SCHEDULING GAMES

Contact opponent and schedule a specific time within 48 hours of advance. If scheduled time surpasses the 48-hour deadline notify admin of the time. The primary form of communication is GroupMe, via the main chat, DM, or texting. If you set a time to play and you're not going to be able to make it to the time agreed upon, please let your opponent and an admin know AHEAD of the scheduled game. That way, your opponent doesn't have to sit around waiting on you to not show up. If you do not notify the proper people in advance, and end up missing scheduled game by over 15 minutes your opponent WILL QUALIFY for an auto win. This is common courtesy, no one likes to be left hanging to play, so please just take the 20 seconds or so to let your opponent know you will be late or have to reschedule prior to the original set time.

•If a User misses 3 games in a row they will be placed on Auto for inactivity.

Forced Win rule:

•Opponent doesn’t respond within 48 hours to schedule, doesn’t offer availability within 36 hours, or is 15 minutes late for scheduled game.

•If Disconnect occurs and opponent accepts defeat instead

•If Opponent is on Auto or a CPU Controlled Team
