Tournament Format

The tournament will be run in a double elimination format through Challonge.  Byes will be awarded as needed for the first round to the top seeds to fit the players properly into the brackets.  Players will be expected to play 1 game per week. Second Chance bracket can expect upwards of 2 games per week. Exception: if there are enough byes on the first round that there are 4 or less matches on the first round, will be expected to play two matches during the first week of the winners bracket.


The seeding of the Double Elimination bracket will be any%  time as listed on speedrun.com as of July 18, 2017 8:0) EDT(This is also when sign ups will be closed). In case of ties, the seeds for the tied players will be randomly determined among those players involved in the tie.  Players without a time on speedrun.com will be considered to have a time of 24 hours.



All Speed Runs Live (SRL) racing rules apply. All participants must use approved emulators/consoles and stream their races. We recommend that you locally save your race-stream file in the event that your stream is disconnected and you are “proofcalled” on your time. If you are not registered with SRL, please do so now. If you do not know how to set up or use an SRL account, please contact an organizer for assistance. Once the race is completed, please get in contact with a member of the admin team to update the standings and times.


Scheduled matches need to be played before the specified deadline for each round.

You will be given 7-10 days to play each match, depending on the round.  We realize that a tournament of this magnitude has a lot of people with a lot of schedules to work around. That being said, if you schedule a match with someone and then bail on the scheduled time without prior notice, you may be removed from the tournament at the organizer's discretion.


Any disputes will be handled by the admin team, who will have final say in all matters.  Should a member of the admin team be involved in the dispute, that member will have no say in the final decision.


Match Procedure

Discuss and schedule a time to play your match against your opponent. The preferred method of contact is via Discord. You may also use Twitter, Challonge, and a Twitch direct message. These will be the methods we will ask you to explore if you have any issues contacting your opponent.


When both participants are ready, begin a race in the #speedrunslive IRC channel on irc.speedrunslive.com or at http://www.speedrunslive.com/channel/ with the command:

.startrace scv4


Once the race channel has been created, join that specific channel. Within the channel, change the goal to any% with the command:

.setgoal any%


Once that has been completed, both participants should enter the race. This can be performed with the following command:



When both participants are ready to begin the race, have their stream available, and are waiting on a file on the file select screen, type the following command:



The Race bot will then begin to countdown in the race chat, and upon reaching 0 both players will begin the race. The conclusion of the race is when Simon catches the orb after defeating Dracula, at the point type the following command:



And that’s it. Once the race is completed, please get in contact with a member of the admin team to update the standings and times.

Some additional handy commands for the race:

  • .quit - If something arises and you need to remove yourself from the race, then use the .quit command.

  • .undone - Use if you prematurely type .done or .quit before the race has ended.


FAQs / Q&As

  • In the rare case of a race tie (as determined by the .done times recorded on SRL), racers will have to replay the race.  We don’t think this will happen, but wanted to spell that out.

  • If your Speedrun.com name does not match your Challonge name, please contact the mods so we can assign the correct PB to you.

  • If your Twitch and/or SRL name does not match your Challonge name, please contact the mods so we can make sure we have the right stream for the restream.

***Submit your PB here for seeding!***

If you do not have a time on Speedrun.com, your best time on Speedrunslive.com will be used. If you do not have a time there either, you will be seeded at the bottom.
