Hello everyone!

Garrison, ally side, will summon everyone.
Format as usual - three battles, till 2 wins.
Everyone rolls for the draft.
Everbody will play everyone.
Only one pet from each family.

All pets allowed except:

A tournament is a tournament, people should be able to bring whatever obtainable in game pets and breeds they like. By saying they can't is akin to stating that a sub rogue, holy pala, etc, etc can't be part of a 3v3 team.

1. I don't make the rules. Ban list is open, people who signed up wanted those pets banned.
2. I thought it was obvious - time constraints. It will take 2 hours for 10 contenders to battle it out. If people will play heal teams we won't have enough time.
3. Healing specs are not allowed in arena 2v2 skirmishes for a reason.

1+2: A good player should be skilled against all pets, not just some, people saying they don't want to play against this or that is just dumb. Bone Serpent was nerfed and yet people still crying that they don't want to meet it is kind of pathetic (imo).

3: Pets are played in 3v3 not 2v2, healers in 3v3 are allowed and not all the pets in the 'I don't want to meet' list are healers.

If people cba to set aside the time for a (serious) competition, they shouldn't bother signing up. People don't sign up for progress raids and say 'sorry, I can only play 90 mins'.
So? We had tournaments in the past with all pets allowed. For this one, people wanted to see some pets banned. I don’t understand what are you trying to convey.
Lswindrunner I think that was the old banned list.

I think the new one is (Please correct me if I'm wrong though Спиннинг)

Ban list:
-Broot+Blossoming Ancient+Singing Sunflower+Fozling
-Crawdad+Emperor Crab
-Twilight Clutch Sister

As you can see this list is comprised only of the Uber-Healing pets that could ruin the tournament with slow games (Imagine Healing vs Healing Team)

Other than that it looks like its just the clearly Broken TCS and the Emperor Crab on the list. The Emperor crab while not broken can solo certain teams so I think its reasonable to ban. However if you want that moveset in a P/P crab just choose the Spirebound Crab instead.

Would have been helpful for the OP to inc the newer banned list instead of the old one.

Sorry to disappoint, too much stuff to do atm.

However I will more than make up for it by soon posting the cleverest strategy that anyone in the world has ever come up with. (Yes, it is that good)

Soon as I get my Alli rogue to an appropriate lv to enable me to steal Sylv's skin so that I can make the vid, I I'll post the strat.
Howdy everyone! Friendly reminder - we are hosting a tournament in 3 hours. All are welcome to join. My btag is in the tournament announcement post. Cheers!

What were the winning teams?
Hi Nahali,

Blightbreath, droplet of y´sharjj, snarly
Rebellious imp, basilisk, magma rageling
Wyrmy, fox, blazehound
Widget, twilight, frostfur rat

Thanks.
Wow. I admire your memory. When I do play, I literally can't remember what I used two games ago.

Rebellious imp, basilisk, magma rageling (with the trap, I presume)? really? I wouldn't have thought of that. Seems kind of risky. Hmmm. Interesting. Might try it sometime (if I remember :).

Well, I lost to those teams, and these are the teams that went undefeated throughout the tournament. Magma rageling with the trap yes. Kinda scary that it drs with the basilisk stun, but Lich ran magma wave with it so...
Yes, one of my teams was Magma Rageling, P/P Rebellious Imp, and a Scalded Basilisk Hatchling. The Rageling uses Magma Wave and the trap. The strategy would normally be like this: I start with the Imp; use Immolation and do a basic attack or two until it is at 40-50% HP; free switch to the Basilisk and use all of its abilities; free switch to the Rageling, cast a trap, do Flame Jet, and then spam aoe until the Rageling dies. Then it’s Imp>Basilisk until the game ends. Sometimes I might get the Rageling out after doing its combo by switching to the Imp and repeating everything all over again.
When will be the next one ?
