Rules

Player Requirements

All players must have an eligible GosuGamers.net account and an eligible Battle.net North American account to participate
Players need to be residents of one of the following countries of the Asia-Pacific region: Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, India, South Korea, Taiwan, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Macau and Japan
IMPORTANT: ​Only players from the SEA countries are eligible for the money prizes. Those countries are Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam and India
All players are responsible for resulting the games themselves through the ENTER RESULT button on the respective match pages
All players are required to take and keep screenshots of their victory and readily present them to admins in case of conflict
The top four players are required to submit their decks to tournament's admins by emailing Nydra on radoslav@gosugamers.net
Since there is no replay mode currently in the game, we implore players to keep to the spirit of fair play and to police themselves. In case of a conflict which can't decisively be judged in one player's favor or another's (i.e. screenshots are missing), an admin will have the final word.

Tournament Format

All matches are played in STANDARD
The tournament will be played in an expanded "Conquest" format
Each player can bring up to 1 deck per class (you cannot bring a Zoolock AND Handlock, you have to choose one)
​Players are allowed to request screenshots from their opponent as proof of the above rule. In that case, BOTH players have to provide screenshots of their line-ups and this is done AFTER THE DRAFTING PHASE
If a player has more than 1 deck per class prepared, his/her opponent can request that the extra decks are removed. In that case, both players are allowed to re-build their decks and then THE DRAFT IS REDONE.
Each player selects 3 classes for each series. The picking process goes like this:

​Player on the LEFT of the match page selects 1 CLASS
Player on the RIGHT then selects 2 CLASSES
Player on the LEFT selects 2 CLASSES
Player on the RIGHT selects 1 CLASS

When a player wins with a class, that class is locked and unable to be used for the remainder of the series
When a player loses with a class, he/she may choose to keep or change the class
Single elimination bracket
Best of 3 games until quarter finals
Best of 5 games for quarter, semi and grand finals

Penalization

The ticket system via the "REPORTS AND MESSAGES" button is the official channel of communication with GosuCup admins
Any evidence of win-trading will disqualify the player from the Tournament. “Win-trading,” is defined as intentionally losing a match with another player to advance one or the other’s rank;
After the first game in the match begins, if a player leaves the match lobby, or cancels the “game challenge”, or leaves the Hearthstone game client for any reason, it is considered a match forfeiture and the opposing Eligible Participant will win the match;
Additionally, once the starting hands are provided by the Hearthstone game client, if a player leaves the game for any reason, the player is considered to have forfeited the game, awarding his or her opponent one game point;
In the case of double disconnect, the game is to be remade. Exceptions include obvious and undisputable game-winning state for one of the player that can be proven with a screenshot;
If a player acts in collusion with another player to affect any results of the Tournament, or any matches that are part of the Qualification events for the Tournament, he or she may be disqualified from the Tournament;
If a player commits violent acts, or threatens to commit violent acts, against any other player in the Tournament, any admin, or any spectators of the Tournament, he or she may be disqualified from the Tournament;
If a player attempts to interfere with another player’s connection to the game service through Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) or any other means, he or she may be disqualified from the Tournament;
If any individual who is not the player plays on said person's Battle.net account in a Tournament game, the player may be disqualified from the Tournament;
If an admin deems player to have engaged in any unsportsmanlike behavior, the player may be disqualified from the Tournament.
