SERVER INFO

All tournament information is disseminated via official emails from Curse. Emails will be sent to one player from each squad, it is that player’s responsibility to share access information with their teammates.

Anyone caught sharing server information with uninvolved individuals will be kicked and banned from future events, in addition to having their username reported to the appropriate community officials for further punitive action.

SERVER CRASH POLICY

In the event of a server remake due to lag or other reasons, all participants will receive an email from tournament staff with the next steps. We ask that participants please understand that while this process may in place, our limited access to tools in the game UI limits our response to such a situation.

In the event of a server crash (aka the observer goes down) we will remake the custom match and begin again. Tournament officials are not responsible in the event of a personal crash during play. If 10+ individuals experience a personal crash during the Final phase, tournament administrators can institute a max of one remake.

Substitutions must be made from your pre-designated “sub roster”. You are not allowed more than two (2) substitutes maximum.

TEAM PUNCUALITY

All teams are expected to be available while they have matches remaining in the day within 5-10 minutes of administrative notice. Not being available within this time period may be grounds for punitive action, including: forfeiture of a match, or disqualification at the admin’s discretion. Additionally, the 5-10 minute policy also applies in between maps within a series as well.

ADMIN CLAUSE

While the Admin will commit to every best possible effort to follow the above rules, the Admin reserves the right to override any rule in the ruleset based on exceptional or unforeseen circumstances.
