Rules

Player Eligibility

All players participating in PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (henceforth PUBG) competitions must enter their PUBG game ID. The gameaccount is needed to invite players into a custom match and to check if the correct player is playing. In order to participate in tournaments & ladders by LANFest, you must meet the following requirements:

  • You must be a registered player on the LANFest website.
  • You must have an active PUBG account in good standing and link it to your profile.
  • Squads that are invited are not allowed
  • Other squads from organisations that are invited are not allowed
  • Players from invited teams are not allowed in other teams in the qualifiers If you do not not meet these requirements, you will be deemed ineligible.

Sign-ups will be closed for both qualifiers on Sunday 20th of May at 17:00 MDT. If your team has not signed up before this time you will be unable to participate.

Team and Player Names

Only registered team members are allowed to play for a team. Playing in any matches with a ringer is prohibited. Players and teams must compete under their officially registered PUBG team names and Nicknames during all official matches.

Roster

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

Game version

All players must install the newest version of the game in order to participate in LANFest tournaments. Updates must be installed before the tournament starts, so delays will be at a minimum.

Technical Issues

Teams are responsible for their own technical issues (hardware/internet). Matches will not be rescheduled because of technical issues and matches will be played nevertheless. If the warm-up time in starting island is exceeded, the game goes on, even if the issue is not solved yet.

Disqualification

To keep tournaments as efficient as possible, LANFest reserves the right to disqualify teams. This will only be done in cases where a team purposefully stalls or attempts to block the tournament from starting.

Usage of Reshade, SweetFX, VibranceGUI, and other 3rd party programs that enhance, add, modify, or remove game appearance, color, or files, is strictly prohibited during this event.

You as a player are not allowed to add, modify or remove game files from their intended state. Any such manipulation will result in immediate disqualification.

Intentionally changing your character's angle to look through a texture or object is prohibited.

You are not allowed to set two actions to the same key in key bindings.

If your match is streamed on an official channel any removal of clothes will be punished. You are required to keep your character clothed in these matches.

The intentional use of any bugs, glitches, or errors in the game is strictly forbidden and will be penalised. Any team found to be using any 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. Betting during any LANFest event (by a player, team, or on behalf of anyone associated with the team) is off limits.
