SoCal Level|Up Tournament Rules

Below you will find an outline of the tournament rules. Please note that any of these rules are subject to change AT ANY TIME at the discretion of Level|Up staff.

 

General Rules

  • BYOC – Bring your own Controller/Stick – Loaners will not be provided!
  • The use of any automated controller functions (i.e. Turbo, Macros, etc) is PROHIBITED.
  • DEFAULT control settings will be used for both Street Fighter 4 and Tekken 6
    • Buttons can be disabled if the needed
    • Shoulder button mapping is NOT allowed in Tekken 6

 

Bracketing

Each 64-man tournament will be divided into four (4) double-elimination 16-man pools (brackets). Each pool will have a maximum of two (2) qualifiers; one (1) from the Winners Bracket and one (1) from the Losers Bracket. Four pools equals eight (8) qualifiers; four (4) Winners Bracket qualifiers and four (4) Losers Bracket qualifiers.

The eight qualifiers will then be randomly placed into a non-resettable 8-man bracket for the Top 8 event. This means that if you are the Winners Bracket qualifier of your pool, you remain in the Winners Bracket of the Top 8. If you are the Losers Bracket qualifier of your pool, you remain in the Losers Bracket of the Top 8.
