    • Any top 3 CO-OP run will be required to upload recordings for all players in the game. This is the rule as of 1/9/2024, meaning any runs before that will remain on the leaderboards, regardless if they meet the rule or not.
    • Any top 3 run achieved off stream (NOT LIVE STREAMED), will be required to upload session gameplay (proof of resets). This is meant to help prove that the run is legitimate. This would mean that a player provides at least two videos:
      • The submitted run (which can be edited with text, effects, etc, as long as it does not make the actual run unwatchable).
      • The unedited, raw gameplay. This should be the entire recorded session. This must have the gameplay and the gameplay audio (the video can be unlisted). Proof of restarts NEED to be provided as an additional link in the submission process OR in the description of the video as a link.
      • In Co-op games, at least the host must upload session gameplay.
    • The proof of resets video should not be deleted even after the run is accepted.
    • Keep in mind that staff reserve the right to ask for more footage if needed.
    • As of 04/26/2024, theater mode submissions will no longer be allowed to be used as the main footage of a submission. Players are encouraged to stream or record the raw footage of their game. Although it is recommended for all players to have raw footage for coop submissions, theater mode is acceptable unless you are the host. The host will still be responsible for pregame lobby/showing elixirs and proof of restarts.

    Custom Textures:

  • If you want to be safe, just don’t change anything. 
  • The following texture changes are ALLOWED (Gun textures/camos, viewarms/gloves, and HUD elements (Perk icons. etc))
  • The following texture changes are NOT ALLOWED (Zombie models, map textures, player models, buildable parts, and effects such as explosions, power ups, etc)
  • Be mindful that some textures will change more than one thing. It is your responsibility to make sure that a texture change doesn’t also result in using a banned texture change.
  • Custom Audio files are NOT ALLOWED.

    Timing Method:

  • EE Speedruns use In-Game Time (IGT) as the timing method. This means that if you pause the game, the timer will also pause.

---

BREAKS & DISCONNECTS

  • The player must reconnect in the same round they disconnect before the next round starts, or the game will be void from that point on (also applies if a player leaves the game).

However, using cheats to perform a sleeper (such as God Mode or No Clip) is NOT ALLOWED.

STAFF

  • Staff Members are the people who do volunteer work for the zombies community. Their responsibility is verifying submissions, they determine if games are following the rules and meeting requirements.
