o Finals: The finals will be set up and observed by an Admins and possibly other members of the Infinity Gaming Community (Admins may decline to enforce this rule)
o Size: Upon the discretion of the Admins and height of demand, this tournaments size may increase or decrease.
o Timeouts: A player may call a timeout during a game if needed, but if they do not return within a reasonable amount of time without properly informing the other player, the player waiting will be awarded with an automatic match win.
o Cheating: If a player is found to be cheating (mineral or map hacks, watching the stream, using a smurf account, etc.), they will be banned from future tournaments and disqualified from this tournament. Things such as abusing known bugs will also result in short-term bans. Multiple offenses will lead to permanent bans.
o Disappearing/AFK: If for some reason a player doesn't show up to play in the first round he/she will be disqualified from that tournament. Time restraints are as follows: Once a round officially starts (or the bracket goes up), a player has 10 minutes before he/she forfeits the match. If the round is a best of three the player has another 10 minutes before he/she forfeits the series. Obviously we're willing to be reasonable for actual serious problems, but just disappearing with no warning, or refusing to play, is pretty bad manner and we don't like it. If someone must leave, the player they defeated in the previous round will be given the opportunity to play in their place.
o Conduct: Excessive bad manners (BM) such as noob bashing, hardcore raging, or racial slurs, etc is grounds for removal from the tournament.
o Rulings: All rules and guidelines are subject to change without notice at the discretion of an admin or tournament host.
o Streaming: Streaming is only allowed if both players agree and/or an Admin wishes to cast the match. All live streams are to have delay to prevent stream sniping.
