1. Game Format

1.1. Player Eligibility

All players participating in Mettlestate Apex Legends tournaments must have a valid Origin ID. The game account is needed to check if the correct player is playing.

1.2. Roster

Team rosters must consist of at least the minimum number of players required to participate in a cup. Teams are only allowed to play with players on their roster with a registered game account. All roster changes must be made prior to the start of a cup. Playing with different players and/or illegal ringers will result in punishment. The team must play with their registered roster of 3 players for the duration of the whole cup.

The roster must consist of 3 players. 1 reserve is allowed.

1.3 Game version

All players must install the newest version of the game in order to participate in Mettlestate cups. Updates must be installed before the cup starts, so delays will be at a minimum.

1.4. Technical Issues

Teams are responsible for their own technical issues (hardware/internet). Matches will not be rescheduled because of technical issues and matches will be played regardless.

1.5. Disqualification

To keep cups as efficient as possible, Mettlestate reserves the right to disqualify teams. This will only be done in cases where a team purposefully stalls or attempts to block the cup from starting.

Usage of any 3rd party programs that enhance, add, modify, or remove game appearance, colour, or files, is strictly prohibited during this event.

Intentionally changing your character's angle to look through a texture or object is prohibited. You are not allowed to set two actions to the same key in key bindings.

The intentional use of any bugs, cheats, glitches, or errors in the game is strictly forbidden and will be penalized. Any team found to be using any known exploit will forfeit their game upon the first occurrence of the exploit. If the team is found to use another known exploit for a second time and it is determined to have been done on purpose they will be removed from the cup and barred from any future cups.
