Tournament Rules[edit]

  • Teams may request roster changes up until 24 hours before their first match. Players joining the roster may not have played for any other team during the tournament.
  • Only players that participate in the team’s final match in the tournament will receive rewards.
  • If a player disconnects during a tournament game, play must continue. The match game will not be restarted. In the event of a server crash or other event that causes all players to disconnect, the match game will be restarted.
  • Play will begin when all players have pressed the ready button, or when the judge manually begins the match game. Judges will manually begin a game after all players have entered into the map and the judges have told the players to leave spectator mode.
  • If all players are not present and ready at the designated start time, judges will wait no longer than 5 minutes to start the game.
  • In the event of a tie-breaker game, the team with the highest cumulative player score will be declared the winner.
  • Teams that forfeit any rounds in the finals will be disqualified and will not receive prizes.
  • Players are expected to act with courtesy and respect toward all other participants, administrators, and spectators. Any excessive vulgarity or “bad-mannering” may lead to a player or team’s disqualification from an event.
  • Guild names and player names must abide by the Guild Wars 2 Terms of Service and Code of Conduct.
  • All rules are subject to a tournament organizer or tournament administrator’s interpretation. We reserve the right to alter or amend any of the aforementioned rules without notice.
