RULES

This event will be a Standard Format event featuring Best of 3 matches. Decklists are required and will be open.

The main stage will be Swiss rounds on Saturday, May 29th, starting at 10AM EST (The number of Swiss rounds may vary depending on participants.)

The Top 8 Cut from Saturday will face off on Sunday, May 30th, starting at 10AM EST, in a Single Elimination Playoff bracket.

Check-in for the event will open TWENTY FOUR(24) HOURS before the event, here on Toornament.com
Check-in for the event will close ONE (1) hour before the event begins, at 9:00 AM EST.

IF YOU DO NOT CHECK IN BY THE DEADLINE (1 HOUR PRIOR TO THE EVENT) HERE ON TOORNAMENT.COM, YOU MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO PARTICIPATE! It is VERY IMPORTANT that you double-check your time conversion to the local time for your time zone, so you do not miss this deadline of 1 hours before the event!

Visit the GGtoor discord for ongoing updates about the event: https://discord.gg/GUhyZxFH8Q
VERY IMPORTANT: You should join the #mtg-chat channel of this discord at least 30 minutes before the event begins, and 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 the offending player being issued a Game Loss.

Each round will be 50 minutes, and 10 minutes between rounds to get ready for the next match. If a player's MTG Arena timer reaches 0:00, that player loses the match.

Each time you are paired against your next opponent, you should reach out to the opponent on discord via DM if needed to arrange your match. (Use the Direct Challenge in MTG Arena to challenge your opponent. Set up your match by selecting "Tournament Match" and please remember that MTG Arena user names are case sensitive.)

TARDINESS: If your opponent appears to be non-responsive after 2 minutes, ping them AND the tournament staff via a post in the discord channel, alerting everyone that the opponent appears tardy. This applies both to the first game and the subsequent game(s) of the match. If your opponent does not respond/report in for the match within 4 minutes from the time of the first public ping, ping them AND the tournament staff again, and your opponent will be issued a game loss. (If a Best of 3 Series and their first loss, then repeat this process, and they still do not respond within another 4 minutes they will then be issued a match loss.)

DISCONNECTS: If there is a disconnection during a match game, the disconnected player should try to rejoin the game as quickly as possible and keep playing. If the disconnected player times out and loses the game, the loss will stand, the game should NOT be restarted/voided (unless in special circumstances adjudicated differently, at the sole discretion of the Tournament Staff. )

Players are fully responsible for the presence and stability of an internet connection as well as for the stability of the system running MTG Arena.
Any types of connection issue, bugs, anything related to your game crashing/not functioning properly is the sole responsibility of the player.

Age: To be eligible to participate, a player must be at least 13 years old (or such other age, of greater, as may be required in such player’s country of residence). Players between the ages of 13 and 17 (or such other age, if greater, as may be required in such player’s country of residence) must have written permission from a parent or legal guardian (a form will be provided which must be returned in order to complete processing your registration). IF YOU ARE UNDER 18, THE FORM CAN BE FOUND HERE: https://discordapp.com/channels/708790719015551017/761211030927441940/761211331696132116 , PLEASE CONTACT TOURNAMENT STAFF PRIOR TO THE EVENT TO HAVE THE REQUIRED PAPERWORK COMPLETED OR YOU MAY NOT BE ABLE TO PARTICIPATE.

IF THERE ARE GENERAL CONNECTION PROBLEMS/INTERRUPTIONS OF 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 USING ANY BUG OR UNINTENDED EXPLOIT THAT EXISTS IN THE GAME, intentionally or unintentionally. 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 performance in a given match. If this is not possible, it is recommended that you at least take a screenshot of your match result screen just in case of any disputes.

Sportsmanlike conduct is expected. You are NOT allowed to be disruptive or grief your opponent in Real Life, such as in any Discord or Twitch chat (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, your actions may result in a game loss, match loss, or disqualification from the event without prizes, solely at the discretion of the Tournament Staff.

Select matches for this event may be streamed on a designated/one of our Official Twitch channels. Competitors playing in the event may live stream the event from their own POV as well (and are strongly encouraged to do so-if you do, please add "#GGtoor" to the title and don't forget a time delay so no one can stream snipe you!) By registering for this event, you agree that we may live re-broadcast your live stream from our designated Twitch channels and Shout-cast any game-play during the course of the event, as well as create VODs of this Content, which we may choose to make available on our official Youtube channels and other platforms, so others may marvel at your awesome plays (or epic fails!)

ALL DECISIONS BY THE TOURNAMENT ADMINISTRATOR OF THIS EVENT ARE FINAL.
