The only acceptable forms of proof are: a video recording, a link to your Stream, streaming your game in the Zach Lesage Discord Server, your opponent admitting to "Playing Slowly."
  • If you select a wrong deck , please provide a screenshot with the following to staff: your hand and Active Pokémon flipped over. 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 .

In BO1, any screenshot with gameplay more than 25 minutes will be stay as a Tie regardless of the outcome.
  • 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.
  • 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.
