Battlefield V – 4v4 Rush

ESB rules are developed together with some of the top Battlefield teams that are active in our events. With Battlefield V changing regularly, we try to make sure that our rules are updated regularly to reflect these changes.

We want to thank Jordy, Catalyst, Prince, Brett, and CodeName_Deus for the work put into developing this new format and ruleset over the past few months.
A special thank you also goes out to our testers: OscarPL, Berg, Naxo, BrandonPR, and Faccia.

IMPORTANT: Please note that this ruleset is still work-in-progress. There will likely be changes to it over the coming month as we start testing it on a larger scale. Don’t forget to provide your feedback and to check the changelog regularly to see what has changed.

    • Please keep in mind that the Reinforcement Gadget and Vehicles should be OFF, so unless the server is incorrectly configured, these infractions shouldn’t happen.
    • Important note: Grenades have been moved to this section for 4v4 Rush.
  • If a team violates a WEAPONS / COMBAT ROLES restriction, a 1 Objective Penalty per BANNED Weapon / Combat Role will be applied.
    • (This means that getting a kill with a – banned weapon doesn’t cost your team the map)
    • Accumulating three (3) BANNED Weapon / Combat Role violations in the same sector of the same map, will cause a map forfeit for the team in violation.
  • If a team violates a CLASS restriction, a 1 Objective penalty will be applied for every 10 seconds in which the violation occurs.
    • This means that accidentally spawning with an extra class doesn’t cost your team the game as long as you redeploy right away.
    • Accumulating three (3) CLASS restriction violations within the same map (2 sides) will cause a map forfeit for the team in violation.
    • Video proof is required for each incident.
      • Videos must be at least 10 seconds long and must show the scoreboard for the duration of the infraction.
  • If a team violates the A-B objective arming/destroy order, they will forfeit the map the violation occurs on.
    • A reminder: All sectors must be played with an A-B order. This means that you may not arm/destroy the B objective until you have first destroyed the A objective in that same sector.
  • Teams will be required to report and provide proof of any rule infraction(s) at the end of the map in which the infraction occurred. Failure to do so can possibly void any penalty for the opposing team.

1.4 Scoring

Each Map is composed of two rounds (sides). Each team gets to play as both the attacker and the defender on each map.

Scoring is based on overall sectors. The team with the highest amount of sectors won at the end of both rounds wins the map.

All sectors must be played with an A-B order. This means that you may not arm/destroy the B objective until you have first destroyed the A objective in that same sector.

If sectors are tied at the end of the map, here at the tie-breakers:

  • #1 – Armed Objectives: Each sector is made up of 2 Objectives, teams will compare the number of objectives destroyed by each team. The team with the most objectives destroyed wins the map.
  • #2 – Time left on Final Sector: If Armed Objectives are tied as well, compare the time left on the final sector while playing as the attackers. The team with the most time left wins the map.
  • #3 – Tickets left on Final Sector: If Time Left is tied as well, compare the tickets left on the final sector while playing as the attackers. The team with the most tickets left wins the map.
    • Tie-breakers #2 & #3 are for Best of 1 events only. For Best of 2, 3, and 5 events, Maps can result in a tie.
