Team A vs Team B Map Score: (X)-(X) Round Score: (X)-(X) End of Round Scoreboard Screenshot If the losing team wishes to contest the result, it must do so within 24 hours of the match end.

  • 3 yellow cards in a Season = 1 Red Card (1 Red Card = -5 points on the League Table)
  • Teams who forfeit matches will be penalised with -2 points on the League Table (After x3 forfeits in a season that team will be disqualified)

SERVER UNPLAYABLE (CRASHES or UPDATES)

In the event that a server crashes during a LIVE round, please use the following procedure: If a server crashes in a burn round or with a ticket count less than <150 points, the team hosting is required to provide a new server in the same region, OR continue the match on the opposite’s team server. If the server crashes once, it will likely crash again for a brief period of time. A maximum of 15minutes will be allowed to restore the game, failing to restore the game in this time period the game must be rescheduled with the procedure specified below.
If the server crashes with and equal or greater than 150 ticket count on the score board and the leading team is ahead by =>50 points, then the leading team will win the map and it will not be replayed on a reschedule, the score must be noted and submitted for the map win.
In games where server crashes are experienced by everyone it is the duty of the team captains to immediately confirm to each other if player(s) disconnects from the game. If player disconnects has taken place before the 150 ticket mark on a server that crashed the full map will be replayed on server restore or another planned date.
When both teams agree that a server crash has taken place and the game cannot continue on another server on the night, a rematch must take place on a different date. The date of a rematch must take place within 48HR of the server crash problem being fixed, the 48Hr countdown will exclude Saturdays and Sundays. The new date and time must be submitted to the roster and the League Master must be informed. The same maps will be replayed in this event. In the event that the server is unplayable due to an update the above will also apply.

SPECTATOR MODE

Provided that both team captains of the teams that are playing agree, teams may spectate that match for the purpose of broadcasting the match to the community. Take special note, that if such agreement is reached between the two teams, any infringement and or accusation arising from this arrangement will not be recognized by the organizers.
Same team spectating will be allowed only if:
  1. The match is broadcasted (Link to be provided by the stream team)
  2. The captains explicitly agree (Assumptions will not be regarded as a defense)
  3. A representative of both teams is present on the broadcast (If a team wishes to stream their own clans match a commentator from the opposing team must be present in the stream, both teams should be represented)
If the above conditions are not 100% met, the below rule will apply.
Teams are asked not to spectate matches no matter the reason. Teams are therefore responsible for all their players and need to remind them of this. Since servers can now be password protected, unless teams give out passwords, no one can join as a spectator. We will be looking out for any proof of teams spectating throughout the league. We therefore recommend that teams change their server password before every match to avoid people keeping track of old passwords and joining as possible spectators. Teams caught spectating will face the following consequences if enough proof is gathered. The player(s) using spectator mode will receive a one Season ban. If the player is a member one of the teams that is playing, they will forfeit the entire match the spectator was used on. Teams will also receive a penalty point, which will deduct 1 point from their division points total. We therefore ask teams to act with good sportsmanship and refrain from cheating.

COMMITMENT & FAIR PLAY

Participating in our leagues takes a lot of effort and dedication from teams who want to compete in a stable and competitive environment consistently. Teams that participate in our leagues automatically commit to playing their respective season fully. Teams who choose to leave or stop playing in the league before the season is over will face the following consequences:
Ban from participating in the next BFCW League Season. Note: Teams who forfeit more than 2 Games during a single season will be banned from participating in the upcoming season as well. We also ask teams to refrain from abusing known glitches to get an advantage in matches. Due to the different nature of these glitches, each case will be reviewed individually and a decision will be made by the admins. As Section 3.1 of the rules states, sharing accounts is strictly prohibited. Teams caught using these “ringer” (shared) accounts will be disqualified from the league and may receive a ban from upcoming seasons/events that BFCW hosts.We therefore ask teams to maintain a certain level of fair play when playing in our events

FRAUD & CHEATING

FRAUD Attempts to convince any part of the Battlefield Clan Wars administration team with false information, data or fake statements may result in a permanent ban from all Battlefield Clan Wars Leagues, competitions, tournaments and social media platforms. This includes accusing players and teams from cheating without proof.Any sort of cheating either direct or indirect during a Battlefield Clan Wars season or match is forbidden.
CHEATING in any competitive environment is prohibited in any form. Cheating in video games involves a player using non-standard methods to create an advantage or disadvantage beyond normal gameplay, in order to make the game easier or harder. Cheats may be activated from within the game itself (a cheat code implemented by the original game developers), or created by third-party software (a game trainer) or hardware (a cheat cartridge or controller). They can also be relised by exploiting software bugs; this may or may not be considered cheating based on whether the bug is considered common knowledge.
PROMOTING, advertising or encouraging the use of any cheating method, device or exploit as mentioned above is prohibited. We promote “Good Sportsmanship” on all our platforms – It is the responsibility of the team as a whole to ensure their team mates comply with “Good Sportsmanship at all times” We reserve the right to enforce a permanent or temporary ban on any team who does not comply with “Good Sportsmanship”
GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP is an aspiration or ethos that a sport or activity will be enjoyed for its own sake, with proper consideration for fairness, ethics, respect, and a sense of fellowship with one’s competitors. In general, sportsmanship refers to virtues such as fairness, self-control, courage, and persistence, and has been associated with interpersonal concepts of treating others and being treated fairly, maintaining self-control if dealing with others, and respect for both authority and opponents.
