(“PUBG & PUBG MOBILE AFBN RULES”)
Teams may agree to the style of match before start time (seasonal team/solo or private match). If no agreement or decision is made, the default competitive mode will be PRIVATE MATCH.
THE BASIC GIST OF PRIVATE MATCH TEAM PLAY
Two (2) teams of 4 rostered players representing each competing team, all join the same custom game lobby using the settings listed below. Captains can agree on a lower player count, example being 1v1 or 2v2 etc.., however if no agreement is met then the match will continue 4 versus however many players are present, even if it’s just one.
Once match begins, opposing players are to mute one another.
Both Teams must not jump at the same time. Challenging team jumps at the very beginning of Plane Drop. Challenged team jumps near, or at the end.
The two teams of four will compete to see which team dominates the other. If in the event there is no clear victor, the team with more players remaining is the winner. If in the event of a tie, you will restart that game.
Each match will be a race to three (3) games. This means, the first team to have three (3) accumulated game wins… Wins the match.
THE BASIC GIST OF SEASONAL SOLO/TEAM PLAY
