  • Match scores

After finished match, the team who provided the score first needs to wait for its acceptance by the opponent.

In case a match has been reported by any of the participating teams related to the score, it is critical to provide evidence of the real score.

In case the score of a match can not be set by participants on their own, it will be submitted by an Administrator.

A match is officially finished when the score is accepted by both teams or Administrator.

If nobody reports the match and the score is not going to be accepted in time (before Deadline) both sides are disqualified from the Tournament.


  • Opponent Rating

After every match the opponent can be overly rated using the ‘Rating’ option considering fair play, communication and behaviour during the match. The score of the match should not be the only criterium being considered for rating the opponent. It can be done only by a person who signs the team up to the Tournament.


  • Chat on a match card

Each match has its own dedicated chat visible and usable for administration and all players who participate in that specific match.


  • Get Ready

The “Get Ready” button is there to confirm participation in a tournament. It’s active and clickable only when it flashes red. If it flashes red, but text on the button says ‘Game On’, it is not clickable.

Lack of confirmation of participation by not pressing the “Get Ready” button results in player or a team being excluded from the tournament.

The “Get ready” function will be made available at a certain time before the competition starts, it will be given by an administrator.

Confirmation of participation by clicking “Get Ready” is required only by the users signing up the team to a tournament (Leader / Co-Leader ).

  • Deadline

The “Deadline Clock” specifies the time participant has to upload his score. It can be found on match card.

In an event where the score isn’t confirmed by one of the teams after the “deadline”, on which team proceeds in a tournament decides the score already uploaded on a match card.

In an event where neither of the teams uploads the score the system automatically notifies the administrator, which will decide on the response towards the teams.

  • Support

Each tournament has its individual support. In an event where Administration needs to be contacted in matters relating to a tournament, we recommend to use the “Support” on a Tournament Page. Those messages will go directly to Administrator of a tournament, which will decrease the waiting time to get a response. You can also send a meesage to admin@estiny.pro to directly contact the Administrator..


  • Individual Rules of Tournament

Each individual tournament has its own specific set of rules dependent on a game, which if broken will result in penalties being distributed on players or teams and can result in prize not being granted to those teams.

Rules of tournament regard every participant taking part, both team and individual matches.

Rules of tournament are available on Tournament Page in a tab named “Terms”.


  • Tournament with constant prize pool

Tournament with constant prize pool will not change throughout the course of its existence, once the prize is set, regardless of home many players will participate.

Tournament is generated at the end of “Get Ready” process. During generating of tournament bracket, teams will be randomly assigned in places to keep the right structure of the tournament,

Starting Date and time of a match in tournament bracket is the date and time where the score should be uploaded as per “Deadline” showing on a match card.
