The Sinister Cup


October 1st - 31st

Announcing October's Global Cup: The Sinister Cup!

The Silph Arena's first global cup of Season 2 begins on October 1st! With it comes a new opportunity to prove your skill and climb the global and local leaderboards! The Sinister Cup - inspired by the spooky things that go bump in the night - follows the same basic rules as past Cups, with a few key differences. Here's what you need to know:

What Is the Sinister Cup?

Each month the Silph Arena holds a month-long Cup - a 'themed' PvP tournament - that provides tens of thousands of trainers around the world a specially-designed competitive challenge and a chance to prove they're the very best. The Silph Arena is the world's largest global network for ranked Pokemon GOTM tournament play.

During the Cup (October 1st - 31st), local Silph League communities host and record a special tournament using the free Silph.gg tools. Wins and losses in this local tournament affect your player rank on local and global leaderboards, earn you the Sinister Cup trophy for your Trophy Case, and may eventually even earn you an invitiation to compete at Regionals, and even the Continental or World Championships held at the end of the Season!

All players are welcome to compete, whether it's your first tournament or your hundredth! Find a local tournament near you on the Tournament Map!

The Sinister Cup Rules

The Sinister Cup has a few special rules (designed to provide added challenge and fun) that differ from standard PvP combat in Pokemon GO:

  • Competitors will bring a team of 6 Pokemon (and register them before the tournament begins). All battle parties used must be comprised of these 6 Pokemon.
  • Matches are played in Great League: only Pokemon up to 1500 CP are permitted in the Cup.
  • Only Pokemon with at least one of the following types are permitted: Ghost, Psychic, Steel, Fighting.
  • All species with at least one of the four allowed types are permitted except: Mythical Pokémon, Skarmory, Hypno, and any Pokémon with Dark Typing (including dual types).
  • Only one of each Pokemon species is permitted on your team of 6. (No species duplicates!)
  • Vo všetkých ostatných prípadoch budú dodržané pravidlá arény .

Take a moment to review the Arena Rules linked above. The rules have been updated for Season 2, make sure you're familiar with all of the changes!

Ako súťažiť

Registration for the October Cup will become available to local community leaders on September 17th - but Sinister Cups cannot begin until October 1st and must be concluded by October 31st. Find a Cup tournament near you via the Tournament Map!

Často kladené otázky

Otázky vedúcich komunity:

How Do I Host a Sinister Cup Tournament in My Community?

Jednoducho sa prihláste na účet Silph.gg s autorizovaným účtom lídra komunity a vytvorte pohárový turnaj na stránke spravovanie komunít. Dostanete adresu URL RSVP, ktorá bude zdieľaná s vašou komunitou a v deň turnaja bude pridať kód a potvrdiť registráciu vášho turnaja. Pre postup pri nastavení turnaja na stránke Silph.gg kliknite tu.

Ako sa stanem oprávneným organizátorom turnajov na Silph.gg?

Všetci komunitní administrátori Silph League Discord sa jednoducho potrebujú pridať ako ,,Tournament Admin" cez Discord @SilphRoad bot:

  • Na Discorde použite príkaz @SilphRoad add-tournament-admin @username#0000 vo vašom kanáli # silph-league . (Možno budete musieť odhlásiť a znova prihlásiť do Silph.gg!)

Telegramový kanál a skupina admins sú automaticky autorizované na Silph.gg.

Can I host multiple Sinister Cups in my community in October?

Yes. However, only one Cup each month will have significant impact on each participant's Global Ranking. Participants may choose at the start of a Cup if they want that specific Cup to be weighted more heavily than the others.

Does the Sinister Cup have to be hosted on a specific date?

Any date between October 1 and October 31, 2019 is a valid date to hold your community's Sinister Cup. The tournament registration page will not allow registering your Cup for an invalid date or time - so as long as you are able to create your tournament on Silph.gg, you will know it is set for a valid date. Remember, it must be concluded by the end of October 31st to count for rank!

I am a community leader of a Facebook Group (or other platform like Slack, Line, etc). How do I host the Sinister Cup for my community?

The Arena team is working quickly to enable non-Discord/Telegram communities to host the Cup. Stay tuned for news on this front!

Otázky účastníkov:

How Do I Join a Sinister Cup Tournament in My Community?

Nájdite si lokálny pohár organizovaný komunitou blízko vás pomocou Tournament Map a prečítajte si podrobnosti o Evente a na stránke RSVP Eventu!

Ako dôležité sú Monthly Cups pre moju pozíciu hráča?

Veľmi. Drvivá väčšina poradia hráčov v aréne je odvodená z výkonov v globálnych štandardizovaných pohároch. (Je to preto, že poháre umožňujú Aréne sledovať rovnaké kontrolované scenáre pre každého hráča!)

Why is the Sinister Cup (and all non-Cup ranked tournaments) played in Great League?

Great liga (max 1500cp) ponúka rozmanité, nové ihrisko s mnohými možnosťami pre kreatívne, konkurenčné tímy. Umožňuje sa tiež viac zapájať hráčom, ktorý nemajú toľko skúseností, do turnajov na stretnutiach bez toho, aby boli úplne neschopní súťažiť s trénermi úrovne 40, ktorí často súťažia Legendárnymi Pokémonmi na úrovni 40. Great liga takisto výrazne nezvýhodňuje tých, ktorí manipulujú s GPS (,,spoof"), aby obišli herné mechaniky a získali neprijateľné výhody.

Kde sa môžem dozvedieť viac o globálnom hodnotení hráčov?
