General eRivals.com Rules
Rivals are full responsible for understanding and compliance with all rules of Erivals.com. All rules apply to every Rival on our site. Only those rules agreed upon in the Erivals match lobby will be rules used in the games. Any other rules added into the competition are not enforceable.
We do not allow rivals to compete against one another in custom games with custom rosters and custom players. If you are found to have changed a roster to give yourself a competitive advantage, you will automatically forfeit that game. Any changing of rosters or players to custom settings may result in an automatic forfeit and potentially a ban from Erivals.com.
Lag. We understand that some Rivals don’t have the best internet connection and LAG may be a factor in some matches. If both rivals are able to play the game, then the game will have to be played. We have no way of knowing how bad the lag may be in your game, so we encourage rivals to compete in matches with very little lag. If a rival is found to be intentionally lagging or unplugging their internet connection to give themselves a competitive advantage, that rival will automatically lose that game and potentially be banned from Erivals.com.
Verifying Results and Match Termination
- Once a match has been accepted between Rivals, the rivals have 4 hours to play the match.
- If neither rival reports a result within 4 hours of the match being confirmed, the match will be considered terminated.
- Terminated matches are not reported on a Rival’s profile and the funds are returned to each individual account
- Once a match is terminated, it can no longer be played. Both Rival’s can challenge each other again, but they must do so under a new match.
- When a rival in a head to head match reports the score, the opponent must confirm or counter the results within 1 hour or the initial reported score will automatically be confirmed. This prevents deposit delays from poor sportsmanship.
We take match disputes very seriously and want to deliver the best possible experience for all of our rivals. If a rival claims that his / her opponent has broken a rule in a match, evidence is required or the dispute claim will most likely not be considered valid.
If both rivals agree to specific settings of a match on Half Length, Controls, Game Speed and Squad Type, those settings must be played in the match. Should both Players play that match without the agreed upon match settings, the match will be considered null and void.
No rival is under any obligation to play in a match with settings that you have not agreed to.
There are no forfeits on Erivals.com. No rival may claim a reason to win a match before that match has started. Should you attempt to claim a win for an unplayed match, your account will be reviewed and potentially banned from Erivals.com.
Should you exit, quit or disconnect from a match while you are losing or tied, your match will create a dispute. If you cannot provide evidence that would give reasonable excuse for why you left the match, your match will potentially be forfeited. Any rival that exits, quits or disconnects from matches on a consistent basis will have their account reviewed and potentially banned from Erivals.com.
If you report a score for a match before the match has been completed, a dispute will be created.
Rivals that are found to be reporting incorrect or incomplete scores as final will have their accounts reviewed and potentially banned.
If you are found to be reporting inaccurate or forged information / evidence in an effort to deceive Erivals, your dispute review will result in an automatic forfeit, you will lose the full amount of the match and your account will enter review and potentially be banned.
Players should not try to deceive their opponent or Erivals in any way. If you provide inaccurate or forged information, you may forfeit your match and face further consequences.
