Any player found selling items himself will be suspended for 1 match further more giving his team an auto loss.

The administration is there to plan, guarantee and maintain a fair run of the tournament. In case of a dispute, the administration will take the case with both team captains.

The SSDL administration will always act in the interest of the tournament, fair play, the players and the spectators. The goal is to prevent default losses and guarantee an exciting league for everybody. However the rulings will be strict depending on the intentions and behaviors of the teams involved in a dispute.

The administration can be reached in the wdy clan channel on
(/join clan wdy) or via the forums at

Abusive and disrespectful behavior towards admins and other participants will be punished with all severity.
