Quick Rules

How to play a match
  • Format: Best-of-Three
    • Game modes:
      • Map 1: Turf War
      • Map 2: Splat Zones
      • Map 3: Tower Control
    This means that with every opponent, you play at least Turf War and Splat Zone and for a deciding map (when the score is 1-1) you play Tower Control.

  • Stage Selection: Each stage will be randomized.
    • Played maps during a match will be banned, so you won't randomly get the same map twice

Sub abilities: Off

Please remember to create screenshots as proof of your games!
Teams must have in their PLAYING line-ups at least 3 out of 4 players from The Netherlands, Belgium or Luxembourg
