Regarding Tournament Issues
- Opponent not showing up
You will get a round win if your opponent doesn't show up until the check in timer runs out.
- Team Sheet Error
You are allowed to claim round win if there is/are disrespancie(s) between your opponent's open team sheet and in-game team, but feel free to do gentlemen agreements to keep playing if both sides agree. Be sure to take a screenshot for evidence first! If occurs before the match starts, players are allowed to fix their in-game team first.
Ah yes, the common occurrence in most Asian countries. Make sure to take a screenshot so it'll help with our staffs' investigation, and call a judge. But for transparency's sake these rulings shall occur depending on the state of the match:
- Are you early into the game? If so, we will ask you to restart the game using the same lead.
- DC again in the early game? Replay the game on Showdown, same lead
- If you're late into the game, was there a clear and obvious winner in the match? The player with the advantage will be declared a winner
- Can't agree on who's in winning position? Either the judge will determine the winner based on the evidence gathered or you can just do a bo1 on Showdown, winner wins the round.
