This is the matchup thread for the Genwunner Singles Showdown, and for this we will be doing something a bit different. If anyone watched the UK Robot Wars this year, it'll look very familiar. Round 1 is straight 1vs1 knockouts. With seven players, one of you will get a bye into Round 2, which is where things get interesting. In Round 2 the four players remaining will be put into a league-style setup where they'll face each of the other players once. The two players who get the most wins will then face off in the final round in a best-2-out-of-3 match to determine the champion. In the event that the players in 2nd and 3rd in the league table have the same score, whoever won their battle will be the one to proceed to the finals. If it's confusing, stick Robot Wars 2016 into YouTube and enjoy. Anyway, first round: Psycho Monkey vs Brendan Savem Shiny Lyni vs Mr. RMA Aura vs -BYE- Ruko vs Dwayna Dragonfire ROUND 2 Psycho Monkey - 2-1 Shiny Lyni - 2-1 Dwayna Dragonfire - 2-1 Aura - 0-3 FINAL Shiny Lyni vs Psycho Monkey Deadline for the first round is 20th October. As always, failing to complete your matchups on time without good reason will affect your eligibility to compete in future tournaments - if you're having trouble keeping to the deadline, make sure you let me know so that I can grant a deadline extension. All battles will take place on Pokemon Showdown, the link to which is below: http://pokemonshowdown.com/ (Pokémon Showdown! battle simulator) After completing your matches, remember to post the result here. Both players are required to post the results of each battle for it to be registered. Do NOT post battle replays in this topic; any replays are to be sent to me via private message. Breaking this rule is grounds for disqualification. I think that's everything, so have at it.
