This year rules were changed slightly, but I highly advise that when you are bored, you take a close look at them, as this will be extremely important when signing up and upon getting closer to the date of the NWWC. During the tournament, rules can be updated, but the general basis and ideas will stay the same. Please let me know if you have an questions about them.

5.10 | Matches and map choice are to be scheduled between team captains, and a referee is to be informed at least 24 hours (1 day) in advance. (A referee is either one of the organisers, or someone that the organisers approve as a referee). A match may not proceed without a referee present. Each team may only have one match per week, this allows the statistics to be updated and reduces workload.

If a caster is present, the match will be PRIVATE, and only Casters, YouTubers, Team Members and Referees are allowed in spectator.

5.15 | This year we have two map choices (made by Chicken and Ivan). Captains will have to decide on a map. If both want a different map, then the map will be chosen by the referee (e.g GB captain picks Green Map, but Germany captain picks Sand Map, then the referee will have to say the final word, unless the captains come to a last minute agreement.
5.16 | If a referee cannot be present the match may go ahead, as long as one of the M-NWWC 2019 maps are used, and one of M-NWWC 2019 official casters or youtubers are there to provide video evidence of the match.
