2.5. Pre-Match Procedures

Upon checking in players are expected to begin Pre-Match procedures, which include signing a release, setting up mice and keyboards, and any other set-up instructions per the Tournament Officials. Once a player enters the tournament area for pre-match procedures they must check in with a tournament official to receive permission to leave the area—this is to help ensure players are not replaced with alternates because their whereabouts are unknown.

2.6. Tournament Area

The event area (the computer area inside the curtain partitions) is to remain free of trash, drinks and food at all times. If for any reason you need to leave the event area, please check-in with an Event Official first.

2.7. Technical Issues

Technical issues impacting more than one player will be at the discretion of the Tournament Official to warrant a match restart. However, if a player's monitor, keyboard or mouse disconnect or are faulty, the Event Official will attempt to reinstate game play for the player. If it is not possible to reinstate game play, that player is eliminated from that game.

Tournament Officials will not be able to troubleshoot player provided peripherals. If a player encounters a malfunction with their provided device Daybreak will make attempt to replace it with a sponsored mouse in a timely manner to keep the player in the match.

Restarting a match is a discretionary decision of the Tournament Official, based on his or her best judgment to conduct a fair event for all players. All players entering into the H1Z1 Elite Series Sweden should know that the game is still in Early Access development, and there are bugs that may impact a player’s game experience. Bugs experienced by a single player may not warrant a match restart, and the match will instead continue.

Players who experience an technical issue should raise their hand and call for a judge immediately.

2.8. End of Game Procedures

Upon being eliminated from the match, players should exit the tournament area and remain in the "check-in" area outside the curtain partition. Players eliminated from a match are not allowed to interact with players still remaining in the match. Once the match has concluded and the tournament area is readied, players will be asked to quickly take their seats to prepare for the next match.

Upon conclusion of the tournament, any players expected to earn a prize are required to stay to fill out appropriate tax form and to take pictures. Players who fail to stay for these activities will be ineligible for prizing.

2.9. Cheating

Players are not allowed to install any programs on to the tournament computers.

Players are not allowed to team with other players, or attempt to collude.

Players are not allowed to interact with any computers other than their own.

Players are not allowed to use exploits to gain advantage in the match.

Players must play the game in Full Screen mode, and use the equipment provided by Daybreak Games or approved by Daybreak Games.

Players may not remove their peripherals from the tournament area between qualifiers and finals. Approved and verified peripherals must stay with Daybreak Games until after the finals.

Voice chat will not be allowed in-game for the Solo Tournament. In the Team Tournament, the teams must use the voice chat provided by Daybreak Games.

If the Event Official determines that a player is cheating, that player will be removed from the event and is ineligible for prizes.

2.9.1. Outside Assistance

Players may not receive outside assistance regarding the location of other players, other players’ health or equipment, or any other information not otherwise known to the player by the information on their own screen. Players are therefore also not allowed to provide another player with outside assistance.

If the Tournament Official determines that a player has received outside assistance, or provides another player with outside assistance, that player will be removed from the event and ineligible for prizing.

2.10. Unbecoming or Unsportsmanlike Conduct

Players are expected to conduct themselves in accordance with the End User License Agreement, Daybreak Terms of Service, H1Z1 Elite Series Sweden Tournament Policy, and the DreamHack Rules of Conduct at all times. At any time, if a player behaves in anyway determined by the Tournament Official as unbecoming, the Tournament Official may ask the player to leave and that player would be ineligible for prizes.

3. Responsibilities

3.1. All Players

All players are responsible for the following:

  • Understand the most recent version of the Tournament Policy document.

  • Avoid interfering with the match, which includes interacting with computers or players still playing in a match.
  • Follow instructions given by the Tournament Official.
  • Do not insult another player, his or her strategies or skills in a way that could be deemed harassing or abusive.

3.2. Tournament Official

The Tournament Official is there to ensure an on-time and fair tournament. Players are expected to follow instructions by the Tournament Official at all times. Application of the Tournament Policy is at the judgment of the Tournament Official and must be observed by all players participating in the event. The Tournament Official will have final determination on cheating, unbecoming conduct, and event operations as they pertains to a player’s ability to participate in the event or to be eligible for prizes.
