OFFICIAL GENERAL TOURNAMENT RULES

All games will be played on the default settings, unless otherwise specified, below.

All macros via the in-game controller configuration menu (ex: 3-punches, one-button dash) are allowed.

Hardware programmable input entry, rapid-fire, or other hardware assisted mechanisms are strictly forbidden.

Accidentally pausing the game at any time during the fight will force you to forfeit the round.

Any player using “Random Select” to pick their character, must “Random Select” again if they win the match, provided that there is no way to pick a certain character in the random box.

Blind pick is available to be called prior to the match starting. If blind pick is called both players must tell the judge/bracket runner the characters they plan to use. Once that is said that character must be used in that match!

Winner keeps the same character/s or team in the same order as used. Loser can change the character.

You must provide your own controller/converters for games played on all systems.

Brook Converters are allowed.

Cronus Max Plus and Titan One converters are banned.

Wireless controllers are allowed, but For ALL players who are playing PS4 games (INCLUDING PLAYERS WHO USE WIRED STICKS/CONTROLLERS): You must check the PS4 Bluetooth Devices menu before the start of each match to ensure that all old wireless controller pairings have been deleted. Players who use wireless controllers are unable to delete their own controller pairing from the system, which means that the responsibility for deleting that controller falls upon the next player who plays on that console. THIS IS EVERY PLAYER’S RESPONSIBILITY, EVEN THOSE WHO DO NOT USE WIRELESS CONTROLLERS.

There is a maximum of 60 seconds allowed between games in a set, and there is NO COACHING ALLOWED!
