Any bodies, decals, wheels, rocket boosts, toppers, antennae, goal explosions, trails, or engine audios that are currently disabled in competitive 3v3 queues are not permitted for use in official matches.

3.2. Leaving and Rejoining Teams

Players are not allowed to leave their team and then rejoin to put them on the other side of the arena and will be considered cheating.

3.3. Spectators

Spectators are permitted in game lobbies for the sole purpose of streaming their school team’s match to the School’s Twitch or Youtube channel. Spectators may not have any communication with team members while the game is currently being played and must not be a member of a roster participating in the match. The use of all cameras is permitted during the match. At the end of the match, the stream vod must be shared with the other team.

 

4. Stoppage of Play

Should a player disconnect from the game less than 30 seconds into the match or before the shot to make the first goal of the game is taken the game will be restarted. If either of these events have occurred, the game will continue. Disconnected players will be able to rejoin the lobby for the next game. 

 

5. Team Rosters

Rocket team rosters require a minimum of 3 players and are limited to a maximum of 5 players (3 starting players and 2 substitute players). Rosters that do not meet the minimum or exceed the maximum number of players will not be allowed to participate in official matches until their roster size meets the set requirements. Player Substitutions may be made between games.
