    • Changes to the Score V2 algorithm were proposed by the Tournament Management to the developers already and are yet under review.

    • There will also be a Hidden, HardRock and a DoubleTime bracket.
  4. Match schedule will be settled by the Tournament Management (see below).
  5. If no staff or referee is available, the match will be postponed.
  6. Failed players' scores do not get added to the team score.
    • Reviving and surviving during a map gets considered as passing it.
  7. Use of the Visual Settings to alter background dim or disable map elements like storyboards and skins are allowed.
  8. If the beatmap ends in a draw, the game will be nullified.
  9. If a player disconnects, they get treated as if they failed the map.
