Madden 2012 Tournament Rules


-The tournament is single elimination, which means you lose once and you're done. Winners move on to the next tier.

-Participants will not be explained the rules of Madden or how to use an XBOX 360 controller, hopefully you already know all that.

-Each player will be given a random number for example: Kappa Koin #6.

-Each player will be pitted against another player of a different number for example: Kappa Koin #6 will face An Easy Point #1.

-The Tournament Director will signal to initiate all Tournament play.

-All participants must be on time according to the tournament schedule which means if you are late then you are out.

-In the event of a tie, the tying Participants will play an additional two (2)-minute quarter, until one player scores. The first to score wins the tie.

-If the Participants remain tied after the first two (2)-minute tie-breaking quarter then they will play an additional two (2)-minute quarter (depending on the day’s round of play). This process will be repeated, as necessary, until the tie is broken.

-All games will be played on a XBOX 360

-All games must be played with provided standard XBOX 360 controllers.
