Additional Rules

Connectivity Issues:

If players cannot connect to each other, the player with the least amount of games lost moves forward moves in the Winners bracket. In case of a tie, 1 player is advanced to the Loser’s bracket while the other player advances and then forfeits the next match in the Winner’s bracket, resulting in both players being sent to the Loser’s bracket.

In the event of connectivity issues either player should reach out to MediaXP designated Tournament Administrators to review the situation.

Disputes:

If there is a dispute arising during the Online Event, Players must submit a screenshot or share video footage to MediaXP, the administrator of the Online tournament, for review. Disputes will be resolved on a case by case basis by MediaXP administrators.

Disqualification:

No-shows and/or late arrivals will be given a loss if they do not report to their match within 10 minutes of being scheduled. If a player no-shows or is a late arrival to their loser’s bracket match, they will be disqualified.

Any player not adhering to the TEKKEN World Tour rules during the course of of the tournament is subject to disqualification at the discretion of MediaXP.
