VERY IMPORTANT: You should get the Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel role to access the #MD-event-info and #MD-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 #MD-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 #MD-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). 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.

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 INCORRECT 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 SmashGG, Discord, 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, solely at the discretion of the Tournament Staff.
