    Complete Rules

    1. Registration
    1a. All members fielded by an individual clan within the team must have been a member of that respective clan for one week.

    2. Scheduling, Attendance, and Score Reporting
    2a. The matches will take place starting at 9 EST. Each clan leader needs to contact/ be contacted by HeightofAbsurdity to check in.
    2b. If a team doesn’t show up within a 10 minute grace period of when the match is scheduled to being, then the match will start with whatever amount of people are there. The opposing team can choose to field less players to match.
    2b.1. If the opposing team chooses to field less players to match, the minimum and maximum amount of individuals that can play on the field at any one time adjusts to suit the format to one third of the format size ±1 (example: if it ends up being a 13v13, one third of 13 = 4.33. 4.33 rounds down to 4. So the minimum = 3 and the maximum = 5)

    • Both parties mutually agree upon a different server
