Tournament rules enforcement - Competitive REL (as recommended by WotC Tournament rule policy) Extract from WotC Tournament rules policy: “Competitive tournaments are usually those with significant cash prizes or invitations awarded to Professional tournaments. Players are expected to know the game’s rules and be familiar with the policies and procedures, but unintentional errors are not punished severely. These are tournaments that protect the interests of all players by providing tournament integrity while also recognizing that not all players are intimately familiar with Professional-level tournament structure, proper procedures, and rules. Infractions in these tournaments are covered by the Magic Infraction Procedure Guide, located at http://wpn.wizards.com/document/magic-infractionprocedure-guide” It is to be noted that most of comprehensive ‘in game’ rules are governed and controlled by the MtG Arena interface itself. In order to maintain the spirit by which these events are intended to be played, specific focus will be placed on the elements outside the scope of MtG Arena as well as situations that may arise specifically due to the nature of the medium being used to play Magic the Gathering. NB! Should any player be unsure or feel something untoward has happened during a game they are currently, please do not hesitate to contact the event team immediately to investigate so that a fair judgement can be made for all players concerned. Adam Prevo’st, Crispin Stopforth and Anchen Lin (T.O) will be in all Sub groups aswel as Judge group and Discord (where participants in question will be invited to, to resolve the matter)
