Landing in the same location as your opponents, stealing loot, following them to try to steal their eliminations are all viable strategies and will not be considered sabotage unless intentional team damage is dealt.

4. Tie-Breakers

a.    If at the end of the series both teams have the same number of eliminations then the tie-breaker will be most damage over the entire series. If niether team can produce screenshots of previous games and cannot confirm most damage over the series then it will be considered most damage from the last game only.

b.    If most damage also results in a tie (extremely unlikely) then any team that was responsible for the last elimination to win a game throughout the series will be considered the winner. If neither team achieved this or results are again tied then the last team to survive on the final game will be declared the winner.

c.    If all tie-breaker considerations are still tied then a final game will be replayed until a winner is found.
