General competition rules

  • Each competition may have a specific set of rules that complement the general rules.
  • In case of similar or conflicting rules, the specific competition rules always prevail over the general rules.
  • Scheduling and information
    • All information about the competitions will be published and updated on Partynet.
    • Please be on time. Competition schedules to be followed will be published.
  • Matches
    • You must locate your opponent to play a match.
    • A match must not be delayed more than 15 minutes after the scheduled starting time.
      • If your opponent has not showed up during those 15 minutes, you must contact the competition organizer, who will determine what action to take. Usually, this will result in the disqualification of the late player. During the wait time, you must remain on the game server or location.
      • If both opponents/teams are late, the team who proceeds to the next round will be determined via a random draw.
    • Every team will have 30 minutes after each match round to submit the result through Partynet. After this period of time the result will be deemed invalid and the competition will continue.
    • If the results have not been entered after the 30 minute period, the players for that round will be disqualified and, if necessary, a random draw will occur to continue with the competition.
    • If you voluntarily leave a match, you will be considered to forfeit and thus lose it.
