Alternatively, you can also use the CyberGamer Support System here.

1.2 CyberGamer Anti-Cheat Policy
The purpose of the CyberGamer Anti-Cheat Policy is to provide guidelines for infringements which require a match ban as a part of their penalty. All players must adhere to the CyberGamer Anti-Cheat Policy when competing in any CyberGamer competition. The complete Anti-Cheat Policy can be found here.

4 - Team Requirements

4.1 Team Activation
Upon creating a competition team you are required to have a minimum of 5 players invited to and in acceptance of the invitation to join the team, in order to activate the team before you are able to begin a challenge. Once the minimum number of players has been fulfilled you are then able to interchange the roster at team discretion.

4.2 Team Roster
Each team must have a minimum number of players on their roster in order to compete in a competition. The minimum number of players required to register is 5. A player will not compete on behalf of a team if they are not on the team roster. In CyberGamer BO4 ladders and leagues, you are required to maintain a minimum of 3 core members from your starting lineup to keep your wins and elo.

4.3 Team Captains
Each team must nominate at least one player to undertake the responsibility of team captain. The team captain is responsible for accepting and scheduling matches, adding and removing players from the roster, ensuring match scores are submitted correctly and lodging disputes if deemed necessary.

The team captain has an obligation to the other members on the team to behave professionally and represent the team in a sportsmanlike manner. The team captain is responsible for his teams behaviour during CyberGamer and is thus accountable for any outcomes thereof.

By default, the founding member of the team will be set to captain and can delegate further duties as seen fit.

4.4 Team Name
CyberGamer team names containing any of the following will not be tolerated: profanity, racism, sexism, drug use, silly or too big in size. Refusing to change a team name or repeat use of an inappropriate name will result in punishment. CyberGamer teams may not use the name of a team in which is not theirs (as interpreted by CyberGamer staff and administration).

4.5 Team Inactivity
The CyberGamer system will automatically remove teams from the competition if they are identified as inactive. A team will be deemed inactive if there is no longer the minimum required of players in the team to compete.

If a team is identified as inactive the team captain will be notified via the CyberGamer Private Messaging system prior to team removal.

5 - Match Information

5.1 Match Scheduling
Match dates and times are auto selected by the system based on the times and dates that the team's have submitted through the CyberGamer Match system. Once a match has been scheduled, the time and date may be changed to suit the preference and circumstance of the two teams however to do so it must be agreed upon (and confirmed in writing on the challenge page) by the team captain of both sides.

All teams/players have a 15 minute period from the match scheduled time (or unless agreed otherwise) to show up and play their match. If a team does not show up by the end of this period, teams must enter the scores as 1-0 to the team who showed in the CyberGamer match system.

Teams have 5 minutes between each map/game mode. If a team/player goes over this period, please follow the above steps for support.

5.2 Map Selections & Rotations
The Map(s) for this competition will be decided by veto in the CyberGamer match system and will be visible on the match page. Captains are to take turns to veto their maps, beginning with Hardpoint maps, then Search and Destroy Maps, then Control maps until one map for each mode are remaining.

Players are required to play the specific maps listed for each round. Verbal agreements to play different maps and/or game types will not be honoured by Admins.

On occasion, the veto system may malfunction. If this is the case it is the responsibility of the team captains to notify an administrator via the CyberGamer Support System.

Unless otherwise specified, series will be the following:
Best of 3 series will use the following game mode rotation: Hardpoint - Search and Destroy - Control
Best of 5 series will use the following game mode rotation: Hardpoint - Search and Destroy - Control - Hardpoint - Search and Destroy

5.3 Match Punctuality
All teams/players have a 15 minute period from the match scheduled time to show up and play their match. If a team does not show up by the end of this period, teams must enter the scores as 1-0 to the team who showed in the CyberGamer match system.

Teams have 5 minutes between each map. If a team/player goes over this period, please follow the above steps for support.

5.4 Standings
The team Standings are done in ascending order. Standing one (1) is the highest standing (i.e. standing ten (10) is a higher standing than twenty (20)).

5.5 Hosting & Spawn Choice
All Host Choices must be made prior to the start of a Match in the match chat.

In a best of 3 series, The higher seeded team will host maps 1 and 3. The lower seeded team will host map 2.
In a best of 5 series, The higher seeded team will host maps 1, 3 and 5. The lower seeded team will host map 2 and 4.

Hosting Players should create the Private Match. As the hosting Team changes over the course of a Match, the new hosting Player should leave the Private Match and create a new one. If, after the start of a Game, Host is transferred to a Player who wasn't designated to be the Game's Host, the Game must still be played.

We highly suggest that a lag test be performed before the start of each map. If a lag test is not performed, it will be implied that all players agree the host is acceptable to play on.

If a player's connection to the Host becomes unreasonable during a game, the Game must still be played. After each Game, either Team may request that a new Host be tested, if the previous Host was unreasonable.

