Panel 2



  1. The rules used in the Riichi Montréal Open 2020 will be as close as possible to the WRC rules as permitted by Mahjong Soul tournament lobbies. See the #règles-rules channel on the Discord server for the complete list.
  2. The participants are expected to check in on both Saturday and Sunday on the tournament Discord server at the following time :
    12:00 (noon) Eastern Daylight Time;
    09:00 Pacific Time;
    18:00 Central European Time;
    03:00 Australia Eastern Daylight Time (it starts on October 4, on the first day of the tournament!)
    The games are expected to start one hour later.
  3. The tournament structure will be a staggered elimination model. Every two hanchans, there will be a round of eliminations. The ratios are as followed :
    1. After 2 hanchans : To be determined
    2. After 4 hanchans : To be determined
    3. After 6 hanchans (end of day 1) : To be determined
    4. After 8 hanchans : top 8 (semi-finals)
    5. After 10 hanchans : top 4 (finals)
  4. The scores will be halved for the remaining participants after the end of day 1.
  5. The last two (2) games on Sunday October 4 are final games. The scores for the finalists will be reset going into these final games.
  6. We expect good will and fair sportsmanship from all attendees, be they players or staff. Once a game is finished, we ask players to give their final scores in a timely fashion, and respect those that are still playing by joining the general voice chat lobby.

Etiquette rules

  • Respect the other players at every moment during the tournament
  • Swimsuit outfits (Beach Party series) are banned for this tournament. Use of one in a game will result in an automatic DQ. You can use the other outfits.
  • When streaming, use at least a 5 minute delay
  • Outside or tool-assisted help is forbidden. You are only allowed to use a yaku sheet and a points table.
  • When beginning a match, you commit to playing it through completion. Rage-quitting is not allowed and will result in a DQ.
  • You can use emotes, but do not delay the game unnecessarily.

Failure to respect the etiquette rules can lead to sanctions ranging from a warning to a DQ, to a ban from Montréal events.


The Montréal Riichi Open will include these prices, courtesy of Mahjong Soul, Yostar Games and Catfood Studio :
1st : 3 Summon Scrolls + 25,000 Coppers
2nd : 10,000 Coppers
3rd : 7,000 Coppers
4th : 5,000 Coppers


The rankings will be posted online to the riichiout tournament page when they will be available. We will also try to provide updates to the page after each hanchan.

Panel 3


How do I get there?

Here is the link to the Tournoi de Riichi de Montréal Discord server. The tournament will be coordinated on that server. We will use it to synchronize all the activities and make our announcements.

I have a friend / family / other without subscription. Can they be a spectator?

For the first time this year, yes, we can have spectators for the tournament! You will be able to follow this stream in French : https://www.twitch.tv/riichisantana and this one in English : https://www.twitch.tv/tipzntrix.

Furthermore, all players will be allowed to stream their games, provided they have at least a 5 min delay. Stream sniping is forbidden and might result in a DQ.

What to do in case of cheating?

If you have founded suspicions that a player is cheating, please DM a staff member immediately, even if it happens in the middle of a game. Official staff will resolve any conflict.

WARNING! If, for any reason or another, you make any false accusation regarding cheating, official staff owns the right of DQing you from the tournament. You will lose your ranking and cumulated points.

What do I do when a game is done?

After your game is done, you are encouraged to go see the other games on the official streams. If you’re not interested, no worries : just sit back and relax. A ready call will be issued a few minutes before the beginning of the next hanchan.

If my score drops below zero, do I stop playing?

No. A game ends after last oya in the south round loses.

Pourquoi le site est-il unilingue anglophone?

Malheureusement, on n’a pas encore trouvé comment intégrer des traductions dans WordPress. C’est du travail supplémentaire qui a toujours été repoussé de notre côté. Nous avons choisi de donner la priorité au texte anglophone, car nous avons plus de visiteurs unilingues anglophones sur le site que de visiteurs unilingues francophones. Ne vous inquiétez pas, les règles du tournoi seront données dans les deux langues (français/anglais) sur le serveur Discord et sur demande durant le tournoi.
