Game Rules wrote:Heckling
The game is supposed to be fun. Unless one of the players asks, resist the temptation to give "advice". This is especially true in a Star Tournament. You should never interfere with a Duel in a Tournament Server. You will be removed from the server, even if you are a participant. Heckling a player is also poor practice, and a player is within their rights to tell you to stop, and report you if you do not.


I had to remove some people from the previous ST server for this and I thought I'd remind everyone.

To keep the tournament scene fair for everyone, we can't allow every spectator to hand out tips to the duelists. If you are caught doing this, the head judge can remove you from the server at his/her own discretion (not the duelists themselves), regardless of whether or not you're a participant - this would mean an immeadiate disqualification (with prize).

Have fun, play fair, and good luck gais.

that would be something you mention. If you dont know whether or not what happened is actually allowed or not, then call a judge over and let a judge decide.

All Elle is saying (for the most part) is dont say anything people could consider "advice".

Spectators are always encouraged to alert an illegal gamestate to the players and a judge. There is no coaching there, as maintaining the gamestate is in everyone's interest.

this should remain stickied imho.
This issue has arisen plenty in the past few weeks and w should have a concrete thread to support this as a rule. Also, asking someone to leave because they mention that the gamestate is in disrepair is equally silly and similar to cheating. If that player has not interrupted your duel except to mention a misplay(irrep gamestate) that is not classified as trolling your duel.(obviously.)
