If at least two players on your team's roster are attending a LAN event, it is possible to get an extension to have your league match played.
Each event is reviewed on a case-by-case basis and a reschedule may not be granted under certain circumstances.
Teams must alert their opponents via the match page comments at least 24 hours in advance of the match's scheduled time in order to have it forcibly moved.
Typically, we allow one (1) day to travel to the event, and one (1) day to travel back. Example, if a LAN event happens from Friday - Sunday, we would allow a team to report scheduled match from Thursday - Monday.
In order to have your match pushed back, you need to complete the following steps:
- Open a league ticket, with all the information about the LAN (dates, match impacted, etc.)
- Post all information about the LAN (leave dates, return dates, etc.) on the match page.
- Contact the opponent and inform them of the situation.
- Agree on a new date & time with your opponent, within 7 days of the extension's date.
It is very important that the impacted league match is rescheduled before the LAN actually occurs, to make sure it has been rescheduled before leaving for the LAN. If the match cannot be rescheduled before the LAN, it is important the team competing in the LAN posts the information about the LAN on the match page so league staff and the other team are also aware.
Failure to follow these steps may result in a forfeit loss. All forfeits set while a team is away for LAN competitions will be reviewed by league staff and are subject to be over turned.
Please note, this policy is not guaranteed during season playoffs as match delays can affect following rounds.
