However, you risk being disqualified if there are no other matches in that round to be played.

  • if your behavior is disruptive during the tournament or if you do anything obviously illegal, you will be escorted out. Money matches are fine as long as you aren’t advertising them all over the place.

  • this is a bring your own controller (BYOC). We have no obligation to loan controllers, so come prepared. We’re not responsible for you not having anything to play on.

  • you may bring your own console and set it up on a TV that is meant for casuals that does not have anything plugged into it. Neither FIU nor the tournament staff is responsible for any of your belongings (this does not mean the staff will not try to keep an eye on things for you nor that they won’t help you try and find them, we are simply under no obligation to do so) if they are damaged or lost.
