Following the demands of quite a few clans, the increase of players in our community and the need for a better ruling on the subject, we have updated the subsitutes rule.
The new rule is as follows:
Additional players are only accepted as substitutes. There can only be a maximum of 2 substitutes per team.
- Every team has the right to a 6th player as a substitute. A seventh substitute is allowed, providing the opponent does not object at the time the player joins. A new substitute may only join when the game is paused, between each half of a map or right after a map change.
- If a substitute is not able to give the game demo upon request, the game result will be a default loss.
- The substitute has to join his team and color as a player before using the substitute command.
- A substitute can only replace a player when the game is paused, between each half of a map or right after a map change.
In brief, this means that as usual every team has the right to having a 6th player as a substitute. The change is that it is now possible to have a seventh substitute. However, a team has the right to refuse their opponent to have a second sub (and automatically forfeits their right to have a second substitute as well) for any
Although we already considered that allowed, we have also added to the rule that substitutes are only allowed to join the game and replace a player when the game is paused, between each half of a map or right after a map change.
