It is the responsibility of all teams to check if your opponent is streaming. If a match is completed and a team was found not to be streaming, the outcome will be handled at the discretion of the admins.
All PC players MUST be streaming their point of view WITH AUDIO ON FOR IN-GAME AND VOICE COMMUNICATION when competing in this tournament and be able to provide their stream link and proof when asked for by their opponents or UMG admins (VODS MUST BE ENABLED).
Players who refuse to stream and/or setup a monitor cam at the request of an admin will be forfeited from the tournament with no refund and will be suspended from the platform.
Players may link their streams on their profile.
Admins reserves the right to request a user to set up a monitor/ hand cam at any point during the tournament. Players who refuse to stream and/or setup a monitor cam at the request of an admin will be forfeited.
Players found hacking/cheating/IP Flooding will be permanently banned from the Firstblood website. All claims need to be provided to tournament support with video proof of the player(s) being accused. Players found competing with hackers/cheaters/booters will be permanently banned from the website.
With all private matches being run through dedicated servers we will not be issuing round replays unless everyone in the lobby was lagging. Proof of lag from more than one member's perspective must be submitted so long as the match is larger than a 1v1 to ensure it is the server lagging and not the individual player's connection.
In the event of the host leaving the game or their game crashing it will crash the dedicated server. If the host crashes the dedicated server after 15 seconds OR after a first blood has been made the hosting team will forfeit the round.
Please see your match details page for information regarding hosting. The team with the total number of rounds won accumulated from maps played within the series will host the last map in the series if there is one. If total rounds won during the series is tied, the higher seeded team (closest to zero) will host the last map within the series.
The team who does not host the map will be given side choice unless otherwise stated.
Using any in game exploit will result in a forfeit of the round or map depending on the severity of the exploit eg:
a. Planting/diffusing through unbroken destructible structures
b. Going to out of bounds "glitch" spots.
