Hello and welcome to TouchArcade's Street Fighter 4 Volt: Battle Royal Tournament! This is TA's second tournament for SF4Volt and I'd like to make it the best tourney we've had. So please, continue to read on if you want to participate in the fun.
The BreakdownThis Tournament will be just one bracket for all the players of the Toucharacde community such as TenOnez, Slrc1, PsxSquall, Cyrus and others of the like. This Bracket will be a 2 round/best of 5, Double Elimination Setup, I will explain more about this later. So lets test your skills against the best of the best and have the opportunity to show everybody what your made of, take your place among the top dogs of the Volt community. A lot more matches are to be had and a lot of fun as well.
1.) Each person may only use the same character twice! Which means in our best 3 out of 5 setup, you can only use Cammy twice and Balrog Once. Which means in order to win this tournament you must have at least 2 characters that you know like the palm of your hand at your disposal!
D4(Cammy) Beats Apprunner(Cammy) Score=1-0
D4(Cammy) Beats Apprunner(Cammy) Score=2-0
D4(Fei Long) Beat Apprunner(Deejay) Score=3-0
(D4Gamerz Wins Set and proceeds to next opponent)
-Notice how in this example I used a total of 2 characters and I never used the same character more than twice
D4(Cammy) loses to Apprunner(Cammy) Score=0-1
D4(Cammy) loses to Apprunner(Cammy) Score=0-2
D4(Fei Long) Beat Apprunner(Deejay) Score=1-2
D4(Fei Long) Beats Apprunner(Deejay) Score=2-2
D4(Balrog) Beat Apprunner(Viper) Score=2-3
(Apprunner Wins Set and proceeds to next opponent)
-Notice how in this example both D4 and Apprunner used a total of 3 characters and both never used the same character more than twice
2.) You are not allowed to Switch Brackets

4.) Laggy Games, If the match is too laggy or unplayable, you have 15 seconds(in game time) to quit the match, you cannot have already lost a round or have lost more than 2/3 of your life. You may then try to reconnect with your opponent at an attempt to get a better connection and restart the set or whichever game you left off at.(If you have better suggestions for this rule please share, I will consider changing them)
5.) Disconnects: If you happen to Disconnect it is up to your opponent to decide whether to take the Win(Which is 1 game not the set) or Continue to play from where you left off.

-To be Determined(There may be none at all)
Regarding replays, while there is no rule that says it is absolutely mandatory to save the replays and upload them, it would make for great entertainment and viewing pleasure. Our good friend CaptYadierPR has volunteered to capture all our replays for the tournament and upload them to Youtube as a playlist for easier viewing. With the sheer amount of participants and the many matches that are to be had, this task is a lot of work, and you would be doing him a great favor by saving and uploading your tournament matches with a simple description such as "SF4V-BR Game 1". Again this isn't mandatory but it would help Capt out a lot. As well as give the people outside and inside of TouchArcade something to watch
1.) What is double elimination?
- Double elimination simply means you can only lose to games before you are eliminated.
2.) What is single Elimination?
- Single elimination simply means you may only lose 1 game before you are eliminated.
3.) What is does best oo 5 mean?
-Whoever wins 3 out of games first, wins!
--Feel Free to ask your questions and I will answer them as soon as possible.

So lets all make sure were on the same page here before we get this tournament started. Here, I'll be giving brief explanation of how the brackets work. So please read through the whole post thoroughly and Carefully to prevent any confusion or mishaps in the future.
How it Works
1.) As we all should know by now, the format for this tournament is a 2 Round, Best 3/5, Double Elimination, and you Can only use the Same Character twice per set.
2.) Everybody starts out in Winner's Bracket, Continuing to win in Winner's bracket will make things a lot easier for in the long run but if you lose while in Winners Bracket you get set down to Loser's Bracket.
3.)After each loser's bracket game the winner moves on to the next match but if you lose while in the Loser's bracket you are out of the tournament.
4.) In Grand Finals, the two participants will be the winner from Winner's Bracket and The Winner of Loser's Bracket.
Since this is a 2 round/Double elimination setup Grand Finals may get a little confusing for some of you not familiar with the way tournaments are setup, so let me explain this as best as I can. -
In Grand Finals if the winner of that game(2 Rounds) is from the winner's bracket that person win's the tournament. If the the person from winner's bracket loses that game, they would technically be sent to "Grand Finals Losers Bracket" and the person from Losers bracket will now technically be in "Grand Finals Losers" from here they will now play another game against each other, whoever wins that game(2 Rounds) would be crowned the champion.
If you are having trouble understanding or have questions, please do not be afraid to ask, be better to sort this all out now instead of last minute.
Too give you An Idea of what the brackets will look like And an Example of what I've just explained above:

72 hours seems like a better timeframe per match. Imagine if someone is busy all weekend and they still want to participate...
