Rules

Winning a match

A team is declared the winner when the enemy team's nexus is destroyed or when the enemy team surrenders.

Disconnects

  • If a player disconnects during champion select, the pick/ban phase will NOT be restarted unless BOTH teams agree to it. Once the player is back in the game again, a team may call for a restart in order to configure runes.
  • If a player disconnects during the game, he must return as fast as he can. A team can pause the game for 5 minutes without consulting the admins.
  • If multiple players from both teams suffer from continuous disconnections due to server instability, consult the admins at the admin table.
  • If the game crashes due to server instability, consult the admins at the admin table.

Restarting the game

During the qualification rounds, restarting the game is ONLY allowed before the 01:30 minute mark if, and only if, first blood hasn't occurred. A team is only allowed to restart the game once.

Pausing the game

  • Each team can pause the game for a total of 5 minutes without consulting the admins.
  • Before unpausing a game, both teams must confirm that they are ready in the game chat. If a game for some reason needs to be restarted after picks/bans has been decided, use "Blind Pick" game type in order to save time – both teams must use the same champions and runes they chose in the pick/ban phase.

Team Management

  • A team consists of 5 players and up to 2 reserve players
  • A player may only be the member of ONE team in this tournament.
  • Changing players after the pick/ban phase has started is ONLY allowed if BOTH teams agree.

Spectators

  • Spectators are not allowed.
  • Admins can choose to spectate any given game and cannot be refused to spectate by a team.
  • People that are explicitly allowed to spectate by an admin (such as casters and referees) cannot be refused to spectate.

Unfair play

The following actions are considered unfair play.

  • The use of cheat programs/hacks or any third-party program that gives the player and advantage over his peers.
  • Intentionally disconnecting from the game.
  • Playing on someone else's account.
  • The use of any settings exceeding the standard settings.

Any unnecessary chatting during the match

Unnecessary chatting is specified as any type of communication that is not described below:

  • Greetings between players (Hello, gl, hf, gg, etc...).
  • A signal for loss (gg, wp).
  • Friendly chatting between players that is not considered unsportsmanlike behavior.
  • Relevant messages for the referee.

Before the match

Through the official results and fixture list, it is possible to see when to play. The announced times for matches have to be respected and the administrators maintain the right to forfeit teams that turn up late to a game. Make sure to always be prepared and ahead of schedule. Warm-up must be done PRIOR to the scheduled start of the match.

A minimum of 4 players is required to play a match. With 3 players or less, a team will forfeit the match in question.

Delay

At this event, we would like to ensure that the delay in the tournament schedule will be kept at a minimum. Any carelessness by teams and/or players which results in the delay of games will not be tolerated. The following rules will therefore be applied to all games and matches played at Copenhagen Games:

  1. All matches must start no later than 15 minutes after the announced starting time.
  2. The game administration must be informed if your team needs additional time before starting the match. The game administration can decide whether the reason is valid and if your team can get the match postponed. Any delays that are not agreed by the administrators are regarded as illegal and can be punished in compliance with.
  3. The game administration has the following sanctions if any team violates 1 and 2.

If only one player is missing on any team, irrelevant of the team's disadvantage, the administrators may force a game start.

Your team will get a forfeit loss if it is short by more than one player at the starting time.

The match will be decided by coin toss if both teams are missing more than one player.

No pause is allowed while waiting for the player to connect to the server.

Behavior

We always expect every participant to behave professionally and with a sportsman-like conduct. Matches lost on purpose, illegal use of pause during a match and verbal or any other abuse of an opponent may result in warnings or disqualification from the tournament. Poor behavior during or after the event may result in a ban from future events. We expect all players to behave in an exemplary manner and show understanding and patience towards their opponents as well as the administrators.

The player

  • A player may ONLY play matches for ONE team in the League of Legends tournament.
  • A player MUST be signed up for the event and have paid the entrance-fee to play.
  • A player MUST use the registered in-game nickname in the tournament matches.
  • All players MUST have read and understood the regulations that apply to the tournament.

Breaking the rules

If you are uncertain about any rules, contact admins at the admin table before proceeding. If a team breaks the ruleset they may, at the discretion of the admins, be disqualified from the tournament. Admins can make minor adjustments to rules during tournament (for example, allow pauses, delay the match start etc.), and each decision is ultimately up to the admins.
