General rules:
If a dispute occurs, it will be up to the general crowd’s discretion. That being said, TO will have the final word should there be any unresolved dispute. TO has authority to take whatever course of action he sees fit.

Once your match has been called out, you have 10 minutes to start the match.
After 10 minutes, the TO will give authority to the opponent who is on standby the choice to DQ, after an additional 5 minutes (total 5 minutes) you will automatically be DQed.

If you need to step out, ask the TO, if timing allows, permission will be given to move your match to a later time where you will be given another timer. (eg. come back in 20 minutes) If you do not come back within the time given for your break, your absence will be treated as if you didn’t tell the TO and your 10 minute timer will begin as stated above(leave your phone number to be safe).

See you all at Overture 12!
