Hi! Welcome to the Tier Shift Kickoff! This is our first tour of the gen (sorry for the lateness), and also the first instance of a post-Home meta, so its almost guaranteed to be an extremely dynamic tournament. In addition, the winner of this tour will receive a Nitro Monthly gift as a prize. Good luck to those who enter, but more importantly, have fun!!​

Tournament Rules:
  • The tour is double elimination and sets will be best of 3. The winner will receive a gifted month of Nitro.
  • General tournament rules and regulations can be found here.
  • The banlist for this tournament can be found here.
  • If metagame changes occur during the middle of a round, they will take effect in the subsequent round.
  • Tier Shift as a meta is completely reliant on standard play, and is subject to their metagame changes as well. Therefore, all games must take place on SmogTours! Sets played on the normal Showdown server must be replayed, and repeat offenders will be disqualified.
  • Replays must be posted alongside the result. Repeat offenders will be disqualified.
  • Do not make baseless activity posts; get in contact with your opponent and report missed times / scheduling issues only.
Signups close on July 24th 2023, at 6:00AM (UTC+0), or earlier if we hit a good amount of signups.

Is there any way for me to play more tier shift games before the tournament begins?
You can join the tier shift discord
Join the Other Meta discord (I’m not apart of it, but I’m assuming there would be some players willing to battle)
Join the “Other Metas” room on showdown, they host tier shift tours and you can also ask people to play there.

won for r0 vs hidin gg
(given this is an extra round to everyone else would i please be given the exemption of not having to post replays for this single series?)
If you have the replays, I would greatly appreciate you posting them after you've played your R1 opponent
