    Updated Rules:

Overview

Laser Tag a game that pits one group vs another for a period of time to shoot other players, their guns, and their base to accumulate points.  Then afterwards join your team and your opponents at our sponsors to socialize, strategize, and talk about the games!  You won't believe what a workout laser tag is; you'd better work on your cardio.   You'll enjoy a 6 week regular season leading to a championship night.

 

Participating players

  • Each team must have at least 4 players in the game at a time; players arriving late will NOT be able to join a game in progress.
  • If a team’s opponent isn’t able to come up with a legal team of 4 players at the start of the game, the complete team will be awarded a game win and 6500 points for every legal player they had available to play (max 65,000 pts)  
  • If your team wants to substitute a player, follow the rules outlined in the 'subs' section of the FAQ  (FAQ - League Information - Are subs allowed?).
    • Subs must also purchase and use their own game card
    • Sub card names must follow the following format to be counted "team name - sub#"
      • Replace team name with the team name the player is subbing on 
      • Replace # with the number of that sub for that night

        Valid EXAMPLES:    LaserSquad - sub2,    AwesomeAim - sub1,    FortniteLive - sub1

 Rosters

  • You can have as many players as you want on your roster, but the minimum number of players is 10; BSR recommends 12.  (you'll want to make sure you have 10 each week)
  • Additional players, including players who register as free agents, can be added to the roster anytime until the third week of the season.
  • Captains are responsible for the conduct of teams. This means they’ll need to make sure all players are legal and conform to league play standards.
  • Teams caught with illegal players or subs will lose all games for that night.
    • If this happens twice, that team will be excluded from the playoffs.
  • All players must meet league player requirements. (FAQ - League Information - Player Requirements)
  • All players must wear their league tshirts to participate. (FAQ - League Information - What if I paid late and have not received a league tshirt or forget my league tshirt one night?)
  • From time to time for various reasons players may become upset and curse, complain, and more.  When this occurs, our staff will respond and take actions from issuing a warning, to taking a time out, up to ejecting a player form the game.  For more info reference our FAQ. (FAQ - League Information - Ejections)
  • Team captains can request the referee for a roster check on thier opponents.  The roster check must be requested before the game begins.  Exception: a player who showed up and joined in after the game began, in this case the team captain needs to request the check when that new player first enters the game.
