  • Alternates may only be swapped between maps or matches.
  • Team rosters may be edited up until the tournament start time. Edits after the tournament has started will not reflect on the tournament roster.
  • PC’s will be provided for the tournament (on October 20th) along with peripherals (controller/keyboard/mouse/headset).  Players may bring their own keyboard/mouse if they wish, but must use headset provided by GZG.

  • Breaking any rule and any form of cheating, glitching, abusing in-game mechanics, or unsportsmanlike behavior may result in a Forfeit of a Game, Match, or Ban from GZG events. Cheating, glitching, and abusing in-game mechanics accusations must be verified by a GZG Tournament Official. Punishable unsportsmanlike behavior includes, but is not limited to, excessive use of foul or degrading language. For all cheating claims, the burden of proof is on the accuser unless it is witnessed by a GZG staff member.
