ESL Benelux Championship participation rules

  • Players have to make sure they are logged into the same game account they linked to ESL Play. Logging into a wrong account will result in the player not receiving lobby invites.
  • Players have to make sure that when the tournament starts, they are not in any lobby or party - this also results in the player not receiving lobby invites.
  • Players have to make sure they do not have in-game "do not disturb" mode on - this stops the lobby invites from appearing on the screen.
  • Players should be wary not to click the "IGNORE" button as a response to the lobby invitation.
  • If a team is not in the lobby in 10 minutes after the lobby invitations were sent, that team will receive default loss automatically.
  • If a team finds any problem during their match - It’s mandatory to open a protest ticket on ESL Play or to contact our admin at support channel on discord for assistance, as soon as possible.
