When registering for a tournament, team captains must select the minimum number of players required to compete in that tournament, indicated on the tournament sign up module. Team captains will not be able to select more than the maximum number of players indicated on the tournament sign up module. 


Player IDs

For this tournament, players must register their unique game account (found in the profile section) on their EGL profile. All Player IDs on a team’s roster must be 100% valid and accurate. Spelling, spaces and characters must be exact, but do not need to be case sensitive. Inputting your email address instead of your unique username is strictly not allowed and will result in team disqualification.


Roster Lock

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

Substitutes

Teams are not permitted to use a substitute at any point in a match. A substitute is defined as someone who is not listed on the Match Fixture page.


Player Eligibility

Only players listed on the Match Fixture 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. If a team uses an ineligible player in a match they will forfeit the match the ineligible player participated in. Proof must be shown to support any claims of an ineligible player playing in a match.

If the opposing team has an ineligible player present, you must tell the opposing team to replace that player with an eligible player. You must have given the team the required fifteen (15) minutes from match start time to substitute their ineligible player(s). If the ineligible player shows up between maps/rounds, you must give the team the required ten (10) minutes to replace their ineligible player. If the team does not substitute their ineligible player, please report the scores in your teams favour and provide proof of the ineligible player in the game lobby.

Server Issues

In the event of server issues arising, tournaments may be postponed.

Any postponement affects games yet to be played and games in progress.

If both captains wish to, games are permitted to go ahead at the teams’ own risk and any result will stand, regardless of any issues players may or may not have.


Match Delay

Matches must be played in their entirety unless both teams agree to delay the match. The match must still be completed before the start time & date of the next tournament round, as listed under the Tournament Schedule.

Failure to complete a match before the start time & date of the next tournament round may result in one or both teams forfeiting the match and removed from the tournament.

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 (20) minutes will forfeit the whole match.

The team that did not delay must provide video proof showing that this ten (10) or twenty (20) minute delay did occur.


Player Disconnections

If a player disconnects during the initial launch of a map, the map will be restarted from scratch. The initial launch is defined as within the first thirty (30) seconds or before the first kill is made.

If a player disconnects after the game has started, the following rules apply:

Conquest

The match is to be paused and the disconnected player should attempt to reconnect. When the pause reaches the five (5) minute limit, the match must be continued or forfeited.

If both teams disagree over when the player disconnection took place, video proof must be provided that shows the scores and time at which the disconnection took place, as well as the players in the lobby.

It is the hosting team’s responsibility to ensure that the match settings are as outlined above in the Match Settings. 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.

In the instance that the hosting team have the incorrect match settings and you do not leave the game before it is completed, the result of that map will stand.

The hosting team will not forfeit the map if the non hosting team does not leave the match and the map is completed.
