These are the rules for the Go4FIFA (PS4) Europe Cup #18. We make every effort to ensure the rules are complete and up to date but this may not always be the case. You should also check the Info Page and News for additions, exceptions and modifications that may apply. The rules are a guideline and the decisions by admins may differ from them depending on the circumstances. If you have any questions about the rules, please write a support ticket.

1. Cup Rules

As soon as both players are in the same round the match must start. This means that if both players get a default win on the first round (for not having an opponent or any other circumstances), even if the match page states a different match time hour, the match must start.

1.1. No show

Each player has 15 minutes to show up to a match. (Time from Point 1. +15 minutes). Not showing up within 15 minutes results in a default loss. The player that is waiting must open a ticket in order to get a default win.

1.2. Results

Both players are responsible to enter a correct results on the ESL website. Therefore both players have to take a screenshot at the end of the match, where we can see the correct result and they need to upload it after the match to the ESL website. If you have a conflict in the match, please open a protest, so the staff team can check the case and take a decision. The decision can also mean that both players are disqualified, if there is not enough proof for either player to be the clear winner.

1.3. Protests

If a match was incorrectly reported by your opponents, you have 10 minutes to protest the report. ESL reserves the right to decrease this period in case of drastic delays. Match protests must include media evidence clearly showing the results of the match/series. Players are responsible for providing proof of match results in case of disputes.

2. Match Media

All match media (screenshots and videos) must be kept for at least 15 days. In general, you should upload the match media from a match as soon as possible. Faking or manipulating match media is of course forbidden and will result in severe penalties.

2.1. Screenshots

Both participants are responsible that screenshots of the match result are uploaded at the end of the match. The screenshots must contain the nickname of both participants and the match result. Also, we recommend that players take screenshots of disputable situations (such as Disconnects, Game Settings problems, etc.). These screenshots can and will be used as evidence in case of a dispute.

3. Match Settings

All players are subject to follow the following settings. Game settings agreements are not allowed.

3.1. Lobby

Follow these steps to start your match:

  • Add opponent to friends list
  • Go to the online tab

4.5. Disconnection

If there was a disconnect with score 0:0, the game has to be restarted. If a goal was scored, there are two options: a) The players agree to play the remaining time and add additional goals. b) An admin decides about the final score.

4.6. Substitutes

It is not allowed to bring substitutes in the first half of the game unless one of the players got injured or a red card. Ignoring the rule will lead to a disqualification.

5. Penalty Point Catalogue

In general, a player and the team can receive up to 6 penalty points per match, unless a single violation has a higher punishment. A team is only punished once per violation, regardless of how many players. Where a player or team receives penalty points for multiple violations, the penalty points are added together.
