The matches will not be postponed due to technical problems and will be played anyway. If the pause time is exceeded, the game continues, even if the problem is not resolved.

1.4.1. Disconnected Player

If a player leaves the server during a match, the round will continue without interruption until the end (the round begins at the first second of the preparation phase) if one team leaves the round before the end, the other team will get the turn point. Once the round is over, the player who has logged out will be allowed to join the server or a new host may be requested.

The match is considered "live" when the operator's ban begins. At least half of the players must remain (3 players in a 5v5 match and 2 players in a 3v3 match) and the match must be played until the end of the match and a winner is chosen.

If this is not possible due to connection problems, this will be considered a lost round to the team which may have all the players on the server.

Each team can re-host the server once on a map. If such problems reappear, for example a player who abandons when the match has already been rehosted, the team must play the map with the conclusion of the remaining players. Any abuse of this rule will be considered cheating and will result in penalty and even disqualification of the team.

Each user is responsible for his own material.

1.4.2. Rehost and Timeout

Rehosts are possible up to 30 seconds in the action phase if no player has been killed.

Should an official league observer be present :

Players of the team in question should indicate that they wish for a rehost in game chat. The game observer will then respond with a confirmation should the original message asking for a rehost have been posted within 30 seconds of the action phase.

Should the match be played without an observer :

All members of the resettlement team must leave the match before the first 30 seconds of the action phase. If all members of the rehosting team have not left the match within the time limit, this will count as loss of the round. A rehosting does not have to be confirmed by the opponent.

If a team leaves the game because of a protest, it does not count as a rehosting.

After a rehost, the defending team may pick a different bomb site and operators than they did in the original round.

Administrators can decide that multiple re-hosts are appropriate depending on the circumstances. For example, Ubisoft servers have problems.

If a game is interrupted, it must be continued where it left off, by re-host. If a game has to be replayed due to a change of host, players must choose the same operators, the same sixth choice, the same bombing sites and the same equipment.

The number of re-hosts allowed depends on the format of the correspondence:

  • Bo1: max. 2 re-hosts (1 per team)
  • Bo2: max. 4 re-hosts (1 per team on each map)
  • Bo3: max. 6 re-hosts (1 per team on each map)

If a team does not resume the match 5 minutes after a reorganization, the administrative team must be informed thereof by means of a protest. The administration team will allow a little more time depending on the circumstances.

1.4.3. Unauthorized Operators

In the event that your opposing team plays as a prohibited operator in the action phase, a protest must be opened with a screenshot of the dashboard / player in the action phase where it is clearly visible that the operator was played.

Currently banned operators:

  • No operators are banned at the moment.

Playing as a prohibited operator results in a game loss. Subsequent use of unauthorized operators may result in disqualification.
