Rules And Settings

General Rules
1. All Players must respect the tournament schedule and times for each round. A no show 20 minutes after the scheduled time will result in an admin loss
2. If both Player cannot come to an agreement in scheduling their match, the staff will analyse the situation, schedule, and time zones in order to add a viable Admin Time that suits both players to the best of our ability.
3. When scheduling all times must be discussed using date and time in GMT time. Check your time in GMT here
4. Every Player must respect their opponent. Bad behaviour (determined by staff) will result in a warning and may lead to an immediate disqualification of a Player. This tournament values not only great skills, but also sportsmanship and fairness. Any insult, racism or flaming will not be tolerated. Laming and mind games in game are allowed.
5. All Players have agreed to the No Smurf rule. Smurfing and account sharing is not allowed. Any discovery of the mentioned will result in Team disqualification.
6. All games MUST be played on Age of Empires 2: HD Edition on steam using all expansions.
7. After the games have been played the winning Player must post the recorded games to the AoCZone subforum, No Recorded games, means NO WIN. If they recorded games are lost the games must be replayed, no matter the result of the previous.
8. All the games must be scheduled and confirmed by both Players on an AoCZone scheduling topic in the relevant subforum.
9. In case of disconnections, the game must be saved and restored. All of the .aoe2record recorded game files (multiple parts of the game before/after drop) must be provided when posting the recorded games.
If restoring is not possible, the recorded game should be provided, along with any additional information to the Admins on the AoCZone subforum
10. Once two Players have arranged and confirmed a time to play, the maximum waiting time is 20 minutes. If one of the PLAYERS fails to arrive, the waiting team must take a screenshot showing (so the current time is clearly visible) with the Lobby Game Room and post the screenshot in the respective scheduling thread with a link to the post in the Scheduling forums where the game time was arranged and confirmed. This way, tournament admins will know how long the team waited and upon Admins decision, the Player that did not come might get an Admin Loss for the games. Do not try to edit time arrangement posts in an attempt to get free wins, because the forum registers the exact date and hour of each edited post. Such actions are considered cheating, and the offender will be punished according to rules.
11. If a game is not recorded, it must be replayed regardless of result and evidence of it.
12. Each Player MUST be fluent in English and is responsible for scheduling, possible disputes, and everything else regarding their participation. Can go google Translate
13. New rules can be added and current rules can be changed. However, Admins MUST inform the Players about such changes on the AoCZone subforum.
14. No Player will be allowed to refuse the presence of an official tournament streamer (Only 1 per game taking lag in consideration). Players must be messaged beforehand.
15. Players must only sign up one account and No smurfing is Tolerated
