- 1-game penalty for the team (1 loss)
- A single team must be composed of 5 members; one member should be the team captain to represent the team. A team with less than 5 members will not be allowed to participate in the semi-finals online tournament.
- Round 1
- Teams will play against each other inside their respective brackets to determine who will advance and represent their region.
- Brackets with 3 teams will have a round robin knock-out match, where every team will play against each other, until the top 2 teams emerge on top. In case of a tie, the scoring will be tabulated. This will be done until the top 2 teams remain, and the winner from those 2 teams advances to round 2.
- Round 2
- Slots (Luzon, NCR, Visayas, Mindanao) would then be shuffled via challenge two times to determine who will play against who.
- Round 3
- Winners of Round 2 will get the entry to the 2015 AF Playpark All Stars Finals plus in-game items.
- Each game will have a maximum of 8 rounds. Once all 8 rounds are finished, sides will switch until the race to 9 is reached.
- Example A:
- Team JBlaze vs Team Erziel. During the First Half, Team JBlaze (GSD) scored 5, Team Erziel (Resistance) scored 3 (notice that 8 rounds were played).
- For the Second Half, teams would now switch sides, Team JBlaze will now be using (Resistance) and Team Erziel will use (GSD). Team JBlaze needs to score 4 points to get the win, while Team Erziel needs to get 6 points to win.
- Remember guys, this is RACE to 9, so when Team JBlaze got the 4 rounds, it secured the win in his favor.
- Example B:
- During the First half, Team JBlaze got 0 while team Erziel scored 8 (notice that 8 rounds again were played)
- For the Second Half, teams would now switch sides. Team JBlaze needs to score all the remaining 9 rounds to win, while Team Erziel needs to score just 1 to get the victory.
- With Team Erziel scoring 1 point to reach 9, her team wins (Race to 9, remember?)
- The maps will be used for the tournament are Factory No. 13, Train and Prison.
- The map and team color or side will be decided via toss coin; 1 toss coin for the map and 1 toss coin for the side.
- Only at the 2015 Playpark All Stars Finals Round will we have a Race to 3 games match.
- Once a game starts, the first round will always be a Dead Round (DR) so that players will be able to load the map and the game properly; second rounds will always be the indicator of the match start.
- Once the team’s line-up has been registered, it can no longer be changed.
- Players will be required to use their personal accounts during the tournament.
- Engaging in any behavior that is unsportsmanlike and includes excessive profanity or violence against property or individuals including the marshals is not allowed and will be sanctioned with a disqualification on the player.
- Players who argue with or fail to follow the instructions of the Tournament officials are subject to the appropriate penalties as dictated by the severity of the case.
- Participants must follow the rules interpretations and guidelines set forth by the Tournament Committee, the Tournament Director, the head judge, and other tournament officials.
- The decision of the Referees, Game Masters, Game Marshall and Tournament Director IS FINAL.
- Some rules are subject to change without prior notice by the tournament officials.
- In case of disconnection inside the game, the players will be asked to reconnect as long as the game allows it. If the disconnection happens and a kill has already taken place, the game will continue, and the score after that round will be accepted. If no kills happened before the DC, and the player wasn’t able to reconnect, then the round will be restarted.
