It's that time of year again! Welcome to Draft League!
What is a Draft League?
A Draft League is a competition where, rather having the ability to use any Pokémon to build a team, you are limited to about a dozen Pokémon that you select during a draft. Because of the limited pool of Pokémon available to each person, you'll need to use creative team building to win games and have a shot at winning the tournament as a whole. This Draft League will be GBA-Style meaning each Pokemon is assigned to a tier and each tier is given a point value. You get a free pick from each tier and then have to manage your points to build the rest of your team.
Rules For Participants:
- A discord is mandatory to sign up for this tournament. Discord makes it easier to schedule battles and see announcements regarding the Draft League.
- All battles will be done on this server: http://draftfrontier.psim.us/
- You must have an account older than 1 month to join. Along with this you must either have at least 100 posts on the forums or be active in the Marriland Discord.
- This tournament is in Bo1 format and I will be accepting 12 participants unless there is a larger demand. Participants will be split into 3 groups and play every person in their group twice and the other participants once. this will determine seeding for playoffs with the top person in each group and the person with the best record that didn't win their group making it out. All playoff matches will be Bo3.
- Save your replays and post them in the thread as proof of victory. Your win will not count unless there is a replay. I will be enforcing this more this year.
- No ghosting (helping another person do their battle).
- If you are not able to do your battle with your opponent within the week allotted one of two things will happen:
b. If neither player made contact, the winner will be decided through coin flip.
