So that means there is guaranteed 16 players finals for both, to be certified?

The tournament needs to have a dedicated qualifying portion and then take a minimum of 16 players into a separate finals portion.

Yes, both with take 16 finalists.

Anyone wanna let me crash for a night Wednesday? There’s no Chicago flight early enough on Thursday to make classics match play so I have to fly in late Wednesday if I want to play, but my hotel is booked with someone who’s staying Thur-Mon. Would love to save some money and crash on a couch or floor for a night :smiley:

haha you caught my drift and already updated the high stakes on the website? so fast!

Can’t wait, lots of fun ahead, will be there for the full 4 days!

What is Festival of Fights? Google has come up dry on me.

Here’s last years info on the festival.


If anyone thought the IFPA World’s use of the term “Sudden Death” was confusing (for a best 2 of 3 add-on), try understanding Festival of Fights rules on Sudden Death for Smash Bros:

“Self-Destruct Moves & Sudden Death: If a game ends with a self-destruct move, the results screen will determine the winner. If a sudden death occurs, a standard sudden death play-off game applies. If a game goes to Sudden Death, the winner is determined by stocks and percentage at the time the game ends. If both players are tied in stocks, the player with the lower percentage is the winner. In the event of a percentage tie, or a game in which both players lose their last stock simultaneously, a 1-stock tiebreaker will be played with a 3-minute time limit. The results of an in-game 300% Sudden Death do not count. If Sudden Death occurs in a Sudden Death game, this process is repeated.”


An FGC and a Pinball event in one place? I’m a fan haha

On the discord Alex (RGL) said there will be a FoF announcement end of next week (so ~10/22).

I would expect the popular modern fighting games to be represented in some way: Smash Ultimate, SFV, Tekken, GG Strive (?), Injustice, UMvC3 (oldie but goodie; RGL runs events for it) etc…basically anything RGL runs regular weekly/monthlies for.

I’m curious to see if spectating will be allowed for the FGC / INDISC events or if you will need a separate spectator pass to go from one “side” to another (if that’s how it’s setup). Personally it’d be cool for me to go say high to all my old FGC buddies.

Would also be hilarious to see some sort mini-exhibition where like the top FGC players try to play pinball and vice versa…streamed of course. :wink:

Cross promotion opportunities are there but who knows if either audience will respond since the genres are pretty different (yet similar in some ways).


Your one pass will get you into both events.


my sons will be so jealous. lol
