The 2012 Evo season is rapidly approaching, and we thought that now would be a good time to announce the ruleset for Street Fighter X Tekken. The tournament this year will be a 2on2 team tournament (not scramble mode), so get your partners ready as this very well could be a very interesting event. Expect salt factors to be at an all time high, with team coordinated tagging and combos thrown playing an integral role in winning. Gems will not be used at Evo 2012, so start practicing up for the biggest and baddest tournament of the year!
Registration will open up next week, so make sure not to miss out on this epic event.
UPDATE: We forgot to add the seeding rules for Evo points. As always, you are free to use whatever rule set works best for your tournament. If you are running a 1v1 tournament, award points to individuals as usual. If you are running a 2v2 tournament, each member of the placing teams will receive points independently (so 2 sets of 1st place points, 2 sets of 2nd place points, etc.) For seeding purposes at EVO, we will use the point total of the person who REGISTERS for their team. So if Justin Wong has 1,000,000 points and he registers his SFxT team, the team of Justin and whoever he picks will have 1,000,000 points. If Floe has 10 points and he registers his SFxT team, Floe’s team will be seeded with 10 points (even if he picks Justin Wong!).
