    RE: Toxzn vs liberty32

    In the XY OU match between Toxzn and liberty32, Toxzn's timer ran out around turn 50.

    From the DC rules:

    "Regarding time outs, they are a bit more complex, specifically because some timeouts are due to DCs. The best we can do for this scenario is say that there is some number between 1 minute and 2 minutes (which we will not publicize) that we will set as a limit for timing out, and if you timeout with more than that limit time remaining, we'll assume it is a DC, whereas the opposite is a true timeout. A true timeout defaults to a loss, while the DC timeout is prone to the DC rules (did you submit or not)."

    Because Toxzn did not fully disconnect from PS, did not disconnect from IRC (and only had an idle time of 58 seconds at the timeout), and had made moves rather quickly in the preceding turn to the timeout (~20 seconds in the preceding turns and only 40 seconds at timeout), the match is ruled a timeout and the win awarded to liberty32.

    RE: prem vs CatcherAndTheRai

    A no contest is called in the match between prem and CatcherAndTheRai as no match was scheduled, no scheduling was attempted via the forums, and there was no notice of the match being possibly uncompleted earlier in the week to allow for subs.
