    Significant time missed: (here you list time that you can't play for the duration of the tournament), i.e holidays, exams etc.) Maybe Dallas Regionals Weekend
    Your first VGC format: 2013
    Notable results: Cut some 2014 and 2015 Regionals, Day 2 2015 Nationals
    Why a manager should draft you: I did really well in the 2015 circuit, which is similar to 2018, and I'm laddering pretty well now on PS to meet almost all criterion for all available tryouts; I have also been in the NPA for 4 straight NPA's and was a pooched 10k draftee last season for the Celadon Gamblers

    I drew both in paint.net. The first is a pixel art emote for my twitch channel, and is technically my favorite Pokemon; the second probably more fits the aesthetic of what people are looking for and is my 7th gen favorite Pokemon

    Time zone in GMT:
    GMT-8, until the spring shift to PST (then I’ll be GMT-7)
    Significant time missed: No explicit time conflicts, but I am a full-time student and a residence advisor, which means I have two priorities over pokemon. I can give time for talking with a team and playing a match each week, but I can’t guarantee there won’t be a week or two when I need some time to work on school.
    Your first VGC format:
    2011 (archeops + timid amoonguss was actually a really cool TR counter!)
    Notable results:


    2013 world champion, Seniors Division

    2015 5th place US Nationals, Masters Division

    2017 Regionals (Oregon, Seattle, Vancouver): 4th, 2nd, 5th


    Why a manager should draft you:


    As far as I understand it, the goal of NPA is not to win bragging rights but to coordinate improvement (through practice, teambuilding, etc) with other members of the team (although this is clearly in service of winning). To the extent to which your goals as a manager align with this, you should consider drafting me – I bring some ideas about how the design cycle can be an effective framework for Pokemon, and want to develop my ability to leverage teambuilding and practicing in a group setting.

    I’m probably a good player to have on the team if the team is able to provide some support for mentality, particularly how to manage games 2 and 3 of a best of 3, but also mentality in terms of effective practice, preparation for a match, and (not as important for NPA, but something I hope to gain from the team this year) managing mental state in a tournament context.

    Time zone in GMT:

    US Eastern timezone, which I believe is GMT -5
    Significant time missed: (here you list time that you can't play for the duration of the tournament), i.e holidays, exams etc.):

    none
    Your first VGC format:

    Technically 2010, I started playing/practicing online in 2011, and started going to more than 1-2 events per year in 2016
    Notable results:

    - I top cut both the Fort Wayne and Hartford regionals this season, Hartford using Lillikoal and going 2/5 on Sleep Powder for the entire event
    - I've top cut 8 of the 9 MSSs I've ever attended
    - I lost a PC this season in this 'notable' fashion: https://twitter.com/twitter/statuses/924425970710384640
    - I've built teams for my younger brother that got 5th at nationals and 10th at worlds in 2010 (juniors) and 13th at nationals in 2012 (seniors)
    Why a manager should draft you:

    I think I have finally proven that I am capable of achieving solid results individually this season, after way too many bubbles in the past. I am definitely looking to become more involved in the community now - I get a lot of value out of both teaching and learning from other people and think I can (hopefully!) offer perspectives on team building/battling/mentality/even non pokemon life things that could help make a team more successful.

    Time zone in GMT: GMT+11 (this will switch back to +10 in finals week as daylight savings will end)
    Significant time missed: Maybe an IC or Regionals weekend here and there, otherwise N/A
    Your first VGC format: I started on the weird mutation that was VGC2011 Wonder Launcher no Team Preview that happened here. VGC2012 onwards were played proper
    Notable results:
    Couple of top cut PC finishes in 2017
    Top 8 Melbourne Regionals 2016

    Why a manager should draft you:

    So normally I don't sign up for these things thinking I won't get picked... thing is, I really want to make a hard push to improve myself this year. One can't really do that alone. What I can offer you is someone who is a cheaper pick despite being around a while, but still easy going and friendly enough to fit in with the rest of your team. I've got good availability despite the awkward timezone due to my lack of other obligations. Eager to make a lot more friends in the wider community and help each other do our best. I'm comfortable asking questions about teams and plays in order to understand more and develop stronger skills.
    I don't mind a bit of banter and can shoot back just as well.

    i also have a modded 3ds for streamerino wahey

    Due to the fact that I've been largely preparing for Brisbane Regionals next week, I haven't played much VGC2018 yet. However I will be picking it up this month and adding/editing results to this post later, so please check back closer to draft signups closing!

    If you want to have more of a chat DM me on Twitter @CobalteVGC

    in the interest of reaching the true feel of an ms paint submission, i have drawn my piece using the bed as a mousepad and without using undo. i title it:

    though game freak buffed me
    i'm forever a niche pick

    Notable results:
    11-3 tenth Place London IC 2017
    I didn't miss a top cut since April 2017.
    319 CP by now.

    Why a manager should draft you:
    I'm getting used to play against top players( Dave Cognetta ,Michele Gavelli ,Andrea Di Francesco and so in...) , maybe they got better knowledge and game Plan but i've noticed that i can win against them thanks to my capacity of read my opponent playstyle and think outside the box .
    I'm a player of Gold Experience team, that help me to continue to train myself challenging great players every week.

    Significant time missed: (here you list time that you can't play for the duration of the tournament), i.e holidays, exams etc.): Mostly during the afternoon, from 2PM to 6-7PM from Monday to Friday but if needed I can play even in these hours
    Your first VGC format: Late 2015
    Notable results:
    - TOP 8 Treviso Special Event
    - TOP 8 June 2016 International Challenge
    - TOP 16 April 2017 International Challenge
    - Worlds 2016 D1 qualified
    - Minor MSS/PC cuts and win

    Why a manager should draft you:
    Though I didn't accomplish much in real life events, online laddering and tournaments is where I shine, I cutted Battlespot and Showdown ladder multiple times both in 16 and in 17. I'm also good at group teambuilding and laddering and at building counterteams. I see NPA as a really good opportunity to improve myself as a player in a stimulating and challenging environment.

    Why a manager should draft you: they shouldn't. Well, jokes aside, I'm able to complain about every single thing, I can do rng abuse pretty well and I can make it work sometimes during battles being able to steal games in a disgusting way. I also have 4 cats and I can win a game if I'm lucky enough.

    Significant time missed: I might not be able to play at certain hours because of exams, but I should still be able to play most times.

    Notable results: I started playing this year and made some great results like 6-0 at my first MSS. I went 5-4 at London this year, but I have not been to a lot more notable tournaments.
    Why a manager should draft you: I'm a really active person, and I love to work with teammates. I'm also really motivated to play on a team style event. If you draft me, I'll play my best for my team and do the best I can to help others even when I'm not playing for the week.
