    Format


    • 4v4 Round-Robin Group Stage into Single-Elimination Bracket
      • In Group Stage, all teams will be placed into groups. Each team will play the other teams in their group once. The teams with the best results per group will advance to bracket.
    • Best of 3 sets in Group Stage. Best of 5 sets in Bracket. Best of 7 set in Grand Finals.

    Roster and Entry


    • Teams must consist of at least four members.
    • Teams are allowed up to 2 substitutes. These substitutes must be on your roster to be eligible to play.
    • Players' in-game names must match their tag as it appears on their Battlefy roster.
    • Teams are allowed to substitute players at any time between games.
    • Teams are allowed to play with less than four players if they cannot field four players.
    • Players are not allowed to be listed for more than one team or use another player's account. Doing so will result in disqualification of both teams involved.
    • Teams/players are allowed to stream their own matches if they are not on the main tournament stream, but do so at their own risk of potential stream sniping.
    • Teams must check-in before bracket begins.

    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.
    • 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.

    Maps, Modes, and Weapons/Gear


    • All weapon and gear combinations are legal.
    • All maps and modes are legal, except Turf War. Turf War will not be played.
    • Maps and modes for each round will be pre-determined by the tournament organizers. A map/mode list will be made available one week prior to the event start date. This list will be posted on the event page and in #Maps-and-Modes in the Squidboards Discord server.

    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:
    1. If neither team has gotten the objective to 50 or below within the first two minutes.
    2. If a DC occurs within the first minute.
    3. If a disconnection occurs, the team impacted must stop play immediately.
    • If a replay is called for, the team asking for a replay must provide a screenshot showing that one of these points are met and that a replay actually did occur (noted by a black icon on the top of the screen).
    • Teams are allowed to request admin assistance if a player(s) is lagging to the point of detrimentally affecting tournament play, and that player will be forced to substitute out if the game cannot continue due to lag.
    • Players are not allowed to use cheats, intentional exploits, or third-party programs in tournament play. Doing so will result in immediate disqualification.
    • Teams are encouraged to screenshot their victories in case their is a match dispute.
