Internet Connectivity While an ethernet connection is not required, it is highly recommended in order to not risk a DQ as a result of a failed connection test (see below). Ideally, players should have an upload speed above 5 Mbit/s and jitter under 6 ms. Connections can be checked at cloudflare.com. If any connection issues arise during a set, a player may call for a Tournament Organizer to perform a connection test. This must be done before the set is over. If the set is completed before a connection test is called, the results of that set will stand regardless of the outcome of the connection test. The connection test will prioritize, in this order, The player with the ethernet connection The player with the clearly better result on cloudflare.com (MAKE SURE TO NOT POST OR BLURRY OUT YOUR IP ADDRESS!) The player located in the US, Canada or Mexico (excluding Alaska and Hawaii)
Any subjects, conflicts or other matters not covered by the ruleset will be determined by the Tournament Organizers in their sole discretion. Any remaining questions may be asked via DMs to the tournament organizers or through the Gates of Heaven Discord.
