Game Rules:


YOU MUST PROVIDE YOUR OWN EQUIPMENT. Not having proper, working equipment is not excused grounds for late arrival to a much and subject to disqualification. Borrow/Lend at your own risk!

In game button binding/macros are allowed. 

-PS3 sixaxis and ds3 are HEAVILY discouraged. 

-Turbos and hardware macros are banned. 

-UMVC3 and ST are best 3 of 5 games

-All other games  are best 2 of 3 games. 
2/3 rounds.

-Double blind selection available upon request. The requester will secretly inform the judge of his character selection, then the other player will select his character. The judge then announces the other character. All other rules proceed as normal.

-Winner of matches must keep character and order. In AE, if the opposing players switches characters, they may switch ultra.

-Pausing a game is cause for forfeiture of the round except in cases of imminent victory. In case of dispute, the game’s pause screen indicates the player that paused. The default ruling is match forfeiture and must be waived by the non pausing player for the match to continue.

-In case a pause occurs by neither players fault or a 3rd party, The judge or tournament organizer will either restart the match or advise the continuation of play from a neutral situation.

-Getting up from the playing area during match play or unplugging your control device willfully is considered a forfeiture.

-Players will be organized in pools. Pool size may vary depending on game and number of entrants. Pool start times will be posted online and in the venue. Pool check-ins will occur at that time. If a player does not check in, and is not present by the time the first round completes, you will be disqualified to losers. If a player has been disqualified to losers, they will be immediately DQ’d again if they are not present when that loser’s match is called. Time conflicts with other tournaments or a personal emergency are the only valid reasons to avoid the DQ. Eating or sleeping are not personal emergencies. 

- Draw rounds awarded by the game count. Draw games do not count. So in AE, a draw round at 0-0 or 1-0 counts, but one at 1-1 does not. Replay the entire game. 

-No floating under any circumstances. All efforts will be made to seed and separate regions in the brackets, but this is a tournament, and sometimes you have to play friends. 

-Collusion of any kind with your competitors is considered cheating. If the Tournament Director determines that any competitor is colluding to manipulate the results or intentionally under-performing, the collaborating players may be immediately disqualified. This determination is to be made at the sole discretion of the Tournament Director. Anyone disqualified in this manner forfeits all rights to any titles or prizes they might have otherwise earned for that tournament.

-Conduct detrimental to the tournament will not be tolerated. Any player or spectator found to be causing a disturbance will be asked to immediately stop or leave. Patrons visibly under the influence of drugs or alcohol will be asked to leave. Open containers of alcohol in the event halls will not be tolerated. 

-All prizes for singles tournaments will be 65% of the prize pot to 1st, 25% to 2nd, and 10% to 3rd.

Akuma is banned in ST.
