  • Team-mates can vote either for or against the decision to forfeit by typing “/yes” or “/no” respectively. If the decision to forfeit has been called by one of your team-mates, you too can vote the same way.

  • Once all the players in your team vote “Yes”, the match will be forfeited. Voting “No” will have the opposite effect.
