WIRELESS CONTROLLER POLICY:
Wireless controllers MUST be disconnected with a USB player upon completion of the match.
Dualshock 4 controllers must be deleted from the Playstation 4 devices list upon completion of the match. There is no way for someone to both disconnect a Bluetooth controller AND delete it from the device menu. When the controller is disconnected, it will still be on the device menus.
If you have a wired arcade stick, please help reduce the problem of wireless controller interference by following these steps after a match:
- Go the the PS4 main menu and go to settings
- Go to devices -> Bluetooth devices
- Delete any and all Dualshock 4 controllers from the list>
If both players are using PS4 wired arcade sticks, this step is not necessary.
We’ve graciously allowed players to continue using wireless controllers despite having interference problems in the past. Although we currently have no plans to ban wireless controllers like other tournaments, we will be much more strictly enforcing this policy at this and future events. If you interrupt a match with your wireless controllers because you didn’t follow policy, you’re subject to be DQed from the tournament.
What to look forward to at KCGameOn:
Q: I thought you switched venues to KCI Expo Center?
A: We did, just for Kansas City Onslaught (KO). MAXOUT was the pilot run for KCI Expo Center as a venue. Going forward, KO will be the tournament utilizing this space.
Q: Does this mean MAXOUT is going to be at Cerner WHQ from now on?
A: Not necessarily. As the smaller of the two events, MAXOUT will be utilizing the spaces that KCGameOn secures for the smaller KCGameOn events. We’ll always let you know ahead of time what venue MAXOUT is being held in. Kansas City Onslaught is locked in for the KCI expo center!
Q: The registration process is confusing…
A: Please refer to this video for guided instructions:
Q: Does registering on the KCGameOn website also register me for games?
A: KCGameOn registration is just to get into the event. Although we hope to have a pre-registration system for MAXOUT side games that makes this process a little bit easier, you will still need to check in with the MAXOUT tournament organizers and pay the tournament entry fee to be placed in a bracket.
Q: Am I allowed to bring a setup for casuals?
A: Absolutely! Follow the same registration guidelines for MAXOUT competitors and feel free to place your setup in the approved space for free play casuals. Please note that bringing a setup that is not utilized for tournament use does not guarantee you a venue fee refund.
Q: I’m entered in KCGameOn PC gaming tournaments as well? Is that going to affect anything?
A: Unfortunately we have to adhere to timelines to make sure brackets get run on time. You’re allowed to enter as many fighting games as you wish at MAXOUT and we’ll hold matches accordingly. However we can’t guarantee this for PC gaming tournaments. If you enter both MAXOUT fighting games and PC gaming tournaments, please know that you do so at your own risk. We will be accommodating as possible but we may need to DQ you to keep brackets running smoothly.
Q: Do you guys run Smash?
A: Smash is run independently from the MAXOUT staff and may or may not be at KCGameOn in some capacity. If you’re interested in playing Smash Bros, please refer to the KCGameOn event page for details. We will not be handling registration or running brackets for Smash Bros games
Q: Can I bring outside food and drink into the venue?
A: You sure can! Keep in mind that free snacks, soda, and bottled water are provided, and that your venue fee pays for a catered meal. Also keep in mind that alcoholic beverages are prohibited outside the venue.
Q: I have a question that’s not answered here!
A: Feel free to post in the event page comments and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
