Do you want to be the very best? Fancy yourself an expert of a certain type? Want to be the next Brock, Misty or Lance? The CardBoard Warriors leaderboard tracks the progress of all our tournament participants and determines who is the very best of each type.
The inagural season of the Gym Leader Challenge Leaderboard will extend weekly through September 21st. We have one time slot per region, with European tournaments taking place at 7:00 PM GMT/UTC +0, and Americas tournaments taking place at 8:00 PM EDT/UTC -4. Make sure to get in all the points you can prior to the Season Finale!
The season finals will be comprised of two tournaments, one per region. Each tournament will take place on September 28th in the standard time slot for that region. The tournament is invitation only. In order to receive an invitation, you must place at the top of a type leaderboard or the top of the overall leaderboard. The overall leader will get to choose the type they play in the finals, but the type leaders will have to play that type during the tournament. If you lead more than one type, you will play the type that you have the most points in, and the second place gym leader will play in your stead. These rules provide some room to gain an edge by playing less popular types in order to make it into the finals.
The finals will be a 4 round swiss tournament with an Elite 4 top cut, and a champion that moves on to play against the other region's champion on October 1st.
The leaderboard tracks scoring through tournament points earned in our weekly Wednesday Night GLC tournaments. Participants earn 3 points for a win and 1 point for a draw. If you drop from a tournament, you stop gaining points towards the leaderboard, so stay in and grind those points!
We will have both a European friendly leaderboard, and a North and South American friendly leaderboard. Every two weeks, participants get a shot to earn points for one of the leaderboards. However, there is nothing stopping you from topping both charts!
In addition, we will roll out an all-time leaderboard after the first season completes. Top one of the type leaderboards and win a tournament, and you will enter our Hall of Fame! Hall of Fame entrants will earn a gym badge of their type and live forever in GLC lore.
