  • General
    • Players are not allowed to leave the Duelling Screen (outside of exceptions like disconnections or bugs) until they have finished that particular series. The offending player will have to forfeit a match if he is deemed to have infringed the rule. In the event of a disconnection or a bug, do call a marshal to arbitrate.
    • A player will be given a match bye if his opponent is late by every 20 minutes.
    • No backseat gaming is allowed in the tournament.
    • Players are to use the decklists that they have sent; marshals will check them before every series.
    • Players found infringing the rules will be given an initial warning. Subsequent infringements may result in disqualification from the tournament.
    • The Chief Marshal will have the final decision in all matters.
    • Players are expected to send their decklists (3 classes) to hearthstonealley@outlook.com at least one day before the tournament! Priority in registration will be given to those who have done so (on a first-come-first-serve basis).
  • Disconnection
    • A rematch will be conducted if there is a disconnection (unless lethal is guaranteed); we encourage sportsmanship.

Group Stage

    • Priority to seeded players

  • Players are expected to verify for themselves that their opponent is playing one of their selected classes. In the event that your opponent is not playing any of his selected classes, do call a marshal to arbitrate.
  • The winning player will use a different deck – once a deck has won, it is no longer playable for the rest of the series. The losing player can continue to use any deck that has not won yet.
  • After each series, inform the group marshal (with your opponent) of the results.
