    After the match has finished, close your game and enter the result by clicking on “Match setup” at the Matchsheet. On PC you have to upload your Moss files as well, under "Upload match media"!

How to request R6 Credit prizes
You don't have to do anything! The prizes will be sent via email, based on the players you used in your lineup during the tournament.

If you do not submit a lineup, you will not receive credits.
How to pick/ban maps
For tournaments and ladders, the system will randomly select a team to ban first. Teams alternate banning maps until there is 1 map remaining. The logic will be the same for all "best of" series. The chronological order in which the maps will be played is also determined by vote.
