 TOURNAMENT RULES  
  • MATCH FORMAT —  All matches played will be best 3 out of 5, with all “Finals” (Winners, Loser’s, and Grand) also being best 3 out of 5.  Please wait until you are told to play your match before you do, and please do not come into the stream lobby until you are told to do so.
  • CONNECTION — Wired connections ONLY.  Fighting games need more precise movements than any other online genre.  Wi-Fi, no matter the speed, is never as consistent as a wired connection and is not nearly as dependable.  PLEASE have use an Ethernet connection.  Also, anyone who is found to be lagging (you KNOW if your connection is good or not) will have to be disqualified to maintain the integrity of the tournament, as well as the fun of all participants involved.
  • MATCH DISPUTES — It is highly encouraged that you win your match, report it, and leave immediately.  Evidence of who won can be falsified if you remain in a lobby longer than you need to.  Win, record video evidence via the PS4’s share feature, leave and then report it within the Discord.  Anyone caught cheating or falsifying evidence will be permanent disqualified from all RNTS tournaments.
  • SEEDING — All seeding within the RNTS series is randomized; everyone starts off at the same level.  You may have an easy run to Top 8 or you could face one hell of a gauntlet, roll the dice!
