Rules Violations

⚠ We REALLY do not want to have to use these, so please follow the rules!

  • Players may be issued cautions and/or warnings for rules violations
  • Players can receive at most 2 cautions; any further cautions issued under the rules will automatically become warnings instead
  • Every other warning a player receives will result in a game loss for the game during which the rules violation encouraging the warning occurred

Fair Play Violations

To maintain a friendly environment, players are strongly encouraged to pause the game and point out fair-play violations rather than attempting to argue over them later and get players penalized (unless it’s a really egregious violation)

Fair play adjudication procedure:

  • If a player notices a fair play violation in a replay, they may submit a screenshot to the League Organizer for review (and should identify the replay)
    • If the League Organizer determines that the violation was minor and clearly unintentional/due to gameplay confusion, no penalty
    • If the League Organizer determines that the violation was major but clearly unintentional/due to gameplay confusion, player gets a caution
    • If the League Organizer determines that the violation was clearly intentional, player gets a warning
  • The League Organizer reserves the right to issue warnings to players who repeatedly submit minor or frivolous gameplay violations

Army Composition Violations

Any army composition violation results in a caution for the first violation and a warning for any future violations.
