To the one who loses the other bracket:
I'm not going to fight 3rd / 4th place battle.
I did not feel in mood or had the time to fight my semifinal (and I played having something important to do for tomorrow, which is a bad idea but I really wanted to fight asap so I could focus on other things).
I dont want to fight another battle because i really lost interest on playing Pokemon or anything lately mostly because my mind is focused on my Architecture career where im currently having a little struggle to try to get ahead since i had pretty bad results on my works lately .

I know this may bring up some critics but im giving the 3rd place to whoever loses the other semifinal bracket (Kixune or 'a hick').
Sorry for this detail but im sure you will all understand my career is way more important for me than winning right now.

EDIT:
Kixune and a hick are currently 1-1. Waiting for the last batttle.

http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen7doublescustomgame-552451291 Kixune 1-0 a hick
http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen7doublescustomgame-552458491 Kixune 1-1 a hick

--------------------


So, did this last battle ever happen?

--------------------
Twitter
No, not yet, but it hopefully will happen soon. (tm)

There's not much preventing either of us from doing the last match, except for finding time to actually do it when we aren't busy and schedules don't conflict. It should happen at some point, and some point before the month ends, since stuff idk
As im aware that both 'a hick' and Kixune are quite busy i didnt want to give another deadline to them and since im REALLY busy now, if its not a problem for the staff, i would like to wait at least until the month ends for that battle. Otherwise i'll see what to do (tho i dont want to push this any longer)

--------------------


Alright, end of the month it is.

--------------------
Twitter
Kixune told me yesterday shortly after that post that he is leaving the tournament because he doesn't have time to fight the last battle.
Thus 'a hick' wins and face Najeraldo in the finals.

Now i would like to apologize for the one-month inactivity over this tournament. As i was really busy with university i couldn't check this very often nor post and, as i expected Kixune and 'a hick' to fight shortly after the last post i made, i was kind of relaxed about it. It wasn't until now i was able to do something about this again.
Im sorry and i won't let this happen again.

:(

I was looking forward to that last battle, since the first 2 were pretty exciting. Oh well and all that, things must happen, and ggs anyway, at least.

:)

Najeraldo and I have planned to to this finals match on the upcoming Friday around the same time that I posted this. (obviously may adjust for timezones, but the forum post system can do that)

Congratulations to Najeraldo for winning this Doubles OU tourney. As a fact, Najeraldo is the first invict champion on these tournaments and he's the first latin user to win.

Im sorry for the extrme delay on this tourney (It almost lasted 3 months for a hick and Najeraldo). I wont let this happen again.

POLL:

Next Tourney Tier: LC
Its going to take place during August.

FORMAT:

As there was a draw 2-2 for this poll i have to give my opinion over this matter.
I consider Single Elimination to be a better format mainly for the forfeit thing. Doubles elimination imply more battles, more time for the tournament overall and i think some people are not going to spend that much time on a tournament. I'd rather have a tournament where people get eliminated after playing 2/3 battles than tournaments with way more battles where a lot of players may forfeit.

So, we are going to keep Single Elimination as the official format for these tourneys.

Thanks for participating and i'll see you next tourney.

GGs a hick.

I wasn't expecting to get to the finals and much less winning the tournament. At first I wasn't even motivated to participate, since I had no experience in doubles and no knowledge of the double team archtypes. When I saw the tournamed would have 17 participants, I was about to drop so it woul only have 16, and I only stayed because Orphen joined, and I'm glad I did.

And, now I'm the champions, so...Yays! and stuff.

Looking forward for the LC tournament, that's one of my favorite formats.

Here's the team I used. No nicknames because I was lazy this time. I'll probably make some changes later, so I won't be using this anymore. I have to say this team performed way better than I expected.

I won't post my team because it is utter bullshit, and all that jazz, but I will put here that next time we have a tournament that is in a format I know nothing about I will study up on it just a TINY bit :)

I'm pretty excited for the LC tournament; that is probably the ONLY format that I have a good knowledge of what works in. (or, I used to, in gen 6...)

And... type coverage! I used to think it was the bomb but when you choose team stuff in the 10 minutes before your first match I guess you don't really do that

:D Good tourney, guys!

(ps lloyd you're really good at placing 4th :P)

Then you should have gone with double eliminations. In single eliminations, 50% of the players get eliminated after playing 1 battle. Not 2 or 3, 1.

Also, seeing as forfeiting is so disruptive, there should really just be a penalty for it.
Congrats to the winner, and I'm also looking forward to the next tournament.

I laughed, but I feel that I shouldn't have, somehow...
