Rules
Solo Specificities : 3vs3 Specificities :
  • Free character select, best of three
  • Solo tournament with double elimination
  • Side and character pick : see the dedicated topic below
  • Character locked, double or triple character allowed, best of one
  • Team tournament in double elimination
  • Team tournament with the “strike” system (the player that wins stays until he is defeated) determined by a single match
  • If necessary, the team captains will do a janken (rock-paper-scissors) to decide which player to send first

Basic Rules :

  • Don’t be late or fear elimination, or at least some unpleasant vacations in the loser bracket or final elimination.
  • The tournaments will be held on the japanese arcade (CPS-2) version of Super Street Fighter 2X, on versus cabinets (Astro City and Versus City).
  • Gouki/Akuma : Banned

Sides pick :

If the players don’t agree on which side they prefer to play, they will do a janken (rock-paper-scissors) and the winner can choose it.

Characters pick :

Two methods can be applied : Standard Pick or Blind Pick.

  • Standard : each player selects his character/player normally, as they would in a casual game. Once it’s selected, there is no turning back to a blind pick.
  • Blind : both players whisper their character/player to a different referee, and both the referees reveal it at the same time, neutrally.

Equipments issues :

  • The buttons and joysticks can be faulty. In this situation, the equipments will be changed quickly, the game will have to be replayed fully if the issue is acknowledged by the referee.

Additional rules :

  • Withdrawal means loss of every weekend prizes.
  • We have a very strict policy about threats and violent behaviour. People will be banned from the tournament if they generate any kind of issue.

All these rules exist so we can ensure the best conditions of enjoyement for the weekend. The referees may have to modify some of the above rules if special circumstances make it necessary.
