All matches must be played on the SC Field map. Playing through a iOS/Android emulator on laptop or desktop is allowed. Playing with a game controller is allowed. Players must both agree to the score of the match after it has been played. In case of dispute, screenshots of the end stats screens will be requested by the admin team.
