Game Mode
Execution
Fill with Bots: Off
Rounds To Win: 3
Round Time Limit: 4 minutes
Friendly Fire: On
Weapon Respawn: After Pick Up
Weapon Tuning: Competitive

Starting Loadout
Lancer
Gnasher
Snub Pistol

Each team is only allowed one iteration of any character on the team at one time irrespective of character skin. For example, “Vintage Kait” is the same as “Armored Kait”.


Weapon Substitutions
None

Game Play
All matches for this competition are expected to be played at the scheduled match time listed.
After losing a match in a winners bracket, that team will be put into the losers bracket. Once a team loses in the Losers Bracket, that team will be eliminated from the competition.

Matches may not be rescheduled.

All teams/players have a 10 minute grace period from the match scheduled time to show up and play their match.

Teams may not play shorthanded.

No warm-up or practice Games are permitted once the first tournament match has begun. If a match is played before the scheduled time, it will not be considered a warm-up and will count as the official scores.

Third party communication is allowed for this tournament in person only.

Players not on any of the teams' rosters should not be allowed into the private match lobby at any time. If a player not listed on a team's roster joins the match and disrupts the game play or does not leave in a timely manner, the host should end the game.

If a player lags out during the first 30 second or before the first kill the map or round, the game should be ended and restarted for all game modes.

If a player lags out after the first 30 seconds and/or after the first kill, the match must continue.
For Execution, the current round must be completed.

Weapon sliding and wall bouncing are permitted in this competition.

Any form of cheating, glitching, abusing in-game mechanics, unsportsmanlike behavior, or use of restricted items is forbidden. These offenses are subject to forfeiture.

Hosting
Hosting refers to the team that creates a Private match lobby. The team “hosts” the Map by creating the Private match lobby and creating the custom game in accordance with the rules.

In a best of 3, the higher seeded team must host the first Map. The lower seeded team must choose sides on the first Map. Then, the lower seeded team must host the second Map. The higher seeded team must choose sides on the second Map. This will alternate until a tie breaker is required. The team with the highest overall score will host the tiebreaker map.

All players must agree that the Host is reasonable before the start of a Map. If a reasonable Host cannot be found, the tournament director will choose a Host.

We highly suggest that a lag test be performed before the start of each map. If a lag test is not performed, it will be implied that all players agree the host is acceptable to play on.

Once gameplay has begun, the host may not end the game. The only exception is if a player lags out/loses connection to the server or if an outside player joins and disrupts the match.

I have a few questions. Is it first to win 3 rounds in an execution and then best of 3 maps or is it just first to win 3 rounds on a single map?

Also, if we have an Elite controller can we bring it and use it?

I was told to ask the tournament director these questions. So if you are out there Paske I would love an answer. Thanks.

Hello!

You may bring your Controller but it will need to be inspected by the Tournament Director, also be sure to keep a close watch on your items that you bring into the event with you. CGS and its staff are not responsible for lost or stolen property.

Also I will get the answers for you about the matches/maps.

Thank You

We need to know what maps we are playing. Does our tournament director come on here?

Hey! Yes all the tournament directors check their forums, but it has been all hands on deck to get every room set up for the event.

I will try to see if I can get those maps for you! Apologies for the inconvenience.

Thank You
