Commitment

It’s very important that if you are taking part and committing to any UFHQ tournaments that you have the time and can give it your full undivided attention to complete all the matches as well as being in contact at all times.

We want to make these tournaments as fun as possible and non-committed players disrupt and waste other players time and Admin efforts.

All players must be connected to the UFHQ chat rooms, with their latest Gamertags / PSN ID available, so you can easily be added to play games.

Rules

This includes, but is not limited to the following: user names, passwords, game tags, email accounts, etc. If another person accesses your account, you may be disqualified from the Cup. This includes giving out your password to allow others to account recover your Xbox or PS4 Gamertag.

It is the responsibility of the player to ensure the Gamertag/PSN ID they use, matches the Gamertag/PSN ID listed on their UFHQ Profile.

Always respect other players and the admins who run it on your behalf.

If your opponent is using a custom formation quit out of the game and remind them that they are only allowed the formations provided.

All players must be in the UFHQ Chat room during the tournament for communication with their opponents & admin.

Your Name/GT/PSN ID will be on the bracket, but you can confirm with your opponent in the chat room so there is no confusion. If any player is unsure please contact admin to double check.

Cut off points will be set for where games have to be completed within a certain period of time, so the tourney can progress. Any games not completed will be defaulted accordingly.

Always check the tourney page info/schedule for that particular tourney & what deadlines have been set in advance.

No show = 2-0 default loss.

If having problems connecting then swap hosts and play it as an away match, but notify Admin.

If during the game it goes out of sync or freezes:

During the first 5 mins, regardless of the score, you start again at 0-0;

Any time after 5 mins, whatever time was left when it went out of sync you replay the game, but only the remaining time which was left (for example it froze on 60 mins and was 4-3 you reconnect and play only 30 mins of the first half at 4-3. Make sure when you reconnect, you both agree on the time to be played and what the current score is).

“Please could both players post results in main chat room and via pm to the admins’ so the results will not be missed & updated ASAP.

“Round / Home GT or PSN ID 2-0 Away GT or PSN ID”

All results must be posted by both players & immediately. If not posted and the result’s not confirmed or updated by Admin your in danger of being defaulted.

If any results have not been updated or there is a score line not quite right please contact Admin.”

Friendly banter is allowed but if it gets out of hand, it’ll be reviewed and the person(s) warned (yellow card/strikes). Any further complaints, the person(s) will be banned or suspended (red card).

Abusive language towards other players within the competition and/or volunteer Staff will not be tolerated in any form. This includes written messages or verbal comments inside and outside of match chat rooms. This may result in disqualification from the competition.

Tournament Admins have the right to use their discretion to over come any problems throughout the tournaments and can remove anyone they feel is disrupting the tournament. We want our tournaments to run smoothly and in good spirits and we hope you do too.

Thank you for taking the time to read the above rules.

The Admins wish you the best of luck and most importantly, have fun!
