WHAT IS RED BULL PROVING GROUNDS
Red Bull Proving Grounds is the name of the regional Qualifier tournaments being hosted by the best tournament organizers (TOs) across North America where amateur players can prove themselves to be best in the country to earn a seat in the Red Bull Battle Grounds bracket. The TOs own and operate their own events; Red Bull is supporting as a partner.

PHASE 1 – QUALIFIER TOURNAMENTS
This year, the series has been greatly expanded. Last year, 1 representative was sent from Canada. This year, 3 participating cities (Toronto / Montreal / Vancouver) will send THREE representatives to show who the best Region is. The top 3 will form a team that represents their region in the Red Bull Proving Grounds finals. Qualifiers work just like last year. A series of Ranking Battles taking place once per month.

Red Bull Proving Grounds has doubled in size. There are now 12 Regions to last year’s 6 and they’ve been split into Divisions of East & West. The 6 teams from each Division will face off against each other in a Round Robin tournament in Santa Monica California. The top team to come out of that tournament will move onto the Championship Match.

PHASE 3 – CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
The 2 qualifying teams from each Division will face off in the FInals to determine the top team in Red Bull Proving Grounds. This will be a 3v3 Team Tournament but the winning team must win by 2 sets for a conclusive winner.

DISCLAIMER FOR US RESIDENTS:
We are always happy to have friends from the United States participate in tournaments. However; it must be noted that US residents are not eligible for Red Bull Proving Grounds points. They can however secure a monetary share from the collected prize pools.


Tournament Rules / Equipment Rules:

Played on Playstation 4

Tournament Format:
 Strict Rules will be implemented once the official tournament has started, nobody will be granted special treatment. Once your name or gamertag is announced, you will need to report to the assigned station or else you will be disqualified. A 5 minutes warning will be given before proceeding with the disqualification.

Double elimination tournament:
 2 out of 3 games per match
 3 out of 5 games per Winners and Losers Finals
 3 out of 5 games grand finals

Bring your own sticks/controllers:
 The console equipment will be labeled and registered to ensure its safety. However, please be careful with your sticks. Furthermore, if you know you’re attending and you do not have a stick to use, make sure you ask other players or juge to help you find a controller.. All singles matches will enforce a 5 minutes rule and if you can’t find a stick within that time you will be disqualified. This is an advance warning and will not be brought up again.

Broken Sticks/Buttons:
 If you have any stick/button problems at any time, STOP PLAYING, get up and inform a bracket director. The stick will be fixed/changed and the Judge will DECIDE the outcome. Please respect the Judge’s decision.

After Match Results:
 Please make sure to update the tournament directors with your match results. If we don’t get an update from the winner or the loser and it will delays our work, both players will be marked as Losers of their match and therefore be eliminated.

Controllers / Converters Rules:

Converters:
 The Brook Converters and boards are allowed on a temporary basis. If game systems patch them out before the event, rendering them useless, they will be banned. So be very careful and have a backup plan.

Controllers:
 Great news for pad players out there. Since the Evolution Championship Series staff has made the decision to legalize DualShock 4 usage at their event this year then we will allow it as we follow their rules/regulations. Though normally banned due to their Bluetooth capabilities, folks who rely on these devices to compete will now be able to utilize their controller of choice. You will need to bring your own USB cable.

But that doesn’t mean there won’t be regulations in place to ensure they don’t interfere with the competition. It will be every DualShock 4 users’ responsibility to make sure their controller is no longer paired with the console after their match. Anyone who doesn’t risks automatically disqualified from the tournament.

Mapping buttons is allowed but Autofire / Turbo are not allowed.

Additional Rules:
 1. There will be no ties in any tournament. Anyone refusing to play any Match (including the finals) will be disqualified and forfeit all rights to any titles or prizes they might have otherwise earned for that tournament.
 2. A draw match as determined by the game must be replayed, unless the game awards the draw to a player.
 3. Inevitable Defeat rule is in effect. This is defined as when a player has legally won the round or match (i.e. landed a move that will kill the opponent) but pauses the game before the game awards the round won icon, will still be awarded the win. The most common occurrence of this rule is when Player 1 lands a super on Player 2, but the super animation is a grab and the damage isn’t awarded till the final hit connects, but the opponent has legally lost the round. If there is a dispute over whether the move would have knocked out the other player, a tournament official will unpause the match, see the result of the action, and proceed from there. If the attack does not kill the opponent, then the mid game pause rules are in effect.
 4. Collusion of any kind with your competitors is considered cheating. If the Tournament Organizer determines that any competitor is colluding to manipulate the results or intentionally underperforming, the collaborating players may be immediately disqualified. This determination is to be made at the sole discretion of the Tournament Director. Anyone disqualified in this manner forfeits all rights to any titles or prizes they might have otherwise earned for that tournament.
 5. Tournament Organizer has a zero tolerance policy toward violence, threats of violence, intimidation, and other forms of thuggery. Any threat of violence, extreme intimidation, or violence of any kind will result in an immediate and lifetime ban.
 6. You must have in your procession at all time your Console Gamer Badge or we will not allow you to play casuals or tournament matches.

If you have any questions, please contact us and we will do our best to help you.
