  3. Explanation: Welcome one and all to the Masters Invitational Finale! All year, PokeMMO's top competitors have battled it out for a place in this tournament for one reason: to show they are the best of the best. I would like to give a very big congratulations to all who have qualified for this event. I feel it is a great honor to be hosting such a tournament. With that being said, let's get into the details.. This will be a Swiss tournament. For an explanation on Swiss tournaments, refer to the to spoiler below: [spoiler]A Swiss tournament tends to pair opponents based on skill level and record. For example - Round 1 A def B C def D Since A and C both won the first round, they would be paired up for the 2nd round Round 2 B def D C def A The winner is then determined by the best record and number of points. An example scoring system would be below. 2 points for a win 0 points for a loss 1 point for draw[/spoiler] Date & Time: Date: Friday, January 17 Time: 6:00 PM EST | 3:00 PM PST | 11:00 PM GMT Location: Silph Co.

  5. Introduction: Hello to the PokeMMO community! With the last update, flat battles were introduced to PokeMMO via Tournament Mode. This feature is great, but it introduces a problem to our beloved Masters tournaments, OU 50s Singles & Doubles. We would like a bit of your input before making any major decisions on the formatting. Our goal is to keep the tournament as close to the meta the invites were won in as possible. The Problem: With the introduction of flat battles, players have felt free to level their level 50 competitive Pokemon, and in turn leaving them to be unavailable for Normal Mode in the tournaments. With this in mind, we believe a change is needed. We have come up with a few ideas and would like your input on them! Possible Solutions: Option A ​Details ​Tournament Mode Tournaments. Tyranitar & Dragonite are banned. Pros ​Keeps the tournaments similar to the old OU 50s meta. Cons ​Players who have grown close to Tyranitar & Dragonite may not use them.​ Option B Details Tournament Mode Tournaments. Tyranitar & Dragonite are banned. All moves not available on Pokemon in the old 50s meta are banned (e.g. Moonlight Umbreon). Pros Keeps the tournaments the same as the old OU 50s meta. Cons Players who have grown close to Tyranitar & Dragonite may not use them. Players who have leveled their OU 50s competitive Pokemon for moves may not use them. Option C ​Details Normal Mode Tournaments. Would be normal OU 50s tournaments. Pros​ Keeps the tournaments the same as the old OU 50s meta. Cons​ Players who have grown close to Tyranitar & Dragonite may not use them. Players who have leveled their OU 50s competitive Pokemon may not use them. Notes & Rules: This is not a vote. This is us gathering information and input from the community before making a fairly large decision. We will not be making any changes to the Masters tournament at large (e.g. mixing 100s and 50s). Feel free to list any other pros/cons that we've missed. They will be added to the OP. This topic will remain open for discussion until January 10th at 6:00 PM EST. All flaming will lead to hidden posts and further punishment if it continues.
  6. Congratulations to DarkDragons for placing 1st and to Gambo for coming in at a close 2nd!
  7. They changed their team name from 'Amanu and the Rejects' to the above. Changing the bracket accordingly.
  8. Well then. In a strange turn of events, Tyranitar and Dragonite are not banned.
  9. EDIT: DISREGARD THIS The people have spoken. In a vote of 11-10, Tyranitar and Dragonite will be banned in this tournament. For banning the Pokemon: SirGaryOak Fredrichnietze BibleThump ItsGray RysPicz LionKing Appelsap JonazDK Fany sfsSkump Londar Against banning the Pokemon: DoubleJJ Jeremke 2GoSu4Ya eggroll Kanzo Tobias22 cristiano761 G0dPower Yangsam EricTheGreat Well, there you have it. See you guys in a few hours.
  10. I agree. Mistakes were made and learned from.
  11. This will be a flat battle tournament. We are going to let you guys decide on whether Tyranitar and Dragonite should be banned since you had no time to prepare for them in this tournament. All level 50 tournaments from here on will include the Pokemon, however. Starting now, you have until 12:00 PM EST (2 hours 47 minutes from this post). Tyranitar and Dragonite will be banned from UU and NU matches no matter what. Discuss. Also, keep in mind all flaming posts and drama will not be considered "votes". Let's keep it clean.
  12. Rules: 1. Two staff members will hide somewhere within Kanto and the Sevii Islands 2. The hiders will post gradually larger screenshots of their location in Global Chat, roughly once per minute. 3. Stand in a square immediately adjacent to the hider and trade them to win the round. 4. There will be 10 rounds, and one possible tiebreaker round should there be a tie. 5. Hider will remain in position until found. When a player finds a hider, they receive 1 point. 6. If after 10 minutes the hider has not been found, the round ends and no one gets the points. 7. At the end of the event, the person with the most points wins the prize. Note: All participants must have access to all of Kanto and the Sevii Islands.

  13. I would like a banner for my profile. Text: "ShinyChansey" Animated? No need Team Name (?): Not needed Image/Render: A Shiny Chansey. Background: Not sure!
  14. We will not be continuing Masters next year since it drags over too much time. However, there will likely be smaller series tournaments. How would you guys feel about a UU Weekend? It would be two 32-man tournaments within the same weekend and of the UU tier. Players may compete in one or both of the events. The winner of the first tournament may not partake in the second tournament. The UU Weekend finals will occur immediately following the second tournament. The overall winner will win a prize with a higher value (not enough to shake the economy too much) than most tournaments. The winner of each individual tournament will receive a smaller prize (likely RP) for winning their tournament. Will likely occur at 2:00 or 3:00 PM EST to give Europeans a chance. This can be built on. Feel free to give feedback and/or ideas. :)
  15. Thank you for giving feedback without insulting. I really appreciate it :). Polls would be a very bad idea since the event is 9 days away, they are exploitable, and they will cause confusion to others. The changes for this month are final, one huge change is enough and people need to prepare. Please keep in mind that this decision was not only based off of a few players wanting NU. When this system for the Team Tournament was introduced (3 metas) doubles was stated to be temporary until NU was more developed. Well, NU has become quite popular and we have plans to bring more light to the tier in the next few months. Also keep in mind this change is not permanent. It is us simply trying something new. I know change isn't the most pleasant thing, but bare with me and maybe this will be fun. I will be making a post in Event Suggestions and Feedback immediately following the event, at which point we will collaboratively decide on the future of the tournament. To those wanting 5 metas, that would be an 80-man tournament and we are not prepared for that. EDIT: Keep in mind I'm not trying to be some big bad guy to ruin your fun. It's simply trying something new. I'm doing what I, and others, believe would be genuinely fun. If it doesn't work out, we have next month. I apologize to those who find this unfair.
  16. I don't recall this, honestly. I may not have been around. None-the-less, I'd like to hear feedback.
  17. As many of you may know, the winners of the 3 Masters tiers will be competing in a 3-man Swiss tournament. How would you guys feel about making the Master of Masters Brawl 2/3? Note: The Masters tournaments for each tier will not be 2/3, only the Master of Masters Brawl. Credits go to XelaKebert for the idea.
  18. Your feedback has been heard. Doubles has been replaced with NU.
  19. Welcome to the Official PokeMMO Team Tournament of December. These are monthly competitive tournaments where teams can text their kill against each other. Players battle as teams (3 at a time).
