  • Championship game will be played in a best of 3 format instead of single elimination.
  • No warm-up or practice Games are permitted once the Match’s first Game has begun. If a Match is played before the scheduled time, it will not be considered a warm-up and will count as the official results.
  • Teams will have a 5 minute grace period from the scheduled start time of their match. Teams may delay a match between Games for up to 5 minutes. After 5 minutes if the delaying team does not have the minimum required players, they will forfeit the match.
  • A Team will Forfeit the Match if they are missing more than one player. Teams will be forced to start a Game at the end of a Grace Period of 5 mins.
  • Players who move their Character outside of the normal boundaries of a Map may Forfeit the Game. Moving outside of the normal boundaries of a Map includes but is not limited to part of the Character’s body passing through what should be a non-permeable surface or object, and moving into any area from which your Character registers shots on an opponent who is not able to register shots on your Character.
