Our ASTRO Spartans FFA tournaments feature heats of eight players per match. At the start of each round, the player at the top of each group will be designated as the host for the lobby, and they will be responsible for inviting all other players and beginning the tournament match. They will also be responsible for using the correct map and gametype settings listed above.
FFA matches have a 10 minute cutoff mark for disqualification. Hosts may officially begin their matches 10 minutes after the round start time. If Round 1 begins at 8:00pm, all matches are expected to begin by 8:10pm.
