Procedure on the Day of the Tournament

(1) After signing up, speak to the “Tournament Mode Desk” and select “Join the Official Online Tournament”. This will move you to a preliminary round lobby.


(2) Participants will be automatically split into different preliminary round lobbies to start the first preliminary round matches.

*The first preliminary round starts at 12:30PM, so we ask you to enter the lobby by then.


(3) After the first preliminary round, the top 8 participants in each preliminary round lobby will move to the second preliminary round lobbies to start the second preliminary round matches.


(4) After the second preliminary round, the top 8 participants in each preliminary round lobby will move to the third preliminary round lobby to start the third preliminary round matches.


(5) After the third preliminary round, the top 8 participants will move to the final round lobby to start the final tournament matches.

*The final tournament will be held at the Circle Match operated by the Tournament staff.

*The final tournament concludes this entire Online Tournament.


Preliminary Rounds

Participants will randomly fight against other participants in the same preliminary round lobby for 25 minutes. They can obtain wins by winning the matches.

Their rank will be determined by the number of wins at the end of the round, and the top 8 participants will be qualified for the next round.


When you win a match, you can obtain one win if the opponent has no wins, and in other cases you can get the same number of wins as the opponent has.

*You can check the wins you currently have on the upper right corner of the screen while you are waiting for a match.

*When the number of wins is the same between two players, the one who reached that number of wins earlier will take priority.


When there are less than 8 participants in a preliminary round lobby, all the players who are in the lobby will be qualified for the next round regardless of the number of wins obtained.

*When there is only one participant, the player will be qualified for the next round after waiting for 25 minutes without playing a match.


Final Tournament

The final round is held in a tournament style (single-elimination).

The matches in the final tournament will use the Circle Match.

The Tournament staff will announce the next opponents, so please join the Circle operated by the Tournament staff according to the instruction.

*Please note that you will lose by default if, after the announcement, you refuse to join the Circle or you spend five minutes without any preparation for the match

*Please note in advance that, if there are any participants using the same fighter name, the announcement will be made using their account IDs.


*In all the matches, the player who knocks down the opponent first wins, and the round time is 300 counts.

*Please note that, once you enter a preliminary round lobby or the final round lobby, you cannot change the party members.



For smooth operation of the Tournament, we ask you to follow the instructions of the Tournament staff.

*Any participant who is deemed by the Tournament staff to be preventing the operation of the Tournament may be disqualified.


In each preliminary round, you can still return to the Tournament even if you lost the connection due to network errors, etc. However, you may not be able to return depending on the progress of the Tournament.


If you exit the lobby while you are playing a match in the final tournament, the player who exited will be disqualified even if this is due to network errors or any other reasons.

However, rematch will be accepted only in the following cases.

(1) If both players in the match exit the lobby and reconnect within five minutes

(2) If, despite of cancellation of the match, both players still remain in the lobby.


If a match in the final tournament starts before the Tournament staff enters the audience seats in the Circle Match, the match will be regarded as no contest to start a rematch.


If a match is cancelled multiple times due to unstable connection during the match, you may be disqualified at the discretion of the Tournament team.


You may be disqualified if you use a fighter name that is against public policy, infringing the third party rights, or otherwise deemed inappropriate by the Tournament staff.
