Code of Conduct

The PSL strives to provide a safe, welcoming, inclusive, and fun atmosphere while providing a high-quality gaming experience for all participants. We place a high priority on sportsmanship and expect it to be displayed throughout our leagues, tournaments, events, and online forums (such as Discord channels) at all times.

 

Unsportsmanlike behavior includes any type of online bullying. In addition, we will not tolerate racist, sexist, homophobic or other harmful language within our community. Individuals who violate these standards will be held accountable.

 

At the discretion and judgement of PSL staff, any participant/team who violates the code of conduct will be suspended indefinitely from all PSL activities, pending further PSL review. This suspension will be effective immediately. Any players suspended will be removed from their PSL Esports league, tournament, or event and will not receive a refund of any kind. All PSL decisions are final.

 

From within the application, all of our users have the ability to report any inappropriate behavior to their league administrators so that appropriate steps can be taken to address and resolve the issue.

 

League Registration and Setup

All PSL Esports games will be organized through the Mission Control App. Go to our Mission Control website for instructions on how to download the app, find our organization, and sign up for open leagues.

General Rules

  • Players will be allowed to choose any character in Super Smash Bros.
  • The regular season will be between four to six weeks long with the top four players making the playoffs (depending how many players are in the league).
  • Disconnection Rules:
    • If a game lags out, the player who lagged out will forfeit that game in the match.

Schedule and Scores

  • Players will play three matches vs the same opponent in a “league week”. While the league is set to play three matches on a given night, you are able to reschedule your matches through the matchup portal in the Mission Control App.
  • Each match will be a best of three game, meaning whoever wins two games first will get the match.
  • Do not submit scores until your three matches have been completed.
  • At the end of the three matches, one player is to submit the score for the three matches (example 3-0, 2-1, 0-3).
  • Once the scores are submitted, your opponent will receive a push notification asking to confirm the score.
    • We suggest taking pictures of your scores to settle any potential disputes
