General Rules

This page will explain general rules and regulations of all future events. The list goes like so:

  1. BYOC – Bring your own Controller/Stick. You are responsible for having a pad controller or arcade stick to play on. This controller must adhere to tournament rules and be available to you when your match is called. Lending your controller to another player and therefore not having it when your match is called is not a valid excuse for delaying the tournament. Be warned that in this situation you may receive a loss if you are delaying the bracket.
  2. Respect everyone around and the environment – Please treat the tournament organizers, fellow players, and venue with respect.  We are guests in every venue that we use and that demands the same amount of respect as your own homes. As a not for profit community driven organization, if anything were to happen to ruin the relationships we have built with the venues we’ve used it could greatly affect all of our future events.  If you do not show a proper amount of respect at our tournaments we will not hesitate to remove you from the premise.
  3. Trash-talk – Cheering and jeering from the crowd is perfectly fine, as is a healthy level of trash talking and playful banter. However, if you cross the line into malicious, threatening, or discriminatory hate you will be thrown out of the venue. Do not try to intentionally make other attendees uncomfortable. Control yourself and treat others with respect.
  4. Equipment – Do not touch any console without consulting any of our executives or ask the owner of the station first before touching it. Games are setup prior to the start of a tournament to allow players a chance to warm up and while a tournament is in progress no station shall be used for casual play.
  5. Player Expectations: – It is up to the player to know the tournament location, day and schedule. We try to have the event information posted well ahead of time so players can book off work if needed. If something comes up for a player please let the tournament director know as soon as possible so that we can try our best to accommodate your situation.
  6. Casuals – Casual Matches happen, pretty much anything can go, from trash-talking to whatever. Rule 3 doesn’t apply for casual matches, we encourage you to play the games you wanna play but please be aware, you might be asked to shut off or make way for a tournament match.
  7. Collusion of any kind with your competitors is considered cheating.  If the Tournament Director determines that any competitor is colluding to manipulate the results or intentionally under performing, the collaborating players may be immediately disqualified.  This determination is to be made at the sole discretion of the Tournament Director.  Anyone disqualified in this manner forfeits all rights to any titles or prizes they might have otherwise earned for that tournament. Determinations are made at the sole discretion of the Tournament Directors. Bracket runners cannot, and will not, make this determination.
  8. Chipdamage has a zero tolerance policy toward violence, threats of violence, intimidation, and other forms of thuggery. Any threat of violence, extreme intimidation, or violence of any kind will result in an immediate and lifetime ban.
  9. Theft – If there a person is caught stealing at a Chipdamage event, that person will be permanently banned from all Games on Campus / Chipdamage Events, including those that are in collaboration with other groups. This is a zero tolerance issue and will be strictly enforced
