In a Bo3, each team picks 1 map and proceeds to ban until one is remaining, which will then serve as the tiebreaker map. The same process applies to a Bo5 match, except that teams take turns to pick 2 maps at the start.
Players must be on the PlayStation Network (PSN) servers prior to adding each other as friends and during the competition.
The check in period starts 25 minutes before the match’s start time and ends 10 minutes before. Players must check in within the allocated time or they will be disqualified from the competition.
Both teams captains must attempt adding each other as friend on PSN and start the match as soon as possible. If a team is non-responsive or does not start the challenge 10 minutes past the match’s starting time, then the opponent has the right to submit a no-show report with photo or video evidence. An administrator will subsequently interfere and resolve the issue.
A team may take a combined total of 20 minutes of comfort time during the match after taking permission from the administrator. Any further delay to the match caused by the same team will result in a defwin for their opponent.
If a player disconnects after the first 30 seconds of a round, or after a kill is made, the match continues on and may not be restarted. Otherwise, teams may restart the match.
Each team gets to register 6 main players plus 2 substitutes. Once the tournament check in begins, the roster is saved and may not be changed. Only players listed in a team may participate with them.
Both team captains are responsible for submitting and approving scores. When the winning team is submitting the score, he/she must provide photo or video evidence of the results.
A defwin (default win) is defined as winning the round or match by default.
