THE RULES OF FLIPKART GAMING ONLINE CHAMPIONSHIP
The Flipkart Gaming Online Championship comes with a strict set of rules. Follow these instructions as a first step to prepare for your qualifier and read ahead to know what you stand to win.
The tournament bracket for each game will be announced every week. Once the qualifier brackets are out, you will know who your opponents are and their PSN IDs, or the screen names they’re known by online.
Before you begin playing the game, make sure all your gaming gear is in working condition. If you are competing in FIFA, ensure that the power cable of your PlayStation 4 is fully functional, and that you’ve charged its DualShock 4 controller using a micro-USB cable. And don’t forget to power up your wi-fi for the best connectivity.
Sorted? Good! Now you can start the game by adding your opponent on PlayStation Network (PSN) — the digital media entertainment service provided by Sony Interactive Entertainment.
In FIFA, the player who scores the best of three against his opponent will be the one to go ahead. A word of caution here: Every team game of 5 players will be having 2 substitutes. A game will not progress without 5 players. If a team has 4 players and opponent has 5 players, then the team with 4 players gets automatically disqualified.
You can check out the dates for the just-announced FIFA qualifiers, quarter-finals, semi-finals and finals, and the detailed rules here.
If you’ve won the match, all you have to do is provide the screenshot or picture of the result and we’ll do our job of updating it.
That’s it for the instructions. Give the Flipkart Gaming Online Championship your best shot and qualify for the next round!
