    — UMvC3 Entry Fee: $5

Ranbat stands for “Ranking Battle,” which is a series of 5 tournaments that count towards an overall Ranbat season. In each individual tournament, $1 of the entry fee will go to the overall season’s pot and the remaining $4 will go to that particular tournament’s pot. At the end of the tournament, top 8 will be awarded points. This will repeat for each tournament in the season while players accumulate more points. At the end of the season, the top 3 players with the most points will be the winners of the overall season and win a portion of the season’s pot.

The “Double Jeopardy Rule” basically evens the playing field on opponents who have to face one another twice in a tournament. The sets would basically be one long set of a first to four (or six for Marvel). For instance: Player A defeats Player B 2-1 on the winners side of the bracket, and the two of them have to meet again in losers down the line. Using the last score (2-1), Player B now has to win THREE games (1 to complete their first 2/3 set, then another full 2/3 set) to win the set while Player A only needs to win TWO (a single 2/3 set). Again, it’s basically a race to four (or six for Marvel), spread over both sets. When your match is called, please remember to tell the TOs right away to invoke the Double Jeopardy rule. The TOs will not be responsible for remembering every double jeopardy instance, it’s up to you to call it out to us. This rule gives a clear (and rightful) advantage to the winner of the first set, and so it’s very important that we all try to enforce it.

Grand Finals is exempt from this rule.

1st place - 60% of season pot
2nd place - 30% of season pot
3rd place - 10% of season pot

Prizes and awards will also be given out at the end of the season! These prizes may vary (trophies, t-shirts, swag).

2nd place - 5 points
3rd place - 4 points
