  • Opposing team is utilizing a restricted item
  • Opposing team has incorrect players or did not show up on time

For the most efficient communication and fastest response, submit a dispute on your match details page and we will work out whatever issues you may have. Additionally, if you can provide video evidence (YouTube, PS4 Share) of major disputes, it will help speed up our process and get you through the tournament faster!
