Let me send you the challenge then. Showdown tends to disconnect me if I don't do anything in., like, half a minute. I got the last challenge request, but it disconnected me before I could do anything.
The round is approximately half-done but we only have half the results. Please organise a time with your opponents and complete your battles as quickly as possible.
It is currently Round 1. Round 1 will end in 6 days, 14 hours, and 39 minutes time, or once all replays have been submitted, whichever comes first.

Just a little over a day and a half left to get your battles in and we're still missing a result! Remember, if you don't get your results in in time, the player from your match to advance will be decided by coin-toss, unless you can prove to us that your opponent made no effort to organise a time.
It is currently Round 1. Round 1 will end in 1 day, 14 hours, 27 minutes or once all replays have been submitted, whichever comes first.

So sorry for the delay everybody, I went to sleep before update time and then my internet was being a butt.

The battles raged fierce and fast; no member of the tournament eager to draw undue attention to themselves with protracted affairs.
In the forested outskirts of RM, the first battle raged to its finish, a vicious three-headed dragon clashing with a blue-green titan.
“Now Mecha! Ice Punch!” the figure behind the Golurk commanded, prompting it to charge at Hydreigon, fists cloaked in a freezing energy. Hydreigon deftly dodged the punches however, weaving behind Mecha.
“Ice Fang!” its trainer commanded. Grabbing into the points on Mecha’s shoulders with its smaller side heads, Hydreigon sank the blue, glowing fangs of its central head into Mecha’s neck, who cried out in pain.
“Gyro Ball!” Powering through the pain, Mecha began to rotate on its axis, rapidly building up speed. Hydreigon’s teeth quickly lost purchase, eventually being thrown off the Golurk by the centrifugal force. Seizing the opportunity, Mecha threw its arms out into a T-pose, its fists glowing in orange energy that weaved together into a ring around its body, and slammed into Hydreigon.
“Hydro Pump!” Hydreigon took aim at Mecha with all three heads, the Golurk off-balance briefly as it attempted to right itself after its spin. Barely seconds after re-obtaining its bearings however, the blue spheres that had been gathering in Hydreigon’s mouths exploded into a torrent of water, blasting Mecha full-force. Bringing its arms up in front of its face, Mecha struggled against the flow, attempting to gain ground, its eyes and markings slowly dimming as it weakened.
“You’ll never make it like that Mecha!” its trainer shouted, “You’ll have to slip through with Phantom Force!” Halting its advance, its light dimming ever further, Mecha formed a shadowy portal behind it and immediately stopped struggling, allowing the water pressure to force it straight into the portal, which promptly closed. Hydreigon closed all three mouths and looked around in almost all directions at once alongside its trainer. A few moments later, Mecha fell from another portal, formed above its former position. But it wasn’t an attack. Mecha simply fell, apparently having lost consciousness across dimensions. As Mecha lay on the ground, motionless, its trainer fell to her knees. Her last Pokemon having fallen, she had no chance to continue.
“No…” She muttered under her breath. “Space… Feenie… This was the only thing keeping him away from them…”

