Spectators (including streamers) aren't allowed by default except both players agree with that before match starts.

That means any participant can play match on the password-protected server without spectators (streamers) without explanation its decision.

Mapvoting

Mapvotes will be done before the match starts. In case of “Best-of-Three” (Bo3) or “Best-of-Five” (Bo5) mode a referee has to be involved.

For "Best-of-Three" (Bo3) each participant eliminates one (1) maps (A-B) with A being the participant that is mentioned first (1st) and B being the participant that is mentioned second (2nd) in the matchdetails. The order of the remaining three (3) maps is decided by A picking the first (1st) map and B picking the second (2nd) map of the series. The remaining map is the third (3rd) map if necessary.

For "Best-of-Five" (Bo5) each participant alternately picks one (1) map until only one (1) map is left (A-B-A-B) with A being the participant that is mentioned first (1st) and B being the participant that is mentioned second (2nd) in the matchdetails. The remaining map is the fifth (5th) map if necessary.

Short overview for the mapvoting procedure:
  • Bo3: veto (A-B); pick (A-B); 3rd map remains
  • Bo5: pick (A-B-A-B); 5th map remains
  • A is mentioned first (1st) in the matchdetails
  • B is mentioned second (2nd) in the matchdetails
