Duke and UNC will not tolerate any form of misconduct, including but not limited to harassment and cheating. We will send out a code of conduct to all registered teams. To deter cheating, we are requiring that all players keep their cameras turned on. Please email me at least 24 hours before the tournament if you require an exemption to this rule.
Any misconduct can be reported to tournament staff, or to me directly via dm (through Discord once we are all on the tournament server) or email ([email protected]). The anonymous community-wide misconduct reporting form is also available to all players.
