It has been said that due to “Harsh Circumstances and foul rulings” Team PUFF was “given” the victory over team DREAMHACK, this couldn’t be farther from the truth.
Here at EAX we pride ourselves on keeping things fair and balanced, we do not favor one team over another, nor do we “support” a singular team, we stand behind ALL our teams, from new entries to seasoned veterans.
And to further elaborate should one of our: real-life friends” be in a team which is questioning gameplay, player or even a specific instance the matter will be ruled upon by ANOTHER EAX admin member to prevent bias decisions and only truthful and honest rulings will be made
It is stipulated in our rules and regulations for each and every league that “ANY streaming of a match WILL BE DONE SO WITH A TIME-DELAY” and “Streaming may only take place should BOTH teams agree or is a final and an EAX APPROVED streamer is allocated”. We have, from day one, strived to provide a stream with a delay to eliminate any form of stream-sniping and with the new addition to our streaming roster we have been granted that ability, hence it was implemented with immediate effect.
No measure to too strict or too loose to ensure all our teams are on equal footing, ANY and ALL infringements will be investigated and punished should it be required. Everyone is free to petition these rulings WITH the support of evidence.
Infringements with extreme and generally immediate effects are Cheating, RACISM, SEXISM, Harassment and similar acts of misbehavior.
Within reason the EAX Admin team will try to accommodate certain requests, and any kind of game changes made 30 min before the match is due to start is highly disruptive and often unfair, example map change or in the event of a scheduled stream, a change of streamer, people are asked well ahead of times and as a courtesy to them and their time, no change will be made whatsoever, so long as all rules and regulations are followed respectfully.
We at EAX are not completely heartless and bans will be lifted (Pending reason for the ban) at a certain stage, were firm believers in 2nd chances but be forewarned, a 2nd infringement will result in a harsher ban up to and including permanent.
No one is perfect and in the event that an EAX Admin has made a mistake, it will be rectified immediately and all punishments uplifted. So should you feel that this is the case feel free to question it but please support it with physical proof, Verbal begging and pleading will not sway rulings. And should you wish to lodge a complaint, as in our rules and regulations, please make use of the screenshot function of the infringement so we have proof on our end validating the punishment on the player or team in question.
With great respect comes a mutual understanding and fewer fights and disagreements. Use your head and before you lose your cool and send a racist or sexist or IST-ist remarking, consider how you would feel receiving that kind of message. Let us all be mature adults and game on!
