1) Team captains are required to join and communicate on Discord
2) Admins will not reply to tournament questions in private messages if it involves items discussed in the rulebook
Eligible Players & Teams
Make sure all players are eligible to play. In team games, all players must be registered in their corresponding team. Usage of player not belonging to the team, can result in disqualification.
Each team must be 5 players who can prove their residence in Belgium for the duration of the tournament.
Players may only play under one team at a time and organizations may only field one team per competitions.
Teams are not permitted to switch players from their roster for participation at the final event.
Since this tournament is a ‘’winner takes all’’ format, there will be no defined seeding going into the tournament. The seeding for the final event are determined by the results of the qualifiers.
If your opponent does not show after 15 minutes, you must contact an admin who will make the decision of postpone or forfeit results.
Match rules – Home team
Winner of the match is decided after one single game, in which the ‘’home team’’ decides if they start red or blue (home team is the team that is shown first in the ‘’matchup’’ overview) in the custom game.
The ‘’home team’’ sets up the custom game and does everything to provide the opposing team with the information in a timely manner needed to join the custom game.
Matches should be played as example in 5on5 with 5 players, if a side is missing a player the match can be played 4on5.
Once the tournament has begun the teams are frozen, no more changes are possible.
Match rules – Pick & Ban
The picks/bans take place in competitive "draft" mode:
● Blue side = A; Red side = B
● Bans: A-B-A-B-A-B
● Picks: A-B-B-A-A-B
● Bans: B-A-B-A
● Picks: B-A-A-B
In the event of a disconnection or bugsplat when loading, the game must be paused immediately until the 10 players are connected. The players are required to use their own League of Legends account. It is impossible to use another account than the one given during registration.
Each team is allowed 2 placeholders champion picks during a tournament pick & ban phase. In case you need to use a placeholder, you are forced to tell your opponent on LoL client chat before the champion is locked in. Placeholders are used in case a player doesn't own a champion his team intends to pick in a game, the player can pick a random uncommon champ to replace that champion. Always explain clearly that the picked champ is a placeholder for another champ (has to be named). When the opponents are informed you can lock in that champion and continue the pick phase. When finished picking all champs you leave champ select and remake the lobby.
Afterwards restart champ select but each player picks now the correct champion.
Match rules – Game remakes
The reasons which may justify a game remake are at the sole discretion of the competition's admin. When remaking a game, the picks/bans remain the same except in the event of a remake due to a bug turning out to be from a champion. In this case, it is the whole game (picks/bans included) which is remade and the champion in question banned.
Match rules – forfeits
