TBA - Standard Small-Medium
START TIME AND BREAKS:
Please check-in to the lobby 5 minutes before your first match. Tournament start times will be strictly enforced to ensure the tournament can finish on time. If you registered for the tournament but are not present to play your match within 5 minutes of the start time, you will receive a DQ for that game. Players can have a 5-minute break in between games, and again must be present at the end of the 5-minute break to start their game or receive a DQ.
It is highly recommended to form a team prior to the start of the league night (you may utilize our discord to find a team: https://discord.gg/fRZA2HU ). If you still do not have a team at the start of the tournament, we will place players into the bracket based on when people arrived, on a first-come-first-serve basis
DC AND COMPUTER ISSUES:
If a crash or DC occurs during a match, the game will be restarted maintaining the score at the time of the crash. If players intentionally cause DCs or computer issues they will be disqualified and possibly banned from all future tournaments.
