Player Disconnects
If a player disconnects the game can be restarted if the game has not yet reached the 5 min. mark, and first blood has not been earned.

Stoppage of Play
• Unintentional Disconnection: One player losing connection to the game due to problems or issues with the game client, platform, network, or PC.
• Game Leaving/Intentional Disconnection: One player losing connection to the game due to player’s actions (i.e. quitting the game)..
• Server Crash: Multiple players losing connection to a game due to an issue with a server or platform.
Stoppage of Play Procedure/Pause Rules
• A player, who is experiences technical issues, on any team may call for a game restart prior to first blood within the first 5 minutes of the game (i.e. before the timer shows 5:00). The player must be experiencing a hardware malfunction (e.g. monitor, peripheral, etc), a physical disruption (e.g. fan interference, table or chair breakage), or a configuration issues (e.g. runes, masteries, or summoner spells are not properly applied). The player must declare the issue in public chat or to a tournament administrator and then intentionally disconnect. Once the player disconnects, the game is considered null and void and should be restarted unless a tournament administrator determines that the conduct represents unfair play.
• If an unintentional disconnection occurs within 5 minutes from the start of the match & before first blood –OR– a player’s client crashes or fails to load after champion selection, then the match must be restarted. Otherwise if the unintentional disconnection occurs after those milestones, the game will continue as normal. The crashed player may reconnect into the game as soon as they are able.
• If a player intentionally disconnects without specifying a reason, then the game will continue as normal.

Unfair play
• The following actions will be considered unfair play:
• The use of any cheat program and/or map hack program.
• An intentional disconnection without a proper and explicitly stated reason
• The use of any settings exceeding the standard and permitted settings
• Intentionally allowing an opponent to win a game.
• Unsportsmanlike or disruptive behavior such as inappropriate and/or unprofessional actions directed towards another player or tournament official.
• The use of a game bug that is determined by the board of referees as being unfair.
• The use of an ineligible player (aka “ringing”)
• Upon discovery of any player committing any violations regarded as unfair play, the offending player, at the sole discretion of the tournament director or a group of referees, may receive a warning, a forfeit loss, disqualified from the tournament.
• During the course of the event, the tournament director or group of referees may determine other actions to embody unfair play.
