, we need a ladder going.

    statistics can't be calculated excluding this tournament? That's why I put it so late in the month.

    To be completely honest with you, I plan most of my tournaments based around my own time zone. I'll look into another format. Smogon tiers.

    They can, but this tournament would probably make up, like, 75% of the usage.

    Sure thing.

    As long as the Bulbagarden PO server isn't up, we can't put this system to the test.
