A civilization may not be repeated within a single series of games. This rule does not apply to civilizations rolled in a team random game.

In the round of 16 and the quarter-finals both players have 1 restart. In the semi-finals and the finals both players have 2 restarts. A restart has to be called before 5 minutes. If a map is bugged the map may be restarted before 5 minutes. A map counts as bugged if berries, gold or stone has less than half of its tiles accessible, or if the sheep, boar or deer are stuck in a forest or are otherwise inaccessible.

If there are 32 sign ups, the round of 32 will be played with the same settings as the round of 16.

Tournament Rules and Settings:
[Show] Spoiler:
All players must respect the Tournament schedule and times for each round. There will be NO exceptions or delays granted to ANY player. No excuse will be accepted for failing to play in the specified time. If the admins determine that a player is trying to avoid scheduling and playing the tournament games, the player may be warned, receive an admin loss for the game or match or be disqualified from the NWB.

If both players cannot come to an agreement in scheduling their match, tournament staff will analyze the situation, schedule, and time zones, in order to add a viable Admin Time that suits both Players, to the best of our ability.

Every player must respect their opponent. Bad behavior (determined by staff) will result in a warning and may lead to an immediate disqualification. Racism and discrimination will not be tolerated. Laming and mind games in game are allowed.

Smurfing and account sharing is not allowed. Any discovery of the mentioned will result in a disqualification.

Players are allowed to stream their own games. The spectator delay can be set up to 5 minutes.

All games are by default to be played in the Tournament Lobby using the VCOM Ladder. Most important, all games of a match must be publicly downloadable from Voobly.

After a match, the winner must immediately upload the recordings to aoczone.

Matches can be scheduled any way the players want, but the time and date has to be confirmed in an aoczone scheduling thread.

In case of disconnections, the game must be saved and restored. All of the .mgz 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. Subsequently, facts will be analyzed and a final decision made.

Once two players have arranged and confirmed a time to play, the maximum waiting time is 30 minutes. If one of the players fails to arrive in time, the waiting player must take a screenshot showing (so the current time is clearly visible) with the game room, and send the screenshot to an admin. Do not try to edit time arrangement posts in an attempt to get free wins, because our forum registers the exact date and hour of each edited post. Such actions are considered cheating, and the offender will be punished.

Goal is always to have games played. After your opponent fails in showing up you have to reschedule the games. If someone fails twice to be in time during the whole tournament, he'll get instantly disqualyfied.

If a game is not recorded, it must be replayed regardless of result and evidence of it.

By signing up for the tournament you agree to have all your games streamed and casted by any streamers and co-casters through using the Spectator Mode on Voobly, brought by the Userpatch 1.4 RC version. The streams will always have a delay to avoid cheating. There is no assurance of your games being streamed, but the possibility is there at all times. Spectating is allowed for anyone as long as both players agree.

New rules can be added and current rules can be changed (including gaming rules). However, Admins MUST inform the Players about such changes.
