No show

If a participant is not ready to play 15 minutes after both participants have been matched on the bracket, tournament staff have the right to disqualify that team.


In the case that a player(s) disconnects, the team is allowed to continue to play the match at a disadvantage.


Participants can choose to forfeit a match if they wish. Forfeiting will result in loss of the match and possible penalty points.


A rehost can only be played with prior admin approval. In a re-hosted game each participant must choose the same side as they picked at the start of the original match. Disconnects and lag issues will only qualify for a re-host if the issue occurs the within the first 60 seconds of the game.


Observers are allowed only if both teams agree. Exceptions to this rule are, tournament staff and people who are given permission by an admin (e.g. shoutcasters or streamer). Under no conditions are teams allowed to play with referees other than official AniRevo referees.
