With only five players left in the Cross Assault competition, Capcom-Unity fills us in on how they are going to choose the final four. The remaining five contestants will have to run a four stage gauntlet, with each stage either sending a contestant to elimination or securing them a place in the final four. Here’s how it’s all going to go down:
The Road to Evo Gauntlet
Stage 1: Round Robin Tournament
The remaining five players will compete in a round robin tournament. The player that scores the worst in this tournament will automatically be sent to tonight’s Elimination Match.
Stage 2: Pair Play
The remaining four players will be separated into two teams and compete using Pair Play mode. The two teams will compete in a 3 out of 5 set. The two players on the winning team will then face off against each other in a standard 3 out of 5 set. The winner of this set will be confirmed as one of the final four, and will head to Final Round to compete for the $25,000 grand prize.
Stage 3: Combo Consistency
The remaining three players will be assigned combos, and will have a single chance to execute them. Each time a player drops a combo when their opponents hit it, they will be eliminated from this challenge. The last player standing will be confirmed as one of the final four, and will head to Final Round to compete for the $25,000 grand prize.
Final Boss: The Coach’s Gauntlet
The remaining two players will face off against the opposing team’s coach for 30 minutes straight. For each round won, the player will be given 1 point. For each match won, the player will be given 3 points. The player with the higher score at the end of the 30 minute timeframe will be confirmed as one of the final four, and will head to Final Round to compete for the $25,000 grand prize. The player with the lower score at the end of the 30 minute timeframe will be sent to the Elimination Match.
The remaining final four contestants will each receive seeding points for the Street Fighter X Tekken tournament at EVO 2012 and will go on to compete for the grand prize at Final Round. This is it. The final stretch. Who will survive to win $25,000 dollars?
