KOFXV has many game modes that bring variety and fun, one of them is the DRAFT mode. This tournament uses that format. The first player will choose one character, the second player then chooses two. Then the first player chooses their next character and then the second player picks their last character, then player one can pick their last. It makes for fun viewing as the players try to counter pick each other, as only one player can take the strongest character, yes, that’s right, there are no mirrors, each character can only be picked ONCE. There can only be one Krohnen per match!!!
Match Format is FT2. Brackets will be shuffled live on stream, then simply the player at the top of each bracket will takes first place. We will then coin toss to see if 1p will change position. Matches will be fixed FT2. RULE MAY CHANGE depending on time limits. We aim to have a 4 hour tournament.
Draft mode: game seems more balanced now and coin flipping takes ages. But ft2 locks characters in. Position lock means 1p always gets first pick. What should we do? #kofxv

Winners stages are also FT2 but may be extended to FT3 if time allows.
This is an invitational tournament over the EMEA region.
16 PLAYERS (in no particular order)
The Draft 01 Champion, ICFC leader, even featured in Famitsu,
and now Esports manager, Frezzer returns!
Can he defend his title?
2. Kyoko Dash
Player from the KOF13 era, very active now, competing weekly!
Multiple champion: Crossover, Brussels Challenge
and 5th at SNK Regionals! Watch out for his Kyo!
Another veteran of the scene, we played KOF13 till the early hours!
He skipped XIV entirely, now he’s active for KOF15!
Hailing from the Czech Republic,
he’s been playing online tournaments on a weekly basis and won one of the Orochi tournaments recently!
Otherwise, regularly placing top 8 in online tournaments, will be one to watch!
Who? Should need no introduction really!
The UK Maxima specialist and regular streamer, Boroshin is
usually rocking with Gato and Yamazaki but you never know if there’s a pocket counter pick!
5th place at SNK Regional Finals!
SaltyEU & Eurobeatdown champion, he might drop a new album, but he won’t drop a combo!
The Kukri specialist, should be good fun
to see what happens if someone steals
the Morrocan prince! Yes, he made that
costume himself and even made Antonov’s belt!
This player has been giving everyone many
headaches with a solid, solid Clark, but then dropped
all that mid tier nonsense and went straight in
with Yashiro, Gato and Rock. He’s not playing!
Top 3 Tournament Finalist at Stunfest and others!
Leona, Luong and now Angel specialist,
but maybe has some other tricks up his sleeve!!
Another veteran of the FGC,
3rd place at SNK Regionals!
Recently top 8 2CBU finalist,
WivGar continues to improve.
Actually starting FGs with Drabon ball fighterZ,
KOFXV is their first KOF title,
only recently taking it seriously.
It is always interesting to watch the progress of new blood in the scene!
Out of nowhere went straight to
2nd place at SNK Regional Finals!
Very very strong with K’ and Chizuru
but will he keep Krohnen?
ICFC Champion. 2BCU Champion.
3rd at Stunfest 2022
7th place at SNK Regionals
The long distance connection will
probably be his only obstacle!
14. ROV| Monoborracho
The streamer is getting stronger and stronger!
Originally a Tekken player, he started playing KOF13 during the pandemic, and started to compete in KOFXV.
This year he has reached Top 4 and 5 at 2BCU online tournaments and top 8 in Claim the Crown!
The interest in the game inspired him to launch the KOF XV Spanish league to grow the community and improve the level of the players, so a huge thanks to him!
He would also like you to know his favourite character is Leona!
15. Megaman Azeddine
A champion of KOF2002UM , KOFXV & 98FE!
Watch out for the superfast reflexes
Is it “crazy two forty seven” or “twenty four seven”
or “two hundred four seven”, ah that’s the question.
Armed with multiple fighters and dedication,
his only weakness will be teleporting rollback!
- Nemo Smash (busy)
- Aka Ash, Victor, Ky Dragon are ps4 only
