Reminders to team leaders:
We are looking for some awesome gameplay clips to feature on YouTube, so make sure your players are recording! You can submit clips here. There's a number of ways to record, just make sure they are high quality. Personally, I think NVIDIA makes this pretty easy with the GeForce Experience application. You can use the Instant Replay feature to record up to the previous 20 minutes of your gameplay. Right after something awesome happens, just press Alt+F10 to record the previous X minutes to a video.
Remember, each team is allowed 1 pause per match in the event that a player drops. This pause should not last longer than 5 minutes. Do not abuse this rule. Doing so might result in your team losing the map or match.
Every team is REQUIRED to use the Match Comm panel to coordinate matches. Failure to do so may result in an undesirable outcome for your team in the event of a dispute.
Team Leaders can access the Match Comms from 2 locations:
a.) While logged in as a Team Leader: by clicking on Match List > View Match Details from your Team Leader Homepage.
b.) While logged in as a Player: by clicking on the yellow "Match Details" button on your Player Homepage.
