All players must sign up if they wish to play in the Database Premier League. It is important to note that the Database Premier League is an 11 week event and that the activity level of a player is significant. Do not sign up to play for a team if you do not intend to see the tournament through to the end. This includes maintaining a competitive attitude if your team is already eliminated from playoff contention. You never know whether or not winning your end-season matches will make you a more valued player next season, so even if your team isn’t necessarily in the playoff picture anymore, there’s always value in playing your best. Failure to complete matches in a timely manner consistently may result in being barred from entering the Database Premier League in future seasons.

The format for signing up to play in the Database Premier League is as follows.

Player Name: JCM
Tiers Played: XY OU / XY Uber / XY UU / BW NU /
Timezone : GMT -5 (CDT)
Significant Time Missed?: Yes, (2 weeks in January, exams)
The sign-up list will then be taken and sorted into appropriate lists for each of the 6 metagames.

Guidelines for Players:

  • DO NOT signup if you cannot commit to the entire season, which will run from April until the beginning of July. If you know in advance that you will be gone for a significant period of time (such as for exams, vacation, etc.) then PLEASE make note of it in your post so managers can plan accordingly. If I hear that any player knew in advance they would be gone for a significant period of time and did not notify the League in advance then action WILL be taken in future DBPLs and potentially all tournaments.

Signups will last until March 31, 11:59 PM EST.

Honestly, you guys seem to forget that as the host, I do have a life as well. Exams, girlfriends, friends and ice hockey. I decided to postpone this for after the exams, probably during summer when people will be free, but if you don't respect my decision and my life, you can just delete everything and drop out lol.
This being said, the DBPL Bot IS ready, but I'm postponing this. Feel free to come back in, also nobody is forcing you to hang around in the chat waiting for me lol.
Thought I'd better warn ya, starting from about a week from now I will be inactive due to having no internet most of the time. This may last for as long as until about June 6th, but I'll pop in from time to time when I get internet so I won't be completely inactive.
Will this ever start?
doubt it

Player Name: Nindzya

Tiers played: X/Y Ubers, X/Y UU.

Timezone: UTC-7.

Times missed: 4/20. (Kidding. I'll still be on.)

Loving this idea. I'm a pretty active fellow around here. I'm pretty good at management and finances, plus a well experienced battler. So I'd like to be a manager.

answered Mar 18, 2014 by Ninja
You don't manage a tier, you manage a team.
A team of that is what I'm getting at.
Do you even know how this works? Your team isn't uniquely composed of XY Uber players... Go read the introduction thread please...
He means he wants to manage a team of XY players :P
He didn't mean that lol, and it's impossible, you must draft players that play all the following tiers: two times  XY OU, XY UBERS, XY UU, XY DOUBLES, BW OU, BW NU, BW RU.
So the team needs to be able to play in all of the listed tiers, correct?
Yes, a manager will need to pick players in those tiers, and during the weeks, two teams will be paired against each other, and each player from the respective teams will face off in their respective teams.
Gdi. Ok, I misread. Anyways, I understand. But yeah, I'd still like to be a manager.
