In the event of a disconnect/dispute, please submit replays to COH2.ORG for an evaluation by a referee. They will either declare a winner, or facilitate a rematch.
I will try to cast as many series as I can (live or otherwise) but, obviously, I will only be able to cast so many! I encourage other casters to pick up the tourney games if they want. I'll be streaming all casts live on Twitch and uploading videos afterward on YouTube.

If you need a break between games, notify your opponent. Your breaks must not exceed 15 minutes, including any delay in contacting your opponent. Taking excessive breaks or otherwise delaying the tournament may result in disqualification. When it is time to play, contact with your opponent immediately and begin your games. If your opponent does not show up for 15 minutes, they will forfeit the round. Contact a referee and you will be advanced.
