What were the EVO Rules for SSFIV?

What are they?
More importantly, is the Ultra Locked to the winner.
I’m having a debate with my community about Locking the ultra for winners.
Only loser can change Ultras.

Is that right?
I looked for official rules everywhere and got nothing.
If somebody can please enlighten me on this subject that would be great.


So you never thought to check Evo’s main site?

Edit: I decided I don’t feel like being a dick

Format: 2/3 Rounds, 2/3 Games, Double Elimination, 99 Seconds, No Handicap
Console: PlayStation 3
Rules: If the players do not agree on a stage within 15 seconds, the match will be random stage select.
Winner must keep the same character, but can select a new ultra in game 2 or 3, but has to pick the ultra before the opponent picks theirs. This does not apply to blind pick.

Was binding shoulder buttons on pad with 3xPunches and Kicks allowed?

AFAIK, yes.
