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 re-join the tournament.


Player Eligibility

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.

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.
