Tournaments are about more than just winning. They are an opportunity to meet people from different countries and different walks of life who share the passion for the game. They also serve as a meeting grounds where you can finally hang out with friends from thousands of miles away who you might have only talked to online. Nevertheless, a major part of tournaments is about determining an eventual champion. We all have a competitive spirit within us, otherwise we wouldn’t be attending tournaments in the first place. As the stakes are raised, so is the pressure to perform.This document is an attempt to strictly codify every rule that will be in effect at the tournament. Our goal is not to make things overly complicated, but rather to make sure everyone is treated fairly. In the event of a conflict, strict adherence to these rules will ensure that things don’t become personal and everyone can have a good time. All tournament competitors are responsible for knowing these rules in advance.
These rules will be in effect while a single Match in the tournament is played. If you are playing in the tournament, be sure to study this section carefully, especially if you have no prior tournament experience. Please see an individual tournament guidelines for specific guidelines.

The following rules are designed to deal with rule violators in a way that ensures everyone is treated fairly. These rules WILL be enforced! Know the consequences for your actions ahead of time.
