These are the rules for the OD Tournaments. We make every effort to ensure the rules are complete and up to date but this may not always be the case. You should also check the discord or website for additions, exceptions and modifications that may apply. The rules are a guideline and the decisions by admins may differ from them depending on the circumstances. If you have any questions about the rules, please reach out to Dro4Sho(OD).

1. Rules and Format
1.1. Player Eligibility and Registration
You must be and OD member to register and compete in OD tournaments.  When registering online at Challonge.com, all players participating must enter their Overdosed ID. The OD account is needed to invite players into a custom match and to check if the correct player is playing.  Please enter your main/highest mmr race and your current mmr.  Players caught lying about their mmr, whether smurfing or boosting, are subject to disqualification.    You will be allowed to change races but only in between rounds.  Once your set has started you must remain the same race until it is finished (Terran, Protoss, Zerg, Random).
1.2. Player Names
OD reserves the right to edit Nicknames and/or URL aliases. Player names that are too similar to that of player are subject to be changed by OD.  Player information will not be allowed to change once a tournament has begun.

1.3. Game version
All players must install the newest version of the game in order to participate in OD tournaments. Updates must be installed before the tournament starts, so delays will be at a minimum.

1.4. Technical Issues
Players are responsible for their own technical issues (hardware/internet). Matches will not be rescheduled because of technical issues and matches will be played nevertheless. If the maximum pause time is exceeded, the game goes on, even if the issue is not solved yet.

1.5. Disqualification
To keep tournaments as efficient as possible, OD reserves the right to disqualify players. This will only be done in cases where a player purposefully stalls or attempts to block another player. In some scenarios both players may be affected. Any player found to be using a known exploit will forfeit their game upon the first occurrence of the exploit. If the player is found to use another known exploit for a second time and it is determined to have been done on purpose they will be removed from the event and possibly barred from any future events.

2.3. Game preparations
Try to reach out to your opponent as  soon as possible to schedule your set.  Each player is responsible for checking bracket updates and scheduling a time and date for thier set.  Please resolve any problems that might occur before a match starts. Connection or hardware problems during a match could lead to a disqualification by OD admins. Agreements between the players have to be posted as match comments. The match must be played with the right settings. Make sure all players are eligible to play.

2.4. Surrender
The only way to surrender a match is to using the surrender function in-game. Saying "gg" or similar does not count as surrender. If your opponent types "gg" or similar while you believe they are at a disadvantage, you should continue to play to win, until the game is won, or they have surrendered.

2.5. No show
If a participant is not ready to play 15 minutes after the scheduled match time, please reach out to Dro4Sho(OD). This is the fastest way to get your match checked to move on to the next round.

2.6. Forfeit
Participants can choose to forfeit a match if they wish. Forfeiting will result in loss of the match and possible penalty points.

2.7. Protests
If a match was incorrectly reported by your opponents, you have 15 minutes to protest the report. OD reserves the right to decrease or increase this period in case of drastic delays. Match protests must include media evidence clearly showing the results of the match/series. Players are responsible for providing proof of match results in case of disputes.

Players must play under their public nickname in-game.

3.2. Race switching
It is not allowed to switch the race during a series (Bo3, Bo5 etc), only before and after a series.  You will be allowed to change races but only in between rounds.

3.3. Race selection
If required by the opponent, a player must declare which in-game race he will be playing with before the veto process.

3.4. In-game Chat
Non-necessary in-game chat (spam) is forbidden and may be punished. This is especially true for aggressive or offensive language (flames, insults).

3.5. Breaks
5 minute breaks are allowed in between each map.

3.6. Rehost
If a player drops, the match must continue with the in-game tool "recover from replay" once contact with the opponent is made.

OD reserves the right to make judgement on cases not specifically covered by the rules in order to preserves the spirit of fair competition and sportsmanship. Conversations, either verbal or written, between organizers, admins, or referees, and participants are confidential. Publicly posting or sharing these conversations with outside parties is strictly forbidden, unless permission is obtained.

6. Match Media
It is recommended that the replays be saved in case information has been falsely reported.

7. Casting and Streaming

8. Penalty points

Ladder points are awarded to the top 8 players.

1st.  9 points
2nd.  7 points
3rd.  5 points
4th.  3 points
5th-8th.  1 point
10. Season.
Seeding will be based on MMR and ladder points earned by each player.  Each season will be 4 tournaments long, and an Overdosed Cup will be held at the end of every season.  Only the top 16 players of the season will be invited to attend.  The exact time frame is still up for debate and will be based on the schedule of the players participating.  After the Overdosed cup, ladder points will be reset and a new season will begin.
