General Rules.
G1. All Games will be Best of 5 Rounds.

G3.  If Players are scheduled to play each other for a 2nd time, their Match will expand to a Best of 11, include the previous Match, and pick up where that Match left off. For example, if Player A beat Player B 3 Games to 0 in the Winners Bracket, the Best of 11 will resume with Game 4 and Player A leading 3 Games to 0. The winner of a Finals Best of 11 Games Match will win the Event.

G4. If the Players scheduled to play each other in the Finals have not yet played against each other, an initial Best of 5 Games Match must be played. If the Player that came from the Winners Bracket wins the initial Match, they will win the Event. If the Player that came from the Losers Bracket wins the initial Match, the Match will expand to a Best of 11, include the initial Match, and pick up where that Match left off. For example, if the Losers Bracket Player beat the Winners Bracket Player 3 Games to 0 in the initial Match, the Best of 11 will resume with Game 4 and the Losers Bracket Player leading 3 Games to 0.

KOF XIII Rules

2. Players may not incorrectly end a Game, without Referee’s permission.

3. Players who break Gameplay Rules #1-2 will Forfeit the Game.

4. Players who Pause a Round, without Referee’s permission, will Forfeit the Round. When a Round is forfeited, the Round must be un-paused, the winner of the Round must use Basic Attacks to gain a health advantage, and the Round timer must then be allowed to expire.

5. With Referee’s permission, Players may start a Game, prior to the start of Game 1, in order to check their settings. Such Games may not last longer than one minute.

6. The higher seeded Player must choose to play on the left or right side of the screen, before the start of the Match. The Players must then select their correct side at the Controller Select Screen.

7. Players may request a Blind Pick of Characters for Game 1 of a Match.

8. The loser of each Game may select new Characters for the next Game. The winner of each Game won’t be allowed to select new Characters for the next Game, however, they will be allowed to change the order in which their Characters will fight in the next Game. If a Match expands to a Best of 11, the loser of the Best of 5 Games Match may select new Characters for the next Game. The winner of the Best of 5 Games Match won’t be allowed to select new Characters for the next Game, however, they will be allowed to change the order in which their Characters will fight in the next Game.

9. The “?” Stage Option must be selected for Game 1 of a Match unless both Players agree on a specific Stage.

10. The loser of each Game must select a specific Stage, or the “?” Stage Option, for the next Game. If a Match expands to a Best of 11, the loser of the Best of 5 Games Match must select a specific Stage, or the “?” Stage Option, for the next Game.

12. Players who are disqualified prior to the start of a Game won’t be allowed to play in the Game. Players who are disqualified during a Game must quit out of the Game. Players who are disqualified won’t receive any benefits (seeding, prize, etc.) for their ranking in the Event.

13. Games can’t end on a Draw. If a Round ends in a Draw, and counting the Draw as a win for both Players would result in the end of the Match, the Game must be reset with the appropriate pre-Draw Round Score.

Time to let Midwest and East Coast people's know. Still hoping they'll be good numbers at MLG & NCR.

You sure you can make that turnaround in 3 Weeks?
On 5/26, something that defined a generation shall make its rightful return.  #Toonamisbackbitches.  Prepare yourselves.  Bang.

I really don't think it'll draw anyone from the West Coast on such short notice, but who knows.

Well East Coast is already surprising me with how it's going with KOF at FR.  Maybe the WC won't need to come out in force for this.

If Abe is going, someone make him and someone from the East Coast do commentary


Abe + Sabin would be nice
