    • A match must start within five minutes once both players are ready; the offending player will be given a match loss.
    • A player will be given a match win if his opponent is late by five minutes, and a round win if his opponent is late by 20 minutes.
    • Players are to verify for themselves that their opponents are playing the correct decks and classes.

Series Rules

  • Players are expected to verify for themselves that their opponent is playing one of their selected classes. In the event that your opponent is not playing any of their selected classes, do call a marshal to arbitrate.
  • The winning player will use a different class – once a class has won, it is no longer playable for the rest of the series. The losing player can continue to use any class that has not yet won in the series.
  • After each series, inform the marshal of the results.
