Demos and screenshots

It is important to take any screenshots that might help you if a problem arises during a match. Screenshots will be used as evidence when admins need to take a decisions. 

Miscellaneous rules

Once the match starts, neither clan can complain that the other clan is using a player which is not registered in the tournament. That should have been checked before the match started.

Once a match starts on the suggested server, a clan cannot claim the server has serious ping issues unless both teams agree the server is not fit to be used or the game server has major problems. Evidence must be taken of the serious disadvantage (preferably a screenshot with the full line-up with visible pings) caused by the server issues. 

If one member of a team says that his team is ready he is considered to speak for the whole team, regardless of his status in the clan. Once a team Ready's Up and the game has started it may only be restarted if both clans agree and final descesion to be taken by an admin.

Technical issues

If the server crashes, teams must wait for the server to restart and then resume playing from the score when the game has crashed (if a crash occurs in the middle of a round, that round must be restarted)

If server is restarted because of a crash, we can't do anything about coins so teams will have 1 coin / player

Each team has 1 allowed pause per side. They may use it only for solving technical issues or tactics. A pause can't be longer than 2 minutes.
