3. Tournament Rules
The rules below will pertain to MLB The Show 21 Tournaments ran by the Zoned Out Gaming organization.
3.1. Match Details
3.2 Match Settings
All participates must agree on the game settings mentioned below. Please note that if you play a match to the end, you automatically accept it with all settings, modes, etc., and it will be evaluated. Even if a wrong setting was chosen and you play the match to the end, the match will be counted. You have the possibility to protest before the second quarter of the match is over to avoid this.
3.4 Match Hosting
Remember that the team on the bottom of the bracket is the Home team. The Home team will be responsible for creating the Online Lobby and confirming the match settings. To play your opponent you must invite them to your friend’s list.
3.5. No Show
Players must check in at least 5mins before their scheduled match. Each player has 10 minutes to show up to a match (i.e. schedule match start time + 10 minutes.) Not showing up within 10 minutes results in a default loss. The player that communicated, showed up and is waiting, must report the protest and will receive the win.
3.6. Protest & Disputes
All match disputes should be submitted in Discord if possible, but should you need discretion, please submit using the following link: https://zonedoutgaming.com/tournaments/match-disputes
See our General Tournament Rules for more information related to dispute submissions (i.e. sufficient evidence, timestamps, etc.) – https://zonedoutgaming.com/tournaments/game-rules/general-tournament-rules/
3.7. Tournament Results
Both players are responsible for reporting accurate results within the Zoned Out Gaming Discord server. If you’re unable to report results please see a Staff member.
If both players select the same team, at the end of the match both players are expected to report the match accurately with confirmation from both sides. Also, it may be beneficial to screenshot your results.
In case of disconnection, both players must share screenshots with the message of disconnection within Discord with the admin staff. In the screenshot, the opponent’s nickname must be visible and legible, as is the last score kept until the moment of the unexpected situation.
Players are responsible for their own technical problems (Hardware/Internet).
Tournaments and Matches will not be postponed due to such problems and must be played.
Matches will be played as a best of 3 series for the Regular Season, and a best of 3 series for the Finals (ie Post Season.)
The rules below will pertain to MLB The Show 21 League ran by the Zoned Out Gaming organization.
The home team will create the lobby and invite the away team. Matches will be played across varying formats.
The following rules will govern play in official matches.
These are the current settings used for our custom league.
All trades should be viewable to the league. Trade conversations should occur within the #mlb-trade-block channel. After a trade has been mutually agreed upon, then you must take a screenshot of the in-game offer and post it to the #mlb-trade-approval channel, and mention @Trade Committee.
The Trade Committee will approve trades prior to the acceptance of any trade by voting on the screenshot in the channel. Once approved you may proceed with the trade. Should the committee reach an even vote, then an additional League admin will be involved to break the tie.
Previous members will be ranked by their placement from the previous season. New members will be added based upon the waitlist and completion of existing members returning to the league. Snake Draft will be our drafting method.
Allowed but needs to be within the boundaries of the Discord server rules and guidelines. Please see #roles-rules for more detailed information.
Keep the personal disrespect at an all-time low!
