    Map Pool

    - Equal Footing

    - Ghost Lake

    - Grasslands

    - Acropolis

    - Savannah

    - Treasure Island

    - Inland

    - Sheltered Pass



    The first map in all series is Equal Footing. Subsequent maps will be chosen by the previous game's losing player from the above map pool.


    Each map can only be played once per series.


    Civs:

    Each player can play a civ as many times as they want until they take a win off their opponent. After that, they may not pick that civilization again until the next series.


    Restarts:

    - Casters can restart the game within 2 minutes as many times as they want if they discover map imbalances. Players can pause the game (F10) if they find a map imbalance within the first 2 min. Casters will then decide if a restart is needed. - Players can ask for a restart without any needed reason only once per series, within the first 2 min. Please pause the game and message the caster if you would like to restart.

    - Players may pause no more than 3 times a series, aside from the pause-to-restart.

    - Please take no more than 10 minutes between games in a series as a player to be ready, casters have 15. Repeat offenders risk disqualifications, even smokers! - In case of a game crash or an unexpected disconnection happens, the casters and admins will decide if the game is convincingly in favour of any player and will give the map win if necessary. - In case the streamer disconnects/crashes midgame, players can continue playing their game. After the game ends, a screenshot is needed to confirm the outcome.
