Team Sheet Discrepancy

Team Sheets may not be changed after the tournament starts. Issues found on your team sheet during the tournament may result in a game or round loss. DOUBLE CHECK YOUR TEAMSHEET BEFORE THE TOURNAMENT

Before the round

  • Call a Judge.
  • Fix the team to match the current team list
  • If you cannot change the team to match the team list. Notify a Judge of the issue so we can mark it down. Notify EACH Opponent at the start of your rounds of the issue. Failure to do so is considered dishonest behavior and can result in disqualification.

After the round has begun

  • Call a Judge.
  • Gather Evidence; Screen Shot or Recording.
  • Once a Judge has verified the issue the player in question will receive a game loss (if game 3 of the set the round will be forfeited)
  • At this point the player in question can now change the team to match the team list or begin notifying each opponent of the issue. Failure to do so will be considered dishonest behavior and may result in disqualification.
