Tournament format

• Weekly tournaments starting each Saturday at 18 CET
• Single Elimination - 32 teams
• Stopwatch mode based on the final map completion time or furthest objective reached. If both teams get stuck on the same objective/checkpoint then play the "next" map in the pool.
• All matches are Bo3, except for the final, which is a Bo5

Registration:

• Team captains need to create a team and invite the other members in order to register themselves for the tournament. Team members then need to accept the invitation to the team.
• When registering for the tournament team members once again need to accept. While doing so, they must supply their Battle.net tag.
• All players must have their correct Battle.net tags entered as their Overwatch EU Battletag
• After registering you may change one or more players as long as the tournament has not begun. You need to add the replacement player(s) to your team (and he/she needs to accept) before you can add him/her to the tournament registration.
• Teams are also required to check in before the tournaments start - any team failing to check in will be replaced automatically by a team in the Reserve list
• Reserves must also check in to be eligable as replacements
• Check-in starts three hours prior to the commencement of a tournament

Communication:

• All team captains are required to join https://discord.gg/0fOZnUZUrf5yjiS2 - the GosuGamers Discord server - where you can contact admins and players alike regarding the matches. Members of teams can also file a support ticket at the match page or as a last resort in the comment section on the match page.
• Registered players can find the opponent captain's Battle.tag on the match page which allows direct contact in regards to hosting details.
• If participating teams are unable to contact their opponent and 15 minutes passed from the scheduled starting time or if the opposing team is unable to present their six players into the game, it will result in a default win for the team that is fully ready to play - in case of a walkover notify an admin.
