§1 League System
1.00) The season consits of a group stage (round-robin/all-play-all) and a playoff stage (single elemination).

2.00) Group stage:
2.10) The participating teams are randomly devided into two groups.
2.20) The group stage is organized in a single-round-robin system, in which every team plays all others in its group once.
2.30) All matches are played according to the best-of-three (BO3) rules. Thus, the team who wins two maps first, wins the match and receives 3 points.
2.40) Each team picks one map to be played at a league match. A third map will be generated randomly (if needed).
2.50) The team who scores 16 rounds first wins the current map (MR15, not played-out).

3.00) Playoffs:
3.10) At the end of the group stage the top 4 teams in each group qualify for the playoffs. (The number of qualified teams conform with the total number of participating teams, see also §13.2)
3.20) All matches are played according to the best-of-three (BO3) rules. Thus, the team who wins two maps first, wins the match and advances to the next round.
3.30) The first map will be determined by banning maps from the pool. The loser of the first map decides the next map. If a third map is needed, the loser of the second map decides the final map. (BO3)

§2 Schedule
1.00) League matches take place within the predetermined period (14 days) of the current match day.

2.00) A match which has not been played within the prescribed period, can be rated as "No Game" (NG:NG).

3.00) Teams which do not react in the match-comments 48 hours before the end of the prescribed period at the latest will be penalized with a "Default-Loss" in the corresponding match.

§3 Prematch
1.00) The home team (indicated by a home-symbol in the schedule of fixtures) chooses the server.
1.10) If the away team owns a server as well, the second map can be played there.
1.20) In case of a third map, the home team has the right to insist on playing on their server.
1.30) Less server changes during matches are appreciated. Administration efforts are reduced and it is easier for HLTV viewers to keep up with the match.

2.00) Each map starts with a knife round. The winner of the knife round decides whether they want to start as CT or T.

3.00) Both teams must write "ready" before starting the match.

4.00) A team needs at least 4 players to be eligible to start the match.
4.10) Should some players disconnect during the match, the match has to be paused. In case the players are not able to come back, the match must be interrupted and a protest ticket must be sent.

5.00) All participating players have to use their AWFL nick in-game.

§4 Match shifting
1.00) A match shifting is only possible by having the consent of the opponent team.
1.10) Should the opponent team not be giving you consent, they have the right to get a "Default-Win".
1.20) With the consent of the opponent team a match shifting is possible - it is not mandatory, but we would prefer a played match over a protest match.

2.00) In case a opponent does not show up, you have to wait until 20 minutes after the official match-date, make a status screenshot, and open a protest ticket.

§5 Match media
1.00) Every player has to record demos! One demo per half/side (CT/T).
1.10) HLTV-demos are not counted as in-eye demos.

A correct Smoke-Screenshot has to have:
- the scoreboard (TAB in the standard configuration)
- an exploded smoke grenade
- at least one terrorist model and one counter-terrorist model.

Correct Examples: [Screen1] - [Screen2] - [Screen3]

If a player drops during the match or the teams switch servers, a second Smokescreen has to be created and uploaded.
1.30) Smokescreens have to be uploaded 24 hours after the match at the latest.
1.40) Missing or incorrect Smoke-screenshots will be punished according to §12.

2.20) The requested demos have to be uploaded within 48 hours after the official match-date.
2.30) In case a player is not uploading the requested demos in time, the player and his team will be punished according to §12.
2.40) In case a player has not provided any of the requested demos, the opponent team has the right to request a rematch if they like to.
2.50) Should there be two or even three players of the same team fail to upload their demos, the admin-team will confer about this.
2.60) All match-media has to be stored for 21 days and has to be uploaded in case an admin needs it.

4.20) All required Scoreboard- and RCON-Status-screenshots have to be uploaded 24 hours after the match at the latest.
4.30) Infractions may be rejected and punished only by members of both teams involved in the match up to 14 days after the match-date.

1.20) Rematch:

- Lineup change is permitted.

2.00) Accidental server restarts: In case someone restarts the server when the game is live already, the match is interrupted!
2.10) If it should not be possible to continue the match immediately due to technical issues please arrange another date with your opponent.
2.20) The admins will decide about necessary measures if a match cannot be continued, for instance because of human reasons (e.g. flames, insults, rage quits, and more). The admins retain the right to ban a player for a continued match, grant a "Default-Win" (16:00), or set the match to be cancelled (NG:NG) in case of gross violations.
