Accomplishments 2nd place Hartford Regionals 2017

Bio I am signing up to fill a supportive role for any team that wants to drop 3k on a dedicated and experienced player assistant. I'm by no means the most accomplished or best player on this list, and as such I would expect only to see actual tournament play if I was needed to sub in. Team tours are a wonderful experience and I greatly enjoy filling a more supportive role - I have extensive experience with similar positions from Smogon tours before my recently-ended hiatus, having been a team manager in 1v1 World Cup and 1v1 Premier League in 2020. During those tours, I was a constant supportive presence helping with teambuilding, scouting, improving mental, match prep, overall cheerleading, and more; and I hope to fill many of those same roles again for this tournament. Drop 3k on a support - your players will thank you for it come playoffs.

2024 - 4 PC wins, 2 runner ups.

NPA 6/7 Cruisers! I’m probably forgetting some accomplishments, but generally I’ve had some strong showings.

Bio I’m currently sitting at 192/500 CP with Portland coming up, I’m hoping for a good enough showing there to warrant being so considered for NPA since it’s been a while since I’ve had any significant results.

I’m very committed to getting a worlds invite again this year, I know NPA will give me an opportunity to connect and network with other top players. I have been going to almost every local since they were allowed to be sanctioned again. I also used to staff and the website trainer tower and would regularly host online grassroots as a tournament organizer before they stopped operating.

I’m actively and often practicing on BO3 ladder and against other top players in my favorite discord servers. I also manage the VGC group on Facebook, so I’m very involved in the community. I just want to improve at the game and share my knowledge that I’ve built so far with others! I’m very motivating and always looking for practice games and offering team critiques.

Accomplishments Won and Top 4 PCs in the past month, 6-3 London Open, 5-4 in a few other regionals after making solid 3-0/4-1 starts. Couple 2nd places in UK based VGC Draft League (UKITT).

Bio Hey! I am Jack and/or Salad and I've played VGC since the start of sw/sh and singles for a very long time. I think that I'm an incredibly positive and hardworking person when it comes to team drafts. I have lots of experience in the UK ones and I'm starting to find my rhythm when it comes to doing well in tournaments both online and in person.

I will put the maximum effort in for the team, whether it be building, scouting, bo3 practice, and just being active as a team member. Pick me up as one of your free 3000s ;).
