Match Progress
When the cup begins check “My Matches” and contact your opponent via Xbox Live to start the match. The higher seed will host the first map. Host will alternate each game. If both teams have completed their previous round, please start the game immediately. The time on the match page is irrelevant.

Team Colors
The higher seeded team will always be Red. The lower seeded team will always be Blue.

Before a game begins, verify that all of the settings are correct. Please check all game mode settings under rules.

Map Rotation
The maps and gametypes for each round can be found here.

Score Disputes
Both teams should report match scores at the end of each series. If there are any inconsistencies in the reported scores, please contact us via support with valid proof. Team captains are responsible for taking pictures of the post-game summaries or providing video evidence for proper proof. Uploading clips to xboxclips.com is the best way to provide video evidence.
