General Rules:

  • 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 judges discretion this rule may be ignored if Inevitable Defeat is visible. Inevitable Defeat means that any Game paused during a Round, Game or Set ending move or animation will not count against the victorious player. Inevitable Defeat is only true if a judge unpaused the game and a player wins without additional input.
  • The PlayStation DualShock 4 controller is legal for tournaments contested on the PlayStation 4. It is your responsibility as a competitor to desync controllers prior to your matches from the PlayStation 4's Devices menu in the system settings. Please take ownership of ensuring you have an uninterrupted experience.


  • 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 teammate 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 and judges cannot, and will not, make this determination. Coaching
  • 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 the Tournament Director's discretion.


  • Players may bring their own pad controller or arcade stick to play on. This controller must adhere to tournament rules (no turbo button or game altering controller) and be available to you when your match is called.
