Starting the game

  • As soon as the matchday starts, the first lobby needs to be set up. Once a match has completed the next lobby needs to be immediately set up and all players join within 10 minutes of the end of the previous match. If all players have joined the match lobby the match can start right away. The schedules of the next rounds are subject to the completion of all the games of the previous round.

Tiebreakers

In case of a tie of the score at the end of the match, the following guidelines will be followed in order between the tied players:

  • Games wins in a match
  • Higher placement in a match
  • Higher Wins Rounds/Lost Rounds difference of all games played
  • Higher Win Rounds of all games played

Results

  • Each participant should take end-of-game screenshots of their results in case of any disputes and/or technical difficulties in the lobbies. Failure to provide said screenshots when requested can lead to disciplinary action and/or loss of points. If you have problems or notice any issues, please contact the admins IMMEDIATELY VIA SUPPORT TICKET. You can reach us via Discord for quick questions, for everything else please open a support ticket.

Failure to appear / No Show

  • Each player has 10 minutes to show up to a match. (Match date or end of last match +10 minutes). Showing up after 10 minutes results in a default loss. Please keep in mind, if a player did show up in time, but needs to leave the lobby to sort an issue, it does not count as a no show if they do not come back after that match ends + 10 minutes. Abuse of this exception will lead to a default loss of the match.
