No cheating/injection of unauthorised third-party programs which artificially assist gameplay (this includes but is not limited to aimbots, triggerbots, wall hacks, etc.)
Pauses can be used for both tactical and technical. Please flag an admin if there is a technical issue. For a tactical pause, you are allowed to call two per match – of two minutes each. Time is reliant on integrity and honesty from both parties.
No stream sniping of any kind.
No toxicity within the chat (banter is acceptable).
Please be ready to veto on time and start the game on time as well – any delays outside of tech issues past five minutes may incur an infraction and penalty.
And as always, the admins are there to assist. We ultimately may make a call at admin’s discretion, however this call will always be done with competitive integrity and fairness in mind.
Captains will be required to allow streamers/admins into the games, if this is a requirement the admin team will advise the captain beforehand.
Infractions and Penalties
Severe infractions (including cheating of any kind) can lead to immediate suspension and forfeiture of your spot, with no entry fees returned.
Minor infractions (delayed start to the game, toxicity, etc) can lead to round penalties within a game. Depending on the severity of the minor infraction, this can lead to multiple rounds. These rounds are applied after a match has completed.
If a team wins a match, however loses in round points after the penalty has been applied, the team with the higher round points will be considered the winner of the match.
Games may be streamed by partners or community members who reach out prior to eot.gg admins – we are happy to keep our games open and for people of the community to cover the matches. The games covered by our community partners are theirs to use for both showreels and content!
We ask that all streamers keep their streams friendly and to ensure toxicity does not occur in their channels, especially in chat.
We will try and assign games to commentators in a fair and balanced manner, and eot.gg will reserve the final say in which games they will be assigning to casters in the case of disputes.
We may also ask streamers for their analytics for the period on where they are covering our games.
