BO5 Rounds - If your team is not ready to play within 15mins of the published start time, the first map will be defaulted. After a further 10mins, the second map will be forfeited.

No Show - If after 15 minutes a team does not show up, default can be claimed by confirming a win into the tournament system and announcing a no-show into the Tournament Discord Channe
