How to Deal With Problems
A. Handling Lag:
Any Players foreseeing lag problems should turn all graphics options to the lowest possible settings before the start of a game.
If a game begins to lag badly, pause and try to fix any possible problems. All players should turn down graphics settings to the minimum. Players should close all outside applications that might slow performance. If there is no improvement, both Clans can agree to restart the game.
If one Clan deems the lag playable, and does not want to restart, the game must be continued. If a Clan Operator suspects an opponent is "laming" by choosing to play through terrible lag just to annoy or force a resign, they should play out the game, then report it to the MaZeCity Staff.
If one clan is clearly winning when the lag begins, they can opt to post the game for an administrative decision rather than restart or continue. Any admin decision in this case will be final.
B. Handling Drops:
If a player's connection aborts, the game must be restored (restarted, if game lasted less than 10 minutes). If one team's connection aborts three times in an attempt to play a game, the game is automatically lost.
All saved games must be restored within 20 minutes.
If the game cannot be restored due to technical reasons, then the game is automatically lost by the the clan with the technical difficulties. Exception: If the losing clan was clearly ahead at the time the game crashed they may petition the MaZeCity Staff to decide.
C. Handling Map Bugs:
If a serious map bug - distinct factors that would adversely affect one Clan outside of their control - is discovered in the first 5 minutes of the game, a Clan may demand a restart.
The recorded game must be submitted to the MaZeCity Staff for verification. If no such bug existed, or if it is determined that the restart was demanded for other reasons, the Clan will receive an administrative loss.
If a map bug is discovered after 5 minutes, the game may not be restarted on account of it.
If you have any questions about the rules, please feel free to contact a MaZeCity Staff member at any time. Good luck and have fun!
