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.



Running Polls
TBA


Current Palette

A copy will be added on a skin and a .gmp soon. It's late I'm tired from moving

TBA for a .gmp file which is a palette than can be imported into the new PMCSkin3D editor.

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, and welcome back after another wonky hiatus thingy. I've bee busy moving, but now I'm busy getting pbl back in action.

This weeks palette comes courtesy of ICY :biolikesthis:

Pairs who did not make polls have been dropped from the contest and Kite Guy will advance to battle Bureine.

This may result in this season being one week shorter (like last season).

I'm seeing a trend of everyone voting for whoever posts the poll, may just be a coincidence tho

just checked all the polls and only 2 people who posted a poll lost, although one was very close to a win. This is a CONSPRACY

Hiya kids, after a long delay because time management is not my thing, we are ready to start.

Here is the bracket:


A couple important things:
1. The 3 way battle between Len-Kun, SasukeMC, and Moridis comes as a result of Pyro's early forfeit
2. All polls must be created before 08/13/18
3. All polls must only run for 2 days, final count will occur once all polls have closed (08/16/18 at the latest)

Good luck to all 25 competitors! See you in round 2

If I get lucky enough to survive round one, I can use the better shading skills I've learned to make a better skin for week 2, but even if I make it round 3 there are multiple good people I can go up against... not to mention week 4, but week 1 will be the hardest to survive, because the skin isn't that good, just gotta hope for the best!

IGHT!

Okay, so for those of you who don’t know why I have put my skin in an imgur post instead of on PMC...I recently lost my internet connection in my house and I’m only still here because, well, I have unlimited data on my phone. That being said, I have zero ways of connecting to the internet on my computer still, which is where I make all of my skins. I managed to figure out how to transfer files from my computer onto my phone, but somehow the skin file converted into a .jpeg during the transfer or something and it won’t let me post the skin on PMC. So this is the best solution I have until Monday. If signups close after Monday, I can actually post the skin, but if not, then this will have to do. (Or campestral has agreed to convert the image and post it to her account if that’s a better solution.)
