Welcome to the sixth iteration of TLT (Tours' Leaderboard Tournament)! Throughout this tournament, players will battle in a best-of-three/best-of-five (from the 6th round on) format each round, with Smogon's standard tiers being the metagames played. This tournament is also double elimination, so if you're defeated once, you're still in the loser's portion of the bracket.

The tiers that will be played are:
SS Ubers
SS OU
SS UU
SS RU
SS NU
SS PU
SS LC
SS DOU
SS Monotype

In order to fairly determine the three of these nine tiers played in each individual matchup, players will take turns locking and eliminating tiers among themselves. They'll both lock one tier, followed by eliminating three tiers, thus leaving three tiers to be played. The lower seeded player will lock the first tier, followed by the higher seed player. Then the lower seeded player will eliminate the first tier, followed by the higher seed player, and it will repeat in that order two more times. The higher seed player picks what tier is played first of the three tiers. After that, the loser of game one picks which of the two tiers is played for game two. Naturally, game three will be played in the last remaining tier.

(Example: PrinceOfAllTacos is seed #1, while Swiffix is seed #16. Swiffix, the lower seed, decides to lock PU, followed by PrinceOfAllTacos locking RU. At this point, neither PU nor RU can be eliminated. Swiffix the lower seed, chooses to first eliminate Ubers. PrinceOfAllTacos follows with OU. Swiffix then eliminates LC, and PrinceOfAllTacos eliminates Doubles OU. Swiffix then eliminates NU, and PrinceOfAllTacos eliminates Monotype. So thus the three tiers that would be played are PU (what Swiffix locked in), RU (what PrinceOfAllTacos locked in) and UU (the tier that didn't get banned). Of these tiers remaining, PrinceOfAllTacos, the higher seed, chooses to play RU first. PrinceOfAllTacos then loses game one, and chooses to play UU next. Should it go to game three, the tier to be played will be PU.)

Basic tournament rules - read these, especially if you're new to forum tours
Sportsmanship: Don't be an ass. Not to your opponents, not on PS, not on Smogon, not to me. A bit of friendly banter is ok, but please know where to draw the line. Think before you type, please.

Scheduling and Activity Wins: Contact your opponent as quickly as possible on their Smogon wall, and look out for them on PS. You will have one week from the posting of the week's matches to get it done. Extensions will be for two days after the scheduled deadline, and no further. If your opponent is not responding to your post on their wall, cannot be found on PS, or miss multiple scheduled times, make a detailed activity post in the thread letting me know why you deserve the win. No activity post means no activity call. As long as you have visible attempts at scheduling (such as wall posts), you will be fine.

Disconnections and Timer: A timer loss is a loss. No if's, and's, or but's about it. If your opponent is nice enough to replay that's fine, but they are by no means obligated to.

Ghosting and Identity: Don't take or give battle advice or make moves based solely on the suggestions of others, and don't pretend to be someone else in order to play as them. You will be caught, and you will be disqualified from this tournament as well as future PS! tournaments (BLT, PSPL, etc.).

Substitutions: Substitutions will be made only for rounds one & two, with round two subs only being allowed for any participants in the loser's bracket.

Fragments vs Undefeated Alt: A fragment of an undefeated alt is an alt with a loss. Bound to burn and Mars is a dumb planet. Buy gold.

dunoks vs Lady Writer: Do knocks, knocks while a lady writer is writing. Thus interrupting her. Leading to a minor grammatical mistake in the novel she is writing or something. IDk. Nuke the whales.

Sificon vs SiceXV: Both start with "si" but only one has fi while the other has a V. Si is greater than V because yes is worth more than five. Drink more milk.

TDR vs Lukasjoel1: Things will work out. You got this. Life is hard. You can be the ripest, juiciest peach in the world, but there will always be someone who hates peaches. Get plenty of sleep.

Failbor vs Banbadoro: Mal may be mal but Failibor is a Fal. So pal, you best watch out bc he is going to plow your uh fields or something. Make sense bc mal's pfp is has mudsdale which is a plowing horse or something. Failibor wins. Be persistent. When knowledge and ability aren’t enough, be persistent. Drink water everyday.

JJ09LIE vs Dj Breloominati♬: Upset. Both have really cute pfps but the dino hoodie puts JJ's over the top. Happiness is a choice and everything else is a matter of perspective. Remember to floss.

Elfuseon vs Sanjay das: oof tough mu Sanjay. Elfu is really good rn and despite being Canadian he is good at game. Have the courage to live a life true to yourself, not the life others expect of you. Remember to read when you have free time.

Thiago Nunes vs martinvtran: The ancestors of modern penguins may have been approximately 2m tall and weighed over 100kg! Fossils found in Antarctica suggest there were once giant penguins roaming the earth around 37 million years ago. You’re defined by what you do, not by what you say. Fancy words don’t make up for a sloppy character. Remember to not lick doorknobs.

jay vs Jordy004: Jordy004 had a J in it. Jay is a J. So he has an inside guy in Jordy004's name. Therefore he will sabotage the name and win the game. ez. Pessimism is more persuasive than optimism. But optimism in the face of a difficult situation is what motivates people to find a way forward. Only you can prevent forest fires.

PokemonCestDur vs DOOR MONEY: PCD is French. That is one negative. But Door money is from -4 which is uhhh at least three negatives. Therefore since this is not golf... PCD wins. The average person is more interested in their name than in all the other names on earth put together. Remember to take your shirt off before you go on a waterslide.

Baloor vs vanillacoke: Baloor. Lead a daring life. Try new activities. Challenge yourself. Stop obsessing about what other people think. Just send it, but know your limits. It is ok to shower, actually it is encouraged.

lkapkd1 vs udongirl: :skull: . I mean... :skull: . He is going to win this whole damn thing. Lk, apkd1 that timer button. Motivation is not predictable, so you can’t rely on it. The most powerful way to increase your motivation is to take action and make progress. Watermelon is nutritious, hydrating, and tastes good.

xSkelly34 vs mushamu: His pfp is hilarious. Mush is goated but funny pfp trumps goatness. The way someone treats you is a reflection of how they feel about themselves. Check the weather before heading outside.

RichardPepper vs crying: I mean... have we learned yet to never doubt Richard. ez first round upset. Letting yourself be vulnerable isn't always a weakness. Sometimes it can be a conscious decision to draw the other person out. Cut once measure twice.

wesh papillon vs skimmythegod: Tough one. I really like skimmy. Pap has had his moments tho. Uhhh...

(cointoss). Remember to pet your cat if you have one.

Meminger21 vs Cielau: Love the pfp memi. :dizzy: . Cielau loses because honestly I was just picking the left side. It is all going to work out tho. Bet. A smile is the easiest way out of a difficult situation. Also remember to eat watermelon. Seriously.

Won vs Failbor, ggs.
i am publicly requesting that replays be mandatory next round. there is no logical reason why they shouldn't be. not posting replays gives you a slight advantage in prep. while you can just take this advantage and not post replays yourself, it sucks the fun out of the tour for everybody, especially if nobody is posting. while this has been "tradition" for tlt early rounds, every similar tour on the site mandates replays around this stage for a reason. this isnt ost with over 600 signups, this is the top 32 out of a 8 week qualifying stage.
