We follow the VGC Rules for TPCI. Here are some important rules to keep in mind.

  1. TREAT EVERYONE WITH RESPECT. There is a ZERO TOLERANCE policy for unsportsmanlike conduct
  2. Make sure your teamsheets are correct. If there is more than one error on your teamsheet, you will be automatically DQ'ed. If you have one error, you must notify your opponent before the first game of your set begins, otherwise it is a set loss.
  3. TAKE A SCREENSHOT IF YOU DISCONNECT. If you do not take a sc of your disconnect code, you will receive a game loss, even if you weren't the cause of the disconnect.
  4. Do not report wins early. Only report wins after each game has concluded. Allow the timer to Auto-Resolve the match if you opponent hasn't checked in (Example: Don't self report G1 & G2 Wins in the last minute).
  5. REQUEST A JUDGE IF THERE ARE ANY ISSUES DURING THE TOURNAMENT, OR IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS
