Tournament Rules

1.    Registration

a.    All participating teams are required to have registered via this page and must have entered correct and accurate information about the team.

b.    Any team that tries to compete with a player that is not registered in their team will be disqualified.

c.    Upon registration you must also join the Tainted Minds Tournament discord server linked at the bottom of this page for all communications about the tournament. If you are not in the Discord server you will be considered unreachable during the tournament and will be disqualified from competing.

2.    Scheduling

a.    All players have 15 minutes to join the game host’s lobby at the start of the tournament or since the completion of the previous round. After 15 minutes the game will be started with or without all players.

b.    If a player fails to join the lobby in time they will forfeit that game and earn 0 points. Missing players may join the lobby for the next game.

c.    At the end of each game if there are any players missing from the lobby, the game host is required to wait 5 minutes between games before starting the next game.

d.    Any player may request in writing via the tournaments Discord channel a 5 minute break between games. If that player is not ready to play within 5 minutes the lobby will start regardless.

e.    If a player disconnects during the game the game may be restarted only if the game is still in the waiting period or before players are in the drop helicopters.

f.     If a disconnection occurs during gameplay the game is to continue and the disconnected player may reconnect for the following game.

g.    Once the bracket is released players will be required to add at least one player that is already in the game lobby. Failure for players to make effort to join the game or for players already in the lobby to refuse to assist another player from joining will be disqualified from that game.

3.    Reporting

a.    At the end of each game teams will submit their place and number of eliminations. It is recommended that you take a screenshot of your in-game Action Summary Report to prove your score if a dispute between teams arises.

b.    Submitting false score reports will result in disqualification and a ban from future tournaments.

Points System

1st Place – 5 Points
2nd Place – 4 Points
3rd Place – 3 Points

Each full-elimination is worth 1 point.

The final team standings are to be determined by the total points across all 5 games.


Teams will be randomly drawn into 2 Groups of 6 teams in each (Groups A and B). Each Group will host their own game lobby and all participants of that Group will join and play in that lobby.

Each Group will play 3 games of Blackout with each team being responsible to record and submit their placing and number of eliminations after each game.

At the end of all 3 games, the top 3 teams determined by the Point System from each Group will progress to the final game lobby consisting of the top 6 teams.