As her opponent watched on, the grin that had spread across his face at his victory began to waver. He’d joined up for kicks and a bit of revenge, but he’d never really thought about the kind of consequences that would create for people. But now, watching the display in front of him…
“Those were the terms... Fight for him and they'll be ok... But I lost... Now what's going to happen to them...” She continued to mutter to herself, tears forming in her eyes. Her opponent exchanged a sad glance with his Hydreigon, unsure about how to continue, before turning away and walking back to his home, leaving FinalArcadia with her thoughts.
“Now Edgeworth, Brave Bird!” The Decidueye flying above the ocean dove towards the Incineroar standing on the docks, its body cloaked in blue flames. Incineroar took the brunt of the attack, but grabbed hold of Edgeworth’s wings and body, locking the owl in its grip.
“Heat Crash, Khan!” Using Edgeworth’s own momentum against it, Khan twisted itself around to throw Edgeworth into the ground behind it. Striking a brief pose for his audience (which consisted only of his trainer, their opponent, and the Decidueye face-down on the pavement) Khan surrounded its body with flames before dropping onto Edgeworth, bringing its shoulder down hard on the owl’s midsection. Cringing from the pain, Edgeworth kicked out its talon from underneath Khan, raking its claws across its leg. The momentary flinch from Khan at this attack gave Edgeworth the chance to break out from underneath and get away.
“On top of the mast, Edgeworth! Spirit Shackle!” Taking to the skies, Edgeworth flew towards one of the boats moored nearby and landed on top of the mast as directed. Balancing on a single foot, Edgeworth plucked an arrow from its wing with one hand, and drew one of its vines into a bowstring with the other. Closing one eye for better aim, Edgeworth pulled back its arrow, locked onto its target, and let loose. Khan sidestepped the arrow, which embedded itself firmly in the ground, right through Kahn’s shadow.
“Khan, we can’t just let it keep sniping at you like that!” Khan’s trainer called. “You’ll have to get on the boat and fight it! We’ll… Deal with the damages later.” Khan nodded and dashed towards the boat. Or, well, it would have, if it wasn’t firmly rooted to the spot, unable to move from the arrow pinning its shadow in place. Flashing a grin from beneath their hood, Edgeworth’s trainer raised her hand, revealing a shining band around her wrist.
“The raw power of a spectre!” She declared. Striking a series of poses, the band on her wrist began to glow with a purple energy, which, at the end of her dance, flowed through the air and into Edgeworth. Floating slightly above the mast as it was bathed in the purple energy, Edgeworth flared its wings, shaking loose over a dozen arrows, which formed an arc above its head.
“Death by a thousand cuts! SINISTER ARROW RAID!” Edgeworth threw its wings forward, sending the rain of arrows down towards Khan, before diving alongside them.
“Darkest Lariat!” Khan’s trainer shouted, sweating bullets. Khan began spinning in place, ever faster as it gradually grew into a small cyclone of dark energy. As the arrows reached their target, several were deflected by the force of the spin, flying in all directions. Some, however, struck true, embedding themselves in the spinning tiger. The instant Edgeworth entered range for the final blow of the attack, Khan brought its arm upwards, slamming its forearm into Edgeworth’s neck, causing a mighty explosion as the two attacks connected. As the dust cleared, both Pokemon could be seen, incredibly shaky on their feet. A few moments later, Edgeworth collapsed forward, as Khan remained, hands on its knees.
“Oh, thank god.” Khan’s trainer said as he let out a sigh of relief. A beam of red light struck Edgeworth. He looked over to see his opponent returning the Pokemon to its nest ball, the wind from the explosion having blown her hood off of her head.
Max1996 has lost their battle!
Hi there Max1996, you are Doctor Floptopus!
You’re a local doctor for the Fun and Games section, ensuring that nobody is ever seriously harmed. You’ve made several appearances over the course of the BMU, typically when somebody is in need of medical attention for one reason or another.
You decided to join up with MCH out of an odd sense of compassion. You hate seeing the injured people coming through your hospital, particularly after MCH’s last endeavour. You figure you couldn’t stop him on your own, but if you’re able to get by his side, you could hopefully twist things to minimise harm to others.

“Flop?” He said. “But, why? You’ve been an upstanding user for years. Why this?”
“Oh, come off it.” She snapped back. “You know as well as I do that people always wind up hurt throughout these things. I can’t do anything from the outside except fix people after they’ve been hurt. I couldn’t do anything to stop it beforehand unless I did this.” She then proceeded to narrow her eyes at her opponent. “But what about you?” She asked. “Don’t think I can’t tell. This is going to wind up with people getting hurt and you could stop this before it even starts. Go ahead, tell me I'm wrong." Her opponent was silent. "You’re putting a lot of people in danger for… Whatever this is. So I suggest you take a good long think about what you’re doing here.” Flop said as she turned and walked away, leaving her opponent behind. Her opponent crossed his arms, it was true that he was taking a risk, but it'd be worth it for the payoff, right?
Meanwhile, in the RM warehouse district, a Galvantula crawled along the walls of the alleyways between warehouses, dodging globs of poison launched at it by an Alolan Muk on the ground.
“Peter, Discharge!” Electricity sparked across the Galvantula’s fuzz for a moment before bolts of lightning shot off in all directions, lighting up the area. Shifting its amorphous body from side-to-side, Alolan Muk evaded most bolts, but received a few glancing blows.
“Sludge Wave, Maxim!” The Alolan Muk threw its arms into the air before slamming them down onto the ground, sending a torrent of purple poison flying towards Peter, who simply leapt across to the wall on the other side of the alley.
“Leech Life!” Peter leapt from the wall on top of Maxim and sunk its fangs deep into its body, causing Maxim to roar in pain.
“Brutal Swing!” Bucking the spider off of its back, Maxim turned to face Peter, who had wound up on the ground, and swung its arms draped in black energy into Peter’s body, sending it flying. “Now, follow with Moonblast!” As Maxim extended its hand outward, a bright pink sphere formed in its palm before being launched towards the prone form of Peter, striking true.
“Bug Buzz, Peter!” Shaking its body, peter released several green soundwaves which stuck Maxim, causing it to cover its head in pain. “Quick, Bounce!” Peter sprung into the air. At the apex of its jump, it angled itself downwards, pointing its front legs straight down, dropping directly towards Maxim.
“Come on Maxim, Fire Blast!” Shaking off the grogginess from the Bug Buzz, Maxim turned its face upwards toward the electrical spider dropping down on it. Building a ball of fire in its mouth, it released the attack moments before Peter’s impact in a brilliant blast of flame. As the flame cleared, all that remained was Maxim “standing” triumphant next to a charred Galvantula.
“Well,” Maxim’s trainer said, “Looks like you just got trolled pretty hard there.”
“Dammit.” His opponent said. “No how am I gonna start trouble?”
“Well, I got a few ideas.”
“How am I gonna start trouble without instantly getting caught.” Peter’s trainer said with a glare.
“Oh, I’m sure there’s still plenty of ways.” Maxim’s trainer said, shrugging as he walked off with Maxim in tow. “Try to have some fun figuring them out, won’t you?”
“Hmph. Weirdo.” Peter’s trainer said as she returned him to his Net Ball. “Buuuuut… Maybe a useful weirdo…”
Acrobatic Crobat has lost their battle!
Hi there Acrobatic Crobat, you are HumanDawn!
A famed mafia player from an age long past, you are very skilled, but these days you have retired. That being said, nothing gets that itch better than some mayhem, and what better way to do it than help MCH start a war against the F&G mods? With your trusty team, your strategic mind, and your love for games like Pokemon and Fire Emblem, nothing can stop you from getting that General role!
Your Pokemon are themed off games you played, in this case Mafia/Werewolf, Fire Emblem Fates, and Marvel's Spider Man for PS4.

