The first of hopefully many Street Fighter V tournaments in 2017 hosted by This event begins on April 22nd at 8pm EST. All players Ultra Gold and under are welcome (you must have been below 7499 LP for at least a week to enter). Winners will receive $10 in the form of an eGiftCard for Amazon or Papa Johns. Please enter with your CFN name so we know how to find you.

The event will be hosted on so be sure to be there or have some other method of communication with Ghoulston so that you can get to your matches quickly. Commentary will be provided by loldbz, Foxx, and Ghoulston. The bracket will be shuffled at the start of the tournament.

Please read the following information below to prepare for the event.


  • Best 2 out of 3 games in each set until top 4.
  • Top 4 sets are Best 3 out of 5.
  • 3 Rounds, 99 Seconds, Character Select On.
  • All characters playable.
  • Skies of Valor, Kanzuki Beach, and Flamenco Tavern (when using Vega) are banned.
  • If you want to change characters after a match then you may. If the winner of the previous round decides to change characters then that person must declare their character before going from the lobby into character select. The loser is not required to announce their character choice ahead of time.
  • You may not enter if you have been above 7499 LP a week before the tournament.


  • Players are expected to be present on the main page of at the beginning of the tournament.
  • Players will be told at the start of the tournament the rules laid out in this Challonge page.
  • The tournament will begin with only one match being streamed per round until only the top 8 competitors remain. (If 8 or less players enter then the whole tourney is streamed)
  • Players who finish their match in the early rounds are to stop and wait for all matches in that round to finish. Only when told by tournament organizers may you proceed to your next match.
  • All matches in Top 8 will be streamed.


If the tournament organizers see an extreme case of lag (like 10 seconds of delay  kind of extreme lag), cheating, or failure to comply with the aforementioned rules then they are subject to either being sent to the Losers bracket automatically or being disqualified for the entire tournament. If you are late to your match by 3 minutes then you risk the same penalty.

Lag is going to happen, and you should be prepared to deal with it. The information above is referring to intense cases of lag as determined by tournament organizers and casters. Please do not complain about a few frames worth of lag.

Again, you must be below 7499 LP (Ultra Gold and under) to enter.


The winner of this event will receive a $10 eGiftCard for Amazon or Papa Johns. You will also be eligible for a game from our Vidya Shorts Steam Prize Pool found at
