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:
  1. A discord is mandatory to sign up for this tournament. Discord makes it easier to schedule battles and see announcements regarding the Draft League.
  2. All battles will be done on this server: http://draftfrontier.psim.us/
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. No ghosting (helping another person do their battle).
  7. If you are not able to do your battle with your opponent within the week allotted one of two things will happen:
a: The person who failed to make contact/schedule/show up for battle will automatically lose.
b. If neither player made contact, the winner will be decided through coin flip.

Rules for Battles:
  1. The clauses active will be: Species Clause, Endless Battle Clause, Sleep Clause, OHKO Clause, Evasion Clause, and Moody Clause.
  2. We will be using Smogon OU with the following changes:
a. Sand Force Landorus-Incarnate unbanned
b. Arena Trap unbanned
c. Aura Break Zygarde unbanned
d. Blaze Blaziken unbanned
e. Floette-Eternal is allowed to be used
f. Protean and Battle Bond Greninja banned
g. Tapu Lele banned
h. Magearna banned
i. Omniboosting moves banned
j. Moves that cause Confusion (Swagger, Flatter, Confuse Ray, etc.) banned

Okay fine, I got bullied into this by @BasedJarrod even though I've no clue what the eff I'm doing, but you need more people to get this off the ground so.

Availability: I mean I've got the whole coming week off work, but if we go past next weekend then it'll depend.

I'll post my work schedule for the week after, so I'm available around that. Usually after shifts, not before. Days off I can do any time except between 7pm-10pm on Monday and Thursday because those are my WoW raid nights (though obviously factor in sleep times, usually between 2am-10am).

I even made showdown account just for this what the hell I hope you're all very pleased with yourselves

The current favorite to win the tournament is none other than our very own Flo, courtesy of his astounding last-minute draft of "Tapu" Budew!
