If a team is unable to field 5 players during the check-in or in the warm up, a loss will be given to said team. An admin is however able to restart the map in certain scenarios.

Lobby invitation will be sent 10 minutes before the map veto and will be visible on the dashboard.Upon the lobby countdown completing with all players in, team captains will begin the map veto process. The system will randomly choose which team goes first. The map veto process is completed on our website and has the following rules.

The rotation for best-of-one is: B/B/B/B/B/B – The last map will be selected to play.
The rotation for best-of-three is: B/B/P/P/B/B – The last map will be selected as the deciding map, if necessary.
The rotation for best-of-five is: B/B/P/P/P/P – The last map will be selected as the deciding map, if necessary.
Knife Round will determine which team gets to choose starting side. After winning the Knife Round, any member of the winning team can type either „.stay” or “.switch”. The match will then briefly restart and continue as normal. Teams have 30 seconds to decide which side to start. This is currently not displayed in game.

Pausing is allowed by team captains by entering “.pause”. Pauses may only take place once per half, for each team. Anyone besides team captains found pausing or abusing this function could face disqualification. Examples of technical issues requiring a pause is server lag, which a team captain can then report to an admin, player crash etc. Pauses will have a 5 minute timer and can be resumed by entering “.unpause”.
