In order to be eligible for a tournament, you must first have a valid team. Each team must provide a list of at least five players (including the captain), the list can contain up to six players. The team captain’s responsibility to make sure that every member of his team is:
- Tournament eligible
- Residentially eligible (Ontario resident)
- In compliance with the age restriction (16+)
- Only on one team in the tournament
Every player listed in a given team will be considered member regardless of whether or not they have played in a game to date, therefore every player must be eligible at all times. If a player fails to comply with any of the above criteria, the whole team will suffer disqualification.
Adjusting the Team Roster
The team roster is the full list of players on a team enrolled in the tournament. The minimum size of a team roster is five and the maximum is six.
- Adding New Players: A team without a full roster can fill any empty spot before the first round start. New player must not be currently enrolled in the tournament.
- Removing Players: No removing player after the registration phase closed and it will not be possible to kick any player off the roster
Using Substitute Players
A Team may use any of the players on their roster as their starting lineup for each game. Players can only substitute a player from their roster to play in a game that has already been started if there is a game restart under the following conditions:
- Player has hardware difficulties
- Player has technical / electricity difficulties
- Player has internet difficulties
- Under an adjudicator’s discretion
If there is a game restart, all players that started the game must stay on apart from the player or players that suffered the above mentioned problems. If there are any unauthorized changes, adjudicators can disqualify the team.
