What If...?

  • If a team cannot field five eligible players for a match, they will forfeit the match, receive a 0 spirit ranking, and captains will face an eligibility review for future seasons.
  • If a team has fewer than five rostered players available for a match, they must accept any free-agent substitute available to play for them. If more free-agent substitutes are available than necessary players, the team can choose which plays for them.

  • If players disconnect or freeze, the opposing captain can decide whether to allow a round reset or not.
  • If a free agent substitute begins a match, they are required to be available to that team for the duration of the match. If they leave without their captain's permission, they will face an eligibility review.
  • If a team captain feels a free agent substitute is intentionally sabotaging the team, they can remove the player from the team mid-match.
  • If a rostered player attempts to play for a team other than their own, that player is immediately suspended for the remainder of the season and will face an eligibility review for the next season.
