Draft Rules

  • Draft Options: Tournament will be using the draft mode feature. Team will only have 5 members, subs can be used but may only play for one team throughout the tournament.
  • Draft Order: The team listed as the home team will have the
    choice to select their side as blue (first pick) or purple (second pick).
    The home team will be chosen with a coin toss before a match starts.  In a multiple game
    series, the loser of a game will receive first pick for the next game.

    Draft mode proceeds in a snake draft format as follows:
    Blue Team = A; Purple Team = B
    Bans: ABABAB

Stoppage of Play

  • A player, who experiences technical issues, may call for a game Pause. The player must be experiencing a hardware malfunction (e.g. monitor, peripheral, etc), or a physical disruption (e.g. fan interference, table or chair breakage). The player must declare the issue in public chat or to a tournament administrator and then intentionally disconnect. 
  • If an unintentional disconnection occurs  –OR– a player’s client crashes or fails to load after champion selection,
    then the match must be paused. 


  • If a player intentionally disconnects without specifying a reason, then the game will continue as normal.
  • If a server crash occurs, then the tournament director or head referee will decide either between (a) restarting the game or (b) awarding the game to one of the teams. As a guideline, a game victory will only be awarded in a situation where one team was on the verge of certain defeat (e.g. A nexus was about about to be destroyed).
  • Pausing the game unintentionally is not permitted.
    If done the game must be resumed
    immediately and if a team does it more than once he can face disqualification form the tournament.

Unfair play

The following actions will be considered unfair play:

  • The use of any cheat program and/or map hack program.
  • An intentional disconnection without a proper and explicitly stated reason.
  • The use of any settings exceeding the standard and permitted settings.
  • Intentionally allowing an opponent to win a game.
  • Unsportsmanlike or disruptive behavior such as inappropriate and/or unprofessional actions directed towards another player or tournament official.
  • The use of a game bug that is determined by the board of referees as being unfair.
  • The use of an ineligible player (aka “ringing”) upon discovery of any player committing any violations regarded as unfair play, the offending player, at the sole discretion of the tournament director or a group of referees, may receive a warning, a forfeit loss, disqualified from the tournament. During the course of the event, the tournament director or group of referees may determine other actions to embody unfair play.

Should a team use someone to seek information regarding the opposing team while playing, that team can be disqualified immediately. It is up to the match admins to decide and take action when such rule is breached.
