Settings


  1. The default settings specified in these rules can be changed, but only if an option is available in the challenge. The staff will support no other agreements, (i.e. verbal, AIM, email). So unless specified otherwise in the match details, these default rules will be followed.

  2. We suggest that the Party Privacy be set to Invite Only.

  3. If any of the below settings are incorrect, the hosting team will forfeit the map. The team hosting is solely responsible to ensure all settings are correct prior to beginning any map. If the settings are incorrect, the non-hosting team will not be penalized for leaving the match early. The non-hosting team will be required to obtain valid proof to show that the hosting team did not have the settings correct. A ticket with valid proof must be submitted immediately after the match has been completed.

Matches


  1. All matches must be played in their entirety unless both teams agree to postpone or cancel the match. A Standard Ladder Match will be played best of 3 maps (first to 2) or best of 5 maps (first to 3).

  2. Randomized maps MUST be used. Verbal agreements will not receive staff support.

  3. The higher ranked team at match time will host the first map. The higher ranked team is the team ranked closer to “1” on the ladder. If there is a tie in rank (i.e. both are unranked), the Team ID closest to 0 will host first. The lower ranked team at match time will host the second map. This will alternate for each map until/if a tie breaker map is needed. If a tie breaker map is needed, the lower ranked team will host the final map.
     
  4. The team that is not hosting will pick which side to play on.
     
  5. A "Lag Test" is not required unless the non-hosting team request one be completed. This is a test round that doesn't count and uses the standard game settings that will be used during the match. For the lag test, a map that is not scheduled for play must be used. If the game lags during this test, a new host must be chosen. If both teams cannot agree on an acceptable host, a ticket must be submitted by both teams to cancel the match.
     
  6. Teams may not delay the match for more than 5 minutes between each round/map. A round is defined as a stopping point during the match when match settings may be altered, and/or players may switch sides or change equipment.
     
  7. We highly recommend that all players appear offline during their match. Users are not to dispute a match on purpose if the other team did not appear offline. If random players enter the room, ask them to leave. If they leave immediately without disrupting the match, the match can continue. If the player disrupts the match, the match is to resume from the score at which the player(s) entered.
     
  8. We strongly recommend that you set your Friends List to "Private".
     
  9. If a map results in a tie, the map will be replayed with the same sides and settings.
     
  10. Deliberate and repeated team-killing or committing suicide on purpose during any Kill-Dependent game mode  will  result in a forfeit of the map. If a team is accused of violating this rule, the accuser must provide valid video proof. Complete the match and then report the outcome. If it is a Premium Match, report the scores correctly and then submit a ticket. If it is a Non-Premium Match, you can select the Match Status that says: “I’m reporting: I had an issue and want to dispute”. Then, submit your ticket containing valid proof.
     
  11. Team changing in-game is not allowed. If a player joins the wrong team upon launch, the map will be restarted. Abuse of this rule will result in a lock/ban. If a player changes teams after the first kill, the offending team will forfeit the map.
     
  12. Switching to CODcaster in-game is not allowed. The offending team will forfeit the map.
     
  13. We strongly recommend that game recording be enabled during match play.
     
  14. Teams are responsible for obtaining their own proof during matches and should not rely on theater proof alone. Theater proof is not admissible if the full score board is not shown.
     
  15. Using disabled equipment/weapons/secondarys during a game will result in a forfeit of that map. Using the equipment includes holding it while running or walking and/or placing it on the ground.
  16.  
  17. If there is a lag issue, please finish out the map and show proof in a ticket after the match has been completed.

Disconnection Issues


  1. If a player/host disconnects during the initial launch of a map, the map will be restarted. The initial launch is defined as within the first 30 seconds or before the first kill.

  1. If a player disconnects after the initial launch in a Kill Dependent Gamemode the team that had a player disconnect would forfeit the current map.
  1. If a ladder has a specific rule for disconnection issues that rule would override the rules below.

Host Disconnection Round Based

  • If the hosting team disconnects during a round based game mode (Search & Destroy) the hosting team would forfeit the round. 5 minutes will be given for the host to get back and restart the map. If the host does not rejoin within 5 minutes, another player on the hosting team may start the map and play shorthanded. Failure to start within 5 minutes will result in a forfeit. Please keep note of the round count and play the remaining rounds to determine a winner.

Host Disconnection Map Based

  • If the hosting team disconnects during a map based or Domination game mode they would forfeit that map.  

Player Disconnection Round Based

  • If a player disconnects mid map in a round based game mode (Search & Destroy/Domination) the current round will continue. Before the next round the hosting team will end the game or the opponent will leave the map. 5 minutes will be given to allow the player to reconnect. If the player does not reconnect the team may play shorthanded. Failure to be ready within 5 minutes is a forfeit of the map. Please keep note of the round count and play the remaining rounds to determine a winner.

