nice seeing cash prizes now. better than those trophies. there was a myth the more trophies you had on your avatar the more you would get laid.
I am disputing my loss.
My opponent timed out in my battle, and I have multiple witnesses to prove that, but some td or leader on ps decided to turn off the timer when my opponent was lagging out even though I stated that I do not agree with this. (He didnt even ask for it to be turned off, isn't that some nice service?)
  • Timer Clause: If a player exhausts the timer, he/she loses.
I don't know why someone can just tune into my game and decide that this rule somehow doesnt apply anymore.

"Timer Clause will be strictly enforced for this tournament. This means that the normal disconnection rules found in the Tournament Rules, Guidelines, and Information thread do not apply. If a player disconnects and does not reconnect to their battle before the timer expires, they lose that particular game. This doesn't necessarily mean they lose the entire set."

I don't know why this suddently doesnt apply to my game, and I can't help but feel like if I just turned it on again and my opponent timed out it would have been justified.
I feel I should get this win because I lost due to some td or leader on ps breaking the rules that were set for this tournament. Rules are supposed to be upheld not just inforced when you want them to count, there are multiple cases of people timing out in spl or wcop or other osts and no one jumped in to play the knight in shining armor and turn of the timer there, I can't help but wonder why turning off the timer multiple times here despite me saying that I disagree is ok and should mean I do not get the win that I would have gotten if there wasnt someone neglecting the rules that were set for this tournament

Edit: Game in question

Also just to clarify, my opponent could have turned off spectators at any time, which he didnt decide to do.
