This will be an open deck tournament. You must use the three decks on the tournament's shared spreadsheet. We will share the spreadsheet the morning of the tournament so any errors can be corrected.
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.

Glitches may result in a game reset.

Your SmashGG name and your Discord name MUST be close enough for us to find you on discord if needed.
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.
Also See the "rules" section below for additional rules.
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.

Visit the GGtoor Discord for ongoing updates about the event: https://discord.gg/GUhyZxFH8Q
ILLEGAL DECK: Starting the game with an illegal deck (i.e. a deck that does not match what is on the deck spreadsheet) will result in a game loss for the offending player if the game continues after both players have completed their mulligans. If the error is caught before this, simply replay the game with the correct decks.
Bans will be handled using Runeterra's Best of 3 challenge in-game client. If you have issues with the bans in the client please use #lor-chat on Discord to communicate with the mods.
TARDINESS: If your opponent appears to be non-responsive after 5 minutes of the round start, then call a moderator on SmashGG and ping your opponent and staff in #lor-cant-find-opponent. 10 minutes with no response from the opponent is a game loss for them. 15 minutes no response is a full match loss.
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 it was due to an in-game bug and not a connection issue; this is at the sole discretion of the Tournament Staff). The best way to show/prove a glitch is to have it recorded on video or screenshots.
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.
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. This includes suspicion of invalid side decking. 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.
No Intentional Draws (ID) are allowed. Timer rules will be handled by the in-game best of 3 clock. If you have any questions or issues please contact Gregory the Grey#2657 via Discord. Intentional roping will be investigated throughout, please report immediately if you feel the opponent is intentionally roping to win and a mod will spectate and investigate.
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.
Streaming permitted: If you plan to stream please ensure you have a 5 minute delay minimum.
Select matches for this event will be streamed on Twitch. To help facilitate this competitors will be asked to add two coverage accounts prior to the event and have spectating enabled.
