General

  • The DreamHack administration reserves the exclusive right to decide outside or even against the rulebook in special cases to ensure fair play.
  • All players are required to behave in a humane way towards other competitors, and to any member of the administration team; they are to treat others as they themselves would like to be treated. If a player is found guilty of misconduct by an administrator, they may receive a penalty. In severe cases players may be disqualified and/or removed from DreamHack Winter.
  • Every team must read, understand and agree to the rules for participation in the DreamHack BYOC tournament (the “Rules”). Players agree to and consent to these rules, as well as DreamHack’s authority to enforce them, as a condition of their participation. Each player is therefore expected and required to abide by the Rules, and any failure to follow them will result in punitive measures.
  • Each player may only use their own account.
  • Teams must hold an appropriate name. Any team attempting to sign up for a tournament with a name deemed unsuitable will be asked to create a new team name in order to participate.
  • Each player shall use his or her best efforts to report any Bugs found immediately at the end of each Game. Any player knowingly using one (1) or more Bugs to his or her advantage will be immediately disqualified from the Tournament.
  • Due to any possible technical issues w/PUBG or its servers, games may be rescheduled on an Admins behalf to another day and time not listed on the schedule.
  • Cheating is strictly prohibited. No player should be manipulating game files, using unapproved game modifications, or any other method by which one may gain an unfair advantage over another player.
  • If any player is found using such cheats or injectors during competitive play, all games that were affected due to cheats will be subject to forfeiture and other potential penalties.
  • Any points and achievements accumulated by a team stays only with that team and the two players within that team. Points will not be transferred if a team member leaves, a new team member joins, or a team disbands.
  • All rules are subject to change at anytime without notice, if you find any errors and/or mistakes please message an Admin.

TL;DR

The three things you need to remember:

  • You need to be present at DreamHack Winter 2017 with a standard BYOC ticket (LAN seat).
  • You need to join the PUBG channel in the official DreamHack discord: https://discordapp.com/invite/dreamhack
  • You will play Duo’s in FPP.
