    Bracket Procedure

    • After check-in is complete, the bracket will be finalized and published. Teams can view this on the bracket itself and on their Match Dashboard.
    • For all your current matches, you can check the Match Dashboard and/or the bracket itself.
    • Please use the Battlefy match chat to communicate with the other team. Go to your active match (on the tournament page, your Match Dashboard, or the bracket itself) and use the chat on the match reporting page. If the other team doesn't respond, let us know on Discord.
    • Team Captains will be pinged in Discord to play their matches. All teams must be in the SQ Discord. Once you're in Discord, have your Team Captain get the captain role by going to the #bot text channel and typing !rank Team Captains
    • If you are a Free Agent You can head over to #bot and type !rank Free Agent to give yourself the Free Agent role. Use this to find other Free Agents to team with, or Captains to find players to fill your teams with.
    • Matches must start within ten minutes of becoming active on the bracket.
    • Teams that fail to start their match, show their activity, ping staff, or otherwise within the first ten minutes will receive a game loss. Another five minute failure to show will result in a disqualification.
    • Captains must report their scores on Battlefy immediately following a victory. Staff will ping any team failing to do so. Please work with us in #CaptainsChat if you have trouble reporting your scores.
    • Teams that do not communicate via Battlefy match chat or Discord will be considered inactive/unavailable/no-showed and risk disqualification.
    • Teams risk having their results voided and risk disqualification if they do not report their scores following a victory.


    • Teams have a maximum of three minutes to complete a voluntary substitution.
    • Teams have a maximum of five minutes to complete a non-voluntary substitution or any substitution resulted from a player changed due to connection issues.
    • All subsequent substitutions in the same set are allowed a maximum of two minutes.

    Lag, Disconnections, and Cheating

    • Teams are allowed one disconnection replay per tournament. A replay can be called if one of the following criteria is met:
