    Rulings you should read (open)

    Identity

    I expect many battles to be completed under alts. This can be bad for tournament security, and thus I will make this clear: If I hear any whispers of identity theft (battling as someone you are not) or proxy battling (helping someone else battle through pm) I will not be pleased and I will take severe actions.

    Scouting

    Next, I do not want to hear anything about counterteaming, at all. Do not complain about it. I also don't want to hear about any blatant scouting. There is a difference between "[user] is known for using stall" and "let me follow [user] around all day to watch all his battles since I am his opponent". I expect a lot of the former and none of the latter.

    With that said, I give permission to all battlers to ask any person spectating their battle to leave if they do not want them watching.

    Timer Clause

    As for taking long between moves, if your opponent asks you to hurry up, please oblige. If you are doing a damage calc for a key turn that is one thing, but prolonging every move is suspicious and annoying. Don't do it. Furthermore, Battle Timeout is a rule for a reason. If you run out of time, you lose, simple as that. It does not matter what your opponent says. Do not battle if you think you will have to leave mid battle, and instead reschedule for a better time.

    Disconnections

    Finally, in the case of a disconnect, the decision is in the hands of the player who did not disconnect. The options are: redo the battle move for move or redo the battle with the same teams but different moves. If the battle was without a doubt over, they may also take the win. Any suspicion that a disconnect was committed on purpose to redo a match may be appealed to me, and if I feel this happened there will be severe consequences, don't do it.

    I know that was a lot to read, but it is all necessary for me to have posted here so everyone can see it in the case of a dispute. I don't want any confusion or any problems.

    Round 5 Matches
    • Round 5 Matches will end on May 23rd at 11:59 PM (EST).
    • Any player that has already submitted their team will be listed on the site. Submit teams/logs and see if your opponent has submitted a team HERE.
    • If a player has not submitted a team by the end of the first week, they will be strongly considered for being subbed out.
    Because the Member's List has been disabled, you can use the Google Search bar at the very top of the forum page. Just type in your opponent's name and it should be the first or second link that shows up; "View Profile: Oglemi" is an example of a search result.

    How is the next round going to pan out? There are going to be an odd number of players, and it really seems too late in the tournament to be handing out byes. Maybe winners can be decided through some kind of round-robin arrangement?
