Welcome to the Rockman 2 Any% Tournament! The tournament is open to players of all skill levels. The category is "Any% (Difficult)" played on the Japanese version. To participate you will need to be able to stream your gameplay (either from a console or emulator). Please familiarize yourself with the rules at SpeedRunsLive.com (SRL) as it will be used for official timing. In the case of a tie on SRL Admins will review the race. Admins reserve the right to review any race in which players finish within five seconds of each other. Reviewed races will be judged via frame count and if no clear winner can be determined it will be requested players play a tie-breaker game.

You will be expected to join a Discord server (https://discord.gg/n7Ecx2U), which we will use as our main source of communication. The matches will be streamed, with commentary, to the SpeedGaming Twitch channels (twitch.tv/SpeedGaming, SpeedGaming2, SpeedGaming3, SpeedGaming4).  After a race players may choose to be interviewed, if there is time.


The tournament format based on GSL is a seeded 4-person group double elimination. Seeding into the Group stage is done by PB rank according to the Mega Man Leaderboards when signups close.  Runners with no PB will be randomized and placed at the bottom of the seeding.  Runners who want to submit a PB that is not on the leaderboard must contact the tournament organizers with a video before the deadline.


Here is an example of how seeded groups will be formed. The first set of matches for each group will be top seed vs. bottom seed and middle seed vs. middle seed. This chart explains how the matchups/advancements/eliminations are determined.


Each match is "best of 3" -- a player must win 2 races against their opponent (so either 2 or 3 races will be played).  Players are not required to schedule all the races back to back, though they may do so for convenience.   The FINAL MATCH of the tournament will be "best of 5" -- a player must win 3 races against their opponent in order to win the entire tournament.


Players are in charge of contacting their opponent to decide a time and date to race.  The match-ups are shown under the "Matches" tab next to each group. A match submission form and a schedule of submitted matches will be made available on the Discord server when the signups close.


Seeding in the bracket stage will be determined by performance in the group stage and ties are broken by PB rank according to the Mega Man Leaderboards when the group stage ends.


If a player is unable to participate in a match before the cutoff for that stage, they will forfeit that match. Breaking any of the SpeedRunsLive rules will result in at least a forfeit, possibly disqualification. In the case of a soft lock, passwords are allowed to return to the start of the stage with the items/e-tanks you had prior to the soft lock. Save states are not allowed and their use results in a forfeit.


You may play on console, either with a cartridge or flashcart (EverDrive, PowerPak), as well as on emulator (FCEUX is recommended) or virtual console. You can use the US version of Mega Man 2 on difficult mode (you lose over 40 seconds to text by doing this unless your opponent agrees to play on it too) but Mega Man 2 normal mode is not allowed.
