ESL currently hosts cups in Europe. The majority of the team (>50%) has to be from the region they're participating in.
4.1. Game preparations
Please resolve any problems that might occur before a match starts. Connection or hardware problems during a match could lead to a disqualification by ESL admins. Make sure all players are eligible to play. In team games, all players must be registered for their corresponding team's roster.
4.2. Substitute Players
It is only allowed to substitute a player before the match starts. If the match is started all players of a team must play the game until the end. It is possible to switch players in a Bo3 between the maps. A team is allowed to have 1 substitute player.
4.3. No show
If a participant cannot play at the scheduled start time, we will remove the team from participating in the tournament.
4.4. Number of players
Teams are allowed to play one match per round with player, in case of technical problems.
In the case that a player(s) disconnects during a match, the team is allowed to continue to play the match at a disadvantage.
Participants can choose to forfeit a match if they wish. Forfeiting will result in 0 points from that match and possible penalty points.
In case of a tie in the results, the first tiebreaker will be the average placement of the teams during the latest round. In case they still tie the second tiebreaker will be the number of kills. If still tied the winner will be chosen randomly.
If a match was incorrectly reported into our system, your team has 10 minutes to protest (under [play.eslgaming.com/protest/add]) the report. Match protests must include media evidence clearly showing the results of the match/series. Teams are responsible for providing proof of match results in case of disputes.
A re-host can only be played with admin initiation. Disconnects and lag issues will only qualify for a re-host if the issue occurs within the first 60 seconds of the game and affects a significant amount of players, barring any unforeseen situations.
Observers are organized by ESL admins and people that are given permission by an admin (e.g. shoutcasters or streamers).
All results will be input by ESL personnel. If anything is unclear, participants should have screenshots available to verify the result and file a protest.
5. Communication & Support
Please submit a support ticket for any assistance during the cup. For communications, we ask teams to use our PUBG Discord-server.
All participants must adhere to the decisions and rules of the tournament organizers, admins, and referees. All decisions are final, except in cases where the option to appeal is clearly stated. Conversations, either verbal or written, between organizers, admins or referees, and participants are confidential. Publicly posting or sharing these conversations with outside parties is strictly forbidden, unless permission is obtained.
5.2. Match Media
All match media (screenshots, demos, etc) must be kept for at least 14 days. Faking or manipulating match media is forbidden and will result in severe penalties. Match media should be named clearly based on what it is. It is not possible to file a protest or write a support ticket to complain about bad match media naming. However, if an admin is hindered in their work because of bad match media names then it can be punished.
5.3. Casting and Streaming
Casting an ESL match is only permitted with an ESL admin agreement. Personal streaming is always allowed, for any other purposes to get an agreement please write a Support ticket.
5.4. Personal Streaming
Personal Streaming is always allowed if ESL TV is not casting the same match. If ESL TV is casting a match, personal streaming is not allowed without an admin agreement. Personal Streaming of a match shown by ESL TV, without permission from an ESL admin, can lead to a disqualification of the team or ban of the participant streaming content during the tournament. Any such streaming by ESL TV will always be announced before match start.
6. Penalty Point Catalogue
In general, a player and the team can receive up to 6 penalty points per match, unless a single violation has a higher punishment. A team is only punished once per violation, regardless of how many players. Where a player or team receives penalty points for multiple violations, the penalty points are added together.
