In Game Actions
Participants will be assigned specific times to fight. It is the players responsibility to show up on time.
Participants will be notified ONCE via email before their time and ONCE by PSN message if they are not present during their designated time.
Participants have 10 minutes from the moment that a referee sends a message to get into the room. Failure to do so will result in disqualification.
Any participants who try to invoke drama or any incident that may disrupt or delay the tournament or harm the spirit of fair game will be disqualified and removed from the tournament. Referees reserve the right to disqualify any participant for infractions or attempt to stall, sabotage, cheat in, or otherwise delay the tournament.This applies to before the match, and only applies to running the clock during a match when it is deemed as being purposeful to stall, troll, or otherwise sabotage/act in a malicious manner during the tournament in accordance with the fair play rule.
Any use of glitches/bugs/hacks which are detrimental to the tournament or tournament play will result in immediate disqualification.
In cases where a referee or player believes that the other player has violated the bans/restrictions, the match MUST be played to completion. Do not stop mid-match to avoid encourage false claims (if a player is losing) and/or mistaken claims. After the match as been played, referees will look at the results screen and view both ACs to verify whether or not the AC is meeting the restrictions/bans. If in the case that both referees or players do not get a good look at ACs (IE accidentally exiting results screen), it will be required that both players start up the match again and self destruct so that they can go back to the results screen and view the AC. If either player enters Assembly or Garage, they are to be penalized with a game loss.
Failure to follow any and all of the above may result in disqualification.
Match Win Conditions
Win condition is either by destroying the opponents AC or having the most AP at time limit.
Tie situations are decided by the game, and will result in another match on the same map. Players may change ACs.
Maps are chosen based on a set counterpick system. First map is either agreed upon by both players or chosen at random. The loser of each match gets to choose the next map.
Maps that are legal to choose:
Mock Battle Maps (Extermination Mission, No Subtarget)
Free Battle Maps (Team Battle Ver.)
-Mynsky Hill is always banned. If it is picked during random, another map must be picked at random.
-Random Map is chosen from Mock Battles for the first match. If both players consent, Free Battle map can be chosen.
-After the first match, the loser can pick from either Mock or Free battle maps.
-A map can be chosen multiple times as long as both players agree to it. Otherwise, it is limited to one use. A map coming up in random counts as one use.
-If a map is in both Mock Battle and Free Battle, it is still limited to one use.
Players competing in this tournament are solely responsible for being familiar with and understanding these rulesets.
Brackets will be posted September 20th.
Brackets will be generated at random on Challonge.com, and then reorganized based on players desired times (based on the registration form)
PSN chats will be opened for participants and referees. No other players are allowed in.
