Here are the set of rules I’m using at TvC tournaments I run. If you guys disagree on any of these, feel free to discuss.
**-2 out of 3 games, winner must keep characters.
**-Handicap 3, default game settings.
-If you pause the game, you are at your opponent’s mercy. He can take a free win on that round, or let it play. If he wants to take the round, he must not continue playing after the pause. Doing so forfeits your right to contest the pause.
-Performing any glitch that keeps the game from being played is banned. Its pretty obvious what these are. Most of them thus far make a rainbow character fly away to the moon! If you do one of these on purpose or on accident and cant recover from it quickly, you forfeit the round.
-If the **Burning Ruins stage **comes up, either player may opt to reroll the stage selection at any time before the round actually starts. If the round actually starts, the game must be played. This stage has huge issues for colorblind players, and even non-colorblind players in mirror matches. It is also the only stage with slowdown.
-If both players with to select Yatterman-1, they must agree on which color/mech they wish to use. If an agreement can not be reached, a coin will be flipped to see who gets to select their color first. [media=youtube]cZ5tKZVIVlY"[/media] to find out why this is a needed rule.
-You can run your tournament in either 16:9 or 4:3 aspect ratio, but make sure that you announce which you are using before the event, and make double sure that EVERY station you are running it on is set to the same aspect ratio.
-(Optional Rule) “The Grego” - Accidentally changing point characters as the round starts doesnt mean you get to reset and reselect your characters. You have to play it. Remember, holding either the DOWN direction or the PARTNER button will cause this.
-(NEW RULE) If a double KO occurs, neither player is awarded the win and match will be replayed with the same characters.
-(Director’s Choice Rule) Anything wii-mote related.
-(Director’s Choice Rule) 4:3 or 16:9 mode. Either is fine, but there are differences, so make sure you announce which format you are using and make sure ALL of your stations are set to the same mode.
