~ ~ ~ LEAGUE RULES ~ ~ ~






PogoBrats is a multi game league.
We hope you enjoy your games in PogoBrats.
Please read these rules carefully,
the objective is to make this fun and fair for all..
Pogobrats is a fun loving league and we are family oriented,
so we want to let you know up front
what we will and will not tolerate
while playing tours and ladder games.
While you may not agree with the rules or the penalties,
failure to adhere to the rules can and will result in
suspension time or banning from league play
Please check calendars and register for tours before time to start tour
Also be in room and ready to play on TIME PLEASE!!
Lateness holds up tours, then players are unhappy waiting.
Tours will be closed by 5mins after start time, no later , unless it is a partners tour and tour is uneven.
If you are registered but not in room, you will be put on a timer.
So please to save drama and players getting upset... be on time!!!! Thanks

STAFF

The staff of PogoBrats works very hard to
see to it that our games are fun for everyone..
They do this many times without even a thank you.
They are all volunteering their time so PLEASE
show them the RESPECT that they deserve..
Anyone harassing or disrespecting the staff,
causing disruptions that hold up tournaments,
or doing anything that keeps the td's from carrying
out their responsibilities will result in
3 to 7 days in the penalty box.
Continuous harassment could result in removal and banning from the league..

Boxing/Banning

Normal boxing is first offense.. 3days,
second offense 5 days third offense banned.
This is for same offense.. Depending on the
severity of the offense boxing can start at 5 days
and then banned if the offense occurs again.

Profanity

We expect our members to refrain from using profanity
in the lobby or at tourney and league tables.
We understand that we are all adults,
however, profanity is offensive to some
and we want this league to be fun for everyone.
Anyone.. using profanity will be warned the 1st time, then if it continues the
player will be boxed according to the
severity of the situation.

Accusations of Cheating

ACCUSING A PLAYER OF CHEATING IS FORBIDEN IN LOBBYS.
Please take host to private chat or a table.
Cheating is very hard to prove.
So unless you have absolute proof
that the host can see with their own eyes,
DON'T ACCUSE ANYONE!!
Some rules to go by to prevent accusations (hopefully)are
1. NO talking on im's with your partner while playing in a tour
2. People living in same household
may NOT be partners in any partners tour.
3. Please turn off instant messages while in a partners tour
4.NO table talk about anything in your hand
5.NO WATCHING ALLOWED AT THE TABLES
ONLY THE HOST AND/OR ADMIN ARE ALLOWED TO VISIT TABLES
IF THERE IS A PROBLEM, PLEASE NOTIFY THE HOST IMMEDIATELY
AND THE HOST WILL COME TO RESOLVE IT
6. PLEASE YOU MUST STAY AT THE TABLE UNTIL ALL PARTIES HAVE REPORTED
......WINNER/LOSER...
IF THERE IS A DISPUTE THEN HOST CAN VERIFY BY
COMING IN AND LOOKING AT SCORES
IF A DISPUTE OCCURS AND THE TABLE IS EMPTY,
THE GAME WILL BE REPLAYED WITH THE HOST AS WITNESS
THE HOST HAS FINAL SAY IN ALL DISPUTES!
IF YOUR OPPONENT IS MISSING PLEASE ALERT THE TD/HOST
AND THEY WILL BE PLACED ON TIMER
1ST TIME YOU WILL HAVE 7 MINUTES TO GET BACK
2ND TIME YOU WILL HAVE 5 MINUTES TO GET BACK
3 RD TIME YOU WILL BE DQ'D

Drama

DRAMA FREE IS VERY IMPORTANT TO BRATS!!
If this occurs, it can be a penalty in the box
up to 5 days, depending on the amount of drama caused.
Unsuitable Names
If we receive complaints about a member's name
and it is a re-occurring complaint then we'll
ask the member to change their name to a less offensive name..

of monitary value in lobby's or shout box will be suspended
