2.1Teams and team captains1v1 players are their team captain, 2v2 and 3v3 must state a team captain
16
Team captains will have further responsibilities, noted futher in this document.
17
2.12Auto teamsIn auto teams, when teams are announced it is down to teams to communicate. Admins can be messaged regarding tournament issues but all efforts must be made to contact all team members first.
18
In auto teams, players cannot change team mates. Auto matches are to let new people meet each other and to encourage communication. If a player cannot attend, a similar MMR player can be subbed in. This is not encouraged though.
19
Auto teams are sorted by ranking due to MMR then further refined.
20
2.13SubstitutesA best of series is classed as a series
21
1 sub can be used per series
22
2.14Disconnects and dropoutsDisconnected players have 3 minutes to rejoin the game before being ineligible and a substitute is used
23
In between games, teams have 5 minutes to source a substitute should they not already have one
24
If a player cannot make a tournament, it is up to the player and/or the team to source a replacement (in autos of a similar MMR preferably). It is not down to VOLUTION staff to source. Following this:
25
If a player drops out completely and cannot be replaced, it is up to the other team to decide whether they want to do a 2v2 or whether they want to play a 2v3
26
3.1ServersServers will be balanced via choosing an equal ping server or by going to best/worst/best/worst/equal for matches
27
3.12NA/EU Brackets (or any other region)When VOLUTION is of an equal NA/EU/region size then tournament brackets will occur. However, a staff infrastructure must be present for this to work to not put undue pressure on one region to staff another regions' timezone.
28
4.1TimingsTimes must be announced when the tournament is announced
29
Times can't be changed after the announcement
30
Times must be GMT first though taking into account duration for other countries
31
Duration estimates must be published when timings are announced
32
4.12DurationTimings must be based on the assumption that 1 game could = 10 minutes (overtime and replays)
33
Bo3 = 30 minutes
34
Bo5 = 50 minutes
35
Depending on the size of the tournament, this will be multiplied by the amount of brackets
36
5.1HostingUntil tournaments are improved, private matches will be the basis of all tournaments
37
6.1Qualifiers and sharing resultsIf qualifiers are necessary due to excess demand, the tournament admins will tell teams which team will host the lobby and screen shots from both team captains will be needed to validate a result
38
6.2Finals/Semi FinalsTournament admin(s) must host the lobby and spectate the finals to validate results
39
7.1Moderator(s) and admin(s)Moderator(s) and/or admin(s) must host a tournament
40
Anyone hosting a tournament must be available for the whole duration of the tournament
41
They must be contactable at all points throughout the tournament
42
Moderator(s) and/or admin(s) must be announced when the tournament is announced
43
If they are taking place in the tournament, another admin or moderator must take their place
44
8.1ReplaysEach team must nominate a team captain
45
Volution will tell a team captain to save a replay for each match
46
In 1v1, both players must save a replay
47
Replays must then be sent to tournament admins for sharing content
48
9.1StreamingFinals and semi finals can be streamed and must be hosted by a Volution admin who will be spectator
49
9.2Multiple game streamingThis is currently not possible on one account and so matches must be picked if they are wanting to be streamed at any point earlier in the tournament.
50
