General Tournament Rules [Updated August 19] Teams cannot purposely suicide in order to secure 1st Place after winning a round. A point will be deducted from your team for each instance of this happening. If you have zero points, your opponent will be given a point instead. Please refrain from hitting any players before referees suicide and state "BEGIN". First Offense: Warning & Match will be re-done (starting back at lobby). Subsequent Offenses: Disqualification from the tournament Players cannot leave a room once they enter and after a match, except when they meet the conditions specified in "Tournament Rules" under "[CONDITION]". Keep flaming and trash talk to a minimum. Tilt tactics will not be tolerated under official tournaments. In-game name changes after you have signed up will forfeit any prizes or qualification into the tournament. Cheating in any form will result in automatic disqualification and removal of your prizes on your account, and in some instances may result in a ban. Cheating is, but not limited to: glitching any form of hacking having another player log into your account to play for you using hacked or exploited item sets or stats. Tournament participants MUST respect all referees & staff members that are running the tournament. This applies to megaphone messages and Discord, as well. Any unnecessary and inappropriate behavior or language aimed towards the moderators will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis. Offenses will be dealt with as followed: First offense: A formal warning to cease reported issue(s) Second offense: Disqualification from tournament and removal of prizes (tiered and/or participation) & 30 Day Account Ban Subsequent offenses: Ban Duration Increased Absence and Disconnection Clause: In the case that a player(s) is absent from their allotted match time without any prior notice, the player(s) will be automatically disqualified from the tournament after a 10 minute grace period. Disconnections caused in the lobby, loading screen, and/or scoreboard will not result in any penalties and the referee will inform participants to suicide for a match re-do. However, disconnections during the match(es) will not warrant any re-dos, and will proceed normally. If a disconnection is caused in the above stated scenarios, the player(s) will have 5 minutes to return to their match. After this time, if the player did not return, the match will proceed. Lag Clause: Lag will be monitored based on what the referee(s) see on their screen and will be up to that referee(s) on what course of action will be taken. As some players may be in an assortment of different locations around the world, some lag is bound to occur. If any game breaking lag occurs from a participant, such as god-mode for more than 6 seconds straight or is immune to a game changing scenario (panic attack, except when panic breaking is performed), the match will be omitted and the player will be given an opportunity to resolve such issue. If the issue cannot be resolved, the player will be asked to leave the room and they will be unable to continue further. Rescheduling & Match Postponement: We will not under any circumstances allow for rescheduling of any matches unless there is a valid reasoning, and both parties (teams) and moderators agree. Ruling Modifications: At any time, at the sole discretion of RedFox Games, it's staff members & community advisors/referees - we reserve the right to make modifications to the rules if need be. If any changes are made, we must notify all participants of such changes at a minimum of 24 hours before the next day of matches.
