    Hello friends. I've confirmed the dates and venues for the Spring Battle Roads tournaments. All will have registration from 10-11am. The format has changed so there will only be swiss rounds, no top cut, 30 minute rounds plus 1,2,3. Prizing is still really light; Victory Cup trophy cards for 1-3 plus 4 boosters to first and second and 2 boosters for 3 & 4th place. There is no series promo card or promotional item that is given to all participants :0(

    It was fun playing after a set release, and it was good to play with people out there!

    However, not to be a jerk or anything, but if I hear another rumor, or anything that may have slip regarding people giving out wins to other people to boost up resistance, then I am considering letting Pokemon Organized Play know about this.

    I know it is just a game, we are here to have fun, and its quite relaxed, but I can't help it that people with connection with head judges put discrepancies on the tournament, and I am not please with this.

    If this can be fixed, that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
     
  10. There is nothing you can do if people voluntarily concede. Letting POP know wouldnt do anything IMO. as long as there was no bribery involved or the outcome was not determined by random means.
    10.1. Conceding a Match
    Players may concede a match to their opponents if they wish, and judges should allow players
    the opportunity to offer a concession if time is called on an incomplete match but before the
    players sign their match slip. Once the match slip has been signed by both players, the result of
    the match cannot be changed.
    If a player wishes to concede a match to his or her opponent, a judge or score runner must be
    called immediate

    There is a debate over whether conceding to friends is considered good practice, but it is certainly legal under POP guidelines.

    I don't understand what you're trying to get at? You're talking about resistance and connections to the head judge? If the head judge is paying players under the table or bribing them with packs to concede to another player then fine I completely agree that you should report that to PoP. However, if one person conceded the round before out of his own free will and decided the next round that he's going to play it out for whatever reason then that's his choice. If you're angry that you didn't get top 4 or win then let me assure you it has nothing to do with these people. You win some, you lose some. If you want to play a card game and win more frequently, then better yourself at it. There's no need to be calling out other players and especially the head judge who's only intention is to run a clean and fun tournament.

    Just thought there was some important info that was not present in the forum that I feel was important to the topic.

    This is incredibly disappointing.

    In a span of about 3 posts, a disgruntled tournament participant has questioned the integrity of the Head Judge/Tournament Organizer, slandered some of the most accomplished players in the province, and threatened to report to POP for what he perceives to be unethical (but not illegal) actions without any undeniable evidence of wrongdoing.

    I doubt harm was intended to anyone but this is poor spirit of the game. To prevent animosity at future events, retracting said accusations and apologizing to the offended parties are definitely in order.

    Pnoiboy21 the same people win because they are good players. Have you ever watched a competitive sport on tv? Your argument about new players not winning is like saying "why dont grandmothers enter the NHL? Why is it always the young fit guys that win?". It is because they play well.

    If you win all of your games you'll do well, resistance only matters if you lose. So chill out. Not to mention this is pokemon AND it's battle roads, the smallest tournament of them all in a pretty casual game..
