Substitution Rules Modified
The rules relating to team, DE, RR and SRR tourneys have been modified and updated as follows:
If the Sub's team loses the match, the Sub is never officially entered in the Tourney, and therefore will be allowed to register again on the Sub List; at the bottom. Registered Players in the Tourney should never be allowed to register in the Sub List, even if they lost or Disqualified for any reason.
In a Double Elimination (DE), Super Robin (SR), or Round Robin (RR), even if the first match played by the Sub is lost, the Sub will continue to replace the original Player in the Elite Tourney Standings and for all matches including the lost one.
This should not apply if the match is the final in DE, or the Tie breaker in RR; the Sub should only replace the missing Player if s/he wins; i.e. to follow the original practice of placing the Sub once they win and before reporting the match.
In a 1x3 Tourneys (Hearts), the TD should follow the original practice of placing the Sub once they win and before reporting the match.
