SirProok has been disqualified from the Last Chance Qualifier for failure to submit deck lists by the deadline.
We wanted to add clarity around this situation.
During all of the Masters Series Qualifiers, we have used Discord to communicate directly with the participants, whether it was for questions, disputes or special circumstances. A private channel was created for top 8 participants each week, with a special tag given to each player. This private channel was used to communicate to them directly when to send bans and coordinate with players whose match was to be cast and when. All players in the Last Chance Qualifer, were apart of at least 1 top 8 during the MSQs. Like the MSQs, a private channel was created and an unique role/tag given to the players.
For the LCQ, it was decided that deck lists would be due 48 hrs prior to the event to allow for extra time for production and since there was already an extended period of time of testing for the players. This was communicated via private Discord channel on June 13th that deck lists would be due by Friday June 21st at 12:00pm EDT and that the LCQ would take place on Sunday June 23rd at 12:00pm EDT. This was again communicated on Wednesday June 19th, Thursday June 20th and again a few hours before deadline on Friday June 21st. Each time all players were pinged via unique role/tag. In order for this ping to go unnoticed, a participant would have to manually mute the specific MSQ server and change s multiple specific notification settings . The participant would also simply have to not check the channel specific to the event.
All participants submitted their deck lists on time to the admin team, except SirProok. SirProok submitted his lists at 5:55pm EDT. The admin team discussed and made the decision to DQ SirProok to stay consistent with all other prior rulings made throughout the events. Also allowing a player to submit deck lists later than the other players opens up other potential issues that could compromise competitive integrity.
In regards to SirProok's circumstance involving a death in the family; we are extremely sorry to hear of SirProok's loss. This devastating situation, plus the involvement in a family wedding, was brought to the attention of the admin team upon his late submission. Though there is no timeline for grieving, the deadline was announced after the loss. There was no communication received by the administration team or tournament organizer prior to this in regards to any circumstances that may require an extension to submit deck lists."
It is an unfortunate circumstance as it is the final event before the Finals at QuakeCon. The admin team made the decision that upholds competitive integrity and consistency for all players involved since the beginning of the qualifiers.
The bracket will not change and SirProok's opponent will simply receive a bye. The reason for this being that players had knowledge and were given the anticipated bracket that could have potentially effected their entire lineup.
