Quick Rules

Each week the Top 8 of a different US region will be played during Wednesday's live broadcast

Only legal residents of the USA and Canada are eligible to compete in this tournament. Players must be at least 13 years of age or older.

Before signing up for a region please keep in mind the following. If you are found to be competing in more than one region's tournament during the same day then you will be disqualified from each tournament for that week. Also, make sure the region you choose to participate in is one that you are able to travel to on your own finances. There will be no housing or travel assistance for participants getting to their GameStop location for the Regional Finals.

Match Progress
Once the tournament begins, check “My Matches” and contact your opponent via ESL Chat, Discord, or Playstation Network to start the match. Before a game begins, verify that all of the settings are correct. The round time limit is 240 seconds. Stage Interactions are to remain on.

Players have up to ten minutes to show up for a match before forfeiting the first game. Additional games will be forfeited every additional five minutes if the player does not show up. In the event of a no-show or disconnect, refer to the rules and contact an admin via support ticket immediately.

Once the bracket reaches the Winners Semifinals and LB RO4a, the remainder of the tournament will be played on Wednesday’s broadcast starting at 17:00 PDT. You MUST confirm your attendance within 24 hours prior to the start of the show.

Character Selection
Players may use any character to compete in Gamestop Hometown Heroes: Injustice 2 (All new characters will have a 30 day ban period after release). Players may select hidden cursor (Blind Pick) during character selection. The winner keeps their character. The loser has the option to select a new character if they so choose.

Stage Selection
Both players must select random select. Injustice 2 will then randomly choose the stage between the two random selections.

Reporting Scores
To report the score, enter a number (1,2,3) to specify how many games you won and lost. Both players are expected to report the score.

If there are any inconsistencies in the reported scores, contact us via a support ticket. In the event of a dispute, be prepared to provide pictures of post-game summaries or video evidence from the match. Uploading clips to twitch.tv or youtube.com is the best way to provide video evidence.
