If time is called it is a Tie!! If you believe your opponent is "Playing Slowly", please call a Judge as BEFORE THE END OF THE ROUND. The only acceptable forms of proof are: streaming your game in the Blue Ditto Tournaments Discord Server or your opponent admitting to "Playing Slowly"
Check In Policy: It is the players responsibility to Check In prior to each match - failure to do so will result in an automatic Game Loss. If your opponent wants to reset the match, they will need to be the one to call the Judge.
Incorrect Deck: If you select a wrong deck , please Call a Judge on Limitless, type in chat that you selected your wrong deck, and wait. If you have made any other actions in game - it will be an automatic Game Loss . If the right conditions are met, Staff will tell you to restart the game.
Bugs and Glitches: If you experience any of the following, but not limited to: Game Freezing, Internet Issues, Server Issues, Game Lag, Software Glitch, Device Crashing - it will be awarded as a Game Loss to the player experiencing the issue if the game is unusable. Otherwise attempt to finish the game if possible. If the issue is at the very start of the match (ex: one player hasn't been able to load into to the match on their end to even start) the match will be restart 1 time. If it happens a 2nd time, a Game Loss will be awarded to the player experiencing the issue.
End of Match: All games must be reported on Limitless before time has been called for the round otherwise they will be a "Tie". You can concede to your opponent to give them the "Win", but if there isn't a recorded result before time is called, it will stay a "Tie" It is strongly recommended to have screenshot proof of any win or tie upon the conclusion of a game. If you leave a game without explicitly stating "time is over, this is a tie" or something similar, it could be perceived as a concession.
Streaming: Players are allowed to stream their personal event experience on any streaming service and it is recommended to have a delay on your stream to avoid "stream sniping" or any other disadvantages. Any advantages gained by streaming, such as receiving assistance from your audience, can lead to penalties after staff investigates the situation.
Judge Calls: Issues and problems during your match will be handled by Tournament Staff - please use the Judge Call button. Any issues brought up on Discord won't be guaranteed to be answered.
Inappropriate Behavior: Any player who is found breaking rules, using in game exploits, bullying, harassing, etc. will receive penalties in the order of a Warning, followed by Removal from the Tournament, followed by a Full Tournament Series Ban.
