1.2. Match Procedure

The following steps outline the process of playing a Match.

  1. Players select their sides (see Section 1.3)
  2. Players select their characters. Either Player may invoke Double Blind Character Selection (as defined in Section 1.4).
  3. The Players play the first Game of the Match.
  4. Players go to Stage Select (see Section 1.5)
  5. The next Game is played.
  6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 for all subsequent Games until the Match is complete.

1.3. Side Selection

Players may mutually agree who sits on the left and right side, corresponding to Player 1 and Player 2 respectively, at the start of the Match. Players are committed to this selection for the entirety of the Match. If Players cannot agree to a Side Selection, they will play a Best-of-One Rock-Paper-Scissors to determine who picks their side first. The winner selects a side first and then alternate from there onwards.

1.4. Double Blind Character Selection

Either Player may request that a double blind selection occur. In this situation, a Tournament Organizer will be told, in secret, each of the Players’ choices for the first round. Both Players are to then select their first round character, with the staff validating the character selections. If a player does not select the character they told to the bracket Referee or Tournament Organizer they forfeit that Game.

1.5. Stage Selection

The Group leader will choose a stage for the first race. From there onwards the loosing player may decide to choose a stage

1.6. Items

All Items are by default legal. Should both players agree that they will play without items prior to the race then items cannot be used and if either player uses an item, he/she will lose that race. If an agreement cannot be reached than items will be legal and can be used.

1.7. Permitted Controllers

All standard arcade sticks and controllers are permitted. Macro functions (e.g. turbo buttons) and wireless controllers other than DualShock 4 are not permitted. It is the players responsibility to make sure that there are no synced controllers prior to their match start so that there will be no interruptions to the match. If the match is interrupted in this way by a third party, the match will go on as if nothing happened since it is the responsibility of the players playing to make sure that there are no controllers synced apart from theirs.

2. Match Obligations

If a Player either intentionally or accidentally pauses the Game by either pressing the PS button or unplugging his or his opponent’s controller, the Player who paused forfeits the current Round.

Tournament Organizers may order a Game or Match restart due to exceptional circumstances, such as if a bug significantly affects a Player’s ability to play or a Game or Match is unable to finish.

Each player will face his opponent once in a BO3 series in a round robin format. A team leader will be assigned to each group and he or she will be responsible to note down the results.

It is the responsibility of the players to keep up with their team’s standings and make sure that no error was done from the group's leader.

One point will be awarded for a win, and zero points for a loss in the group stage. In the event of ties in point standings, the following sequence will be used to determine who advances to the elimination stage:

  1. Points earned from matches won.
  2. Result of head to head game.
  3. If two players are still tied, a BO3 match will be played with the same rules.

Elimination Stage

Players will be randomly drawn in the brackets. In the first stage of the brackets one cannot face someone he already faced in the group stages.

The format will be that of a double elimination bracket (winner and loser) brackets. All matches will be Best of 5 (FT3) were all players will start in the winners bracket.

These rules are subject to change if necessary, and Visionary Iron Team administrators reserve the right to make additional decisions outside the defined ruleset if necessary.
