- To help keep pings as low as possible, we’re restricting it to players from North America only.
- We are also instituting a ping limit. For players outside the US, we will be testing pings before the start of the tournament. If the ping is over 150, we will have an alternate take your place. (Sorry!)

- All matches in the qualifying tournaments are 2 OUT OF 3 rounds and DOUBLE ELIMINATION

- WINNERS FINALS, LOSER FINALS, and GRAND FINALS are 3 OUT OF 5 ROUNDS.
- Akuma is banned. Zangief’s “magic grab” glitch is banned.
- Anyone who is caube using macros or turbos, will be DISQUALIFIED and BANNED.
- Any excessive unsportsmanlike behavior will result in a BAN. Keep it civilized, gentlemen!
- Any players absent after fifteen minutes of the start time, will be DISQUALIFIED and the first alternate will take his/her place.

- If two players cannot connect, they will have the option of playing on an alternative service (Supercade, etc.). If this is not an option, a coinflip will determine the winner.

FINALS:

- THREE MAN, RACE TO TEN FORMAT between the three finalists.
- The first two players will be chosen at random and they will play one game. WINNER STAYS. The third player plays the winner one game. Repeat. First player to TEN becomes the KING OF GGPO 2013 Champion!
- Matches will be streamed by Sergjiev (Arkadeum) @ for the world to see, SO BRING YOUR “A” GAME!

    That's probably 4 pm Eastern, right?

    Is there a cut-off time for registration? I won't be able to register until an hour before it starts.

    Congratulations to Yito2k for winning, also to Ultracombo for playing, gg's guys!

    Remember that this is just a videogame, and King of GGPO an online tournament, Kuroppi doesn't have the need to do it, but he does it and i'm thankful with him by supporting our game on an online client.

    Thanks for your time and effort Kuroppi.
    Strike First, Strike Hard, Show No Mercy.

    Do you have a smartphone?

    Set an alarm for it. Use Google Calendar with reminders. I also send email reminders to everyone who signs up.

    You have no excuse. :)

    He had some pretty exciting matches, especially against Yito. He had both clutch and choke moments that made for insane mic-cutting-out levels of hype.
