W3WGL Rules. Very Happy

Every manager must read these rules and so must their players. (IMPORTANT!)

The admin can modify the rules when he want and he can make decisions outside the regulation if this is necessary.

1. Definitions

1.1. Clan: An association of players, building a managed team is called a “clan” in the following. Every clan needs to have a web presence, including a roster and information upon the clan structure and the official clan representatives. Clans can apply for an invitation to be able to attend qualification events for W3WGL during the application period which will be announced on www.w3wgl.ze.tc
1.2. Teams and Team Manager: The clans are announcing line-ups of four (5) players. Those line-ups are called teams in the following. Each clan announces a responsible clan member, making decisions and representing the clan in front of the league admins: a Team Manager is responsible for it's Clan.
1.3. Players: Players attending W3WGL must be part of one and only one clan. A player is not allowed to represent another clan online or offline, which includes all possible Warcraft III gaming activities in national and international tournaments and leagues. It also includes that a player is not allowed to play under the name of a different clan or wear another clan’s uniform. Excluded from this rule are tournaments and leagues officially offered by Blizzard Entertainment and venues not offering prize money. Players are also allowed to represent a regional allstar team or a national team in special competitions.
