Teams will load into a DUOS public lobby for their matches and attempt to accumulate the most eliminations at the end of the match.

Teams are permitted to work together, however, you may not intentionally cause the death of your opponent or negatively impact your opponent's gameplay. Doing so will result in a forfeit of the map. Cases of possible greifing will need to be provided to tournament live support in video form. Matches may result in a forfeit or replay and will be at the discretion of UMG tournament admins.

When reporting your match please be aware of the following format:

                                                                               Best of 1 Match = 1-0

The group of 2 shall invite 1 player from the opposing team.

Two games will be played at the same time to try and accumulate the most eliminations.

The team which ends the Battle Royale round with the most eliminations will win the map. Please see your match page in-case your match has more than 1 map being played.

Eliminations made after a match has concluded will not count.

A match is considered concluded once all players from both teams have been eliminated.

Upon match completion, total eliminations will be added up for all three members on your team across the two matches to determine the winner. The team with the most eliminations wins the match. If eliminations are tied teams/players will replay their match until a winner is determined.

In the instance both Squads lobbies make it into the same match they are allowed to hunt each other freely (you still can not Sabotage inside your Squad)

As there are two sides to this match in the event of forfeiture one side of the match can be disqualified and the other still count

All teams should provide video proof of the following:

LAG

A team has 30 seconds to leave the match due to lag after landing, and it will be replayed with valid proof of the lag from multiple players perspectives. If not replayed supply this proof in dispute ticket for the possibility of a match cancel.

CONNECTION ISSUES

Disconnections 30 seconds after landing will result in a replay given no one has accumulate any eliminations.

Disconnections that occur after eliminations have been accumulated (only by the people in your match/lobby) the disconnect will act as your elimination point.

No replay will be issued without proof of disconnect. Your teammate must have left within 30 seconds after your disconnection in order for it to have gotten a replay or cancel with valid proof supplied.

Upon a replay due to disconnect, you must resume play as the same character at the time of disconnection.

IN-GAME GLITCH

If a team experiences an in-game glitch within 30 seconds of all team members touching the ground, all members of your UMG team must leave the game immediately. If you experience an in-game glitch after 30 seconds from all members touching the ground, it is the admin's discretion if the match is to be replayed depending on the seriousness of the glitch, duration and if it drastically affected the outcome of the match. Enrolling in tournament matches, you agree to the known glitches and accept the outcome. If the team that glitched out at the time of the glitch occurring is up in kills, it is at the admin's discretion if the match is replayed.



If a match is accepted and players are to be found competing in a region not allowed in this match, meaning if it's a North America match and European players accept it the match should be immediately cancelled. If both teams do not agree to cancel, a match dispute ticket must be made and the admin will cancel the match.

If the match is fully played out, the results will stand, however, the team competing in the match from the incorrect region will have their team disbanded and will receive a 24-48 hour ban for a regional rule violation.

3.  Valid proof of a no-show can be described as a video that is at least 5 minutes, but preferably 15 minutes, showing the hosting team refusing to invite you.  You must also make an attempt to invite your opponent and show your opponent refusing to join your lobby. No show proof can NOT be pictures.

WHAT TO DO IF YOUR OPPONENT IS NO-SHOWING:

1. In the event your opponent is refusing to play your match, you need to have at-least 5 to 15 minutes of video proof showing that you are trying to invite him/her and/or are attempting to get in contact with them.

2. After the forfeit time, please uplaod your video proof and submit it in a dispute ticket. Your ticket will be handled in order it is received in. For a faster ticket response time, please view our Prime Membership page.

2. As soon as your match is accepted, start recording until the match starts!

4. If your opponents are stalling, start recording!



Hacks

If a team is found to be using hacks, the whole roster will be punished, up to a ban from the website forever.

Communication

1. The use of any communications other than what is provided within the game is strictly prohibited. There are exceptions to this rule in which outside communication can be utilized. These exceptions include, but are not limited to: games that give you no advantage by using outside communication, games that do not have an in-game voice option, and games in which the rules specifically state that outside communication is allowed.

Cheating in Matches

1. UMGO has a zero tolerance policy for cheating; teams caught cheating, “glitching,” or abusing in-game mechanics in any way will be removed from UMG Online.



Acquiring Proof

1. Proof may be acquired by recording situations and all matches. Keep in mind, may the situation arise where a Dispute is made by the opposing team, and you are unable to provide valid proof of winning the previous match, you risk the match being cancelled. It is suggested to all users of UMGO to obtain valid proof, Disputed or not, to be safe.

2. All proof must be recorded an uploaded using the console's (Xbox One / PS4) "share" system; keep in mind, if a dispute occurs and there is not a direct upload from the console's share system, the user risks the match being cancelled. PVR Proof is accepted, but the console share system is the preferred method of accepted proof. If you are unable to paste your share system link into the provided proof slot in the ticket center, we suggest putting the link into a URL Shortener and using that link in your ticket.

3. If you do not use the consoles DVR feature, you risk your proof being considered "Insufficient". We HIGHLY suggest you use your consoles DVR feature for proof.

4. If you are unsure what proof to gather in a certain situation, visit our live-support and we will be glad to assist you!


Submitting Proof

1. When submitting proof, you must post the direct URL in the ticket. It is not the responsibility of a UMGO Staff Member to go outside of the direct link provided to search for the proof attempting to be submitted.

2. For proof to be considered valid, it must have the full scoreboard with gamertags, with the proof being clear enough for Staff to read it. Keep in mind, if valid proof is not provided, as it is the users primary responsibility to be sure it is in a Ticket, the proof provided that does not meet these standards will be considered “Insufficient” for the match.

3. Submitting fake, irrelevant, or old proof may result in a temporary suspension from UMGO.

4. Any conversation may not be considered valid proof; this includes, but is not limited to: Twitter conversations, PMs, AIMs, Skype, or messages through Xbox Live or Playstation Network. This means, messages are NOT a form of valid proof.

Valid Proof

  • No Shows - For no-show proof to be valid, it MUST be at-least 5 to 15 minutes long in a video form.
  • Forfeit (Wrong Rules) - For wrong rule proof to be valid, it MUST be in a video form. In the video, it needs to show what rule is wrong, and the FULL scoreboard so we can verify the gamertags. In your ticket, explain what rule is wrong.
  • Forfeit (Illegal Items) - If you are forfeiting someone for using illegal items (whether it's a perk, banend gun, ect) we highly suggest it be in a video form as it's less likely to be marked as invalid. It needs to clearly show them what they are using, and the full screoboard/gamertags. In the ticket, explain what illegal item they are using.

Additional Information

1) ALWAYS! Put the last four digits of the match ID in your clan tag. This makes it so people cannot use old proof against you.

2) If your video is longer than five minutes long, please provide time-stamps of what you are claiming is happening in the video for the admin. Without that, your proof may be marked as invalid.

3) Video proof is prefered rather than screenshots. In the event that video proof is provided by one team, and screenshots by the other, staff members have the right to side with the video proof.

1. It is the responsibility of all teams involved in a match to report scores. Teams must report the match within 2 Hours of completion.

2. Teams found reporting the win for no reason will result in a forfeit of the match and will risk suspension from UMG Online for Disputing on Purpose.

3. Reporting a match before it has been played is NOT a forfeit.  If a team reports their win or a match issue prior to the match being played and that team loses, they are required to submit a ticket under the category "Accept Loss".  Not doing so may also result in a suspension from UMG Online for Disputing on Purpose. If your opponent reports a match issue prior to the match being played, you are still responsible for gathering proof of your claims (ex: no show).
