Rules

  1. You DO NOT have to submit Decklists
  2. You are ALLOWED to switch Decks between Games in a Best of 3
  3. You are ALLOWED to switch Decks between Rounds.
  4. COIN FLIPS - We will not be playing with any coin flip rules. You are allowed to switch decks between games, so keeping a natural coin flip seems to be more appropriate.
  5. GAME TIMERS - You must play with Game Timers enabled. If you start a game without a Game Timer then restart the game. If the Game Timer runs out naturally, the game must be replayed until somebody wins the game. You may switch decks when replaying a game that ended in a draw via Game Timer.
  6. SLOW PLAY - You may not slow play. If your opponent is slow playing then start recording and ask them to speed up. If they continue to slow play then send the recording to a judge on Discord. Any Player guilty of slow play will receive a Game Loss upon review of the recording.
  7. DISCONNECTS - In the case of a Disconnect, the in-game timer of the affected Player continues to run down. If they manage to Reconnect to the game before getting penalized by the timer, nothing else happens. However, after some time of inactivity, their opponent will eventually be given the win by PTCGO. That result will be considered final for the Game.
  8. ILLEGAL CARDS - We do not use decklists, so if you see a Player use a card that is not allowed in the Standard Format, this includes Banned cards, then take a screen shot and send it to a judge on Discord. Any player using illegal cards will receive a Game Loss.
  9. UNSPORTSMANLIKE CONDUCT - Clear cases of unsporting conduct like intentionally reporting wrong results or insulting opponents will be handled with a Match Loss and possibly a ban from the Season and/or future Seasons.
  10. JUDGE - if you call a judge for any reason, you must also go to the Judge Channel on Discord and message @judge. A judge may not always be available, so start recording your game where necessary so a judge can review the recording and determine a Game Winner.
