Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 Ruleset

A. Tournament Rules

  1. Tournament Length

    This tournament is double-elimination.

  2. Set Length

    All tournament sets will be best-of-three, until the Top Four are determined, at which point tournament sets will be best-of-five. Rules below do not change between these two set formats.

  3. Set Procedure

    1. Players select their characters and set controls
    2. Players play the first game of the set
    3. Both players must keep their characters throughout the entire set.
    4. The next game is played.
    5. Repeat steps three through four for all subsequent games until the set is complete.
  4. Pausing and the Home Button

    Pause setting will be set to off. However, if it is not, pausing is only legal for the purpose of summoning a Tournament Official, or in the case of a controller malfunction. All other pauses will incur a game loss to the player who pauses the game. If the pause causes the opponent to lose, the pausing player receives a game loss. This rule also applies to controllers which cause the game to revert to the PS4 home screen.

  5. Color Request Clause

    Players may request to adjust game settings to accommodate for color blindness. This request must be made before the game starts.

  6. Warm-ups

    Warm-up periods, button checks, and “handwarmers” may not exceed 60 seconds on the game clock. Violation of this rule may result in a game loss at the discretion of the Tournament Official.

  7. Tardiness

    Anyone who is not present for their set by ten minutes past the scheduled start time of the round is subject to a total disqualification from the event.
