GENERAL GAMEPLAY INFORMATION
Rankings during the tournament will be based on the USQ tiebreaker policy. The primary comparison will be win percentage, followed by head-to-head, then win record before snitch catch, then quaffle points against, then quaffle points for, and then snitch catch percentage.
Please note that the USQ forfeit procedure will be in effect during this event. Teams who forfeit a match may be required to forfeit the remainder of their scheduled games and may be subject to disqualification from the remainder of the tournament. Teams who are disqualified from their regional championship are ineligible to compete at US Quidditch Cup 13 through either a bid earned at the regional championship or an at large bid. This includes bids that were already earned at the event prior to the disqualification.
Forfeits done in game are reviewed on a case-by-case basis for both forfeiting the rest of the tournament and disqualification.
Forfeits due to violations of tournament policy will always result in automatic disqualification.
Forfeits done before the game begins will always cause the team to forfeit the rest of the tournament, and will be reviewed for disqualification.
