General epic.LAN Tournament Terms & Conditions

Entry Criteria

Players must be registered with a participant ticket for epic.SEVENTEEN to take part in this tournament. Registration will close by 10pm Thursday 18th February for teams, players must be signed up to the tournament to participate, an event ticket alone does not guarantee tournament entry.

At least one member of the clan must remain in the internal tournament IRC channel throughout the tournament times.

Voice Communication

Either in-game or externally provided voice communications are permitted, such as Ventrilo, TeamSpeak or Mumble. Note that epic.LAN may not be able to provide these dedicated voice comms resources for all of those listed due to licensing restrictions, clans should be prepared to make their own voice communications arrangements. Locally hosted voice communication tools are recommended.

Servers & Scheduling

All players must be ready in the server at least 5 minutes prior to the scheduled start time unless a match is already in play on your server (in which case, speak to a game admin for further instructions). Any team that is not ready by 15 minutes after the scheduled start time will lose a map in a Best of 5 Scenario, this is to enforce that teams play within the schedule the admins set.

If a team does not have at least 2 players in the server 15 minutes after the scheduled match start, they will forfeit and the opposing team will be awarded the win for that match. If only 2 players are present in the server, the match will begin after 15 minutes.

Continued delays will result in the whole match being forfeited.

Acceptable reasons for missing the scheduled start of a match are:

  • Network failure
  • Server failure
  • Power failure
