Players must check in before each match. Failure to do so will result in a loss unless reported to the Judge as a potential bug before the check in timeout. Failure to check in two rounds in a row will result in disqualification.
Judge reserves the right to disqualify over misconduct or bad sportsmanship.
If a bug is reported during the match, consult the FAQ for possible solutions. If still an issue, contact a Judge. If the bug is not resolved and the match does not have a winner by the end of the round, a loss will be handed to the bugged player.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why am I not in the tournament after I registered?
This can happen because:
- You didn't submit a decklist and/or check in
- There was a techical glitch on the limitless website
In both cases, there's nothing the Judge can do. Once the tournament starts, that's it. No more applicants can be permitted to join, and a Judge has no ability to affect the roster beyond removing players.
However, if you think it was a technical glitch, you can request a Judge to verify if you are still in the tournament and, if yes, can wait until next round for Limitless to automatically resolve the issue. In the meantime, you should report the bug to Limitless via their contact link, or Discord, at the bottom of the page.
Why did I lose? I'm still in a match.
Most often, this is because you didn't check in, which needs to be done at the start of each match. Failure to do this twice in a row will result in disqualification.
The player is responsible for checking in each round, not the Judge. If you are unable to do so due to website error, immediately request a Judge (before the check in timeout) and tell them of the issue so they can make note of the problem and not count it against you.
However, If neither is the case, then request a Judge to review the problem.
My opponent has not responded. What should I do?
In most cases, give it a little time. You will not be given a win until the check in timer runs out and your opponent has not checked in.
If your opponent has checked in, but has not sent a match request by the check in timeout (5 minutes), contact a Judge to make them aware of the situation. At the 15 minute mark, if still no repsonse from your opponent on Limitless, a Judge will give out a win.
I don't know what I'm supposed to do. Can you tell me?
Keep in mind that a Judge may not have the experience to accurately answer this question. However, there is a suggested order of who to contact first to answer this question.
- Reach out to your opponent. They would be more immedately able to respond to your question and are likely willing to help teach you.
- Take a quick look through the Help Page to find clues on what to do next.
- Request a Judge if all of the above fails. However, first request through Limitless before trying out Discord. It'll make it easier to help you as the Judges are likely helping multiple people and would prefer if all help requests are in one place.
I can't register/submit a decklist for the tournament. Can you do it for me?
Unfortunately, Judges cannot do this for you. They are responsible for only managing the tournament and are unable to interact with the registration process.
If you think this is due to some bug or issue, reach out to Limitless via the contact link or Discord below. Requesting a Judge's help will not guaruntee to resolve the issue, but you can try seeking advice through the tournament Discord posted on the front page.
And don't use private messaging to reach LordAvalon on Discord for this issue. I won't get any notifications and you'll likely be ignored. Use the tournament Discord main page, where I'll be before matches start.
I can't send a friend request/match invite. Can you help?
Keep in mind that a Judge may not have the experience to accurately answer this question.
A fix that can be reccomended would be to log out of the game and log back in to fix the problem. However, if it's error code 42055, you need to clear out the game data cache to remove buggy code. This will not delete your game. It only clears out temporary stored information.
If still an issue, try removing friends from your roster to make room for your opponent. Contact the Judge if this does not work.
I want to give the win to my opponent, but the match has timed out!
No worries! Just reach out to a Judge and they will get this fixed right away!
If you have any more questions, go reach out to @LordAvalon on the tournament Discord listed on the front page. Best of luck!