If the Host incorrectly ends a Game, their Team may Forfeit the Game.

5.6 Ruleset
It is the responsibility of the match host to ensure that the correct ruleset is loaded for the match. In the instance that the incorrect ruleset is played the map must be replayed using the correct ruleset. It must be established within the first 60 seconds (respawn) or end of the first round (search and destroy) that the ruleset is incorrect, any incorrect ruleset claim after the map has been played will put the match in dispute and the outcome will be determined at administrator discretion.

5.7 Minimum amount of players
Teams may only play one man down from the number of players who would normally be present on the map. (i.e 4v5). A Team will Forfeit the Match if they don't have the minimum required players present by 15 minutes after a Match's default start time. Teams with the minimum required players present may start the Game at the end of the 15 minute start time or 5 minute period between matches, or forfeit the map, for the 5 minute timer to start again. Bots are not permitted in any Game.

5.8 Substitutions
Substitutions are only permitted in the period between maps. Substitutions are not to be made once the map has started. If a player times out then they can not be replaced.

5.9 Connection Issues and Game Restarts
In the scenario that a player is experiencing connection issues and disconnects at any time after the first kill or after the first 30 seconds into the match, the map must continue until completed, The player may reconnect and play the rest of the map. A substitute may not take his place while the map is underway. At the end of the map if the player is yet to rejoin, then player will be given 5 minutes to re-connect.

If a Player disconnects from a Search and Destroy Game, the current Round must be completed. After that Round has been completed, the Game must be ended. It is the responsibility of the shorthanded Team to end or leave the Game before the start of the next Round. Rounds that are played while a Team is shorthanded will be counted. After a Game is ended, the shorthanded Team will be given 5 minutes for their teammate to return before they must start another Round shorthanded. When the Game resumes, the score will be as it was when the Game was ended and the Teams will be set to resume the Game from proper sides.

After the map if the player is unable to reconnect after 5 minutes has passed, the team may continue with an eligible substitute player or must play a player down.

Hardpoint - In the case of a server crash or host drop, the Game will be restarted from the beginning of the map.
Search and Destroy - In the case of a server crash or host drop, the Game will be restarted with the score of the Map before the crash. The restarted Game will end when one team's total score hits 6.
Control - In the case of a server crash or host drop, the Game will be restarted with the score of the Map before the crash. The restarted Game will end one when team's total score hits 3.

5.10 Tied Matches
If a Game ends in a tie, it must be replayed. When a Game is replayed, the Host is not changed. If Overtime is enabled, the Game must get through to overtime before a tie can be declared.

5.11 Spectators
The only spectators permitted to be spectating the match from in the game are CyberGamer staff and administrators. This includes anti-cheat members, livestreamers, recorders and shoutcasters. Additional team members will not be allowed into the lobby unless granted permission and space permits.

5.12 Broadcasting
Players are permitted to broadcast their own point-of-view in matches when an official CyberGamer channel is not broadcasting matches. Check with a referee or admin first.

This is only acceptable if there is a significant time delay (greater than 30 seconds) between real-time and the broadcast.

When broadcasting through a live streaming service or uploading recorded footage to a video sharing site; you cannot have 'CyberGamer' or any abbreviation of it within the title of the media. This may be seen as if you are representing CyberGamer to someone unfamiliar with the site, which you are not. You may only include this information with permission from an administrator.

5.13 3rd Party Communication
All 3rd Party Communication programs and systems (i.e. Teamspeak, Discord) are allowed to be utilised for team communication during matches. It is advised that your team captain is still easily contactable by the opposition (or referee if present) in the case an issue arises.

5.14 Reporting Results
Results must be entered by the team captain of both teams at the conclusion of the match. Results and scores are editable on the challenge page once the match has begun.

At least one member of each Team should take a Screenshot(s) of each Round's/Game's results in case proof is needed for a dispute. Screenshots should contain the Round Score, Players on each Team, and a time stamp.

5.15 Disputes
A dispute should be lodged by the captain on behalf of their team if there is a dispute regarding any issue in the match that is not resolved by the referee (if present). Disputes, depending on the complexity will be managed by either a referee or administrator and may take an extended period of time to resolve.

Disputes lodged should be accompanied with evidence provided in the form of digital video or video screen capture. It is difficult to resolve a dispute without evidence and may
take a longer period of time than usual.

Making false or useless disputes will be dealt with at the discretion of an administrator and repeat offenders will increase the likelihood consequences if seen fit.

6 - Cheating & Exploitation

6.1 Cheating
Cheating is defined as but is not limited to, the use of software/equipment to manipulate another user's connection, 'map hacks', 'wall hacks' or any other form of hacking/glitching content that presents a user with an unfair advantage over the opponent in any game.

If you are unsure if something is classified as cheating or not it is up to you to check with an appropriate referee beforehand.

Any form of cheating is should be reported to CyberGamer staff and administration via the CyberGamer Support System with evidence in the form of digital video, still capture or video screenshot.
