Players who violate the following rules may be given a card or can be removed from this cup.
Yellow card : This card is given out for small rule violations. When a yellow card is given in some cases a match result could be changed in favor of the opposing player. Other than that, this card mostly is a warning. A second yellow card is to be considered as one red card.
Red card : The match in which they received this card will be changed into a forfeit loss. In some cases this card is handed out together with one or more player bans. A second red card falls in the category 'Two red cards' below.
Two red cards: A player that has been given two red cards will be kicked from the cup. In some cases a second red card is handed out together with player and/or an entire clan ban(s) for 1 or more seasons.
Only 1 card can be given for each match. In case of several violations only the most severe card will be handed out. However, all extra punishments for each of the rule that was violated are still applied. When a player is given a red card all previous given yellow cards are removed.
Abusive behaviour towards a Admin or Supervisor, Referee or opponent, at any time during the cup season, can be punished by the supervisor. Sanction: . If the abuse is severe a supervisor can also punish with a temporary or permanent removal from the cup of either the offending players or the entire clan.
The Clanleader or Teamcaptain is responsible for his own members knowing and following the rules. A Clanleader or Teamcaptain breaking the rules may incur penalties against the whole clan
2. Tournament Layout
You will play against each opponent in your group, playing one game per week. At the end of this group stage, the highest ranked clans will proceed to the playoff.
The cup is supervised by Cup Supervisors who are responsible for enforcing the rules, scheduling matches that aren't scheduled on time by the clans, and recruiting and coaching Referees and Writers. For any problems, contact the Cup Supervisors. If several Referees are signed up the Cup Supervisor(s) decides who will referee the match.
A Referee is someone who helps Supervisors during cups, he is not a part of and also not related to the ClanBase Crew and may not call himself a CB Admin. Referees are able to enter matchreports and matchresults for cup matches, outside that cup they are regular ClanBase users. Referees who abuse their position may be removed from the Referee lists. Referees are appointed by the Cup Supervisor. If you want to become a Referee, use the Admin Signup link in the cup menu and sign up there. You will also be required to supply further information such as evidence of your experience. Someone who is not (yet) appointed as a Referee may admin a match only if both clans are made aware of this and agree with it. A Referee makes sure the match is played according to the rules, records demos, takes screenshots, enters match results and makes match reports (with screenshots) on ClanBase.
5. Clans and Players
Clans who quit the cup or who are removed from the cup for 2 noshows/forfeits are likely to be excluded from the next cup season. Players always have to be easily identifiable to cup admins, opponents and spectators. Therefore, players must use easily identifiable nicks which are the same as (or very closely resemble) those registered on their Allowed Players List both on IRC and in-game. Sanctions: Yellow Card. A clan can use players during a match who are shown on their Allowed Players List and have not played in the same cup for another clan.
MOHAAC is needed. Every player must register their GUID on the GUID page before they play any matches.
7. Demos and screenshots
All players must record demos from the whole match in 2 parts (or 3 in case 3 maps are played). This means that you have to record a new demo on each map. This is due to the fact that admins or players can't rewind or fast forward their demo's. The exception to this rule is any match played in the TDM mod, in which players need to have 4 parts, one for each side (axis/allies) on each map. Demo's can be requested by other clans or supervisors. They have to be uploaded in 72hours after the request.
8. Server Settings
Checking the server settings is both clans' responsibility. If a certain setting is wrong they should alert the referee immediately. Matches will not be replayed or restarted because of a wrong setting that could have been reported before or in the beginning of the match. Match servers must have this mapfix installed. It is not allowed to change any server settings after the match has started without both clans agreeing to it. Failure in following this rule will result in a default loss of the match. The Nadefix mod has to be installed on the server. Download the mod here! All matches are to be played with Realism Mod CKR 1.1, and the following settings: set g_allowjointime 2 ;;; set timelimit 0 ;;; set fraglimit 0 ;;; set roundlimit 5 ;;; set g_teamdamage 1 ;;; set g_inactivespectate 0 ;;; set g_forcerespawn 10
MOHAAC ON! Only if both teams agree about a player to play without.
