Penalties and Disputes


Any form of cheating, glitching, abusing in-game mechanics, or unsportsmanlike behavior may result in the forfeit of a map, match, or disqualification from EGLX. Players must not use obscene gestures, language, or offensive comments during tournament activity.


These include:

• Profane words or phrases

Event Rules


1. After a match has ended, players must remain on the Post Game Carnage Report stats screen until station referees have recorded match stats
2. All competitors on mainstage must use a headset. If a player does not have a headset, one will be provided.
3. Tampering with tournament structure or bracket will result in a player and team removal from the tournament
4. Players must play maps and gametypes in the order they are provided by the station referee
5. All loser’s bracket matches will be played as a new match and not as a continuation match.
6. The higher seeded team will play as, “Red Team” and will host the majority of matches in both a best-of-3 and best-of-5 series. Choosing host is done as follows:
• In a Best-of-3 series, the higher seeded team will choose the two games that they     wish to host.
• In a Best-of-5 series, the higher seeded team will choose 1 game they wish to     host. The lower seeded team will then choose 2 games they wish to host. The     higher seeded team will then host the two remaining games.
7. Only station referees and EGLX Officials can determine if a match should be ended prematurely and/ or restarted.
8. After check-in, a team’s roster, including their coach, is considered locked and no members can be replaced or play/coach another team at any point during the tournament.

In-Game Rules


Players are not allowed to go outside the normal boundaries of the map. Tournament Director will determine what qualifies as map boundaries and will make all final calls on map boundaries

In the event of equipment or game failure, the following rules will be used when restarting a game. Tournament director will make all final calls and decisions on match restart. Players should always continue playing unless told otherwise by a tournament official.

•    For Capture the Flag matches and Score Based Game Modes, the exact score will be taken from the time of the interruption. For example, if a team is leading a match 4-0 and there is a match interruption, the match will be replayed with an aggregate or “understood” score of 4-0, rather than a full 0-0 restart.
•    For Team Slayer matches, the exact score will be taken from the time of the interruption. For example, if a team is leading a match 35-30 and there is a match interruption, the match will be replayed with an aggregate or “under stood” score of 35-30, rather than a full 0-0 restart.
•    For Stronghold game mode, the match will be replayed with both team scores rounding down to the nearest 5 point increment. For example, if a team is leading 118-62 at the time of interruption, the match will be replayed with an aggregate or “understood” score of 115-60.

In all match replays, the match will be replayed with full time limit, with the aggregate score applied. If a match interruption happens before a team reaches five kills in a Team Slayer match, one capture in a CTF match, or 10 seconds of Hill time, the match replay rules will not be taken into effect, and the match will be restarted from 0-0.


Equipment Rules


1.    Players are required to ensure that their equipment works before a game begins, and restarting a match could result in a forfeit of that game.
2.    Players must not tamper, unplug or interfere with Xbox One consoles, monitors, seating or other equipment provided.
3.    Competitors are responsible for their own belonging during the tournament including controller, bags, clothing, etc.
4.     All custom controllers are subject to approval by tournament officials. Game-altering controllers are not permitted for use during the tournament.
5.     Controllers must be plugged in at all times, and may not contain batteries.
