General Rules for all RoosterTeeth Tournaments
1. These tournaments are for fun and have no value of any kind. There will be no prizes for winners unless otherwise explicitly stated. Prizes are not allowed for member created tournaments. There will be an extremely low tolerance for whining.
2. Tournaments fall into two categories: Individual and Teams. All players must have a RoosterTeeth.com profile with a valid gamertag in their profile. In a team-based tournament, all teams must additionally create a RoosterTeeth.com Group. It's not hard. People make dumb ones all the time.
3. Each tournament has its own forum should have four threads in the forum: Rules, General Discussion, Applications & Reporting. Rules will have a copy of the General Rules (you're reading it) in the first post and additional Specific Rules as created by the Tournament Organizer. Applications are for requesting to participate in the tournament and Reporting is for informing the Organizer of wins. Being able to use a forum properly is the lowest common denominator of intelligence. If you screw that up, don't expect anyone to want you in their tourney.
4. Unless otherwise stated all tournaments are to take place in one day, with continuous play. This could mean several hours dedicated to playing videogames. Poor you. A tournament of 32 will have at most five matches for the winner, with some waiting for your next opponent. Keep that in mind. A Halo 3 tournament could take 1.5 hours and a Civilization tournament could take several years. Pack a lunch.
5. The person or team who is higher in the bracket is the person who sets up the match. They make the lobby and send an invite to their opponent. We recommend that each tournament also make a "gameday" thread for people to communicate with each other. You can use Xbox Live or email if you want, but we have no way to verify those messages in the case of a dispute.
6. After the match, the winner should report the win to the Results thread and the Organizer will update the bracket. Each Organizer may have different methods for reporting Results. This should be listed in the Results thread.
7. These General Rules will be updated frequently. There will be a place for you to check for the latest rules soon.
8. We plan on instituting a rating system for both players and organizers soon. People who are rude, whiny, absent or generally disorganized will be rated lower and excluded from future tournaments. So behave yourself, you filthy animal.
