These are the rules for the Go4SFV (PS4) North America Cup #17. We make every effort to ensure the rules are complete and up to date but this may not always be the case. You should also check the Info Page and News for additions, exceptions and modifications that may apply. The rules are a guideline and the decisions by admins may differ from them depending on the circumstances. If you have any questions about the rules, please write a support ticket.

1. Cup Rules

1.1. No Show

Both players have to add each other on PlayStation® Network/Steam/Capcom Fighter Network. If your opponent does not show up after 15 minutes, you must enter the result as your opponent did not appear in time. Do not enter a default win for yourself. Please open a protest ticket with screenshot evidence that the player did not show up.

1.2. Disqualification

To keep the delay during the cup as short as possible we reserve the right to disqualify players from the tournament. This will only be done in cases when a player shows no real effort to complete a match or is obviously avoiding their opponent. In more drastic cases this can be applied to both players.

1.3. Match Result

After each match, both players have to enter and confirm the match result. Always record the result using a screenshot.

1.4. Screenshots

All match media (screenshots, demos, etc) must be kept for at least 14 days. In general, you should upload the match media from a match to the match page as soon as possible. Faking or manipulating match media is of course forbidden and will result in severe penalties. Match media should be named clearly based on what it is. It is not possible to file a protest or write a support ticket to complain about bad match media naming. However, if an admin is hindered in his work because of bad match media names, penalty points can be assigned.

We suggest to take a screenshot of all situations during a game, the screenshots will be used by and admin in protests and should be uploaded on request.

1.5. Match Closure

A match has to be closed within 10 minutes after the match has finished, if there is no protest from the players. The staff team will close matches without a protest, if the deadline is reached and the match wasn't closed by the participants. A player has only 10 minutes to complain about a missing screenshots, incorrect result, etc., so please make sure to check everything directly after your match is played. If the opposing player does not open a protest nor accept the score it has to be reported via support ticket immediately!

We strongly recommend installing the ESL Play App to check match statuses and report results, if necessary.
