Note: Draws can occur in any unrated or rated game.


The opponent should respect the timer rules of Eliters. Therefore for example: If a player is booted, frozen, or has been disonnected, there will be a red table timer pop up by their ID, (GameDesire Automative Security Clock) then the player that is still seated shall first state the Eliters Timer on the player in question using the Eliters Messenger, and notify the TD. This will eliminate how long that the returning player was away.

Note: Be aware that if any player stands up in any game, or is totally disconnected from GameDesire, the game ends quickly. (No replays allowed) in order to keep the tourney flowing smoothly.
