How to call a Judge
2. Leave your cards in your hand on the table as well, all cards must be visible
3. Call a judge by pinging “@Judge Table Number x” (Judge Roles will be available in the Discord Servers)
4. Only proceed after the Judge has entered the voice channel
Your opponent will get to choose the order in which the piles will be stacked.
Recording of Matches
However, you are not allowed to stream your matches.
Please note that if you participate, there may be a chance that your match is recorded by your opponent for tournament purposes and may be uploaded.
Your match may also be streamed on our official channels.
Preparation Time (after pairings and before start of the round)
After the start of the round, if the opponent is still not at the table, you get a walk over.
*A walkover refers to awarding the victory to the participant whose opponent did not show up within 5 minutes after the start of the round
Each player is responsible for their own timekeeping should they miss out on the notifications and pings from the judges.
- All hand cards are always on screen (if you wish to move your hands off screen, please put the cards in your hand on the field).
- Entire Field (Deck, hand, drop zone, damage zone, memory, stock, clock, flag, order zone, ride deck, etc.) has to be visible at all times.
- Ensure all equipment are charged and functioning properly
- Ideal set-up: Camera at an angle where you can always see the player’s hands
Throughout the Tournament
Disconnected from the table: Once = Warning, Twice = Game loss
Should you face any video feed issues and want to reconnect, call a judge first before attempting to reconnect.
If the player connects, then disconnects, they have 5 minutes to reconnect before they are awarded a game loss. Players who reconnect after 1 minute will have to shuffle the deck. (For cards that rearranged the player deck, it will be a case by case basis by the Judge)
