Punctuality
Players have up to 10 minutes to show up for a match before forfeiting the first game. Additional games will be forfeited every additional five minutes if the player does not show up. In the event of a no-show or disconnect, refer to the rules and contact an admin via support ticket immediately.

Reporting Scores
To report your score enter a number (0,1,2) to specify how many games you won and lost in the web-site or ESL Play App. Both players are expected to report the score.

If there are any inconsistencies in the reported scores, contact us via a support ticket. In the event of a dispute, be prepared to provide screenshots or video evidence from the match. Uploading clips to twitch.tv or youtube.com is the best way to provide video evidence.
