Disputing Teams must be able to provide video proof of the violation otherwise the dispute will not be considered.

The administration reserves the right to restrict additional Character and Weapon skins at any time.


 MATCH HOSTING

Please see your match details page for information regarding hosting. The team with the total number of rounds won accumulated from maps played within the series will host the last map in the series if there is one. If total rounds won during the series is tied, the higher seeded team (closest to zero) will host the last map within the series. 

The team who does not host the map will be given side choice unless otherwise stated.

DISCONNECTIONS

Control

If a player disconnects after the first 30 seconds of the map starting and/or a point being scored, the game must be continued and the disconnected Player should rejoin the game. If the team with the disconnected Player leaves the lobby, their team may forfeit the round/game in question. The Administration reserves the right to make the final decision in any disconnect situations.

Execution & Escalation

If a Player disconnects at the beginning of a round and prior to any players being killed or a placed weapon/grenade being picked up, each team should screenshot the overhead map showing the weapon placements (if relevant) and the host should restart the round using the in game round restart feature once the disconnected player has joined back into the lobby. 

If a Player disconnects AFTER a Player has been killed or a weapon/grenade has been picked up, the round is to be completed. If playing Escalation, the weapon placement phase will be completed as well. Once the disconnected player has rejoined the lobby, the host should restart the round using the in game round restart feature.
