Player Rules

- All players must be on time for their respective scheduled matches.

- Players will be receiving a message from a Hypefestation Referee. You will have 15 minutes to join the lobby or risk being disqualified at the Referees discretion. 

- Game Chat Only / Players cannot be in an Xbox live Party during their match.

- Smoke Grenades are not allowed.

- Melee's are allowed.

- The use/attempt of any map/game glitches will result in immediate disqualification.

-  You will be assigned a neutral host. You may request a lag test from your Referee at any time before the first round starts. If both players decide to not ask for a Lag test, they accept the connection, and must play through the match. If a player leaves in the middle of a match, the score count will NOT reset.

- A single player can request a change of host once. We will work to provide a different neutral host. The maximum number of host tests per match is therefor three. 

- If you run out of ammo, you are not safe from the other player killing you. 

- If you pull out another gun on accident, or pick up a gun on the map, you are not safe from the other player killing you.

- If you fire any other kind of weapon, you will be disqualified.

- If your match is NOT being streamed: Players can immediately proceed to Midbox as soon as a round starts. The referee will spectate from a safe distance away. If the player on the referees team loses the round, the player on the other team must kill the immobile referee to win the round. 

- If your match IS being streamed OR has a REF and a Neutral Host in the lobby: Players must kill extra people in the game (Referees, Commentators, Streamers). A player is not allowed to leave spawn until 15 seconds after the match starts. If a player deliberately leaves spawn before the 15 seconds have elapsed, that player may lose the round at the referees discretion. At that moment, the referee or streamer will leave the match to signal that the rule has been broken.
