    • No backseat gaming is allowed in the tournament.
    • Players are to cross out the option to allow their friends to spectate their games.
    • A match loss is defined as a one deck victory for the opponent while a series loss is defined as a three decks victory for the opponent.
    • Players found infringing the rules may either be given a warning or expulsion from the tournament. Subsequent infringements will increase the possibility of expulsion.
    • Players are to ensure that their decks are ready before the start of the tournament.
    • Decklists will be revealed before the start of the tournament and after the closure of registration.
    • The Chief Marshal will have the final decision in all matters.
  • Gameplay
    • 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.
    • If players begin a match with a deck that they are not allowed to use, they will be given a match loss.
  • Tie
    • The match will be replayed with the same classes.
  • Sportsmanship
    • Any racist or insulting comments will result in a match loss.
    • Players should not guilt-trip their opponents if they disconnect, and their opponents choose to take the match win.
  • Disconnection
    • A match win will be awarded to the opponent of the disconnected player.
    • An option of restarting the match is available if both players agree to it. (Refer to ‘Sportsmanship’ above.)

Series Rules

  • Best-of-5 (first to three wins).
  • 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.
