If a contestant chooses to forfeit a match, they will forfeit any prizes and if possible will be replaced by their opponent in the previous round.
If a controversial situation not described by this rulebook occurs during a match, the team that has spotted it should immediately stop the match and inform the administrator about it. If the team does not stop the match and continues to play, it is seen as an acceptance of the situation. Because of that the team looses all rights to file a protest concerning that situation after the game has ended. Protests must be made immediately, or they may be ignored depending on the circumstances.
Both teams have to take a screenshot at the end of the match, where we can see the correct result and they need to upload it after the match to the vacemedia Discord. If you have a conflict in the match, please open a protest, so the staff team can check the case and take a decision. The decision can also mean that both teams are disqualified, if there is not enough proof for either team to be the clear winner.

To keep the delay during the cup as slightly as possible we reserve the right to disqualify teams from the tournament. This will only be done in cases were a team shows no real effort to get a match done or is even obviously blocking. In hard cases this can even effect both teams.

The match is considered "live" when the first round has started. At least 4 players have to remain and the match has to be played until the Match end and a winner is decided. If this isn't possible due to connection issues, it will be considered as a forfeit in favor for the Team who is able to have all players on the server.
Every Team is allowed to rehost the server once in a match. If problems like this appear again, such as a Player dropping out when the Match has already been rehosted, the Team has to play the Match with the 4 remaining players, to its conclusion. Any abuse of this rule is considered to be deception and will result in penalization, up to and including disqualification of the Team.
If a Team leaves the server without informing the opponent and reaching an agreement with them, the team that left will forfeit that match. Each user is responsible for his/her own Hardware.
In a re-hosted game each player has to choose the same settings as they picked at the start of the the original game.
