SIDE SELECTION

In SLCG 2017, side selection will be decided by a coin toss.

NUMBER OF MAPS

In SLCG 2017, only one map will be played and that map will be decided by the removing of maps from the pool of 5 official maps until only one map remains. Each team gets to remove two maps from the pool.

In SLCG 2017, a coin toss will decide who removes the first map (Loser of the coin toss removes the first map so the winner gets the chance to remove the last map from the remaining two maps).

CALLING A WIN

First to reach 13 rounds wins the match.

TIE BREAKER

If both teams have an equal number of map wins(or rounds) at the end of two maps(or one map) played, a tie breaker map will be played where the winner of that map will win the match.

In SLCG 2017, both the map and the side selection decided by two coin tosses.

If the first tie breaker ends up as a draw same map will be played and sides will be changed (e.g.: first tie breaker match team who attacked first now have to defend first).

WALKOVERS AND PUNCTUALITY

If a team fails to appear with the minimum number of players required, the team will not be allowed to play and a walkover to the team that is present will be given.

OTHER RULES

Each team member must use the same name that they used to register with and the specific tag to avoid any incidents.

All programs or files, either changed game files or new files, that change the game or add to its functionality, or which interact with the game in any way, are strictly forbidden.

Modified versions of the game’s resource files are always forbidden, regardless of what they do. The use of any forbidden program or file by any team member during a match, leads to a forfeit loss, and could lead to a removal and ban from tournament.
