Once this button appears you have 10 minutes to join the server. You can join the server by clicking on the “PLAY” button or copying the “connect serverip” command into your CS:GO console.

Warm-Up: Both captains have to type “!ready” to start the match, you have a total of 10 minutes to use the command or else the match will be aborted and the
captain who did not !ready will have his team disqualified from the tournament, if both teams have the same amount of AFK the team with highest ELO will advance in the tournament and be disqualified in the following round.

Match Start: The match will go into the knife round. Once the knife round has been completed the winning captain needs to pick a side by using the “!stay”/”!switch” commands. If the captain fails to select a side within 1 minute of winning the round the sides will be randomly decided by the server.
