Several Questions were asked in regards to the tournament. So Mr. Brandon Alexander comes with his answers for those questions. One of the questions was if Shadow Jago can be used in the tournament and the have considered this and the KI team is happy to announce that using of Shadow Jago is legal in the tournament as all the people had fair amount of time in using this character
The next important thing that people were concerned was if they will have access to combo assist feature in the tournament, unfortunately, this feature is still in beta access and it is still in work in progress. Though this feature will not be allowed in this tournament, the KI team said that this will feature will be allowed in all tournaments down the line once the feature is out of beta version.
The hyped word that all have been looking out for is to see the playable preview of Killer Instinct Season 3 characters. For this, the people who are coming to the tournament will be feasted with the play preview at the game floor after the tournament. However, for the people who will not make it to the tournament, it is not a constraint as the play preview will be shown at PAX South during the same weekend as Season 3 is planned to release there as the goal is to reach more places with more playing hands.
