5. Match Procedures

5.1 Before the Match Start

The team on the left in the Battlefy Matchroom should ban a map first. The map banning process should be done through MapbanGG. Team Captains have a total of ten (10) minutes to vote for the maps. If a Team Captain uses more than this, the team will be disqualified from the Tournament. Each vote is a maximum of 210 seconds. If a Team Captain does not vote, a forfeit win will be awarded to the opposing team. The game must be hosted on a dedicated server. The team on the left in the Battlefy Matchroom must host the game lobby. The dedicated server location must be settled by default (based on ping). When a team has all their players in the game lobby, they are counted as ready and the match, considering both rosters are complete, can be started.

5.2 Communication

All communication with the Match Officials is expected to be in English. All communication in-game and on the website is also recommended to be in English.

5.3 Match Interrupted

5.3.1 If a match is accidentally interrupted for any reason (e.g. player crash, server crash, network cuts) the Match Official may decide to resume the match to a round before the issue was present to ensure the competitive integrity of the match.

5.3.2 Re-hosts may be done if no players were killed in the first thirty (30) seconds of Action Phase. Proof may need to be provided by the teams to confirm that the re-host has been done in the right circumstances.

5.3.3 All players of the re-hosting team have to leave the match before the first thirty (30) seconds of the Action Phase passed. If not all players of the re-hosting team left the match within the given time, it will count as a round loss. A re-host does not have to be confirmed by the opponent. If a team leaves the game because of a support ticket, this will not count as a re-host. Match Officials may decide that multiple re-hosts are appropriate depending on the circumstances.

5.3.4 If a match is interrupted then it should be continued where it left off, by re-host. If a round is to be replayed due to a re-host, Players must choose the same Operators, same 6th Pick, same Bombsites and the same Equipment.

5.3.5 The number of authorized re-hosts are: one (1) per team, per map.

5.3.6 Should a team not resume the match ten (10) minutes after a re-host, the Match Officials must be informed. Additional time may be given by the Match Officials depending on the circumstances.

5.4 After the Match

5.4.1 Both Teams are responsible for entering correct results on the Battlefy Matchroom. Therefore, both teams should take a screenshot at the end of the match, where the Match Officials can clearly see the correct result. The screenshots may be requested to be submitted as proof of result by a Match Official.

  • Overall Results BO1: 1-0 or 0-1
  • Overall Results BO3: 2-0 or 0-2 or 2-1 or 1-2

5.4.2 If Teams have a conflict in the match, they must open a support ticket, so the Match Officials can make a decision. The decision may also mean that both teams are disqualified if there is not enough proof for either Team to be the clear winner.

5.4.3 A Match result entered for a match that has not yet been played out is considered as a falsified result and may be punished with disqualification.
