HCT RULES


  1. Every player in any ESGA Challenger Cup must follow OFFICIAL COMPETITION RULES. Also, pay big attention to PLAYER HANDBOOK, where you can find any other important information, that you might want to know.
  2. Most important things, that you need to know (you can also read this in the official documents above):
    a. If a player makes it in finals of any Challenger Cup, so he is qualified for Challenger Finals Tournament, he can not participate in any other Challenger Cup during that season again. Because he is already qualified, so he would only occupy that spot and other players would have lesser chance to get in the tournaments.
    b. Every player must respect and follow the "PLAYER CONDUCT" which can be found in the "PLAYER HANDBOOK".
