Conduct at the Event
Players are expected to assist in the conduct of the event. Accordingly, conduct which tends to disrupt the event, including a failure to follow the instructions of the tournament manager or staff, interrupting or intervening in announcements made by the tournament staff or discourteous or disruptive conduct generally may result in forfeiture, sanction or disqualification from the tournament or future tournaments. The decision of the tournament manager on all matters concerning the conduct and outcome of the tournament is final and not open to debate. Questioning any such decision is likely to be treated as disruptive conduct.
Delaying one's own defeat in a game where defeat is inevitable and there is no tactical advantage to the delay may be considered bad sportsmanship and treated as such.
After the winner of each round has been determined, it is the responsibility of the winning player to report the victory. The following is required to report your results:
- Update score and upload replays to the corresponding 'Bracket, Results and Replays' forum topic in the format: Danku 5 - 0 Edvin.
- @mention a referee in Discord to quickly confirm your result and that you have updated the corresponding 'Bracket, Results and Replays' forum topic.
Should a tournament participant lose connection during a match then the match will be treated as a loss for the participant who lost connection unless they had a clear lead to the point that the match was already decided and the opponent had no realistic way of winning the match (tournament organizers' discretion applies), or if both participants agree to re-play the match. If they re-play the match the same factions and map must be used.
If a participant disconnects multiple times in a tournament they may be DQ'd.
All reports and issues will be resolved by the tournament manager and the referees. Cheating will result in exclusion from the tournament and a ban from future tournaments hosted by GameReplays.org. Poor sportsmanship may also result in disqualification from the tournament.
Players/teams that fail to show how up within 15 minutes of their allocated match time will be disqualified. At this point, an alternate player(s)/team may be allocated to their position, or the opponent will advance. Players are expected to continue playing until eliminated or until the end of the tournament is reached. Failure to play rounds in an expedient manner may result in disqualification.
In the event two players are from different locations and thus are based on different servers, the players will alternate who hosts in the hopes it also alternates who's server location the game is based on. The first game will be hosted by the player in the top of the bracket and then it shall be rotated from there.
I understand this will not be 100% fair as in the event a decider is required it will be placed on one players server giving an unfair advantage but given how the server locations work, there isn't really much I can do about that unfortunately.
The only addition to this rule is that if two players go against each other for a second time, then the first game will be hosted by the player in the bottom of the bracket. For example, Player A and Player B play each other in the first round and are based on different servers. Player A is in the top of the bracket and thus will host the first game, the game ends by the decider in which Player A hosted. If Player A and Player B meet again later in the tournament, Player B will host the first game and thus the decider (if required) will be hosted by Player B.
Please note in this example, if Player A hosts the first game but loses the series and thus doesn't get a deciding game on their server, then Player B will STILL host the first game if they come against each other later in the tournament. As far as I am concerned, Player A had their opportunity to play with the advantage and it is not Player B's duty to put themselves at a disadvantage the next time.
Any adjustments to make this fairer that anyone comes up with will most definitely be taken under consideration, however we will not be using any 3rd party programs to force Player to Player connections.
If you like the format of the tournament or just wish to show your support, people are more then welcome to sponsor the tournament to help increase the prize pool. Feel free to get in touch by PM here
I hope everyone understands and I eagerly look forward to the tournament!
