- Teams are highly encouraged to finish their allocated matches by the specified week
- IF both teams HAVE to postpone a match and both agree, please speak to an admin. Teams will still have to complete their other allocated matches for the week.
- Match Day Process
- 30 minutes before the scheduled match time has arrived, your team captain should check in on discord and @opponent and @the designated admin
- Your designated admin will create the lobby and share the password
- Teams must then check in by being in the lobby before the scheduled match time. If a team is not in the lobby 1 minute after the scheduled match time, they will forfeit Game 1. If they are not in the match 30 minutes after it has begun, they will forfeit Game 2 as well.
- Use the flip coin command in chat to determine which team will pick side for Game 1. The team that did not pick will pick the side for Game 2.
- Once both sides are ready, please also check if your match has any official casters, and the admin will start the game.
- Each team has 10 minutes of pause time per game, after which the opponent may resume.
