Every tournament game will be played on maps from the tournament map pool only. If the players are required to create the game for themselves, both players have to check that the game is played on the right map and on the correct version of the map. If neither of the players complains about the map version in the first 5 minutes of the game, the game will be played on the selected map unless an admin decides otherwise.

No abuse of game breaking bugs is allowed in any tournament match. Normal mechanics that can be considered bug ­like are naturally allowed (such as mineral walk, pylon walk). If you are unsure about some mechanics, ask an administrator

No excessive chatting is allowed in the game. If the need to chat occurs the players must be straight to the point and polite. Ideally the only chat in each game will be at startup and when a player surrenders the game.

No chat is ever permitted from a player to an outside party during a tournament match, or from an outside party to the player, unless the outside party is an administrator. Typing "gg" after 30 seconds means surrendering. If you type it the game might be considered forfeit even if you wish to continue playing.


Draws & Stalemates

If a player deliberately plays for a stalemate, admins hold the right to decide the outcome of the game.

If there is a natural stalemate the game will be replayed.



  • Should a player be late (15 minutes) for the start of a tournament match, the player will forfeit the first game of the match.
  • Should the player be more than 30 minutes late for the start of a tournament match, the player will forfeit the whole match.
  • The players are allowed a 5 minute break between the games in a tournament match.

Administrators reserve the right to change these timings if circumstances require it.

Players must not start a match before schedule time without admin permission.



Players will need to submit this form to ask for specific permission to stream from the event. 

Streaming is a key part of our events and our participants' / teams' own content and is something that we wish to encourage, however it's also important that any streams of our esports tournament do not compromise the competitive integrity of the event and also, in the case of some titles, match the standards required by those publishers. 

Note that application for stream permission is intended only for those participating at the event streaming their own perspectives, we do not grant lobby access to spectators who are not at the event. 

In certain cases we may offer increased bandwidth for streams, but this is not guaranteed. 

We also ask that those granted permission to stream share some basic viewership figures with us after the event, these figures will be held confidentially and amalgamated as part of the overall event evaluation which will help existing and future partnership discussions, which in turn will help raise the quality and potential prize pools for the event. Your personal viewing statistics will never be shared. 

Subject to the title being streamed (e.g. BEACON VALORANT for EPIC38) you may be required to use specified graphics packages for the duration of the event. 

If you use the EPIC.LAN logo as part of your coverage, you should follow the guidelines set at https://www.epiclan.co.uk/brand

Note that permission to stream does not imply any sort of official affiliation or coverage partnership with the event. 

You may not stream your games if you are currently featured on the EPIC.LAN main streams. 


Disconnects & Crashes

If a game is interrupted by a computer, network or software failure the game will be resumed using the Recover Game function. The game time is set 5 in­game seconds before the disconnect. Neither player is allowed to view the replay or details page (e.g. build order tab) of the game before it is fully finished.



Please feel free to contact the League Ops Team within the #support in the official EPIC.LAN Discord server.

*These rules are subject to change due to any game-related updates that cause issues to occur in different ways. The game admins and tournament team leaders have discretion to change & update rules within reason at any stage throughout a tournament. The Admins decisions are always final.*
