Pet Battle League Season One
One Wild Team To Rule Them All

It’s finally here, our first pet battle league, brought to you by the “of the Pet Battle Forum” guild on Cenarion Circle and pvppetbattles.com.

Who is eligible to join this league? Anyone who loves PvP pet battling and enjoys some friendly competition. You do not have to be a member of the guild, you do not have to be a poster on pvppetbattles.com, but you will have to make an alliance toon on Cenarion Circle for the sake of convenince.

For season one we’re going to keep it a simple as possible. You get one team, comprised of three wild caught pets, with no duplicate pet families. You can interchange breeds and moves between battles, but not pets. Pets with different names but the same move set are not counted as the same pet.

The league will be a round robin format, where each participant plays every other participant twice. You can do both battles in one meeting, or you can choose a second time to meet up after the first has been completed. Points will be earned similar to a soccer league: 3 points for a win, 1 for a draw, 0 for a loss. Battles that last for more than 75 rounds can be ended by either player, which will result in a draw. Disconnects are considered a loss. Zepp and myself will settle disputes, but hopefully there will be none. Any disputes that can’t be settled will result in a draw.

After all of the matches have been played, the top four teams will enter a single elimination playoff mode, with 1st vs. 4th, 2nd vs. 3rd (numbers represent place in league table). Then a championship and a third place battle will take place.

The prizes are as follows:

1st - level 1 rare Servant Of Demidos
2nd - 1000 gold
3rd - 500 gold
4th - 100 gold

Prizes provided by Discodoggy.

I want to stress that this a friendly league. Please be kind when battling other participants.

About the guild: please don’t feel obligated to join for the sake of the tournament. If you would not have joined otherwise, then don’t. The requirements for joining the guild are a love of pet battles along with the desire and ability to be nice to your guild mates, with the emphasis placed on being nice. If guilds in general are not your thing, then don’t join. If you can’t be polite, don’t join.

How do you sign up? Make an alliance toon (preferably human if you are only using it for the league) on Cenarion Circle, send Discodoge in game mail with your team and a team name. I have already sent Zepp and Darmand my team so that I will not be able to make a counter team based on everyone else’s entries. I will list players as they enter, but I won’t list their teams until everyone has entered.

The sign-up period starts now, it will last until Thursday, January 7th at 11:00 pm PST. I will then post everyone’s teams. People will then have until Saturday, January 30th at 11:00 am PST to battle. A date/time will then be determined for the four playoff teams to battle.

The biggest problem that I foresee is people not being able to be on at the same time. Please make arrangements here in this thread on when and where to meet up. If a time is set and one person doesn’t show, then the no show will be considered a forfeit. If two people can’t decide on a time to meet, then this will result in a double forfeit (both lose). This is the part of the competition that I am least comfortable with, so if anyone has any better ideas then please share.

Finally, please do not sign up if you are not willing to make a commitment to battle many other players. If twenty people sign up, that means you will have to battle nineteen people twice, so thirty eight battles. Over the course of three weeks it shouldn’t be that hard to do.

Good luck and I look forward to your entries.

If I forgot anything important then please let me know.

I'm listing the names that people signed up with in game to avoid confusion when it comes time to battle.
Fortune favors the bold...
I'm beyond stoked for this. Thank you DD and anyone else from the guild that is helping to run this!
This is a super exciting announcement and brings a new depth to battling in the guild. Disco is the perfect guy to be heading up an undertaking of this magnitude as his dedication to PvP Pet battling is quite exceptional.

With the players themselves being responsible for arranging and completing their own battles, I would offer the advice to screenshot your Pet Battle Combat Log after each match. It provides you recourse if you do not notice a banned pet, a double family or the like while you are in the heat of battle. Also, it would provide Disco an excellent set of data when the dust has settled to report on what worked the most effectively.

Another piece of advice: to beat your opponent, understand your opponent. Luckily he has made a whole website about how to beat him! ; )

(Side note: Pandalfeet = Zepp, in case anyone did not know.)
So far three entrants, it looks like prizes for everyone!
It's Ulfbrecht, not Ullbrecht. Just for the record.
Signed up. God help me.
So sorry, I have it in my notes as Ulfbrect but for some unknown reason I changed it to Ullbrecht.

We are up to five participants.
I'm still trying to decide who to use. It's a big decision! haha

Is there a sorting option in Rematch that I don't know of that lists "wild" pets?

Try "Pet battles" as a source option as a starting point.
Just to be clear, by "wild pets" I should have said "wild caught" pets, meaning the pets that have little green paw icons on your mini-map that you have to throw a trap during the battle to capture.
The best way I've found to sort Rematch for wild-caught pets is Source>Pet Battles and Miscellaneous>Not Tradeable.
Got my entry in. This is Liwei, for those who frequent Disco's site. Just posting on the character I'm currently active with :)

Good luck to everyone and don't kick my butt too hard <3

Nice, that makes six.
Put me (Zepp) in the mix.
I'll give it a go. I can only battle weekends though unless people are on late at night.

Send me some in game mail with your team to sign up.

After I get your teams we will be up to ten people :)

There are still two more days to sign up, the more the merrier!
Um. Disco? I may need you to remind me what team I'm using. I've been trying a lot of them lately.
