Tourney General Rules Last Update: 7/2/2014

  • Players are responsible for familiarizing themselves with both the Game being played, and the Play Site where it is played. If a Player has any problems with the Play Site (GameColony, GameDesire, PlayOK, Pogo, and SafeHarbor), s/he should deal with the support Team for that Site.

  • Players are also responsible for reading and understanding clearly the Tourney Special Rules, before registration. Any mistake in applying or adhering to the Tourney Special Rules, for any reason or under any circumstances; will result in disqualification. RESTART of the game is strictly forbidden; any error will mean Automatic Disqualification.

  • Players are expected to be on time and ready to play at the beginning of the Tourney. Tardiness hinders the timely completion of Tourneys and is unfair to other Players. Please show respect for the League and its Players by arriving a little early for every Tourney. Please read carefully and abide by the Time Out Rules.
  • Players may register any ID they like in the Play Sites; however, it is highly advisable to have Your Play Site IDs identical to, or the nearest to, your Eliters ID.

    It is recommended to register in ALL Play Sites used by Eliters, well in advance, in order to save time when joining any League or Tourney, and Add your Play Site ID at Add Play IDs.
  • Players are expected to conduct themselves in a civil manner and treat all others with respect. Failure to do so is cause for disqualification from a Tourney. Repeated unacceptable behavior is cause for removal from the League. Obscene language, aggressive trash-talking, and taunting or denigration of other Players are examples of unacceptable behavior.
  • In Pogo Play Site, all tables should be made "Private", with the PW "eliters".

    In Other Play Sites, tables shall be made Public, but should anyone other than your opponent sit to play, then they should be booted after asking them to leave.

  • Tables will be Rated unless otherwise stated in “Tourney Special Rules”. Players are responsible to check the Table Setting; including the Points and other Settings; before starting the Game.

  • Reporting ... In all cases the losing opponent must report the Match result (see Reporting Match  es Results).
  • In Eliters RR and AA where the TD does all the reporting, it is mandatory that the losing Player reports the loss via Eliters Messenger. In 1x3 Tourneys, is required that the maker of the table invites the TD at the beginning of the Match  . Also, exceptionally, in some Leagues there is a specific rule in certain games that the Players should invite the TD to check the outcome in Unrated Matches; but this should be at the end of Match and not for the whole Tourney.

  • Discussion of strategy in Team Tourneys, publicly or by IM, during the play of a Match, is grounds for disqualification from the Tourney. It is perfectly acceptable to discuss strategy before the Tourney or between rounds, but all such discussion should end once the Match is in progress.

  • If you have any problem, invite the TD to your table, by posting a request on Eliters Messenger, or simply using room invites. Never air grievances either in the lobby or on Eliters Messenger.

  • Substitutes are permitted in Eliters Team Tourneys (2x2) with certain conditions (see Substitution Program).

  • Eliters uses a 5-minute "Delay Clock" for most Tourneys. See exceptions at Time Out.

  • Forced Forfeits (FF); are never allowed in Eliters without specific instructions from the TD. If your opponent is booted and the forfeit screen comes up, always use the “wait” option. If you FF and your opponent returns within the clock limit, you will be disqualified. If your opponent is Timed Out, the TD will request either the FF or a cancellation, depending upon how far advanced the Match was, and upon its likely result had it been completed.
  • Decisions and rulings of Eliters TDs (Tourney Directors) are FINAL and not open to debate.
  • Players may report if a TD did a fabulous job, or if they have a complaint regarding the TD behaviour or performance (see TD Evaluation and Feedback).
  • Be honest and fair in all that you do: that’s the most fun of all!
