1. Common Instructions
  • Save games that lasted more than 25 minutes and send it to the organizer's email address at the end of the tournament. >>>
2. Referee/Streamer
  • Keep on checking steam messages from the organizer.
- Streamers are assigned referee duty when there are not enough referees around.
- Streamers can also off their stream and act as referee only if they see fit.

Phase 1 - Gathering People
  • Put up 1. Participant List, 2. Brackets Page on a separate screen and refresh them often. They can be found on the sign up page. Sign up pages are 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 icon. Clicking on in gives you various options and one of the 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.

Phase 2 - Rule Enforcing
  • Make sure participants follow rules regarding Map Pool, Map Picking, Hero Picking procedures.
Map Picking First -> Hero Picking Second

Map Picking
1st Game - Fixed(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, leaves or does not arrive on time, report to the organizer of the tournament immediately.
  • Below rules do not apply if everyone crash together including the referee. In this case, the crashed match is considered as if it did not happen. For example, if the first match of a best of 3 crashed in this fashion, it is as same as it never happened. The match has to start again as match 1 starting from map picking procedure without any penalty given to anyone.
  • If someone disconnects or drops during the game, the referee must remind him or her that doing that twice during the entire tournament will result in disqualification. The referee must tell them to turn off their game off and on after every match to prevent crashes.
  • In case of disconnection, if the match was within 5 minutes, there is going to be a rematch using the same map and same hero settings on both teams.
  • 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.
  • 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 each team member of a team disconnects once within a round, the entire team is disqualified.
  • For whatever reason if a team member disconnects twice, it will result in that player being ejected out of the tournament.
  • In tournament finals, Tournament Final Specific Rules takes priority.
  • Kick anyone else besides signed up referees, streamers, players. Players who lost their game cannot be in your hosted room unless they asked the organizer for the permission first.
  • Only signed up players are allowed to watch under 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.
- Streamers can 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.

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.
- There is only Qualifiers Round in Rusty & New Bracket. The rest of the rounds are duds.
- Winning teams of the Qualifiers Round will secure a spot each in 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 replacement player can be brought from both inside and outside of reserve pool.
- 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!"
