Additional Rules and Requirements
If you proceed to the Playoffs, there is a chance that your match will be professionally casted. Therefore, all Top 16 Playoff participants must be able and willing to share their screen to our private Discord channel. If you are unable or unwilling to do so, then the 7th qualifying player from the Swiss stage will be chosen to fill your place.
If you plan to stream your matches to your personal Twitch account, this is allowable with a minimum 3-minute delay, however should any problems with bandwidth/screensharing occur, we would expect you to prioritise the official stream above your own personal stream. If you anticipate connection/bandwidth issues, we recommend simply using your normal streaming setup to record your matches for later broadcast.
An optional requirement: We would love to receive a photo and brief biography about you, so that we can promote you to our followers and give our casters some information to work from.
What if cross-shard isn't ready in time?
Riot has indicated that cross-shard (i.e. inter-regional) play will be available before the planned date of this tournament. Should this release be delayed, we will consider other options for the continuation of the tournament: most likely either be delaying the event date or by region-locking participation. We sincerely hope we won't have to make this decision!
