Here's the official battle thread for the Little Cup Showdown. All battle results are to be posted here and here you will find the battle brackets and matchups what-have-you. Matchups will be updated once both players have updated the thread, so even if you lose you still need to post here and confirm it. First things first, the rules: This tournament will be a knockout rounds tournament, and each matchup will be best 2 out of 3, so in order to progress to the next round you must beat your opponent in two battles to win the match. Last person standing is Little Cup Champion, and will win themselves a Little Cup-related forum title. So without further ado, courtesy of my random number generator, here are the matchups for Round 1: SparkyLewis949 vs Aurora Beam CreeperNinjaGamer vs LatiasMusic Steveplays vs Luxray901 Skyheart42 vs Dwayna Dragonfire Jeydis vs Psycho Monkey Jason59707 vs Shiny_Umbreon UmbralHero vs Rex SpaxThePacifist vs AzureEdge ROUND 2 CreeperNinjaGamer vs Jeydis Shiny_Umbreon vs SparkyLewis949 Dwayna Dragonfire vs UmbralHero SpaxThePacifist vs Steveplays ROUND 3 Jeydis vs Dwayna Dragonfire Steveplays vs -BYE- FINAL Steveplays vs Dwayna Dragonfire CHAMPION Dwayna Dragonfire I am aware that there have been some difficulties in accessing the forums lately. With that in mind, the deadline for these matchups has been extended slightly to January 10th 2015. If anyone has not completed their battles by then, the least active player will be disqualified. Do note as well that if you are having trouble contacting your opponent, make sure you update me by posting here saying so, otherwise if I receive no notification from you that you've attempted to contact your opponent, I'll assume you are not active either and you'll be disqualified as well. Players who drop out at this stage without any good reason (and I'll decide if the reason is good or not) or become inactive now will not be eligible for future tournaments, so keep that in mind. Regarding battle replays: Do not post them in this thread, send them to me via private message. I don't want everyone seeing each other's teams as I know some players would feel put out by having their team given away against their will, so to avoid this happening I'd like any battle replays PM'd to me. Also, don't reply to the reminder message with your replays either. This will again reveal the replays to every single other player, which defeats the purpose of PM'ing me the replays in the first place. Anyone violating this rule will be disqualified from whatever battle they committed the offense in, which in this case would knock you out of the tournament outright. Please keep this in mind.
