Following with BlueHole’s Rules of Conduct, we expect players to abide by the following rules and consequences:
- Cheating in any form is a bannable offense, and will result in a ban from any future Alpha Nerds Guild community event, as well as a report to BlueHole via their forums. No questions asked.
- As the games will be streamed, even though there may be a delay, stream sniping is not allowed. Players that are in-play may not watch a stream hosted by Alpha Nerds Guild or anyone competing in the tournament. Only when dead may players watch streams. Failure to comply will result in an instant disqualification and a report to BlueHole via their forums.
- Collusion or teaming of any kind is a permanent disqualification for all members at fault and will also result in a report to BlueHole via their forums with video proof.
- Players must be in the Alpha Nerds Guild Discord, in their specified channels, during matches. Player not in the discord will forfeit the match.
- The mod team will be in charge of assigning server roles to create designated access in specific channels.
- Players not participating in the current game are prohibited from entering the voice channels of a live match.
- If Discord starts to experience connection issues, please be ready to switch to in-game voice chat at any moment. You cannot switch to your own Discord servers at any point during a live match.
- Players that disconnect from a match or custom game lobby are able to rejoin the server if able. The server will not be restarted for people who disconnect. Crashes are considered on a case-by-case basis.
- Multiple players crashing while in the plane would be a reason to restart a game.
- Per ESL PGI guidelines, it is strongly encouraged to not move your character while in the warm-up phase before the game begins.
- This could help minimize game crashes.
- Warning, PUBG has updated the FAQ on their forums to say that editing config files is against the Rules of Conduct, which could result in a ban. Edit the config files at your own risk.
- Signup Process
- Before signing up, players need to make sure they have already joined Alpha Nerds Guild Discord so they can be given a server role to gain access into Tournament channels.
- Announcement of the finalized roster will take place 24 hours after sign-ups close
- Again, all signed-up players MUST be in Alpha nerds Guild Discord to confirm entry into the tournament
