Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

What do I do if my opponent does not respond to my reschedule request?

If your coach has not responded to your request, nor your messages in Lobby Chat or, contact the Customer Experience team so that PlayVS assist further.

What if both coaches want to reschedule, but cannot agree to a new time?

If both teams are unable to coordinate on a new date and time for a reschedule, the original match time will be upheld, and our system will assign a loss to both teams within 48hrs of that original match time.

What if the date I want to reschedule to is not provided?

If the date you wish to reschedule is not provided, then that date is outside of the window to reschedule, and will not be possible for this match.

My opponent denied my request, and now we have to forfeit - How does this impact my players?

A team that forfeits their match will be required to join the Match Queue in the following week. Once a team has forfeit three or more matches, they will be declared ineligible to compete in playoffs, no matter the team’s placement in Standings at the end of the season.
