Basically these are tourneys that “pro” players cannot play in. So the Marvel tourney coming up on the 29th of this month will be an amateur hour tourney. So T.T.F. Dios X, WL Crisco, and BT Viscant would not be able to play in it. The goal of this tourney is to get more people to play and have a bigger turn out. Just like in the vanilla days of Street Fighter IV the amateur hour brought out a lot of players.
This is pretty much a San Diego players only tourney.
