    Tournament Rules

    Rules

    Execution:
    Rounds to Win – best of 3 in early ladder, best of 5 in late ladder
    Round Time Limit – 4
    Bleed-Out Time – 15
    Friendly Fire – On
    Weapon Respawn – After Pickup
    Maps(7): Checkout, Clocktower, Thrashball, Old Town, Cove, Slab and Hotel

    King of the Hill:
    Rounds Score Limit: 210
    Rounds to Win – 1
    Bleed-Out Time – 15
    Friendly Fire – On
    Weapon Respawn – After Pickup
    Maps(4): Dry Dock, Rustlung, Hotel and Trenches

    Default Weapons & Swaps: Starting Weapons – Lancer/Gnasher
    Swaps: Gorgon/Boltok will be swapped for the Snub Pistol on all maps


    Higher seed chooses the first game type to host in the existing preset order and then the lower seed picks the second game type to host. Repeat

    Irrelevant of seeding, the team with the most rounds won during the match will host the tiebreaker map. In the event of a rare tie, flip a coin to decipher. Winner of the last map calls it.

    Team that did not pick the map will pick COG or Locust

    Each team must use different characters and no clones.(Grubkiller Carmine and Rookie Carmine are the same person) Only ONE female Character per Cog team and Locust team.

    In KoTH, “round counts” will work as such: Every 53 seconds earned in the hill is equal to 1 round won. Example: 210 to 123 is the same as a 4 – 2 round count

    Hosting Rules:
    - Best of 3
    1. The team listed on the top of the bracket will host the first map.
    2. Hosting will alternate between teams
    3. For the tiebreaker map, host will be determined by round count. If round count is tied, a coin flip will decide host.
    - Best of 5
    1. Matches will be played on neutral host.
    Equipment Rules
    1. Players may not use a Turbo controller, a Button Macro controller, a Wireless controller, or a Play and Charge Kit. Turbo controllers allow Players to press a button that results in their Character performing a set of actions that would normally require the Player to press the same button multiple times. Button Macro controllers allow Players to press a button that results in their Character performing a set of actions that would normally require the Player to press multiple buttons.
    2. Players may not use a controller that has been modified in such a way that it alters their Character’s abilities and/or in-game mechanics. Players are allowed to make cosmetic changes to their controller. However, the Tournament Director reserves the right to deny the use of any controller suspected of providing an unfair competitive advantage.
    3. Players may not use a Keyboard, Mouse, or Keyboard and Mouse adapter.
    4. Players and Coaches may not use a Wireless headset or a headset that requires an outlet for power.

    General Rules
    1. Any sign of cheating may result in a Forfeit of the Game, disqualification from the Event, and/or a Ban from future events.
    2. Players and Coaches may not intentionally manipulate a button, trigger, bumper, D-Pad, and/or joystick on a teammate’s controller while a Game is in progress. Breaking this rule will result in a Forfeit of the Game.

    4. Players may use any unoccupied USB ports on their Xbox 360.
    5. If a Player/Team fails to report to their Station within 5 minutes of their Match’s announcement (Grace Period), they will Forfeit the 1st Game. If a Team fails to report to their Station within 15 minutes of their Match’s announcement, they will Forfeit the Match. If Teams scheduled to play each other both Forfeit a Game or Match, the higher seeded Team will win the Game or Match. If a Match is announced prior to its scheduled start time, the Grace Period will start at the Match’s scheduled start time.
    6. If a Team fails to report to their Station on-time, resulting in a Forfeit of a Game(s), the opposing Team will choose whether the Forfeited Game(s) will be counted as their host or their opponent’s.
    7. Players may ask their Referee for permission to leave their Station if their Match has not been completed. Referees may set a time limit by the end of which the Player must return to their Station or they may deny the Player’s request. Teams may Forfeit a Game(s), or be forced to play a Game(s) shorthanded, if a Player(s) hasn’t returned by the end of their Referee’s set time limit. Teams may Forfeit a Game(s), or be forced to play a Game(s) shorthanded, if a Player(s) leaves their Station without their Referee’s permission, or is otherwise unable to play.
    8. Teams may ask their Tournament Director for an extended break between Matches. The Tournament Director may set a time limit by the end of which the Team must report to their upcoming Match’s Station or they may also deny the Team’s request. Teams may Forfeit a Game(s), or be forced to play a Game(s) shorthanded, if they haven’t reported to their upcoming Match’s Station by the end of their Tournament Director’s set time limit.
    9. In order to dispute Game results, Players/Teams must notify their Referee that they would like to Protest the Game before a new Game has begun.

    1. No going outside the normal boundaries of a Map.
    2. No quitting out of a Game.
    3. Players and Coaches may not look at an opposing Player’s Monitor or projected screen during a Game.

    6. Teams that incorrectly end a Game, without a Tournament Official’s permission, will Forfeit the Game.

    I wish people did a tournament just for fun. No complicated prizes just getting together and experiencing what a video game is designed to do.

    That is called inviting friends over and having a small LAN in your basement.. Tournaments are meant to be competitive, and are only truly competitive when something of value is on the line.

Apparently you can report spam and spam is frowned upon but here EPIC are, rewarding the spammers.

    Reading the rules about controllers, is this a BYOC event or will there be controllers there for use?
    Q: How will the new Carmine die this time?
    A: Chainsaw, it's gotta happen sooner or later.
