Rosters


Minimum & Maximum Players

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.

For this tournament you must play with 3 people for the tournament to work, you cannot play solo or as a duo. If you are caught or attempt to do so you will be disqualified from the tournament.


Player IDs

For this tournament, players must register their Origin ID to their EGL Game & Social Accounts 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.

If your username is found to be incorrect or you have input an email address instead of your Origin ID then your team will be disqualified as this is strictly NOT allowed.


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.

Roster Lock

Player IDs are stored when you enter a tournament, meaning that any changes made to a player's ID after they sign up for a tournament will not be updated on the roster. To avoid this change your username before signing up for a tournament or leave the tournament, change your game ID so that it is correct and then rejoin the tournament.


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 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.

Best of 1

All matches are Best of 1 and are decided after one game.


Game Session Setup

- Teams consist of 3 players, each team should swap 1 player so that each team has 2 of its own members and 1 of their opponents.

- The captain of the hosting team will host a public game session. The hosting player will then invite their teammate and one of the opponents from the opposing team to the game session and start matchmaking.

- The two games will be played at the same time. Once the match has concluded and the squad has either won the game or they have all been eliminated, each team should get photographic evidence of the final squad scoreboard, example:

- Each members kills will then be combined as a team to determine the winner of the map, for example:

Red Team

Player One
Player Two
Player Three

Blue Team

Player Four
Player Five
Player Six

Match A - Players Kills

Player One = 2 Kills
Player Two = 1 Kills
Player Four = 3 Kills

Match B - Players Kills

Player Five = 3 Kills
Player Six = 4 Kills
Player Three = 3 Kills

Combined Kill-count

Red Team = 6 Kills Total
Blue Team = 10 Kills Total
Winning Team = Blue Team


How To Win

The team with the most kills at the end of the game session will be awarded the win. If there is a tie in kills, the team with the most amount of combined damage will win.

Matches


Server Issues

In the event of server issues arising, tournaments may be postponed or cancelled depending on the severity of the issue.

If the tournament is cancelled it will be announced on the EGL_Online twitter page and Discord channel. The tournament title will also be adjusted to reflect this outcome.


Incorrect Match Settings

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/or the players in the lobby are clearly visible (depending on the accusation) and then immediately report this to the admin.

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 match.


Forfeits

In order for a team to forfeit, the opposing team must leave the match as soon as they have gathered evidence of the opposing team violating the tournament rules.

Teams will forfeit a round for the following reasons:

  • Leaving a match prior to it's completion and then failing to provide valid proof of the accusation against the opposing team.
  • Hosting a match with the incorrect Match Settings shown above.
  • Delaying a match by more than fifteen (15) minutes since receiving the match fixtures for that round.

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 the first 90 seconds of a game. (Proof of survival time must be given and/or video footage of the first 90 seconds of the game).

If a player disconnects after 90 seconds, the team with disconnection issues can continue playing with one player or forfeit the match.


Match Delay

Matches must be played in their entirety unless both teams agree to delay the match. Maximum permitted time to delay a match is fifteen (15) minutes.

Failure to complete a match or report the scores within one (1) hour of receiving the match fixtures will result in disqualification for both teams due to inactivity.

Teams may not delay the match for more than fifteen (15) minutes between each round. If a team delays the start for longer than fifteen (15) minutes, the other team should report the scores in their favour and provide proof of the delay occurring.

The team that did not delay must provide video proof showing that this fifteen (15) minute delay did occur.

Hosting


Hosting

As this is a Battle Royale game played on dedicated servers, we don't formally distinguish between hosts for this tournament. Both teams should take the initiative to invite and/or message the other team about the game setup. Failure to do so can result in a forfeit. The host however must reside within the EU.

Reporting


Match Result

Both teams are responsible for reporting the result of a match. This can be done by clicking on the match fixture link found on the Match Fixture page.

Tournament brackets will be updated automatically once both teams have reported the match.

In the instance that only one team reports the match result, the result will automatically be confirmed after ten (10) minutes. Please do not contact support in this time as you will cancel the timer.

Disputed Result

In the instance that both teams report conflicting results, the match will be placed into dispute and will be handled by a member of staff.

Evidence

In the event of a dispute, the team that has disputed will be asked to provide proof of their accusation. Please see the Evidence Policy section below to find out what evidence is required.

If the disputing team is unable to provide valid evidence for the reason that they disputed, then their team will be removed from the tournament and will also receive a suspension due to disputing without valid reason/proof.

No Shows


No Shows

A team has fifteen (15) minutes to show up and be ready to start the match. Failure to do so will result in a forfeit.

Failure to do will result in the no-show claim being voided and both teams being made to play the round.
