1.1. No show


If a player or team is not present 5 minutes after the match date, the opponent will automatically be given a win. If teams are short players they may proceed to play with what players they have present.


1.2. Adding new players


One new player is allowed to join your team during the RFL and is allowed to play starting with the next match.


1.3. Substitutes


All teams will be allowed to add one substitute to their teams roster. It must be made clear that the substitute will be playing prior to the match starting


1.4. Cancelled games


Teams/players must give a full 24 hours notice before cancelling a league game. 


1.5. Disqualification


To keep tournaments as efficient as possible, Ready Fight reserves the right to disqualify teams. This will only be done in cases where a team purposefully stalls or attempts to block another team. In some scenarios both teams may be affected.Teams have 5 minutes from the designated start times of their rounds, or designated times which an admin has set, to field a full roster from their registered list. If said roster fails to appear they will forfeit game 1 of their set and the opposing team will be given the right to choose first pick and ban or second pick and ban. Any team found to be using a known exploit will forfeit their game upon the first occurrence of the exploit. If the team is found to use another known exploit for a second time and it is determined to have been done on purpose they will be removed from the event and barred from any future events.

1.6. Referees

During matches, players must fully respect and adhere to the referees rules. Disputes against the referee may be formally made to management after the game before leaving the premises. If it is found that the dispute has merit and the referee was at fault, the game will be replayed at another given date. 

1.7. Payments


Full payment for each player and team must be paid in full prior to the game starting. No game will start without payment

1.8. Substitutes

4.2. Picks, Bans and Maps


4.2.1. Automatic 


Battlegrounds will be chosen at random using an algorithm. Each team's captain will be afforded the opportunity to  ban a battleground - effectively removing it from the pool.
Each match will begin with an initial Battleground selection process.  Each game within a match will begin with a drafting process to determine which heroes each
team will play. Each team will have 60 seconds per selection phase in which to ban and pick
heroes. If a team runs out of time, its pick will be randomly selected or it’s ban will be missed.

1. Team B will ban one hero
2. Team A will ban one hero
3. Team B will choose one hero

Unless stated otherwise by the referee, all available Heroes can be used in a match.

4.4. Game preparations


Please resolve any problems that might occur before a match starts. Connection or Hardware Problems during a match could lead into a disqualification by RFL admins. Make sure the match is played with the right settings, e.g. Draft Mode and Map. Make sure all players are eligible to play. In team games, all players must be registered in their corresponding team. The usage of a team foreign player can lead into (a) warning. (b) disqualification. (c) 2-6 penalty points (d) re-match, depending on the case. An RFL admin will take further actions if there is any suspicion.

4.5.1. Pause Rule

It is forbidden to use the pause without an obvious reason like a player disconnect.The pause time shouldn't be longer than 10 minutes in total. In the case a longer pause being needed, the opponent or an RSL admin has to agree it, otherwise will the match continue. In the case a player disconnects or has technical issues, it is allowed to use the pause. In all other cases, both teams have to agree to a pause of the game in all chat. To unpause a game is only allowed if both teams agree to it in all chat or a pause lasted longer as 10 minutes and no further agreements were made. Abuse of the pause will lead to a disqualification. Ultimately the referee will make the call.
