Being 5 minutes late to a match after BOTH players have checked in is a game loss
Being 10 minutes late to a match after BOTH players have checked in is a match loss.
Time limit rule will apply: you have 50 minutes to finish a best of 3 match. Failure to do so will make it so that the player with the highest life points at the end of the turn will win the duel.
If it's a side deck event, then you have 5 minutes to make your changes and start playing. Taking longer than 5 minutes will result in a game loss.
If you have any problems, then contact a moderator or talk to your opponent in chat. Take screenshots for verifying and explaining what happened. We cannot help if you do not communicate proof of your issue.
Your duel room MUST have AT LEAST 3 spots, leaving room for AT LEAST 1 spectator. Not leaving room for a spectator will result in a penalty.
There cannot be a 3rd person that is not a mod or the streamer in the duel room. If you have an unknown spectator, then both players will receive a penalty.
Disconnection Errors and Glitches
Always record a video or take a screenshot of your glitch or disconnect and call a moderator.
Glitches like a frozen game and floating cards may result in a game reset.
Lost Connection = Game loss
1st offense - Warning
2nd offense - Game Lost
3rd offense- Match Lost
Your SmashGG name and your Discord name MUST be close enough for us to find you on discord if needed.
Your Duelist ID must match the account you use during our tournament. Mismatching ID's could result in disqualification.
If something is wrong with SmashGG, then you are expected to use the discord to communicate with the mods for help.
Being kicked or removed from the tournament for any reason is your responsibility. This includes:
Not signing in for any reason.
Messaging any mod for any reason after the start time wondering why you're not signed up.
Not having the same SmashGG and Discord name so we kicked you because we didn't know who you were.
In the event the tournament does not conclude before in-game maintenance, then the event must be carried over to the next day, and you will be required to play at THE SAME TIME THE TOURNAMENT STARTED THE DAY BEFORE.
This event will be held using swiss brackets, then cut to a Top (depending on the number of players) single elimination playoffs, featuring Best-of-3 matches.
Visit the GGtoor Discord for ongoing updates about the event: https://discord.gg/GUhyZxFH8Q
VERY IMPORTANT: You should get the Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links role to access the #ygo-event-announcements and #ygo-chat channels of this Discord at least 30 minutes before the event begins. Stay there for the duration of the event to make sure you do not miss any important instructions from the tournament staff!
ILLEGAL DECK: Starting the game with an illegal deck will result in a game loss for the offending player. The offending player must scoop immediately once an illegal card is drawn and alert staff of the deck error. (Failure to do so will upgrade this penalty to Cheating and DQ without prize)
Each time you are paired against an opponent, you should use SmashGG chat to arrange a duel room. If you're having trouble with SmashGG chat, then use the #ygo-chat on the Discord to communicate with the mods.
TARDINESS: If your opponent appears to be non-responsive after 5 minutes of BOTH players checking in or while side decking, then call a moderator on SmashGG. If you're having SmashGG issues, then use the #ygo-chat on the Discord to ping a mod.
DISCONNECTS: If there is a disconnection during a match game, the disconnected player should rejoin the game as quickly as possible and keep playing the game. Otherwise, it is usually a game loss (unless in special circumstances adjudicated differently, at the sole discretion of the Tournament Staff. )
Age: To be eligible to participate, a player must be at least 13 years old (or such other age, if greater, as may be required in such player’s country of residence.)
IF THERE ARE GENERAL CONNECTION PROBLEMS/INTERRUPTIONS WITH THE GAME'S SERVERS, THE EVENT MAY BE SUSPENDED AND RESCHEDULED TO COMPLETE ON A FUTURE DATE.
Cheating of any kind will result in disqualification without prizes from the event, and being banned from all future events. If you are in a match where you believe your opponent cheated, please send any evidence you may have to the tournament staff. In addition to Hacking, "CHEATING" ALSO INCLUDES INVALID SIDE DECKING AND USING ANY BUG OR UNINTENDED EXPLOIT THAT EXISTS IN THE GAME, intentionally or unintentionally - UNLESS Staff has made an announcement to everyone about an exception to this rule. If this somehow happens to you unintentionally, you should immediately alert your opponent and tournament staff - if you don't, you will be deemed to have been Cheating, and you will be disqualified without prizing and banned from all future events. OPTIONAL: We realize not every player can do this, so this is not mandatory: If you have the capability, live streaming and/or recording video of all of your matches is a good idea, to help eliminate any possibility of any dispute arising as to the results of the match.
Sportsmanlike conduct is expected. You are NOT allowed to be disruptive or harass your opponent on Discord, Start.gg, Twitch chat, etc (or any other actions that could be considered unsportsmanlike conduct except for actions intended to be allowed within the game itself as part of normal game-play.) If you do, then your actions may result in a game loss, match loss, or disqualification from the event without prizes, and/or ban from future events, solely at the discretion of the Tournament Staff.
The prize is delivered via Paypal. You must have an account to be able to claim it.
Funds for Cash prize winners will be sent via PayPal, and winners will be required to provide full Legal Name and Physical Mailing Address (along with the email address associated with the PayPal account) for winnings to to be disbursed.
