Player Eligibility 
Only players listed on the Participants page are eligible to play in tournament matches. It is both team's responsibility to verify the eligibility of all players playing in the match prior to starting a match. By allowing the match to start, both teams agree that the players in the lobby are going to play the match and are allowed to participate in the whole match series, even if some of the players in the lobby are not listed on the participant page.

If the opposing team has an ineligible player present, you must tell the opposing team to replace that player with an eligible player. An eligible player has a maximum of ten (10) minutes to be changed. If the team does not substitute their ineligible player, do not start the match or allow the match to be started and contact a game admin immediately.

Pickups 
Teams are not permitted to use a pickup at any point in a match. A pickup is defined as someone who is not listed on the participant page.

Game IDs 
All Game IDs on a team’s roster must be valid. Spelling, spaces and characters must be exact, but do not need to be case sensitive.

User game ID's are stored when tournament brackets are generated, meaning that any changes made to a user's game ID after a tournament has started will not be reflected for that specific tournament.

Match Delay


Matches must be played in their entirety unless a game admin tells them otherwise.

Teams may not delay the match for more than ten (10) minutes between each map. If a team delays the start for longer than ten (10) minutes between maps, they will forfeit that map.

Teams that delay a match for more than twenty (15) minutes will forfeit the whole match.

The team that did not delay must provide video proof showing that this ten (10) or twenty (15) minute delay did occur.

Before a forfeit is given in all cases an admin must be contacted in order to give the final decision.

It is the hosting team’s responsibility to ensure that the match settings are as outlined above. If you notice that the host has the incorrect match settings, please record video proof of what is wrong, ensuring that the scores, time, incorrect rules and the players in the lobby are clearly visible and then immediately leave the game.

In the instance that the hosting team have the correct match settings and you leave the game before it is completed, the team that did not leave will receive the win for that map.

Once a match has started both teams agree to the selected match settings.

Pause

If the problem occurs in the first round of either the first or second half, the half time in question will be replayed. If the problem occurs in the first round of the overtimes, the overtime in question will be replayed. If the problem occurs in any other round, the players need to pause that round and wait until the problem is solved or until the tournament officials tell them to continue the game. If multiple users are dropped or the server crashes, the team captains will try to settle upon a way to carry on with the match. If they are not able to do so, the tournament officials will decide for them and the teams must respect their decision.

In order to un-pause the match, only the players from the team that requested the pause may unpause the game. If the opposite team un-pauses the game without approval, the team in question will receive a warning.

A team can have a maximum of 2 pauses per map; each pause can last up to 5 minutes. A team is only allowed to pause the match during the freeze time.
Note : If a pause is requested during a round, the pause will have effect in the freeze time of the round after;

immediately.The team must respect admin decision.
