The Hero Championship League Revival and Information Thread

Post by Finchinator on Sun Feb 09, 2014 10:08 pm

Hello everyone. As you may hypothesize based on the title, this thread will be made for discussing the Hero Championship League. Due to the recent Elite merge with Hero, this can no longer be titled the "Elite Hero Championship League", as Elite no longer exists. In addition, as a consequence of some managerial and player failures to commit to the tournament and forgetfulness in general, we have elected to start off with a brand new installment of this tournament as we believe that the idea has quite a bit of potential if executed properly. For more information on the decision to restart, feel free to ask Finchinator, Maple Syrup, or Daybreak.

Now, onto the overall logistics, format, and other information about the Hero Championship League (HCL). [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] is the final PB for EHCL, which contains links to the Initial and Supplemental PBs, Final Rosters, and Rules. This will be ran similarly, but there will be a few departures in format and other aspects of the tournament. First off, let me introduce the managers:

  • Finchinator and The Tenacious Tyranitar
  • Daybreak and The Manaical Mandibuzz
  • Zac Flare and The Crazed Chandelure
  • Cobalt and The Communist Crawdaunt
  • Lilligant and The Diplomatic Dittos
  • Maple Syrup and The Shucking Fuckles


Secondly, let's discuss the rules and regulations for this tournament:


  • Each team gets the same amount of money (to be determined) at the start of the auction.
  • Bidding is done with the minimum, first bid being 3k and each subsequent bid raising the price by a minimum of .5k and a maximum of whatever the team has remaining, subtracted by 3k times the amount of remaining spots needed to fill the minimum amount of players needed on a roster.
  • Each team must buy (to be determined) players to be on their teams. In regards to substitutes, let’s say no more than (to be determined) people on a team, including managers, who may play for free (unless we elect to change this rule).
  • The nomination order will be (to be determined - likely randomized pre-auction), but it doesn't matter as the nominator only gets the first 3k bid. Then, any team with sufficient funds can up-bid the player being nominated, assuming they have a roster spot left.
  • No illegal aliases. This means that no permanently banned users from the Pokemon Online Server or either respective clan can partake, nor can any of their alts that are evading bans join. There may be no making alts specifically for this competition. Finally, every manager must be aware of any and all other prominent aliases their players go by, if a player does sign up on an alias. If any of these rules are found to be broken, the player will be automatically disqualified, their wins may be voided, and the managers could receive additional punishment depending on what occurred and my discretion.
  • Managers must be on the “playing roster” (this rule may be changed, to be determined). This doesn't mean starting, although that is advised as you might as well make something of the free (the amount is up for discussion; it could still be free, but to be determined) roster spot handed to you. Each player can only play in one tier each week. In addition, any form of individual or team ghosting is strictly prohibited. Helping with moves or minimal discussion in a PM or team channel is permitted, as always, but anything excessive or controlling that is caught will result in severe punishments and potential banishment.  
  • Battles will get (a to be determined period of time) to get done. After each team plays every other team (meaning after 5 weeks of regular season due to their being six teams), the best two teams, record-wise, (with amount of wins accumulated over the preceding weeks being the tie-breaker) will play in the final. The other four teams can play for consolation that same week, too. The winner is rewarded with bragging rights that shouldn't be used excessively and potentially a (to be determined) prize!
  • There will be no all-star week, but if [HERO] would like to organize something for their best performers, it will be allowed, although not directly tied-in with the tournament unless it is organized prior to the commencement of the tournament and approved by myself.
  • Line-Ups may change each week and players may, of course, use separate teams each week. However, all teams must be legal by Pokemon Online Tiers and usable on the respective tiers' ladder on the Pokemon Online Server on Pokemon Online Version 2.
  • If a player is banned, his wins may be stripped depending on the offense (see earlier rule for more on this). Also, the team will be rewarded a consolation pick from the pool of players that weren't picked, or from newly interested players, depending on the offense and other team-members actions in regard to the offense. However, if a group of multiple participants on a team were all found to be involved with illegal actions, termination of a team may be considered (and potentially implemented) if found to be appropriate for the circumstances.
  • Each late roster will not only hold everyone up (MIKASA!), but give the manager of the team a strike. For three strikes, the team is rewarded a loss in the tier the manager is playing that week. If a manager is not playing, I will randomly pick a tier and give them an auto-loss after the manager submits their line-up, so they cannot adjust accordingly to the auto-loss. If a manager has been rewarded five strikes, the team he is managing automatically loses that week. There cannot be any strikes after five because there aren't more than five regular season weeks, but if you somehow get more, you're ded to tyrenitr rok slid. Finally, strikes may also be given for disciplinary matters and a late roster can count as two strikes if more than 48 hours have passed and it hasn't been submitted.
  • Activity wins will be granted upon request by the user and/or manager who was not only active, but also attempting to schedule a battle. Saving logs of conversations is strongly advised to verify most situations, but there are some exceptions. Falsified logs are an automatic loss and possible suspension / banishment. Fake logs will also be a strike on the manager, without a doubt, regardless of it being their fault or their players' fault.
  • COMMON SENSE - use it wisely. I CANNOT STRESS THIS RULE ENOUGH.


