Alting You will be immediately disqualified from the tournament with no refunds if you are found hiding your identity to manipulate the bracket/seeding. The only exception to this rule is if the player notifies a TO before prior to the registration end date.
Collusion Players suspected of colluding may be immediately disqualified from the tournament. This includes intentionally throwing a game, splitting a payout, or committing any other form of bracket manipulation. The TO reserves the right to deny payout of event winnings to any player suspected of colluding.
Misinterpretation/Misconfiguration (Settings Check) Games or sets are not to be replayed due to a misinterpretation of the rules OR misconfiguration of game settings. Game settings should be configured according to rules below. Additionally, all controller configurations should be handled before a match is played. Rounds, games, or sets are not to be replayed due to players failing to check their controller configurations in advance. It is the players’ responsibilities to ask the TO for any clarification of the rule set in the event of a disagreement, and the outcome of a game or set will not be changed after the fact unless under extreme circumstances, judgment reserved for tournament staff.
Split Screen Mode
All tournament sets are to be played one on switch console using split screen mode and configured according to rules. This is due in part to equipment limitations and time constraints, as well as a mitigation strategy to avoid wireless controller interference or gameplay lag introduced through the “local area” mode
(Depending on equipment, we may provide a 4-Switch setup for Top 8: one for 2-player splitscreen each, with one or both also hooked for spectating/streaming purposes)
Pausing is defined as using the in game pause menu or returning to the HOME menu. Pausing is only allowed in between rounds. If pausing occurs during a set, the game is not to be unpaused until a TO has been called over to determine how to advance. In the event that a TO is not present, the result of the game will be a win recorded for the individual who did not pause.
Wireless Controller Interference
In the event that wireless controllers are being used and interference occurs, a TO should be called over to determine how to advance. If a resolution cannot be reached in a reasonable amount of time, the player using said controller is subject to forfeiting the round, game, or set at the TO’s discretion.
Final Rulings If any unforeseen situations occur, judgment of Tournament Staff is final. Rules may be altered between phases of a tournament in the best interests of the event. (Example: A game breaking glitch is discovered on a stage tournament that could be exploited. Thus, the stage may need to be removed from legal play for the remainder of the event.)
