How To Play: Your team and your opponents will join the same lobby and create a custom game. In the custom game the host will select Search and Destroy; CDL S&D.
Game Hosting: Matches will either be “best of 1”, or “best of 3” and will be displayed on the matches card. If the series against your opponent is a “best of 1” series, Team A will host the match. If your series is a “best of 3” Team A will host match 1, Team B will host match 2. If your “best of 3” series is tied 1-1 then you will play a 3rd game to determine a winner. The individual (1v1 matches), or team (2v2, 3v3, 4v4, 5v5, 6v6) with the biggest margin of victory in either of the first two games will host the final game. (Example, Team A win 6-3 game one. Team B wins 6-5 game two. Team A will host the final game).
Map Selection: Whichever team is hosting will pick the map for their game. If the score is tied 1-1 and teams play a 3rd game, the map will be Crossroads. Teams can use maps multiple times.
Map Options: Armada, Checkmate, Crossroads, Garrison, Miami, Moscow.
