Tournament Rules & Guidelines


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


  • Please read through all rules and instructions carefully.

  • Please vote fairly. You can vote for no more than one competitor for each respective match and for one time only. If there is a case of excessive cheating, the entire tournament will be shut down.

  • Commenting: You are allowed to give as much support to a contestant as much as you want to a reasonable degree as well as critically compare her with her opponent(s) as long as you do it civilly and have legitimate reasons to back your argument up. However, any kind of childish bashing towards any of the contestants or other commenters will be marked as spam.
    People are going to have different opinions and different candidates they will support. Please remember and respect that.

  • If you have any questions regarding anything about the tournament, please don’t hesitate to leave it in a comment or email me at eksentrick.xiaojie@gmail.com. I will try my best to reply back to you as soon as I can.
