IOC Rules & Settings


General Rules
  1. All Teams must respect the tournament schedule and times for each round. This is a team event and there will be NO exceptions or delays granted to ANY Team. No excuse will be accepted for failing to play in the specified time.

  2. If both Team cannot come to an agreement in scheduling their match, the staff will analyse the situation, schedule, and time zones in order to add a viable Admin Time that suits both Teams to the best of our ability. Admins will ensure teams are not forced to play games between 2am - 6am local time.

  3. When scheduling all times must be discussed using date and time in GMT time. Check your time in GMT here [You must login to view link]

  4. Every Team Member must respect their opponent. Bad behaviour (determined by staff) will result in a warning and may lead to an immediate disqualification of a whole Team. This tournament values not only great skills, but also sportsmanship and fairness. Any insult, racism or flaming will not be tolerated. Laming and mind games in game are allowed.

  5. All Team Leaders have agreed to the No Smurf rule. Each Team must submit all relevant player usernames for Admin discussion. Smurfing and account sharing is not allowed. Any discovery of the mentioned will result in Team disqualification.

  6. All games MUST be played in the Voobly Tournament Lobby using the VCOM Ladder.

  7. During the Inter Open Cup immediately after completion of each match, the winning Team MUST post the game match links for the tournament games in the Inter Open Cup Recorded Games section of that respective round.

  8. All the games must be scheduled and confirmed by both Teams in the Inter Open Cup Scheduling Forums, informing the other Team of the exact date and time of the arranged games.

  9. In case of disconnections, the game must be saved and restored. All of the .mgz recorded game files (multiple parts of the game before/after drop) must be provided when posting the recorded games.
    If restoring is not possible, the recorded game should be provided, along with any additional information to the Administration of the Inter Open Cup instantly. Subsequently, facts will be analysed and a final decision made.

  10. Once two Teams have arranged and confirmed a time to play, the maximum waiting time is 30 minutes. If one of the teams fails to arrive, the waiting team must take a screenshot showing [You must login to view link] (so the current time is clearly visible) with the Intermediate Player Lobby Game Room and post the screenshot in Admin Requests topic, with a link to the post in the Scheduling forums where the game time was arranged and confirmed. This way, tournament admins will know how long the team waited and upon Admins decision, the team that did not come might get an Admin Loss for the games. Do not try to edit time arrangement posts in an attempt to get free wins, because the forum registers the exact date and hour of each edited post. Such actions are considered cheating, and the offender will be punished according to rules.

  11. If a game is not recorded, it must be replayed regardless of result and evidence of it.

  12. Each Team Leader MUST be fluent in English and is responsible for scheduling, possible disputes, and everything else regarding their participation.

  13. New rules can be added and current rules can be changed. However, Admins MUST inform the Teams about such changes in the Inter Open Cup Rules & Settings thread. All the latest additions in Rules & Settings will be in red.

  14. No Team will be allowed to refuse the presence of any spectators, but they may ask to have the spectator delay increased up to 10:00 minutes. If either Team wants the spectator delay increased then it must be increased, it does not require an agreement between both teams. Teams MUST wait for the majority of spectators to finish before starting the next game

  15. Players may only sign up for, and play for a single team.

No sorry. Civs must be different for each player on a team.

Thanks for pointing that out. :)
