Tournament Rules

1.0 PLAYERS AND TEAMS 1.1 INDIVIDUAL ELIGIBILITY 1.1.1- Terms of Service

  • Breaking rules that are deemed against the Nintendo Terms of Use will result in a ban from future Stride events and possible additional punishment from Psyonix. 1.1.2- Age Requirement
  • Players must be 13 years or older to compete and receive prizing. 1.1.3- Registration
  • Only players listed on the official start.gg page are eligible to participate in the event.
  • Players must be in the Stride Esports Discord server to compete. 1.1.4- LAN Requirement
  • A LAN adapter is required for participation in this tournament.
  • In the event of a lag test, both players must provide proof of LAN or confirm that they are playing on a wireless connection.
  • Minimum specifications for a “stable connection” are considered to be a “Ping” under 30 ms and an “Upload Speed” above 10 mb/s.
  • If both players pass the speed test, a moderator will use a program that monitors the Peer2Peer traffic from each player. It can detect packet loss, ping spikes, packets that come in late/out of order, and the estimated distance between each player. This helps us determine where the instability comes from.
  • If there is a vast difference between the player’s internet speeds, it is up to TO’s discretion to determine who is the cause of the lag using these guidelines. 2.0 GENERAL RULES 2.1 STRIDE ESPORTS FORMAT 2.1.1- General Format Upper Bracket:

  • If you believe that you’ve provided your opponent with ample opportunities to play the match, but they are uncooperative and you wish to request a forfeit, please contact a league operator via Discord, either through direct message or in the captains’ channel, BEFORE THE MATCH DEADLINE. A decision will then be made. 2.3 DISQUALIFICATION 2.3.1- Behaviors
  • Stride Esports retains the authority to disqualify teams or players found in violation of our rules and policies. Disqualification may entail removal from the series and the possibility of forfeiting your tournament spot. In instances of players displaying toxic behavior, a preliminary warning will be issued, and the severity of consequences may lead to an immediate ban. We maintain the right to disqualify teams for various reasons, including but not limited to:
  • Toxic Behavior

  • Cheating
  • Hacking/Exploits 2.3.2- Timer
  • The first round of the Winner’s side will have a 10-minute automatic disqualification timer, and all subsequent rounds (including all of the Loser’s Bracket) will have a 5-minute timer. The timer will return to 10 minutes for the first round of Top 64 as well.
  • If your opponent does not show up for 10 minutes after checking in, use the “Call Moderator” function on smash.gg, and a TO will be along to assess the situation. If they are delaying the bracket, they will be disqualified. 2.4 CHEATING AND GLITCHING 2.4.1- Player Abuse and Exploitation
  • In the event of a player exploiting a game vulnerability, a warning will be issued, and potential disqualification may occur, contingent upon the gravity of the offense. However, should the same player exploit another vulnerability after receiving a warning, they will face immediate disqualification. 2.4.2- Notification of Cheating
  • While cheating is often detectable, participants are relied upon to voluntarily report any instances of cheating or suspicious activity. 2.5 STREAMING 2.5.1- Streaming
  • Players have the freedom to livestream the event through their point-of-view, but they must mute their streams during Discord conversations with admins.
