Edited because I was asked nicely.   

7:20 PM - Rails: Team HCP apologizes to the viewers for going onto a Russian server prior to the match, and for wasting viewers' time pregame.
7:21 PM - Rails: that sound fair?
7:21 PM - purple: yes

Can't type a full post currently.

Other teams have literally abused rules and tried to go behind admins backs and yet they aren’t punished at all.

So report them. Bystander effect is no reason to complain :)

There is no rule about players trolling in twitch chat, plus mods can ban them.

HCP are withdrawing from this joke then.  We spent 8 minutes out of a total 15 that we are allotted in a server that I guess wasn’t deemed to be playable by someone who always claimed he isn’t an admin.  Other teams have literally abused rules and tried to go behind admins backs and yet they aren’t punished at all.  There is no rule about players trolling in twitch chat, plus mods can ban them.  Not a single admin I’ve spoken to agrees with this decision, but enjoy your power trip.  You’re a fucking joke kissme.     

hey.

I'm pretty sure the penalty for that was a -700 point penalty on them, but it was never clear. I don't know how that factored into the final decision (KissMe didn't consult myself nor Fig before making this call, as is his right as tournament director).
I look forward to this post being taken down so that you can continue running a corrupt system for a game that has less teams then I can count with one hand.

So basically the outcome of the tournament is being sabotaged by kissme, just because someone hurt his feelings and he makes the rules. Kissme dude, it's just some guys joking around, it's like purple said, it barely took any time, nor would they have ever done it if they knew this would be the outcome. I get a lot of effort went into organizing this tournament, and trust me, all the decent people here respect that, definitely HCP as well, but do you really want BOT to be remembered as that tourny where that certain shit went down. Just for once, let's have a normal, clean tournament. HCP and Noxious can apologize, you can accept their apology, and we fucking move on, that's life, isn't it?

Disagree they have been trolling and playing racist shit in their warrooms without regard for anyone. Even conspired to make this match a troll despite the fact that it violates just about the entire unsportsmanlike conduct section.

They have a lot more to apologize for than one match ^___^

I'd rather have shit go down earlier in the tournament than once again let trolly top tier players slide and make everyone else ask why they bother.

Dunno why HCP got a penalty to begin with.
Our team (Noxious) opted to not get stressed over about trying really hard to do a task that was impossible in our vision. So we decided to dick and troll around for our side. We just wanted to have fun, rather than just getting mad.
Now, if you're playing against a team that is trolling and dicking around, it's hard to actually play seriously against them. That's what I find stupid about this, it wasn't really HCP's fault. No one can take something serious if the other half isn't.
All in all, Noxious was the only team to deserve a penalty.
hey.

PingWins vs Euonym No Mercy Map 4: In the saferoom for Euonym's survivor team PingWins spawned a charger in the saferoom after the door was already closed, charged the survivor then typed !spec when it was called out, and one of the players answered back "What's the problem?". The lost score from the charger was added back to the survivors in reaction. This was clearly "unsportsmanlike" and other than that one rule it also violates any rule regarding exploits in a tournament. Why is PingWins still unpunished for the next game in a tournament of supposed "no tolerance"? HCP is held to a higher standard than other teams?

Oh... Was this penalty imposed by an actual admin of this tournament? I thought Kiss Me wasn't an authorized admin during Serenity vs Elements of Surprise when the Home/Away vs Neutral server issue was discussed.

So report them. Bystander effect is no reason to complain :)

By not doing anything when an unjust decision is made with piles of evidence where the same things with different magnitudes (some higher) have happened you are also participating in the Bystander effect bud.
