THIS IS A FRIENDLY TOURNAMENT, PLEASE REMEMBER NICKMERCS MAKES THE FINAL DECISIONS
Teams may work together when playing. They also may kill steal, loot steal and follow each other around but are not allowed to Sabotage as described below:
Teams are not allowed to destroy chests the opposing team are actively going for or build a wall that intentionally blocks your opponent from getting loot or a kill.
Intentionally blocking your opponent's shots/travel or loot acquisition when not on a structure built by you or your team is a forfeitable offense if the act is found to be intentional and has a drastic effect on the outcome of the match it is at the admins discretion to forfeit the team.
You can build platforms or walls on your OWN ramps after 3 builds high, if your opponent decides to use your ramp they risk being blocked without forfeit.
Members are not allowed to cause the death, injury, or sabotage of any of their cooperative opponent(s) (co-ponent). A word of advice would be to simply stay away from your opponents.
This can include but is not limited to intentionally destroying/damaging their built structures/cover, making them fall, purposely hitting them with boogie bombs, impulse grenades, or to have caused an interruption of healing/revival.
Shooting at or around your opponent in a manor to draw attention to your opponent will result in a forfeit. This is at the admins discretion if it has a drastic effect on the outcome of the match. Proof of an opponent obviously sabotaging the other team in the defined cases above as well as any actions otherwise directly affecting the outcome of the game in an unsportsmanlike manner can result in a forfeit at admin's discretion. A word of advice would be to simply stay away from your opponents.
We must have clear valid video proof that your opponent sabotaged your match to warrant a forfeit or replay if the proof is not clear we cannot make the call properly. Please note all decisions are the admins discretion.
For sabotage to occur you would have to have a chance to win. For instance, if you are are down 5 kills and there are 4 players remaining you could not possibly win therefore sabotage cannot occur.
Members can still receive kills even when they are down or dead if the kill(s) is registered on the scoreboard within 30 seconds after dying. Winner(s) is based on the total number of kills listed on the scoreboard. If your team did not receive the Victory Royale scoreboard kills registered after the completion of the game (Victory Royale) do not count as these are simply players disconnecting from the server.
A team has 10 seconds to leave the match due to lag after landing and it will be replayed if they are able to provide proof of lag and leaving the match within 10 seconds. If, however in that time you take damage from another player, pick up an item, or your opponent gets a kill/knock the match will stand from that point on. If after this point a member disconnects from the match, the match will not be replayed or cancelled. Enrolling in tournament/wager matches you agree to these terms. Ping is not a valid indicator of lag for us to identify lag we must see in game evidence of that lag like skipping, freezing, rubberbanding etc.
If the team that disconnected is up in kills, it is at the moderator’s discretion if the match is replayed if the admin determines it was a server issue and not the member purposely disconnecting.
If a team experiences an in-game glitch within 30 seconds of all team members touching the ground, all members from your CMG team must leave the game immediately. If you experience an in-game glitch after 30 seconds from all members touching the ground it is the admins discretion if the match is to be replayed or cancelled depending on the seriousness of the glitch, duration and if it drastically affected the outcome of the match. Enrolling in tournament/wager matches you agree to the known glitches and accept the outcome. For tournament matches and live support wager matches, if the team that glitched out at the time of the glitch occurring is up in kills, it is at the admins discretion if the match is replayed.
If you choose to land at Tilted towers you accept all game glitches and lag that occurs there, no cancellations or replays will be issued as this is a known issue with the game and is a risk you choose to take.
CMG and your opponent are also not liable for members that cannot make it to their match on time for ANY reason. It is the sole responsibility of each members to play their match on time. Issues include but not limited to; issues with game updates, server outages, network connection, power outages, online subscription deactivation, or emergencies. For all issues please visit live support located in the support tab of all tournaments. It is the admins discretion to issue a refund or replay.