Rules and Information about the Auction:

  • As previously stated, each team is given (to be determined amount of money).
  • As previously stated, each team needs to draft at least (to be determined amount of players), which is the minimum amount to fill out the line-up assuming the manager is playing (to be determined logistics about managers playing and such).
  • As previously stated, each team may not draft more than (to be determined amount of players), making their roster be composed of (the number in the previous parenthesis plus one, for the manager). Any extra bidding after that will be disallowed. There will be no supplemental auction, but there may be a small-scale 'mid-season' auction of sorts if appropriate.
  • As previously stated, the maximum bid is all of the money a manager has left, minus the amount of players he needs to fill up his roster multiplied by 3k.
  • I, Finchinator, will be keeping a list of remaining players, teams’ rosters, money remaining / spent, and everything else in regards to the auction. It will be posted prior to every nomination and the auction will be done similarly to the EHCL auction. I request that someone saves full auction logs; this also means no kicking, love-tapping, or banning of users during the auction, so they can save the entire log. Thank you in advanced for your cooperation.
  • Once a player is nominated, teams may bid on him / her (internet girls are fake!) in an orderly matter. To make this as orderly as possible without an auction bot (I blame Cobalt), you must wait at least three seconds after the last bid to up-bid, unless you and another bidder are posting at the same time, then it’s unavoidable and whoever pressed enter first has the bid (which can easily be up-bid in most scenarios). After (approximately) fifteen seconds without any up-bids, the player is sold to the team with the highest bid. If you have any questions, ask Finchinator. In addition, time stamps from Finchinator’s computer will be used (Yes, I know I am leaving responsibility to myself, but I have the most experience and knowledge in this area, so trust me – unless somebody magically made functioning scripts, unlike the POCL garbo ones).
  • A bid can be placed by saying the amount informally. To specify on the meaning of informally in this context, I’ll give an example. Let’s say that I am bidding Seven Thousand Dollars on tyrenitr. I will type: 7k. If I am bidding 9.5k on tyrenitr1, I’d say: 9.5k. In addition, remember that the nomination is a 3k bid; up-bids can be done in increments of .5k, or larger amounts that are dividable with .5k.
  • Once the bidding is done on a player, don’t nominate anyone until I am able to: A) Post the list of remaining players, B) Post the list of rosters, C) Post the list of money remaining for each team, and D) say Go! after all of these aforementioned things occur. Then, the team up to nominate can nominate as they desire and the up-bidding of a player, if any other teams elect to up-bid, can be done in the appropriate matter that was previously enumerated.
  • IMPORTANT: I swear to god if any of you act stupidly, trollishly, or anything along those lines on purpose, we will replace you if it isn't too late (or give the managerial position to someone else in the clan). The auction is very serious and although small jokes regarding some things are acceptable, don’t do anything that can potentially hurt the atmosphere of the auction or physically disrupt its occurrence. This includes kicking, banning, love tapping, etc. of any managers or people directly involved. In addition, since the chat will be muted to the public, please refrain from unsilencing the chat or giving auth to users who aren't involved with the bidding process. Anything else that crosses the line is a judgment call and action will be taken if managers’ misdeeds are deemed devious enough to call for punishment.
  • COMMON FUCKING SENSE, use it wisely. This is more of an elastic clause which can apply to any wrongdoing and acting on it – I will not refrain from utilizing it if anything improper is being done.
  • Managers are accountable for all of the enumerated regulations and everything else that has been discussed unless it has been clearly stated otherwise! Please read, you’ll just be screwing yourself over if you don’t.


Next off, the official channel for this tournament is: #[HERO] TOUR! Feel free to leave it on auto-join if you wish to partake!

The tiers that will definitely be included are the following: XY Ubers, XY OU, XY UU, BW OU.
The tiers that may be included are the following: (Second) XY OU, XY LC, BW UU, BW LU, BW NU, DPP OU.

Sign-Ups will be done in this thread; the code for signing-up is the following:
Code:
[B]Username[/B]:
[B]Tiers[/B]:
[B]Timezone[/B]:
[B]Other Information[/B]:

Example entry: Username: Finchinator.
Tiers: (Use from all potential tiers from both lists above) XY OU, XY UU, BW OU, BW UU, BW LU, BW NU, DPP OU.
Timezone: GMT-5.
Other Information: I like to play pokemon; have been doing so for almost two and a half years on a competitive level. My forte is BW2 UU, but I can play just about any and every tier well if called upon. I have done well in various tournaments, but I have also done poorly in some, too, so keep that in mind. Finally, my activity is high and might be inconsistent on a few week-nights, but the weekend and most evenings will make up for my minimal inactive days here and there.

Finally, any questions can be asked in this thread or on the server, but should be primarily directed at myself, Finchinator.

First, i want to say that this is really well done! I'm hoping that this time the goddamn thing actually kicks off. But seeing this makes me think that it will be very well managed. Smile

Username: Monsters of Men / memories / Lionheart
Tiers: XY Ubers / BW2 Ubers (i don't think that was in the to be considered list, but in the case it was accidentally omitted lol)
Timezone: GMT+10 (Australia)
Other Information: Sup, i'm monsters of men. I'm a very dedicated Ubers player, only really playing that tier on a consistent basis. I could brag about my multiple #1 peaks on the ubers ladder, but ya'know, it's the ladder. Honestly not sure what else to say. I mean, i too could brag about my sexiness and extreme levels of attractiveness like Afro, but i think that's a given. :] Activity wise i'm generally not very active during the week because of school but can usually come on during the weekend.
