HoboMan6525's Cargo IV and Drop Zone V Rules (thanks).
All of the rules listed here are the default rules, if both you and your opponent think a certain rule is stupid, you can make what is called a "gentleman's agreement" to change something. Some examples of this could be allowing traits, allowing triangle cards, banning scout binoculars, or doing a 3v3.
Any of the original base game blasters are allowed (with the exception of the banned original weapons below):
This tournament will be allowing some DLC weapons. the weapons listed below are permitted for use in the tournament:
X-8 night sniper
K-16 bryar pistol
These weapons are banned for this tournament:
The SE-14c and EE-3 are banned.
The EE-4, TL-50, A180, DT-29, and CJ-9 bo rifle are banned.
Weapons are limited to 1 per person. This meaning no 2 players on a team can use the same weapon.
Trait & Charged Star Card Rules:
No traits are allowed for this tournament. Every trait in the game is banned.
All Charged Star Cards (Middle Star Cards that are activated with Triangle), are banned by default for this tournament.
Any of the main game and free update side Star Cards (Cards that go on L1 and R1) may be used freely with these exceptions:
The Bacta Bomb is banned.
The medical droid is banned.
The shock grenade is banned.
The scatter gun is banned.
The bowcaster and pulse cannon will be allowed for this tournament so power weapon rules will apply:
The power weapons (bowcaster and pulse cannon) are limited to 1 per team. This means all power weapons not 1 of both. Your team is allowed to use 1 pulse cannon OR 1 bowcaster NOT BOTH.
All star cards, excluding the banned ones listed above, are legal to be used in the tournament.
All star cards, excluding the jump pack, are limited to one per player. This means that a team cannot have more than one thermal detonator. This applies to all star cards in the tournament except for the jump pack.
Minimum battle size is 5v5, maximum battle size is 6v6.
Matches are best 2 out of 3, teams shall take turns banning maps back and forth 3 times until there are only 3 maps left, these are the 3 maps that will be used in the battle.
Map pick process:
Teams pick maps using a ban process. The higher seed team gets to ban first. Teams take turns banning back and forth until 3 maps remain.
The higher seeded team may choose to pick map or pick faction. If they pick map then they will pick the first and 3rd map and the other team will decide the factions. If they choose factions then the other team will pick the 1st and 3rd maps and the higher seeded team will pick the factions for those 2.
The opposing team will pick the factions for your map pick and your team will pick the factions for their map pick. No matter the seeds.
In the playoffs, matches will continue to be best 2 out of 3 matches.
The entire ban phase must be completed before the first map is played. You can not ban maps during the match.
Eligible maps to play:
Carbonite Freeze Chambers
No Original or Base game maps are eligible to be played, Gentlemen's agreements cannot change this rule.
What happens if a player is disconnected or disconnects from the lobby?
In the event that a player on either team disconnects from the lobby it is possible for the lobby to be remade. If the player disconnects before the first cargo is delivered, then the lobby can be remade. If the player disconnects after the first cargo is delivered then no remake can be done. Teams must continue to play with the same number of players as they have.
What happens if a map ties?
If a DLC cargo map ties, the same map is replayed with the same factions. And a sudden death is played
In a sudden death the first team to score a cargo wins the map. Meaning the first team to reach a score of 6-4 will win the map.
More about the sizes of teams:
The default size allowed for a battle in this tournament is 5v5. The maximum that the main game allows for in Cargo is 6v6 so battles will have a maximum of this size.
Any higher than a 5v5 is optional for teams, even if the match is initially planned as higher than a 5v5. As stated above, the default match size is 5v5, meaning you cannot “force” opposing teams to use additional members past the 5 person per team point, even if they have additional members available. Teams can have up to 4 substitutes on their roster.
Additionally teams with a smaller number of players may have a gentleman's agreement to do a 4v4, for example, but teams are not able to force other teams into playing anything smaller than a 5v5.
Teams may change their line up between maps as much as they want, so long as the substitutes are listed on their roster and they are eligible to play.
The battle size can be increased between maps, but only if both teams agree.
No ringing allowed whatsoever. Only players whose PSN account names appear on your team's roster, which was submitted at the beginning of the tournament, may play in tournament matches. This rule may be altered with gentleman's agreements.
Teams may alter their roster as they wish, with no eligibility restrictions as long as it is done before the start of the tournament. For the purposes of this rule, the start of the tournament is when the first match has been played.
Prior to the start of the tournament a team may not add a player to their roster who is currently listed on another team’s roster in the DLC Cargo tournament. The player must leave their original team first.
If a player leaves a team after the tournament has started, they may not play in a match for a different team in this tournament.
Alternate accounts on different teams:
No alternate accounts are allowed on a different team than the one that the owners account is listed on. If it is found that a player is using an alternate account then the player will be immediately banned on all accounts and the teams that said player participated on may also face harsh punishments such Disqualification or map forfeits.
I reserve the right to stream any match I choose to & I also approve of any official SWBC staff to stream the matches provided they let me know they will do so. Any non staff/staff approved streamer is up to the discretion of both teams involved and must be handled by a gentleman's agreement. However never is a team required to let a non staff streamer spectate a match. The staff will supply a 3rd party streamer whenever possible.
The BFC prohibits the use of any mods or devices that could be used to enhance ones performance. Don't cheat (console tuners, rapid fire devices, modded controllers, etc).
Scufs and Razers controllers are permitted in the tournament.
Strikepacks may be used ONLY if mods are disabled, this meaning you may use the paddles as though you were using a scuf.
Any use of the "gentleman's agreement" rule must be clearly documented on both sides and proof of the agreement must be available or else ruling on disputes will default on the standard tournament rules.
Violation of the rules may result in Disqualification for not only players but entire teams if the situation warrants.
