1.0 – Preparations
1.1 – Complete player profile
All players must have a complete player profile on BeGosu. This means that the following information must be filed out correctly:
• You have to add a gamertag for BNet
• You must add at least one way of contacting you (MSN, Skype, IRC)
1.2 – Contacting your opponent
There are different ways to contact your opponent. Write a wall post, send him a private message via the message system and add his BNet ID. Remember to suggest a precise timeframe of when you are playable.
1.3 - Not being able to play your match before the deadline
If you do not manage to play your match before the deadline of the round, you will get a default loss. If both players are trying to claim a default win because of not getting to play their match in time, BOTH of them will get a default loss, and be eliminated from the tournament. There is no such case where we would send a player to the next round if his opponent has just showed the minimum of activity. Therefore; play your match before the deadline, since that is the best for the both of you.
2.0 - Game
2.1 - Choose a race
Players must select a race at the start of the match and cannot change race between or before games.
2.2 – Disconnects
If a player disconnects in the first 4 minutes of a match, and there was no contact between opponents, the game is replayed. After 4 minutes or after contact the remaining player might offer to replay the game, otherwise the replay must be uploaded and an admin needs to be contacted. You must re-game if you have no significant advantage (very likely victory).
2.3 - Pausing the game
If you have no decent reason, do not pause a game. You must inform your opponent before and give him an approximately time for how long it will take. The game can be only resumed by the player that paused, after he asked the opponent if he is ready.
2.4 – Observers
No observers besides admins and official/approved streamers can observe a game.
2.5 - Cheats and Hacks
Using any kind of cheats, hacks, bugs or any action that gives you an unfair advantage are illegal and will result in a ban and your account will be permanently suspended.
