Tournament cancellation

If we have to cancel an event for any reason, we'll make every effort to compensate players in the fairest way possible.

We'll base compensation methods on the exact circumstances and timing of the cancellation.

Possible reasons for cancellation are:

  • Minimum number of players not reached
  • Server issues

When a tournament needs to be canceled because of a server crash or other issues, it may need to be rolled forward or rolled back, and players will be compensated as described in the 'Cancellations' section of our Tournament rules.
