    The player on the left side is instructed to create the game lobby. Once the lobby is set up, player A must invite player B to the game lobby using the Fighter ID  provided by player B.
  • Player B:
    The player on the right side must accept the game invitation and ready up.

Score Submission

  • At the end of the match, both players are asked to submit scores along with a screenshot of the match result. Before submitting the scores, players must make sure they are accurate. 
  • Once one player has submitted the score, the other player will be asked to confirm that score; if the score is not correct, you can open a dispute.
    [How to report a score & Make a dispute]


Once your opponent has reported the score, players are allowed to make a dispute by choosing the “This Is Wrong” button when presented with the reported score. The admin team will review the disputed scores and make a decision based on uploaded evidence, after which, if you still have concerns. you should address your inquiries to support@rewiredfest.com or message us through live chat.


  • When the opponent gets disconnected, the remaining player must not leave the lobby and will be responsible for inviting the opponent back to the lobby. Unless 5 minutes have passed and the opponent is still not coming back then you will win by default.
  • The disconnecting player will lose the entire game not only that specific round, the disconnected player must attempt to reconnect within 5 minutes or you will be forfeited
    Ex. The game is best-of-three, if you disconnected the first game you will lose 1 game then you can reconnect to continue the second game.
  • In case if the disconnected player is not the host, you can reconnect to the lobby by accepting the same invite that was sent by the host
  • If the disconnecting player did not come back within 5 minutes, the win will go to the opponent. The remaining player must capture a screenshot of the lobby that included a message that the opponent has left the lobby and upload it as a match evidence
