WCC - Rules in practice

Here you can find WCC Rules and time schedule per round.

The line up is 4 players.

The captain of each team must be announced (marked in "minitournament sheet") to the organizers no later than the start of the play-off or placement matches.

Substitution of players during team matches is allowed between each 5-minute round.
Once a player has been substituted, that player cannot play again in that team match.

Before every round, team captain (or person nominated by this team) have to fill in startup names in "team sheet" or  "minitournament sheet" what will look like this:

"Home team" can choose which games will be used, e.g. 4 games already in the sector where they have to play or they can choose to exchange games with spare ones.

"Home team" (listed as the first in pair schedule) must fill in names of players first, then another team ("Away team") fills in their names.
After that changes in names are allowed only after the next 5-minute match is played.

Before the start of the first game, "Away team" can choose the side of each individual game.
During whole minitournament players of "Home team" are not changing games and place where they play, but players of "Away team" are rotating. Note rotation of hints in "minitournament sheet" - B1, B2, B3, B4!

In the example below, we can see (marked with red) that in Round 3 "Home team" changed their player A4, but "Away team" changed player B4 in round 4.
If a player of "Home team" wins the rusult field must have "1 - 0", if a player of "Away team" wins - "0 - 1" (see green marks in the example).
If none of the players wins, then the rusult field must have "0 - 0" (see blue mark in the example).
