It is the team captain/s responsibility to check if all participating players are registered and legal to play all matches within FraggedNation. If you have any suspicion on a player, please send a Support ticket for an admin to look into it.
All forfeits request will be thoroughly researched (Public ladders by FN staff admin and Private ladders by their respective owner) before accepting any request. You can exhaust any other alternative prior to requesting a forfeit by: requesting a change of date/time, requesting an admin to be present, come to an agreement with your opponent under the Pre-Match Comms. Remember, by using this tool it won't guarantee a win to your match rather, it will be opened for review and Admins will have final say whether it is approve or denied.
Be sure to submit a support ticket tied to the forfeit request, adding all the essential infos to update the staff about the issue.

|4. Playing Matches|
Teams/Players must play at least one match per two weeks, starting at the season's start date. Teams not meeting this requirement may be set to inactive, at the Head Admin's discretion.
If your team is set as inactive, simply submit a support ticket when you are ready to have your team reactivated for play on the ladder.
The Crown Holder is awarded to the first person/team who wins first within the Ladder, then awarded to the person to defeat the Crown Holder. The Crown then travels around to Ladder like so.
In the event that the Crown Holder becomes inactive at ANY time for more than one week, the Crown WILL BE reassigned in the proper fashion. (to the winner of the next match on the ladder.)
There will be no exceptions to this rule. The rule stands at all times.
Anytime a match is rescheduled, a change request must be submitted and accepted at least 20 minutes prior to the originally scheduled date and time.
A change request will ONLY be considered valid when;
The change request has been ACCEPTED by the opposing team. Verbal agreements & agreements made outside of fragged nation are NOT considered proof for the purpose of disputing a match.
Request and communications between teams and members MUST BE DONE ON THE WEBSITE, preferably on the pre-match comments page.
If a change request is not submitted in the allotted time and a team or person fails to show up on time then that match will be deleted.
Accepting a Change request will add reputation points to your account, as will submitting a change request that gets accepted. This is to encourage matches to be played by rewarding them with community reputation points that make a member more credible within the community.
A lag test must be conducted for at least 60 seconds prior to any match being played, and any time the host is changed. Failure to conduct a lag test will cause any support tickets turned in to be closed. During the lag test, teams must pick the best player (from the hosting team) to host the match. If issues occur with players being dropped after the test has been conducted, teams should follow the drop player rules of the ladder.
