Last change: 20.09.2012 15:39
These are the rules for the StarCraft II 1on1 Diamond+ Cup #76 (Tues 22.02.11). We make every effort to ensure the rules are complete and up to date but this may not always be the case. You should also check the Rules & Information and News for additions, exceptions and modifications that may apply. All players must meet the requirements listed in the Rules & Information at the time the match is scheduled to begin. The rules are a guideline and the decisions by admins may differ from them depending on the circumstances. If you have any questions about the rules, please write a support ticket.
1. Match media
All match media (screenshots, demos, etc) must be kept for at least 14 days. In general, you should upload the match media from a match to the match page as soon as possible. Faking or manipulating match media is of course forbidden and will result in severe penalties. Match media should be named clearly based on what it is. It is not possible to file a protest or write a support ticket to complain about bad match media naming. However, if an admin is hindered in their work because of bad match media names then it can be punished for.
Both players are responsible for uploading the replay of the match to the match page as soon as possible after the match.
2. Match rules
2.1.1. Player drops
If a player drops in the first 4 minutes of a match, and there has been no contact between opponents, the game is re-hosted.
After 4 minutes, or if there has been contact, the remaining side can offer to re-host the game, otherwise the replay must be uploaded and a protest opened for an admin to decide whether the game is re-hosted.
In general, a game is always re-hosted unless the remaining side had a significant advantage (very likely victory).
In a re-hosted game each player has to chose the same race as they picked in the original game.
2.1.3. Pausing the game
If a player pauses a game they must state the reason for the interruption and how long it will approximately take. The game can only be resumed by the player that paused the game after they asks their opponent if they are ready.
Violation of this rule are handled as unsportsmanlike behaviour and can lead to a re-game.
Observers are allowed only if both players agree. Exception to this rules are ESL admins and people that are explicitly allowed to observe by an admin (e.g. shoutcasters or streamer). Under no conditions is it allowed to play with referees other those decided by an admin.
Players should only allow observers they trust. It is not allowed to protest after a match to complain about observers that were allowed in the game.
The only way to surrender a match is to using the surrender function in-game. Saying "gg" or similar does not count as surrender. If your opponent types "gg" or similar while you believe they are at a disadvantage, you should continue to play to win, until the game is won, or they have surrendered.
2.1.6. Illegal Actions
Any actions that result in an unfair advantage are illegal. This includes bug using of any kind.
3. Penalty points
In general, a player can receive up to 6 penalty points, and a team up to 4 penalty points per match, unless a single violation has a higher punishment. A team is only punished once per violation, regardless of how many players. Where a player or team receives penalty points for multiple violations, the penalty points are added together.
