SFV Event Rules
Bracket: A flow chart indicating who should play whom at any point during a tournament.

Game: A match between 2 players. In tournaments, players must win X number of games to win the Set.
Set: Number of Games that must be won to advance to the next bracket round or claim victory.
Judge: An individual chosen to run a bracket. A judge is a tournament official and will be empowered to control the flow of matches on a bracket. While Judges can resolve conflicts it is often advised that you seek out a Tournament Director for substantial issues.
Tournament Director: An individual overseeing the event judges and managing competitor experiences. Tournament Directors are empowered by the event organizers to resolve conflicts in line with event rules.
Event Organizers: The person or people responsible for running the event.
Registration will be open until September 21st, 2017. Seeded entry into event tournaments requires online registration. Players who enter during online registration will be seeded at random. Registering on site is limited to Emergency Registration hours and will incur a higher entry fee. Emergency registrants may only register for brackets with open byes. The nature of Emergency Registration means these registrants will not be seeded. Please register in advance of the event.
You are responsible for knowing which tournament pools you are playing in. Our tournament pools can start as early as 11:00 A.M. on Saturday, September 23rd. Pool arrangements will be posted prior to the event, so that you know when and against whom you will be facing. By the nature of a tournament at some point, somewhere in the bracket, you may face a training partner or team mate. Those are the breaks. May the best player win.
Cheering and jeering from the crowd is perfectly fine, as is a healthy level of trash talking and playful banter. However, if you cross the line into malicious, threatening, or discriminatory hate you will be thrown out of the venue. Do not try to intentionally make other attendees uncomfortable. Control yourself and treat others with respect.
All games will be played on default settings unless specified in individual game details. Individual game details are available on the Games page.
All macros available via in-game controller configuration menus are allowed.
Hardware programmable input entry, rapid-fire and/or other hardware assisted advantages are banned from tournament use.
Pausing during a Game at any time results in a round forfeit. A pause during a Game’s final round forfeits the Game. You may lose a Set on a forfeited Round. At the judge's discretion this rule may be ignored if Inevitable Defeat is visible. This means that any Game paused during a Round, Game or Set ended victory will not count against the victorious player. Inevitable Defeat is only true if a judge unpauses the game and a player wins without additional input.
Wireless Controllers, unless specified in a tournaments individual rules, are banned.
You are required to check into your pool 10 minutes before it starts. For example, if you are in a 12:00 P.M. pool you need to check in with your bracket runner by 11:50 AM. If you are in a 5 P.M. pool you need to check in by 4:50 P.M. If you are not checked in when your pool starts you are disqualified from the first round and sent to the Losers bracket. You don’t want to start in the Loser’s bracket do you?
We will be on time, and we expect you to be too.
You can be disqualified for not following event and individual game tournament rules. If you are disqualified from a game you are not entitled to a refund or temper tantrum. If you are on time and follow listed rules (and common sense) this will never be an issue for you. If you don’t know where to be and at what time, or what rules to be following, ask a tournament official. Official rulings are final. Arbitration will only be provided, as warranted, by the Event Directors.
Conspiring with your fellow competitors is considered cheating. If the Tournament Directors determine that you have colluded to manipulate tournament results you will be immediately disqualified. Intentionally under-performing to advance a friend or team mate is collusion. Anyone disqualified in this manner forfeits all rights to titles, prizes, and bragging rights they would have earned. Determinations are made at the sole discretion of the Tournament Directors. Bracket runners cannot, and will not, make this determination.
You are allowed a single coach during your set. Your coach may not advise you during the match itself. Coaching between games in a set can last for no longer than 1 minute. Coaches who interfere with your opponent physically, or yell at them abusively, may lead to you being disqualified. Implementation of this punishment is at your bracket judge’s discretion.
BRING YOUR OWN CONTROLLER (BYOC)
You are responsible for having a pad controller or arcade stick to play on. This controller
must adhere to tournament rules and be available to you when your match is called. Lending your controller to another player and therefor not having it when your match is called is not a valid excuse for delaying the tournament. Be warned that in this situation you may receive a loss if you are delaying the bracket.
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. It is at your Bracket Judge’s discretion to determine culpability.
