Well, that does it for AllStar Week. There's one match left unfinished, but since we don't need it done to continue, the combatants can compete it at their leisure (so long as its before the last match).

-----------------------------------

It all comes down to this, then. After a pair of upsets in the Semifinals, we head into the championship bout with two 2nd-seed teams facing off. Here you have it, the Finals of the Inaugural Combatants Cup!

Canalave Nightstalkers vs. Celestic Archfiends
Eliteknight V. Emi
Snorby V. DaveTheFishGuy
Biggggg5 V. Talon87




The Finals will, of course, last for 1 week. This round will end at 12:01 AM (GMT -4 / Eastern Standard Time) on Friday, September 30th. There will be no exceptions, and no extensions.

Good luck!

Confirming.

That last match was considerably more one-sided than it appears and I'm sorry for the M-Sally sweep.

It's all up to you, Talon!

Well, I'd better get this in before the final match, hadn't I.

The fourth and final regular season award is, of course for the most valuable player, or MVP. The award is designed for the player who provided the most value to his or her team and, more likely than not, led them to success. It is not the "Best Player" award. That would go simply to the player with the best record. This award takes into account a combination of record, strength of schedule, team record in weeks played, and effect on team record.

We had a couple of candidates for this award, and I could make an extremely compelling argument for all three of them. the winner of this award compiled a 3(2)-0 record, picking up three straight wins via battle after their team lost in week 1, quickly helping to vault the team to first place in their division, where they stayed for the remainder of the season. It is also worth noting that, in this player's three individual matches, they once again only lost a single battle. This player was essentially the lightning rod that their team rallied around, and for these reasons you 2016 TCC MVP is

Haha, you guys are awesome! I didn't expect to get an award, esp since I technically didn't even play two rounds properly (sorry Crys!)

I'm sorry you captains were fighting to pick me, but that being said I'm glad I ended up on the team with an Altaria for a mascot xd I'm just a simple bird that plays a loooooooooooooot of PS when I'm in class ^^;

Thanks for holding this tournament Kots! Thanks for being a great captain Lost, and thanks to all my opponents who gave me such lovely battles :> Also thanks to Extroph for making all this sweet ass art \o/

Confirming. Both matches felt extremely close. I didn't feel like I had a solid answer for Milotic either time but we would have gone to a third game if Krook didn't tank that scald like a champ. GG Talon and the rest of the Archfiends.

Well folks, there you have it! It came down to the wire, but Biggggg5 and the rest of the Canalave Nightstalkers have claimed their title as the winners of what will hopefully be the first of a long tradition of Combatants Cups here on UPN! Congratulations!

Spoiler: show





In addition to these pins that you can use in your signatures or avis or whathaveyou, don't forget that our good friend Jerichi approved a nice RP-related prize! That's right, the five of you can have your choice of either 5 Service Points (for those of you that fancy ASB) or 2 Shards (for the WF fanatics). Remember, you get one or the other, not both. Just post in the appropriate thread to claim your prize.


I want to give a huge thank you to everyone for participating in this tournament. Back when I was in Serebii comp, running tournaments like this was pretty much my favorite thing to do, as I was never really good at the whole "battling" thing. It's especially good for me now, as I have a lot going on and it's a fairly low-effort thing to do, hosting tournaments. I have a plethora of tournaments to pick from, so I plan on introducing the UPN community to at least a couple of them (although I am going to try not to overload everyone). That said, the next one will be starting in just a few days purely because it has to align with something else that's coming soon, so I hope to see a lot of you signing up for that as well!



Until next time!

Well, this is nothing short of awesome. I don't want to say too much here, but I absolutely want to thank Kots for deciding to run TCC over here- I missed it so much since comp died! ;-;

Additionally, I want to give shoutouts to everyone on my team. All of you contributed to this win in a big way (much more than me, with my pathetic record in the early season of 1 win, 3 losses ;-;), and you guys deserve loads of credit for it. We barely scraped our way into the playoffs, but we took on the best team in the league, won, and then beat the Archfiends who had thoroughly trounced us in the early season for the gold, and that's all because you guys fuckin' rocked it! I'll spoiler the shoutouts for people who don't want to read them, though:

Spoiler: show
First off, Deh. Unfortunately, you didn't get the opportunity to play very much, but your victory over the Floraroma Honeybees' RMG propelled us to defeat a team that looked like they would be a threat to our ability to make playoffs early on. Thank you for your contribution to the team~

Next, a shoutout to Crys. While you might have dropped off in activity toward the end of the tour, to the point where I couldn't even rightfully include you in the finals, you hardly ever lost, only losing a single matchup outright. Your wins in the earlier parts of the season were the backbone that carried us to the playoffs in the first place, and you deserve loads of credit for that. Thanks, Crys!

Now it's EK's turn. Some people were surprised that I picked you over some of the other people from Comp that I could have nabbed, but I knew for certain that I had picked right. And boy, did you prove the people who doubted you wrong. You were instrumental in both matchups against the Wisps, given you helped shoulder the burden when Crys's activity took a nosedive. Without your twin defeats of Roto, we wouldn't have beaten the best team in the tournament once, much less twice. You might have lost in the finals, but nobody can be blamed for losing to a Mega Salamence. Don't let it get ya down, bro. Thanks a million!

Last but by no means least, Biggles. Early in the season, you helped buoy the Nightstalkers to two wins: One over the Honeybees, but perhaps most importantly your activity allowed us to overcome the Mahogany Marauders and avoid allowing Connor to relish in a victory :P. In all seriousness, had we lost those two matchups we would not have made the playoffs most likely, and neither could have been won without you. I don't know why I kept you on the bench for so long afterward, but it's easily my biggest regret of the tour, because once I finally let you back in, boy, did you come out swinging. You topped one of the best battlers in the entire tournament, Talon, who prior to you had been trumped by only a single person all season. And you did it in just two games. Securing us the win where I reckon practically no one else, on our team or on any other, could have, our victory in the finals belongs to you more than anybody else, Biggles.


I'll close this by giving my thanks to everybody in the tour for making this such an enjoyable experience, as well as reiterating my pride in the rest of the Nightstalkers for being so awesome.

I look forward to seeing all of you in future tournaments!~
