PBL - Season 20 - Battle Royale Underway

The Palette Battle League is a skin battle league where 30-something members face off in a tournament-style competition of skin battles using preset 12 color palettes until a winner is chosen. From start to finish, each season takes around 6 weeks, if everything goes smoothly.

PBL was previously headed up by Hawkstormer [janidorr], but he has since taken leave and left it in the loving embrace of Ludicrous and Knight PureNerd BIO. We honor him with our competitive spirit.

How to join PBL - How are battles run? - Beginners start here
If you want to join PBL you must create a skin using the palette which is posted during signups. Your skin will be considered your entry and the bracket will be made based on the number of completed skins.

PBL battles are run on a semi-weekly basis. A palette is assigned one day of the week and skins are due one week later. The specific days fluctuate due to the limited availability of some competitors.

Once both competitors have finished their skins one or the other must set up a poll on the forum with links to their respective skins. Here other members vote for a winner, one or the other competitor needs to PM me a link to said poll. Polls should only be open for 2 days after the skin deadline.

Rules & Regulations
1. If a competitor knows they will not be able to complete the skin for an upcoming battle (due to vacation/not enough time/schoolwork/etc.), they should notify myself or another league official at least 72 hours before the first day of the next battle.

2. Competitors who do not create a skin during the battle week without notifying a league official beforehand will be disqualified, and his/her opponent will move up to the next round automatically, granted they make a skin.

3. If 1 or more competitors drop the bracket will likely be shaken up and occasionally there may be battles with 3 skins or other abnormalities. Stuff happens man
4. All skins created must comply with all the Site Rules, including the Submission Guidelines.

5. To qualify for PBL, you must have at least 2 skins completed. That is all.

6. If you and your opponent have clearly communicated and agreed you may 1. Choose to use your own color palette instead of those provide, though I ask that you avoid this if at all possible. 2. Update your skins after the poll has been posted. You may not use either of these options unless your opponent has agreed explicitly.

Current Bracket

I recommend opening the picture in another tab so you can zoom in and read all the names. Be aware of nicknames I might've had to use for longer names.

Important Changes - README.txt
A few things are going to change around here.

1. You can no longer enter PBL without first creating a skin. The palette for the first week will be posted during signups. Your skin is considered your entry, the bracket will be made with those members who complete skins during signups.

2. Not every palette will be 12 colors anymore. The number of colors will likely fluctuate to allow for a broader range of styles to be viable in the competition.

Hiya kids, week 2 went well. Good stuff.

With week two concluded we now have our 5 finalists. The last round will be a single poll (I will create it in this case). Every finalist is required to complete their skin by 07/20/18 and polls will be collected on 07/22/18. (Unless someone knows they cannot complete a skin on that schedule, they may request a deadline extension 2 days or more prior to the deadline)

As before remember that no matter when your poll opens it needs to close after two days.

Here is the palette:

This week's palette is brought to you by my near and dear friend, Akashi :)

Good luck to all of our finalists, let's see some good skins.

Yo sorry I left out a deadline, I should have made things more clear. Because I didn't specifically say, the new skin deadline is going to be the 07/11/18 and polls should be finished before 07/13/18.

That means all polls should run for two days and CLOSE after the second day, even if it comes before the 13th. If the poll between woo and cranio lasts longer than that, so be it, they put their's out before I made this announcement.

Please follow along with the above for any polls to come, regardless of the start date. 2 days and done

Hiya kids, week 2 is underway! Please remember to post links to skins and polls in replies here!

Just a few housekeeping things:

1. For some clarification, both Pyro and Nah decided to forfeit, and so I randomly selected one of the losers to continue using an RNG. Anyone who is curious need only ask, I have the source and output saved on mediafire.

2. This weeks palette comes courtesy of Woo. Yes that's allowed because I run this thing now. That's why.

3. For future reference, anyone who wants to submit a palette hit me up. I can't garauntee to use them, but if I like them I'll toss em in and give you credits.

Alright work hard n play hard. I wanna see some good skins.

Not quite. The bracket is randomized and then polls are made using the skins just submitted for the first round. Subsequent rounds will work like normal
