Submitting a forfeit request needs to go through the support chat on the website (must be logged in and adblocker disabled) and must include some sort of proof for us to confirm the forfeit.

Proof submitted must sufficiently show that the opposing team was not ready to play the match or did not have intentions of playing the match.
