Tournament rules and hitboxes


#1

So today I’m finally drilling the holes for my hitbox and I was wondering what the rules are for tournaments.

My keyboard setup is currently

-----SE
FO LP MP HP 3P
TH LK MK HK 3K TA

with SE being select, FO being focus, TH being throw, and TA being taunt.

Questions are-

  1. Do any tournaments have a ban on hitboxes?
  2. How heavily are you allowed to mod your stick? I would love to keep my PPP and KKK buttons but I can adapt, of course… I’d just rather not.

Any help is appreciated :slight_smile:

Most tournaments only ban the use of turbo or any kind of function that does a bunch of inputs for you, but its very rare for anyone to ban PPP/KKK macros. No one can guarantee you that all tournaments will use a specific ruleset, but you should be fine. Any tournament organizer worth his salt posts up all the controller rules on their tournament thread or whatever they are using to promote their tournament so you can always check beforehand to be prepared.
