The total score of all 3 entries will be calculated when determining winners. If you are not registered in a team by the time the event starts, you will have to participate solo, but will get all of the prize money for yourself :thonk: If you are looking for a team, feel free to join the discord (https://discord.gg/VVaBdg) and post under #find-team-for-events It is strongly encouraged to use the link chat function with your teammates during the event. Please note that each player is not restricted to only catching one species. For example, if Parke from Team VVVV has a strong Squirtle entry (170iv knock on wood), he can come to the Charmander spot or the Bulbasaur spot to help his teammates. It doesn't matter who catches what as long as the final submission has OTs of the players registered in the team (an entry of 2 Parke OTs and 1 Orange OT is valid. So is an entry of 3 Parke OTs ez carry). I only ask that each team submits all 3 of their entries in the same pm pls ty Registration: Now! Teams can register up to 3 people Post your team here according to the format: Team Name: Registered Players: Rules: To win 1st-3rd place that is sorted by high to low, you need to submit an entry whose total scores the highest You can only submit one entry (one set of Piplup, Chimchar, and Turtwig) All Pokémon must be caught within the event time and at the event location All Pokémon must remain unchanged (untrained/unevolved...) Evolved or unevolved forms of the listed Pokémon will not be accepted as a valid entry You (or one of your teammates) must be the OT of the Pokémon You must link your entry to me (IGN: Cali) to submit it (please keep your entry in your party until you see it on the google sheet which will be shared at the meetup spot) In the event of a tie, the winner will be determined by earliest catch time (In this case, I'll be calculating total time elapsed from the start time of the event -> least time wins) 1st Place Prize 4.5M  2nd Place Prize 600k + 3 xmas presents 3rd Place Prize 600k + 3 xmas presents

  8. Regarding the scoring system, while it does have its pros of being able to define a more objective MVP, the actions taken by the majority of the award winners to secure their title is a bit concerning. We've seen allegations of throwing, dodging opponents depending on how other players in the standings are doing, and dragging out activity with no consequence, which overall probably isn't very healthy in a tournament which should be promoting high level matches to actually be played. I wouldn't fault the scoring system in this instance because at the end of the day, what we're seeing here is player driven. The players are the ones who can make the choice to forego additional competition to exploit an award. For context, the last time this ranking system was used, both Zhiko and SweeTforU had similar records at the end of week 6. The next week, Sweet plays early and splits his matches (there were two per week). So in Zhiko's eyes, the extensive subbing in and out we've seen in this PSL is probably similar to if during week 7, after beating Jason once (who at the time was 6-2) he were to sub out or grab activity since there's a possibility he might lose the MVP if he stays in and loses the second game. Obviously this thought never crosses his mind and he plays and wins both duels back to back to secure his MVP. So on that front, I can understand his frustration since he probably expected his competitors to play their games and not care about numbers on an excel document, similar to his path to that PSL's MVP. Future actions are tricky. If a player is really that averse to extra competition for an award, it brings into question the integrity of both the player and the award, sure. But there's not a whole lot a host can do about it. Obviously, credit the player for winning enough to put them in this situation, but the schedule strength for each player is an uncontrollable variable. This could lead to some matches that may be extremely important in week 7 and others where a team is already effectively eliminated, leading to potential throwing and/or dodging. A potential solution would be to use the scoring system to count as 1 baseline vote, and then each small council member (let's say there are 3 members in this instance) and the host would also vote, totaling to 5. If the vote results in a clear dispute, a salty suite esque exhibition with the candidates in question before the playoffs could settle it. By adding a level of subjectivity, players may potentially not be as liberal with their movements in and out of the lineup or be as keen to coordinate a throw. Tldr: This scoring system has been used before, but everyone played their games in the past (to my knowledge). The alleged actions seen in this edition could set an unwanted precedent for future PSLs
