Communication during a match
First two teams from each group will head to the Gold Tournament while the last two will head to Silver Tournament. Best of 1 Series will be played throughout all group stage matches. Teams will than head to a double elimination tournament where all matches played in the Winner Bracket and Looser Bracket will be BO1 while the Semi Final and Final of both brackets will be that of a BO3 series. The Grand Final will be played in a BO5 series format, where the team coming from the Winner Bracket will start with a 1 point advantage.
When a match starts from the champion select onwards no one is allowed to communicate with the 5 playing players. Should someone be caught talking to the team he or she cannot spectate the team again and if the problem persists he will be asked to leave the venue. Should a team use someone to seek information regarding the opposing team while playing, that team can be disqualified immediately. It is up to the match admins to decide and take action when such rule is breached.
The Administrators reserve the right to modify the rules as needed. This includes changes due to software updates or releases, event organizer decisions and all other changes deemed necessary to run a successful tournament. Players are responsible to check the rules on a regular basis and prior to the event to ensure they are in complete compliance. Players must understand that rules listed are guidelines to ensure fair and competitive play and are subject to interpretation by the administrators based on the spirit of the game.
