Map & Side selection:
  • Starting side for each match will be determined by a knife-only round. The team that wins the knife round will pick which side they start the game on. A draw/tie for the knife round will result in starting sides to be randomly assigned by LANified! Tournament Administration.
  • bo1 (Best-Of-1) Matches - Maps will be agreed upon between the captains of the paired teams, per match. If the teams cannot agree on a map, the Tournament Administrator will pick one.
  • bo3 (Best-Of-3) Matches - Map Vetoes and Picks will follow the following pattern: "ban/ban/pick/pick/ban/ban/last map is 3rd map in series". Vetoes/Picks will be done in-game. Knives for starting sides comes after this process. The team to get first ban will be randomly determined.

  • All games in all tiers and stages will play overtime to completion

  • Break lengths are meant to keep the tournament running smoothly, PLEASE do not go over break limits. The less breaks you can take, the smoother the tournament will run.
  • Please save your breaks for between MATCHES and not INDIVIDUAL GAMES IN A SERIES (such as bo3/bo5 series). If you absolutely must take a break during a series, be sure to inform LANified! Tournament Administration.
  • Captains are required to inform LANified! Tournament Administration that their team is taking a break, and how long the break will be.
  • If your team is found to be grossly late, your team may face disqualification from the tournament, or face match forfeiture, at the discretion of LANified! Tournament Administration.
  • Maximum length of breaks between matches will depend on number of participating teams:
    • 6 or more - Max Break Length 15 Minutes
    • 5 or fewer - Max Break Length 30 Minutes

General rules:
  • All matches will be 5v5. Teams are not allowed to play with an incomplete roster, even if the missing player(s) is/are on a break.
  • MATCHES consist of GAMES, depending on which MATCH format is used. Eg. bo1 (best-of-1) consists of ONE GAME PER MATCH, bo3 (best-of-3) consists of UP TO THREE GAMES PER MATCH.
  • Teams consist of 5 players, no ringers, no bots, no coaches, no roster changes, no exceptions.
  • All teams must declare only one Captain, who will represent and co-ordinate the team with LANified! Tournament Administration & others.
  • Only team captains can report results. Both team captains must report match results.
  • All matches will only be played on LANified! assigned servers.
  • Any match at any time during the tournament may be selected for broadcast. If your match is selected for broadcast, this may involve coordination with LANified! NETworks Production staff. Please comply with their instructions to ensure broadcasting and spectating operates smoothly.
  • Third-party textures/models/sounds are not allowed.
  • Teams considered to be a poor sport, at the discretion of LANified! Tournament Administration, will be warned once. If they continue to be poor sports, their entire team will be disqualified from the tournament without refund.
  • Cheating in a tournament will result in immediate expulsion of the entire team from the event without refund. DO NOT CHEAT, NO EXCEPTIONS.
