1. Common Instructions/Check List
Common Instructions
  • Keep on checking steam messages from the organizer thorughout the tournament.
  • Save replay of games that lasted longer than 25 minutes and send it to the organizer's email address at the end of the tournament. >>>
Check List
1) Did you add the organizer on steam? >>>
2) Do you have the latest patch for Elite Mod?
3) Do you have general knowledge about standard settings for multiplayer matches?
4) Are you able to navigate forums and find necessary links in case given links are lost?
5) Are you familiar with tournament related terms?

2. Referee/Streamer
- Sentences highlighted in blue only apply to streamers. All other instructions apply to both referees and streamers.
- Streamers are assigned referee duty when there are not enough referees around.
- Streamers can turn off their stream and act as referee only if they see fit.

Phase 1 - Gathering People
  • Put up 1. Brackets Page, 2. Participant List on a separate screen and refresh them often. They can be found in the sign up page. Sign up pages are located at forum's tournament section. >>> viewforum.php?f=14
  • According to the organizer's instructions such as host team A vs Team B, host rooms.
  • After hosting the room, go to Participant List in order to figure out who is in which team.
  • What I mean by directly contacting players is to actually directly send steam messages to them and not just announce their IDs in the group chat.
  • In the group chat's right side panel, there is a list of players inside the group chat. Right next to their steam IDs, there is a small downward pointing arrow icon. Clicking on in gives you various options and one of options is to send direct message to them. This can be done even if they are not your steam friend.
- Report to the organizer immediately when players are missing from your room for any reason.

Phase 2 - Rule Enforcing
  • Report match result to the organizer after each match.
  • Map Picking First -> Hero Picking Second
Map Picking
1st Game - Predetermined by the organizer for each Round(Can be found on brackets)
2nd Game - The losing team's choice
3rd Game - The losing team's choice
- No map can be played more than once within a Round.
- Maps that are variants of other maps, such as Calderis Refinery / Valderus Refinery, will count as one map.
- Only maps in the Map Pool may be played to be considered a valid tournament match.(The Map Pool can be found on sign up pages)

Hero Picking
1st Game - Top of the box team first(Have a look at brackets for boxes)
2nd Game - Bottom of the box team first
3rd Game - Top of the box team first
- Players must choose from 3 pre-picked choices.(Have a look at the Participant List for details)
- Players who chose random can only play random throughout the entire tournament.
- Players must announce their hero picks in the match chat room after finalizing their hero pick.
- Players picking random must announce their race via Shift + Enter once the game starts.

Phase 3 - Dealing with Disconnections and Observers/Streamers
- If someone disconnects during the game, report to the organizer of the tournament immediately.
- The meaning of the term disconnection used here includes but not limited to any activities that result in leaving the game while the match is in progress such as sound bug, rage quitting and force quitting.
- Below rules do not apply if everyone crash together including the referee or if someone crash during the loading screen. In these cases, the crashed match is reset without penalties given to anyone. The referee should start the procedure again starting from the map picking procedure.

5 Minutes Rule
  • In case of disconnection, if the match was within 5 minutes(includes length being exact 5 minutes), there is going to be a rematch using the same map and same hero settings on both teams.
  • If any of the players picked random, applicable players must pick the hero the random gave them during the crashed match for the rematch.
  • If the match was beyond 5 minutes, a referee or the tournament organizer will determine the winner using whatever information is available. That decision will be final and without discussion so the tournament can go on as smoothly as possible. Failure to comply will result in tournament ejection of the offending party.
Disconnection Penalties & Solution
  • For whatever reason if a team member disconnects twice, it will result in that player being ejected out of the tournament.
  • If each team member of a team disconnects once within a round, the entire team is disqualified.
  • If someone disconnects during the game, the referee must inform applicable players about above penalties. At the same time, the referee must inform applicable players about the solution. The solution is to turn the game off and on after every match. This is a proven method which prevents crashes of any sort.
- In tournament finals, Tournament Final Specific Rules takes priority.

  • Kick anyone else besides signed up referees and streamers.
  • Beside referees and streamers, only signed up players are allowed to watch under the organizer's permission. Any other observers are banned.
  • Players have the right to kick all observers and streamers. Even if only one player requests it, the referee must kick all observers and streamers from the room.
- Streamers can turn off their stream and act as referee only if this happens in their room or contact the organizer to bring in other referee to replace them and move on to other rooms to stream.
- Observing slot purge right cannot be exercised in the finals.

3. Rusty & New Bracket Rules
- There will be a separate bracket for rusty & new players.
- All the rules of the main tournament applies the same way.
- Rusty & New Bracket consist of Qualifiers Round 1 & 2. The final is a dud.
- Two winning teams of the Qualifiers Round 2 get transferred to the main bracket.

4. Tournament Final Specific Rules
  • All participants including referees who host the final room must turn the game off and on after each match in order to prevent disconnection issues.
  • When a disconnection happens, the team with disconnecting player auto loses that match.
  • If a player leaves during finals for any reason, one of two things can happen.
1) Bring a replacement player
- This can only be done only when all members of both teams agree on accepting the chosen replacement player. The decision must be unanimous in order to prevent disputes. If one of the involved players refuses, the second option applies.
- The player who lost his or her mate has the first say on whom to pick but if he or she for some reason cannot bring or choose a reserve, the organizer can bring one for the team.
- If the player who lost his or her mate and the organizer is for some reason unable to bring in reserve, bystanders like streamers, referees, observers can bring one but remember that the decision must be unanimous in order to prevent disputes. If one of the involved players refuses, the second option has to be applied.
- Prize is not granted to anyone if there is a replacement during the finals.

2) Freeze the score and stop the tournament
- The score freezes at that moment and replacement players are not allowed. The match will be decided by whatever the score was at that point. If the score is a draw, then there will be no champion team for that tournament and thus prizes will not be granted.
- The reasons for leaving includes but not limited to Disconnections, Rage quitting and not returning to the next game lobby, Turning off steam, Getting ejected from the tournament by disconnections rule.
"From the United Kingdom!"
"I'm looking for heaven!"
"I'm going to California!"
