If you play that game, it will be considered a valid game and you won't have the ability to ask for a referee if you lose it. If you don't accept wrong settings, please immediately stop the game, ask your opponent to set them correctly, and if needed, ask for a referee.

Connection / disconnection
The player on the top in the bracket has to host the game and must therefore create and invite his opponent once the match is generated.
If you are unable to join, please try these:
Restart the game
Restart the console
Reboot your router
If none of these actions work, the game will unfortunatelly be canceled, and both players will be forfeited
Any disconnection will lead to a forfeit. (For a BO3 final, this only concerns the current game)
In case of a disconnection due to the EA servers, the game will pick up where it stopped, with the same scores as when it crashed
You will therefore play the remaining time,
Please make sure to make a video clip at the end of that time in case your game would be contested.
PS: A disconnection due to EA servers will be taken into account only in case no points were awarded to two players
