§1.3 : Tournament rules: ”Conquest”
§1.3.1 : Cheating
§1.3.2 : Disconnects and participation
§1.3.3 : Challenge screen

§1.1 - Generelt

For at sikrer den bedst mulige turnering for alle deltagere har admins til en hver tid ret til at gå i mod reglerne.
§1.2 - Opførsel og sprog
Vi forventer en ordentlig opførsel fra alle deltagere i turneringen.
Deltagere der bliver udsat for dårlig opførsel af andre spillere i turneringen bedes kontakte en administrator og vedlægge screenshot af chat.
Admins har efterfølgende ret til at diskvalificere den gældende person.

§1.3 - Turnerings regler ”Conquest”
Alle kampe i group play bliver spillet som best-of-5
Deltagere medbringer 3 forskellige decks og classes til hver match.
Den første spiller der vinder 3kampe bliver betragtet som vinderen og går videre.
Når en kamp er afsluttet må der højest gå 5 minutter før næste kamp i serien skal gå i gang.
Det er tilladt at ændre i sine deck efter hver modstander.
Deltagere skal vinde en gang med 3 forskellige decks for at gå videre.
Når en deltager vinder kamp, kan det vindende deck ikke bruges igen i denne match.
Deltageren der taber en kamp må han enten beholde decket han lige har spillet med eller skifte til et nyt. (Dog ikke et deck spilleren tidligere har vundet med)
Spillere skal informere hinanden inden kampstart omkring hvilke 3 classes de har valgt at spille med, dog ikke hvornår.

§1.3.1 - Snyd
Spillere der bliver taget i at snyde vil blive banned fra turneringen.
Det er ikke tilladt at bruge third-party software mens man spiller i turneringen.

§1.3.2 - Disconnects og deltagelse
Hvis du som deltager ikke er mødt op til din kamp 15 minutter efter det officielle start tidspunkt, bliver dette betragtet som udeblivelse og du vil blive diskvalificeret.
Er din modstander ikke mødt op 15 minutter efter det officielle start tidspunkt, tag da et screenshot som du sender til admins, med dit forsøg på at kontakte og adde din modstander.
Du er som deltager alene ansvarlig for at din internet forbindelse, hardware og software virker som det skal.
Skulle du være så uheldig at disconnecte i en kamp, ses kampen som tabt fra din side.
Skulle blizzards servere gå ned så begge spillere disconnecter, ses kampen som et draw, og skal dermed spilles om.
Husk altid at tage screenshots af wins, disconnects osv. som bevismateriale til admins.

§1.3.3 - Challenge screen
Kampen starter når begge spillere har accepteret en challenge og er i ”Challenge screen”.
Når begge spillere er i challenge screen, kan der bedes om screenshots af decks som er til rådighed, for at verificere at begge spillere kun har 1 deck pr class som de spiller.
Det er vigtigt at begge spillere kun har 1 deck pr class til rådighed (af de classes som man gerne vil spille i matchen), så verificer selv før man går i gang med turneringen at man har slettet de overflødige decks.
Et screenshot skal leveres ved forespørgsel uden at forlade ”challenge screen”, ellers vil der være mulighed for diskvalifikation grundet forsøgt snyd.
Der må altså ikke eksistere mere end de 3 deck du vælger at spille med, mod en given modstander i din challenge screen (Gør der det, vil det lede til diskvalifikation).

§1.4 - Spectating og streaming
Det er tilladt at have spectators til at se med under kampene. Det er dog deltageres eget ansvar at følge med i hvem der ser jeres kampe.
Streaming af turneringen er også tilladt, streamere skal dog være opmærksom på at tilføje delay på streamen, da modstanderen ellers kan følge med.

When both players are in the challenge screen one can ask for screenshots of the available decks to verify that both players only have 1 deck per played class.
It is important that both players only have 1 deck available per class (of the classes you wish to play in the match), so remember to check before the tournament begins that you have deleted any redundant decks.
A screenshot must be delivered on request without leaving the challenge screen, otherwise it might be cause for disqualification on grounds of attempted cheating.

In short, there cannot be more than the 3 decks you choose to play with against a given opponent in your challenge screen. If there is, it will be cause for disqualification.

§1.4 – Spectating and streaming
It is allowed to have spectators watching during your matches. It is the participant’s own responsibility to keep track of who watches your games.
