P.S. In the stages Quarterfinals and higher: Please inform tournament management before Sunday, If you and your teammates aren't available for the specified period of time,please let the captain inform the tournament manager in advance.
Reschedules will only be considered if both teams agree to a time at least 24 hours before the first match in that particular stage.
Captains are responsible for their teams availability. The bigger team size exists to ensure every team can provide at least two players for each match. If teams can not provide two players for a match and exceede the waiting time, the match will be considered forfeited.
