Rules and Regulations
1. Is their gambling in the SuperCon 2K Series?
No, since playing in video game tournaments is considered a game a skill and not a game of chance it is not considered gambling. Most states in the US have this rule but some states do consider it gambling. We do not operate in states that do consider tournament play gambling.

Seeding of players
Seeding of players for positions in brackets at C3 events will be based on the rankings earned by participating in C3 events i.e. online events and lan events. The top 4 players in a specific game will be seeded. Top 5 will be seeded if an online qualifier is available for that LAN event. In the result that a top seeded player is not present the remaining top seeded players will get bumped up to a higher position for that event. In the event that none of the top seeded players are preset the bracket will be random draw.
