Hey guys it's trainer5 and welcome to today's thread and today I just learnt that tournaments such as the new years tournament are made by players so i thought since the staff is so busy and are not paid for their work how about we start giving them a hand by making tournaments of our own! 
so the frequency is up to you guys a tournament can come maybe every 2 weeks anyway my point is when i logged in this morning i was so disappointed about how so few players were logged in my point is if the staff is too busy to make something there are so many of us lets try to help out Smile Smile Smile 

so maybe if your all in for it do you guys want us to make events of our own if you want more player made tournaments the please reply if you agree with me and lets give the staff less work and more free time 

also i'd like to say in my time here i feel like i really fit in when i joined i never expected to find such nice people so i will send or accept friend requests to the following people: pheonix heat,isguros,klay,amoney,,justme 1306 and shiny maril 

please no flame if you disagree with me please say it politely Undecided

so see you tomorow (i may have forgotten some people's names like someone's name began with an ''r'' but ill send him a friend request too

and akatosh

Because we as Staff are far too busy to officiate tournaments 24/7, and it would also harm the economy to give away prizes frequently, official PWO Tournaments ran by Staff are very rare. So we openly encourage the community to run their own tournaments with their own rules and prizes; and so long as the tournaments are conducted in a fair manner and the rules clearly communicated to all participants, we are perfectly happy to see them.

I am not entirely sure what your suggestion is here. You want to see players do tournaments on a more frequent basis? That would be up to the players themselves - while I agree it would be nice to see more competition in PWO, not everyone can afford to or has the time to run a tournament all the time. Having an interest always helps, though Smile

my point is that staff like you need some time to relax so at least one out of millions of us can make a tournament every two weeks but not the same people making tournaments but every two weeks a different person makes a tournament im trying to give the staff time to do more important things like making sevil and hoenn
anyway thanks for responding i never thought one of my posts would get attention from an admin

There's no official "guide" for making tournaments; and in general, it's up to the players to make up the rules. But here's a few tips on what you can think about:

Firstly, how do you want to do the tournament? Single elimination tournaments - where winners advance to the next round and losers leave the tournament - are the most common; though some people like to do best two out of three so that a loser gets a second chance. Less common are Round Robins, where everyone faces everyone else once and the winner is the most successful player - these are best suited to a smaller group, as the bigger they are, the longer they take.

Secondly, what is the point of the tournament? Is it just for fun, or do you want to offer a prize? If you want to do the latter, think about what you can reasonably afford to give away; and what might appeal to people the most to win. For bigger tournaments, you may want to consider runner-up prizes too; and it may help to have an entry fee so you get something back yourself (or you can use some of the money for the prizes).

Thirdly, it's important you set down rules. The most important rules are those that decide what kind of Pokémon you use. Do you want to set a minimum or maximum level? This may change the type of people who decide to join in - low-level tournaments may attract newer players; whereas high-level or no-limit tournaments usually attract more long-term players with stronger teams. You may also want to say that your tournament uses the "Species Clause", which is a rule requiring a team to be made up of different Pokémon, since no-one likes battling a team of the same Pokémon over and over.

Some other rules people like to use are:
- Sleep Clause. A player is disqualified if, at the end of a turn, one player has caused two or more of their opponent's Pokémon to be asleep at the same time, unless they had no choice. You can also do Freeze, Burn, Poison etc. clauses if you want to restrict these as well.
- Selfdestruct Clause. If a Pokémon uses SelfDestruct or Explosion when both players have just one Pokémon left, and both faint as a result, the user loses (instead of it being a draw).

(Someone can fill in more if I've missed any)

Be aware that the game doesn't enforce these rules itself; so you'll need to keep an eye on players, and maybe suggest people take screenshots if they feel an opponent may have cheated, so that you can check for yourself.

Once you've decided on your rules, all you have to do is post a topic on the Forum (preferably under User-created Events) advertising your tournament, explaining your rules, and decide when you want to do it and how many people you want to join in. Then just wait for entries Smile

Aside from what Phoenix has said, you could see if people will donate something to go towards the winner. I'm pretty sure people have been willing to in the past.

I'm going to make it later on I don't want to steal the spotlight from phoenix's tournament plus I don't know what the prize will be because many people want different things
