GENERAL RULES TOURNAMENT
How 2v2 Works: Teams will compete in a points race based on their best 3 games in their 1-hour allotted time. A Tournament Organizer (TO) will be assigned to each team prior to playing matches. Each team will join into their own individual lobby together. When each team has joined their respective lobbies, they will notify their TO they are ready. Each team will have five (5) minutes to join the lobby and ready up. When teams have identified as being ready, their TO will inform each team when to start game. Games may not start until the TO gives the okay to start. At the end of each game, the team will leave their results up on their respective screens and report to their TO. Once the TO has recorded the score, the process will repeat until 1-hour allotted time period has expire. After the 1-hour allotted time period has expired, the TO will tally up the best 3 games per each team and submit them. Only scores submitted by TO’s will count. The Teams with the highest combined will win.
Scoring: Matches will be scored on a point basis. The break-down is as follows:
1 point per kill - 10 points for a win
Reporting: At the end of every game, each team MUST call over assigned Tournament Organizer to report team score for that game. The Tournament Organizer MUST record Game 1 results before you move on to your next match. After all games of the Match or Pool Play have been played, players and TOs will initial scoreboard for that game, ensuring everything has been reported correctly. Any team caught trying to start another match before being approved by a Tournament Organizer will be disqualified.
Tiebreaker: If at the end of the 1 hour time period, 2 teams are tied with points, both teams will play a tie-breaker game. The team with the most points in the tie-breaker game will be declared the winner. If still tied, teams will repeat this process until a winner is declared.
Legends/Weapons: All characters, weapons and special abilities are allowed.
Reviving: Reviving/respawning is allowed. The match will be over once ALL players are dead. Or game has been won.
Kills While Downed: All kills and damage will count.
Lag/Settings: Any issues with Lag will be handled on a case by case basis. The Tournament Organizers will have final say.
Disconnections: All disconnections will be handled on a case by case basis. The Tournament Organizers will have final say.
Controllers: All standard controllers, including mouse and keyboard, are permitted. Macro functions (e.g. turbo buttons) are not permitted. Mouse and keyboard will not be allowed for PS4 entrants. (This tournament will be played on PC).
Stoppage of Play: Tournament Organizers may halt a Game or Match at any time and for any reason. In the event of a stoppage of play, Players must remain at their devices and may not communicate with other Players until the Game or Match is resumed. Stoppage of play is to only be by Tournament Organizers. The competing teams must notify a problem to TOs within the first 30 seconds of the game and no kills or deaths by either team have been recorded.
Disqualifications: You can be disqualified for not following event and/or an individual game’s tournament rules. If you are disqualified from a game, you are not entitled to a refund. If you are on time and follow listed rules (and common sense) this will never be an issue for you. If you do not know where to be and at what time, or what rules to follow, ask a Tournament Organizer. Tournament Organizer rulings are final. Arbitration will only be provided, as warranted, by Battle For The East’s Event Directors.
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. Teams caught cheating, glitching, or abusing in-game mechanics in any way, may forfeit the map, match or be banned at a staff members discretion.
