#01. Every participant must respect their opponent. Bad behavior (determined by staff) will result in a warning and may lead to an immediate disqualification of a player or their team. This tournament values not only great skills, but also sportsmanship and fairness. Any insult, racism or flaming will not be tolerated. Laming and mind games in game are allowed, it is part of the game.
#02. Every participant must have the correct installation of the Age of Empires II: The Conquerors 1.0 OR 1.0C version.
#03. A team must try their best to schedule and play their match against the opposing teams. If the staff determines that a team is trying to avoid scheduling and playing the tournament games, the team may be warned, receive an admin loss for the game or match or be disqualified from the tournament.
#04. If players cannot come to an agreement in scheduling their match, the match is to be played at the default Admin Time, which is Sunday 13 GMT unless stated otherwise by admins or moderators of the tournament.
#05. a) Smurfing and account sharing is not allowed.
#05. b) Each person can play in the tournament using only one nickname. If a player is caught using more than one nickname in the tournament, but was not smurfing (therefore played himself/herself, however with a different nickname), the player will be warned and all games that he played with the wrong nickname will count as an admin loss. A second warning for using a different nickname will result in the player's disqualification.
#05. c) The nicknames provided and listed in the Sign-ups must be exactly the same as the ones used in the agreed game lobby and in-game, so the Voobly accounts which are signed up must not have its nicknames changed for the duration of the tournament. If a player is caught changing their nickname, they will be warned.
#06. All games are by default to be played in the Voobly Tournament Lobby ( Link). If both teams agree or if playing in Voobly is somehow not possible, the games may be played either with a different client ( Link toGame Ranger) or via IP.
#07. #07. a) Immediately after two teams have finished a match, each team prepares their recorded games (1 set of recorded games from one of their players' point of view), properly renamed and zipped and the team on the left (see rule #07. c) ) then makes a thread in the recorded games forums, uploads both POVs, and states the result using a spoiler tag.
Dropping / disconnecting will be treated as resigning and losing that player. The game must continue.
There will be no rematch for players who lost connections. No discussion on this.
If all players drop then the recorded game will be reviewed and a final decision made by the Tournament mods.
No Deleting allowed. If a member of your team deletes your whole team will be disqualified.
If any player holds a game up on Wait and refuses to continue send a screenshot to a Tournament mod and they will be kicked from the game to allow it to continue
All aspects, plus others not listed, will be analyzed before making a decision by tournament mods as they see fit.
