You must stream your races, and they will be mirrored on one of the SpeedGaming channels. Ensure you have nothing over your game feed and no audio except for game audio when you are racing. It is also recommended that you locally save your race-stream file in the event that your stream is disconnected and you are “proofcalled” on your time. Once the race is completed, please contact the tournament admin to update the standings and times.

  8. No OoB and skips (except for Ibanna OoB finishes). However, if a skip is forced, you must pick a track that actually has a skip. List can be found at https://www.speedrun.com/swe1r/thread/pq7q4.

  11. Respect your opponent! Racism, discrimination, sexism or harassment of any kind will result in disqualification.

  12. You must be able to stream your race footage live, quality doesn't have to be good but it needs to be relatively fluid footage.

  13. Seeding into the bracket phase is determined by the number of wins in the group phase relative to the others in your group.

  14. Top 4 in the group will move onto the winner's bracket, 5th and 6th will move into the loser's bracket and 7th will be eliminated.


  1. First Track
    To select a circuit, a chance cube is rolled (coin flip) to decide who starts banning circuits. Each player alternates banning circuits until the loser choses the final ban, leaving one circuit remaining. 

  2. If the remaining circuit is the Invitational Circuit, the loser starts track ban. Otherwise, the winner starts the track ban. Each player alternates bans until one track remains. Any pod can be used. No skips.

  3. Permabans

After the first race of each set, both players may ban two tracks. Those bans are in effect for the rest of the match.

  1. Temp bans
    Following the first race and each subsequent race, the loser of the previous track bans 1 pod, the winner bans 1 track, the loser picks the track, then the loser may force either No Upgrades or skips. These selections are in effect only for the following race. Each player has 2 forces per match (3 in Bo13)

  2. Salty Runback
    Once per match, each player may choose to replay a track only if they have previously lost on that track in the match. Outside of this selection, no duplicate tracks may be selected. 

  3. The first player to achieve 5 wins is the winner! (7 in a Bo13).

  4. You are encouraged to schedule your matches at least 24 hours in advance (via speedgamings system).

  5. Matches may not be rescheduled within 24 hours of their scheduled start time without admin permission.

  6. Having a mic is preferable for the ban phases but not 100% necessary.
