Team captains during team-based tournaments or individual players during Free For All tournaments that agree on a specific date must make sure that they or their team shows up on the agreed-upon time. If a party does not join the in-game lobby within 15 minutes after the agreed-upon time, they will be at risk of disqualification. The party that does not respond on MOBILE E-SPORTS’ Discord chat room and to e-mails within 24 hours, may be disqualified.
