II.) Match Procedure

The following steps outline the process of playing a Match.

1) Players select their sides

2) Players select their characters.

Either Player may invoke Double Blind Character Selection*.

3) The Players play the first Game of the Match.

4) The losing Player of the preceding Match may choose to change characters.

5) Players go to Stage Select and select Random

6) The next Game is played.

7) Repeat steps 4 and 5 for all subsequent Games until the Match is complete.

III.) Side Selection

Players may mutually agree who sits on the left and right side, corresponding to Player 1 and Player 2 respectively, at the start of the Match. Players are committed to this selection for the entirety of the Match. If Players cannot agree to a Side Selection, they will play a Best-of-One Rock-Paper-Scissors to determine who picks their side first. The winner selects a side first.


IV.) Double Blind Character Selection

Either Player may request that a double blind selection occur. In this situation, a Tournament Organizer will be told, in secret, each of the Players’ choices for the first round. Both Players are to then select their first round character, with the staff validating the character selections. If a player does not select the character they told to the bracket Referee or Tournament Organizer they forfeit that Game.


V.) Tie Games

In the event of a tie Game, declared by a Double K.O. screen in the final Round of the Game, the Game will not be scored and both players will replay the tied Game with the same characters and on the same stage.


VI.) Permitted Controllers

All standard arcade sticks and controllers are permitted. Macro functions (e.g. turbo buttons) and wireless controllers other than DualShock 4 are not permitted. Players that use DualShock 4 but do not un-sync their controller after the Match are subject to disqualification at the discretion of Tournament Organizers.
