Rules[edit]

The invitational will run globally, having the following server rules:

NA vs EU = EU | KR vs EU = NA Central | KR vs NA = NA Central

If there are lag issues the players may leave the game and use the "resume play" function from the replay on another server. If a player is not in the game lobby after 15 min of its creation he may be disqualified.

Veto system is AB ABCDE.

In-game chat is allowed but no excess / distracting chat or bad mannered chat. Each participant should be ready and alert from 16:15 CET to he is eliminated or to the end of the event. Map-hacking, stream viewing and other forms of cheating will not be tolerated and will lead to the player being dropped from the event and may exclude him from other Vanguard events as well.
