Disconnection: any connection loss between opponents due to system, network, PC, and/or power problems/issues.
Intentional disconnection: any connection loss between opponents due to a player’s actions. Upon the referee’s discretion the offending player may be given a yellow card or immediately charged with a default loss.
When the game is disconnected, the player must inform it to the referee by raising their hand.
When disconnected, the criteria of the decision will be the before and after engagement (1 dead player = After engagement)
Case 1: If the game is disconnected before engagement
Disconnected player must re-connect to the server within 2 minutes.
If the disconnected player cannot connect to the server, the match must be restarted.
Case 2 : If the game is disconnected after engagement
Disconnected player must re-connect to the server.
If the disconnected player cannot connect to the server, one of the following solutions may be adopted:
Mutual match restart: Both players agree to a match restart.
Decisive winner: If a player does not agree to a match restart the winner can be determined by the chief referee after match analysis.
Referee restart: If the match analysis does not provide a decisive winner the players must restart the match or choose to forfeit.
Case 3: If more than three players are disconnected unintentionally due to the sever problem, the match will not be counted and the next match will be proceeded after the committee ensures that the sever status is green.
If the player abuses the rule intentionally, under the referee’s decision, the game may end as forfeit.
The following actions are considered unfair play, which can be penalized by yellow card, forfeit or disqualification at the discretion of the referee:
the use of any unapproved/cheat/map hack program
an intentional disconnection
the use of any settings exceeding the standard and permitted settings
any “unnecessary chatting” during the match.
“Unnecessary chatting” refers to any chatting other than the listed cases: I. greeting messages between the players; II. repeat of “P” to request for a pause during a stage match; III. a signal for the loss (i.e.: ‘gg’, ‘GG’, or any other message that the referee can use to decide the winner); IV. chatting between players that does not violate the unsportsmanlike behavior clause; V. any message that the referee deems as part of the game.
Intentionally losing a match.
If a referee decides that external conditions (Press, Team Leader, Player, Spectator, etc) are giving or have given an unfair advantage to a player, the player may be given a warning or lose by default at the referee’s sole discretion.
Unsportsmanlike behavior or, in general, disruptive (e.g., shouting), inappropriate and/or unprofessional actions directed towards another player (even inside the game).
The use of a program bug that is determined by the board of referees as being unfair.
Upon discovery of any player committing any violations regarded as unfair play, the offending player, at the sole discretion of the board of referees, may receive a warning, a forfeit loss or, in extreme cases, be disqualified from the tournament.
During the course of the Grand Final, the board of referees may determine other actions to embody unfair play.
Stage Match (Offline Tournament)
WARGAMING may designate certain matches to be played on stage. Refusal to play on stage may result in a default loss for the player unwilling to play on stage.
WARGAMING may request a change of the monitor aspect ratio or resolution for broadcasting purposes.
Any players playing on stage must wear their team uniform or the stage match uniform provided by WARGAMING. Refusal to wear the official stage match uniform may result in a default loss.
All players must wear the headphones provided by WARGAMING and the game sound volume may only be adjusted only when a referee is present.
A player may request to pause the game should a problem emerge during a stage match. The referee shall pause the game through the Observer and check the reason for the pause.
The request to pause a stage match must be made by sending a repeated “P” through the in-game chat. In case there is a problem with the keyboard input, the player may request to pause the game by raising his or her hand.
The players may not arbitrarily pause the game during a stage match. In case this occurs, depending on the severity of the situation and when the pause occurred, the referee may decide to issue a warning or loss by default decision.
After reviewing the reason for a pause, if the referee deems the pause unnecessary the referee may decide to issue a warning or loss by default decision.
If a player disrupts game play through “unnecessary chatting” during a stage match, the player may be given a warning, loss of the match by default, or eliminated from the competition at the referee’s discretion. (“Unnecessary Chatting” is defined in the “Unfair play” section of these rules.)
