    BtC eLeague Rules (Subject to Change):

    • Entry Fees

      • Due to overwhelming feedback, entry to the BtC eLeague is now Free all season.  

    • Tournament Point System

      • Each tournament will have a point system relative to the amount of people that are participating within that tournament. Hypothetically, there will never be the same amount of points offered from tournament to tournament due to varying player participation. For example, if there are 32 players participating in the tournament, then 1st place would receive 32 points (2nd place would receive 31 points, 3rd place would receive 30 points, etc..).

      • Winners from each of the four “Open” tournaments automatically advance to the Invitationals on July 13th, 2019. The remaining 12 positions will be determined via the point system outlined above. More specifically, the 12-15 players with the highest remaining points, will advance to the Invitationals. Repeat winners will only retain one spot for the Invitationals.

      • • All players who leave the tournament early, regardless of the matches already played, will not receiving any prizes, but instead their prizes and points will go to the next player in line.

    • Streaming via Twitch or Mixer

      • Players can stream their own perspective on their respective streaming platform throughout any part of the tournament. Streaming your perspective will put you at risk of being stream sniped and there will be no way for us to prevent this. Stream at your own risk.

      • Breaking the Clutch will be streaming and casting selected parts of the tournament. To prevent players from stream sniping from our stream, we will have a two minute delay.

    • Player Behavior Guidelines

      • Players are expected to be nothing short of respectful to their opponents and to the staff that are hosting the tournament.

      • Threatening a player via message or game chat, with explicit proof, will result in a permanent ban from any and all tournaments that we host.

      • Players who were previously banned from the HWCL will have a clean slate in the BtC eLeague. We are giving players a chance to show they have improved their etiquette and are willing to play respectfully with their fellow community members.

      • Any player caught manipulating the game settings or the game itself, with explicit proof, will be permanently banned from the BtC eLeague.

      • The only player permanently banned from the BtC eLeague is YoungBerk due to his persistent verbal abuse toward BtC staff.

      • If a player has been banned from the BtC eLeague due to violating a rule above, then there will be a detailed case shown on our website outlining the reasoning for their ban. This is to make the process transparent.

      • Smurf or secondary accounts will not be allowed to enter into any of our tournaments. It is at the discretion of the BtC staff to admit newer accounts into the tournament.
