Players must come to an agreement which side of the machine they will play on (who will sit on 1p and who will sit on 2p).
If an agreement cannot be reached, players shall follow the instructions provided by the Tournament Organizer.
Playing the Match:
Once sides and characters have been chosen, the players should begin the first Game in the Match. The following rules go into effect once a Game ends:
The Match is over when either player wins the required number of games. Once a player has won the required number of games, the winner of the Match should report the result to the Tournament Organizer. The player who won the game does not have the option of switching sides. He/she must stay on the same side if the loser does not want to switch. The player who won the last Game is required to keep the same character, however they can change their V-Trigger and V-Skill if their new V-Trigger and V-Skill choice is made before their opponent selects their own V-Trigger and V-Skill. The player who lost the last Game is allowed to choose whatever they wish when choosing character, V-Trigger and V-Skill.
Reporting Tournament Violations:
It is the responsibility of the players in the Match to detect all Match Rule violations and report them to the Tournament Organizer immediately.
All non-gameplay rule violations must be reported to the Tournament Organizer before the Game starts (e.g. the Winner switching the characters after winning one Game in a Match).
