- All players should be on time for their respective scheduled matches. Their will be a 15 min rule to join the lobby from invite, or risk being DISQUALIFIED from the tournament.

- No match can occur without there being a referee present.

- Hosting matches will work as follows:
  • - In a best of 5 series, the higher seeded team chooses one map to host or to defer host, then the lower seeded team chooses two maps to host or defer, and lastly the higher seeded team gets to host or defer host on the final two maps.

Seven Round Rule:

Does not apply for semi-final and final matches.

  • Each game has a limit of seven rounds, this includes stalemates. At the end of the seventh round, the team with the most rounds in their favor wins. If it’s a tie, they keep playing until one team scores.

Continuation Rule:

Continuation will only occur during the Championship finals if the Winners Bracket team has already played the losers bracket team. The series will continue from where the last series finished off. 

For Example: If Team A beats Team B in Winners Round 3 with a score of 3-0 and these teams meet again in Championship finals, where Team A is coming from winners bracket and Team B is coming from losers bracket, then the series would start with Team A being up 3-0 and will only need to win 3 maps to win the tournament whereas Team B will need 6 maps to win. THE CONTINUATION RULE WILL OCCUR IN NO OTHER SITUATION!

- Each team has the choice to opt for a LAG TEST prior to map start, in which the hosting team will host a King of the Hill on Checkout for test.
- The MATCH REFEREE will determine if the host connection is playable, the referee has the final and only say.
- If the referee determines the host unplayable, then the host team will have to choose a new host connection.
