rules
By signing up you agree to everything that is stated in this document. Rules are unlikely to change by the time the league starts, but some appendixes are possible. In case such changes happen, you will have an additional day to remove from the tournament if you find a deal breaking change.

Cup start date: Sunday, June 14th, 2015 @ 17:00 CEST.

Compared to the league, the cup rules are significantly simpler.

IN CASE OF LESS THAN 32 SIGNUPS THE CUP WILL BE CANCELED. ALSO THE SIGNUPS WORK ON FIRST COME FIRST SERVE BASIS, MEANING THERE MIGHT BE PLAYERS THAT DON'T GET TO PLAY DUE TO NOT ENOUGH PEOPLE TO MAKE THAT EXTRA TEAM.

1) You have until Sunday, 14th, 16:00 CEST to sign up
2) Captains will pick the teams the moment signups close and teams of 4 will be made
3) The cup starts on the same day, 17:00 CEST
4) Accounts with less than 500 games played will be removed from the cup to prevent the fakenicking
5) The map pool is the QuakeCon one: Infinity, Ironworks, Japanese Castles, Pillbox, Spider Crossings
6) Cointoss winner picks first. In case of a tiebreak cointoss again
7) The format of the tournament is double elimination
8) Winner bracket is bo3, loser bracket bo1 until LB finals which is also bo3
9) The grand finals is bo5 with team coming from WB having a 1 map advantage
10) Be on #qldrafts irc channel on cup date at 16:00 CEST LATEST
11) Whoever is not on the channel by 16:00 CEST will be considered as not having checked in and thus removed from the cup

Players are required to record all the demos of games they played and have them available at least 1 week after the cup has ended. Please have a valid reason for requesting the demo and remember that you getting killed in a weird situation is most likely not that valid reason. Basically, if you think someone cheats/cheated you should be able to explain why. If you can't, don't even bother with requesting demos. Forward all your demo requests to the admins which in turn will evaluate your request and if it seems reasonable will get the demo for you. Keep all the suspicions that you might have from watching the demos to yourself or email them to support@quakelive.com along with the demo. As there is no official anti-cheat tool publicly available, the admins won't ban anyone unless id Software bans them first. Failing to provide a demo upon admin request will result in a kick from the current tournament.

Spectators are allowed on server.

That's it. Good luck and have fun.
