    Whoops, I'm a bit late on the next tournament, perhaps due to my custom set (shameless plug). Nonetheless, it's here.

    What is SPO (Single-Prize Only)

    As the name suggests, in this format only Pokemon that award a single prize for a knock-out are allowed. That means no GX, no Tag Team, no V or VMAX. Every other card that is currently legal in Standard is also legal in Single-Prize Only.
    The tournament will be ran using a regular Swiss system, with best-of-three rounds. It won't be divided by age groups.

    How to sign up

    If you wish to participate, please send me a private message OR post a comment here (your preference). The message should contain:

    A valid decklist in the SPO Standard format.
    Your Pokemon TCG account name.

    Once a decklist is submitted, the player is allowed to change it once (even to a completely different one), unless the decklist isn't valid (which warrants immediate change), or the submission deadline is over. These submissions should be completed and sent before Sunday, 17.01.2021, 23:59 GMT.

    Tournament structure

    At the beginning of each round, pairings will be posted in this thread, generated through a Swiss system. Each round will last for three days, or 72 hours since the pairings were posted. In the case of all results being reported earlier, the round can finish earlier.
    The players in each pair should contact each other in any way they please and schedule a game. If one of the players needs a time extension of less than 24 hours, they should report it to me.
    The game is run with the decks that were submitted with the registration form. The game is decided on a best-of-three basis.

    Monitoring & Reporting Results

    Results are submitted using the "End of the Game" screenshot.
    While it is not mandatory, it would be extremely helpful if each player recorded each game in case of a dispute, using software such as OBS.
    The winner of each game reports the results directly to me as soon as possible. The final results will be posted in this thread and the next round announced soon after.

    Rewards

    Players will be rewarded with Vivid Voltage codes for Pokemon TCG Online. Each new entry increases the pool of reward codes by one - 16 players means 16 codes, 32 players mean 32 codes, etc.
    The exact reward structure will be announced once the sign-up period is over.

    During the sign-up time I had two lists sent to me. I don't think there's a reason to run these if we don't get at least four players.

    I don't think I'll be able to sorry Yaginku! I've just signed up to a tournament in a custom card format (consisting of cards made by people in this Faking community actually!), so I'm gonna have to give this one a miss unfortunately.

    Usually each round consists of three days, so there's plenty time to schedule and play your matches. Do you need a specific timeframe?
