Zombiegamer operates a ‘fair play’ policy.

Should you pre-register and arrive late for your scheduled match (attempts to accommodate will be made) your opponent will be issued with a default win. Should that be in the loser’s bracket, you will be eliminated.

No cursing, shouting, bumping or distracting your opponent.

Pause the game only if you have the ball and have given your opponent a heads up if you are going to pause. Both players must agree they are ready to resume the match.

The ball must be passed back once before you can cross in to the opponents half, you cannot run in to his half straight from kick off.

If you set up your controller, please save it on temporary assigned slot.

It is up to you as player to check your controls before the game starts, the admins and organisers will not be held liable for controllers that are not set up.

Should a console freeze alert one of the admins. If it is still in the 1st half the game will be replayed full but the game continues from the score upon which the screen froze. If it froze in the 2nd half the game is restarted and only one half of the game is played and the score is as it was upon freezing of the console.
