Format and Rules

TOPANGA ASIA LEAGUE shakes up the TOPANGA rules, allowing for character changes for the first time. The overall format is a round-robin league. Each match is a first-to-7 game set. If both players reach match point (6 wins), one player must take a 2-game advantage to claim the set (deuce rules). Every three games, the losing player within those three games is allowed to switch characters. Each player is allowed two characters, decided before the start of the tournament.

Prizes

1st Place – 1,000,000 yen (~10,000 USD)
2nd Place – 300,000 yen (~3,000 USD)
3rd Place – 150,000 yen (~1,500 USD)
