Match support

1) We had a bug on the app which had an impact on the result of our match

Please ping "@Online Referee" on Discord as soon as you had this kind of bug, please provide screenshots too. You can then decide with your opponent if you want to replay the match or ignore the bug. In case of disagreement, please contact "@BatTotoro" on Discord.

2) We need more time to finish our match

A referee will contact you if you did not register your score in time. Referee will have the full power of taking the decision on how to process.

3) I have not been able to contact my opponent

Please keep record of all communication as the match will be considered a draw unless you can prove your opponent was suitably unavailable. Then contact the referee channel as soon as you feel your opponent is not online. If your opponent do not show up before the first 10min after the round has been generated but show up later, you start the match with 1 point. If your opponent did not show up 20min after the start of the round, you take the win.

4) My opponent and I have a disagreement about who won after the match has already finished.

It is hoped that players will be honest about match wins and losses however, it is difficult for tournament organizers to intervene without evidence or proof. Players may wish to take screenshots to track game wins/losses or use other tracking tools to prevent disagreement. There is no way to rollback a game, so any misclick will be counted as a normal play.
