Presence & Punctuality
If one team has not shown any sign of activity the whole week (that includes: No team member wrote a match comment, no team member has joined the lobby, all other attempts to contact the team failed), the opponents should report that 15 minutes after the match time. A default win for both games will be confirmed by an admin under normal circumstances. The team does not have to stay online.
If one team is not ready to start the match (but has shown activity), the opponents should report that 30 minutes after the match time. A default win for the first game will be confirmed by an admin under normal circumstances. The teams still have to stay online and play the second game. If the same team is still not ready to play 60 minutes after the match time, the opponents should request a default win for the second game.
If prefered, a team can always suggest a reschedule instead of requesting a default win. However, this must be discussed and approved by the tournament organiser or the tournament admins as well as both teams.
After the sign-up has ended, all teams, that have only 4 or less players are considered ineligible.
Adding new members to a team is limited to 2 players per team per season.
A player may only take part in a match as official team member, if he hasn't joined the team or changed his game account within 24 hours prior to the first round of the league commencing. Otherwise he will count as a stand-in and the team has to comply with the stand-in rules.
Stand-ins are persons used by a team as a player during a match, without being an official team member.
The maximum number of stand-ins is limited to 2 players at a time.
A stand-in may not be a member of a team of a higher division.
The default server location is South Africa. Other servers are used, if both teams agree or the administration decides on it.
