The current ruleset for Tekken 7 ESL matches is:

*Best of Three Games
**One game consists of up to three rounds
*Single Elimination
*Game Timer: 90 seconds (you can't even set this time rule in the game!)
*Stage: Random

Tekken players have been playing in other ruleset than most of the other fighting games for years, and these are:
*Best of Three Games (grand finals BO5)
**One game consists of up to five rounds
*Double Elimination (Single is okay too, but Double is used way more often)
*Game Timer; 60 seconds
*Stage: Radom

This game has been clearly brought up to the ESL platform by someone who has no idea how the game works and how the tournament scene looks like.
Please let's give feedback to the ESL Admins that Tekken 7 players are not treated rightly with current ruleset of games.

    I strongly agree with rudyjack, and I belive that ruleset proposed by him, should be updated to all Tekken cups as fast as possible.

    I agreed about game timer; 60 seconds. 90 seconds in current rules is wrong and it's will be fixed soon.

    Ruleset has been updated to the proposed game settings. As for using double elimination bracket, we strongly believe that with 32 contestants bracket can really take long time for the one day tournament, which is unacceptable. We will think about the Swiss system that is often used in ESL nowadays.

    Thanks for your feedback!
    If you have any additional questions about the rules, feel free to ask in this topic.

    Had a cup game today, where the opponent set 4 rounds in one match. Obviously wrong settings, noticed it myself when the game went to 4th round in-game. Even though I protested the game was not nullified. So basically rules do not matter at all. Put 30 seconds, 1 round or whatever. Thought this was a serious tournament setup

    Anyways, GGs
