When you sign up to these tournaments, I take it as agreed that you will read and follow the rules as set out in the It's A Knockout!!! tournament forum
12 Hour Rule: (If indicated in the label) To make it fair, if the 2nd player to join the game gets to start the game then he must wait 12 hours before taking his turn or until his opponent posts an all-clear message (proviso does not apply to freestyle games, where the game is not considered on until the full 12 hours have passed). Breaking this rule will lead to disqualification from the tournament. For manual deployment games, this rule will apply to Round 2 instead of Round 1.
