Captains and co-captains are the only players able to interact with the matches' reporting actions. They will find the chat section with the opponent team and the reporting and no-show buttons. They can find the matches through the Dashboard after clicking 'View Details' on the desired one.
Remember that players need to be logged in their EGL accounts to see all the actionable buttons.
3.2 - Reporting results. Disputes and No-Shows
Captains and co-captains should only report a result when the whole match is finished. That means if, for example, a match is a best of 3 (BO3) maps there's no need to report every single map played, only the final result (i.e: 2-1.). An evidence should be attached to the reported result to ensure fast action from the administration team. Please read section 3.4 below for our Evidence Policy.
If an evidence is not attached, the result will be automatically processed after 10 minutes. This is the time that the opponent team has to dispute the result in case the original one is wrong.
Both teams should report their result to ensure the best tournament experience for all participating teams, even in the case of a loss.
3.2.1 - Disputes and No-Shows
If a team reports a score that is wrong, the opponent team will have a 10-minute window to dispute the match by introducing the correct result, ideally with evidece attached.
If after 10 minutes of the start of the round a team is not showing signs of being present, the opponent team may ask for a no-show using the correct button in the Match page. The missing team has 5 minutes to dispute this situation and prove that they are ready to play. If after that time a dispute is not set in place, the missing team will be forfeited from the match.
3.3 - Forfeits
Reasons to ask for a forfeit for the opponent teams include but are not limited to the following situations:
