Rules and Regulations – Offline Event
1. The winning team will be decided upon destruction of the enemy Nexus.
2. Punctual and ready teams will have a right to impose penalties on teams that are late.
Definition of punctual/ready – (All 5 players in the lobby) (1 person in the lobby is not counted as present or ready)

3 . Disconnections
In the case of players having disconnections, games should be paused by using /pause command.
(a) After 7 minutes: Team that requested for pause will confirm with marshals whether to bring in the substitute player to take over the disconnected player.
Same champion picks and summoner spells must be used for the restarted game.
(b) After 15 minutes: Decision will be made by the referee.
The referee will only make a judgement in the following situation:
(i) To all players due to an issue with the server. The team with the most inhibitors up will be declared the winner.
(ii) Within 2 minutes from the start of the match & before first blood, if they are unable to reconnect
(iii) Selection Error. In the event of an erroneously-selected Champion Pick/Ban, the team in error must notify the referee before the other team has locked in their next selection. If so, the champion select process will be restarted and brought back to the point where the error occurred so that the team that made the error can correct their mistake. If the next selection is locked in before the team informs the referee, the team will have to play on with the erroneously-selected Champion. The event in which a player does not own the Champion that the team wishes to draft and locks in a substitute champion is NOT considered a selection error and teams will not be allowed to remake the game.
Judgment may include, (a) restarting the game or (b) awarding the game to one of the teams.
(a) Restarting the game
Both teams should have the same champions they picked and banned previously, as well as Summoner spells, unless there is a case where a bug occurred during the champion select phase that led to a situation where players were unable to change their Summoner spell.
If any players were to encounter any in-game issues, please use the /pause command and proceed to the discord channel to communicate your problems to the marshals. Players are not allowed to restart the game until the marshal has given permission to do so.
(b) Awarded Game Victory
In the event of a technical difficulty which requires the referee to declare a restart, the referee may instead award a game victory to a team. If a game has been played for more than 20 minutes on the game clock (00:20:00), the referee, in their sole discretion, may determine that a team cannot avoid defeat to a degree of reasonable certainty. The following criteria may be used in the determination of reasonable certainty.
(i) Gold Differential. The difference in gold between the teams is more than 33%
(ii) Remaining Turret Differential. The difference in the number of remaining turrets between the teams is more than seven.
(iii) Remaining Inhibitor Differential. The difference in the number of standing inhibitors between the teams is more than two.
