MCS Tournament Rules

General

 


Teams will consist of a maximum of 5 total players. To be eligible to be apart of any team you must not be on a roster that has made it to league play in RLCS. Teams can add player to fill up their roster until the start of week 3 league play. At this point no players will be added. Teams wishing to add players prior to week 3 may do so but not within 30 mins before the start of the stream and during the stream .

Substitutions may occur in between Games in a Series, and Teams are limited to one Substitution per Series. Substitutions are not allowed during the Open Qualifier except in the event of a disconnect. If a player disconnects the team will have 10 mins to field a full  3 man team and continue the series. If the disconnect happens during  a game in progress the game will continue to its conclusion with the player who disconnects having the ability to return to the game if possible .

A player eliminated from the tournament cannot join another team.


If your game is chosen to be streamed, you will be contacted and asked to hold off on playing your next game. The streamers will create the lobby and give out the information. The streamers will also inform you as to which color to join. Please stay on that color the entire time


Teams who wish to change their names during League Play of the MCS because of sponsorship issues will be forced to wait until the start of a new week.


 

Please do not start a match without the streamers.

 

League Play

League Play Tiebreakers If two or more Teams achieve the same number of Match wins at the end of League Play, ties will be resolved by applying the following tiebreaking scenario.

  1. Head to head series. The league play matches beween the 2 tied teams will be looked at and whichever team had more wins would move on.
  2. Game win percentage in league play.

Cheating

Any cheating, as determined by the Tournament Organizers in their sole discretion, will result in an immediate forfeiture and additional penalties depending on the severity of the infraction.

Playing through a game = consent . If the conditions are not right (the map chosen is not the correct one) backout immediately.
