- You will have to join the Discord before the submission deadline passes, The discord will be the main place for interaction before and during the event.
- For Console submissions, you have to be able to stream through OBS or similar software (xsplit et.c) so sadly we will have to reject any submission streamed directly from Console.
- There is a limit of submissions per runner of 5, and a maximum of 3 categories per game
- All submissions require your own video. Either your PB-Run or a good run with informative commentary.
- Please state your availability as best as possible when submitting. Incorrect availability times may result in an incorrect time-slot, so make sure your availability is correct, as we cannot guarantee your run after incorrectly setting your available times. We will do our best, but cannot guarantee it. The shorter the availability window are, the harder it is for us to make this work too.
- Usage of Face Camera is not required, but is highly preferred.
- Emulator runs are allowed as long as emulator is not banned. (this means that games that hide emulator from the leader-board but don't ban them are also allowed)
- If you want to add donation incentives for your run we would be more than happy, just be sure to mention it in your submission or contact us directly.
Your Responsibilities: Be prepared, if problems arise please let any of the staff know in good time (DM in Discord to any of the staff members) so we can attend to the issues, act decently (we have no problem with you swearing or anything, just don't be a jerk & refrain from talking politics), keep an eye on the schedule if any changes will occur (also check Discord from time to time for the same reasons), Be ready for your run before the previous one ends.
If you have any questions at all, don't hesitate to contact any of the staff members!
