Race Details

Each race will consist of two players, each running the same race seed.

There will be no double races.

The seeds for each race will be generated by the tournament organizers and provided to the entrants five minutes in advance.

Seed IDs will be obfuscated in the ROM and spoiler logs will not be provided until after both players have finished.

All matches of the tournament will be broadcast to twitch.tv/SpeedGaming, twitch.tv/speedrunslive or twitch.tv/speedgaming2.

Players and commentators should join the Discord server.
