Registration

  • Ex: Registering as team #67 but checking in as the 4th team does not guarantee seeding.
  • Ex 2: Registering as team #54 & checking in gives a very good chance of being 1 of the 64 teams seeded.

Check In

  • Captains must check in for the entire team, or all players must check in.
  • Any issues with check in please use the GLG Discord and contact an admin
  • Check In starts 60 minutes before the start of the tournament.
  • Any teams not checked in will not be seeded
  • CHECK IN ENDS 10 Minutes Before Tournament Starts!
  • We have set a team limit, however you may still sign-up if that limit is reached. If a team does not check in, but you do, then you will be placed on a wait list and added in when the bracket goes live.

RULES

  • The host team should add and invite the opposing players but both teams are ultimately responsible for this.
  • Please Add Your Opponents ASAP To Start Your Match On Time
  • This Makes the Tournament Run Much Smoother
  • Please Cooperate With Admins
  • Please Be Honest
  • No Hate Speech (MATCH FORFEITURE FOR VIOLATIONS)
  • Respect Each Other
  • Do Not Take Body Shots Personally :)
  • Keep team and player names clean. Judgement is left up to the tournament organizers (Nothing discriminatory, sexual, keep it PG-13)
  • We will ask you to change your name, if you do not change it 24 hours before the start time, your team will be removed.

DELAY OF GAME

  • You may only delay a game upon GLG staff approval
  • Any delays without our approval will result in a forfeiture -Ex: If Team A lets match check-in timer go until the last few minutes, then readies up, they have 5 minutes to start the game. Any further delay will result in Team B winning.
  • If a pause is initiated, there is a hard 5 minute limit. Any pause lasting longer than 5 minutes results in a forfeiture for the team that initiated the pause
  • Time extensions for a pause may only be granted by GLG Staff

PAUSING

  • Pause can ONLY happen during the buy phase.
  • Pause reason must be stated in MATCH CHAT AS WELL AS PARTY GAME CHAT.
  • Broadcasters/Admins can not see game chat, only party chat.
  • TECH PAUSE: 5 minute limit only until the game must be continued or forfeited.
  • TACTICAL (TAC) PAUSE: 60s a team per half.
  • If a player lags out mid round, that round must be played out, you may only pause during the buy phase.

HOSTING ISSUES

  • If Host Is Unplayable (Lagging, Skipping, etc).
  • Leave/End The Game Immediately At The Start Of The Next Round (During Countdown) And Ask Your Opponent To Switch Hosts.
  • This can only happen within the first 2 rounds and only 2 host switches are permitted at which point the game must continue.
  • Leaving/Ending Game Mid Round Results In MATCH FORFEITURE.
  • Contact an admin via GLG Discord
  • Default Server Illinois, or the server that creates the most equal ping between both teams.
  • Some example scenarios where a server choice needs to be determined in a consistent manner: 1. Team A has a good average ping to Illinois, but a higher average ping to Texas. Team B has a good average ping to Texas, but a higher average ping to Illinois. 2. Team A has a good average ping to Illinois, but a lower average ping to Texas. Team B's best player has < ~15ms ping to Illinois, but their latency spikes to 60 on Texas. Therefore, they would prefer to play on Illinois.
  • If any of these or similar circumstances occur, please reach out to a GLG admin.

SPORTSMANSHIP

  • It is expected that you treat all players with respect. Any form of serious unsportsmanlike conduct will result in a forfeit of the game and series.
  • This applies to all forms of communication, such as Discord, Lobby/In-Game Chat, Twitch, Match Chat, etc.
