RULES + LOGISTICS

Forfeits and Rescheduling: There are NO FORFEITS in the regular season. All matches are meant to give you league competition to compete with during the season, but mainly to verify eachothers scores. If you are unable to make your scheduled match, please notify your opponents and OeSL as early as possible. Reschedules are allowed, but we encourage teams who are available to play at 8:00pm on Tuesday to notify OeSL that their opponent cannot play – and that you would like for us to pair you with someone else.

 

SUBSTITUTIONS

Substitutes: Subs are allowed to be made before the start of a week, but not allowed mid-matchup. If you will be requiring a sub for an upcoming game, other players within the league may not be used as a sub due to conflict. For a player to be eligible for playoffs, they must play in at least 2-full weeks as a substitute and be on official roster. Please notify OeSL Admin should there be any issues ahead of time.

We understand that on the rare occasion - One or Two players may not show-up to a game without warning in time for the start of the first round. Which can ruin the experience for everyone. Therefore instead of a forfeit we allow substitutions and players to fill on a team. Please send us their:

  1. NAME
  2. EMAIL
  3. IGN
  4. DISCORD ID

GRACE PERIOD
If a team does not show up to a match at its scheduled time there is a 15 minute GRACE PERIOD. After 15 minutes the teams can either decide to reschedule the match OR the team that has missing members forfeits and takes a LOSS. Please submit a screenshot of the lobby of the match verifying that all team members are either present or absent.  

SABOTAGE 
Sabotaging is NOT allowed.

When in a OseSL match - DUOs can not interfere with another duos structures or deliberately sabotage the other team.  

IF a sabotage accusation is to be made -  Please provide proof by Video/clips. You can DM the OESL on Discord or email directly to info@OeSL.ca in which case we will investigate the claim and assign penalties if need be.


Penalties:

First Sabotage is a “Yellow Card” - 5 total kills removed

Second Sabotage is a “Red Card” - 10 Total kills removed
