FIFA21: The Open Tourney

FIFA21 IVG Open Tourney

The OC has planned to host IVG Open Tourney in the coming days. The details of the tourney are as follows:

Each participant must be aware of all the rules listed below. Insufficient knowledge of the rules cannot be used as an excuse for breaking the rules.

The entire tournament is based on fair-play practised by the participants because not everything can be regulated by the OC.




1. General:
1.1 Open only for IVG members.
1.2 Dates: 16 July 2021 - 08 Aug 2021.
1.3 Platform: PS4/PS5.
1.4 Game: FIFA21 for PS4. Players are allowed to play on PS5 as long as they use PS4 version of the game.
1.5 Places will be secured through the "first come, first served" basis.
1.6 Number of participants: Unlimited.
1.7 Please register only if you are going to be available for the entire duration of the tournament.
1.8 Please register only if you think you can keep your interest in the league even after losing several games. We have seen in the past, many people start losing their interest in the league midway through when they cannot get as many wins as they expected and then they stop playing rest of their games.


2. Tournament rules:
2.1 Teams and team star ratings: Only club teams can be chosen and no restrictions on team star ratings.
2.2 Tournament format: League stage (16 July 2021 - 04 Aug 2021) and then Knockout stage (05 Aug 2021 - 08 Aug 2021).
2.3 League stage: All players play in 1 group like a standard league tournament.
2.4 Fixture details: Every player will play 2 games against each opponent in their group.
2.5 Host of a match should be decided mutually by both players. There's no away goal rule.
2.6 Basic football points system applies to the league stage (Win = 3, Draw = 1, and Loss = 0).
2.7 Tiebreaker for League stage will be:
1) Goal difference
2) Goals scored
3) Head-to-head record in their match
4) Clean sheets
*If still equal, a play-off match between those 2 players will be played, if it ends in a draw, please continue until we have a winner.
2.8 Knockout stage details: On completion of league stage top 4 players will play knockout round and fixtures for knockout stage will be like:
Semi finals: 1v4 and 2v3 will have two legs and NO AWAY GOAL rule.
Final: Winners of semifinals will play the final, a single match.
2.9 As we know, lag is integral part of online gaming, there will be lag in almost every match so be prepared to play in lag if it appears. But, if there's an unplayable lag (and not just the normal lag) in a match, players can restart their match with mutual agreement. Try to change the host, it might help. Please be aware if your opponent has scored a goal in the meantime it will stand. For example, player A is facing lag while playing against player B. Player B has the possession and player A presses pause button the game will only stop after a foul/ball goes out of play. If player B scores a goal in the meantime. In the next game player A should give player B his one goal advantage back by scoring an own goal then play the rest of the match normally. But, and it's a big but, it is advised to all players if you have the possession in the early stages of a match and opponent presses the pause button, like in first 10 minutes game-time, please pause the match & wait (remember fair-play?) and if you don't receive any message from opponent regarding lag, just play normally after the pause times out completely. I know it's quite a long point but it has to be explained to avoid any conflict/dispute arising later on.
2.10 If a disconnection happens, consider every match as 93-minute long (it includes the 3 minutes of the injury time also) please play the remaining minutes in the next game. For example, if a DC happens at 62' in a game. You should play 31 minutes (93'-62' = 31') in the supplementary game. The first 31 minutes will count. There's no need to play the entire duration of the supplementary game. It is important to understand this point, I hope it's clear to everyone.

3. Registration:
3.1 To register, please provide your details in following format:
A. Name : Bharat Kumar

5. Match playing and result/score reporting:
5.1 Players are required to play with the PSN ID they have specified at the time of registration.
5.2 Matches need to be completed within the days mentioned. Start time is 00:00 on 16-07-2021 and end time is 23:59 on 08-08-2021. Any results posted outside of this window will not count.
5.3 Every player must play all their games, failing to do so may result in warning/ban from the tournaments organised by the OC.
5.4 Players are free to communicate through any medium with mutual understanding (IVG/PSN/WhatsApp). From the past experience, we have realised that to set up a match timing WhatsApp is the best medium. We will make a group on WhatsApp. However, it's not compulsory to join but you may not get realtime response from your opponent here in the thread. And, you will not be able to play all your matches.
5.5 It is important both players must post the scores on the same day after finishing the game in the tournament thread.
5.6 If possible, please play both games against an opponent on the same day. You two may not be able to come online at the same time again.
5.7 Tables will be updated from time to time. You must keep track of your W-D-L and GF-GA stats. In case, I make a mistake it might cost you a few places in the standings.

6. Discipline rules:
6.1 We take the discipline very seriously. Guilty may be disqualified and/or banned from the future tourneys hosted by the OC.
6.2 Please play fair and be nice to your fellow IVG members.

6.3 Last man sliding tackles from behind is not allowed in our tourneys.
6.4 Decision of the OC will be final.
6.5 Some OC members may not be present actively here in the thread but they will be around if a situation/dispute arises.
6.6 Abusing, bullying and/or threats against the other players are not tolerated.
6.7 Basically, nothing bad is tolerated.

Message from the OC (Dan, Azaan, Surya and Bharat):
All the best to all players from us.
