Rules

  1. Have Fun!
  2. Do not argue about the results or fairness of the race.
  3. Streaming is required!
    3.1 You must play the game live on your Twitch channel that is linked to your discord profile.
    3.2 Do not start until designated to do so - you will be notified by the bot once your teammate finishes.
  4. If any member on a team is found violating the rules, the ENTIRE team will be disqualified!
    4.1 Even if there is no money at stake, we take speedrunning integrity very seriously. Be prepared to defend yourself if proof of legitimacy is called for. The stream recording should suffice in most cases.
  5. The speedrun.com leaderbord rules apply for every game/category
  6. The order of the games is fixed. You may not change the order except with special permission from the event organizer.
  7. If your team is missing a player or cannot complete all 6 runs, your team will be disqualified unless you can find a suitable replacement approved by the event organizer.
    7.1 If you quit, be ready to feel the wrath of your teammates.
  8. You may start late, but timing begins at the same time for everyone
  9. When you finish your run, tell the next runner of your team so they can start
    immediately after. The time continues even if the next runner is not ready.
  10. Timing start for the first run will be determined by ZSRBot's countdown.
  11. Timing for your team ends when the last member of your team finished.
