  • Whatever race you register with you MUST play that race every game.
  • If you’re using a off-race to play in a LOWER bracket than your main race, you must meet these requirements.
    • You may not jump more than one league. (Example: Your main race is Masters league, so you can off-race in the Diamond bracket, but may not off-race in the Platinum bracket)

  • Only the current ladder map pool is allowed.
  • Map veto starts with the player with the lower MMR, then the higher MMR player chooses (L, H, L ,H).
  • Map selection works the same as veto. Start with the lower MMR player (If a Bo1 lower has the only selection), then the higher MMR chooses (L, H, L, H).


  • You are NOT allowed to pause the game unless you have a valid reason, examples of this are mouse or keyboard issues.


  •  Our league runs on the NA server, you MUST start there.
  • If you or your opponent want to switch the server for your match it is ok ONLY if you both agree. If you can’t agree the match must be played on NA. After your series you must return to the NA server.
