We have added a new rule into the tournament, after seeing how lasts week matches went. From now on the matches will last no longer then 15 minutes. At 15 minutes if no hero, or tower has been killed for either player, the player with the most damage to the middle tower will win. This means that exactly at 15 minutes which ever player has done more damage to the enemy's middle tower wins. Any damage has to be done before 15 minutes, if we need to use the replay option we will.

Tournament Administrators
-For each tournament, It’s Gosu will announce an official list of tournament admins, streamers, casters, and otherwise noted observers.  Tournament admins should be used as a primary means of contact to report any inquiries or issues with the event.

-Tournament admins will have final say in all matters.  Ignoring an admin’s instructors may result in a disqualification.

-In matters of a dispute regarding a match involving a cash prize, a council of admins will be selected to evaluate the problem and administer a remedy.

-The tournament will commence at a set time, during which all players intending to participate are expected to be online and ready to play.

-Players will be required to check in themselves before the posted start time of the tournament.  Failure to check in means you will not be able to participate.

-A general, tentative schedule will be posted with the approximate times of when each round should start.  Players are free to play next rounds if both teams are ready.

-The opening round of 256 players through the round of the finals, will be played on Sundays at the posted times.

Before the Match
-Players in different regions should decide on a neutral host location that is suitable for the match (server with the overall lowest ping for both players).

-Players in the same region should use a server located in that region.

-If the players cannot agree upon a neutral host location then the server will be decided by a match admin.

-No observers or referees are allowed in a match unless they are match admins, shoutcasters, or streamers. It’s Gosu will announce a list of official match admins, casters and streamers. If a match admin allows or denies someone for any reason, that ruling must be followed.

-If a team does not show up for a match within 15 (fifteen) minutes of the scheduled time they will forfeit. Match admins or the opposing team can extend this time period.

-If the both players of the match decide they want the same side (Legion,HB) you will have to roll to decide who gets to pick. The higher roll out of 100, will get to decide which team he is on.

Game Settings
-Game Mode: All Pick, 1v1, Forests of Caldavar.

-Game Options: All Heroes, Tournament Rules, Dev Heroes, Duplicate Heroes, No Stats, and No Power Ups .

-Prior to the tournament, a hero will be selected for each round. This hero is to be picked and played by both players.

*(New Rules Must Read) Match Rules-
- The first player to either kill his opponents  middle tower or hero will win the match. This means if you get the blood lust kill before your opponent you win. If no player was killed by the time the middle tower is destroyed, whoever lost the tower will lose the match.

-If the game reached the 15 minute mark, the player who dealt most damage to the enemy middle tower wins; if the towers have the same health points, the player with the most creep kills wins; if that fails to decide the winner, the player with the most creep denies win.

-After the 15 minute mark, nothing you do can change the outcome of the match.

- Each player is required to play the hero preselected by the tournament Admins. This is a mirror match, so both players will be playing the same hero.

- Power-ups will be turned off, meaning no runes will spawn. This does not mean you cannot buy a bottle.

- You may not gather experience or gold in any lane except the middle. If you kill jungle creeps or switch to a different lane you will automatically forfeit the match.

*During the Match
-In the case of a dispute, the match can be paused in an effort to contact a tournament admin.

-Teams are allowed to remake if they can successfully agree to pass a remake vote.

-If a player drops from the game, you are required to pause the match immediately. This means if you see your opponent disconnect you must pause for him.

-If a Player is disconnected for a total of 5 minutes, the player will be withdrawn from the tournament. In this situation the player who is still in the match will get the win.

After the match
- A player wins once a he/she gets the blood lust kill, is the first to destroy his opponents tower or after the 15 minute mark, he/she has the advantage.

-The match ID and results need to be reported to Gogul in-game via whisper or IM (not on the chat channel).

-It’s Gosu will select designated streamers that will be allowed into the matches.  No other streams / casters will be allowed as observers.

-Live streams will have a delay server activated to prevent ghosting, or they will be casting from recently submitted replays.
