These are the rules for the ESL SC2 Open Team League Autumn 2018. 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. Clanwar All-Kill Rules
All-Kill matches are Best of 7 maps, with each team choosing a starting player. The team ranked higher in the ladder tells their first player first.
The first map is agreed on via the challenge, or both teams agree on random so the map is randomly picked by the website. The next map is picked by the losing side. The same map cannot be played twice.
The winner of a map stays on to the next map, the loser is replaced with a new player that has not played before. The first team to win 4 maps, wins the match.
When entering results, enter the overall map wins.
Unless otherwise specified, the map veto rules are as follows
- The highest seeded contestant decides who goes first
- If there is no highest seeded contestant, a coin flip determines who decides to go first
- BO1: Contestants take it in turn removing maps from the pool until one map remains
- Contestants take it in turns removing maps until the number of maps needed remain
- Contestants take it in turns picking maps from the maps remaining
- Maps are played in the order they were picked, the remaining map is played last, if needed
3. Match media
All match media (screenshots, demos, etc) must be kept for at least 14 days. In general, you should upload the match media from a match to the match page as soon as possible. Faking or manipulating match media is of course forbidden and will result in severe penalties. Match media should be named clearly based on what it is. It is not possible to file a protest or write a support ticket to complain about bad match media naming. However, if an admin is hindered in their work because of bad match media names then it can be punished for.
Both players are responsible for uploading the replay of the match to the match page as soon as possible after the match. In the absence of a replay, the administration may refuse to consider the claim regarding the outcome of this game.
3.2. Streams and observers
Only streamers can participate in the match (120 second delay or more is required). Casters and co-casters voice can be heard on broadcast, except for first person streams.
Observers is allowed only in case of mutual non-objection.
All disagreements about the presence of observers and streamers in the game must be resolved before it starts. After the game is over, claims about the presence of observers in it can be rejected.

But in this situation, a match can be played by mutual agreement of the teams, no later than within three days from the date approved in the schedule.
5. Expectations and disconnects
The waiting period for next game start is 10 minutes. If the team is not ready to provide a player after this time, a technical defeat will be counted.
In case of disconnection of the game the game can be resumed from replay. If the disconnected player is not ready to continue game within 10 minutes, his team take techlose at this set.
The player’s waiting time can be increased by mutual agreement of the teams, but not more than 30 minutes.
