Players will need to provide a screenshot of the "PS4 connection status" showing their bandwidth capacity to ensure broadcast quality and stability during the tournament. Teams who cannot field the same 3 players as in first three non-broadcasted matches, may be allowed to participate with 2 players. All remaining players must have participated in first three non-broadcasted matches in order to be eligible to participate.
