- Both teams are permitted a maximum of 3 pauses in each match(not per map).
- Each pause is limited to 5 minutes, but combined will not surpass 10 minutes.
How you use the pauses are up to you, but cannot in any circumstances be used within the first 10 minutes of the match.
If the other team permits it, a longer pause can be used.
Failure to unpause or go over the allowed time will result in penalties.
