If you wish to change controls, do so prior to the match during a button check. If you begin the match with the wrong controls, that is too bad. If you pause the match or attempt to restart because your controls were messed up, you forfeit your match.

If you wish to use multi button binds for other games, it will have to be at the affirmation of your opponent. Default button binds are exempt from this rule.

Winner keeps same character, loser may select a new one

All games will be played on random stage select unless the game has widely recognized lag-inducing stages. (UMVC3, BBCP, etc.)

Blind character selection may be requested if a counter pick is a concern. In this case, one of the staff may be called upon to get the selection of both characters from the competitors.

If you are called for a match, you will have 5 minutes (which is VERY lenient) to get to your station and play. If you fail to get to your station, you will forfeit the match. This is not true in the case of someone playing in another game if they are called to play. This is the only exemption. Making your opponents wait is rude, and it also holds up the progress of our bracket. Be courteous. If you are in a tournament that is on going, then stick around. If you need to go smoke, do it fast, and continue your conversations back in the tournament room.

Regarding PS3 pads: Do not turn your pad ON until you have synced it to a system using a USB cord. PLEASE turn OFF your pad following the end of your match. This has been an issue in the past, and this negligence isn’t going to be tolerated. It’s disruptive to the people who come to play after you. Failure to turn off your pad will result in an automatic disqualification which will count as a loss in your tournament record. A second offense will result in your forfeit from the tournament.

ONLY EVO STANDARD SETUPS. Enough people have ASUS monitors and EVO standard setups. Most people absolutely prefer to play on these as opposed to less well known setups, due to lag. These will be the only ones accepted for use in tournament play. When registering your setup, you will let us know what your system is, what games you have, and if you have the DLC for those games. This way, we’ll know if we can run that setup for a game we’re playing, or if we need to find a player to switch the setup. Other setups can be used for casual gaming. We will label each setup that is used for tournament play at the start of the day.

“IT’S MY SETUP, SO I’LL PLAY WHAT I WANT ON IT” No, you won’t. When you submit your equipment, and have you registration fee waived, you also submit to the needs of the tournament directors. If that means we need to immediate kick you off the setup and put in ‘x’ game, or we know you registered with Injustice DLC and we need it immediately, then we expect you will be prepared to stop what you’re doing (Unless of course you’re in the middle of a tournament match), and help us set it up. We have been WAY to lenient on this.

LABEL SETUPS. Station labeling makes for WAY easier match calling.

LABEL EQUIPMENT. We will provide masking tape and a sharpie at the desk. When people register for their tournaments and tell us what they will be providing, we give them the equipment to label their things at the same time.

The venue is a bar and restaurant, so thankfully we have food and booze at our MAXOUT venue. This place is awesome, so please buy lots of the delicious pizza and take care of your bar staff. NDP has been a fantastic venue, great service, great food and great atmosphere. Make sure you guys continue taking great care of them! PAY YOUR TABS. THERE IS NO EXCUSE TO FORGET PAYMENT TO THE ESTABLISHMENT. This not only makes us as a community look bad, but it can result in you being banned from future tournaments or patronage altogether.

See everybody there.
