1.1 General

  • Every team must read, understand and agree to the rules for participation in the PUBGOnline Showdown Tournament Series. Players must agree and consent to these rules, as well as PUBGOnline’s authority to enforce them, as a condition of their participation. Each player is therefore expected and required to abide by the rules, and any failure to follow them will result in punitive measures. Participation in our matches is considered agreement and consent to our rules.
  • The PUBGOnline administration reserves the exclusive right to decide outside or even against the rulebook in special cases to ensure fair play.

1.2 Conduct

  • All players are asked to behave in a humane way towards other competitors, and to any member of the PUBGOnline staff. If a player is found guilty of misconduct by an administrator, they may receive a penalty. Teams risk bans and expulsions from the PUBGOnline Showdown Tournament Series for any and all misconduct, to be decided at PUBGOnline’s sole discretion.

1.3 Competitive Rules

  • Each player may only use their own account.
  • Each team must have four (4) players present throughout the entire tournament in their assigned Discord channel, regardless of whether the team is currently playing, waiting to play, or otherwise occupied.
  • A fifth slot in a team’s assigned discord channel may be requested for use by that team’s official coach or team manager.
  • If the fifth slot is being used, the coach or manager using the slot must remain muted for the duration of the match until all players of the assigned team are no longer in the match. If this rule is not followed the team will forfeit their fifth slot.
  • Each team must have at least one designated person who is eighteen (18) years of age or older, who shall be responsible for distributing any prizes. This can be the same player as the Team Captain or another person entirely.

All players as a condition of their participation in PUBG Online’s Showdown Series agree to refrain from manipulating game files in any way, using any unapproved game modifications, or any other method by which one may gain an unfair advantage over another player. The definition of cheating will be determined at the exclusive discretion of BattlEye and PUBG Corp., with rare exception when applicable.
  • Using game mechanics that affect the integrity of competitive play is strictly prohibited.
  • This includes, but is not limited to, excessive tanking the blue, healing in the blue for the majority of the game without attempting to enter the circle, to be determined at the sole discretion of the Admins.

If the amount of members in separate teams is even, the series position will stay with the half that includes the captain of the team.
  • If a team no longer has a minimum of two (2) official team members on their roster, that team will no longer retain their series position and a new team will be given their series position.
  • If the team entirely disbands, or majority of the team moves to another team, the remaining solo player might retain the position if prior members individually contact and consent to the solo player retaining the position. This retention of position is solely at an admin’s discretion.
