Please be advised that we have amended Help Topic 2107 - No Show. To see the Help Topic in full click here, however, below are the main points related to donating...
Players, who do not announce in advance they are 'donating', and are determined to be a no show from start of tourney will have a Player note placed in file by the TD.
Players in 1x1 tourney formats may 'donate' by announcing there intention not to play on the tourney page on Eliters Messenger. No tourney will be Started where 2 'donators' or more are needed to Start the tourney.
In 1x3 or 2x2 formats, no player should 'donate', with the exception of both partners in Partner Select tourneys.
While we recognise that, within reason, a players yeps are theirs to use as they please, we also recognise that players entering a tourney want to play competative game/s, and most likely wouldn't want to wait for a tourney to start, just to be advanced straight to a tourney win.
Therefore, TDs are instructed not to Start a tourney which needs 2 or more donators to Start. This will not affect players who may wish to enter, for example, Olympic tourneys and such and cannot be there to compete, or simply don't wish to.
Happy gaming All!!!
