RaidCall channel ItsGosu (ID: 4764084) during tournament play. It is through these channel that team captains will be able to contact each other to facilitate the playing of their matches. Admins will also be present in this chat channel to address any issues that may arise during play.

NOTE: This tournament is open to players and teams of all nationalities and backgrounds, and It's Gosu will do all we can to ensure that English-second-language players and little-or-no-English players are comfortable and can compete in a friendly environment. That said, English is to be considered the official language of this tournament, and though It's Gosu will make every effort to address any issues that may arise due to language barriers, we are under no inherent obligation to do so in the event that a team cannot understand the rules or respond to admin instructions. It is the ultimate responsibility of every team and player to ensure that they can communicate effectively with their opponents and with the admins of this tournament in English, or to make arrangements for a translator or go-between beforehand.

For organizational purposes, all team captains and team members must join RaidCall channel ItsGosu (4764084) during tournament play. It is through these channel that team captains will be able to contact each other to facilitate the playing of their matches. Admins will also be present in this chat channel to address any issues that may arise during play.


Game Rules:

All tournament games must be played in private, pass-worded lobbies. Either team in a given match-up may create the lobby, but all created lobbies must use the following preferences:

Game Mode: Tournament
Server Location: US East (default server, if teams agree on a different server, they may use it, but in the case of disagreement, US East must be used)
Bots: No
Cheats: No
Allow Spectators: No
Game Version: Latest
Lobby Password: 
Must be no longer than 10 characters, and shared with opponents

Once tournament play begins, it is the responsibility of team captains to facilitate play and their matches, and to contact teams whom they must play and create custom lobbies as needed. 

Once play begins, all players and teams are expected to proceed with play in as timely and organized a fashion as possible. No team or player may delay the start of their match by more than 15 minutes once a bracket match-up is established and captains have contacted each other. In the event that an opposing team does not respond or join a lobby for play within 15 minutes, captains must contact an admin who will then attempt to rectify the matter. If at this a time a team is still unable or unwilling to play, they will forfeit their match.

In a Best of 3 series, teams are permitted a maximum 5 minute break between games. In the event that an opposing team exceeds this time limit, a captain may contact an admin. The accused team will then by contacted by an admin and given an additional 5 minutes to prepare for the next game, or they will forfeit the round.

Format:

Day 1:
Round of 128 - Best of 1
Round of 62 - Best of 1
Round of 32 - Best of 3

Day 2:
Round of 16 - Best of 3
Round of 8 - Best of 3

The top four finishing teams from this tournament will advance to the Mini Madness Invitational. 

Reporting a Win:

It is the responsibility of the team captain on a winning team to report the results to a Bracket Admin. 

In addition to reporting the win, i
t is also the responsibility of a winning team captain to screen shot the victory screen (done via the Steam screen shot function, or by pressing the “print screen” or “prt sc” button on your keyboard and then pasting to Paint) immediately following a win in the case of a dispute where both teams report a win.

In the event that both team captains report a win and neither can produce a screen shot of the victory screen, the match will be replayed. In the event that a screen shot is used to prove that a losing team knowingly lied by attempting to report a win, that team and all of its players will be permanently banned from all future It's Gosu events. 


Code of Conduct:

While It's Gosu recognizes that the highly competitive nature of Dota 2 means volatile emotions and outbursts are a given, we also recognize that the foremost goal of any eSports organization must be creating a fun, fair, and comfortable environment for all of its members and competitors.

To that end, the following is forbidden during tournament play, and may result in varying degrees of punishment:

- Racial slurs and derogatory comments regarding the race of competitors
- Any comments in reference to sexual orientation
- Any derogatory comments regarding the nationality of competitors
- Any derogatory comments regarding a competitor's ability to communicate in English
- In-game flaming of an opposing team
- Out-of-game flaming of an opposing team in Steam chat

All instances of the above are to be reported to an admin immediately. 

A first offense will be met with a warning from an admin.

A second offense will result in disqualification of the player, who can be replaced by a team's listed substitute and no one else.

If a team which has already had a player disqualified commits another infraction, they will be immediately disqualified. If that team then decides to remain in the chat channel and continue flaming, it and all of its players will be banned from all future It's Gosu events.

 

PLEASE NOTE: Absolutely no players from professional teams and/or teams already invited to Mini Madness may be used as stand-ins or "ringers" for teams attempting to qualify via these open tournaments. If such behavior is discovered, any team attempting to use an illegal player as a stand-in will be immediately disqualified, and the offending player being used as a "ringer" will be prohibited from participating in this season of Monthly Madness. 

The IG Mini Madness Open will span two days (Saturday-Sunday).
