To participate, a player must have a valid Steam account linked to their NUEL account. The player must use this account to play any and all of their tournament matches.
Player and team names should not contain any offensive or racist content, and player avatars should be appropriate and decent.
Teams need to check in each week before the deadline or will not be given any fixtures for that week.
Teams may have a coach using the in game coaching system by doing “coach ct” or “coach t” in console.
Results must be submitted by both captains on the tournament page before starting their next game. Screenshots of the final score should also be saved by both teams in case of a dispute.
Teams are expected to arrive promptly to all games. If a team does not have all 5 players ready to play 20 mins after the scheduled start time they will forfeit the game, (or 20 mins after both teams have finished the previous round match).
This tournament will be ran using the current competitive map pool.
Choice of starting side will be determined by a knife round, except in Bo3s where it is selected by the team that didn't pick the map.
Map selection for Bo1s will be determined by teams taking turns to veto one map until only one map remains, with Team B starting. Map selection for Bo3s is as follows:
Team B removes one of the 7 maps.
Team A removes one of the 6 remaining maps.
Team B picks one of the 5 remaining maps, will be played as 1st map.
Team A picks one of the 4 remaining maps, will be played as 2nd map.
Team B removes one of the 3 maps.
Team A removes one of the 2 remaining maps.
The last map will be, if needed, played as 3rd map.
