Rules

  • The race is free for anyone to join.
  • All players must use 125 fps.
  • The format of the race will be determined by the number of players who sign up. It would most likely be direct eliminations, where the players are randomly paired with each other. If there is a large number of players who sign up, a group stage may be added.
  • Each match will be played on a predefined date. If a player does not show up, he automatically loses the match. If both players don’t show, they both lose.
  • The maps for each round will be chosen by a JumpersHeaven admin.
  • Any jump and fps hacks are prohibited – if you use them, you will be disqualified.
