Please note that there is a second tab on the schedule for equipment checklist. We can’t make this event happen without the contributions from our community. If you are able to bring equipment to be used for tournament stations, please contact Mike Daniels on facebook. If you are able to bring a station for tournament play, please make sure it is up to date before the tournament. We will not be able to connect to XBOX Live or PSN at the venue.

Game Rules:

Standard tournament rules apply to all games: pausing the game is a disqualification, character switching is only allowed for the loser of a set, and blind picks can be facilitated by a third party to prevent counter picking in the first set.

All tournaments will be a double elimination bracket.

Game Rules for SFxT 2013:

This is a mixed tournament, which means you can enter as a single or doubles team. This means there will be matches where it is 1v2, 2v2, or 1v1 but that is allowed due to the mixed format.

If you are entering as a doubles team, it is your responsibility to bring your own USB hub. This is very important as TOs will try to bring USB hubs but its not guaranteed. We currently possess only a couple and could need a lot if there are many teams.

Matches are two out of three rounds per set, first to two of three sets except for winners final, losers final and grand final which will be best three out of five sets.

The tournament will use standard 2013 gem loadouts. These are the five gem loadouts that come with a new save file on v2013. No other gem sets or custom sets are allowed.
