  • In official Road To Hype tournaments, the winner and runner-up will receive free tournament entry to the corresponding title tournament at Hypespotting 6. For example, if you win a Road To Hype Street Fighter V tournament, then you will receive free entry to the Street Fighter tournament at Hypespotting 6.
  • Players who have won free tournament entry at a Road To Hype event will receive a code to use on the Hypespotting website. If you have already paid for your tournament entry, then you will be refunded that tournament entry cost.
  • In the event that a player(s) has already won tournament entry at an earlier Road To Hype event, then the free tournament entry will ‘drop down’ to the next highest finishing player(s)
  • Please be aware that this is tournament entry, not event entry. Players will still need to purchase event entry to take part in Hypespotting.
