Welcome to the sixth Ubers Ladder Tournament! This tournament aims to give exposure to both upcoming players and veterans alike by having them race to the top of the leaderboard on the Ubers Showdown ladder on newly made accounts over 2 cycles. The top 8 from both cycles then enter a single elimination bracket to see who can win it all!

This tournament has two stages, as described below:

Stage One:
Players wishing to participate should post their signup within this thread (for Cycle 2), along with registering a new Pokemon Showdown! account corresponding to the selected tag of the cycle. It is important to ensure that the account registered matches the cycle's tag, otherwise your signup will be ignored and your ladder peak not counted. At the beginning of both cycles, you will be expected to register a new alt. In the first stage of the tournament, players will attempt to climb the [Gen 9] Ubers ladder with the goal of achieving a spot in the top 8 of a cycle. Those who manage to claim one of these spots will enter into the playoff phase that will be broken down below in Stage Two. All qualified players will be assigned a seed from 1 to 16 (8 players within the 2 ladder cycles) based on the ELO they finished with at the cycle's deadline. The #9 and #10 players of each cycle become potential substitutes, should any of the top 8 players drop out of the tournament. ELO also determines substitute priority. Both qualified players and substitutes may also play again during the next cycle, as they can potentially improve their seed.

Players caught using pre-registered accounts will be disqualified from the tournament with absolutely no exceptions.

Stage Two:
Following the two cycles of stage one, the top 16 players will play in a Best of 3 SV Ubers single elimination tournament bracket to determine the winner. Tournament brackets pairings will be determined via seeding determined by overall ELO scores of all ladder cycles. The #1 seed will face seed #16, #2 will play #15, and so on.

If you wish to participate in Cycle 2, YOU MUST SIGN UP WITH YOUR FRESHLY MADE ALT BEFORE STARTING BATTLES WITH IT. The tag is ULTJA5L (for example: ULTJA5L 7u9i2). The laddering period begins right now, and will run up until the Cycle 2 deadline, which is on April 23rd, 11:59AM GMT-4. GLHF!
