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.
The rules below will pertain to MLB The Show 21 League ran by the Zoned Out Gaming organization.
Our MLB seasons will run for approximately 6 weeks at a time. Matches will be played as a single game series for the Regular Season, and a best of 3 series for the Post Season. The Top 8 Teams in the league will advance to the Post Season.
The home team will create the lobby and invite the away team. Matches will be played across varying formats.
The following rules will govern conduct and behavior in the league:
These are the current settings used for our custom league.
All trades should be viewable to the league. Trade conversations should occur within the 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 trade approval channel. ONLY screenshots will be allowed in the trade approval channel. The Trade Committee will approve trades by voting on the screenshot in the channel. Once approved you may proceed with the trade. Trades may take upwards of 24hrs to be completed.
Should a trade occur that was not approved by the Trade Committee, the trade will be deemed illegal and players must be sent back to their original team until approved. Should a game occur with unapproved players, then both teams involved will be punished for failure to approve the trade.
You will be given a date of when the team selection will take place. Admins and The Top 8 from the previous season will automatically be locked into the next season. New members will be added based on their waitlist status and the confirmation of existing members returning to the league. Should we exceed 45 total sign-ups, then the remaining league spots will be randomly selected. The draft order will be randomized once the league has been locked.
You will be pinged during the team selection window, you will have a 3hr window to respond. Should you not respond in time, then you will be moved to the back of the draft. Should you provide the admins with your preferred teams, then we will pick the top available team for you. If you have not selected a team, provided a preferred team list, or responded within 48hrs after the draft ends, then your spot will be forfeited to the next player on the waitlist.
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!
