Disconnections:

• Teams are persuaded to save their games frequently during a match in order to compensate for disconnects

• Disconnect before a hero has been killed: match restart

•Disconnect after a hero has been killed: If a save game has been made within the last 15 minutes, then consult the rule below. If not then the game continues without the disconnected player.

• If team 1 have killed 5+ heroes more than team 2 during the period of the last save game and the disconnection, then the disconnect is in the favor of team 1. For example:
- At the time of the save game the score is 35-35
- At the time of the disconnection the score is 42-37 for team 1
-Since team 1 have killed 5+ heroes more than team 2, team 1 may now choose whether to continue the match or remake from the save game.
- An Aegis counts for 1 kill.
- A tower counts for 3 kills when calculating this, down.
- A rax counts for 5 kills.
• The teams must save game right after first blood

• If neither team is in advantage then an admin should be consulted, unless teams can agree to a decision by themselves.

•After a remake all players have to pick the same heroes as before, buys the same items and must go to the same starting lane. On initial creep contact, the players may change lane

• If the team disconnects more than 3 times, then the opposing team may chose to continue the match without the dropped player.

• If a disconnected player cannot be present within 20 minutes after he discs, game will continue without that player.

•It is allowed to use a disconnected hero, but it is not allowed to give his items to other players or buy any item for the hero. His Item should be remained on himself only.

These rules are for the Gamer.LK Clans DOTA League (GCDL) tournament and are subject to modification in the following aspects:
- Use of most recent stable version release of each official game within Organizers' own discretion.
- In-game settings and required factors necessitated by use of most recent patch version/release.


Map Hack Detection  

Since there are instances of players using a map hack the game will be paused at a random point during the game and all 5 players of both teams will be required to give screen shots of that moment after the game. IF any of the players fail to give the screen shot the team will be given an automatic loss. This process will be repeated in case of a reload of a saved game

- Sharing of item is allowed as long as the game permits.
- It is not allow to suicide to pass Rapier.

the game allows you to share the rapier so i think this rule needs to be clarified.

How fair is CM? Does the random selection favour the sentinel side in most cases? What i mean is do sentinel get to pick/ban first most of the time in CM when random selection is on?

Update: Only authorised referees are allowed to observe matches. It is strictly forbidden to join the game if you are not actually taking part in that particular match.

Giving the referees grief about not being able to observe a match live will result in a warning and then disqualification of the relevant team.

If anyone has problems with the organisers selection of referees, we're more than happy to discuss it with you'll :)
