Teams who do not have their team checked-in within 15 minutes, and ready to play within 20 minutes at the designated start time will be dropped from the tournament.

Each lobby must save these settings for their respective mode:
- Custom Game
No other spectators are allowed in lobby unless both sides agree upon it or it is being streamed by a verified user (established by admins).
Host of lobby will be decided by coinflip, and switches each map thereafter. Use tools online to do so ie. http://cointossr.com/
Team A is higher seeded team (on the top side of bracket/cells. Lower your number the higher your seed).
• Game 1: Team A picks map, Team B picks side
• Game 2: Team B picks map (cannot repeat Game 1 map), Team A picks side
• Game 3: Remaining Map is played; the sides on the last map are determined by the winner of a knife round*.
*A knife round is a single round where players can not buy/use any weapons or abilities other than their knife. Teams will fight until one team loses all of their players or a bomb has gone off. In the event that the timer expires before either of these win scenarios occur, the team with the most players still alive will win the round. To set up knife round, follow the steps below:
- Players load into the lobby and launch the third Map (just as they normally would)
- Players are prohibited to purchase any equipment, or use any abilities (except for their knife).
- Teams fight in the first round using only their knife until 1 team is victorious (Win condition: eliminating entire opposing team, or if time expires, the team with the most players still alive)
- All players leave the game using the upper left hand corner menu selection option.
- Players rejoin the lobby and the knife round winner choses side for Map 3.
Players will be responsible for reporting scores to tournament admins online on the Andbox Discord.
Teams are capped at 5 players.
Teams are encouraged to seek club & school support in order to broadcast and stream their matches, or stream your personal POV. Streams must have delay of at least three minutes of delay. Blood turned off if you are streaming.
Players, coaching staff, and all parties involved are expected to hold a professional attitude in their manners, play, and interactions with other teams. The exploitation of unintended bugs is off limits. Failure to do so will result in disqualification from tournament if admins deem necessary.
