This tournament will use 15-point powers, negs, and no bouncebacks. Up to 4 players may be in-game at a time. We will use 7-second timing rules rather than 5 in order to make up for online latency.
This tournament will not tolerate misconduct such as, but not limited to: racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, verbal harassment of players or staff, and generally inappropriate comments. A link to the misconduct form as well as the IKEA Code of Conduct, to which we’ll be adhering, will be available and visible on the server.
Cheating will not be tolerated at this tournament. Video will be strongly suggested for all players. We reserve the right to remove anyone whom we believe to be cheating from the tournament. Our protocol for dealing with cheaters can also be found on the Code of Conduct linked above.
