With regionals getting underway and the possibility of rules disputes getting more and more heated, @SneakySly @mediohxcore and I have decided that it’s time for the TOs of the community to get together and create our own guidelines for resolving rules disputes so there can be a widely agreed-upon set of penalties to use in future competitive events. The issues we think will be most difficult to penalize consistently and fairly are credit pool disputes, rearranging hidden zones, timing windows during the corp’s turn, takebacks, and revealing hidden info.
Obviously, if FFG comes out with an official guide of their own, we’ll retire this effort, but I think it’s a safe assumption that since we hadn’t seen one at the beginning of regionals season, we’re probably on our own at least until worlds.
If you are or have been a TO for any event at least as competitive asn a GNK, we invite you to volunteer to participate in making the judging guidelines. There will be a separate private group PM thread for the actual brainstorming and refining, so for now just post what you’ve TOed to volunteer. We realize there will be many non-TOs who will want to contribute, but a public discussion will probably get out of hand so we are limiting it to TOs for now. After we get a first draft, we’ll post it and solicit feedback from anyone (mostly, is anything really important missing).
Thanks to @Ravlin for the idea.
