Gamestah Player Code of Conduct

The Gamestah Code of Conduct describes the responsibilities of all players that enter Gamestah Tournaments. All players who enter Gamestah Tournaments must agree to abide by the Player Code of Conduct.

In principle, the Player Code of Conduct is intended to foster a community of competitive yet constructive players and teams.

1. Be respectful to each other

While a certain level of competitive banter is expected – and allowed – players are expected to be respectful to each other, the League admins and broadcasters.

2. Gamestah Sponsors

Gamestah’s Tournaments would not be possible without the on-going support of our Sponsors. In some cases, Sponsors provide cash prizes, in others, Sponsors provide goods, services or licenses as prizes.
Players agree not to disparage prizes, Sponsors or Sponsor promotions by Gamestah.

3. Gamestah Staff

Gamestah staff put in many hours of work to make sure Tournaments run smoothly. Players should treat Gamestah staff with respect and appreciation for the hard work they do.

4. Applicability

The Player Code of Conduct applies to all player conduct, including, but not limited to, conduct on the following:

Any Discord chat
Twitch chat
Any discussion forums
In-game chat
Interviews

5. Warnings

Teams or players that breach the Player Code of Conduct will receive a series of warnings from the admins. Warnings will persist from one Tournament to the next. Good behaviour will result in the warnings decaying.

In severe breaches the Gamestah Admin team may forgo any warnings and proceed directly to Penalties.

6. Penalties
6.1 Bans

Teams or players that accumulate three (3) warnings may be banned for one or more subsequent Gamestah Tournaments,, subject to the admins’ decision. In addition, players may be banned from Gamestah’s online communities (e.g. Discord, Twitch chat, etc.).

6.2 Permabans

In severe cases of breaches a player may be permabanned from Gamestah events and/or online communities. Players who have been permabanned do not have any right of appeal.

In addition, any attempts to circumvent a ban will result in permanent banning from Gamestah events in the future.

7. Right of Appeal

Players who have received a warning or a ban have the right to an appeal. Appeals should be lodged by email to chrisis@gamestah.com.

Under no circumstances may players appeal their warnings or penalties by contacting Gamestah admins or staff on Discord, Twitter, or any other method other than an email to chrisis@gamestah.com.

Appeals will be considered by the owners of Gamestah who may request a third party’s input into the appeal.
