Hide and go Seek *Specific Rules*
Hide and seek has become a popular custom game mode, unfortunately the rules have never really been put down in quality. So here we go.

Basic rules:
-this game mode is to be played on dominion and in draft mode .
- It lasts 40:00, for this is when hiders win.
-There are 5 hiders and 2 seekers. --The seekers get unlimited lives, hiders get five lives
-Recommended champs to ban,not mandatory, hiders ban, Warwick, twisted fate, lee sin and Ashe
-Seekers ban teemo, Evelyne, shaco and kassadin
-storm shields are allowed
-clairvoyance is not allowed ever for anyone
If you don't know what cc is here is a good link, http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/redirect.php?do=verify&redirect_url=http%3A%2F%2Fleagueoflegends.wikia.com%2Fwiki%2FCrowd_control

Hider rules:
-Hiders can only use cc ,or crowed control, jumps, speedups or heals(as long as it doesn't deal damage).
-Only one warded ability allowed per bush ex.Teemo shroom, traps.
-Absolutely no auto attacking, this goes for Ashe and sejuani. Nautilus is the only exception. Auto attacking will be pardoned the first time, but after that it is -1 life.
-Killing a seeker is strictly prohibited, though a good tactic is to group up and do damage with just cc but killing a seeker is not acceptable and will result in loosing a life.
-Getting Rylia's and using abilities does Not count!
-You may not attack an enemy under 300 health but you can harass them if they are teleporting back and not under 300.
-If you loose all 5 lives you must go to the center of the map or at base, you cannot be on the outer ring or in the jungle.
-You must sell all your items *can keep/buy shoes, guardian angels, or warmogs*.
- If someone happens to go afk, one of his lives will be donated every five mins(chose among each of you who gets it).
-Lives can be given to each other freely, remember to state who gets it each time in the all chat. Seekers might want to mark down how many people have how many lives.
-You cannot go back to base, you can only buy items when you die
-Only two hiders can be in a bush at a time
-Remember that you can all gang together and do damage together
-you can go on the first and second segment of the stone path leading into the base

Seeker rules:
-Must wait until 2:00 mins before going out of their base
-Must recall at -300 health, if you kill while under 300 health the seeker will not loose a life, if you die, the hider will lose a life
-Only one slowing item is allowed for both seekers.
-Revealing items ex. Lightbringer,oracles and hextech sweeper are only allowed at 20:00 mins and only one seeker can have one.
-You cannot attack "dead" people in center.
-hiders get a 30 second grace period after respawning

If someone is a troll just be the better person and surrender, it's just a custom game. Explain why your surrendering and rehost a new game, when rehosting I found it useful to make the title: Hide and Seek rehost, [your champions name]
