Disciplines currently offered by the High School Esports League are as follows:
“Solos” - Solo in a duo queue. Both players will queue up together as a duo in the same match. * Fortnite for the Fall Major will be run in the Solo game mode *
The higher seed will create the match lobby. Players are encouraged to document proof of their match to aid in any potential match disputes.
Players should have their matchmaking region set on automatic. The higher seed player/team will invite the lower seed player/team to a lobby which is set to the appropriate game mode: Duos for the “Solos” discipline, In the event that an incorrect game mode is used, the match must be stopped and reset. Previously played games with incorrect formats will not count towards the series. Players will play until the game ends (as defined below), and the winner will be determined based on the win condition for the discipline specified in 19.2.5.
A game ends when all players are no longer standing or the Victory Royale screen appears.
Players may still score eliminations after they are no longer standing (traps, grenades, etc.). Any eliminations that occur after the game ends will not count towards a players’ score.
Standing Player Definition
A player is considered standing if they are not downed or eliminated. Thus, if a player is downed or eliminated, they are considered not standing.
Matches are played as a best of 3 in the Regular Season, best of 5 in the Playoffs and best of 7 for Finals.
The player who has the most eliminations will win the round. If both players have the same amount of eliminations at the end of a round then the last player standing will win the round. In the event where both players have the same number of eliminations and are standing until the same time, the player who got the last elimination will win the round. Any further ties will result in the replay of the round in question.
