to Meet Minimum Match Requirements:
even after 15 minutes after the "official" match time, a clan cannot get
at least 4 players on server, that clan either plays short, or forfeits.
If another player shows up DURING the match, s/he is not allowed
to join until in-between rounds.
Rules on Server:

a clan continues to break the agreed to rules. Ejection's must
be ok'd by the council first, but the match is suspended until such

will be conducted similarly to the main tourney, but is optional.
There is no rescheduling allowed. Any interested clan has a
main team and one or two backup teams. The teams have FIXED
members. If one person on a team is having problems, either play
on, or send in another team, not another player.
in the main tourney, playoffs will be held.

1. Match Setup:
matches are best 2 out of 3 ctf on a clanring server, set to DM1 (i.e.
weapons disappear after being picked up, and re-spawn at given time
is 20 minutes per round, unless both clans agree to otherwise.
team is picks one map, while the other team picks a color, and vice versa,
and the tiebreaker is one of the following three (voted on by the
WW1 council as the standard 3rd round maps):
ctf2m (not yet determined)
clans must agree to the chosen 3rd round board. If an agreement cannot
be reached, a WW1 official will pick for them. The official
will try to pick the board least played by both clans combined.
The third round board may NOT be a map chosen for either of the previous
match setup, including main server and 1 -2 backups, as well as date and
time MUST be submitted to officials at least 24 hours in advance.
one clan fails to show up without prior notice at least 2 hours in advance,
a forfeit is called. If at least 2 members show, they can play
a 4v2 if they so choose.
is standard, but a match can go as low as 4v4, or as high as 6v6.
Match size conforms to clan with least amount of members, down
to 4. If a clan cannot get 4 members, 15 minutes after the
match time, they forfeit, or play shorthanded.

This way, any potential server problems, player problems, or other
problems can be identified, and worked out in due time.
can be rescheduled up to 2 times, but must take place within 1 week of
the original date. To reschedule, notification of the match
cancellation must be given to both the other clan, AND an official
AT LEAST 2 hours in advance.
demo should be taken of EVERY match. The WW1 official can do this
upon request, but the clans can agree on an observer taking the demo.

players. Switching rapidly back and forth between players should
a clan's demo taker fails to do so, all future demos will be taken by officials,
or the other clan.
WW1 official is the only required observer. More observers must be
agreed upon by both clans.

are not intended to restrict or limit, but to make the tourney smooth
and enjoyable for all.

1. On Server:
goes on in messagemode 2 is your business, BUT, slandering, cursing, and
name calling are NOT tolerated. There is no reason to do so,
as it doesn't change a thing, and any gripes can be sent to the council
afterwards. Officials will issue warnings, then begin suspending
players or the clan.
clans are expected to show class and be gracious winners or losers, even
in blowouts. In short: "Shut up and play."

clan is expected to FINISH every match. If a clan leaves early (probably
because they are losing badly), they automatically forfeit, AND are
suspended from the next match.
2. Off Server:
pages will be checked for slandering, etc. Disputes will generally
be kept between clans, but if they spread, WW1 officials will intervene
and issue warnings, etc...
less than 2 members show up.
a clan is short, and will not play.
a clan leaves a match early.
the second rescheduling fails.
a clan is disqualified for any reason.
no cheaters. It is pathetic that some people have to resort to cheating
to feel good about themselves. If any member of a clan is caught
cheating, the ENTIRE CLAN is ejected from the tourney.
ejection results from faking a ping, or having an ejected/suspended player
come back and play again (even under a different name).
other cheating suspicions are to be brought to the council which will review
demos, or anything pertinent that can be found.
clan can only bring suspicions of cheating to the council 3 times and not
have the other clan found guilty. After the third unsuccessful
time, the clan is suspended for a match for wasting the council's

a player is suspended, he/she is not allowed to play in, or observe the
next match, and is expected to quietly leave the current one.
More than 2 suspensions, and the player is ejected.
same rules apply to a clan, but also result in forfeiture of any involved
from severe and/or repeated breaking of any rules.
ejected, the player is expected to leave quietly, and is not allowed to
play again until the next season, unless council approved.
an ejected player is found playing without approval, or caught doing so
under a different name, the entire clan is ejected!
a clan is ejected, it is expected to leave quietly as well. All matches
it has played, or has yet to play, become wins for the other team.
tourney is supposed to be HPB only, unless both clans agree to a mixed
match. The 2v2 rounds can also be lpb, but hpb is encouraged.
Ping times SHOULD NOT drop below a 200 for more than one or two seconds
every once in a while.
Clan Member Listing:
clan is to submit a list of 20 members max. that will play in the tourney.
Members not listed therein, but found playing, can be cause for a
1 match suspension of a clan. A warning is issued first, then
the suspension will follow if the warning is not heeded. The reason
this rule was instituted was to avoid "recruiting just for a match".