“Spike, Dragon Rush!” The dark green Dragonite dived towards its opponent in the wasteland that was the dead threads of the Fun and Games section, not having seen activity in months. Spike’s tail glowed a deep royal blue as it swung towards the Roserade standing before it.
“Toxic, Rose!” The Roserade front-flipped as the tail passed underneath it. Landing on its hands, Rose kicked backwards with its foot, glowing a bright purple. Jamming the foot into Spike’s side, a purple patch blossoming around the impact site.
“Fire Punch!” Whirling around, Spike punched Rose in the face, its fist wrapped in flames.
“Dazzling Gleam!” Striking a pose, a brilliant light flashed from its body, staggering and blinding Spike. “Follow up! Petal Dance!” Shaking its bouquet hands like maracas a few times, red and blue petals were shook loose and hung in the air around Rose. It then began to pirouette, spinning faster and faster around its axis, whipping the petals in the air – as well as additional petals flying out from its bouquets the entire time – into a cyclone of red and blue. Leaping forwards, Rose drew the cyclone towards Spike, buffeting the Dragonite over and over with petals. Eventually, the cyclone died down, the petals slowly falling to the ground. Rose could be seen among the petals, teetering slightly as she had become dizzy from spinning too much.
“Sky Drop, Spike!” Seizing the opportunity, Spike flew over and grabbed Rose under the arms before soaring high into the air. At the apex of its flight, Spike performed a small loop and dived.
“Rose, break out! Venoshock!” Gathering its senses, Rose placed its bouquets on Spike’s sides and released a thick purple liquid. As the liquid soaked into Spike’s skin, it spread and covered the purple spot that had appeared and steadily grown since Rose had poisoned it. Spike roared in pain and cringed such that it released its grip on Rose and lost tension in its wings, causing it to spiral into freefall rather than controlled descent. With neither one able to right themselves, due to either too much pain or a complete lack of wings, both impacted the ground with great force. As the dust cleared, both combatants struggled to their feet, neither one willing to give up the battle just yet.
“Fire Punch!” Spike rushed forward, both fists wrapped in flame.
“Protect!” Bringing its arms in front of its face, Rose summoned a bright green dome around itself. Spike pounded on the dome over and over with its blazing fists. Rose struggled to maintain the barrier; effort obvious on its face. Spike raised both flaming fists above its head together, intent to shatter the barrier keeping it from its opponent, before all focus faded from its eyes completely. Flames on its fists going out, Spike closed its eyes and slumped forward onto the barrier, having succumbed to the poison.
“Damn it!” Spike’s trainer said, punching the side of one of the abandoned buildings in frustration. “This was my chance!”
“Now, now, Soulmaster,” His opponent said, “Complaining is unbecoming.”
Chibighost has lost their battle!
Hi there, Chibighost, you are Soulmaster!
A long-time user of both TWR and the forums as a whole, your first appearance in the BMU was a bit part during TWR Season ’17 Mafia, where you were one of the people manipulating the outbreak of the Elieson Virus. You also appeared at the end of Prank War Mafia, about to spray every assembled user with water from the fountain. But was this really as innocent as it appeared..?
You’ve decided to join up with MCH out of a twisted sense of nostalgia. You’re not particularly happy with the way TWR has developed, and would like to see it shift back into something closer to what you remember. Something you hope to accomplish by MCH’s side.

“You’re part of the problem, you know!” Soulmaster whirled on his opponent. “You’ve been here almost as long as I have! You’ve let this happen!”
“Let me tell you a little secret, Soulmaster.” His opponent said, nonchalantly returning Rose to her Heal Ball. “First off, if I’ve let this place change in a way you don’t like, then so have you, because I’ve not seen you make many efforts to stop things either.” Soulmaster crossed his arms and looked away. “Secondly, I really don’t care about your problems. Constant change is a goal for people like me, our reason for being. I’m here for pretty much the exact opposite reason as you, so, again, don’t expect me to care. Ciao!” She said, waving back as she walked back to the populated areas.
There was no time for rest once the battles had been completed. Not intending to waste time and allow any sore losers to potentially blow the whistle on the entire arrangement, the next round had been scheduled for the very next night. The remaining competitors received their messages as before, and went on for Round 2.
It is now Round 2. Round 2 will end in 2 weeks time, or once all replays have been submitted, whichever comes first.
