Competition format and regulations

All players are required to abide by and follow these rules.

  • The competition consists of a GSL Group Stage (Friday 17) + single elimination round (Saturday 18).
  • The standard format will be used.
  • All matches will be played on the European region.
  • Players may be added by the GameguneTV#2823 account to spectate their matches. Some of the matches will be recorded and broadcasted live.
  • After being called to play, players will open their accounts in their respective allocated PCs and once they are in the Select Deck screen, they will inform the admin which rival deck they want to ban (in case they are competing in the main stage) or they will approach the opponent’s PC and chose the deck (if they are competing outside the main stage).
  • In case there is a draw, the match will start again using same exact decks.
  • Players are required to exhibit good sportsmanship during the competition.
  • After any match or in case of disagreement during the match, players shall take a screenshot of the issue to facilitate the admin making the decision making.

Disqualification, cheating and prohibitions

Players must compete to the best of their ability at all times. Any form of cheating will not be tolerated.

  • Any kind of cheat will result in the disqualification of the tournament.
  • Players are not allowed to use the chat or any other external device during the matches. They will therefore have to set their account to busy status.
  • Players shall be called to play at the previously agreed time. If they are not there 10 minutes after the time agreed for their match, the player will be scored as “game lost”.
  • Players are not allowed to take notes during the match.
  • Listening to music is not allowed during the tournament. Except in the main stage which is mandatory.

Deck Lists

  • Each player shall submit their 4 decks lists in a document file changing the name of the deck with their battletag to Gamegune@gamegune.org before Tuesday 14th of November at 23:59h CET and may only use those starting hands during the tournament.

Deck list

  • There can be no more than one starting deck copy per hero.
  • Players must provide their own account and cards.
  • GameGune will publish all decks on Wednesday 15th of November.
  • Players may not access their collection or edit decks during the challenge. If they do so, they will lose a match (Sideboard Clause).

Additional information

These are the general rules of the tournament. However, organisers may make changes to these regulations to guarantee that the competition runs smoothly and that it is as enjoyable and fair as possible.
