Important game day notes

Make sure your captains and teams are aware of the rules

“7.1 Punctuality

Managers/captains need to check in 10 minutes before the match is scheduled to start on discord. Failure to do so will result in the loss of a ban.

Teams get a five minute grace period to attend their scheduled match and field five players before they receive one of two penalties. If the team is less than ten (10) minutes late to the round, they receive a ban loss. If the team is more than ten (10) minutes late, they receive a game loss penalty.”

This means that any teams that don’t check in on Discord by 4:50pm local time (AEST, ACST, AWST based on which tournament you play) will lose a ban for that game.

This means any teams that don’t have their full team in the lobby before 5:05pm local time lose a ban.

if a team check in late AND don’t get their full team the lobby before 5:05pm local time they lose 2 bans (by meeting both of the above conditions)

This means any team that don’t have their full team in the lobby by 5:11pm local time forfeit the game

What your team needs to do on game day?

Check in – 4:30pm – 4:50 pm local time. Check in by having your teacher or captain say “[team] check in” in the appropriate channel #[state]-check-in

During this time you should also be using the tournament code to get your full team into the game lobby. Your teacher will have access to your tournament code.

Note to teachers – players need to copy paste the tournament code into the game client, so it is preferable if you pass it on in a digital format through email or discord.

Once both teams are in the game lobby make sure both teams are ready and then start the match. You can make sure both teams are ready by asking in the game lobby. Don’t start unless both teams say “Ready”.

If your game is being streamed, do not start until our broadcast team types “start match” in the game lobby.

If your opponent is not ready at 5:05pm local time take a screen shot and let your regional admin know.

If your opponent is not ready at 5:11pm local time take a screen shot and let your regional admin know.

Otherwise feel free to start the game when both teams are ready, even if its before 5:00pm local time. Remember to make sure both teams are ready by asking in the game lobby.

Once the game is over remember to say gg wp =D

If you played through tournament code, results will be collected automatically.

If you did not play through tournament code for some reason, please get the match history link and screen shot the end game lobby and inform the regional admin.

Also please remember player are REQUIRED to own 20 champions to be able to participate (including the 14 free champion rotation.) We recommend purchasing the 14 champions available for 450 blue essence to start off with.
