Moderators / admins can see the chat panel, and if your opponent didn't come or didn't leave a message, you will be forwarded to the next round, but with no win counted in profile.
- Forwarded players won't get win ( in profile ) for the game in which they got forwarded; wins / looses will be added only for games that will be played. Also, a player who will get disqualified or gets 2 bad points ( and his opponent gets forwarded ) won't get a tournament loose in profile.
- Players that were forwarded in a round, because their opponent didn't show up for game, will have the "@" sign before their name, in the tournament brackets.
Note : Disqualified players in a tournament will still receive wins in profile, for the wins that they achieved in the respective tournament.
- Tournaments will be forwarded to the next round when all games from a round are finished, or tie decided.

Also, semifinals for 32/64 slots tournament are played Bo3.
