TOURNAMENT FORMAT & RULES

  • Double Elimination. Each Tournament Event will be played as a double elimination (a “Double Elimination”) bracket competition, in which Players compete in Matches (the “Match Sets”) starting from what is known as the winner’s side of the bracket (the “Winner’s Bracket”). If a Player loses a Match Set while in the Winner’s Bracket, that Player will be moved to the loser’s side of the bracket (the “Loser’s Bracket”). If a Player loses a Match Set while in the Loser’s Bracket, that Player is eliminated and will no longer advance further in the bracket for that Tournament Event. The winner of the Winner’s Bracket will play against the winner of the Losers Bracket in the Grand Finals of the Tournament Event, as set forth below.
  • Match Play.
    • All Match Sets will be best-of-one, in which the Player who wins one (1) Match first wins the Match Set, with the exception that the Grand Finals of each Tournament Event bracket will be best-of-three, in which the Player who wins two (2) Matches first wins the Match Set.
    • The winner of any single Match is determined when the Game awards the win to that Player or upon the opponent causing a match disruption or other violation of the Rules as determined by the Tournament Organizer staff member.
    • (FOR GRAND FINALS) During a Match Set, the winner of any single Match must comply with the following winner lock rules:
      • After any single Match, the winner is “locked” into their character and they are not permitted to switch their character until or unless they lose a subsequent single Match;
    • All Matches will be held in a “Free Duel” room and will be subject to this feature’s rules.
  • Grand Finals. The “Grand Finals” is a Match Set series comprising of up to two (2) best-of-three Match Sets between the final two (2) Players left in a Tournament Event. In the event the Player from the Winner’s Bracket wins the first Match Set, the Grand Finals immediately ends, giving the Player from the Loser’s Bracket their second and eliminating loss, and making the Player from the Winner’s Bracket the overall winner of the Tournament Event. In the event that the Player from the Loser’s Bracket wins the first Match Set, thereby giving the Player from the Winner’s Bracket their first loss, a second best-of-three Match Set will be played.The Player that wins this final Match Set, thereby giving the other Player their second and eliminating loss from the Tournament Event, is declared the winner of such Tournament Event.
  • Missing Players. Players must be present at the call time for a Match Set. Players that are not present and ready to play within ten (10) minutes of this call time are subject to Match Set forfeiture.
  • Match Disruptions. If a Player intentionally or accidentally causes an interruption in a Match the Player that caused the interruption will forfeit the current round of the Match. If a Match disruption occurs that is out of control of the Players of the Match Set, such as Game software crash or server-side disconnection making Players unable to continue a Match, the Tournament Organizer staff member shall order the Players to restart the Match.
  • Controller Usage. Controllers are allowed, however, a Player may not program functions on a controller such as, but not limited to, programmable and turbo controllers. The following sequences are prohibited:
    • A single input that results in the execution of multiple subsequent inputs.
    • Combination inputs except for those that can be applied within the game (ex. directional movement + attack buttons are allowed by the game).
    • A single button input which results in a directional movement input and an attack input.
