Players must ensure they are communicating with Tournament Admins through the GEEX Platform.
Make sure that you let an admin know if one of your teammates is going to be a little bit behind, for example.
Admins can be found as "Staff" in this event.
If players fail to be ready to play within 10 minutes of admin’s request their match may be forfeited. Multiple occurrences will result in the team being dropped from the tournament.
Players failing to communicate with tournament admins may have matches forfeited or be dropped from the tournament.
Disconnects and Technical issues
Pauses are only available to teams in extreme circumstances, such as technical or network issues. Tournament Admins should be notified of reasons for the pause and will determine the proper actions forward to resolve paused matches
Tournament Admins will allow a maximum of 2 minutes of pause time and 2 pauses per matchup. Players must resolve the issue within that time. Failure to resolve the issue will result in the continuation of the match as normal.
In the event of a disconnect, the game should be resumed and the remaining time in the match played out.
Cheating, Griefing, and other dishonorable conduct
Depending on the level of dishonorable conduct the offending player may receive a warning or have their team dropped from the tournament.
The Tournament Admins have final say in dealing with bad behavior. They have the final say and there is no appeal process.
Reporting any issues with behavior must be brought to the Tournament Admins not the offending players.
