4. BLIND DRAW
Brackets will be complete using a "blind draw". A blind draw tournament is organized in a way that the players are not ranked based on previous results or experience. the brackets are complete solely based on the luck of the draw.
5. TEAM SELECTION & COIN TOSS
A manual coin flip will precede each game. The coin flip winner can choose the "matchup" or defer the matchup choice to the coin flip loser. A "matchup" is defined as the two teams to play in the game.
CHOOSE OR DEFER
a. If the winner chooses the matchup, the winner is given the player one controller, and the loser chooses his choice of the two teams in the matchup.
b. If the winner defers the matchup choice, the winner is given the player two controller, the loser will then choose the matchup and the winner will select his choice of the two teams.
The winner of the coin flip chooses Cavs - Celtics as the "matchup" and takes player one controller. The loser takes player two controller and select his choice of the two teams first, in the "matchup".
6."ONE MATCHUP ONCE" RULE
The coin flip winner can only select a particular matchup once throughout the entire tournament. For example, if Player A wins the toss and selects Cavs - Celtics, player A cannot call that exact matchup for the rest of the tournament. Player B, however, is free to select that matchup later in the tournament
All controllers will be classic 3-button Genesis controllers.
If you must pause, you must clear it with your opponent and only when you have possession. 1st pause without notice is a warning, 2nd is an automatic 2-pt score from opponent, 3rd is potential forfeit of match.
9. SYSTEM MALFUNCTIONS
No emulation is used. If game/system malfunctions during game play, users record the current score of completed quarters and play remaining quarters. For example: game malfunctions in middle of 3rd quarter, users play 2 quarters again.
No turbo or 6-button controllers.