Player Disconnection Map Based

  • If a player disconnects mid map during a map based game mode the map will continue to the end unless the game mode is Kill Dependent (Slayer, Team Deathmatch, Kill Confirmed) then the team whose player disconnected will then forfeit the map. If the map is not kill dependent the player may be reinvited while the map is still in progress unless otherwise specified on the rules page for that arena.

Challenges


  1. When sending and accepting challenges, you MUST select the players who will actually be playing in the match. You will be prompted to do this before sending and accepting any challenges. The number of players you must select is determined by both the match size and the ladder. Therefore, if the match is a 2v2, you will need to select two (2) people. On Team ladders, however, you will have the ability to select up to one (1) additional player. This player may serve as a substitute during the match.
     
  2. The only players eligible to play in the match are the players who are selected when the challenge was sent/accepted. Once a match is confirmed, the eligible players from both Teams will be displayed on the Match page. Players who enter the room, but whom were not selected to play beforehand, will be considered ineligible players.
     
  3. If you need to cancel an already accepted match, you must first select the match you wish to cancel and hit the "Request Cancellation" button. Fill out the required field to notify your opponent that you wish to cancel, and then submit the request. Your opponent will then either accept or decline the request. If the cancellation request is not accepted by your opponent, you will be required to play the match. Your opponent will have 72 hours to respond to this request. If the request is not accepted or declined within 72 hours, the match will be automatically cancelled.

Reporting


  1. Both teams are responsible for reporting the match within 30 minutes of its completion. If teams do not report matching results, the match will result in a ‘dispute’. Both teams are then required to submit a ticket regarding the dispute and include any valid proof they have. If you had a problem with the match, please select the Report Problem option and pick the option that best fits the outcome of your match. Then, you can submit a ticket containing your valid proof.
     
  2. Premium Matches: If you encountered an issue and there is no Report Problem that applies, report the match as a win for the team that won the number of rounds/maps needed to win a match. Then, you can submit a ticket containing your valid proof. If your claims are found to be valid with proof, a staff member has the ability to revert/finalize the outcome of the match. 
     
  3. Non-Premium Matches: Select the appropriate option under Report Problem and follow the instructions on the Match Report screen. 
     
  4. Falsifying match scores may result in a penalty. Do not dispute a match you lost legitimately. Disputing on purpose is defined as knowingly reporting that you won a match despite the outcome of the match resulting in a loss for your team.  
     
  5. Teams that have 5 or more disputed matches will be automatically locked and unable to play additional matches. The team will not be unlocked until they have less than 5 disputed matches. To resolve disputes, please see rule number 1 above.
     
  6. Matches that go unreported by one team will be reported automatically for the team that did report. Matches that go unreported by both teams will be deleted automatically.
     
  7. Teams who report matches before the match has concluded are subject to penalties.

  2. Do not dispute on purpose or you risk being penalized. Disputing on purpose is defined as knowingly reporting that you won a match despite the outcome of the match resulting in a loss for your team.  

  3. If you have a problem with your Non-Premium Match, please select the Report Problem option and pick the one that best fits the outcome of your match. This will put the match in disputed status.

  4. To help resolve the dispute, you must immediately submit a ticket about the issue. Your ticket must be submitted within 3 hours of the scheduled match time because the match will become visible to the community after that time. They'll need to be able to read your ticket to help determine the outcome for the match. Be sure to include as much detail as possible to help the community understand the problem.

  5. Your ticket must include valid proof to support your claim. Proof needs to clearly show the entire scoreboard so that we can see all players involved. It must also adequately support your claim by showing the problem you encountered. 

  6. All proof submitted in your ticket needs to be from the match in question. If you submit proof from the wrong match/game or links to inappropriate material, you risk being penalized. 

  7. Community members can access the CMRS at the top navigation bar by clicking on “Match Resolution”. Matches will be randomly generated for you to judge.
     
  8. Be sure to evaluate the matches carefully. Always examine the Team Stats, Team Information, Match Details, and any information provided in the Tickets section.
     
  9. If you find that you cannot decide a winner based on the proof provided, you can select the “Skip This Match” option and another match will be generated for you.

Penalties


Major League Gaming takes cheating very seriously. Included below is a list of our penalties. All MLG users are subject to these penalties.

As a reminder, Leaders are ultimately responsible for the actions of their team's members. Should a member submit inappropriate content or a Captain dispute a match, the Leader will be held accountable for that action as well. If you are not comfortable with this responsibility, we suggest you transfer leadership to someone who is.
