Certain Competitions require you to be a part of a team, such as our 3v3 and 5v5 Ladders. In these cases, you must either join or create a team of your own to compete.

  5. You will now be taken to a new window where you may add and assign roles to your players.
  6. Some competitions may require a minimum of 5 team members, some may require 6 and some may require as low as 1.
  7. When assigning roles, remember that only “Clan Owners”, “Team Captains” and “Team Vice-Captains” may enter teams into our competitions.

Now that were done with the boring bits, we can head into the fun stuff!


Entering Competitions

  1. To enter a competition, head to the specific competition page and select the “Enter Team” button to open up the “Enter Team” window.

    *NB*. You must be logged into the Orena website to enter competitions.

  2. Once the “Enter Team” window is open, select your team in the drop down menu, followed by selecting “Enter Team”.

    *NB*. Make sure every member of the team has their full “Game Information” updated for the game they will be playing in the competitions.

  3. Once entered into the selected competition, you will be given a set schedule from an Orena “Tournament Administrator”, unless you have entered an Orena “Ladder”.

Competing in Ladder Competitions

  1. If you have entered a “Ladder”, the “Clan Owner”, “Team Captain” or “Vice-Captain” must return to their “User Dashboard” and Select the “Ladder” tab.
  2. Once in the “Ladder Tab” the above mentioned roles can add “Available Dates” to be challenged on. A team must select a minimum of Three “90 Minute” periods per 7 day week to be challenged in order to be activated.
  3. If a team is not activated, they will not be challengeable or be able to issue challenges.
  4. Once a team has set the required minimum weekly “Available Dates”, they can begin challenging other teams on the “Ladder” page or be challenged by other teams.
  5. Once a challenge has been accepted, the Captains or Vice-Captains of the opposing teams must get in-contact via the provided Game ID’s or Messenger Info available in every players profile to organize the match or create the game lobby.
  6. For Counter Strike: Global Offensive, teams may head “HERE” to view available Orena servers. For other available games listed on the Orena website, users must create their own private game lobbies with the systems provided in the game your team will be playing.

Forfeits

Once challenged, a team may forfeit a “Ladder Match” although this will award the opposing team with a default victory. A default victory will have the same effects on a players or teams ranking as normal match. Meaning the winning team will gain ranking points whereas the Losing team will lose ranking points.
