PLAYER COLLUSION / THROWING GAMES

In the event of a “Game Session has ended” due to disconnect of server, both players will restart the best of 5 game. It will be the responsibility of the player that got disconnected from server to connect his opponent within 5 minutes. In a matter where a player intentionally disconnects then that player will forfeit the entire game, not just a round. Screenshots are advised in a matter of dispute which can be uploaded via match-up live chat at Smash.gg.
