Players can enter a draft for either 2v2SnD(when applicable or 5v5. Players entering draft will be paired with other draft players automatically for bracket. Because players in draft may be at a disadvantage, having never practiced with their team, their entry fee's will be discounted. Those who do not make it draft because of an odd amount of participants will get their payment back.

Game Timers:

 -Takedown Timer: A strict 10 minute timer will be enforced at    the end of a full game. When a game is over, both teams must have their equipment cleared from the tournament station in this time limit.

-Set up Timer: Teams will also have 15 minutes to fully set up their station. if a  team is not fully set up in 15 minutes from the time that the TO has called the match, the team that is not prepared will be forced to start the match or be DQ'd. in the event that both teams are not prepared and no other match can be ran, both teams must start the match or be DQ'd.

Team Roster:

Teams must submit their team roster at the door during registration. At this time, teams may submit 2 substitute teammates. No roster changes can be made after this roster has been locked in without authorization from staff.


Subbing players from another team(that is also entered into the LAN) is allowed. However in the case that both teams with the same members play each other, the substitute player must play on their original team(signed on roster) during this match.

In the case that a team is un-able to play their match with a full roster: that team may choose to play the match without their full roster or forfeit the match.
