New Season and Managment

Posted by avdc90 on June 27, 2014 at 9:10 AM Comments comments (0)

 I deeply apologize for the sever lack of activity. It seems life and other Pokémon events took priority over this league. I'm sure it is no surprise that there are other start up collegiate leagues and ideas circling around the internet.

 The goal of this league is to bring college Pokémon clubs together on the internet to compete in semester battling seasons just like if we were football/basketball/whatever else players. Perhaps we would have a live competition sometime down the road. Thank you to all for participating and showing interest.

 Unfortunately, I am no longer a college student. I graduated from Penn State in December 2013. But I have left the league in the very capable hands of the current Vice President of the Penn State Pokémon Society, Royal Downs (that's not to say I'm gone for good, however). From talking to him I can clearly see there is still interest in this which is beyond amazing.

 

 

 I have noticed on other various websites that Pokémon players are sort of divided between singles (smogonites and their "offspring") and VGC style (nuggetbridge and their associates). Both groups of people are very nice and I consider myself to be friends with them. So I think in order for this particular league to thrive, we need to decide on a solid ruleset. That way we can attract a solid group of people. Offering both styles in tandem to support the idea of a "team" showcasing their strongest players in respective categories could be one option to look into. 

tl;dr. This league is great. Keep it that way. Thanks for being here. More to come.

Current News

There will be no official IPL season this spring semester, but we will resume in the Fall of 2013. This will give us time to get out name out, recruit more people/ schools, and make everything awesome. 

It seems as though we always have schools with one or two people interested in participating. While this is a team based league, it's sad that those individuals cannot compete. So, starting in the Fall 2013 we will institute a free battler system where individuals can sign up and be on a team regardless of official school affiliation. 

Have good semester and we will see everyone in September!!

I apologize for the spotty communications. Everyone has been busy with school and regional competitions. We have also been busy with recruiting. We are hoping to have at least three new schools joining us in the Spring Semester. 


I just wanted to let everyone know, we are still up and running. We are in the process of expanding and making this even better than before!


When you guys go to Regional VGCs, feel free to tell your oponents about the Intercollegiate Pokemon League and direct them to this site!! People really seem to think it's an awesome idea (because it is)

Fun Times!!

I hope everyone had an awesome break (or is having an awesome one) as we get back into the battling spirit starting this weekend, March 17th. This week starts Fun Times, which is battling with any ruleset the teams agree upon, and the outcome will not affect the overall win/loss record.


Speaking of which, I have updated the site with our current records for this semester. Please check them and be sure I didnt make any mistakes there, and tell me if something is wrong.


Good luck everyone!

We Begin Again

Hi everyone, I hope you all had a nice relaxing break and are ready for another semester of studying and battling. This semester the schedule is quite different than what it has been in the past; please take a look at it and tell me what you think (a comment here would be great).


Also please update me on your school's win-loss record from last semester so the Results section could be accurate.


Thank you everyone for being involved in this and enjoy this next semester of epic battles.
