Something happened during Regional tournaments in Europe, I wasn’t there so I’ll just copy what I read on Facebook for all to see here. My question is: have you already had this kind of problem? What should be done, in this case in particular, and for all tournaments in general? Is it the TO’s fault?

It appears that mtgred used his regional bye twice already (Brussels in belgium and Leiden in Netherlands).
That kind of behaviour is absolutely unacceptable.
The netrunner community of Liege City Grid isn’t pleased, sir. I bet it will not be the only one.
Spread the word.

Yep, I agree with Jérémie. I blame myself for not having done my research when you handed over the regionals bye, but generally that’s just not nice and I wouldn’t like to see that again. We are building the community based on how nice everyone is and thus I don’t have have to research everyone’s history when they visit one of the tournaments I’m TOing/ Head Judging.
Having said that, I would like not to make too much of a big deal out of this and just leave it as it is for now. People have to take note of this situation though and understand that this is just unacceptable, and next time, I won’t hesitate DQing anyone that will show such behaviour. I won’t really care how far they travelled or what not.

Apparently mtgred forgot to bring his card at brussels regional and the TO considered it was ok anyway. Guess he used it in Netherlands since he had not give it away on the previous regional event.

I was late at the tournament in Leiden. Players were supposed hand their decklist at 10h20 at the latest. I actually arrived at 10h50 with no decklist ready. I was affraid of getting a game loss for late arrival as it was the case in the Store Championship in Ghent where i was also late. The bye was a good excuse to buy time to write the decklists without delaying the tournament. I shouldn’t have done it and would like to apologize for the bad behaviour.
