Missing Invites: If you fail to accept your invite then you will be immediately eliminated and your opponent will go through by default
12 Hour Rule: To make it fair, if the 2nd player to join the game gets to start the game then he must either wait 12 hours or until his opponent posts an all-clear message before taking his turn. Should the 2nd player to join the game not get to start the game, then the 1st person to join need only wait 30 minutes after the 2nd person joins. It is up to the player to advise me if there has been any contravention of this rule. If a legitimate concern is raised, then the game will not count as a win to the starting player and will have to be played again. Ignoring the rule in the replay will result in disqualification.
This is a continuation of the It's a Knockout series, which carries General Achievement medals for the series winner and the most consistent player across all the tournaments.
