General Rules

  1. Beat Saber World Cup is a team tournament where players from/in the same country will compete against each other in 4v4 best of 7/9/11 matches.
  2. All players will play in Tournament Assistant, and scores will be taken from the in-game scoring system.
  3. The winner will be decided by which team has the highest combined total score.
  4. All matches will take place on the weekend (Friday Night, Saturday, Sunday. Subject to change in extenuating circumstances.) This is to ensure that all matches can be streamed.
  5. Match scheduling will be decided by cooperation between the Team Captains as well as the Tournament Staff.
    • While any time is fine during the weekend, the ideal situation is for all matches in a specific weekend to take place as close to each other as possible.
    • Once both teams agree on a time, they will contact Amanatsu at least 48 hours prior to their agreed match time.
    • nce a match time has been agreed upon by both teams and the staff, any changes must also be submitted 24 hours before the originally scheduled date and time.
    • Rescheduled matches, again, need to be agreed upon by all parties.
  6. The following mods/plugins are banned from use in the tournament. If you use one of them, your entire team will receive a map loss. You will then have to use a sub in their place, remove the mods/plugins, and then that player(s) can return to play the following song.
    • Intro/Outro Skip
    • Note Slice Visualizer
    • Song Chart Visualizer
    • Any mod/plugin that affects scoring ability
    • Any mod/plugin that disables score submission
  7. All games in the bracket stage must be streamed to Twitch. In special cases if Twitch is not allowed in your country we will allow streaming to other services (ie. China and BiliBili)
    • Streams may not have obstructive overlays due to the stream sync technology that we're using.
    • In the same vein, streams must all be in first person view. Unfortunately we will not be allowing third person or avatar use at this time.
    • Please keep your stream FOV and other camera settings within relative acceptable standards. If you are unsure if what you have is considered "acceptable" then please ask a staff member.
  8. If a map ends in a tie, the map will be replayed.
  9. If a player disconnects or otherwise loses connection to the lobby, loses power, etc. the map will be played as normal and the player who disconnected must decide to use a replay or take the map loss.
  10. Maps can only be chosen once, either through ban or pick.
  11. There will be a 15 minute grace period for players to arrive if their team has less than the required amount of players to play a match (4).
    • If you have 4 players, you must begin the match regardless of who those players are (planned starters, subs, etc.)
    • If you cannot field a team of at least 4 players before the 15 minute grace period has ended, your team will forfeit and receive a loss.
  12. If a player disconnects, loses power, or any other event which causes the team to dip below the minimum required amount of players, an additional 15 minute grace period will be granted in order to allow the player to reconnect. If this continues to happens repeatedly, the match can be called at the discretion of the coordinator.
  13. Substituting players is allowed on a per-map basis. Any player may be substituted freely between maps. If a map needs to be replayed for some reason, including but not limited to: general replay, tie, etc. then the same players must play in the replay. If the same roster is not available for some reason (injury, disconnect, player has to leave, etc.) then that team will receive a map loss.
  14. Penalities can be issued at the discretion of the coordinator for players or teams who cause consistent excessive delays.
  15. Teams will be allowed one warmup song each, not to exceed 5 minutes per song. If neither team wishes to participate in these warmups, or wants to skip them, they are free to.
  16. Each team will be allowed 1 total replay per match. The Team Captain is the only member who can call a replay. Players may discuss these decisions with their Team Captains.
  17. Unplanned situations which require additional rules to be considered or created on the fly are subject to handling by the Tournament Staff and your Coordinator. Their rules are to be followed without question.
  18. If the tournament staff or your coordinator has made a decision on a ruling, it is final. We will not overturn final rulings.
  19. All Tournament Staff, including but not limited to, Staff, Coordinators, Casters, Map Poolers, etc. are all to be treated with respect. These people are putting in their own time for your benefit. Everybody is open to criticism, but nobody is open to disrespect.
