The remaining offers sent, after the first one has been accepted will the rest not be automatically accepted.

If both teams are communicating but solving the dispute is not possible, then the default-time set from the start will be the time for the match.

Server Crashes & Disconnects
- If a server were to crash during a match, please contact an admin through live-chat or through our official Discord channel.
- If the server the match is being played on were to crash during the game, then the last round you played will be the round you start at once a new server has been given to you.
- If technical issues would occur during a game, then use the command !tech. You are allowed to use this command for 10 minutes in total, if the issue is not resolved must the match be unpaused anyways.
- For tactical pauses, use !pause. You will be given a total of 4 pauses, each duration per pause is 30 seconds.
- The games will be played on SCL 128 Tick Servers.
- Make sure you join the game with the same steam-account you registered to SCL with. Otherwise, you will not be able to join the game and we can’t do anything about it.
- The game is supposed to go live at the exact scheduled time. The server is
available to connect to 10 minutes before the scheduled time. Every player
is required to connect to the server during this period. Once you connect to
the server, use the !ready command. You can connect to the server at
latest 10 minutes after the scheduled match-time. This means that you
have a 20-minute gap in total to connect to the match.
(E.G, a match scheduled to 21.00 will open the server at 20.50 - 21.10)
- If one or more players are not able to join during the 10-minute period mentioned above, then feel free to use the command !forceready. This command will allow you to start the game with the current players on the server until the last players join. This is a disadvantage but we will not reschedule the match for you if specific players can’t make it in time, it is a requirement to be on time or else this is your only option.
- If your team does not show up on the given time, or if 5 players from your team has not used the !ready command then your team will lose to forfeit.
- SCL will be using the ESL5on5 config for the games, since it is the most common option for competitive CS:GO.
- The veto has to be done 48 hours before your game starts. In case it is not, the final map will be randomized.
- To coach a match, use the command .coach when entering the server. Make sure the coach joins before the whole team, otherwise this will not be possible.
- To replay the last round, contact an admin and explain the situation.
- If the opponent team suggests to turn off agent-skins, then it is not allowed to resist.
- If your opponent has informed you that the current server is not suitable for them, are you required to accept the switch server offer. The only exception to deny the offer is if the new location will not be suitable for your team.
