In exchange for the rule book, he has demanded 1m of my own money to the chat contest.

There is a twist, however!

The winner of the chat contest will only receive the extra 1m if they are an active participant in T25!

To be considered active, you must meet the following criteria:

If you win on the first day of the tournament, you must have fought at least 400 battles.

If you win on the second day of the tournament, you must have fought at least 800 battles.

If you win on the third day of the tournament, you must have fought at least 1200 battles.

If you win on the fourth day of the tournament, you must have fought at least 1600 battles.

If you win on the fifth day of the tournament, you must have fought at least 2100 battles.

And if you win on the sixth or seventh day of the tournament, you must have fought at least 3000 battles.

Now to the T25 rules.

SNK is still holding this page as collateral, so the rules will be

**secret!**

The only hints you will get are:

There is a hardcap BA limit of 10,000. However there is also a softcap BA limit, for every 250 fights over the softcap you will lose one point.

Half of the attributes (HP/STR/DX/EO/ED/Skills) are penalties, and half are bonuses. Penalties are worth -1 points, and bonuses are worth +2 points.

If you have one of the top three in an attribute, you will receive either X5 to that attributes points for first place, X3 for second, and X2 for third. This goes for penalties as well!

To have your points be tallied, you must be in the top 24 scores for the tournament.

In addition, there are two

**special**strategies! They are worth an extra 10 points to your score if your character has the strategy at the end of the tournament! These two strategies are on characters you can currently view. More hints will be given on February 5th!

**February 5th!**

This is a special day of the tournament! The hints will be given out for the special two strategies, and every tournament player will get one guess in this thread as to why the hints are being given out on that day. Whoever guesses right will get 500k!

The winner will be the player with the most points.

Prizes:

1st) A Pair of Elven Boots, +19.

2nd) 1 million.

In addition, everyone who has at least 75% of the top MPR will receive a 100k consolation prize.

The tournament will begin February 1st at noon, and last until February 9th at noon.
