However, even when leaving early, you should at least have time enough for a single best of 5 with full 5 games.

2/ Streamer

3. What to do on the day of the event
1/ Be present in the Steam Group Chat of the MRT steam group
- Group Name: DoW II Elite Monthly Rumble tournament!
- Group Link:
- In order to enter group chat, simply visit the link above and hit "Enter chat room" through a logged in Steam account.
- Do not turn off group chat because major announcements will be made there such as which room to enter.

2/ Follow game host's instructions
- He or she will personally contact you through steam. You need to be in group chat in order for this process to work.
- The host for each room will be announced on the group chat.

3/ When you are appointed as a host
- Hosts have to do below things according to organizers' instructions.
1/ Gather players through group chat
- Contact players directly through MRT group chat.
- 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.
2/ Keep rules
- Compared to the tourney, faction war rules are extremely simple. Have a brief look at it on the sign up page.
3/ Inform the organizer about team balance
- Since the organizer cannot be in every single game. He has to rely on host's observation on balance of teams. Cast worthy games cannot be made if teams are too unbalanced.
4/ Save replays for games that lasted longer than 20 minutes
- This is the most important duty because the main purpose of Faction War is to attain replays for casting by Youtube casters.

4. General Info & Rules
1/ Team Balancing
- Teams can be balanced by the organizer or the streamer anytime during the match up. They will listen to what players have to say when changing though.
- The organizer gives priority to 1st Dedicated Player, 2nd Top Player, 3rd Recommended Player by Top or Dedicated Player, 4th Newly Joined Player. The list of Top and Dedicated Players can be found here. >>> viewtopic.php?f=14&t=2759
