Each team may call to have a game map reset once per match if a connection problem arises, so long as the first round in a game has not been completed, gunfire is not being exchanged, and first blood has not yet occurred. If a game map is rehosted, the same map must be used. If problems persist with regards to a player disconnecting after the game has already been re-hosted, the team must play the remainder of the match with the remaining players and the disconnected player may attempt to reconnect.
Both teams participating in a match must provide 4 players at the beginning of the first game, and 3 for each consecutive game. During a game, if a team should lose 2 players that have disconnected, that team will forfeit the remainder of the game to the opposing team. If a team cannot field the required number of players for additional games in the series, they will forfeit the remainder of the match. The same goes for the Gunfight Game Mode except the team must field a player should someone get disconnected.
The Home Team Captain should create the Private Match. As the hosting Home Team changes over the course of a match, the new hosting Team Captain should leave the Private Match and create a new one.
A refund will NOT be issued if any of the following was the cause of removal or applicable:

Should an individual be removed from a team and wish for a refund, then the refunding responsibility falls upon the TEAM. Gift cards and various rewards are to be accepted as is. They cannot be exchanged or traded for other forms of currency and/or other prizes. Plan accordingly when participating in Open Events.
