An issue recently came up in Division B, where 2 games were created between BIA and GG on Strat ME. We resolved that we would replay one tiebreaking game between them, which would be created by the CL bot, enabling the tournament to proceed as normal.
However, another game (https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer?GameID=13518338
) was created by an account masquerading as the Clan League bot (https://www.warlight.net/Profile?p=1448743876
), which is operated by Oh (https://www.warlight.net/Profile?p=9650427823
This completely screwed up the automated scorekeeping of the Strat ME 1v1 tournament in Division B, since BIA and GG joined the false game, and didn't join the game created by the bot. We spent time manually updating the scoresheet with the new games, since the CLOT didn't recognize it and now we have been forced to disable that tournament and perform the rest of the scorekeeping of that tournament manually.
This has caused significant extra work to run of the event, which already takes up a lot of time for both us, but especially MotD. While we understand that in this case it was intended as a joke, the fact that it impacted the running of the event means we have to take it seriously. We have said in the rules that spamming and disruption of the event could result in a ban from the league following a warning.
We will consider this to be that warning, both to Oh and the Warlight community at large. The next time someone does something like this happens which disrupts the event, we will institute a ban on those responsible.
