Gamer.LK Ranked Competitive Rules

Last modified: 13 October 2023

This page contains the game-specific rules for Gamer.LK Rainbow Six Siege tournaments. These rules must be followed in conjunction with the General Competitive Rules of Gamer.LK Ranked Tournaments.


The General Competitive Rules can be found here. The general rules listed there apply to all gaming titles and all teams/players who register for any Gamer.LK Competitive tournament are expected to follow them.


The tournament bracket used (single elimination/double elimination/group stage) will be decided by the Organizer and announced on the Tournament Announcement posted on Gamer.LK. The Organizers will make every effort to have a Best of 3 semi-finals and finals but depending on time constraints this may change at the discretion of the Organizers, in discussion with Gamer.LK. The Gamer.LK Ranking system will be used for the purpose of seeding to make the draws as and when needed. No other ranking will be considered.


All teams and players are required to join the Sri Lanka Rainbow Six Siege Community Facebook group to stay up-to-date with the latest information regarding the game and the local community.

Gamer.LK Staff reserve the right to decide what will be deemed as an exploit or abuse.

7.2. – Spawnkilling / Spawnpeaking
Killing somebody who already spawned, moved out of cover or is spawnrushed is considered spawnpeaking and will not be rated as glitching / bug using.

7.3. – Use of Third Party Softwares
The use of any third-party addons, hooks, programs or wrappers that interact with or alter the game or its client, its appearance or behaviour for the purposes of gaining an unfair advantage is prohibited. Exceptions: Third party voice communication software such as (but not limited to) Teamspeak are allowed.

7.4. – Impersonations
Impersonating an eligible player by attempting to alias as them, using their Battle Net account or by any other method is prohibited and will result in the aliasing player and the player they are aliasing as being removed from the tournament.

7.5. – In-game names
Each team member must have his/her primary nickname or something very similar as his ingame name during all matches to be easily identifiable for referees, broadcasters, and viewers. What counts as similar is for the Gamer.LK Staff to decide. The only additional information allowed in a player’s in­game name is clan tags or sponsor names. Team members are kindly requested to limit the use of profanity on in-game names/aliases as this degrades the value of the team and the tournament as well.

7.6. – Monitor System Status (MOSS)
Every player must use Monitor System Status (MOSS) to play the tournament and keep their MOSS reports for the duration of the tournament.

Each team is granted a total of 10 minutes pause time during the match. The game must not be resumed before both teams agree with it. If total pause time of 10 minutes runs out, the game has to be resumed, no matter if the issue got fixed or not. If one team refuses to resume the game, the oppose team will receive a default win.

In all situations, a rehost of the game will be applicable but this may change depending on the situation.

  • If a player’s PC crashes or a player disconnects, the game must be paused. The disconnected player must return to the game
  • If multiple players disconnect, the server crashes or lobby shuts down or network fails and there is no match to be found when retrying, the match which got affected must be replayed.
  • In the event of a time issue, Gamer.LK Staff will decide accordingly.

  • Any behavior or action that Players can perform to create a situation where they can see or shoot at an opponent without the opponent being able to see them or attack/shoot at them as normal.
  • Blocking window vaulting with a destructible shield.
