shoutouts to Albinson for the fantastic art!
  • There will be 6 teams and the tournament will have about 2 weeks of signups, 5 weeks of round robin and 2 weeks of playoffs (not counting any potential tiebreakers). That places the end of the tournament sometime in mid to late February, managers (or their assistant manager) are expected to be active throughout the tournament until that point. You may pick an assistant manager from the pool of players you draft or optionally signup with an assistant manager - if you signup with one they will not be allowed to play.
  • Managers may "self-buy". This means that they draft themselves during round 1 of the snake draft.​
  • The tournament format is as follows:​
    Galar AG
    Galar AG
    National Dex AG
    National Dex AG
    With the number of players per team being 8 (6 slots + 2 subs)​
  • If you want to manage a team in AG Snake Draft, make a post using the below format. People who haven't managed in AGPL before are strongly encouraged to signup! Managers will be decided by the tournament host as well as the AG ROs. This thread will be open for a week whereupon managers will be decided!
