News and Discussion

  • Americas Playoffs results
  • Apxvoid DQ – Ivenglobal article that covers it very well
    • Round 7 vs Ant he was DQ’d under Rule 7.11a
      • Stream Sniping, or any general attempt by a player to spectate his own match or get information from another person spectating the match.
    • APXVoid’s take on the incident & apology.
      • “So it was the final round of Swiss and my match was selected to be one of the spectated side matches, and coincidentally the person sitting next to me was selected as well. This means that we both have to wait a few minutes in the deck selection screen before we are told by an admin to start the game. So as the minutes went by I was getting more and more nervous thinking about matchup, until eventually without thinking much about it i typed into the hct admin message box (without pressing enter to send) something along the lines of: “do I play for hard fatigue in the warrior matchup”. I was hoping the person sitting next to me would see this message on my screen and give me a nod or something to ease my anxiety a bit. (I typed it instead of asking out loud since I didn’t want to distract nearby players who were busy playing) This is where I broke the rules, but I was so focused on thinking about my match that I didn’t really process that I was breaking a rule. I already knew the answer to that matchup question and I have no idea why I typed it since I can ask that literally any other time, so before anyone even had a good chance to see it I minimized it and forgot about it and then a few seconds after I was notified that I could begin my game. Once that game ended I typed enter to tell the admin my next class pick but before I could type I guess I pressed enter twice and managed to send the message from earlier to the admin which lead them to disqualify me under the suspicion of cheating.”
