SPLATOON 2 (Switch)

I) Team and Player Names

Super FamiCon reserves the right to edit Nicknames and/or URL aliases. Team or player names that are too similar to that of another team or player are subject to be changed by Super FamiCon.

Only registered team members are allowed to play for a team. Playing in any matches with a ringer is prohibited. (See “Ringing/Faking” in the ESL Global Rules) Players and teams must compete under their officially registered Splatoon team names and Nicknames during all official matches.

II) Roster

Team rosters must consist of at least the minimum amount of players required to participate.. Teams are only allowed to play with players on their roster with a registered smash.gg account. All roster changes must be made prior to the start of the tournament. Playing with different players and/or illegal ringers will result in punishment.

III) Fairplay

To keep tournaments as efficient as possible, Super FamiCon reserves the right to disqualify teams. This will only be done in cases where a team purposefully stalls or attempts to block another team. In some scenarios both teams may be affected. Any team found to be using a known exploit will forfeit their game upon the first occurrence of the exploit. If the team is found to use another known exploit for a second time and it is determined to have been done on purpose they will be removed from the event and barred from any future events.

  • The remaining players stopped playing immediately

During the replayed game, players who stay in must use the exact same weapons and gears they used during the original game. If the game is being replayed and the team that requested the replay experiences another disconnect, they are both expected to play the game out. If a second disconnect occurs by a team that has already used it's replay, they can only perform a replay so long as both parties agree to it.

     4.7. Forfeit
