Counter-Picking is now allowed for solo tournaments
You may now change your character at will for every solo tournament of the World Game Cup. But please note that during a set, you will only be allowed to change character after a loss.
We finally decided to go with this rule because it was logical for us to follow the international, standardized trend.
The rules & regulations of the team tournaments will still remain the same: no two same characters and unique character/character lock (except for Ultimate Marvel Versus Capcom 3& the King Of Fighters series games)
This new rule obviously means that it is now useless to give your characters picks for the solo tournaments at registration.
The date for the 5€ price raise (only applicable to solo tournaments) is moving from January the 1st to January the 22nd. The current prices will stay valid until January the 22nd 2012!
Registration will close on February the 8th 2012.
A more « international » set of rules
Here is a quick reminder of this year’s new rules & regulations!
Henceforth all the solo tournaments will follow the same rules & be divided into two distinct phases:
- A pools phase using double elimination, with only two players coming out of each bracket.
- A final bracket where the players from the pools will be seeded into a new double elimination bracket (with a life reset) .
All the team tournaments will use single elimination rules.
