Tournament Rules

Code of Conduct

We have a zero tolerance policy toward violence, threats of violence, intimidation, inappropriate contact, harassment (sexual or otherwise), and other forms of personal misconduct. Any incident or threat of violence, harassment, aggressive intimidation, or inappropriate contact of any kind will result in a minimum 1-event to lifetime attendance ban.

TL;DR Don't be a jerk, be nice and have fun

Controllers

Controllers must be plugged in, regardless if they offer wireless or not. In the event your playing on a console instead of a PC, you MUST desync your controller. Failure to do so might result in a round loss or DQ.

Turbo and program (macro) functions in all controllers are banned. In-game macros are allowed (Dash button in Guilty Gear: Strive is acceptable, a macro doing two forward inputs is not). If you are caught using them you will be disqualified for cheating. Only allowed to have one button per input. You cannot have two L1 buttons for example. If your found to have it your controller will be DQ'ed and you must play with another controller.

Bugs and Glitches

Intentionally triggering a bug or glitch that stops the game from being played counts as a loss for the triggering player. Discovering a bug or glitch in tournament does not count as a loss.

Special Tournament Rules

Any event taking place at "Lubbock Finale" that has 5 or less players will be converted to a round robin. It will result into a Winner take all payout as well. Any events that have no signups/attendees present at the time of starting will be delayed up to 15 minutes to 35 minutes. Afterwards all attendees of said event, who paid, will be refunded of their game entry and the game will be cancelled at the event. Thank you for understanding.
