An Eco-Round consists of buying very little items, approximately spending less than $1000. When buying on an Eco it's most common to purchase either grenades or kevlar. In different scenarios some players attempt buying a semi-expensive gun to do a bigger impact. The main idea is to save your money for the following round so you and your team can buy together.

What is ELO and how does it work?

The Minestrike Competitive League now uses an ELO ranking system to rank teams into five separate tiers. An ELO ranking system is a mathematical method of calculating the skill and placement of each team in the league. The highest tier achievable in the league is Tier 1, and the lowest is Tier 4.

When two team face each other, the winner will gain a certain amount of ELO, and the losers will lose ELO. The amount of ELO gained and lost depend on the teams that are playing. There will also be ELO reductions to teams that receive blacklists and fail to complete required and placement matches.

#52

What if a player on my team gets banned before the tournament?

That is up to them and you (team leader) to figure out. We do not handle appeals or any of that sort, you'll need to appeal and hope it's removed before the tournament starts.

This is why we have you apply with 15 players so you have extras just in case.
#61

What do we do when we don't have enough players for a game?

If it's a casual/friendly you can just ask people to sub in. It doesn't matter if they're in your team or not.

If it's a league scrim, you then have 15 minutes after the original game start time (the referee can extend this time depending on the circumstance) to get 5 players for the game. Otherwise you'll have to either forfeit, which will result in the other team winning the game, or you can play a 3v5/4v5 against the other team. You're still able to get subs from your team to make it a 5v5.
#48

What do I do if I think a player is cheating in a casual and/or a league scrim?

Whenever you find that a player seems suspicious just call for a Screenshare. A Screenshare is the method MSCL refs use to find out if a player is cheating in the game. (Via Skype/Join.Me). Whenever a Screenshare is called upon it is heavily recommended to get a ref that knows how to SS and/or the managers of the league, MSCL Director, or even the Global Director. However if the case is ever to happen punishments can be made if somebody who wasn't mentioned above brings up strong detailed evidence to get the player blacklisted.
#29

What are the roles?

Each of the roles, for example, "Rifler, AWP, Support, Lurker and Entry", are all roles that people play as when you are on a team. Usually. you put your player that is the best at using rifles as a rifler. You usually put people who use a sniper rifle to the best of their ability as an AWPer. You don't need to fill all these roles to in order to join the league, but they are helpful.

Required games are issued by the league staff to be completed by the teams involved.
