How does the Ready-Up work?
For each first match played each day there is a Ready-Up check. In order for the Ready-Up to work both teams must submit their starting roster until the latest 15 minutes after the scheduled starting time for that match. Should a team fail to submit their starting roster the other team will automatically be awarded the win.

Ready-up will be available for those teams that submitted their roster starting 15 minutes before the scheduled time and lasts for 45 minutes until half past the scheduled time. Within this timeframe each player listed as part of either team's starting roster has to confirm they are ready to play. To do this they simply have to click the button shown at the match-page.

Once all players have confirmed that they are ready the teams can proceed to the veto. Should a team fail to fully ready-up the other team will automatically be awarded a win.

In case a team plays more than one match a day they will not have to ready-up for the following matches.

Why are we not playing on the newest patch?
To ensure a stable competitive environment, patches will only be played in official competition after a determined period of time, as it is otherwise considered high risk for esports use (eg. unforeseen bugs, potential cheats, hot fixes). The patch available for competitive play is determined by that time period, not competitive stage. The patch will apply for all regions competing in the same time frame (eg. all competitions happening in the same week - Europe Week 2 and Turkey, CIS Week 1) . The same framework is applied across other Riot Games tournaments, like League of Legends Esports.

How do I contact my opponent?
The easiest way to contact your opponent is via the match page in the comment section. The team displayed on the left side of the match has to create the match lobby and invite at least one of the opposing players to it.

The opponent is late/inactive.
If your opponent is not ready to start the map vote ten (10) minutes after the match is supposed to start the team loses the match by default. Please create a support ticket to inform an admin about this.

What do I have to do after the match is over?
Once the match is over enter the result on the match page. If you or your opponent entered a wrong (or no) result, please open a support ticket and upload screenshots of the match result on the match page to speed up the process.
