6.  Player Conduct

The Gravitational cup is intended to be a positive and enjoyable experience for all participants, and the hope is that the player conduct will align with that principal. While we cannot govern what players do outside of the tournament, it is expected that while players participate in the tournament, they shall abide by a few rules of conduct:

No harassment of any sort, to any other participants, through any channels of communication during the duration of the tournament.

No intentional unsportsmanlike conduct. This can include actions such as refusing to participate in map vetoes/picks, refusing to join game lobbies, etc.

Any player misconduct should be reported to only the members listed in the “Admins” list earlier in this document.

All decisions regarding player misconduct shall be made at the discretion of the tournament administrators.

Players engaging in misconduct will first receive a warning, and any additional misconduct will result in disqualification from the current tournament, as well as a temporary ban from one subsequent Gravitational Cup tournament.

7.  Broadcast Information

The official tournament broadcast can be found on www.twitch.tv/Gravity620. Due to time constraints, it is not guaranteed that all tournament matches will be broadcast.

Players are allowed to broadcast their personal tournament matches, however do so at your own risk as it may expose you to stream cheating, which we cannot moderate. The official stream will have an adequate delay on it, but player streams will have no restrictions.

This bracket is a preview and subject to change until the tournament is started.
