[Doubles] Cave of Origin Invitational

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Welcome to the first Cave of Origin Invitational.

57-1f.jpg

 

 

The end of the Doubles meta as we know is closeTM.

 

In an effort to spice up the doubles scene and step up the game, I'll be releasing this invitational tournament, to give invested ones an one last chance to compete in a high caliber environment prior to the Sinnoh meta shift. 

 

The initial bracket will consist of 32 invitees drawn from the strongest and most genuine players that will clash in a Swiss Format qualifier, then face in a best of three Top Cut to take the crown home.

 

Invitees will be revealed in spans of 12 to 24 hours from this post's release in groups of 8. Each invitee will be provided with a week to accept or deny its participation. Confirmation of assistance can be done in public or private.

 

[If any spots are open after the 4 reveals + its confirmations, people will be allowed to aplicate as fillers, with whatever they want to give as reason or accomplishment]

 

 

The creation of a Community Discord will come along the tournament, to keep the tournament interesting, and generate content.

https://discord.gg/F8Qrkek

 

All matches will be screenshotted (or recorded if possible) for commentary and/or analysis purposes, such as 'match of the week', discussion about matchups and stats gathering.

 

The mechanic to spectate battles will be the same as in PSL/wcop, but posting 'playing in 10' in the #scheduling channel on discord and @everyone tag.

 

En Español:

Spoiler

En un esfuerzo por darle vida a la escena de dobles y mejorar el nivel, lanzaré este torneo por invitación, para dar a los jugadores interesados una última oportunidad de competir en un entorno de alto nivel antes del cambio al metagame de Sinnoh

 

El grupo inicial consistirá en 32 invitados provenientes de los jugadores más fuertes y genuinos que se enfrentarán en rondas de formato suizo, y luego se enfrentarán en un Top Cut al mejor de 3 para llevarse la corona a casa.

 

Los invitados se revelarán en un lapso de 12 a 24 horas desde el lanzamiento de esta publicación en grupos de 8. Cada invitado recibirá una semana para aceptar o negar su participación. La confirmación de la asistencia se puede hacer en público o en privado.

 

[Si hay espacios abiertos después de revelar todos los invitados y sus confirmaciones, las personas podrán postularse como rellenos, con lo que quieran dar como razón o logro]

 

La creación de un Discord comunitario vendrá a lo largo del torneo, para mantener el torneo interesante y generar contenido.

https://discord.gg/F8Qrkek

 

Todas las partidas serán hechas screenshot (o grabadas si es posible) con fines de comentarios y/o análisis, como 'partida de la semana', discusión sobre matchups y recopilación de estadísticas.

 

La mecánica para observar batallas será la misma que en PSL/wcop, pero publicando 'jugando en 10' en el canal #scheduling en discord y @everyone tag.

 

 

Pricepool will most likely be low since I dont have much to give, and the winner should take everything home. Ill accept donations.

 

Current pot: 6.5M + 5 Comp Dubs mons. 

Lluvvia - 2M

Parke - 2.5M

OrangeManiac - 2 M

Xigbar - Volcarona, Torkoal, Metagross, Cherrim and Salamence comp dubs mons.

I've checked PSL and World Cup results, researched thru a lot of threads (tournaments etc), computed all automated tournaments with comp. prices and talked to some people about some names they'd recognice as worth inviting. That leaves me with some 'big old' names people told me they were a must, staple players in the PSL scene and consistent/motivated players. I've also checked every request for entering the tour even after I had made the first list, just to see If I skipped anyone important.

 

Spoiler

Automated_tournaments_from_team_preview.

 

Thats roughly every Doubles automated tournament since Team Preview exist. While this doesnt prove anyone worth inviting you can see whos either interested enough in practicing vs other players or can tolerate Doubles enough to go in for the prices. This was made with a simple algorithm that punctuates getting two second places slightly above than a first place, plus counts up to T8 when 64 players tour and up to T4 when 32. Heres the full list of players in case anyone wants to figure it out.

And so, everyone who received an invitation entered the cave and sat around a strange table set in a shabby way.
Between a low uproar the evening began, with the attendees enjoying their cup and their lava cookie, until someone asked the question.

 

Rendi: tf are we doing? Is this not supposed to be a reunion to discuss a tournament?
 

Mysterious Host: (still munchin ') is NOT exactly a tournament, it is a challenge, a test of courage and a great risk.
 

DoubleJ: by risk, will you not refer to a health risk? - Asks while flexing his doctor's diploma -
 

Mysterious host: Hmm could be. The test will start with 5 Swiss rounds, in which people will face each other matched by their results. This means that at the start of round 2 there will be 16 people 1-0 and 16 people 0-1; at the beginning of round 3 there will be 8 people 2-0, 16 people 1-1 and 8 people 0-2; at the beginning of round 4 there will be 4 people 3-0, 12 people 2-1, 12 people 1-2 and then, BAM, someone dies.
 

Nagahex: Boludeces! (Bullshit!)
 

WESTKH: 这 家伙 说 什么
 

Julian: I'd smash a hot ... wait wrong phrase.
 

gbwead: (torching his baguette as if it were a cigar): and why would I want to die for a shit tie ... erhm format?
 

Mysterious Host: Well, not literally die, but every person whose record passes the 3 defeats will be completely out, and with it his run will have died.
 

Nahwel: I think uhh things in life, I think uhmm I get out of here.
 

DoctorPBC (snapping his fingers thanos-like): and then what?
 

Mysterious host: all people who after the fifth round have not come down from the X-2 (16 players) will have qualified for the (best of three) knockout phase. The results 5-0 and 4-1 in the winners bracket and the others in losers. With all this understood, the session is up; who feels strong may accept the challengue and who doesn't... I guess can run for the hills with Nahwel.
 

RealDevilLegend: Donde está Zigh? (Where's Zigh)
 

AlejandroGB: He keeps trying to get his Snorlax through the door, let's save him effort.

Snorlax used Return and Zigh suddenly walked through the door...

 

"Can I use CB Raichu?"
