Standard Tournament Rules



The below set of rules constitute the GameReplays Zero Hour Official Standard Tournament Rules. Where an event is hosted by GameReplays, unless otherwise stated, this set of rules is in effect. They are also applicable to all games played on ClanWars.cc. Anyone found to be in breach of said rules will face a proportionate punishment to be determined by either the event organizer or ClanWars administrator.
  1. All games must be played using a current version of Gentool with upload mode on.
  2. No use of third-party software to gain an advantage, namely maphack.
  3. No intentional disconnecting or mismatching. In the event of an unintentional disconnect or mismatch, the event host will determine whether the match should be replayed or whether one of the players is awarded the victory.
  4. No intentional bug abuse. A bug is defined as ‘an error, flaw or fault in the game that causes it to produce an incorrect or unexpected result, or to behave in unintended ways’.
The most commonly prohibited bugs include:
  • Scud Bug - firing a Scud Storm before the countdown has reached 0:00
  • Tunnel Bug - evacuating units from a tunnel before it completes
  • Supply Drop Zone Bug - receiving money from a SDZ before the countdown has reached 0:00
  • Range Bug - intentionally increasing the firing range of units/buildings. Note: this can occur accidently which would not be punishable
  • Scaffold Unit Bug – creating units from incomplete buildings
  • Worker Building in Garrison Bug - making your worker construct a tunnel, or other building, whilst having it garrisoned within a tunnel, building, or vehicle
  • Capture Building from Inside Bug - capturing buildings with your unit inside of the building
  • Worker Scaffold Bug - forcing a worker inside a scaffold by intentionally placing multiple scaffolds on top of each other
  • Speaker Tower Bug – intentionally enabling units to shoot multiple times with the use of a speaker tower
Please note that this list is not exhaustive, which is to say that simply because a specific bug is not listed above does not mean that it is acceptable. Where certain play could be considered bug abuse the event host will rule appropriately.

In the event that one player is suspected to be intentionally abusing a bug the following should take place:
  • Should Player A do something potentially controversial Player B should continue playing the game until the end.
  • Once the game is complete the replay should be sent to the tournament host who will determine whether the play constitutes intentional bug abuse.
  • If it does, the game is automatically awarded to Player B, regardless of the outcome
  • If it does not, then whoever won the game will be awarded the win.
5. No Scaffold Abuse. Scaffold Abuse is any use of scaffolds which is not one of the following:

- Placing a scaffold with the intent of creating a building.
- Removing GLA scraps at any time and any location on the map.
- Forcing guarding enemy air units within close scaffold proximity to shoot onto the ground.
- Placing for survival purposes to remain in the game, but as not to interfere with enemy units or buildings.
- Placing scaffolds to trick opponent's waypoint scouting efforts.
- Placing scaffolds to remove destroyed buildings or flatten terrain.
- Placing scaffolds to protect Workers/Dozers/Trucks.

For the avoidance of doubt, it therefore follows that the following is prohibited:

- Preventing units or buildings from shooting with scaffolds
- Removing money crates with scaffolds
- Detonating demo traps with scaffolds

6. Voice Chat Abuse. In team games, once a player is defeated, they must exit the game immediately. This is to prevent a player from being able to share information with teammates.

7. Unsportsmanlike Conduct. All participants should conduct themselves in a sportsmanlike manner. Event hosts may take action where a player is determined to be acting in an unacceptable fashion.

Good luck and have fun Generals.

Please familiarize yourself with these rules. They will be in effect in most tournaments including the World Series 2021. The topic for now is placed in the General Discussion but it will be moved and pinned in the Tournament Forum in the future.

Disclaimer: These are NOT the Fair Play rules but the rules for Tournaments hosted by GameReplays.org and ClanWars.cc unless stated otherwise.

I think on this point it is quite possible to make exceptions to the streamer's partner - since the audience will know whether the friend prompts or not.

Definitely not.

It's very easy for the streamer to set up the recording to ignore voicechat from TeamSpeak/discord etc.

Also if the streamer does, they can simply stop their voice from being recorded too, which then looks like they sit in silence.

Also, I'm surprised about the demo trap detonation thing, and also the "block units from shooting with scaffold" one, since both of these are easily counterable. (Demo trap on manual) and (shoot the scaffold).

Doesn't building a scaffold over scrap block units movement too? So why is this allowed?

Is it a rule that you cannot drive dozers/trucks into a fully boxed GLA supply? (Where gla units cannot enter or leave)

What do u do in a 2v2 when 1 side is USA and the other GLA? You have to box against GLA, USA can abuse that. It shouldn't be allowed.

Very rarely seen it happen, ofcourse it's pretty fucked up if it does, but just box with a tunnel instead of rax? Or fake rax which you can detonate instantly. Idk, seems a bit unnecessary to make it a rule.

Rarely seen it happen is not argument to allow it. And boxing with something else is still not a solution to the problem, the damage will still be done by the dozer, which is clearly not the intention of the game.

It is a literal solution lol. Can even flee with workers into the tunnel if needed and doesn't even need to be perfectly boxed either.

Nobody is forcing you to make a perfect box with a rax.

u don't get the concept of boxing.

The idea of boxing with a rax is, to not have to move your workers or delay your collection. Driving a dozer into a perfect box, puts this concept ad absurdum.

What is there not to get about this concept? Just saying it might be better to forget about this concept all together.

What about force firing nuke battlemasters? Are they intended to shoot over supplies?

You gonna cry too when somebody drops rangers in your box? Sure it's no bug, but your little box can be easily abused.

Shit happens, can't make rules for every single shitty thing that can happen.

And on top of all that, this particular case is 100% preventable.

The reason I asked is because it was under discussion in rule topic recently and was pretty sure it got banned, since it is game-breaking and cannot be countered (also ridiculous that GLA units cant enter but dozer for instance can)
