Delays & Forfeits
Players must be online and ready to play at the designated match start time. “Ready to play” means that the player must be present and ready to begin the game within 15 minutes after the official match time. If a participant is not ready to play 15 minutes after the scheduled match time, please submit a protest ticket. This is the fastest way to get your match checked to move on to the next round. In case the bracket is already behind the schedule the 15 minutes counter starts as soon as the match is available. If you're unable to join a lobby due to technical difficulties with the game, please notify the opposing player immediately and inform him that you are attempting to connect.
The result must be immediately added and confirmed by both parties, even if more match records are missing and in need of uploads.
Players are responsible for taking a screen capture of the results to be used as valid proof in the event of a protest. Following the match, both teams are expected to enter the match score. The score should be entered as numerical values where one win equals one point. For example, if a team wins 2 games and loses 1 game, the score submitted should be “2” and “1” with the numbers being entered into the respective boxes.
