Late Night Info

  • Swiss Round BO1 matches are 30 minutes long with 5 mins of Check In per round
  • Top Cut BO3 matches are untimed long with no Check In. If your opponent is inactive for more than 5 minutes, please call a judge, and we will likely issue a Game Loss to your opponent for inactivity.
  • When time is called during Swiss Rounds BO1 the game will be a Tie, unless otherwise stated by Staff
  • If you believe your opponent is "Playing Slowly", please call a Judge as early as possible. The only acceptable forms of proof are: streaming your game in the Late Night Events Discord Server or your opponent admitting to "Playing Slowly"
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • It is the players responsibility to Check In prior to each match - failure to do so will result in an automatic Game Loss.
  • If you aren't familiar with the Play Limitless website or need additional information, please read the Help Page
  • All cards are considered "legal for play" the day they are released online / are available in game. If the Limitless website doesn't recognize the card yet, it isn't "legal for play"
